Thankful for these Rangers projections

The Rangers have played a little over a quarter of the season. Let’s take a look at some of the Rangers top players point projections. It’s enough to make you smile this Thanksgiving.

Panarin Leads The Way

Artemiy Panarin is on pace for an incredible 114 point season with 42 goals based on his current scoring rate for the remainder of this season. This would be an incredible accomplishment that Rangers fans haven’t seen since the days of Jaromir Jagr.

Mika Zibanejad Top Center

Mika Zibanejad missed a month of the season but came back last night with a goal. If he can stay healthy he will score a whopping 82 points and top the 30 goal mark again.

What an amazing season this is turning out to be for Tony DeAngelo. He is on pace for a whopping 25 goals from the back and 64 points to lead all Blueshirt Blue-Liners. Brian Leetch like numbers for goals folks.

Kaapo Kakko WILL NOT lead NYR Rookies in Scoring

Kakko is on pace for 20 goals but barely 40 points at the moment. The rookie scoring leader right now looks to be Adam Fox who is on pace for 46 points from defense. While that may seem depressing for some fans, that’s good news for the organization. To have two impressive rookies bodes well for the future.

Strome and Buchnevich are awesome

Revelation Strome and Bonafide Buchnevich are having a season. Strome is on pace for 78 points this year and Buch is looking at 64 points himself. Regardless, this is the kind of secondary production the Rangers desperately needed and they found it in these two.

Happy Thanksgiving
