The Rangers season is less than a week away. A new coach, new management, new players and a renewed hope they can improve and become a playoff team in 2021-2022. Will they be better? We have a full in-depth season preview on the return of your favorite Rangers podcast “Up In The Blue Seats” with Ron Duguay and Mollie Walker.
The Post’s Larry Brooks joins the show to give his thoughts on the season and one of those new Rangers — Barclay Goodrow –stops by.
Up In The Blue Seats Podcast with Ron, Mollie & Jake:
- BACK IN BUSINESS: Ron has a renewed energy with hockey back. He got some time in recently on the ice and feels great out there. He also makes sure we know that he is indeed single and available.
- RANGERS SEASON: New vibes in the air with head coach Gerard Gallant. He lets the team play more freely. This can be a big season for the Rangers, but a lot will rely on the goaltending they get from Igor Shesterkin.
- PREDICTIONS: Mollie and Ron believe the Rangers can get in as a wild card team. They both like the Avalanche as the favorite to win the Stanley Cup.
- NAMATH/STUDIO 54: We play a clip from Joe Namath on the “Gang’s All Here” podcast with me and Brian Costello on him talking about Ron and Studio 54.
