Rangers Flocking Back To NY In Time For Camp

With the advent of social media, comes one of my favorite times in the hockey calendar… When players swap sandals for ice skates, bucket hats for helmets and start taking the ice in anticipation for a new season. Finally back in the big 🍎 can’t wait for the season to start

I hope that this new expansion to the site is where fans across the world can come and share their thoughts about our favorite team as well as introduce other features that make other message boards popular.

Raanta: I Never Rooted Against Blackhawks

I never expected having to write any news about the Rangers’ backup goaltending situation during the offseason, but here we are. Last Tuesday, a report out of Finland, which has been removed from the internet, stated that the newly signed Rangers backup goalie reportedly, was rooting against his former team, the Blackhawks, during their first round matchup […]


KHL Change Could Mean Tough Times For Russian NYR Prospects

Expanding a bit from my thoughts yesterday on Pavel Buchnevich, a potential change in the KHL’s leadership group could mean that any Russian players that wanted to come to North America could face tough challenges if the proposed changes were to go through. Again, from what I know, the expected move is Chernyshenko gets kicked […]


Four Thoughts: 9/2

1. Am I the only one that is becoming a tad bit nervous about the possibility of Rangers top offensive prospect Pavel Buchnevich opting to stay in Russia for the forseeable future? What’s turned from ‘likely 2015′ to ‘almost definitely 2016′ to now what he says “only time will tell,” according to a recent interview […]

So, What Did We Miss?

Ok, we’re back from our 4 week break, ready to leave the doldrums of summer behind and get set for the 2015-16 season, which promises to be another big one for the Rangers, who we know have gotten a bit of a makeover since they were defeated in Game 7 against Tampa, four long months ago. […]


Are You Ready For The Swamp Rabbits?

Yesterday, the New York Rangers ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors, changed their name to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. On top of the glorious new logo for the team comes what is probably the best hockey jersey ever…. (h/t Barstool Sports) Take my money!!! I haven’t forgotten about you guys and I’m ready to get […]


How Stoll Will Impact The Rangers In 15-16

I’m typically never good at these hiatus things, but Jarret Stoll signing with the Rangers on Monday was an interesting one and I wanted to expand a little more on it than I did the other day. Assuming Stoll makes the team right of out camp, and there is no reason to believe that he […]


Fan Post: The Forgotten Piece Of The Rick Nash Trade

Written by Bryan (King For Cup): As we all know, former Rangers GM Glen Sather was never afraid to make a big splash through free agency or in the trade market. Last year the Rangers picked up Keith Yandle, in 2014 the team nabbed Marty St. Louis from Tampa, in 2013 we saw the blockbuster […]


Fan Post: Was Keith Yandle Used Wisely In The 2015 Playoffs?

Written By: Bryan (King For Cup) After the blockbuster trade that saw the Rangers trade away their top prospect, Anthony Duclair, along with a third straight first round draft pick, many fans (myself included) were very critical of the Keith Yandle trade. Everybody knew Yandle as the defenseman who was a powerplay quarterback with great vision […]

Fan Post: Kevin Hayes And The Sophomore Slump

Written by: Bryan (King For Cup) As we have reached the dog days of the off-season, one thing that we can at the very least, is discuss Rangers rookie sensation Kevin Hayes and the dreaded sophomore slump. The sophomore slump is not just some made up phenomena. It is very real and has been witnessed firsthand […]


TheNYRBlog Takes A Short Break

So, after a whirlwind 2014-15 season on the ice, with the Rangers putting out their best record in franchise history and another playoff run that left the team and fans one win short of another Stanley Cup Final. Off the ice, with Kevin’s unexpected departure from the blog and everything that goes on behind the […]


Viktor Stalberg Hopes To Bring New Dimension To NYR Fourth Line

An apparent common theme in Jeff Gorton’s first summer as GM was looking for players with modest upside on the cheap in the free agent market, as the addition of Emerson Etem whom the Rangers hope will be a game changer at the top half of the Rangers lineup. The void on the bottom of […]
