Leetch Not Returning To NHL Department of Player Safety

Leetch joined the department last season and held the title of Manager of Player Safety. …hmmmmmm, I wonder if this has anything to do with the Blueshirts recent assistant coach vacancy. …God knows they could use his help on the power play.

Today, the Montreal Canadiens have announced that they have hired Rangers assistant coach Dan Lacroix. Lacroix, who is a Montreal native, fills the vacancy on Michel Therrien’s coaching staff after assistant coach Gerard Gallant was hired as the Florida Panthers’ new head coach.

Hayes Unlikely to Sign With Blackhawks By Aug. 15th Deadline

Recently, I’ve expressed my excitement over the Rangers ability to afford my current man crush Dan Carcillo now that they’ll likely have around $1.5 million of cap space after eventually re-signing John Moore. However, one player I’ve been negligent in mentioning, who they can also target, is Blackhawks draft pick Kevin Hayes. According to Hayes’ […]


Zuccarello Dominates Charity Soccer Game

Apparently, hockey isn’t the only game Mats Zuccarello dominates as he took his athletic talents to the soccer field this morning and ruled supreme with a 1g, 2a effort as his Man of the Match team defeated Handshake of Peace in a charity soccer game in Norway. Here’s video of Zuccarello’s goal against former Norwegian […]


Brown Burns Rangers Fans For a Third Time

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown has been burning Rangers fans his entire life. Growing up in the Rangers dominated community of Ithaca, New York, Brown rooted for the Vancouver Canucks in 1994 just to be different and annoy family and friends. Then this past June, Brown struck again as he helped lead his Kings […]


Lundqvist Shows Off New Equipment

Last week, Henrik Lundqvist’s new mask made it’s way around the internet, now the equipment he’ll be donning this season are on full display… …i’m a big fan.

Torts Pretty Much Hated Being In Vancouver

While we have a little break in Rangers news, I thought I’d pass along this amazing story about John Tortorella. It’s no secret that his short tenure in Vancouver was an unmitigated disaster. A disciplinarian taking over a well established, veteran team? What could go wrong? However, it wasn’t Tortorella trying to convince the Sedin […]


Relax, Rangers Still Have Cap Space

After the announcement of Derrick Brassard’s five-year, $25 million contract, many Rangers fans criticized the size of the deal because of the club’s cap situation. However, in reality, the Rangers financial situation is more than sound… In fact, that number would jump to around $1.5M if Lindberg ($675K per) made the team over Fast ($805K) […]


Rangers Style of Play Suits Stempniak’s Game

If you’re going to succeed in Alain Vigneault’s system, you’re going to have to be able to skate and forecheck. Thankfully for the Rangers, it sounds as if those are two of Lee Stempniak’s strong suits (via Blueshirts United)… “The style of play they play is well-suited to my game, and I think I can […]


Brassard Wants To Remain A Ranger For A Long Time (Brassard Asking for $4.95M Per)

Update, 11:01 a.m.: Pre-Brassard arbitration hearing proposals: …while being over $1M apart is never a good thing, I love that Brassard’s number isn’t above $5M. How about four years at $4.4M per? Would leave the Rangers with around $2.6M to re-sign Moore and possibly another depth forward. …#carcilloeffect is that much closer to returning home!!!! […]


New Lundqvist Mask Released

If you’re a goaltender junkie like I am (have I mentioned I played in high school?), the announcement of new equipment or face mask is always an exciting day. Even more so when it involves the best netminder in the NHL, who’s life outside of hockey revolves around fashion. So let’s take a look at […]


Top Six Candidates To Become The 27th Captain In Rangers History

Now that the Rangers roster is rounding into shape, the next biggest question is who’s going to lead this team? After trading away Ryan Callahan last March, the Rangers decided to go with three alternate captains instead of naming a new captain for the remainder of the season. During the Rangers run to the Stanley […]

As soon as news broke that the Rangers decided to sign Mats Zucarello to a one-year deal instead of a long term contract, many fans expressed their concern that the diminutive winger could leave the Blueshirts as an unrestricted free agent next season for a bigger pay day. However, Zuccarello has always shown allegiance to […]

Brassard Could Get $5.6M Per Contract; Door Not Closed on Carcillo

Now that Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello are back in the fold with relatively cheap contracts, it’s anticipated that Sather might be getting ready to dole out some big money with the re-signing of Derrick Brassard as Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that a long-term deal for the center iceman is likely to […]
