Jonathan Ragus, Glen Miller and Christopher Decker returned on Sunday with Ranger Nation Radio, on its new permanent home on the Fan Junkies Radio Network, to talk about the fans desire to see New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella fired.

Back in the offseason I spoke frequently about the Rangers need to acquire players who fit their team template. The three main ingredients needed to restock the Rangers were roster balance, skating, and effort. As the deadline approaches, the Rangers should stick to those three ingredients when evaluating their own team and what’s available on the marketplace.
As for Tortorella...
The first question everyone was asking after Marc Staal took a vicious puck to the eye was whether he was OK. The next question was whether he would start wearing a visor.
Hurricanes center Jordan Staal spoke about his brother Monday and said Marc is working his way back from the injury. He also had some inside information on the visor question.

The Rangers succeeded last year because they executed. They followed the system, they executed and they won. Many are looking at the coaching staff for the three game slide, but in reality it’s about execution from the players.
It’s been widely known that coach Tortorella uses a 2-1-2 forecheck, which is not a defensive system. It’s a bit of a misnomer...

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Three Carolina Hurricanes defensemen were hurt Tuesday night during a game against the Florida Panthers.
Bobby Sanguinetti appeared to take a skate to the face, and Justin Faulk sustained an apparent right leg injury shortly before Tim Gleason was hit with a high stick.

The Tampa Bay Lightning were able to get some goals on the board in a crucial division win Saturday night over the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1. The Bolts were ignited by the play of their rookies. Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat set the offensive examples for the game with the goals. “I thought Johnson, Palat and Tyrell gave us momentum from their shift on the ice,” coach Guy...
The Rangers have hit a speed bump in their season, dropping three straight in ugly fashion to the Sabres, Jets, and Penguins. While losing to the Penguins is par for the course for the Eastern Conference, the Rangers had four points slip through their fingers against Winnipeg and Buffalo. While everyone is hellbent on blaming the coach, Marian Gaborik, Brad...

Before the puck dropped on the 2012-13 season, it wasn't hard to find prognosticators willing to say the New York Rangers were going to win the Stanley Cup. On this web site alone, six experts picked the Rangers to reach their first Cup Final since 1994 with three of them choosing the Rangers to win it all.
It wasn't tough to see why the...
Bad games happen over the course of the year and the Hurricanes have had their share of them this season, but their 4-1 loss to the Panthers tonight my have been the absolute low point of the season. It wasn't so much the fact that they lost but more that they were outplayed and outworked by a Florida team who had won only two out of their last ten games coming into tonight....
