The Rangers’ decision to clean house and give Chris Drury the keys is looking pretty good now

Maybe it would be the same. Maybe the Rangers would be preparing for the second round of the playoffs if John Davidson was still in place as team president and Jeff Gorton was still the general manager. Maybe the hierarchy would have addressed the issues of toughness and mental fortitude that hung over last season’s squad. Maybe they would have made it a priority to correct the homogeneous nature of the roster. We did not get the chance to find out whether David Quinn would have returned behind the bench, but the guess here is no. To avoid lame-duck status entering the final...

Rangers president, GM Chris Drury in market to fix unstable third line

Rangers president and general manager Chris Drury is expected to speak to the media for the first time this season after the March 21 trade deadline, which is already less than a week away. There’s a plethora of topics to address with Drury, but the coming days should reveal a lot about how the player-turned-executive views the current state of the Rangers. Whether he’s all-in on a season that exceeded expectations, or opting to be patient with the process and waiting for a better market in the offseason. One thing that is certain, however, is that retooling the third line should be...

What if Chris Drury makes no trades?

As we all try to decipher and predict what Chris Drury will do, and when, to address the obvious holes on the NY Rangers roster, one option looms large over these talks. That option is that Chris Drury makes no trades, and the Rangers go into the postseason with the roster as is. Despite how horrifying that may sound, it is a wholly realistic option that we may need to come to terms with.

The Rangers need a jolt, and it’s on Chris Drury to make it happen

The Rangers have been flat and been playing like general garbage this week, but this time around it’s easily noticed since the goaltending isn’t bailing them out. Neither Igor Shesterkin nor Alex Georgiev were able to withstand the bombardment from Minnesota and St. Louis, resulting in two very bad losses. It’s clear that the Rangers need a jolt to the lineup, as the lack of skilled depth is taking its toll.

Rangers GM Chris Drury has trade assets, but how much really?

With two weeks to go until the March 21 trade deadline, the Rangers are methodically rumbling toward their first playoff appearance in five years.

Chris Drury should act swiftly to mitigate Rangers injury depth concerns

The Rangers are a very top heavy team, with five players over 30 points but just 11 total skaters in double-digit points. That’s when fully healthy. With the recent injuries to Kaapo Kakko –likely out until after the All Star Game– and Filip Chytil, the Rangers have just 9 skaters currently in the lineup with more than 10 points on the season, highlighting the Rangers injury depth concerns. Scoring depth has been a problem all year, as noted by the Rangers being “in” on every name that hits the trade market. Now with two of their top-nine out, the problem has been exacerbated.
