Welcome to August and the literal dog days of the NHL offseason. The good news is we only have a few weeks left before training camps begin and all of us can once again salivate over the idea of watching hockey games. The bad news is it’s going to feel like an eternity before camp […]
As a Rangers fan, I know the ups and downs of what NHL free agency can bring. Especially under Glen Sather’s tenure. Need I remind you of some of the names our beloved GM has splurged money on in the past? I’ll spare you there *Scott Gomez* because, when you *Wade Redden* stop and actually […]
We all know how well players like Ryan McDonagh, Martin St. Louis, the de facto first line of Mats Zuccarello, Benoit Pouliot and Derick Brassard have played throughout the postseason. Some have elevated their game; others have just played consistent to get the Rangers here. Some (namely Rick Nash) have played well, but have yet […]

- If you’re catching up, Michel Therrien told the media today he was upset the Rangers broke a ‘gentleman’s agreement‘ between the teams not to watch practices. Not only does this seem to be a gamesmanship tactic by Therrien, but his own GM Marc Bergevin denies the agreement ever being communicated.
- No, this is not an attempt to promote myself in my own blog post on the site I write for. Yes, this video is awesome, especially the part where Glen Sather just randomly shows up.
- Nice try, Michel.
309 career regular season. A gold medal for Sweden in the 2006 Winter Olympic games and silver medal this past February. A Vezina winner in 2011-12 and four-time finalist. Henrik Lundqvist has accomplished a tremendous amount in his nine-year career and shows no signs of halting his meteoric rise to the top of every goaltending […]

I couldn’t agree more. Slaying the Penguins would not only be his most impressive playoff accomplish to date, but perhaps elevate his confidence to that next level needed in the postseason. We’ll soon find out.
January 4, 2014 was an interesting day. The Rangers sent a seventh-round pick to the Kings for sparsely used forward Dan Carcillo because the team recognized at the time a need for more of ‘grit’ and ‘toughness’ — two overly valued hockey player traits. It certainly was an interesting move at the time around the […]
It’s always a fiery debate amongst New York Rangers fans and even bloggers/beat writers/social media presences etc.: standing up for teammates when they’re the target of a questionable play. The Alex Burrows/Ryan McDonagh incident has seen its fair share of debate since Tuesday night. Now you add ex-NHL referee Paul Stewart into the mix. He […]
If the title of this article is a bit jarring to you, then read the following tweet provided by Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun who recently spoke to Alex Burrows about the incident from Rangers/Canucks game Tuesday night: Listen, I’m not a fan of Burrows or his hit on McDonagh from that game. I […]
UPDATED 7:04 pm: The Rangers confirm Kreider is out for tomorrow’s game vs. Flyers, do not release any more info: – Not looking good for Chris Kreider… UPDATE 7:00 pm: Curiously, the original tweet by Bob McKenzie was deleted, however, the story TSN ran is still up on the site. Rick Carpinello of Rangers Report […]
How many different times this year have we heard Rangers GM Glen Sather was retiring after the season? After his prostate cancer surgery back in March of 2013, many speculated that Sather’s time as President and GM was drawing to an end. In June, an ESPN Boston report had Sather considering stepping down over the […]
I know it’s not Rangers related, but this may be goal of the year worthy and deserves everyone’s time.
If we want to spin it NYR-centric, Glen Sather did have conversations with Edmonton at the trade deadline about acquiring Hemsky. Don’t forget: it’s not a hockey year if a Hemsky for Del Zotto trade isn’t rumored.
Here’s a thought: Ottawa paid a 2015 3rd-round draft pick and a 2014 5th-rounder to get Hemsky. Would you have given Edmonton that to bring Alex Hemsky to NYR? Comment below!
Quick! Think of one of the more polarizing Rangers’ players of the past few seasons? It’s a safe bet the name Michael Del Zotto comes up. Billed with promise, MDZ never quite panned out after his impressive ’09-10 rookie season and 41-point campaign back in ’11-12. The Rangers finally cut bait with the young defenseman in […]
