Almost all of the Rangers key prospects were in action last night, and almost all of them failed to make a dent on the score sheet. In fact, only Boo Nieves (2nd, 2012) of Michigan notched any sort of point, with two assists in Michigan’s 6-3 win over Western Michigan in the CCHA. The other 12 prospects in action were all left scoreless.

Today in his weekly Slap Shots column, Larry Brooks of the New York Post examines Brad Richards' slow start to the season and weighs the pros and cons of using a amnesty buyout on the Blueshirts alternate captain.
Obviously, there's every chance it's just a slump and not necessarily the decline of Richards' skills. Brooks acknowledges this by calling his article...
There was a lot going on today in Rangerland, and there may be some significant roster changes for tonight’s game. Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers are dealing with the following injuries/lineup changes:
Arron Asham is out with back spasms. Christian Thomas has been recalled to take his roster spot.
To make room for Thomas, Rick Nash has been placed on IR, retroactive to last Saturday...
The Bell Centre has been the Rangers "House of Horrors" the last few years, but last night it was taken to a whole new level.
Not only were the Rangers outplayed, they sustained injuries to key players that may have literally ended any chance the Rangers have of making the playoffs.
The first was to Ryan McDonagh, who according to Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record...
One thing I’ve learned in my years as a Rangers fan is that many of my peers are, shall we say passionate, about their team. This passion tends to lead many of my fellow Blue Shirt aficionados to overreact to everything from a hard-fought loss to a victory in a poorly played game. Come on, [...]
Former All Star Alfredsson would be a nice fit in NY – depending on cost
The Rangers need to get more offense and Chris Kreider needs serious minutes; not just as an injury fill-in. Those two issues, the inconsistent play of J.T. Miller, and the underwhelming performances of Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik are why the Rangers may want to consider speaking to Ottawa about veteran...
The longer this season goes, the more I've been reminding my fellow Wings fans that the salary cap is going down from $70.2 million to $64.3 million this summer. It's probably going to stay at that level for some time as the NHLPA's share of the NHL's hockey-related revenues drops to 50% and stays there.
As such, even Detroit's $18.3 million in cap space, per...
One of the emerging themes in this current slump for the Rangers is the concept of "team toughness." More specifically, that this team lacks it. Everyone is going to have a different definition of the term, but for me "team toughness" equates the not simply fighting but a general philosophy. It encompasses a number of aspects of the game: sure, sticking up for...
NEW YORK, February 25, 2013 –New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned forward Christian Thomas to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Thomas, 20, was credited with three hits and registered two shots on goal in 12:46 of ice time while making his NHL debut on Saturday at Montreal. He returns...
In a microcosm of the Rangers lack of toughness, not a single Rangers player responded to Marty Biron getting run twice during last night's 3-0 to Montreal. Unless you want to count Brian Boyle's token yell a few Canadiens players after the second one.
However, after the game it was Biron who addressed the Rangers hardness issues...
Let me highlight the important...

Tonight the Rangers are in Montreal for a rematch with the Canadiens, but are doing so extremely shorthanded. The Blueshirts will be without Rick Nash (unknown), Darroll Powe (concussion), Arron Asham (back spasms), and may be without Michael Del Zotto (lower body) and Marc Staal (flu). Christian Thomas was called up and will play tonight...
I couldn't be more excited to announce that The New York Rangers Blog has partnered up with Rangers apparel company We Bleed Blue.
You may have already noticed the new ad on the blog, but the relationship doesn't end there.
I will be featuring various pieces of We Bleed Blue merchandise on the blog as well as coordinating numerous contests and viewing parties with...
Injuries are becoming a major concern for the New York Rangers.
The New York Rangers losing ways in Montreal continued last night when they were shutout 3-0, but they lost more than just the game. Playing with an already depleted line up, the Rangers lost Ryan McDonagh in the 2nd period after he took a high, hard hit into the glass by Max Pacioretty. In the final minute of the game...
Not sure how it's possible for a team to be dependent on a player who's scored just three goals in 14 games this season, but that's just what's happened to the Rangers.
In the three games since Rick Nash was injured, Rangers forwards have scored exactly one goal (Ryan Callahan). That's right, in the last nine periods, one goal from Rangers forwards. Just let...
More than a quarter past the season already, this is something that the New York Rangers need to do if they want to get into the postseason.
Tonight, the Blueshirts are in Montreal to take on the Canadiens. These two clubs met on Tuesday night in what was more of a chess match than a hockey game and the Canadiens escaped Madison Square Garden with a 3-1 victory.
There is no doubt...
Lars Eller had a great response to John Tortorella's claim that Tuesday's game against the Canadiens was a boring one between two bad teams, with the Rangers being worse. Eller told a couple of reporters after Saturday's game, and quite candidly: "We love to piss that guy off."
"It's not a coincidence after two games like that. They were bad because...
