Diving into Igor Shesterkin’s 4-year contract

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe Rangers re-signed young netminder Igor Shesterkin to a 4-year contract paying him at an AAV of just short of $6M, at $5.65M. Shesterkin went 10-0-1 in his first 11 career starts. The young netminder has now taken a big living instep forward after backing up Henrik Lundqvist. The organization drafted Shesterkin in the 4th round 118th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Some Free Agency Moves That Have Had A Great Impact For The Rangers

Reading Time: 2 minutesIn the offseason, the Rangers made some moves that have benefited them and it has been a big reason why they are where they are today.

The 34-year-old defenseman Jack Johnson, who signed a one-year contract with the Rangers this past offseason, is the oldest on the team. However, on March 9 he suffered a sports hernia injury, which required season-ending surgery. So Brendan Smith, who served as a healthy scratch for the start of the season, got his turn to lead the young core. Brendan Smith’s offense has been very solid this season, registering a career-high in goals (5). Besides scoring goals,...

What is Next for the Rangers after the David Quinn Firing?

Reading Time: 3 minutesDisastrous head coach David Quinn was relieved from his duties following a lot of speculation about what the Rangers would do. He owned a record of 96-87-25 over his three seasons with the Rangers, which included one “postseason” experience where they got swept in the first round of the COVID bubble by the Hurricanes. Now, looking at this record you may be thinking he is not that bad. However, he tends to strategize his lines poorly. Quinn liked to change his line pairs continuously which led to a lack of development in chemistry between some players....

Tom Wilson: The Ultimate Goon

Reading Time: 2 minutesHe does it again folks! Tom Wilson just made another highlight-reel play, but not in a good way. Wilson is known to be the dirtiest player in the league after countless cheap shots and hits from behind. But his play against the Rangers on Monday might just be the best one yet. After the play was over, Pavel Buchnevich lightly tapped Capitals goaltender Vitek Vanecek. Tom Wilson was clearly unhappy with that, so he decided to take action. No, he did not get into a verbal disagreement or shoving match. Instead, he did something that could...
