STATE OF THE RANGERS: We have waited about six months to say it, but Rangers hockey is finally back. The Rangers forward lines look strong, their goaltending is undeniable, and their defense has a lot of promise. Missing Marc Staal hurts, but hopefully the others can pick up the slack against a dangerous LA Kings team, that added Mike Richards in the offseason. This is the first of two games in Sweden before the Rangers come back to North America for what se...

Keys to the Rangers season
1) Marian Gaborik. He has one of the top playmaking centers in the NHL now, with Brad Richards. The Rangers must get around 40 goals, or more, from Gaborik, who would also then make a previously pathetic power play go if he’s back on his game. So in many ways, this key is about Richards, as well.
2) Health. The Rangers had a bunch of injuries to key...

Ryan Callahan, Artem Anisimov and Ruslan Fedotenko clicked from the start of Friday's season-opening overtime loss. And it was a good thing, because the Rangers' first line - centered by top free-agent signing Brad Richards - was MIA.
The Rangers continued to shuffle the deck Thursday, claiming 28-year-old defenseman Jeff Woywitka off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens and assigning would-be rookie Stu Bickel to their AHL affiliate.

The Los Angeles Kings and Buffalo Sabres feel like they did enough in the offseason to make themselves Stanley Cup contenders.
At the very least, their offseason moves made them winners in their first games.
These teams look to build on encouraging openers Saturday when they meet in Berlin in the NHL's first regular-season game played in Germany.
