New York Rangers
St. Louis Blues
It’s shaping up to be a crazy day around the NHL. The Rangers don’t have first- or second-round picks thanks to trades for Rick Nash and Ryane Clowe, but they do hold three picks in the third round (#65, #75 and #80 overall). It’s quite possible that New York will attempt to package a couple of those picks to move up into the second round, but don’t hold your breath on the Blueshirts getting into the first.
The rumor mill is really churning today, too. Already New York has dealt Benn Ferriero and a 2014 sixth-round pick to Minnesota for D Justin Falk, but there could be more moves ahead. Given New York’s cap issues, don’t expect them to be in on the big fish. But there sure are a lot of big names being discussed, including: Tyler Seguin, Cory Schneider, Evander Kane, Alex Edler, Tyler Myers, Kris Letang, Tomas Fleischmann, David Perron, Dave Bolland, Braydon Coburn, Cal Clutterbuck and seemingly dozens of others.
Teams have three minutes to make each selection and also have five, five-minute timeouts throughout the day. Unless the Rangers move up, they probably won’t be picking until late this evening, but we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Join us after the jump for updates.
3:01 – The Penguins have traded LW Tyler Kennedy to San Jose for the 50th overall pick.
3:02 – Good detective work by The NY Rangers Blog translating Sweden’s Expressen that states Ulf Samuelsson will join the Rangers as an assistant coach and handle the defense and penalty kill. Earlier today, Renaud Lavoie reiterated that Benoit Allaire will remain with the Rangers as goalie coach.
3:08 – The draft is officially underway and commissioner Gary Bettman is really hearing it from the crowd at the Prudential Center.
3:09 – The Avalanche kick things off by selecting F Nathan MacKinnon. The Avalanche said they would pass on D Seth Jones repeatedly over the last two weeks, but I don’t understand it. Jones has the potential to be a Hall of Famer, was raised in Denver and has unlimited marketing potential. Plus, Colorado has a host of good young forwards and basically nothing on defense. Head scratching start to the Joe Sakic/Patrick Roy regime in Colorado.
3:17 – Florida passes on Jones as well and takes Finnish C Alexander Barkov.
3:21 – Jones’ drop continues as Tampa Bay selects MacKinnon’s teammate, F Jonathan Drouin.
3:27 – Nashville GM David Poile does cartwheels up to the podium and selects Jones, another stud defenseman to pair with Shea Weber.
3:33 – Carolina drafts Swedish C Elias Lindholm.

In a minor trade, the Rangers have sent forward Kris Newbury to Philadelphia for left-handed defenseman Danny Syrvet. Syvret, who was a teammate of Dan Girardi’s with London in the OHL, is essentially the defensive version of Newbury. Both players are solid at the AHL level, but neither can gain solid footing in the NHL. They are your quintessential AAAA players.
Newbury was never...
With the Rangers trading away this year's first and second round picks in the Rick Nash & Ryane Clowe trades respectively, Gordie Clark and his crew are going to be twiddling their thumbs for a long time before finally using the first of the Blueshirts three third round picks during tomorrow's draft.
But Clark still has a game plan going into the day (via Blueshirts...
Right from the horse’s mouth, here’s the official press release from your New York Rangers. 2013 RANGERS PROSPECT DEVELOPMENT CAMP NEW YORK, June 30, 2013 –New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club will hold the 2013 Prospect Development Camp, Monday, July 1st – Friday, July 5th, [...]
The Rangers looked like they were going to make a serious run at contending for a Stanley Cup until they ran into Boston in the Eastern semis. Henrik Lundqvist led the team from between the pipes but a lack of offense and a poor power play kept the Rangers from going deeper into the playoffs. Let’s take a look back at the Broadway Blueshirts.
Team Name:New York Rangers
The decision not to buyout Brad Richards has been made, so there's really no sense in getting worked up about it anymore. We all know the huge risk Glen Sather took and we just have to pray the Rangers alternate captain can bounce back while staying healthy.
And it looks like he's already focusing on next season as Pierre LeBrun at ESPN.com reports that Richards has been...
The New York Rangers could have reset the team’s finances by buying out Brad Richards, creating $6.67 million in annual cap room for seven years. The team could have also escaped a potential compliance penalty that looms in case of Richards’ early retirement.But general manager Glen Sather opted to stay the course with Richards, betting that a coaching change will revive him...
Last night was a different one for the New York Rangers. You have to go back to 2002 to find the last time the team did not hold a first round pick, but never, since the NHL Entry Draft came into existence, have the Rangers been without both a first and a second round pick. Nonetheless, Rangers Director of Player Personnel Gordie Clark has proven time and time again that NHL players...
Happy Draft Day. The Rangers have five picks this year: three in the third round , a fourth rounder, and a sixth rounder. Gordie Clark discussed what the Rangers will be looking to draft on the Rangers website, and noted that the Rangers are likely to make picks to fill an organizational need, as opposed to taking the best player available. Clark elaborated a bit further and said...
Former Rangers defenseman Ulf Samuelsson is set to become an assistant coach under Alain Vigneault for the New York Rangers, Swedish news source Expressen reports. Samuelsson spent four seasons with the Rangers, becoming a fan favorite due to his physical play and tendency to play with his heart on his sleeve. Samuelsson was previously an assistant for the Hartford Wolfpack during...
With their second of three third-round picks, the Rangers took Russian LW Pavel Buchnevich.
Full scouting report to come…
I have to hand it to some people as the New York Rangers haven't made a single pick in the 2013 NHL Draft but already the draft has been declared a bust. Sorry but you really do need to wait a few years before you can actually say that.
I suppose those angry at Glen Sather for firing John Tortorella or are mad at him for hiring Alain Vigneault or just dislike...
The New York Rangers have traded Kris Newbury to the Philadelphia Flyers for Danny Syvret. Newbury was drafted by San Jose in the fifth round (139th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, however he would start his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, playing three short stints with the club between 2006 and 2009. On July 7, 2009, Newbury was signed [...]
In the first move of the day, the Rangers have acquired defenseman Justin Falk from Minnesota in exchange for Benn Ferriero and a 6th round pick in 2014. Falk, a left handed shot, had a line of 0-3-3 in 36 games this past season, with a -9 rating and 40 PIMs. Falk isn’t terrible on the metrics side of things, with a 2.0 RCorsi (-1.28 CorsiON), a -0.694 Corsi Rel QoC, and 47.9%...
This news broke yesterday, courtesy of Alex Nunn and his translation abilities (via this Swedish website), but we wanted to keep the focus on the draft. Former Ranger defenseman Ulf Samuelsson will be re-joining the Rangers as an assistant coach, working with the defense and penalty kill. Ulfie has spent the past two seasons coaching Modo in the SHL (renamed from the SEL).
The Columbus Blue Jackets, one of the ‘feel good’ stories of this lockout-shortened National Hockey League (NHL) will be one of the most intriguing teams to watch at this Sunday’s NHL Entry Draft. As a result of trading former ‘face of the franchise’ player, Rick Nash to the New York Rangers as well as trading the disgruntled Jeff Carter to the Los Angeles Kings, along...
