Found July 01, 2012 on Ranger Nation:
The Rangers lose one of their depth forwards as John Mitchell has signed with the Colorado Avalanche. Mitchell played some big minutes for the Rangers and was a very effective 3rd and 4th line forward but he is someone that the Rangers could replace with the guys out on the open market. Konopka, Knuble, this free [...]

Rangers Sign Micheal Haley (UPDATE: Prust Goes to MTL)

#NYR Rangers have signed former #Isles tough guy Micheal Haley to two-year deal — Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN) July 1, 2012 I really like Haley's toughness and swagger, as did Isles fans, but this signing begs the question: How many tough guys do the Rangers need on the roster? Rupp, Bickel, Asham and now Haley are all signed to contracts.  GM Glen Sather needs...

Yet another signing making Sather look good.

Right before free agency opens up another desperate general manager on another desperate team has once again made Glen Sather look good. While there’s no doubting the Flames acquisition of Dennis Wideman was a solid move, the contract given to him by Jay Feaster smacks of desperation and makes Ranger contracts like Marc Staal’s and in particular Dan Girardi’s look like excellent...

Rangers Sign Aaron Asham

Asham completes his tour of Atlantic Division, 2 yrs $1M per with Rangers.— Larry Brooks(@NYP_Brooksie) July 1, 2012 Two reasons I'm not a big fan of this signing: - It likely means Brandon Prust is officially not re-signing with the Rangers. They essentially fill the same roll in terms of being an enforcer, but Prust is cleaner, more respected and is more offensively capable...

Needs Must Still Be Fulfilled

The New York Rangers may have made three moves over the course of Sunday's opening of free agency in the NHL, but those three moves made them little progress in respect to what is needed by this club for the next season. The re-signing of Stu Bickel and additions of Arron Asham and Micheal Haley bring a degree of toughness to the team that they lost to the Montreal Canadiens...

UFA of the Day: Brandon Prust

Today on this not so gorgeous Saturday I battle what is either the start of a cold, or a hangover. But either way, here is today’s UFA of the Day. It addresses something I haven’t written about yet. Toughness. Here is Brandon Prust in today’s UFA of the Day. Name: Brandon Prust Age: 27 Size: 6’2″, 192 Lbs Why the Canucks might want him: Toughness. If you want to beef up...

What To Expect From The Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, It’s difficult to determine just who Sather might target over the next 48 hours. There is no credible right defenseman on the market to fill the second-pair hole on defense that remains wide open after University of Wisconsin free agent Justin Schultz’s decision yesterday to sign with the Oilers. Rather than throw Monopoly money at marginal...

New York Rangers newest member Tracy Morgan

This is what it would be like if Tracy Morgan joined the New York Rangers.  Morgan appeared in this 24/7 style skit at the 2012 NHL Awards.  Check it out:

Asham goes to the Rangers

Via Josh Yohe: The New York Rangers give Arron Asham two years, $2 million. — Josh Yohe (@JoshYohe_Trib) July 1, 2012   Asham was solid for the Pens, but struggled with some injuries last season. He also had that cheap shot on Schenn which was no good for anyone. He'll be remembered for this crushing right hand on Jay Beagle. He'll def make...

Rangers Out of Running for Schultz

Hearing NYR are out of running for Justin Schultz. Not going to NYC. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 30, 2012

Rangers sign Asham; re-sign Bickel

The New York Rangers have added grit and experience to their lineup by reaching a deal with forward Arron Asham on the first day of NHL free agency. A 13-season NHL veteran, Asham spent the past two years with Pittsburgh. He had five goals and 11 assists in 64 games last season. Overall, he has 92 goals and 206 points in 756 career games split between five teams. Asham broke into...
