Predicting New York Rangers’ Final 2013-14 Roster

September 12th, 2013 by Andrew Capitelli Leave a reply »
With so much uncertainty surrounding the New York Rangers as training camp opens, it’s tough to envision what exactly the team’s opening-night roster will look like.

Derek Stepan’s holdout situation, Marty Biron’s personal issue and the injuries to Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin all leave significant holes in the Rangers’ lineup. How incoming coach Alain Vigneault plugs those holes will determine how the team starts the season.

Eventually, all four players are expected to rejoin the lineup, but that won’t help the Rangers when they embark their nine-game road trip to start the season.

Thus, there should be some surprise inclusions in the opening-night roster. And as much as it’s worrisome for Vigneault that he will not be able to feature his full squad to start the season, the situation may prove opportune for a handful of players.

So, in the wake of all the drama, we’ll predict what the Rangers’ opening-night roster will be today. After the jump, we’ll break down the forwards, defensemen and goaltenders and make all the tough decisions.
