The Rangers To Announce Staff This Week

Benoit Allaire will remain as the goalie coach, and it appears that Lindy Ruff has already been announced as an assistant coach per the Rangers website. Jerry Dineen also remains as the video coach.

As for MSL, it is unlikely that he’s ready to leave his family for the rigors of NHL coaching life. Expect the Rangers to add one, maybe two more assistants this week. Former Avs head coach, Joe Sacco who hired Quinn as an assistant there remains a leading candidate.
