This is what the New York Rangers appear to be after locking up Brad Richards (via Free Agency), Brian Boyle, Derek Stepan, Artem Anisimov and Erik Christensen.
Brad Richards is definitely the club’s No. 1 center, something the team has been lacking the last few seasons. The team hopes he will be able to get winer Marian Gaborik back to the way he played a few seasons ago when he scored over 40 goals. Richards is someone, if healthy, who can put up a lot of points and that is exactly what the Rangers will be paying him to do.
Brian Boyle recently resigned with the team for three years totaling $5.1 million a season. Boyle scored over 20 goals last season and proved to be extremely valuable both on and off the ice. If he continues to improve like he did last season, this will prove to be an extremely valuable signing.
Stepan is coming off a terrific rookie season. He scored big goals, played hard at both ends of the ice and showed that he has the potential to be an extremely valuable player to the Blueshirts.
