Torts Turns To Advanced Statistics

Former Ranger coach John Tortorella has been a busy man while waiting for the next NHL gig to open up. In a recent interview on 620 WDAE in Tampa, FL, Torts was fairly candid on what he’s been up to since he was fired as coach in Vancouver. Somewhat surprisingly, Tortorella admitted that he and […]

Zuccarello Getting Hot At The Right Time

At some point, we all knew that Mats Zuccarello was going to figure it out. Coming off a 59 point campaign that led the Rangers a year ago and the contract issues that seem to follow him, Zuccarello’s shortcomings (no pun intended) with his production thus far were a little bit surprising given just about […]

Open Thread 2/9: James Dolan Criticizes A Fan, Nash

First reported by Deadspin yesterday, who received an email exchange with Rangers/Knicks owner James Dolan and an upset Knicks fan over their miserable 2014-15 season so far. You can read the emails here, but at the end of the exchange, Dolan told that fan to “start rooting for the Nets because the Knicks don’t want you.” […]

A Henrik Lundqvist Primer

Admission of guilt or admission of negligence? We all know how “hush-hush” the Rangers are in terms of disclosing anything. Injuries, contract signings. But when it came to their franchise goaltender in Henrik Lundqvist, he wasn’t having any of the non-transparency.
