Take this for what you will. The New York Post's Larry Brooks suggests that the Edmonton Oilers and New York Rangers may be pursuing a trade because the Rangers have come up short on offense minus the concussed Rick Nash:
The Oilers dispatched a scouting expedition featuring their president of hockey operations Kevin Lowe, general manager Craig MacTavish and special adviser Mark Messier to the Garden on Monday for the Rangers’ 2-1 defeat to the Ducks.
Edmonton, which has opened 3-10-2 under first-year coach Dallas Eakins, is believed to be accepting offers for veteran winger Ales Hemsky while also exploring the market for second-year winger Nail Yakupov, the first overall selection in the 2012 Entry Draft.
Even if interested in Hemsky, the Blueshirts would have to maneuver to get under the cap in order to accommodate the 30-year-old. Hemsky is on the final year of a contract worth a $5 million cap charge and is eligible for unrestricted free agency in July.
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s no secret, the biggest problem the Rangers have had the last several seasons is the lack of a respectable power play. Not since the 2009-10 season have the Blueshirts finished in the top half of the league in PP conversions, and not since the 1998-99 season have the Rangers had a top 5 power play. Although it’s still a bit early to call our current power play elite, or...
John Shannon, Nick Kypreos and Chris Johnston discuss a potential trade of Edmonton Oilers forward Nail Yakupov to the New York Rangers, concussion concerns for Rangers forward Rick Nash and much more.
The more includes the health of Rinne, Gaborik contract and other topics. Worth your time to watch.
This might be our new favorite video of the young NHL season. Ryan McDonagh hitting Corey Perry into the New York bench was humorous enough as is, but the play reached epic proportions when it happened twice on the same shift. It's fairly rare a player is hit over the boards and into the bench, but the odds of it happening twice in a little under 15 seconds is insanity. ...
November 6th, 1993: Colisee de Quebec (Quebec Coliseum), Quebec City, Quebec: The Rangers took their three game winning streak up to Canada to take on the Quebec Nordiques for the second time on the young season. On October 10th at Madison Square Garden, the Rangers outlasted the Nordiques in a 6-4 goal fest, scoring all of their goals […]
The losses are eating away at Sam Gagner and his busted jaw and the taste is far from being a juicy tenderloin. It’s more like a five-day old egg sandwich instead.
He’s been back two games and being a part of 4-0 and 5-0 Edmonton Oilers’ drubbings at Rexall Place at the hands of Toronto and Detroit sting a whole lot worse than his own personal numbers, which are certainly...
from the NHLPA,
TORONTO (November 5, 2013) – Jason Arnott, a veteran of 18 National Hockey League (NHL) seasons, a Stanley Cup champion, and a 12-time 20-goal scorer – including three seasons when he scored over 30 goals – officially announced his retirement from the NHL today.
Arnott played for six teams – Edmonton, New Jersey, Dallas, Nashville, Washington and...
The Anaheim Ducks and New York Rangers game got a bit chippy towards the end of the second period thanks to Ryan McDonagh checking Corey Perry into the Rangers’ bench area not once, but twice in a row. Not surprisingly the Rangers’ bench didn’t roll out the red welcome carpet for the Ducks’ Perry. Definitely not something you see every day.

Don’t expect Nail Yakupov to arrive on Broadway
As often happens in the Twitterverse and blogosphere, a pretty harmless tweet set off a frenzy among Rangers fans over the last 36 hours.
A few writers noted that Edmonton president of hockey operations Kevin Lowe, GM Craig MacTavish and special adviser Mark Messier(!) were in attendance for New York’s 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Monday...
New York Rangers’ forward Rick Nash remains out indefinitely with a concussion. He has not played since suffering the injury on October 8th and was placed on IR on October 14th.
This is the second suspected concussion for the Rangers’ power forward in the past 12 months, with the first one stemming from a Milan Lucic hit back in February. The most recent head injury happened...
The Broadway Blueshirts welcomed the Anaheim Ducks for a rematch at MSG, last time the Rangers faced the Ducks this season they were shut out in a humiliating 6-0 defeat. The Rangers are a different team from that road trip to hell, and captain Ryan Callahan is back on the team after being sidelined for […]
Longtime NHLer Jason Arnott has called it quits. Arnott had a long career in the NHL after being drafted back in 1993 by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round. He first suited up for the Oilers during the 1993-1994 season where he tallied 68 points in his rookie campaign. Fast forward to 2013 where Arnott has played for a [...]
