NHL Burning Questions: New York Rangers

Danny Wilde USA Today Sports

Welcome back to the latest entry in THN.com’s ‘Three Important Questions’ series. In this feature, we ask three big questions for every NHL team ahead of the start of the 2022-23 regular season. In this dossier, we ask three important questions about the New York Rangers.

Three burning questions for Rangers in 2022-23:

1. What can the Rangers do to ease the burden of star goalkeeper Igor Shesterkin? No goalkeeper did more for his team in the regular season last year than Shesterkin, who took home the first Vezina Cup as the best goalkeeper of the match. The 26-year-old Russian stole several games for the Blues in 2021-22, often overcoming a lackluster defensive scheme to propel Rangers into the often winning column. However, Rangers GM Chris Drury opted for a different look for the Shesterkin backup – parting ways with Alexandar Georgiev, and instead going with veteran Jaroslav Halak.
