Couldn't have been many NHL teams more opposed to a salary cap than the New York Rangers. Can't be many who have benefited more from the league adopting one, either. Not because it leveled the league's financial playing field -- that's precisely what New York didn't care much for -- but because it forced the Rangers to re-think their approach to putting together teams.

NHL Fines Rangers Tortorella 30K

The National Hockey League sent a large message in response to the post game  comments of New York Rangers coach John Tortorella levying a $30K fine.

Rangers-Panthers in review

For all the complaining we (I) did about the outdoor game, it was a downer going back indoors, especially at the World’s Quietest Arena. What a shame. Could you imagine a first-place team in the middle of a season in the 1970s or ‘80s and the kind of intimidation MSG would throw at an opponent?
