Four Thoughts: 6/23

1. In case you missed it late last night, Keith Yandle signed a 7 year contract with the Panthers worth $6.35 million per and a full NMC over the first six years of the contract. You can always have the argument that the lack of a Florida state tax probably keeps the top number down […]

Yandle Departs

Well, it’s happening. Late yesterday afternoon, the Rangers traded the rights of Keith Yandle to Florida, for a 2016 6th round pick and a 2017 4th round pick if Yandle signs with the Panthers. That’s not a horrible return for Yandle’s rights, especially since it was somewhat questionable whether the Rangers could even do it at […]

Girardi Protected In Expansion Draft

You’re going to hear a lot about the upcoming expansion draft next year as GM’s across the league begin jockeying for position as the free agent market opens for business exactly two weeks from today. The Rangers are in their own unique position with a number of RFA’s that have to be dealt with and […]

NYR Need To Commit To Youth

We’ve all heard the term that professional sports are “copy-cat” leagues. The successes of LA and Chicago in the last 7 seasons have given rise to the current meta-game of the NHL which is puck possession, defense-thru-offense hockey. But what the Penguins are doing right now, one win away from a Stanley Cup, is with […]

Four Thoughts: 6/1

1A. Some thoughts on the Cup Final… After the Penguins surprisingly needed 7 games to get past Tampa, I wouldn’t have been surprised if they had a bit of a letdown in Game 1 on Monday night. Instead, after a small feeling out process to start, they dropped two goals on San Jose in very short […]

World Cup Of Hockey Rosters Released

Call it John Tortorella’s ‘Dream Team’. Although no current Rangers were added to any of the teams participating in the World Cup of Hockey tournament later on this summer, a couple former Rangers were unexpectedly added to Team USA when the teams were announced Friday evening. Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky were among 7 final […]

Rangers Cloudy Future Even More Uncertain

By now, you may have read Larry Brooks’ column from late Tuesday night, which offered a wealth of potential new information on the Rangers’ plans going into this offseason. There’s a ton to go over so we’ll break this down bit-by-bit. According to Brooks, the Rangers have no intention of buying out Dan Girardi, citing […]

Four Thoughts: 5/24

1. Back from week long vacation. Let’s catch up. Derick Brassard led Team Canada in scoring with 11 points in 10 game at Worlds as the Canadians won their second gold medal in as many years. I know players’ performances at Worlds don’t mean a great deal, but it got me thinking about something else […]

Four Thoughts: 5/12

1. So, is there anyone left that can stop the Penguins? It probably won’t be Tampa in the conference finals even though it sounds like they’re getting Anton Stralman soon, possibly for Game 1 tomorrow night. Even if Stamkos were to come back as well, I still don’t think the Lightning would have enough to get by […]

It’s Time To Talk Hockey Analytics On This Blog

There isn’t too many subjects that we don’t cover on the New York Rangers Blog; the draft, free agency, trades and the like. But in the last year and a half I’ve spent as circus-master, there’s been one touchy subject that I have avoided intentionally. Until now. I won’t pretend to know every detail, every […]

AV Receives Vote Of Confidence

Yesterday in a transcribed interview with lapresse.ca, Alain Vigneault said that he wasn’t afraid over losing his job given the Rangers performance and quick out in the playoffs. Especially with the amount of high profile firings, that have included the last two Jack Adams award winners over the last two seasons, there were some that stated that AV, […]

Is Stamkos An Option For The Rangers?

You guys remember the Ryan Callahan dilemma right? The one where the former Ranger captain during the ’14 season was looking for a new contract upwards of 7 million annually, forced the Rangers hand via trade after NTC/NMC clauses became too much of an issue in negotiations and wound up in Tampa Bay on a […]
