The Rangers finished the preseason with a record of 3-2-1, which is very unassuming. The bright spots for the blueshirts will be the likes of Marc Staal and Ryan Callahan. Drury and Gomez will have to earn their keep with a big season, but with wingers like Jagr and Shanahan, you don't think it will be very difficult.
|Jaromir Jagr||Chris Drury||Martin Straka|
|Brendan Shanahan||Scott Gomez||Sean Avery|
|Petr Prucha||Blair Betts||Marcel Hossa|
|Colton Orr||Ryan Hollweg||Ryan Callahan|
|Michal Rozsival||Paul Mara|
|Marek Malik||Thomas Pock|
|Dan Girardi||Jason Strudwick|
Now, by my calculations, the Rangers are now listed with a roster that overflows the salary cap maximum. Their figure lies at about $51.6 million, which shouldn't be a big deal to lower through the year, but it does bring some sort of concern to the management, as they won't be allowed to carry that number for too long.
