Kostka Recalled; Lombardi Contract Terminated

As expected, in the wake of the Dan Boyle injury, the Rangers have Renaud Lavoie at TVA Sports reports that the Rangers will place Matthew Lombardi on unconditional waivers as he refused to report to Hartford. His contract will be mutually terminated and he’ll likely head back to the Swiss League. …this is not unexpected, […]

Rangers Preview & Predictions for 2014-15

We did it, folks. A summer worth of enduring pictures of Kings players enjoying themselves with the Stanley Cup around the world, watching re-runs of the Stanley Cup Final and the image of Lundqvist flat on his stomach with the Kings celebrating feet away is over. Time to get down to business. It isn’t completely […]


Brassard Lobbied For Hagelin On His Line

With everything Alain Vigneault touched turning to gold last season, it’s tough to criticize any of his decisions these days. However, after seeing his likely opening night forward lines this week I have to question the thought process behind removing Chris Kreider from the Derick Brassard/Mats Zuccarello line which seemed to display some chemistry this preseason. Kreider-St. […]


It’s Finally Here!!!!!

So this was pretty much what I did in my bedroom immediately after waking up this morning and remembering it’s opening night… The Rangers players are sort of excited as well… Alain Vigneault… “I feel real good about this team. We are a good team, and we understand that if you are to be successful in […]


Hayes Out of Non-Contact Jersey, Skating as an Extra

As Kevin Hayes predicted, he remained the same as yesterday… Kreider-St. Louis-Nash Hagelin-Brassard-Zuccarello Duclair-Miller-Stempniak Glass-D. Moore-Fast …it looks like Hayes is going to start the season in the press box and likely won’t see the ice unless someone struggles. And even then, AV would have to select him over the experience Malone brings to the […]

Rangers tickets up 18% since last season on secondary market

After a long summer of reflecting on what could have been, the start of the New York Rangers’ regular season schedule is once again just around the corner. A five-game Stanley Cup Final loss to the Kings left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Rangers and their fans, even if the season was […]


McDonagh Named 27th Captain in Rangers History

There was no fan fare. No big press conference. No bells and whistles. And I’m sure that’s exactly how Ryan McDonagh wanted it as he was quietly named the 27th captain in New York Rangers history during a private team dinner last night. If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know that I […]

Rangers Roster Takes Shape As Mueller Waived, Stepan to LTIR

Lots of transactions this morning as the Rangers whittled their roster down to 23 players. First to the obvious… …no surprises here as none of these players did enough to earn a spot on the opening night roster. Having said that, don’t be surprised if we see one or two of these guys in a […]
