Read: Dave Maloney On The Rangers and Their Window

Dave Maloney was a guest on Sportsnet’s Hockey Central recently and was asked by the hosts, Darren Millard, Nick Kypreos and Doud MacLean about where he would place the Rangers in terms of the top tier of the league.

“I do think that you do need to put them in the mix of teams that you need to keep an eye on. I think the core of their team is in a good wheelhouse part of their career, they are solid in goal and on the blue line. Ryan McDonagh has become a force to be reckoned with. I think that if you need to build from the goal out to be a contender than this Rangers team is certainly in the mix of things.”

Maloney then brought up the Rangers window to win with this group and said that they probably have 2-3 years and that they really need to take advantage of Brad Richards while he is still in his prime.
