After the Matthew Lombardi and Lee Stempniak signings, Rangers fans hailed them as “no risk” acquisitions because both salaries fall below the $925,000 mark and, according to the new CBA, can be buried in AHL without counting against the big club’s cap if each player fails to impress in camp. I’m not so sure I […]
Another year, another anticipated contract battle as Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Marc Staal’s contract extension negotiations with the Rangers could start at six-year, $5.5 million per year as he could easily obtain that number on the open market next summer. In 460 career games, Staal has 27g, 84a. Last season he […]
You figured it was only a matter of time before the Rangers grabbed a veteran off the scrap heap and now they have.
Here’s a preview of Cam Talbot’s newest Ghostbuster mask for next season… …in a word: AMAZING! Murray’s best line in Ghostbusters is one that so perfectly describes Rangers fans when anything good or bad happens…
After yesterday’s news regarding possible Rangers restricted free agent salary demands, the Blueshirts are likely to be up against or very close to the cap after re-signing all their RFAs. Which is a scary proposition considering I still think they need one more scorer. Sure, JT Miller and Oscar Lindberg have the ability to make […]
Here’s a little something to get your mind off the insanity that is the NHL offseason from the great AJ Castiglia…
….damn that was an amazing run. Let’s do it again this year!!!!!
Today is the release of “Part Three” of my prospect rankings, with this being my opinion on the top-12 prospects within the organization. You can view players 36-25 here and players 24-13 here. 12 (N/A) Mat Bodie, Defenseman, 24 Years Old The highest-ranked newcomer to the prospect pool. Bodie was the captain of Union […]
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 […]
This is “Part Two” of my ranking of the New York Rangers’ prospects. You can view “Part One,” which included players ranked 36th through 25th, via this link. Today is the release of players I’ve ranked 24th through 13th. 24 (16). Marek Hrivik, Winger, 22 Years Old He was underwhelming for majority of last […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
