With the season for the National Hockey League having concluded several months ago, the offseason has begun. While during this time, matches do not occur between the professional NHL teams, it is a time when a lot of activity occurs that will affect the next season. Fans spend a lot of time monitoring these movements as they anticipate the start of the new season in the fall. New York Rangers fans are hoping the offseason changes will boost their team’s capabilities which can make them serious contenders to win the Stanley Cup in 2014.

These changes that are occurring within the New York Rangers are also important for those making sports bets on the team. As there are no current games which can be wagered on, the sportsbooks are taking futures bets on the New York Rangers. These kinds of bets make prediction of future events.
