Grading Artemiy Panarin might be the easiest report card I’ve ever written on this site. I don’t think there’s any question or debate that Panarin is the best Rangers forward by a country mile. So, with the exception of maybe a few stone throwers, I think for today’s post we can also widen the aperture and talk about Panarin’s legacy on Broadway, what his future role is with the team, in addition to the usual report card metrics.
First, let’s start with the obvious. Panarin in my mind is the best Rangers forward since Jaromir Jagr donned the Broadway blue.
