Key Players’ Struggles Are Hurting the Rangers

The staple of the Rangers for them to be a successful and dangerous team starts from the inside the net with Henrik Lundqvist, out to the defense with newly minted captain Ryan McDonagh. Add some balanced scoring throughout the lineup and you have a Cup contender like we saw during last year’s Cinderella run. What we’ve […]

Does Anyone Else Miss John Tortorella?

The man. The myth. The eternally angry legend. Alain Vigneault has been New York Rangers coach for a season plus and has done a tremendous job. He’s changed the way the team plays, maintained an even-keeled persona which can be seen on the ice and, in his first season, led New York to its first […]

The Rebirth of Rick Nash

This is the Rick Nash that Glen Sather thought he was acquiring from the Columbus Blue Jackets back in 2012. We’re 16 games into the 2014-15 season, and the former 2002 No. 1 overall pick is not only in a tie for the league lead in goals with 12, not only on pace to shatter […]

Hey, It’s Not ALL Bad With the Rangers

With the Rangers coming off another embarrassing effort on MSG Ice, the team is 1-3 and searching for answers. And if you browse NYR twitter, you’d think the sky is falling. Perhaps they have a case of Chicken Little? Guess what? It ain’t all bad. Aside from the fact the Blueshirts got off to a […]

Rangers ‘Pretty Sure’ Moore Will Sign Before Camp Opens

The Rangers had quite the number of free agents to contend with this offseason after a scintillating run to their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since 1994. New York has dealt with all but one: John Moore. The 23-year-old defenseman is still without a contract, but the Blueshirts don’t seem to be worried as Assistant GM […]

Agent: ‘All Quiet’ on Staal Extension Talks

Buried within a great piece yesterday on Rangers legend Brian Leetch discussing his time as Rangers captain and offering his thoughts on why Ryan McDonagh makes sense as the next potential man to where the ‘C’ on a Broadway Blueshirt, Katie Strang of ESPN offered up a nugget regarding the status of contract talks between defenseman […]

Rangers, Kristo Officially Agree to Terms on New Deal

If you’ll recall, reports came out on July 11 that Kristo had accepted the team’s qualifying offer. Two days ago, CapGeek had the contract details on their site.

As Adam alluded to earlier today in his post, Kristo’s future with the Rangers is shrouded in some doubt with the signing of Kevin Hayes yesterday and the glut of speedy, small forwards already in the organization. He could be a candidate to be shipped out.

Rangers Fans, Take a Chill Pill and Relax

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 […]

Biggest Rangers Standouts During the Playoffs

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 […]

WATCH: Michel Therrien Upset as Rangers Coaches Watch MTL Practice

**WARNING NSFW LANGUAGE**

– 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.

Can Lundqvist Conquer His Greatest Challenge?

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 […]
