The list, compiled at Kukla’s Korner, has Rick Nash at #7 with 231 goals, and Marian Gaborik at #10 with 228 goals. It’s worth noting that two Rangers top this list because it does address one of the Rangers biggest concerns over the past few seasons: primary scoring. Prior to Gaborik’s arrival, the Rangers didn’t have a bonafide goal scorer when Jaromir Jagr left town.
