What Rangers RFAs Are Looking For

With the Rangers RFAs’ arbitration hearings less than a week away, negotiations continue to be on-going. After signing Matthew Lombardi to a $800,000 per year contract yesterday, the Rangers are left with a little over $13 million to re-sign Chris Kreider, Mats Zuccarello, Derrick Brassard and John Moore. Unfortunately, according to Larry Brooks at the […]

Summer 2014 New York Rangers’ Prospect Rankings: 36-25

I published my version of the New York Rangers’ prospect rankings in early January, which you can view here. A lot has changed since then. The prospects have since played for four-to-six months, depending on their schedule, and thus all have developed (or failed to) in different ways over that time. Aside from that, the Rangers […]

JT Miller Will Get Huge Chance This Season

With the Rangers cap situation less than ideal, it’s not very likely that they’ll have the ability to replace both Brad Richards and Beniot Pouliot through free agency or a trade. While Glen Sather will most assuredly find a way to acquire a substitute for one of the two, it’s looking more and more likely […]

Brooks: Rick Nash Is Not Being Traded

With the free agency cupboard becoming more and more bare by the day, conventional thinking is that if Glen Sather is going to upgrade the Rangers it’s going to be via a trade. And the one Rangers player who continues to be mentioned among Blueshirt Nation as possible trade bait is Rick Nash. I can’t […]

The Clear-Cut Case of Tanner Glass; He’s Not Good At Hockey

Earlier today Kevin wrote a piece in which he broke down what he called the “curious case” of Tanner Glass. Largely, I understand what he was trying to do. Just as in my “Retain or Release” articles, Kevin wanted to present the best arguments he could to, while highlighting some issues, bring hope for success […]

The Curious Case of Tanner Glass

I’ve got to be honest, when the Rangers signed Tanner Glass I didn’t know too much about the guy. I loved the idea of bringing in some sandpaper, especially after trading away Derek Dorsett along with Dan Carcillo’s future with the Blueshirts cloudy at best. However, three years at $1.45 million per seemed excessive for […]

Video: The Mac Truck

It’s only been a month since the Rangers crushing Game 5 loss to the Kings in the Stanley Cup Final and I’m already jonesing for some hockey. This awesome Ryan McDonagh highlight video from @JCGraphicDesign definitely helps…

…McDonagh only being paid $4.7 million per year for the next five years is an absolute coup by Sather. Not a better bargain in all of the NHL.

Boyle’s Age Won’t Be A Factor

One of the complaints from Rangers fans after the signing of 37-year old (will be 38 on July 12th) Dan Boyle was how he fit the mold of a typical over-the-hill, fading superstar signing Glen Sather has become notorious for during his tenure as Rangers GM. And those complaints seem justified when looking at Boyle’s […]

Will John Moore Follow in Stepan’s Footsteps & Holdout?

Last offseason, Derek Stepan entered the summer as a restricted free agent without arbitration rights. Unfortunately, he ended the summer holding out for 16 days of training camp before finally signing a two-year bridge deal for $6.15 million. While three of the Rangers four RFAs filed for salary arbitration this past weekend, all but assuring […]

The Most Perfect Picture in the World

Between all the booze I’ve been drinking this weekend and the lack of Rangers news, I’ve really got nothing for you today, so I figured I’d leave you with literally one of the most perfect pictures I’ve ever seen of Henrik Lundqvist this 4th of July weekend…

…seriously, what else could you ask for other than a half naked waitress serving him, but that’s just getting picky. Even the knife in the butter is placed perfectly. I mean c’mon.

Meanwhile, here’s my weekend filled with keg cups, chips and lots of sausage… (more…)
