Peter Laviolette indicates that the Rangers will take on an aggressive approach in the coming season

“For me, it’s always been a little more of an aggressive approach. I think that you have to play good defense and you see that for teams that win Stanley Cups. Defense is always a priority, and you have to be able to play good in your defensive zone and [play] good defense. But for me, it’s about the attack. It’s about pressuring, it’s about puck pursuit, it’s about the battle level, the compete level, the grit.”

Peter Laviolette on his approach in the 2023-24 at the press conference in Tarrytown

Peter Laviolette, the successor of Gerard Gallant at NYR, indicated in his first press conference that he will take a more aggresive attacking approach in the upcoming season. The decorated 58-year-old from Massachusetts aims to reshape the Rangers as they look to end the trophy drought.

Peter Laviolette, one-time Stanley Cup winning coach, looks forward to reshaping the team but he added he required the equal tenacity from the guys. Needless to say, The Rangers lacked the passion and heart last season, a major reason of their first round exit in Stanley Cup Play-offs. His approach is aimed at more grinding and putting in hard work from Day One. The players have also asked for more challenging schedule to build up a drive and compete.
