Bleeding All Blue:
The New York Rangers have been silent on the Marc Staal front for weeks, and
those optimistic he was coming back soon probably wish it had remained quiet
this morning. According to Larry Brooks
of the New
, the Rangers are going to place Staal on Long-Term Injury Reserve. Staal is already eligible for the move because he has missed 10 games and 24 days of the season with his injury. The status of his comeback from the concussions is still unchanged, which at this point means his return is only getting further and further away. The move today is purely about the salary cap.
The move allows New York to exceed the salary
cap by the pro-rated amount of Staal’s $3.975 million based on the number of
days he was out. If he missed the whole season,
then they would be able to go over by that amount, but there is still hope that
won’t happen. The move is necessary for the Rangers to open up the cap space to sign Anton
Stralman, have Sean Avery on the active roster and potentially recall Mats
Zuccarello now that Wojtek Wolski is out once again with a groin injury.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Rangers are making plans to borrow close to an additional $3.975 million of cap space by placing Marc Staal on Long Term Injury exemption in conjunction with personnel moves that will bring the club as close as possible to the cap before taking the step on the alternate...
The moment many have been waiting for has arrived as Andrew
Gross is reporting that Sean Avery will be in the lineup tomorrow against
Montreal. Wolski is having an MRI on the groin and the results will be out tomorrow. The New York Rangers will be
without Wojtek Wolski who is out once again with a groin injury. Should there be anything serious then he would likely...

The New York Rangers enter tonight's game against the Montreal Canadiens -- the first between the two this season -- having won their last two games against the San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks, and with a 5-3-3 record on the year. The Canadiens, on the other hand, have won their last four games after struggling early, and are 5-5-2 in their first twelve games. Both clubs have...
The New York Rangers have started a bit of a winning streak after deating the Anaheim Ducks last night 2-1 in a shootout, giving them two straight wins in as many games.
Much like when the two clubs met in Sweden back in early October, this was an exciting game that saw timely goal scoring, some good physical play and great goaltending from Jonas Hiller and Henrik Lundqvist. The...
Via Bob McKenzie, the Rangers have signed right-handed defenseman Anton Stralman to a one-year contract worth $900,000. The team has not yet confirmed the signing according to Steve Zipay. The Rangers’ interest in Stralman has been rumored for what feels like weeks now, and the move just adds some blue line depth given Marc Staal’s continued absence due to concussion-like symptoms.
Love this pic of the Rangers watching on as Andre Deveaux tussles with Anaheim's George Parros during last night 2-1 shootout win for the Rangers....Deveaux, who I thought had a strong camp, has impressed the heck out of me his first two games. In limited ice time the guy has made himself noticable every time he's on the ice whether it's a fight, a hit or a nice play...

The New York Rangers certainly bolstered their blue line today, agreeing to terms with unrestricted free agent Anton Stralman. After not receiving a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Stralman hit the market as a UFA. He then failed to sign with the New Jersey Devils following their preseason...
