A series of head-scratching decisions by GM Jeff Gorton, and Coach Alain Vigneault, are having a very negative effect on the New York Rangers. Some decisions have involved personnel, some involve scheduling , and some involve how the team is configured. In the preseason the team didn’t have any impressive games.
