Found January 31, 2013 on NY Rangers Blog:
According to Brett Cyrgalis at the New York Post, despite the Ryan Callahan injury and the Jason Arnott signing falling through, the Rangers have not reached out to free agents Brian Rolston and Daymond Langkow. Rolston, 39, had 7g, 17a in 70 games with the Islanders and Bruins last season. He also had 1g, 2a in seven playoff games with the Bruins. Langkow, 36, had 11g, 19a in 73 games with the Coyotes last year. He had 1g, 6a in 16 playoff games. ...good, neither of these guys excites me at all. Would rather the Rangers try to ride it out with a Whale call-up until Kreider is ready to return next week than waste their time with one of these guys. One guy who did seem to excite Rangers fans yesterday was F Zach Boychuk, who was waived by the Carolina Hurricanes. Boychuk, 23, is a 2008 first round pick (14th overall) of the Hurricanes and was their AHL affiliate's leading scorer this year with 16g, 16a in 37 games before he made the big club out of training ...

Is it time for the Rangers to draft a goaltender?

The Rangers are blessed with the King but shouldn’t assume he’s around forever. The Rangers are in an enviable situation with Henrik Lundqvist manning their net at an age where he can continue playing at a high level for a long time behind what should be a contender for several seasons. The immediate future in net is bright, but those who think the club should sit back and...

Ryan Callahan Suffers Apparent Arm Injury, No Word on How Much Time He’ll Miss (Video)

The Rangers could be looking at some time without one of their best players. Captain Ryan Callahan suffered what appeared to be a pretty painful left arm injury Tuesday night in the third period of New York’s 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Callahan took exception to a little extracurricular activity from Philly’s Max Talbot around the Rangers net, and the two ended up...

Callahan May Not Be Out of the Woods

After hearing the news that Ryan Callahan will only miss 10 - 14 days with a shoulder subluxation, Rangers Nation exploded into obvious rejoice. However, there was one person who sent out a word of caution... Quick warning ... though it's probably uncommon, another NYR captain, Barry Beck, had his career wrecked by recurring shoulder subluxations — Rangers Report...

Callahan out 10-14 days

Per Bob McKenzie, captain Ryan Callahan is out 10-14 days with a shoulder subluxation, which means that Cally’s shoulder popped out of its socket real fast, then settled back in. This could have been a lot worse, but the Rangers will definitely miss Cally while he is out for those two weeks. While he’s out, expect Carl Hagelin and Taylor Pyatt to get a lot of time with Derek Stepan. Tweet

The end of the tough seven game stretch

Rob Carr/Getty Images The Rangers opened the season 3-4-0. Sure, it’s not the start everyone had envisioned, especially with both Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider out with injuries, but it’s only marginally worse than last year’s 3-2-2 start through seven games. That start included four games against non-playoff teams. This year the Rangers played the Penguins twice, the Flyers...

Around the Farm: St. Croix, McColgan add to point totals in victories

The two Ranger prospects playing in the WHL padded their point totals last night, as Michael St. Croix (Edmonton Oil Kings) and Shane McColgan (Saskatoon Blades) both contributed assists in their teams respective victories. St. Croix now has 59 points (24-24-59) in 52 games, and McColgan has 46 points (11-35-46) in 46 games. Both players are expected to join the Whale next season...

Perfect Home Stand Would Erase Rangers' Early Struggles

Much of the fan base was in the tizzy about how the New York Rangers opened the lockout-shortened season and rightfully so. They looked out-of-sync, a step slow and, at times, completely lost. Not the winning brand of hockey we've grown accustom to here. And not the type of hockey that will get you a spot in the playoffs for a chance to win a Stanley Cup that everyone has predicted...

Nash Not Scoring

Rick Nash has 1 goal on 26 shots. As well as he has played, and it has been very, very well, that's somewhat of a problem. — Dave Lozo (@DaveLozo) January 30, 2013 Nash has five assists and is a +5. ...you know what's strange, until I saw this tweet I didn't even notice. His game is so complete, he's been helping the Rangers win (see his five assists...

Flyers Fall To Rangers, It's There Own Fault

(Ryan Callahan left the game with an apparent shoulder injury) If you watched the game, you know the Flyers lost this game.  The Rangers played a strong game, but they certainly didn't win the game, we lost it.  The Flyers again were unable to capitalize on their power plays, and they get the loss.

Penguins-Rangers Preview

The New York Rangers appear to be back on track after a poor start to the season. The opposite has been true for the Pittsburgh Penguins, whose sudden dropoff after a solid opening has them searching for answers. The Rangers, though, will try to begin making do without captain Ryan Callahan as they look to stop a pair of losing streaks against Pittsburgh on Thursday night. New...

Blah

That is exactly the way the New York Rangers played tonight in their 3-0 shutout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at Madison Square Garden. The Blueshirts failed to get many quality scoring chances, put too many pucks into the mid-section or right into Penguins' netminder Tomas Vokoun, ran into bad luck with hitting goal posts and struggled on the power play. The team also did...
