Despite being less than $1 million per year apart on a new contract, Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Chris Kreider and the Rangers seem likely headed to arbitration tomorrow morning. Brooks adds that while both sides have shown a willingness to compromise, each also has a bottom-line number off which it […]
Looks like Henrik Lundqvist is quickly finding out that not even a penthouse is big enough to contain all of his daughter’s toys, as apparently (h/t The Henrik Lundqvist Blog) he’s put his Hell’s Kitchen penthouse on sale for a mere $6,495,000.

Here’s a preview of Cam Talbot’s newest Ghostbuster mask for next season… …in a word: AMAZING! Murray’s best line in Ghostbusters is one that so perfectly describes Rangers fans when anything good or bad happens…
After yesterday’s news regarding possible Rangers restricted free agent salary demands, the Blueshirts are likely to be up against or very close to the cap after re-signing all their RFAs. Which is a scary proposition considering I still think they need one more scorer. Sure, JT Miller and Oscar Lindberg have the ability to make […]
