New York Rangers Team News
The New York Rangers enter the new season as legitimate title contenders. After surprising everyone last year by making the Eastern Conference Final, they kept the most of their assets and only made one major change. The Rangers signed Vincent Trocheck from the Carolina Hurricanes, replacing one of their primary contributors and co-captain Ryan Strome, who signed with the Anaheim Ducks as an unrestricted free agent.
Many players who are competing for a starting spot will get a chance in the opening preseason game. The lineup announced by the Rangers looks like a very strange concoction, but nevertheless features many of their regulars and stars.
New York Islanders Team News
After they failed to reach the playoffs for the first time in the last four years, many expected the Islanders to reshuffle their roster and sign some big names. However, they had a pretty quiet offseason and decided to rely on their old core along with some promising up-and-coming players.
The biggest change in the organization hapened in the coaching department. After Barry Trotz was fired, general manager Lou Lamoriello promoted Lane Lambert from his assistant role; a move that should preserve the chemistry between the coaching staff and the players, but also freshen up the team tactics.
