Rangers Potential Opening Night Forward Lines

Now that the forward positions have been pretty much filled out, the next question is what are the lines going to look like. Will the Kreider-Stepan-Nash line remain intact? Is Stempniak automatically going to be placed with Brassard and Zuccarello? Is JT Miller the best option for the third line center position? Obviously there’s going […]

Rangers Re-Sign Bourque

Yesterday, the Rangers announced that they have re-signed former 2009 third round pick Ryan Bourque. After combining for just 14g, 15a his first two injury plagued seasons in Hartford, Bourque tallied 21g, 16a in 74 games last season. No terms were released. …Bourque is definitely overlooked when it comes to fourth line options for the […]

Here’s A Really Stupid Ron Duguay ‘Story’ From The New York Post

As I alluded to yesterday, early August is the hockey journalism equivalent of being stranded on a deserted island with no water, no shelter, and Janice from “FRIENDS” as your only companion. It’s boring. It’s torturous. There’s practically nothing going on of note. Thus, writers will reach for stories that probably wouldn’t make the cut […]

Chris Kreider Ice Bucket

Let’s Watch Chris Kreider Get Drenched With A Bucket Of Ice

The NHL offseason means a bunch of bored professional players do absurd and goofy things and a bunch of bored hockey writer post about them. Chris Kreider was summoned to complete something called the “Ice Bucket Challenge” in which he gets drenched with stupidly cold water and ice. Somehow, this is supposed to raise awareness […]

Prospect Update: Anthony Duclair Scores Ridiculous Goal For Canada

It’s only early August, but signs of the upcoming hockey season’s arrival already exist. Countries are holding U20 summer camps in order to get in some early evaluations of players who could potentially suit up at the World Junior Championships in December, and the Rangers own the rights to a handful of prospects who have […]

Video: Thank You Brian Boyle

I’ve always been a fierce defender of Brian Boyle, so it was obviously tough to see him sign elsewhere this offseason. The great AJ Castiglia gives him a proper farewell with this video tribute…

…his absence will be must noticeable on the penalty kill and in the defensive end. Especially when the Rangers are likely going to count on Lombardi and Glass to fill his role, which in my opinion seems like a downgrade.

If you’re a Rangers fan who hated Michael Del Zotto, you’re REALLY going to hate him now as the Philadelphia Flyers announced they have signed the former Blueshirt defenseman to a one-year deal.

On Saturday, James posted about the possibility of Darryl Williams reuniting with Alain Vigneault on the Rangers coaching staff. Today, the Rangers made it official by announcing Williams will replace the recently departed Dan Lacroix as the team’s assistant coach. Williams spent the last six seasons as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks. Prior […]

Video: Shirtless Lundqvist; Zuccarello Happy To Sign New Contract

Still not much real hockey related news to report in Rangersland, so I figured I’d make my female readers, and some male (not that there’s anything wrong with it), happy with this Henrik Lundqvist shirtless commercial (H/T The Henrik Lundqvist Blog)… …swooooooooooooooooooooon!!!!!!! Meanwhile, Mats Zuccarello had a video message for Rangers fans…. Post by Mats […]

Rangers Haven’t Spoken to Staal About Extension

Now that the Rangers have avoided arbitration with their big three restricted free agents and John Moore is likely to be back in the fold sooner rather than later, it’s time to focus on next year’s unrestricted free agents, namely Marc Staal. Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that up until this point […]

Leetch Not Returning To NHL Department of Player Safety

Leetch joined the department last season and held the title of Manager of Player Safety. …hmmmmmm, I wonder if this has anything to do with the Blueshirts recent assistant coach vacancy. …God knows they could use his help on the power play. Newest Ranger Dan Boyle, who was acquired to bolster the extra man units, recently […]
