Rangers re-sign Martin Biron

Via Larry Brooks, the Rangers have re-signed backup goalie Martin Biron for two years and $2.6M. The 34-year-old netminder posted a 2.46 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 21 games last year, capably filling in as the club was able to rest Henrik Lundqvist for the stretch drive. Re-signing Biron — or replacing him another solid backup — was a top priority this summer and it...

Rangers Sign Micheal Haley (UPDATE: Prust Goes to MTL)

#NYR Rangers have signed former #Isles tough guy Micheal Haley to two-year deal — Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN) July 1, 2012 I really like Haley's toughness and swagger, as did Isles fans, but this signing begs the question: How many tough guys do the Rangers need on the roster? Rupp, Bickel, Asham and now Haley are all signed to contracts.  GM Glen Sather needs...

Yet another signing making Sather look good.

Right before free agency opens up another desperate general manager on another desperate team has once again made Glen Sather look good. While there’s no doubting the Flames acquisition of Dennis Wideman was a solid move, the contract given to him by Jay Feaster smacks of desperation and makes Ranger contracts like Marc Staal’s and in particular Dan Girardi’s look like excellent...

Biron Back With the Blueshirts

The New York Rangers made a smart move by re-signing their backup netminder Martin Biron to a 2-year deal. Larry Brooks ‏@NYP_Brooksie NYR have completed vital bit of business. Post has learned that Biron has re-upped for 2 years, $2.6 total. There is no doubt that Biron has been a valuable asset to the Blueshirts since joining the team in the 2010-11 season. Biron has showed...

Rangers Sign Aaron Asham

Asham completes his tour of Atlantic Division, 2 yrs $1M per with Rangers.— Larry Brooks(@NYP_Brooksie) July 1, 2012 Two reasons I'm not a big fan of this signing: - It likely means Brandon Prust is officially not re-signing with the Rangers. They essentially fill the same roll in terms of being an enforcer, but Prust is cleaner, more respected and is more offensively capable...

UFA of the Day: Brandon Prust

Today on this not so gorgeous Saturday I battle what is either the start of a cold, or a hangover. But either way, here is today’s UFA of the Day. It addresses something I haven’t written about yet. Toughness. Here is Brandon Prust in today’s UFA of the Day. Name: Brandon Prust Age: 27 Size: 6’2″, 192 Lbs Why the Canucks might want him: Toughness. If you want to beef up...

What To Expect From The Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, It’s difficult to determine just who Sather might target over the next 48 hours. There is no credible right defenseman on the market to fill the second-pair hole on defense that remains wide open after University of Wisconsin free agent Justin Schultz’s decision yesterday to sign with the Oilers. Rather than throw Monopoly money at marginal...
