Found October 02, 2011 on Blue Seat Blogs:


NOTABLE NHLers: None, but they do have a Lubomir Visnovsky on their team, which made me do a double-take.



Defense: Brendan Bell, Stu Bickel, Michael Del Zotto, Steve Eminger, Dan Girardi, Ryan McDonagh


STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: After the third round of cuts, the Rangers are at just 25 players on their roster.  There are two positional battles remaining: the 13th forward and the last defenseman, so expect Sean Avery, Erik Christensen, Stu Bickel, and Brendan Bell to come out guns blazing.  For Christensen, Bell, and possible Avery, it could be their last real shot at an NHL club.

CRAZY THOUGHT:   Avery scores a goal.


PREDICTION: Rangers 5, Slovan 3.

The game is on at 11am on MSG, right before the football games, solid timing there.

Rangers remain unbeaten in Europe, best Bratislava

Artem Anisimov continued his fine preseason by scoring a goal as the New York Rangers remained undefeated on their European tour with a 4-1 triumph over HC Slovan Bratislava on Sunday in Bratislava, Slovakia. Mats Zuccarello scored on a 5-on-3 power play and Brian Boyle and Ryan McDonagh also tallied. The Rangers have won their first three contests in Europe, posting a 2-0 win...

Rangers win 4-1 in preseason game at Bratislava

Mats Zuccarrelo started a string of four unanswered goals and the New York Rangers rallied for a 4-1 victory over Slovan Bratislava on Sunday for their third straight preseason win in Europe. Slovan took a 1-0 lead on Ivan Svarny's slap shot during a first-period power play, but Zuccarrelo tied it during a 5-3 advantage in the second and goals from Brian Boyle and Artem Anisimov...

Will Sean Avery survive final New York Rangers’ cuts?

The New York Rangers have to trim their roster down to 24 players by Wednesday, and there's going to be a significant amount of drama in Coach John Tortorella's decision. When Sean Avery's involved, when isn't there drama? From Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News: The team must cut down to 24 players by Wednesday, and John Tortorella said in a conference call from...

Guest blogger: Lowell Blum … Rangers-HC Slovan in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers were totally outplayed by an adrenalized Slovakian team until midway in the second period when the Rangers received a 5 on 3 for a full two minutes. The Rangers scored twice on beautiful passing and from then on dominated the game. The capacity crowd of 10,000 was extremely reserved; hand clapping and some chanting was the measure of their enthusiasm. There...

Rangers @ HC Slovan Post Game Thoughts

This is one you have to chalk up to the Rangers hectic travel schedule. Clearly the team was gassed to start the game, as they were unable to generate any sort of foot speed, and looked lethargic out there to a man. As the game wore on, the Rangers seemed to get their energy levels up to respectable levels, and were able to pull of a win, albeit an unimpressive win considering...

Sunday Link Dump: Youth Infusion On Hold?

It’s Sunday, so it’s time for today’s link dump. Steve Zipay at Newsday thinks that the Rangers youth movement is on hold because the Rangers cut Carl Hagelin and Ryan Bourque yesterday.  I am inclined to disagree here.  There is a ton of youth on the team already, and you don’t just put youth on the team just to do it.  The Rangers are adding Mats Zuccarello full time...

Rangers defeat Lundqvist's former Swedish team

GOTEBORG, Sweden -- Henrik Lundqvist helped the Rangers beat his former Swedish club Frolunda 4-2 Friday in a preseason homecoming game that pitted him against twin brother Joel. Lundqvist received a long standing ovation from the sellout crowd at Scandinavium Arena before the game. He responded by blanking his former...

Rangers-Frolunda in review

(Editor’s note: Anybody interested in doing reviews of the Sunday or Monday games? If so, e-mail me at Another round of cuts coming today for John Tortorella. As I’ve said all along, there really aren’t a lot of spots available for new guys. The Rangers still need to keep some extra bodies around with two more preseason games and the season opening in...

Staal won't be packing bags for Europe

The Rangers should hope Monday's 8-4 drubbing at the hands of Ev Zug in their preseason finale is a result of a fatigue, and not a foreshadowing of what their defense will look like without Marc Staal on the ice. The team announced after their loss in Switzerland that Staal won't be making the trip to Europe this week.
