After last season’s insane opening nine-game road trip, you’d assume the Rangers travel schedule would be a breeze this year. Not so fast. Despite the marathon west coast adventure, the Rangers actually traveled the fewest miles of any team in the NHL last season with just 29,839. San Jose traveled the furthest in 2013-14 with […]
Henrik Lundqvist better watch his back because it looks like a fresh face is ready to take the fashion world by storm. And his name is Mats Zuccarello. Last week, Zuccarello began modeling for Oslo’s own Moods of Norway fashion company. Here’s some video…
Today, the Rangers announced their roster for the 2014 Traverse City Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan which will begin on Friday, September 12th. FORWARDS: Nathan Burns; Anthony Duclair; Ryan Haggerty; Keegan Iverson; Michael Kantor; Nickolas Latta; Paxton Leroux; Chris McCarthy; Bryan Moore; Richard Nejezchleb; Logan Nelson; Josh Nicholls; Michael St. Croix; Adam Tambellini. DEFENSEMEN: Matt Bodie; Troy Donnay; Ryan Mantha; Sam Noreau; Dallas Valentine; Daniel Walcott; […]
Now that the forward positions have been pretty much filled out, the next question is what are the lines going to look like. Will the Kreider-Stepan-Nash line remain intact? Is Stempniak automatically going to be placed with Brassard and Zuccarello? Is JT Miller the best option for the third line center position? Obviously there’s going […]
Here’s an outstanding video from
Yesterday, the Rangers announced that they have re-signed former 2009 third round pick Ryan Bourque. After combining for just 14g, 15a his first two injury plagued seasons in Hartford, Bourque tallied 21g, 16a in 74 games last season. No terms were released. …Bourque is definitely overlooked when it comes to fourth line options for the […]
As I alluded to yesterday, early August is the hockey journalism equivalent of being stranded on a deserted island with no water, no shelter, and Janice from “FRIENDS” as your only companion. It’s boring. It’s torturous. There’s practically nothing going on of note. Thus, writers will reach for stories that probably wouldn’t make the cut […]
The NHL offseason means a bunch of bored professional players do absurd and goofy things and a bunch of bored hockey writer post about them. Chris Kreider was summoned to complete something called the “Ice Bucket Challenge” in which he gets drenched with stupidly cold water and ice. Somehow, this is supposed to raise awareness […]
Apparently, Henrik Lundqvist is looking for change in his life as two weeks after news broke that he put his Hell’s Kitchen apartment on the market, word from The Henrik Lundqvist Blog is that he just purchased a new villa in Onsala, Sweden for $7.85 million Swedish krona ($1,135,541.73 American). Here’s some pics and details… […]
It’s only early August, but signs of the upcoming hockey season’s arrival already exist. Countries are holding U20 summer camps in order to get in some early evaluations of players who could potentially suit up at the World Junior Championships in December, and the Rangers own the rights to a handful of prospects who have […]
I’ve always been a fierce defender of Brian Boyle, so it was obviously tough to see him sign elsewhere this offseason. The great AJ Castiglia gives him a proper farewell with this video tribute…
…his absence will be must noticeable on the penalty kill and in the defensive end. Especially when the Rangers are likely going to count on Lombardi and Glass to fill his role, which in my opinion seems like a downgrade.
If you’re a Rangers fan who hated Michael Del Zotto, you’re REALLY going to hate him now as the Philadelphia Flyers announced they have signed the former Blueshirt defenseman to a one-year deal.
On Saturday, James posted about the possibility of Darryl Williams reuniting with Alain Vigneault on the Rangers coaching staff. Today, the Rangers made it official by announcing Williams will replace the recently departed Dan Lacroix as the team’s assistant coach. Williams spent the last six seasons as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks. Prior […]
Still not much real hockey related news to report in Rangersland, so I figured I’d make my female readers, and some male (not that there’s anything wrong with it), happy with this Henrik Lundqvist shirtless commercial (H/T The Henrik Lundqvist Blog)… …swooooooooooooooooooooon!!!!!!! Meanwhile, Mats Zuccarello had a video message for Rangers fans…. Post by Mats […]
