Found July 02, 2014 on Blue Seat Blogs:
In an unannounced move made late last night, the Rangers added some more depth in Hartford, signing Ryan Bourque’s brother Chris to a one-year, two-way contract worth $600k at the NHL level.  Bourque has 51 games of NHL experience, and his last role was with the Bruins (18 games). He played in the KHL and […] The post Rangers sign Chris Bourque appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Musings: What’s next? What is the ideal situation to trade Marc Staal?

Happy Almost-Three-Day-Weekend folks. A lot has gone on in Rangerland over the past few days, so let’s get to the musings. The Rangers have $14.6 million in cap space to fill six forward spots and one defense spot. If you allocate about $12 million to Derick Brassard ($4 million), Mats Zuccarello ($4.5 million) , Chris […] The post Musings: What’s next? What is the ideal situation...

Free agency really sucks for the Rangers

Fifteen minutes into free agency and things are really not going well for the Rangers. Pierre LeBrun reports that the Rangers are officially out on Anton Stralman, which sucks especially since Christian Ehrhoff took a remarkably below value deal of just one year and $4M to play with the Penguins next year. Mark Fayne is also off the board, he signed a four year deal with the Oilers...

Dominic Moore re-signs with Rangers

In what is likely to be the only bit of good news for the Rangers today, Dominic Moore has re-signed with the club. Moore originally was seeking three years, but settled for two and $3M total to stay with New York. Unfortunately for Moore, he will have to carry the possession piano that is Tanner Glass on his back for the next two years. Sorry for that Dom, but I’m glad you’re...

Lightning sign Brian Boyle

The Lightning picked up another Rangers player today by signing Brian Boyle to a three year, $6 million contract. Boyle allegedly wanted to leave New York to search for more playing time. But as Raw Charge points out, Boyle likely slots in on the Lightning’s fourth line. Boyle’s wife is apparently from the Tampa Bay though and he is believed to have been offered more by the Maple...

Chris Bourque Signs With New York Rangers

Chris Bourque is returning to an NHL organization. The New York Rangers announced Wednesday morning that they have signed the forward to a contract. The details of the contract were not released by the team. The 28-year-old son of NHL legend Ray Bourque last played in the NHL during the 2013 season. The younger Bourque appeared in 18 games with the Boston Bruins that season and...

It Will Be The New, New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Break up the NHL Eastern Conference champions? You betcha, for the combination of free agency and life in a restrictive hard-cap world will ensure the Rangers’ 2014-15 team photo will look significantly different from the one that was snapped during the Stanley Cup finals. At least five, and perhaps six, of the 18 skaters who competed...

Rangers in Free Agency: The Departed – Ranger Reunion

I’m not necessarily a fan of actors Leonardo DiCaprio or Matt Damon yet I loved the movie, “The Departed.” And this blog almost cried out for that title since this Rangers club lost some key players from a squad that surprisingly made it to the Cup Final a month ago. Despite the wishes of fans, […]

Stralman Has Long Term, $5M Per Offer; Pouliot Meets With Senators; Rangers Call About Glass

With an all out free agency frenzy expected to occur at noon today, I figured I’d do a purge post with every rumor and insider information on the Rangers I could find. And here we go: Pierre LeBrun at says Anton Stralman has a long-term offer worth between $4.5 million and $5 million coming his way from another team. @dstaples Stralman David, hmm. 6 clubs have shown...

Alexei Kovalev hangs up skates after 24 years of pro hockey

With the 15th pick in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, the New York Rangers made Alexei Kovalev the first ever Russian player to be selected in the first round.* I went overboard with links, mainly because I'm not sure when I'll get to write about one of my favorite childhood players again. So please forgive me. Also, feel free to pre-check the URL's first, I promise they'...

Rangers sign Dan Boyle, Mike Kostka

The Rangers have officially replaced both Anton Stralman and Raphael Diaz, signing UFA defensemen Dan Boyle and Mike Kostka. Boyle got two years and $4.5 million per year, with a no-movement clause (relatively pointless). Boyle’s #fancystats aren’t terrible, but he’s been exploited a few times for losing his foot speed. The cap hit isn’t terrible, […] The post Rangers sign...

Rangers sign Dan Boyle

The Rangers found “their” replacement for Anton Stralman by signing Dan Boyle to a two year, $9 million deal ($4.5M AAV). It looks as though Boyle was the Rangers man all along. If you read this blog, which you clearly must, you will know that I hate this signing. I don’t think Boyle is particularly great on the power play anymore and he really isn’t capable of playing Stralman’s...

Rangers Address Defense With Signings of Dan Boyle, Mike Kostka

Boyle recorded 12 goals and 36 points in 75 games this past season. The veteran defenseman was traded from San Jose to the New York Islanders for a conditional 2015 fifth-round draft pick last month, but chose to not re-up with the club. This is [...]

Mueller split this past season between the Dallas Stars and the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League. Mueller has playedin 46 career NHL games over parts of four seasons with Nashville and Dallas, registering two goals and six assists for eight points.

Rangers’ Depth At Center May Be An Issue

from Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, The Rangers have lost five key contributors from last season's Eastern Conference championship team through trade, buyout or free agency, including two capable centers in Brad Richards and Brian Boyle, even if Boyle played left wing most of last season. The Blueshirts again will have Derek Stepan, Derick Brassard and Dominic...
