In a piece on Brad Richards facing his former team the Dallas Stars tonight for the first time since signing with the Rangers, Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports on why the All Star center would not waive his no-move clause to be traded to the Blueshirts at the deadline last year..."...according to an individual with knowledge of the situation, he declined to waive his...
The New York Rangers enter tonight's contest against the Dallas Stars having won their past two games and seven out of their last ten. Their consistent success has set them up to potentially take over the first place spot in the Eastern Conference this evening, but a couple of things would need to happen first. The result of tonight's tilt between the Rangers will not ...
Larry Brooks had a nice little appreciation of Brad Richards yesterday.
Brooks also credited New York Rangers coach John Tortorella, who moved Richards off of Marian Gaborik’s line when it became obvious the two just weren’t clicking.
Tortorella deserves a lot of credit for his handling of Richards.
Given Richards salary, it would seem that he belongs on a top line. But...
During last night's 6-1 Rangers victory over the Florida Panthers, Brad Richards briefly left the game to receive stitches after taking a puck to the mouth (via Rangers Rants)....i think my heart skipped a beat when Micheletti mentioned that Richards had gone into the locker room with Jim Ramsey.For a pic of Marian Gaborik with @TheBroadwayHat click the "Read More"...

John Tortorella sat Brad Richards for more than nine minutes after the big-money center’s line surrendered two early goals to the Blues. The Rangers were handed their second straight defeat, 4-1.
The New York Rangers (17-8-4) lost to the St. Louis Blues (18-9-3) by the score of 4-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....that's as bad as it gets Rangers fans. Team slept walked through that one. Very rarely do you see this team lack effort and energy the way they did tonight....hmmm, energy? Effort? Wonder where the Rangers can find some of that...

“As a whole team, I was surprised that everyone was so well turned-out. Unlike other cities, you’re meeting people who work in fashion and are exposed to designers.”.
“The aura of Sean [Avery] pushing people in what they wear isn’t really true. He’ll toy with certain things that are a little off the wall. Everybody...
This was the lead to my story in The Journal News and on LoHud.com about last night’s game:
Get ready, hockey fans. The NHL is going to shove more nights like this down your throats with realignment.
More non-conference games, more games with zero playoff implications. Less passion. Quieter arenas.
The Rangers and Dallas Stars put a library-like Madison Square Garden to...
