- Anthony Duclair certainly showed why there is hype around him. He may be one of those guys who is ready to play in the AHL but can't because the rules state he has another year to play in junior. I don't think he should/will make the Rangers but this was a really good first impression. I don't think there is enough ice time for him with the Rangers and the best situation would be for him to go to the AHL but instead he will get another year to dominate in the QMJHL, hopefully make Team Canada for the World Juniors and then play for the memorial cup.
- JT Miller was good again and has probably tightened his grip on locking up a roster spot and likely filling in for Derek Stepan while he was out. The big game on faceoffs is very encouraging and nice to see.
- I liked what Rick Nash showed tonight. He had good legs, went to the net, was engaged and looked a lot like the player the Rangers need him to be.
- One thing that may work in Oscar Lindberg's favor, towards getting a spot on the roster, is his ability on the PK, especially with Derek Stepan out.
