Found February 08, 2014 on Hockey Trades | NHL Trade Rumors:
PLAYERS: Dan Girardi
TEAMS: New York Rangers
Dan Girardi of the New York Rangers is looking for a change of scenery as he approaches free agency. According to his agent, "You have to consider cost of living in New York — 55 percent of every dollar isn’t theirs."  Girardi who is 29 years old is a top pairing defenceman and is coming off an annual cap hit contract of $3.33 million. The latest NHL rumours say he is looking for a 6 year

Have the Rangers reached elite status?

Let’s face it. The Rangers had an atrocious start to the season. There are really no two ways about it. When they started overseas due, once again, to the Madison Square Garden renovations, luck was clearly not on their side, nor was any kind of team chemistry. But as we approach the Olympic break, it […]

Musings: Girardi and Cally, momentum, and the playoffs

He will be signed (Photo: Bruce Bennett/Getty Images North America) Chris is still MIA, so if you happen to be walking through the city and see a lost Welschman, please direct him back to his laptop so that he can continue writing the musings. I know you like his ramblings more than mine. But for now you will need to make do with me. This whole Ryan Callahan thing is getting blown...

MSG Sunday: King for a Day

This came to me via email this afternoon. I thought you guys would be interested as we head into the Olympic break. Sunday February 9 will be dedicated to Henrik Lundqvist, and MSG will seven and a half hours of hockey televised honoring Hank. The press release is below: New York, NY (February 6, 2014) – MSG Network will send Rangers fans into the NHL’s Olympic break with ...

Balance the key to Lundqvist’s resurgence

Any excuse to show the Pinstripe pads. Despite being Ben Scrivens’d (again) last night, the Rangers have been on quite a roll for past six weeks or so.  Most will point to the terrible 5-3 loss to the Islanders on December 20th as the game that proved to be a turning point for the season.  At that time, the Rangers were struggling to break .500, playing downright terrible defense...

Game 58: Avoid the trap game against the Oilers, make it five in a row

Nostalgia time! (Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via Getty Images) The Rangers enter tonight’s game on a four game win streak. Edmonton is a bottom feeder again. Pittsburgh is tomorrow. Naturally, this is a trap game. The Rangers are at risk of looking ahead to their big divisional matchup. Problem is the Oilers are very skilled and can take advantage of that. Their goaltending got a...

Quick shootout win wrap up, plus some other tidbits from yesterday’s deadline

I apologize for no goal breakdown today. After a long day of traveling, I just crashed as soon as I got home. I have a long day today as well, so I made the executive decision to get some rest instead of staying up another two hours to do the breakdown. I have a feeling you guys will survive though. Anyway, here are some quick thoughts from the box score and highlights of the game...

Goal breakdown: Rangers vs. Oilers

So close Although the Rangers won the puck possession game with 60 even strength Corsi events (shots+missed shots+attempts blocked) to Edmonton’s 46, they just couldn’t find a way to win. The Rangers also had way too many giveaways — 15 to be exact — to a team they should have had a better time managing the puck against. On the positive side, Captain Callahan had another...

RECAP: Game 58. Rangers beat Pens 4-3 in shootout

Brad Richards and his unhumanly white teeth stood at center ice in the shootout with the opportunity to send his hot Rangers team into the Olympic break with a huge win in CONSOL Energy Center, where the visiting team simply doesn't win too often. With a thud from the net's mike, Richards had powerbombed Fleury, and the game was over. While the Olympic break is coming...

Rangers beat Penguins 4-3 in shootout

Brad Richards and Mats Zuccarello scored in a shootout, and the New York Rangers beat Pittsburgh 4-3 on Friday night to hand the Penguins a rare loss in the tiebreaker. Benoit Pouliot scored twice in regulation for the Rangers, who bounced back from a home loss to Edmonton the night before and won for the fifth time in six games. The Penguins had won all four of their previous...

Rangers down Penguins, 4-3, in shootout

The Olympic break should bring an ever-so-brief pause to the Ryan Callahan rumor mill. But despite the NHL roster freeze that went into effect Friday afternoon, without the team making a move, there are still many questions facing the Rangers when they resume play on Feb. 27. “We’re progressing,” coach Alain Vigneault said. “Our intentions are getting into the playoffs....

QUICK CAP: Send off to Sochi. Rangers beat Pens in a shootout

                                The Rangers probably hate to see the Olympic break more than anyone right now. They rose up and beat the Penguins in a shootout in the last game before the Sochi break. Brad Richards with the game winner.  Overall, the Rangers appear to be a lot stronger than they...

Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 58: New York Rangers

Game 59 at Pittsburgh: Head into the break strong

Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images Yea, the Rangers fell victim to the trap game last night against Edmonton. It happens. The more important thing here is that they played their stinker against a non-conference team. If there’s a silver lining, that’s it. The Rangers wrap up the pre-Olympics schedule in Pittsburgh tonight, taking on the division leading Penguins. The Pens...
