Edmonton Oilers v New York Rangers

Four Thoughts: 6/29

1) The business side of the NHL isn’t always an easy one when it comes to letting go of players fans have seen grow in the system and become integral pieces of the puzzle, as with the case of Cam Talbot and Carl Hagelin who’ve become fan favorites, were sent packing just minutes apart on […]


NHL Entry Draft Open Thread

Happy Draft Day!! As of 10:15 AM EDT, the Rangers own the 59th, 89th, 119th, 179th and 209th overall picks. Cam Talbot has yet to be traded, however according to reports from the draft in Fort Lauderdale, FL, the Rangers are on the cusp of moving Talbot which will help free up cap space for Rangers […]


Four Thoughts: 6/25

1) A lot to take away from the Board of Governors meetings yesterday in Las Vegas as several rules changes headlined the news that came from it. The biggest change undoubtedly will be going from 4v4 to 3v3 OT. I’m not entirely sold that it will dramatically reduce shootouts like many fans expect/hoping for simply […]


Report: NYR Decline Two 2nd Round Picks For Talbot

In today’s Cam Talbot watch, Darren Dreger in a TSN radio interview yesterday in Edmonton, detailed a trade offer for Talbot that the Rangers declined: “… I would have thought based on the information that I had gathered last Thursday that a deal could have happened as early as the weekend and it didn’t. So […]


Stay Or Go: Carl Hagelin

Up next among the Ranger free agents the team will have to make a decision on is the speedy Carl Hagelin. While there’s no reason to believe at this point that Hagelin won’t be back in Rangers blue in October, that decision may not seem so cut and dry. Hagelin’s coming off a two year […]

Cam Talbot is a hot commodity. Edmtn, Cgy, SJ, Dallas + Florida have expressed interest. Multiple trade offers. First 3 most likely targets. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger)

Colorado Avalanche v New York Rangers

Buyout Period Begins Today; Zuccarello Presser

As mandated by the CBA, the NHL buyout period began this morning and concludes on June 30th. Dan Boyle has been rumored to be at the forefront of a potential buyout. Per War-On-Ice’s buyout calculator, a buyout would save $3 million in cap space, but would count towards NYR payroll in 2016-17 in $1.5 million […]


Four Thoughts: 6/17

1) Final takeaways of the 2014-15 season… I’m very well aware my Tampa in 7 prediction fell flat on its face, Tyler Johnson’s broken wrist and Ben Bishop’s torn groin be damned, regardless of what Mike Milbury says. My expectations that Tampa’s depth would rise to the top and overwhelm the Blackhawks’ very short staffed […]


Stay Or Go: Derek Stepan

Depending on who you ask, Derek Stepan is or isn’t the top center on the Rangers, but there’s one thing that’s undeniable heading into this offseason… he’s going to be paid like one. Stepan’s 2014-15 campaign didn’t begin until November 8th after he fractured his fibula in training camp, but luckily for the Rangers, he came […]

Four Thoughts: 6/11

1) As you may or may not have heard, last night during Game 4 there was a battle of a different kind taking place that could very well change the course of the Arizona Coyotes franchise. In a city council meeting, the mayor among other Glendale, AZ council members voted to terminate the lease agreement […]
