Thoughts: 1) Happy October. Gotta tell you, that’s enough preseason for me. If they stopped right now, I’d be happy. The last two games, at least, will pretty much be the Rangers’ opening-night roster with a few players battling for the last two or three jobs. And they’ll be playing…

118 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Is it possible that this team will be faster overall than last year? Yessiree. Speed kills, and when  you replace Brian Boyle with (take your pick), replace Brad Richards with J.T. Miller, have a full season of Martin St. Louis’ wheels plus Chris Kreider from the start, maybe…
