Found July 31, 2012 on The Rangers Tribune:
So well over a week ago I posted here on The Rangers Tribune that I was looking to bulk up the staff on the blog for the upcoming season, and over the course of the next few days received tons of interest from many of you in regard to a writing position. I thought it would only be fair to give everyone an update on the status of everything there, so here it goes; - If you showed interest in writing for the blog and have already submitted your writing assignment entry, I thank you for getting me your writing in a timely fashion and the analyzing process has already begun. Also, check your emails as I sent something out to all of you late last night.  - If you showed interest in writing and have not submitted your writing assignment yet, TODAY is the final day to do so. I don't want this to drag on for the entire summer so we need to wrap this up and make decisions.  - I should have my decisions made on the new Rangers Tribune staff in a week. I put an emphasis on 'shoul...

Glen Sather – The Misunderstood GM

One of the hardest parts of writing is when you get a concept you really like, really want to write about but you can’t quite figure out how to go about executing the piece. The topic of Glen Sather has been that way for the last few weeks for me. See, I’ve started to reconsider [...]

Henrik Lundqvist Camp

This info was sent to me last week. Since I was moving this past weekend, I could not get to posting it until now. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is hosting a new youth instructional hockey camp in the New York area, and it sounds like a great event. Join New York Rangers goaltender and 2012 Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist for hockey instruction and fun at the 2012 Henrik...

Blog: Stu Bickel’s Growing Pains

Pretty much everyone knows that I’m a big Stu Bickel fan. While he may not have had a spectacular rookie season with the Rangers last season, he won my heart. He showed that with grit and determination, he could play in the NHL (longer than most had expected him to).  But his rookie season wasn’t [...]

The greatest European Rangers:part 3

After all the Rick Nash hullabaloo has now calmed down, here’s the final part of the greatest European Rangers series. It’s subjective and meant for debate and how much one man’s opinion truly matters is really open for debate. Some players like Ulf Samuelsson and Radek Dvorak don’t make the debate, some people may disagree but that’s the beauty of lists like this.  Anyway...

What Will the Rangers Lines Look Like Next Season?

I understand this is as big an exercise in futility as there is, as figuring out a Rubix Cube while intoxicated is easier than determining line combinations with John Tortorella's team.However, it's a slow day in Ranger land and a healthy debate never hurts. Listed below are what I think could realistically be line combos heading into next season. Bear in mind, this excludes...

Recap: Glen Sather Gets Nash-ty

In a move that was months in the making, Glen Sather waited out the ridiculous demands of Columbus GM Scott Howson, and finally got his man. The deal finally consummated saw fan favorites Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov sent to Columbus and Rick Nash finally landing on Broadway. It had been a quiet offseason for [...]

Why The New York Rangers Blog Is Back

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. When I told you guys back in the beginning of June that I was taking a break and MAYBE it would be for good, I was lying.I had absolutely no intention of starting the blog back up. It was over. I was at peace with my decision and no one was going to change my mind.Then the e-mails, tweets, Facebook messages and comments started to pour...

Questions without answers

New York Rangers July has turned into August and even I have to admit that seeing the New York Rangers having this quiet an off-season is a strange feeling. I can't recall the last time when the New York Rangers were this quiet during the off-season. Other than the Rick Nash trade the New York Rangers look almost like they don't want to spend any money. Rather strange...

Debunking the Shane Doan asking price

With Rick Nash in the mix, there appears to be only one more target for the Rangers, and that is Shane Doan. Adding Doan to the club would solidify the Rangers depth at forward, making them true Stanley Cup contenders, and possibly the Cup favorites come October. Since the Phoenix ownership situation is still up in the air, Doan has already begun shopping his services, which included...

What Happens to Rangers Line-up With Doan on Board?

In a piece on possible Shane Doan landing spots at NHL.com, Dan Rosen discusses how the Coyotes captain would fit in on the Rangers..."If Doan signs with New York, he'd likely push Hagelin out of the top six and force Nash to play on the left side, where Nash says he is comfortable.Until Gaborik returns, the Rangers could field a top line of Nash with Brad Richards and Doan...

Nash Overrated? Are You Serious?

Steve Zipay at Newsday spoke with former Columbus Blue Jacket GM Doug McLean about what type of player the Rangers are getting in Rick Nash..."Where do you find a 6-4, 235-pound guy with hands, who can skate, is entering his prime, with limited miles on him -- although every night he was the No. 1 focus, tightly checked, man-on-man, because teams knew if you shut down Rick Nash...

The $345 Dollar Question

Here's Your Sign Call this a test of your ability to be able to read between the lines, as it doesn't matter if you're a New York Ranger or New York Islander fan today. This is a post about the little things, the details and the reasons why it takes several people to build a good foundation. For those of you who haven't noticed, my wife and I have relocated...

Rangers Can’t Make Drury-like Mistake with Shane Doan

If reports are to be believed, Shane Doan is currently seeking a four-year contract worth around $30 million if and when he concludes remaining in Phoenix is no longer a desirable scenario. A deal of that magnitude would call for a salary cap expenditure of $7.5 million annually. Doan will be 36 by the start [...]
