Meanwhile, Mats Zuccarello had a video message for Rangers fans…. Post by Mats […]

Rangers Haven’t Spoken to Staal About Extension

Now that the Rangers have avoided arbitration with their big three restricted free agents and John Moore is likely to be back in the fold sooner rather than later, it’s time to focus on next year’s unrestricted free agents, namely Marc Staal. Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that up until this point […]

Leetch Not Returning To NHL Department of Player Safety

Leetch joined the department last season and held the title of Manager of Player Safety. …hmmmmmm, I wonder if this has anything to do with the Blueshirts recent assistant coach vacancy. …God knows they could use his help on the power play.

Lacroix, who is a Montreal native, fills the vacancy on Michel Therrien’s coaching staff after assistant coach Gerard Gallant was hired as the Florida Panthers’ new head coach.

Hayes Unlikely to Sign With Blackhawks By Aug. 15th Deadline

Recently, I’ve expressed my excitement over the Rangers ability to afford my current man crush Dan Carcillo now that they’ll likely have around $1.5 million of cap space after eventually re-signing John Moore. However, one player I’ve been negligent in mentioning, who they can also target, is Blackhawks draft pick Kevin Hayes. According to Hayes’ […]

Here’s video of Zuccarello’s goal against former Norwegian […]

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown has been burning Rangers fans his entire life. Growing up in the Rangers dominated community of Ithaca, New York, Brown rooted for the Vancouver Canucks in 1994 just to be different and annoy family and friends.

Lundqvist Shows Off New Equipment

Last week, Henrik Lundqvist’s new mask made it’s way around the internet, now the equipment he’ll be donning this season are on full display… …i’m a big fan. Recently, Lundqvist’s pads have been predominantly white… …but I like that he’s now gone with a little more color similar to when he first cracked into the league…

Torts Pretty Much Hated Being In Vancouver

While we have a little break in Rangers news, I thought I’d pass along this amazing story about John Tortorella. It’s no secret that his short tenure in Vancouver was an unmitigated disaster. A disciplinarian taking over a well established, veteran team? What could go wrong? However, it wasn’t Tortorella trying to convince the Sedin […]

Relax, Rangers Still Have Cap Space

After the announcement of Derrick Brassard’s five-year, $25 million contract, many Rangers fans criticized the size of the deal because of the club’s cap situation. However, in reality, the Rangers financial situation is more than sound… In fact, that number would jump to around $1.5M if Lindberg ($675K per) made the team over Fast ($805K) […]

Rangers Style of Play Suits Stempniak’s Game

If you’re going to succeed in Alain Vigneault’s system, you’re going to have to be able to skate and forecheck. Thankfully for the Rangers, it sounds as if those are two of Lee Stempniak’s strong suits (via Blueshirts United)… “The style of play they play is well-suited to my game, and I think I can […]
