Projecting the penalty killing forwards

Derek Dorsett, penalty killing machine (Image Credit: Getty Images) September is almost upon us, which means that we are getting closer and closer to hockey season. The Rangers didn’t make any major overhauls this offseason, so what you saw last year is pretty much the same team you will get this year.

Glen Sather says lot of interest in Brian Boyle, updates Stepan talks

New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather usually stays pretty quiet. When he's not busy smoking cigars he keeps a pretty low profile especially when he still has work to do this summer in needing to re-sign Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin still. When he does talk though Sather is usually pretty straightforward and honest. Such as when he went on Edmonton's Team 1260 to...

Saturday Musings: will Nash net?

My name is Rick Nash. I am very good at hockey. The quiet season is well and truly underway but that doesn’t mean the hockey world is standing still. Let’s have a look around the league and have an impromptu musings shall we? The Capitals signed Mikhail Grabovski this week and it’s a good move. They needed to add some talent and he’s a solid center. It’s incredible to think...

Lack of right handed shots a cause for concern for the powerplay

This past offseason, the Rangers addressed their biggest holes, signing and trading for depth players that will likely play a key role in this team’s push for a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. While there are still some questions to be answered (mostly around line formations), perhaps the biggest area for concern heading into the season is the lack of right-handed...

Jan Levine: Sather Talks Torts, Vigneault, Stepan, Boyle, Staal and Richards

The key headlines, as others have pointed out are: 1) Sather denied that the players came to him asking for Torts to be...

Report: Leafs, Kadri remain far apart in negotiations

Nazem Kadri said that “it’s not his job” to worry about the Toronto Maple Leafs’ salary cap situation on Tuesday. Saturday provides more evidence of that thought because if Sportsnet’s David Alter’s report is correct Kadri wants more than the Buds currently have. Kadri’s camp reportedly began with a six-year $36 million proposal but knocked that price down $1 million...

For the past couple of months, I've been keeping you updated on the RFA status of four young centers: Cody Hodgson, Derek Stepan, Nazem Kadri, and Adam Henrique. Whats the hold up in re-signing these four dynamic players? NY Rangers GM Glen Sather said Friday night that he will not be signing Stepan to a long term contract.

Jan Levine: Offseason 20+ Questions: Brassard's Play In NY: True Reality or Fools Gold?

While we wait for training camp to open in September 12, not much is going on in Rangers land. Based on that, I wanted to get back to the 20+ offseason questions. As a reminder here is a link to the 20+ questions initially raised, I have explicitly covered questions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 14 previously. Implicitly, we covered 16.
