The Rangers will only go as far as their top players take them

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images North America We’ve spent a lot of time talking about how the Rangers, as currently constructed, are not a team that is rich with depth. It’s something that we’ve discussed on about a weekly basis at this point, but depth is only a part of the problem. The issue of depth is easy to address, but that won’t matter if the star players on the Rangers...

Rangers control their own destiny in final 14 games

Just win please. The Rangers lost to Montreal last night, which wasn’t all that unexpected considering past success there. With the loss, the Rangers sit in 8th place in the East with a 16-15-3 record. They are tied with the Islanders in points, but hold the tiebreaker at the moment. In essence, with the Islanders the only team tied in points, the Rangers control their own destiny...

Sean Avery Calls for Rangers to Fire John Tortorella, Ryan Callahan Responds With Statement

Former Rangers forward Sean Avery, for the most part, uses his Twitter account to discuss fashion and music. Over the weekend, however, he once again caught the attention of the hockey world with some very critical words about his former coach. Avery, who is currently out of the game, decided to weigh in on the Rangers’ current situation, which isn’t a very good one. New York...

Five Marian Gaborik trades that make (some) sense

Simmons/News We have a category for “Irresponsible Rumormongering,” but this post probably belongs under “Completely Irresponsible Rumormongering That Might Raise Eklund’s Eyebrows.”  Sorry for that, but it’s that time of year… Marian Gaborik to San Jose for Dan Boyle Boyle for Gaborik is the rumor mentioned most frequently by those in the know and it also happens...

Staal May Be Done for the Season

Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Marc Staal (eye) has not yet begun skating and with only 14 games remaining in the season there might not be enough time for him to be cleared and properly conditioned before the end of the season.

Rangers sign London Knights UFA defenseman Tommy Hughes

This one was tweeted to me by OHL scout Victor Carneiro, and I’m a little delayed in posting this (Thanks for the tip Vic!). The Rangers have signed Tommy Hughes, a 6’2, 215 lb defenseman from the London Knights. Hughes, an undrafted free agent, just finished his fourth season with London, putting together a line of 1-15-16 in 67 games. The right-handed defenseman will be another...

St. Louis to the Rangers?; Gabby on the Block?; Newbury Back to Whale; No Decision on Fast

With the Rangers in full free fall mode, you have to assume Glen Sather will do something to shake things up. Well, according to Jason York at Sportsnet, Martin St. Louis might be that move. While York said he doesn't expect St. Louis to be traded he did add that list the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers as possible destinations. In related news, Steve Zipay at Newsday...

The Rangers Have Lost Their Edge

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, There has been no edge and no resolve from the Rangers, who don’t even resemble distant cousins from last year’s Black-and-Blueshirts who spit out nails and pucks on their way to storming to the East’s regular season championship before being stopped in the conference finals. The team that led the NHL with 65 fighting majors last season...

Goal breakdown: Rangers still can’t solve Canadiens

This loss is a bit of a difficult one to take. The Rangers played very well int his game. They generated offense, they had a solid powerplay, but they just couldn’t solve Carey Price. Price kept it at 1-0 (on that flukey goal) for a long time before one breakdown made it 2-0. Following that, the Rangers didn’t give up (still generated good chances), but you could tell something...

Ryan Callahan had a goal and three assists as the Rangers snapped a two-game losing streak, picking up two vital points in their fight to hold onto a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

I'm Sorry I Hope You Can Forgive Me

When I first started The New York Rangers Blog back in 2007, it was out of my love for the Rangers. I wanted to create a one-stop shop for Blueshirt fans to get their Rangers fix. Updates, stats, rumors and more in one easy to find spot. There was nothing similar available and I felt Rangers fans deserved a blog with the same dedication and commitment they had. Along the way...

Critical Stretch of the Season This Week

Two straight shutouts. Offensive ineptitude on a grand scale. No sign of desperation. And with just 14 games remaining, the door is slowly starting to close. These are your New York Rangers. Now you can look at this two ways. The glass half-full person will say despite the recent stretch of losing, New York is still in a playoff position and can turn things around quickly...

Goal breakdown: Rangers get two big points against Winnipeg

The Rangers came out flying in this game, as evidenced by the first goal 19 seconds into the game. They played the way we’ve been expecting them to play all year, but haven’t seen it enough. They forechecked, generated offensive chances, and capitalized on their chances. They had their shaky moments, such as the defensive breakdown that led to the first goal, but their good play...

Game 35 preview: Jets at Rangers

Another day, another game against a Canadian team that the Rangers can’t seem to beat. On Thursday the Senators completed the season sweep of the Rangers (0-2-1). Saturday was Montreal’s turn (0-3-0). Today, the Jets come in hoping to make it three sweeps in a row (Rangers are currently 0-2-0). The Jets are a team that the Rangers are fully capable of beating, and need to do...
