Derek talks Rangers preseason and excitement for a New Era

What I covered in my return to Periscope is how excited I feel about the Rangers headed into a promising season along with a bright future.

Talked some about the 3-1 preseason win over the Islanders.


Vitali Kravtsov scored and looks like he belongs.

The Russian Connection of Panarin and Buchnevich clicked with Zibanejad.

My takeaway on how strong Kaapo Kakko is around the net with the puck.

Adam Fox continues to impress with smart puck decisions.

Lundqvist looked sharp as did Georgiev. Important stuff.

A look at what I think the Opening Night roster could be for now.

Plus the excitement of a new chapter in the Hudson Rivalry.
