Sometimes, things don’t always go according to plan. For the 2017-18 New York Rangers, that’s been the case. More was expected out of the revamped roster GM Jeff Gorton put together. However, the lack of center depth and a strong … Continue reading

Playing Cody McLeod over Paul Carey is as absurd as Vesey on fourth line
