GERARD GALLANT ON BRADEN SCHNEIDER: 'HE WASN'T B----ING ABOUT NOT BEING UP HERE'

SEP 24, 2022  (16H45)      JON
Gerard Gallant had high praise for sophomore defenseman Braden Schneider yesterday. The 21-year old suited up for 43 games last season, managing 11 points and another three in the playoffs. He displayed confidence in his physical game, taking after now-captain Jacob Trouba, when he crushed Jesper Boqvist of the rival New Jersey Devils:


Midway through prospects' camp, Gallant expressed strong belief in Schneider, paying him a grand compliment while simultaneously sending a message to other rookies in the system:


The Rangers recently traded one rookie -- Nils Lundkvist -- who vocalized displeasure with his standing in the organization's pecking order. Another, Vitaly Kravtsov, has expressed similar feelings in the past and even requested a trade at one point. Still, Kravtsov was given a chance to skate with Artemi Panarin and Vincent Trocheck this week. Perhaps the two sides have a bright future together after all.

Gallant's old-school mentality has already molded the identity of his Rangers' group. They have transformed into a deadly group, both on the scoreboard and in the physical department, which is right up Gallant's alley.

With Gallant's praise of Schneider, clearly he was insinuating that other players -- Lundkvist and Kravtsov?-- should follow suit.
