The dynamic 38-year-old right wing is an upgrade over Ryan Callahan, the player shipped to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the blockbuster trade, and a major addition to a top-six forward group that now has enough speed and skill on the wings to match any team in the Eastern Conference.
St. Louis has 29 goals and 61 points in 62 games this season. He should slot into Callahan's former spot as the right wing on New York's second line with Carl Hagelin and Brad Richards, his close friend and former Stanley Cup-winning teammate in Tampa Bay.
The Rangers' first line already featured dynamic speed, skill and power with Derek Stepan playing between Rick Nash and Chris Kreider. St. Louis will give the Rangers' more scoring pop than Callahan did on the second line, and he should improve their power play, which is ranked 10th in the NHL at 20.3 percent.
