Michael Del Zotto has agreed to tentative terms with NYR and is expected in camp today tho aspects of contract are still being worked on. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) January 13, 2013 No terms have been released. ...had to assume this would get done this morning. Tough to comment without knowing the terms, but I can say that I'm glad to see Del Zotto back. Despite his defensive miscues, I think the Rangers would have really missed him if they couldn't have worked something out.

Brooks: Rangers ask Redden to sit the season out

So long Wade. One day after we discussed how Wade Redden might need to be an emergency call up if the injuries mount, Larry Brooks noted that the Rangers will ask Redden to sit the season out: It appears Wade Redden will sit out the season at home at the Rangers’ request in order to ensure he does not get hurt and thus jeopardize the planned postseason compliance buyout of the...

Rangers could use a depth forward

Right now, the following has been reported as Torts’ early line combos.

More than Fair

These are the exact words that can be used to describe New York Rangers' defenseman Michael Del Zotto's new two-year deal with the club. There is no doubting Del Zotto's offensive skills. Last season, Del Zotto was fifth on the team in the regular season with 41 points (10 goals and 31 assists) while adding another 10 (2 goals and 8 assists) in 20 postseason games....

Hockey systems: What Nash means to the Rangers power play

Hockey will be back soon and finally we can start talking about the systems and strategies of this great game we all know and love. One of the most critical – and contested – aspects of the Rangers system in 2012 was their power play. For the sake of brevity, I will just say that last year’s mediocre power play was not due to coaching decisions or their umbrella formation...

Rangers Give Redden Permission to Talk With Other Teams

Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that the Rangers have given Wade Redden permission to speak with other NHL teams about a possible trade.

Brooks thinks this might be an option the Rangers use to entice a team into a trade for Redden, who has another year left on his...

Rangers Ready To Go To Work

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, This is the organization Rangers fans have dreamed of for generations — one that is rich in blue-blooded, blue-collar laborers who come to work with a single-minded sense of purpose that honors the season ticket-holders who pay the very expensive freight. In New York, we expect our top athletes to make top dollar. All we expect in return...

Henrik Lundqvist plays “Sweet Child O’ Mine” on Jimmy Fallon

If you watched the HBO 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic mini series last year, then you know that New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is a fantastic guitar player.  It appears that the writers over on Jimmy Fallon had the brilliant idea to have him come out and play a bit of the Guns N’ Roses classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine” to commemorate the end of the NHL Lockout. ...

Scott Gomez, Wade Redden are first amnesty buyout casualties

If you were to ask people who they felt would be the first two amnesty buyouts under the NHL's new CBA, they probably would have said Wade Redden and Scott Gomez. Apparently lots of folks have ESP, or at the very least have been alive and conscious the past couple of years, because who will be the first two guys bought out? Why, Redden and Gomez, of course! Redden came...
