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…)


Brassard, Kreider & Zuccarello File for Salary Arbitration

All three can continue to negotiate with the Rangers on a new contract until their hearing date which will be at the end of July or early August. …this is actually fantastic news because it means that none of the three will holdout nor can another team submit an offer sheet. Worse case scenario is […]

Soooooo, Are The Rangers Going To Sign Anyone Else?

It seems as though every day the pool of available second and third line forwards gets shallower and shallower as Glen Sather continues to sit on the sidelines… Obviously, I have no idea if Santorelli or Legwand were interested in signing with the Rangers, but that doesn’t seem to matter because I didn’t see a […]

Zuccarello Knows Rangers Are In Cap Squeeze

Negotiations are always a volatile thing. They’re liable to change rapidly and unpredictably, mostly for the worse. And contract talks with Mats Zuccarello have been no different. First was Glen Sather downplaying the diminutive winger’s contributions to the team during an impromptu draft day press conference in which he pointed out that Zuccarello has really had […]


The Rangers Aren’t Done; Possibly Another Forward Coming?

While I was happy with the moves Glen Sather made on Tuesday, I’m still looking for a bit of an upgrade at forward. And it sounds like the Rangers are in agreement as assistant General Manager Jeff Gorton said this on whether the Blueshirts were done making moves this offseason during a conference call to discuss […]


Prospect Camp Days 2 & 3 Highlights

Obviously, with the free agency insanity I’ve been remiss in updating the goings-on at the Rangers prospect development camp the last two days. So here’s a little compilation. Day 2 & 3 scrimmage & shootout highlights… One guy who I feel gets over-looked by Rangers fans (myself included) when discussing possible prospects legitimately vying for […]


Rangers Fans, Take a Chill Pill and Relax

As a Rangers fan, I know the ups and downs of what NHL free agency can bring. Especially under Glen Sather’s tenure. Need I remind you of some of the names our beloved GM has splurged money on in the past? I’ll spare you there *Scott Gomez* because, when you *Wade Redden* stop and actually […]


Callahan Helped Bring Boyle & Stralman to Tampa

Apparently, revenge is a dish best served cold, as Ryan Callahan looks to have jumped at the first opportunity to burn his former team. According to Tampa GM Steve Yzerman, the former Rangers captain was solicited to provide useful information on Brian Boyle and Anton Stralman before the team decided to sign both his former […]

Rangers Boost Hartford Wolf Pack With Flurry of Signings

The New York Rangers let a lot of players at the AHL level with expiring contracts walk, meaning they had plenty of spots to fill. They largely did so yesterday, signing as many as six players who could potentially start the season with the Hartford Wolf Pack. Here is a quick rundown on those players. […]
