No update on Nash injury; No one sent to AHL

There was a lot of panic in Rangerland yesterday when Rick Nash was a last-minute scratch due to an undisclosed injury. This is the same injury that caused him to miss the Season Subscriber Forum last week, but didn’t prevent him from playing 20 minutes in the 2-1 victory over Washington. The Rangers haven’t released any details on the injury. Reading between the lines of the...

Nash Injury Believed to Be Groin

Jeff Klein at the New York Times reports that the injury which held  Rick Nash out of last night's game is believed to be related to a groin injury he sustained while playing with HC Davos of the Swiss National League A during the lockout. Back in December, Nash left his Swiss team to return to New York and get the groin checked out. At the time, it was said not to be serious...

The Nash Injury Timeline

With the Rangers not confirming the nature of Rick Nash's injury, there has been a ton of speculation from the flu to re-aggravating an old groin injury to a concussion. So I decided to setup a Nash injury timeline to help us out. It all started with a little over 13 minutes left in the Rangers 4-3 shootout victory against the Bruins on February 12th when Milan Lucic...

The Rangers Are Finally Who We Thought They Were

Expectations for this New York Rangers team could not have been much higher coming into the 2013 season. With how close the team came to a berth in the Stanley Cup Finals last season, and the acquisition of perennial 30+ goal scorer Rick Nash, many insiders were ranking this squad high among the favorites to [...]

Nash Will Not Make Trip to Ottawa

According to Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record, Rick Nash, who did not practice today, will not accompany his teammates on their trip to face the Ottawa Senators tomorrow night. Gross adds that the team hasn't ruled out that Nash could meet-up with them in Montreal for the game Saturday night. John Tortorella was obviously not very forthcoming with injury details (via...

Avs May Have Asked for Miller or Kreider Along With Del Zotto for O'Reilly

Yesterday, I posted a report that the Colorado Avalanche had talked to the Rangers about a trade including Michael Del Zotto and more for Ryan O'Reilly. Well, Adrian Dater at the Denver Post now says the "more" was likely J.T. Miller or Chris Kreider. ...LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do I even need to comment on this ridiculousness? If Colorado really...

Powe Injury Likely Means Kreider Stays

When Brian Boyle was a healthy scratch during the Rangers three game winning streak, a number of readers wondered how he'd ever get back into the lineup. My response...those things just work themselves out. And it looks like that's exactly what happened last night with the head injury to Darroll Powe. While you never like to see anyone being led off the ice with the dazed...

Brooks: Rangers not in on O’Reilly (Update: Asking price includes Del Zotto)

Update 2/18/13: Elliotte Friedman says that the Rangers spoke to the Avs over the weekend regarding O’Reilly, but balked at the asking price. The Avs were asking for Michael Del Zotto and either Chris Kreider or J.T. Miller. Clearly, the Avs are living in a fantasy world where they believe they have leverage with their star-in-the-making forward. Del Zotto is obviously a non-starter...

Mashinter In; Kreider Out

Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Brandon Mashinter will make his Rangers debut tonight vs. the Candiens. This means that Chris Kreider will be a healthy scratch for the third straight game. ...how pumped am I!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really hoping Torts gives the kid more than three minutes. Guess that all depends on how he performs. You heard it here first. Mashinter...

The Head-Shots Keep Coming

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, So this is what the NHL has as a matter of entertainment, after at least three times within a week codifying as legal checks, on which the attacking player finishes off his opponent with a forearm or elbow that drives his prey into the glass or boards. The NHL has a quagmire like last night’s aesthetically displeasing match at the...

Powe on IR; Kreider/Mashinter Alternate on Fourth Line

Katie Strang at ESPN.com reports that Darroll Powe has been placed on the IR with a concussion. There is no timetable for his return. ...huge blow for the Rangers. Powe's acquisition not only improved the Rangers penalty kill, it also allowed Torts the comfort of playing four lines as he gelled real nicely with Asham and Halpern. Still have no idea how Sather got him for...

Strict salary structure key to Rangers’ success

Bringing on Ryan O’Reilly would upset the Rangers’ salary structure For years financial ineptitude crippled the Rangers franchise, but what was once an enormous weakness has turned into the backbone of the organization’s success. Last week I advocated for the possibility of trading for Ryan O’Reilly (before news of Colorado’s asking price of Michael Del Zotto + Chris Kreider...

More Offense

If the New York Rangers want to have any kind of chance to both get into the postseason and go far in them, they will need a lot more offense. In Tuesday night's 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, the Blueshirts probably had one of their worst offensive performances. There was no sustained pressure, not enough pucks thrown at Canadiens' netminder Carey Price and not enough...
