Open Thread 12/11- Is JT Miller Being Showcased?

It has been quite the bumpy ride  for the Rangers first round pick in 2011. Constantly shuttled between New York and Hartford as a mere injury call-up and when he was playing for the Rangers, JT Miller was little more than a 4th liner stop gap getting 10 minutes a night. Not exactly what you […]


Open Thread 12/10- Board of Governors Meeting Wrap-Up, Kreider Skating

Quite a number of tidbits that came out of the final day of the BOG meetings. Arguably the biggest one was the NHL cementing its interest in a Las Vegas expansion franchise by giving the potential ownership group the green light to begin a “season ticket drive” to test the market and gauge interest from the […]

NHL: New York Rangers at Detroit Red Wings

Rangers 2, Detroit 3

The New York Rangers (11-10-4) fell to the Detroit Red Wings (16-6-5) by a score of 3-2. For a box score, click here. That one was about as maddening and frustrating of a loss as they come. Two goal lead after one, seemingly in control of the game. That’s when it all went terribly wrong.  Kevin […]

Open Thread 12/5: Zuccarello on NYR Struggles, Contract

Mats Zuccarello, in a loosely translated piece with Nettavisen, thinks he knows what is behind some of the Rangers issues that plagued the team early in the season. “After the Stanley Cup and all the big one experienced, so you come back and still a little disappointed.You come from the big circus and then it’s […]


Open Thread 12/3: News Around the NHL

- Yesterday, the NHL handed down a $100,000 fine to the LA Kings for allowing the suspended Slava Voynov to participate in an optional practice before their game vs. the Bruins last night. Voynov, who was charged with felony domestic violence and is possibly facing deportation, was suspended by the league in October. The NHL […]


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 […]

The Russians have also named Ranger draft picks Pavel Buchnevich (2013-3rd) and Igor Shesterkin (2014-4th) to their preliminary roster […]

AV: NYR Contemplating Duclair’s WJC Status

Yesterday, Team Canada released its tryout roster for the World Junior Championships coincidentally on the same day that Anthony Duclair was a healthy scratch for the 6th game this season. Unlike if the Rangers were to send Duclair back to the Quebec Remparts, the Rangers can allow Duclair to play for his country during the […]
