#15 Artemi Panarin
Ok before you call me crazy for putting Panarin on this list take these facts into consideration. Artemi Panarin has put up amazing numbers for the Rangers in the 2019-20 NHL season after spending his first 4 seasons with Chicago and Columbus and also winning the Calder he signed a massive contract with New York on July 1st 2019. In his first season with the Rangers as of the all star break he has put up 68 points in 47 games.
#14 Derick Brassard
Traded to New York on April 3rd 2013 Derick Brassard played 4 seasons in New York and was a key piece for them in that span. Brassard posted 174 points in 254 games with the team. Brassard was traded to Ottawa for Mika Zibanejad which was a trade the Rangers won by far. After playing for Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Florida and Colorado, Brassard plays for the Islanders at the time of this article.
#13 Kevin Hayes
Kevin Hayes was signed as a free agent in 2014 after playing at the college level for 4 seasons. Hayes played 5 seasons in New York and posted 216 points in 361 games. After being in trade rumors for over a year Hayes was traded to Winnipeg during the 2019 Trade Deadline.
#12 Mika Zibanejad
As you read earlier, Mika Zibanejad was a part of the Derick Brassard trade in 2016. Zibanejad has been the Rangers best center by far. Zibanejad has posted 197 points in 245 games so far in his hopefully long career in New York. He is the main candidate for team captaincy.
#11 Martin St Louis
The Hall of Fame winger wanted to go to a contender for the Stanley Cup not the draft lottery contenders in Tampa Bay. Martin St Louis only wanted to go to the Rangers and reunite with his former Stanley cup winning teammate in 2004 Brad Richards. St Louis posted 60 points in 93 games in his 2 season tenure with the team. The Rangers came up just short in both seasons and St Louis retired following the 2014-15 season.
