Vincent Trochek on Broadway Pick and Ready Sammy Place and more


The New York Rangers had a very simple plan in the post-season: Sign a second-line position and get an affordable backup goalkeeper. They took care of their main goals once the free agency opened on July 13th with the signings of Vincent Trochek and Yaroslav Halack.

Trochek, 29, scored 21 goals and 51 points last season. He’s a two-way player built for playoff success. The center is expected to replace Ryan Strom in the second line, but his signature came at a heavy cost.

Blueshirts signed him to a 7-year contract with AAV worth $5.625 million and a no-trade clause for the first three seasons of the contract. It is essential with a small space for the team that his tenure in New York be successful in those first few years.

“It’s an important part of any hockey team and it’s a hole we wanted to tackle,” GM Chris Drury said of the center position. “[Trocheck] He’s a really good player, doing a lot of different things. We are excited to have him.”

After signing with Rangers, Troshik said it was his first destination. He recently appeared on the NHL Network and expanded on his causes.

“Obviously New York has a great team with a lot of young talent,” he began. “Playing against them in the playoffs, they were a tough team to play against with great firepower.”

The Rangers took the second round of the game against the Carolina Hurricanes in 7 games, having come back from a 3-2 deficit.

“The chance of winning was one of the main factors and Galant’s presence was another,” Troschek continued. “Having a chance to go to New York City and win the Stanley Cup is a huge thing. It’s clearly something I haven’t done yet in my career and would like to do.”

Gerard Galant coached Trocheck for several seasons in Florida from 2014 to 2016.

Sami Bliss “Ready to Go” for Rangers

It was heart-wrenching to watch Sammy Place writing in agony after his relegation as the injury season ended in November. He and pk Subban the defender of demons went to the corner to chase the loose puck and it seemed that the defenseman’s sled was out for a blaze trip. The fall caused a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament, which required surgery.

In the end, 4 assists in 14 games is what Rangers had to show in front of trading crowd favorite Pavel Bukhnevich before the start of the 2021-22 season. The second-round pick also obtained in the deal went to the Winnipeg Jets to complete terms for Andrew Copp.

Now fully recovered, Bliss spoke with the New York Post to say, “I’ll be ready to go.”

The 26-year-old showed in his short stint last year that he has some excellent passing ability. Although Gallant will be looking more for his punching technique to help the team.

Blais signed a one-year deal in June, and the Rangers should see what they have in him before either trading him on deadline or possibly watching him march into the UFA Championship next summer.

“I wanted to prove to everyone that they made a good trading choice for me, and it was really hard to walk away from the team,” Bliss said. “I didn’t get as close to the players as I wanted so it was kind of hard to be away from the game. But I’m doing really well now. I’m just looking forward to getting back on the ice with the guys in training camp.”

The only thing that will be very useful for Bliss and the team is his ability to play on the right or left wing. It will definitely help his cause to stay sixth in the Rangers. I’m currently showing him as the fourth left winger next season.
