Per Larry Brooks, there is good news on the Marc Staal injury front. Staal has been cleared for “light physical activity”, which is a step in the right direction for his overall healing process.

Brad Richards Meeting Expectations So Far

We are nearing the end of the first quarter of the 2011-12 hockey season, and granted the Rangers still have to face the Montreal Canadiens, Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins in the coming weeks before the quarter closes, but I think it's safe to say that, so far, this season has been a success for the Blueshirts after their turnaround.

Post-Practice Interviews: Derek Stepan & Steve Eminger

… Derek Stepan has been a total beast through this 7 game winning streak. Steve Eminger shows flashes of being a solid 3rd pairing d-man than the inconsistency shines through, but so far he has done a decent job. I wonder who will be the first to go when Anton Stralman is ready to play, [...]

Voros Called Rangers For PTO Opportunity With Whale

Yesterday it was reported that Aaron Voros would be signing a Professional Try-Out (PTO) with the Connecticut Whale (AHL).  That officially happened this morning.  Paul Doyle of the Hartford Courant is reporting that it was Voros who called Rangers GM Glen Sather to ask for the chance and not the Rangers reaching out to the 30-year-old forward.  Classy move by Sather and the Rangers...

Reviewing the 2006 Draft

Drafts are a tricky beast. It is almost impossible to really evaluate how a team did on draft day, or for several years following the draft. The general rule of thumb is to wait three or four years before really digging down and seeing how a team performed in the draft.
