(Editor’s note: Is it really 20 years since this? October 4, 1991: Mark Messier, traded to NY Rangers by Edmonton with future considerations (Jeff Beukeboom for David Shaw, November 12, 1991) for Bernie Nicholls, Steven Rice and Louie DeBrusk and a big, giant bag of cash, October 4, 1991.)
The Rangers wrapped up their 2011 preseason campaign with an ugly 8-4 loss over EV Zug at raucous Bossard Arena in Zug, Switzerland. The tilt ended a four-game in five-day through four countries road trip for the Red, White and Blueshirts.
1) A wild first period saw six tallies. Zug jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead off a PPG goal by Pirnes and a real bad softie allowed by Biron from a long high shot by Camichel. However, Captain Cally cut the lead to 2-1 with a tip in goal from Dubinsky. Then, the four-forward PP reared its ugly head when former NHL first-rounder Josh Holden scored a SHG on a move around Richards. The Rangers fought back scoring twice in the final 1:12 with goals ...

Larry Brooks of the NYPost tweeted and TSN is reporting that the New York Rangers will put Sean Avery on waivers at noon today. There is some shock to this as Christensen did little if anything to "win" the final roster spot, but the fact that Avery is off the team should not be all that shocking. Avery had the bigger cap hit and issues with the coaching staff trusting...
MSG Network has been making some great commercials leading up to the 2011-12 season for the New York Rangers, but this one below trumps them all. If this doesn't get you pumped for Friday's game against the L.A. Kings, then I'm not sure what will.

Sean Avery Assigned to Connecticut; Marc Staal Placed on IR
New York, October 5, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Tim Erixon has been recalled from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL), while forward Sean Avery has been assigned to Connecticut...
The Rangers defense did not look good against Zug – an understatement. It hasn’t looked particularly good throughout the European tour in all honesty. So much of that has to do with the absence of Marc Staal which will now stretch in to the regular season. It also has to do with Mike Sauer of course. The Rangers’ defense is patched up and will be for a little while longer and...
The Rangers announced Monday that Marc Staal will not join the team in Europe for the first two games of the season as he continues to recover from post-concussion syndrome. For those that have been reading me this season and/or just following the news on Staal, this decision comes as little surprise. For now, the Rangers are not placing Staal on injured reserve, though that could...

When Sean Avery came to the Rangers during the 2006–2007 season, the general feeling was that this transaction was the missing piece to a seemingly lifeless team. There was no doubt the Rangers lacked the energy and spark required to make the step to that next level. And despite his questionable history, GM Glen Sather...
