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...

In addition, defenseman Marc Staal has been placed on injured reserve. Erixon, 20, registered two assists with a [...]

The New York Rangers, desperate for defensive help after putting Marc Staal on IR, claimed defenseman Jeff Woywitka off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens. Woywitka, 28, played 63 games with the Dallas Stars last season, putting up 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in those 63 games and a +5 rating. Woywitka then signed as a UFA with the Montreal Canadiens over the summer to...
Keys to the Rangers season
1) Marian Gaborik. He has one of the top playmaking centers in the NHL now, with Brad Richards. The Rangers must get around 40 goals, or more, from Gaborik, who would also then make a previously pathetic power play go if he’s back on his game. So in many ways, this key is about Richards, as well.
2) Health. The Rangers had a bunch of injuries to key...
The New York Rangers have their opening day lineup set for when they take on the Los Angeles Kings on Friday afternoon in Sweden, and as expected, it doesn’t include Sean Avery, who was reassigned to the AHL’s Connecticut Whale after failing to make the team out of training camp,… read more.
The New York Rangers have placed 24-year-old defenseman Marc Staal on injured reserve, the team announced.
The New York Rangers have re-initiated talks with free agent defensemen and former Ranger Paul Mara, according to the New York Post.

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...

MINNEAPOLIS — A Minnesota judge threw out a felony charge against the brother of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard on Thursday, saying the facts didn’t support the accusation in the player’s overdose death earlier this year.
Aaron Boogard, 24, was accused of giving his brother an oxycodone pill at the...
The Rangers continued to shuffle the deck Thursday, claiming 28-year-old defenseman Jeff Woywitka off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens and assigning would-be rookie Stu Bickel to their AHL affiliate.
If the Los Angeles Kings think Henrik Lundqvist will be off his game at home in Sweden when the New York Rangers begin the NHL season, they could be sorely mistaken.
