So far, all of Chris Drury’s moves have been to beef up the bottom six and balance the lineup. Barclay Goodrow is expected to play a prominent role on the third line.

Ryan Reaves fully changes the dynamic of the team bringing a level of toughness not seen in years. Sammy Blais is expected to also be a key player on a revamped 4th line.

The signing of Patrik Nemeth is to stabilize the Rangers third pair defense. He is expected to be paired with top prospect Nils Lundkvist, and will help mentor him.

However; the Rangers are likely not done and if they add Jack Eichel could move up the list fairly quickly.
