Alexis Lavrinier: The future Chris Kreider

Alexis Lafrenière was fortunate to have been drafted first overall by a team already full of talent. The problem is that he doesn’t get as much playing time as he would if he was playing somewhere else. His development is slower than expected, but it’s only a matter of time before he becomes a mainstay for the New York Rangers, a kind of Chris Kreider.

This is what podcast guest Alexander Pratt thinks exit area From La Presse on Monday. It’s a potential solution if we rely on Lavrinier’s work since the start of qualifying.

Pratt believes that Lavrinière does not currently have the right role to become a star player with New York.

“He’s behind Panarin and Kreider and these two guys have four more years of contract with Panarin and five years for Kreider. You know, at some point, you’re going to have to switch sides. You can’t have three players playing on the same side or three players in (formation). ) stuck like this. – Alexander Pratt on the podcast exit area from the press

The solution to making it develop faster: give it more playing time.

“In the last match, he still played minutes less than Kotkaniemi, who is still not a player Superstar Quite frankly. He was fortunate to fall with Rangers in the draft, who already had a good squad, but if this guy plays for a lower-ranked team, he’ll already be star In the National League, he would have played on the first line. – Alexander Pratt in the podcast exit area from the press

Pratt explains that Lavrinier is playing very well at the moment, so he’s making his third-team mates look even better. Yes, he doesn’t blow nets against hurricanes, but he plays with a heart and speeds all over the rink. His comrades take advantage of this and score points.

All podcast guests exit area of La Presse agreed; Alexis Lafrenière will become a mainstay for the Rangers in the coming years. All it lacks are opportunities and time to grow.

The nicknamed Lavey has done so well since the end of the season that he earned the praise of his coach Gerard Gallant, who didn’t finish anything moving as explained by Jean-Francois Chaumont of the Journal de Montreal.

“Laugh [Lafrenière] Gallant noted he’s been doing well since January or February. It reached another level. Lavi became a man. It also gets good results. He feels good with the way he plays and I can trust him. I also love his physical involvement. He has a very competitive spirit. Makes the right decisions with the puck. It’s a good sign for a young player. – Gerard Gallant on Alexis Lavrinier, after the sixth match between Rangers and Hurricanes.

So yes, Lavrinier isn’t always on the scoresheet after matches, but his involvement is very present and pleasantly surprises the Rangers members.

He and his buddies need to keep the machine running in Game 7 against the hurricanes on Monday night. If the Rangers win Monday night, it would be their first appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals since 2015, when they lost in seven games to Lightning.
