The New York Rangers got immediate results for their late-season overhaul.Newcomers Derick Brassard, Ryane Clowe and John Moore combined to score four goals and four assists as the Rangers blasted the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1.Those fellows had no time to get acclimated to coach John Tortorella or his system. They just went out and tore up the first-place Penguins on the ice.“Throws coaching right out the window, huh?” Tortorella quipped afterward.The hulking Clowe didn’t score a goal all season for the San Jose Sharks. Then he scored twice during his remarkable debut for the Rangers.“It feels good to get the monkey off the back overall,” Clowe told the New York Post. “I don’t know if it was the no sleep, but there was no pressure because you’re just going out there and playing free. Overall, the guys looked pretty loose and it was good.”The roster changes seemed to spark the Rangers, who have sputtered all season to Tortorella’s chagrin. Perhaps getting rid of slumping winger Marian ...

… Ryane Clowe said he always wanted to wear this hat after seeing it on 24/7.  Well Ryane, in only your first game as a New York Ranger your wish has come true! Amazing game from Clowe last night. 

Rangers win Clowe sweepstakes

The New York Rangers have acquired forward Ryane Clowe from the San Jose Sharks for three draft picks. The teams announced the deal Tuesday night.

Rangers acquire Ryane Clowe from Sharks

The wheels of the trade deadline continued to churn on Tuesday, as the San Jose Sharks sent winger Ryane Clowe to the New York Rangers in exchange for draft picks. Two of the picks are the Blueshirts second and third-round picks in this upcoming draft, while the Sharks can receive New York’s 2014 second-round pick if Clowe re-signs or the Rangers win two playoff rounds. If neither...

My two cents on the deadline deals

  Bruce Bennett/Getty Images Wednesday was a big day in Rangerland.  As we all know by now, the Blueshirts acquired Ryane Clowe for three draft picks and traded oft-maligned sniper Marian Gaborik to the Blue Jackets for Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett, and John Moore (with misc. non-prospects and a late draft pick thrown in).  Yesterday, Chris did a fantastic job adding some perspective...

Could Clowe Ask for EIGHT Year Extension?; Gabby Skates With Anisimov & Prospal

Earlier today, Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy retweeted this regarding the battle between the Rangers and the Canucks for Ryane Clowe's services... Canucks considered Clowe's salary demands which were 8 years 34 mill according to Botch. #wow — Taj (@taj1944) April 4, 2013 "Botch" is Jason Botchford who is the Canucks beat writer at the Vancouver...

Try doing your job coach

John Tortorella (New York Rangers) There are several good reasons why I only like reading Andrew Gross who writes the blog "Ranger Rants" for my coverage of the New York Rangers. The most important one is with Andrew you can always count on a level headed objective report win or lose as Andrew breaks the game/Rangers down intelligently. That said basically the only...

Trade Deadline Open Thread

The trade deadline is today at 3pm, and the Rangers have already been active. They’ve acquired Ryane Clowe for draft picks, and are rumored to be in on Ryan O’Byrne, a right handed defenseman form Colorado. Jamie McBain was a name rumored to be available, but with Joni Pitkanen getting hurt, it’s unlikely the Canes move him. Use this as your open thread to discuss the deadline...

A Second Chance For Derick Brassard

Nik Zherdev. Nikita Filatov. Gilbert Brule. These are just a few of the first round draft picks who were supposed to come to Columbus and turn the team into a competitive force in the Western Conference. Those three, along with many others, failed to match the expectations and succeed with the Blue Jackets. We can now also add Derick Brassard to that list.  Drafted sixth overall...

Rangers assign J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider to the CT Whale

According to the AHL website, the Rangers have sent J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider to the CT Whale.  Coach John Tortorella expressed concern that the magnitude of the virtual playoff games the Blueshirts are playing right now might be too much for the two, so these transactions aren’t a surprise. The moves clear over $2 million in cap space and ensure that both Miller and Kreider...

Raffi Torres To San Jose For Draft Pick by   Steven Ellis

After trading Ryane Clowe to the New York Rangers yesterday, the Sharks have bolstered their strength by adding Raffi torres for a 2013 third rounder. On July 1, 2011, Torres signed a two-year contract worth $3.5 million with the Phoenix Coyotes. He recorded his first goal nearly a month into the 2011–12 season, in a 3–2 shootout loss [...]

RECAP: Starting from the bottom. PENS LOSE.

We're huge fans of the Pens looking like ass right now. It was bound to happen when the streak ended. This is all happening at the best time possible, too. The Pens will be playing the 7 or 8 seed in the first round. Those two seeds will have hit some kind of stride by that time in order to battle through the logjam at the bottom of the East. So, let the Pens figure some ***...

Eklund: Brassard: Ready to Break Loose in the Big Apple?

One of the gutsiest trades made at the trade deadline, not just this year but in quite a few years, was the blockbuster swap between the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets that sent Marian Gaborik and two minor league defensemen to Columbus in exchange for center Derrick Brassard, right wing Derek Dorsett, defenseman John Moore and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft. ...
