With the Jack Eichel trade situation more or less on hold, the Rangers appear to be entering the season with the current lineup. It is most likely a playoff lineup, but it highly dependent on Alexis Lafreniere and Kaapo Kakko taking their appropriate next steps. It is also dependent on Gerard Gallant meeting expectations with a more aggressive style of play that has full team buy in. Part of that is everyone knowing what their job is on the ice, specifically what the Rangers forward roles will be.
