Now it’s time to grade the left wingers of the New York Rangers.
We loved the heat our grade for John Mitchell brought to our comments section, it was great. But then again, hater’s who consistently hate on one name will always go after guys like Mitchell, especially in New York. And yes, for the ones who simply cannot understand what we have done every season for the last 10 seasons, we are all grading together on the same system. And please, keep the comments coming.
Let’s shift our attention over to the left side of the ice now and take a look at Carl Hagelin and other’s.
Miller: It was a lost year all the way around for Dubi. I kept waiting for him to get on track offensively but he finished the season with a career-low 10 goals and did virtually nothing in the postseason even when healthy.
Garabedian: Two months ago I couldn’t wait to say goodbye to Feds after the season, but his excellent play late in the season and in the postseason showed me he has something left in the tank. I actually want him back next season now and would be fine with him on the fourth line for another year.
Schoeller: I was pleasantly surprised by Hagelin’s maturity, skills, and of course, his speed. The kid will be a huge asset in coming seasons if he continues to improve and impress with a Blueshirt on.
Decker: It’s kind of unfair to give Kreider a very low grade or a very high grade simply because he didn’t play in nearly enough games to warrant a pass or a fail, but from what I did see from him, I am very impressed. His speed, size, and passion leave nothing to be desired and I, along with many other Rangers fans, are certainly looking forward to seeing what he can do in his first full season next year.
Ragus: Mike Rupp brought to this team what we all knew he was going to bring to this team, leadership. Yes, a few timely goals that helped the Rangers win games, some nice fights and all but the real reasons Rupp was brought here was for his leadership and his playoff experience. His leadership was proven with his tutelage of Chris Kreider and others. But the haters are still going to hate and will still blast Rupp unfortunately.
In a nutshell the Rangers got some nice, consistent player from the left side of their roster. Unfortunately, the best their left side had to offer was when Chris Kreider put on a Rangers jersey for the first time and played in the playoffs. The future is bright for this team with the likes of Kreider and Hagelin with more prospects waiting in the wings.
