The New York Rangers are the best hockey team of all time. It is difficult to argue that, but that is exactly what they are doing. The Rangers have been the elite team in the NHL since they won the Stanley Cup in 2009. The Rangers have won the Presidents’ Trophy four times, and have never missed the playoffs. The team has never lost in regulation. The Rangers have been a force to be reckoned with in the NHL since they won their first title in 1967.
All the Rangers have done is win a Stanley Cup and win a Presidents Trophy. You are probably thinking, “How are they the best hockey team?” Well, there are a few reasons why they are the best. If you are not a hockey fan, you are probably wondering “How come the Rangers are the best team, and not the Boston Bruins?” Well, the Rangers beat the Bruins in the 2011 playoffs, and won in four straight in the 2010 playoffs.
The Rangers were able to take the series in a shootout last year, and were able to win the Presidents Trophy, and they are the only team in the NHL to have won three consecutive Presidents Trophies. They don’t have a lot of stars, but they are a well-oiled machine, and they have so much talent, they easily beat the teams that other teams don’t have the money to sign.
The Rangers’ 2012 season is looking like it will kick into high gear. They have one of the best defenses in the National Hockey League, and a team full of young, talented players.
The 2012-2013 New York Rangers are a great example of how teams can develop through the draft. The Rangers were one of the worst teams in the league last year, but they were able to take players in the second and fourth round. This is one of the benefits of being in a rebuilding league like the NHL. The best teams in the NHL can often go to the draft when most other teams in the league have already had their players signed to deals.
While it’s not an exact science, I do think that the Rangers deserve credit for picking up a number of solid players during the draft. This is especially true because they also have an excellent system of developing young players through the system of development camps. It’s a process that often involves the draft in order to get the highest quality players at the draft and then continue with development camps to provide players with the best chance to develop.
A good hockey team must always have the ability to play consistently in the playoffs. But a good hockey team must also have the ability to pick up the pieces and move on to the next season. The way the Rangers did that is with a good system of developing their players during development camps. This has involved a number of players being signed to long-term deals. This gives the Rangers the ability to draft and develop their own players and then sign those players to long-term deals.
This is what we saw the Rangers do when they drafted and developed their own players. At the draft, the Rangers got Alexei Kovalev and Evander Kane, and then the Rangers signed both of them to long-term deals. Then at the beginning of the season Kovalev was sent down to the AHL to help out with injury recovery. At one point during the season Kovalev was the Rangers’ top scorer. The same thing happened with Kane.
Another Rangers team, the Mighty Ducks, used the same development system. The Mighty Ducks developed most of their players for free over the first three seasons, but in the fourth season they signed them for long-term deals. In that fourth season the Mighty Ducks got an absolute star. So if you’d like to add a team to your roster that is as good as it gets the Rangers would be the team to do it.
The Rangers have been consistently one of the best teams in the league for a long time now. They have the best forward, defense, and goaltending in the league. But a year ago the Rangers got an absolute superstar. He is the best player in the league, period. When the Rangers won their last game, the fans were chanting “Go Rangers,” in complete and utter disbelief. The Rangers are the best hockey team in the league right now. It’s no accident.
