Checking In on Evgeny Grachev

Evgeny Grachev was one of the most highly touted Rangers prospects until the club traded him to St. Louis this past June for a third round pick, used on Steven Fogarty. The organization was criticized for “giving up” on Grachev and trading him away for “so little.” We were one of the blogs curious about the trade.  It turned out that Grachev asked for a trade, and that the...

Henrik Lundqvist: The King Of The Crease

Of course, we’re talking about Henrik Lundqvist. I, like many lifelong Rangers fans, have had the unbelievable pleasure of watching Henrik Lundqvist’s career evolve right before our very eyes. The King was drafted in 2000 by the NY Rangers. 205th overall.  Other notable goalies who were drafted that year: Rick DiPietro (1st Overall), Ilya Bryzgalov [...]

Tangible Progress – Part One

I feel pretty qualified (even from afar) to be able to pass judgement on how the Rangers have progressed over the first, now almost third, of the season.  Why? Simple really. We all watch the games but I was there for games one and two in Sweden and I was there for arguably there two stiffest challenges to date against the Flyers and Penguins. In between there has been a lot of...

Have a Staaly Jolly Christmas, part 1

(SCENE: ERIC, JORDAN and MARC STAAL are at their parents’ house in Thunder bay, Ontario.) MAMA STAAL: It’s so nice to have you boys here for Christmas, even if Jared is running a bit late.  It’s just too bad that the dog ate our turkey…and the ham.  And about six pies. FATHER STAAL: Damn turkey wasn’t even thawed yet! It was still all frozen! ERIC: That’s my Rockso...

Mark Messier Announces He Will Play In Alumni Game

Former New York Rangers great and captain Mark Messier has announced that he will take part in the NHL Alumni Game against the Philadelphia Flyers during the 1st intermission of the Rangers against the Tampa Bay Lighting on MSG Network tonight. Messier was supposed to undergo shoulder surgery at the beginning of December and it [...]

Pregame: Rangers Seek Bounce-Back Effort Against Lightning

The reason behind Monday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs to break a five-game winning streak at the time was quite simple: the Rangers only showed up for half of the game. Well, I guess that isn't necessarily the proper way to put it. What I should say is that it took the Blueshirts 30 minutes to get going against Toronto, therefore leaving them with a shortage of time...

Michael Sauer Diagnosed With A Concussion; Day To Day

… not good at all. I guess Anton Stralman will find his way back into the lineup until the Rangers figure out how long Sauer will be out. Hopefully not long.   

Video: Mark Messier Announces His Addition to Alumni Game Roster

… I knew Mark would find a way to play!  You cannot have an Alumni Game with the Rangers being a part of it and no Mark Messier, it’s just wrong. But Mark delayed his shoulder surgery and will be putting on a Blueshirt for all to see in Philadelphia. Can’t wait!

It’s Go Time!

Game 25. First of three in four nights, and four in six. Rangers still one away from 2,500 all-time wins. Anton Stralman makes his second start as a Ranger, in place of injured Michael Sauer (concussion). Steve Eminger moves up to the second pair with Michael Del Zotto. Erik Christensen remains prucha’d. Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Otherwise, same lineup that lost a five...

Rangers Become Latest Victim of Concussion Epidemic

By Christopher Decker (@HockeyGuy_Chris) This is the year of the concussion. It has to be. It seems that almost as soon as the league cracked down on illegal head shots, the amount of head injuries has practically skyrocketed. Go figure. And it hasn’t all been the result of illegal checks to the head, either. Now, clean shoulder checks to the opposition are also causing concussions...

Time-Lapse Video Of Citizens Bank Park Preparations For Winter Classic Is Neat

With the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic only a few weeks away, the preparations involved in transforming Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park from a stadium designed for baseball into an acceptable and functional venue for an NHL hockey game have been stepped up to breakneck speed. Look how fast the workers are getting after it in [...]

Krist Letang Sucks

I can't remember where I saw this but a video of TSN's top 10 most hated NHLers exists and seems to be from a couple of years back. Sean Avery is number 1, so that. Number somethingorother is former Penguin Darius Kasparaitis. Actually, former Pens Kaspar, Ulf and Matthew Barnaby made the list. But during the Kaspar spot, TSN had a crawl at the bottom of the screen in...

NHL plan has new old look 

Rangers general manager Glen Sather has not made a peep about the NHL board of governors’ approval Monday night of a new four-conference realignment. The Rangers will not even release a statement about the decision made in Pebble Beach, Calif.

Dion Phaneuf's Dad Gets High Fives After His Son Decapitates A Ranger

The NHL's radical realignment means four conferences that will need names, so how about the Michael Sauer Memorial Conference after the late Rangers defenseman, taken in the prime of his life by this clean hit from last night. Just kidding! He's not dead. He's being evaluated by doctors with an "upper body injury," which is...
