Video- Season Preview For The New York Rangers

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

The New York Rangers are trying to temper their own hype and expectations despite a busy offseason that featured talent upgrades at key positions.

New York signed free agent forward Artemi Panarin, acquired defensemen Jacob Trouba and Adam Fox in separate trades, and selected right wing Kaapo Kakko with the No. 2 pick at the 2019 NHL Draft.

Last season, the Rangers (32-36-14) finished 20 points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.

"I want people to be excited, but I'm also the voice of reason, or I'm going to try to be," said Rangers president John Davidson, who was hired May 17 to replace Glen Sather. "Two or three players don't make a team, don't make a real good team. We're in a much better spot, I think, than what we were some time ago, and it's going to be exciting, but it's still hard. It's hard to win in this league. It's hard to make the playoffs in this league. We're going to get there, but there's no magical things that you do that make it quicker or easier."


Below, watch the season preview on the Rangers.
