The Rangers are also out of playoff position after Thanksgiving. Clearly they need to shake things up and they can't wait for the trade deadline to do that. Given the lack of cap space to make a move now that means either a trade of somebody who also has a big cap hit to make room or a shake-up in the lineup to try to get more out of what is already here or a change in the coaching staff because right now GG is not getting it done with the talent he has on hand. If GG is staying and no big trade is in the offing he really should do a top to bottom shake-up because what worked last year is not working this year. Something like: Panarin - Zibanejad - Lafreniere Kreider - Trocheck - Kakko Vesey - Chytil - Gauthier Blais - Carpenter - Goodrow Kravtsov is another piece if he ever gets healthy Miller - Fox Lindgren - Trouba Hajek - Schneider Yeah it's a total shakeup but the Rangers haven't looked good 5v5 in either end of the ice.
