Read: Where The Rangers Rank In Terms Of Total Miles Traveled

At On The Forecheck, Dirk Hoag compiled his annual list of how many miles each team will travel during the regular season.

The Rangers will travel the fewest miles in the NHL at 29,839. The Islanders will travel the second fewest at 29,933.

In 11-12 the Rangers traveled 36,825 and in 10-11 they traveled 29,355. John Tortorella and the Canucks will travel over 48,000 miles.

Hoag also tracks back-to-back sequences for teams and the Rangers are tied for second, with 13, for the fewest back-to-backs in the Eastern Conference.

The Devils, by comparison, have 22 back-to-backs. The Rangers had 11 in 11-12 and 18 in 10-11.

@mattroche50 Definitely in the top 5. I think they have a better shot than I had originally anticipated.

@DVbballMom ND's never been a serious option for top 10 recruits. Really hope I'm wrong this time. Stephen seems like perfect fit with ND.

@DVbballMom Stephen strikes me as a young man who values education. Could leave after 1 or stay longer. Think that's the outlook Brey wants.

@NDHoopsRecruits@DVbballMomHe's not going to Notre Dame.  It's probably gonna be UNLV, UK, UCLA, Arizona or possibly Oregon. The smart money right now is on UNLV (or at least the West Coast).  Education is important but I think family is #1 in this recruitment.

I watch him play all the time and he's certainly good but he's not dominant.  I seriously he doubt that he's one and done.  Young bigs develop slowly and he has holes in his game so I think he's a 2-3 year guy.   I watched 2015 PF Ivan Rabb absolutely destroy him a couple of weeks ago.  If you ask me, he's actually the second best big man on his team (Chase Jeter).
