Scott Burnside of ESPN looks at the Eastern Conference…
New York Rangers: No team made a bigger splash in the free-agent market than the Rangers. And having added twin centers Chris Drury and Scott Gomez, expectations are higher for the Rangers than at any time since their 1994 Stanley Cup win. Drury and Gomez have three Stanley Cup rings between them and give the team terrific depth down the middle. With Brendan Shanahan (29 goals in his first season on Broadway) back, the Rangers should boast two dangerous forward lines to complement sterling goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist, who was 37-22-8 in his sophomore season in the Rangers nets.
• So, which of Gomez or Drury gets the job of making magic with Jagr?
• Is this no-name defense strong enough to win a Stanley Cup?
• With Weekes gone, does highly touted goaltending prospect Al Montoya get a chance to strut his stuff on the big stage?
much more on all Eastern Conf. teams…
