The New York Rangers is one of two NHL teams in New York. They were one of the Original Six, and over the years they have been one of the most consistent teams and regularly make the playoffs. They’ve been on a downturn the last couple of seasons and are likely to miss the playoffs for the second straight year.
While online sports betting is not yet legal, we expect it to be legal by 2020. This means that New York Rangers betting will be available for the regular season as well as action for all teams in the NHL. Learn more about this franchise, whether the experts give the New York Rangers odds to make the playoffs anytime soon, and a bit about New York Rangers betting at NY online sportsbooks.
Original Six Team With Consistent Playoff Runs
The New York Rangers were founded in 1926 and were one of the Original Six teams of the National Hockey League. Over the years, the team has won four Stanley Cup titles with the last coming in 1994. They are one of the most famous teams in hockey, playing at Madison Square Garden and enjoying a tremendous following across the country.
The team has enjoyed numerous playoff runs over the years, led by iconic players such as Mark Messier, Mike Richter, Rod Gilbert, and Brian Leetch. It’s odd to see the Rangers miss the playoffs, but that’s precisely what they did in 2018, and it looks like they will miss the playoffs again in 2019.
Outlook for 2020 and Beyond
The New York Rangers are in a transitional phase, and with team president Glen Sather stepping down, it is hard to tell what the future brings for the team. The Rangers look to be around fifth or sixth in the draft lottery, so they are in line to get a nice pick in the draft.
With many spots on the roster likely up for grabs, it is likely that this team will struggle for at least a couple more years. While we’d like to give the New York Rangers odds for a successful campaign in 2020, it is likely they will miss the playoffs again next year, and the team is looking at two to three years before another playoff run can be expected.
