Hello Hockey I have missed you

Noreau (NYR) The 2012-2013 New York Ranger prospect season got underway on Friday evening when Samuel Noreau (2011 5th) made his season debut for his Baie-Comeau Drakkar as the Drakkar defeated the Chicoutimi Saguenéens 6-1 in their preseason home opener.

Torts: Nash Is The Right Fit

John Tortorella spoke with Jim Cerny at Blueshirts United about the Rich Nash acquisition..."We did some homework on Nash---(Brad Richards) knows him a little bit, I talked to other players in the league and to coaches that have coached him---and it is the right fit. And it is the right time of his career to be here. I think he has the hunger to get there and become that go...

Jan Levine: MDZ and Rangers Far Apart, Sauer Not Close to Returning

Larry Brooks, in his final Slap Shot column of the summer, had two vignettes about the Rangers, neither of which was particularly good news. I will quote both pieces with my view below in italics as we step away from Labor negotiations for a minute or two.

Time to go camping

J.T. Miller (Plymouth Whalers) I am not going to fib about it but boy am I glad the New York Ranger prospects playing in the Canadian Junior are starting to report to their junior teams for training camp. At the same time it is also kind of sad too because while the kids will be playing, the adults will be once again risking damage to the sport if the NHL once again has a labor...

Everyone Loses

(Center Ice) So there won't be any New York Ranger prospects playing at this year's Traverse City prospect tournament now that it's been officially canceled. It was actually canceled back in May when the NHL served their 120 day notice on the NHLPA. The reason I can say that is because that was also the same day when the Vancouver Canucks were forced to cancel their...
