Kreider’s Teammates Fascinated By His Play

We’re beginning to see the Chris Kreider that the Rangers envisioned when they drafted him with the 19th overall pick in 2009.  And we’re beginning to see why the Rangers were so adamant in labeling him as an “untouchable” during talks to acquire Rick Nash.

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 […]
