Found July 13, 2012 on Next Level Sports Network:
It came as no surprise to many Caps fans when George McPhee announced veterans Jeff Halpern and Mike Knuble would not return to the team. The only question remained was if an NHL organization would give the two players another shot. Halpern will be headed to the Big Apple after signing a one-year, $700,000 contract [...]

Please stay stubborn Glen Sather

For years I couldn’t stand Glen Sather.  The man steadfastly refused to stop star chasing and as a result the Rangers failed to make any progress, stuck as a perennial borderline playoff team and incapable of putting together a true contender. Sather learned his lesson and now just as stubbornly refuses to abandon his plan of sticking with youth by including prized youngsters...

Minor signing: Rangers sign Brandon Segal

In another depth move designed to strengthen the Connecticut Whale, the Rangers have signed RW Brandon Segal. Terms of the deal are still undisclosed, but Segal is likely going to be an insurance policy for the CT Whale, as the 29 year old winger has just 102 NHL games under his belt (11-11-22). The 6’2″, 209 lb RW plays consistent minutes in the AHL, but has never found the...

Taylor Pyatt Discusses Signing With Rangers, Tortorella

Newly signed Taylor Pyatt has been on a few teams that made deep runs in the playoffs, and while he does admit that the Rangers were able to offer a more secure contract than the Coyotes, stuck in ownership limbo, were able to, it's clear that the state of the Rangers' organization also played a tremendous factor. As he told The Chronicle Journal, this might be his chance...

Lightning UFA Brandon Segal Signs with the New York Rangers

  Career AHL veteran Brandon Segal, who has appeared in over 500 games in the American Hockey League, has signed a new deal with the New York Rangers. A journeyman who has played for six AHL teams and three NHL teams, Segal was most recently a part of the Lightning organization, his second stint in Tampa [...]

Who Will Round Out The Rangers' Defense?

McDonagh, Staal, Girardi, and Del Zotto collectively make up arguably the best top-four defensemen that any team in the NHL has to work with. Anton Stralman, who filed for salary arbitration, is likely to return to the team and find his home on the third pairing. But one spot on the blue-line is still available and there is, at this time, a lot of uncertainty as to who willl fill...

Small Signing in Jeff Halpern

It really has been a quite summer for the New York Rangers this off-season. Sure, they have made some news but certainly not the big splashes we are used to seeing the team make during the free agency season. Yesterday, the Blueshirts made another small move in signing forward Jeff Halpern to a 1-year deal worth $700k. Definitely cannot complain about the terms or the money being...

Sign more autographs of course.The Rangers Facebooked out this pic of Kreider at today's NYR Youth Hockey Camp......and Columbus thinks the Rangers are going to trade this kid to them for Nash. I don't think so.Jim Cerny over at Blueshirts...

One door closes while others begin to open

It is moving day for the Prospect Park and family as our house finally closed; the movers have come and taken all of our stuff away and I'm sitting here on the floor using a box as the table trying to write something about the New York Rangers. I can't because as much as one chapter in my life is over another one "the great adventure" as my wife likes to call...

Former Ranger Theo Fleury: The Country Music Singer

ESPN Playbook has a story today on former New York Rangers winger Theo Fleury and his quest to become a country music singer. “It will be different,” he said about returning to the Saddledome with the ice covered by a floor and stage. “I’m excited for the opportunity. I take it very seriously. It hasn’t [...]

Minor signing: Rangers add defenseman Sean Collins

In their second minor signing of the day, the Blueshirts have reportedly inked 28-year old defenseman Sean Collins. Collins went undrafted but has been a member of the Washington Capitals’ organization for the last six years.  During that time, Collins has seen 21 games of NHL action and registered two goals and an assist.  Collins, a right-handed shot, has primarily played...

Would You Include Dan Girardi in a Trade for Shea Weber?

It's a slow day in NYR news, and NHL news overall, and I've gotten into a debate with several Rangers fans on Twitter over what a team should/would be willing to part with in a trade to improve itself.Obviously, you want to trade from an area of strength to improve the team's weakness i.e sacrificing an abundance of defense for some scoring. It's the lay of the land...

And your savior is ???????????

Such a nice Jewish boy (Blueshirts United) Day one of the Shane Doan sweepstakes and the New York Rangers went out and signed Jeff Halpern, a 36-year-old center who played for the Washington Cpitals last season. A one-year deal for 700K that really isn't as bad a deal as some might think. Yes, I understand Jeff Halpern is not what anybody was expecting and even I have...
