The New York Rangers concluded their busy offseason by filling out their top six, adding two veteran forwards in the ever consistent David Perron and rugged two way forward Marcus Foligno.
They may not be the flashiest names available on the open market, but GM Shank feels the value they can provide will prove worthy of their $7.9m and $5m cap hits respectively. Perhaps quietly, Perron has put up no less than 16 goals and 46 points in each of the last 5 seasons, and has been near a point per game player the last 4. Marcus Foligno looks to provide some physicality in the Rangers top 6, which was the main thing they were lacking up until now.
The Rangers lineup seems set now with training camp opening up soon, perhaps only adding some farm players and depth pieces. GM Shank seems to be living up to his promise to the fans of New York, but only time will tell if he’s done enough to add up to a playoff appearance.
