2010-nhl-draft-portraits
Ah, the impatient and rarely satisfied New York Rangers fans. Despite the high degree of drafting success the Rangers have enjoyed under Player Personnel Director Gordie Clark and his staff, Blue Shirt backers still aren’t happy with the selection of Dylan McIlrath, selected 10th overall in 2010 and who has failed to make it to […]

Is there space for McIlrath?

When will McIlrath be intimidating NHL forwards? The Rangers drafted Dylan McIlrath 10th overall in 2010 and ever since, media and fans have been waiting for his arrival. While McIlrath is now completely healthy and at Rangers camp looking to make the team there doesn’t appear space in the defensive unit even though his style is an absolute need. The Rangers are blessed with a...

Devils drop Rangers in preseason opener

(Phillip MacCallum/Getty Images) The Rangers were in Newark tonight, and lost the preseason opener 2-1 that showcased some solid goaltending and some decent prospect play. This was likely the only preseason action for some forwards, but others earned more preseason time to see what they can bring to the lineup on a regular basis. We aren’t going to go into full goal breakdowns...

First cuts made, 14 reassigned to Hartford or Juniors

As expected, the Rangers made their first cuts after today’s scrimmage. The cuts were all players that did not partake in the intra-squad game. Generally speaking, the first round of cuts is usually CHL players bound for Juniors anyway, and AHL players that likely just didn’t make the cut during camp this year. Those that were reassigned to their respective Juniors teams: Forwards...

Rangers roster for tomorrow’s game announced

After tonight’s loss to the Devils, AV revealed his roster for tomorrow, per Andrew Gross: Forwards: Andrew Yogan, Taylor Pyatt, Micheal Haley, Benoit Pouilot, Darroll Powe, Oscar Lindberg, Dominic Moore, Derick Brassard, Michael Kantor, Jesper Fast, Derek Dorsett, Mats Zuccarello Defense: Dylan McIlrath, Dan Girardi, Ryan McDonagh, Danny Syvret, Anton Stralman, Connor Allen Goalie...

Why won't the Rangers pay Derek Stepan?

14 months ago, the NY Rangers dealt forwards Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, D-Prospect Erixon and their first round pick in this past talent laden draft for Rick Nash and his 7.8 million dollar contract... Hindsight is what it is, but to be fair most people at the time were saying the Jackets took far less than they should have... Today, the NY Rangers are able to sign Derek...

Alain Vigneault Adjusts to Life in “la Grosse Pomme”

New Rangers Coach Alain Vigneault spoke to RDS' Stéphane Leroux about adjusting to life in New York City (roughly translated by yours truly): We're getting used to the big city. Before I had a five minute drive to work, maybe fifteen if I walked slowly. In New York, I'm 25 miles from our training site. But New York...it's New York." Said the new Rangers...

John Tortorella Threatens to ‘Walk,’ After Cell Phone Goes Off, Tells Cameraman That’s ‘Major-League Fine’ (Video)

New city, same John Tortorella. The Canucks coach took the podium on Monday morning to discuss what he’s looking for out of his young players when they take on the Sharks in their preseason opener. It was a seemingly calm event, but the mood quickly changed when a cameraman’s cell phone started ringing during the middle of the coach’s media availability. “That’s gonna...

The unexpected goalie competition

Biron is at the center of an unexpected goalie competition. When August turned to September, the one position that had zero uncertainty was goaltender. Henrik Lundqvist is the starter, and Martin Biron was supposed to be the backup. A wrench was thrown into that plan when Biron missed the first two days of camp with a personal issue, and the Rangers invited former Devil Johan Hedberg...

Rangers holdout Stepan may fall behind

As time ticks away with Derek Stepan not in the Rangers training camp there’s growing doubt that when he comes back — if he comes back — that he can fit right in immediately. There was no news on Saturday concerning the restricted free agent’s contract holdout as both the team and Stepan’s agent are negotiating over terms. And with now two days of full practice behind...

NHL Henrik Lundqvist For Mr. Porter’s Weekly Journal “The Look”

Online retailer MrPorter.com recently hooked-up with New York Rangers star Henrik Lundqvist for a feature entitled “The Look” for their Weekly Journal. Henrik’s feature included a fun-filled  fashion shoot where he was enrobed in some of the latest styles for men. Henrik is arguably the best-dressed athlete today, and his stardom off-the-ice continues to progress in the wonderful...

Expect AV to bring in his type of players

Hedberg could have a shot at winning the backup role (Photo: AP) This past offseason Glen Sather kept this roster pretty much intact in hopes that Alain Vineault and his new coaching staff would be the difference makers to get this team over the hump. With that said, any time a team changes coaches there’s always going to be some roster turnover that follows. At this point we don’t...

You Can Feel The Change In New York

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, You don’t have to squint all that hard to read between the lines of the “Clean Slate…Grab it” motto the Rangers are wearing on their sleeves — and their training camp T-shirts — in order to deduce this fresh start everyone, but everyone, apparently craves is as close to an organizational repudiation of the John Tortorella Era...

Training camp update: Scrimmage lines from today; Televised on MSG

John Tortorella Lays Down Cellphone Rules For Vancouver’s Media

John Tortorella might have been introduced as the Vancouver Canucks head coach in June, but everyone knew the union wouldn’t feel complete until he had has first spat with the local media. Well everybody, that day has finally come. Around 12 seconds into the video you can faintly hear a phone going off as Torts discusses the upcoming preseason games. Upon hearing the sound he...
