Brassard Lobbied For Hagelin On His Line

With everything Alain Vigneault touched turning to gold last season, it’s tough to criticize any of his decisions these days. However, after seeing his likely opening night forward lines this week I have to question the thought process behind removing Chris Kreider from the Derick Brassard/Mats Zuccarello line which seemed to display some chemistry this preseason. Kreider-St. […]


It’s Finally Here!!!!!

So this was pretty much what I did in my bedroom immediately after waking up this morning and remembering it’s opening night… The Rangers players are sort of excited as well… Alain Vigneault… “I feel real good about this team. We are a good team, and we understand that if you are to be successful in […]


Hayes Out of Non-Contact Jersey, Skating as an Extra

As Kevin Hayes predicted, he remained the same as yesterday… Kreider-St. Louis-Nash Hagelin-Brassard-Zuccarello Duclair-Miller-Stempniak Glass-D. Moore-Fast …it looks like Hayes is going to start the season in the press box and likely won’t see the ice unless someone struggles. And even then, AV would have to select him over the experience Malone brings to the […]

McDonagh Named 27th Captain in Rangers History

There was no fan fare. No big press conference. No bells and whistles. And I’m sure that’s exactly how Ryan McDonagh wanted it as he was quietly named the 27th captain in New York Rangers history during a private team dinner last night. If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know that I […]

Rangers Roster Takes Shape As Mueller Waived, Stepan to LTIR

Lots of transactions this morning as the Rangers whittled their roster down to 23 players. First to the obvious… …no surprises here as none of these players did enough to earn a spot on the opening night roster. Having said that, don’t be surprised if we see one or two of these guys in a […]

Clarifying Duclair’s Roster Situation

Last week, I attempted to explain Anthony Duclair’s convoluted contract situation and how it affects the Rangers roster. Almost all of what I stated was correct, however, I made one glaring error (there’s a first time for everything ;)) that has led to some confusion and misinformation which I need to clarify regarding the Rangers 50 […]

Bourques & Tarnasky Clear Waivers Meaning Roster Move Still Needed To Keep Duclair

Some bitter sweet news off the ice yesterday as Ryan & Chris Bourque as well as Nick Tarnasky all cleared waivers paving the way for their return to Hartford. While it’s nice that all three will remain within the organization, especially R. Bourque, who I’m not officially ready to give up on yet, unfortunately, it also […]

Montreal Canadiens v New York Rangers - Game Four

Cap, Stepan Injury May Force St. Louis Move To Center

Last week, when it was announced that Derek Stepan would miss the next 4-6 weeks with a fractured fibula, Martin St. Louis texted Alain Vigneault that he’d be available to fill-in at center. While it was an admirable offer by the 39-year old winger, no one really expected the Rangers head coach to take him up […]
