The Rangers were just eliminated Friday night and the free agency insanity has already begun with rumors all over the place today.And of course it starts with Mr. Nash, as Arthur Staple at Newsday says..."A package beginning with Brandon Dubinsky, defense prospect Dylan McIlrath and the 28th pick in the June 22 draft could be enough to entice the Blue Jackets to surrender Nash."...if the Blue Jackets would except that package, Sather better drive Dubinsky & McIlrath to Columbus himself. Having said that, after seeing Howson's (Columbus GM) huge request of Kreider, Stepan or Hagelin and McD or Del Zotto at the trade deadline, I doubt very much this would get it done.Staple adds that if Sather can't work out a deal with Columbus, he has the cap space to go after prized off-season free agent Zach Parise as well as King's Conference Final's hero Dustin Penner (7g, 10a)....it's obvious that Parise would fit in perfectly with the Rangers, but I'm conv...

The New York Rangers are holding break-up day this afternoon at their training center up in Greenburgh, and as usual, they are speaking with the media for one final time before departing their separate ways for the summer.
According to various media sources, several Rangers admitted to playing through injuries during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. One of those players was Brandon...
When it was over, a few moments after his team's season had come to an end, Rangers coach John Tortorella uttered six words that offered a glimpse into his psyche.
"I really thought we were coming," Tortorella said after Adam Henrique's Eastern Conference finals-clinching goal 63 seconds into overtime sent the Rangers home for the summer with a devastating, 3-2...
The New York Rangers had the best record in the Eastern Conference and reached the conference finals on the strength of a tough defense, great goaltending and a relentlessly rugged style.
What they lacked, and what ultimately led them to being ousted by the New Jersey Devils on Friday, was some more scoring to go with all that grit.
The Rangers finished the regular season ranked...
New York Rangers coach John Tortorella just doesn't like to answer Stan Fischler. But, he does think his team 'played with balls.' 1:10 mark of his post game presser following last night's game 6...

This one stings. It’s going to sting for a while. The Rangers were the best team in the Eastern Conference, but the best team does not always win. Even the best teams struggle with matchups, the best teams have clunkers, the best teams hit skids. The Rangers were barely playing above .500 hockey heading into the playoffs (11-9-1 in March/April), and played .500 hockey in the playoffs...
I have to apologize for this being a bit tardy. The loss to the Devils stung, and it took me a bit to write this objectively.
So here we are. It’s late May, and the Rangers playoff run has come to an end. No matter how much a bitter fan wants to spin it, this was a miraculous season. The Rangers simply were not supposed to be this good so early. I had them penciled in to make...

It is not exactly the way that the New York Rangers would like to see their off-season start but reports are indicating that Mats Zuccarello has either signed or will sign with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL.

Rangers coach John Tortorella isn't satisfied with the franchise's longest postseason run since 1997.
He says ''we still have quite a bit to learn as far as the desperation, when you get to this third round.''
New York's season ended Friday with a 3-2 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
It will take time...
I have no words. This season left me with the most optimism I’ve ever had. But this loss stings. A lot. I got nothing for you.
Actually. I have a “thank you.” I have a thank you to the New York Rangers. It’s been a long time since I’ve believed. This season ended with a less than desirable result, but I believe. I believe this team is destined for great things. I believe...
Here are your post-elimination interviews from the players and head coach John Tortorella following last night's 3-2 OT loss to the Devils in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Break-up day for the Rangers will be on Monday. Stay tuned for my season eulogy and a whole lot of individual...
Two previous series extended to seven games and two multi-goal comebacks in their final two games proved
to be too much for the Rangers in the end. The Rangers' season ended without their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals since their last
championship season in 1994, with Devils rookie Adam Henrique's scramble goal 63 seconds into overtime
sending the Rangers...
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record has these post game players quotes...Marc Staal..."sick, gross feeling in your stomach...It sucks."Henrik Lundqvist...“It’s just a horrible feeling. When it’s over, all the work you put in over the last couple of months, even the last eight months, it hurts.”Gross added that Ryan McDonagh looked the most devastated in the locker...
There were obviously numerous reasons the Rangers didn't advance to the Stanley Cup Finals this season, but to me the most glaring was their lack of offense, which Dave Lozo at NHL.com agrees with..."During the postseason, when every inch of ice around the net becomes prime real estate teams are willing to defend with their lives, the offense dried up. The Rangers averaged...
The New York Rangers lost to the New Jersey Devils by the score of 3-2 in overtime in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals matchup. The Devils win the series 4-2. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports....just sort of in shock right now. Really didn't think there was anyway the Rangers were going to lose tonight. Especially after they mirrored 1994 by...
If you are a New York Rangers’ fan, this is most likely what you are feeling regarding what happened to the team tonight.
The New Jersey Devils ended the team’s hope of getting to the Stanley Cup Final by beating the Blueshirts 3-2 in overtime on a goal by rookie Adam Henrique tonight at the Prudential Center. It is certainly disheartening considering the way the Rangers played...
