Found July 30, 2012 on Ranger Nation:
PLAYERS: Glen Sather
TEAMS: New York Rangers
One of the hardest parts of writing is when you get a concept you really like, really want to write about but you can’t quite figure out how to go about executing the piece. The topic of Glen Sather has been that way for the last few weeks for me. See, I’ve started to reconsider [...]

Recap: Glen Sather Gets Nash-ty

In a move that was months in the making, Glen Sather waited out the ridiculous demands of Columbus GM Scott Howson, and finally got his man. The deal finally consummated saw fan favorites Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov sent to Columbus and Rick Nash finally landing on Broadway. It had been a quiet offseason for [...]

Henrik Lundqvist Camp

This info was sent to me last week. Since I was moving this past weekend, I could not get to posting it until now. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is hosting a new youth instructional hockey camp in the New York area, and it sounds like a great event. Join New York Rangers goaltender and 2012 Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist for hockey instruction and fun at the 2012 Henrik...

Rangers Tribune Writing Opportunity Update

So well over a week ago I posted here on The Rangers Tribune that I was looking to bulk up the staff on the blog for the upcoming season, and over the course of the next few days received tons of interest from many of you in regard to a writing position. I thought it would only be fair to give everyone an update on the status of everything there, so here it goes; - If you showed...

What Will the Rangers Lines Look Like Next Season?

I understand this is as big an exercise in futility as there is, as figuring out a Rubix Cube while intoxicated is easier than determining line combinations with John Tortorella's team.However, it's a slow day in Ranger land and a healthy debate never hurts. Listed below are what I think could realistically be line combos heading into next season. Bear in mind, this excludes...

Rick Nash Could Be The Difference Maker For The Rangers

from Steve Zipay of Newsday, Now 28, Nash, a distinguished winger with a resume that includes five All-Star appearances, an Olympic gold medal and seven seasons of between 30 and 41 goals, is a Blueshirt, acquired in the hope that he can be the missing piece for a gritty team that advanced to the Eastern Conference finals last season. “This changes the complexion of our team,”...

A 1-2 Punch That is Not Guaranteed

In the hockey world, there have been several instances where two players display great chemistry together. Last season, the New York Rangers had hoped for that with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik. Unfortunately, while they did play well together at times, they certainly did not do so on a consistent basis. While each player had solid seasons last year, they did so on different...

This defense doesn't rest

(Blueshirts United) While the New York Rangers have questions to still answer regarding their forwards; the defense remains one of the team's biggest strengths. An interesting mix of players featuring 3 former 1st rounders, a 2nd, a 7th and 2 undrafted players. You have to like that the Ranger defense has 6 players 25 years old or younger (Girardi is the oldest at 28)....

Debunking the Shane Doan asking price

With Rick Nash in the mix, there appears to be only one more target for the Rangers, and that is Shane Doan. Adding Doan to the club would solidify the Rangers depth at forward, making them true Stanley Cup contenders, and possibly the Cup favorites come October. Since the Phoenix ownership situation is still up in the air, Doan has already begun shopping his services, which included...

What Happens to Rangers Line-up With Doan on Board?

In a piece on possible Shane Doan landing spots at NHL.com, Dan Rosen discusses how the Coyotes captain would fit in on the Rangers..."If Doan signs with New York, he'd likely push Hagelin out of the top six and force Nash to play on the left side, where Nash says he is comfortable.Until Gaborik returns, the Rangers could field a top line of Nash with Brad Richards and Doan...

New York Rangers: Dan Boyle, a Trade Target?

With acquisition of star forward Rick Nash, it appears the Rangers’ forward group is set, although there are reports that Sather is trying to coax Coyotes’ captain Shane Doan to sign with the Rangers. That appears to be a longshot, however, with reports that Doan is looking for a 4 year deal within the range of $24M-$30M. With that in mind, the Rangers are still looking to acquire...

Rangers to Make Real Play for Thornton?

Kevin Paul Dupont at the Boston Globe feels now that Rick Nash is a Ranger, not to be surprised to see the Blueshirts make a real play for the Sharks' Joe Thornton.Dupont adds that Nash and Thornton were magic together in Davos, Switzerland, during the last lockout, and have paired like hand and glove in the Olympics for Team Canada.Thornton has a no movement clause in his contract...

Nash Overrated? Are You Serious?

Steve Zipay at Newsday spoke with former Columbus Blue Jacket GM Doug McLean about what type of player the Rangers are getting in Rick Nash..."Where do you find a 6-4, 235-pound guy with hands, who can skate, is entering his prime, with limited miles on him -- although every night he was the No. 1 focus, tightly checked, man-on-man, because teams knew if you shut down Rick Nash...

Aaron Musick: Trade market: who would you add?

Now that August is almost upon us, the trade market, such as it is, is starting to heat up. Shane Doan has yet to sign but outside of him, there's not much on the open market. Especially now that Rick Nash has been shipped off to the New York Rangers, that leaves a few names on the trade market that could change the balence of power in either conference. Biggest among them...
