118th Overall: Rangers Select Goaltender Igor Shestyorkin

The Rangers have taken their second goaltender of the draft. This time, it’s Igor Shestyorkin (or Americanized to “Shesterkin”) of SKA St. Petersberg in the KHL. Shestyorkin mostly played in the MHL (the junior league for the KHL) and had a 1.42 GAA and .947 Save %. He got a few starts in the KHL, […]

104th Overall Pick: Rangers Select Defenseman Ryan Mantha

The Rangers drafted their first defenseman of the draft with their 104th overall pick, and it’s Ryan Mantha out of the USHL. Unrelated to Detroit Red Wings’ prospect Anthony Mantha, I’ve never seen him play, so I can’t comment on his game. Here’s what I can tell you, though. He’s absolutely massive; 6’5 and 225 […]

85th Overall: Rangers Select Forward Keegan Iverson

With the 85th overall pick, the Rangers selected Keegan Iverson, a forward who plays for the Portland Winterhawks. Iverson, 18, was once seen as a 1st-round talent, possibly even top-10. He has failed to translate his raw talents into high-end production in the WHL, however. His 2012-2013 season was disastrous, with him scoring only four […]


NHL Draft Day 2 Open Thread

Hey, at least we get to watch the Rangers actually select players today instead of sitting at the draft table twiddling their thumbs. BTW, how much of a kick to the nuts was it watching Tampa send the first round pick they obtained from the Rangers in the Martin St. Louis trade to the Islanders, […]


Why Are The Rangers Getting Rid Of Their Fourth Line?

A very disturbing trend seems to be taking place this offseason for the Rangers…the very integral fourth line is being split up. The first shoe to drop was the jettisoning of Derek Dorsett to the Canucks yesterday for a third round pick. Add that to Brian Boyle choosing free agency over negotiating a new contract […]


NHL Draft Open Thread

Even though the Rangers don’t have a first round pick tonight, with all the trade activity today, I thought things might get interesting so I decided to setup an open thread. To get you guys in the drafting mindset here’s video of Gordie Clark and Jeff Gorton talking draft strategies, prospects and more…


Boyle Headed To Free Agency; Pouliot Getting 3-Year, $9M Offers

Any Rangers fan hoping that next year’s roster will resemble last year’s Stanley Cup Finalist squad is going to be sorely disappointed. Wednesday night, we heard that talks with Anton Stralman are not going well, now Pat Leonard at the Daily News is reporting that Brian Boyle plans on heading to free agency. Leonard says […]


Little Chance of Rangers Trading Into First Round of NHL Draft

With the Rangers not holding a first round pick for the second straight season, I’ve seen some fans hoping they’d be able to acquire one before tonight’s draft in Philadelphia. Whelp, according to Gordie Clark, don’t hold your breath. He told Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record that there’s little chance of the Rangers trading […]

Talks With Stralman Not Going As Expected

I don’t think any Ranger fans thought contract talks with Anton Stralman would go smoothly, but Renaud Lavoie gives us our first indication that the defenseman could be in a new uniform by next Tuesday afternoon… Talks between Rangers and Anton Stralman are not going as expected. We’ll see if it’s gona change in the next […]

Retain or Release: Raphael Diaz

Raphael Diaz, in a lot of ways, seems inconsequential. After all the noise surrounding the Callahan/St.Louis swap, he was quietly shipped to New York as depth for a fifth-round pick. He played a handful of games in the regular season and then a few more in the playoffs. All without much fanfare. In that sense, […]

Dominic Moore Wants To Stay With Rangers

After receiving his Masterton Award last night, Dominic Moore discussed his thoughts on re-signing with the Rangers (via New York Post)… “I’ve told [the Rangers] that I want to stay and I want to keep it simple,” Moore said. “My agent [Larry Kelly] has been in touch with them, but as of now there hasn’t […]
