Highly likely BU's David Quinn will be Rangers next head coach

The Rangers are in a transition period, turning the page on a close-but-no-cigar era — which included a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2014 and two other conference final appearances — by trying to reshape its roster. After years of being buyers at the trade deadline, Rangers brass made the decision to cash in on assets at this season’s deadline after witnessing its team scuffle for more than a month, publicly declaring on Feb. 8 its intent to rebuild. Out went the likes of captain Ryan McDonagh, J.T. Miller, Rick Nash and Michael Grabner, and in came prospects Libor Hajek, Brett Howden, Ryan Lindgren and Yegor Rykov, as well as two late first-round picks in next month’s draft, plus a second-rounder and third-rounder.
