Whispers that #NYRangers have spoken to #LAKings about Marian Gaborik — Dennis Bernstein (@DennisTFP) March 20, 2013 Bernstein adds that the Rangers had two scouts at the Kings/Coyotes game last night. ...with the Rangers not playing the Western Conference this season, you have to assume they were scouting players for a potential trade. ...despite being a former Flyer as well as Dubinsky's nemesis, wouldn't mind seeing Mike Richards wearing a Blueshirt. I think he'd be a perfect fit for this team. Having said that, you all know I'm against trading Gaborik and I think he's slowly showing signs of breaking out of his funk. Would hate to trade a 40-goal scorer just as he's ready to breakout. ...also Richards is under contract until 2016 at $6.8 million per year, so doubt it's happening. ...Rob Scuderi could be someone the Rangers have their eye on as a rental. Final year of his contract with Stanley Cup pedigree. Remember to fol...

Rangers recall Chris Kreider; return Micheal Haley to AHL

The Rangers have recalled rookie Chris Kreider from the AHL after a one month stay with the Whale. Kreider, who was sent to Connecticut on February 28, scored six goals and added an assist in eight games since the demotion. Kreider seemed more confident with the puck and was making better decisions without the puck, which was a big part of the reason for his demotion. To make room...

Built on resolve, Rangers still can go far

Derek Stepan, just one of many reasons for optimism this season There’s a million and one sporting clichés but one that often appears to ring true is how a team has to learn to lose and experience struggles before they can get to the top. The Rangers have struggled mightily at various stages this season. Perhaps, their struggles even began when they were outlasted by the Devils...

Musings; the futures edition

Can Kreider’s recent good form translate to the NHL this year? It’s rather a sombre beginning to a Musings post today as the unfortunate news of Glen Sather receiving treatment for prostate cancer reached us all.

Rangers GM Glen Sather to undergo surgery for cancer

Many people quip that hockey is just “a kids sport,” that while they are blessed to make money being involved in a sport they love, there is so much more to life. Today is one of those days where we remember that important tenet.  As first reported by Steve Zipay of New York Newsday on Wednesday, Rangers president and general manager Glen Sather will be undergoing surgery...

Lundqvist May Have Literally Saved the Season

With the Rangers down 1-0 to the Hurricanes and looking more lethargic by the second, it seemed like the season was slipping away in front of our eyes. So in the second period when Riley Nash popped open on the crease and had the final nail in the Blueshirts coffin on his stick, Rangers fans saw this lost season flash in front of their eyes. That was until Henrik Lundqvist decided...

Stepan, Hagelin Setting Great Example By Attending Optionals

Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin have been enjoying breakout seasons. They're both in the top four in team scoring, while also making a difference on the defensive end. Another way they've had a positive role on this team is by attending every optional practice this season. Which John Tortorella addressed yesterday... "I've used them as examples. Especially...

Panthers 3, Rangers 1

Here we go again. Following two wins, including a pretty energetic one against the Devils, there was hope that the Rangers could finally tally a string of victories together. Instead, we again witness an underwhelming loss against an underwhelming opponent. So ends the streak, so start the questions again about the morale of the team, where the offense is, and what it's going...
