Vesey was originally...

Can Chris Kreider be a Consistent Force for the New York Rangers?

This fall, New York Rangers’ left wing Chris Kreider will certainly have high expectations placed on him. But this is nothing new for the 25-year-old Massachusetts native. Last season, Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault stated that Kreider should be a 30 goal scorer. Well, in 2015-16 Kreider’s 21 goal total was disappointing, but entering the 2016-17 season, the Rangers...
