If Glen Sather has proven anything this season it’s that he’s never in a hurry to get his free agents signed to an extension. And now it looks like we can add Brian Boyle to the list (via New York Post)… “I’m also using my contract situation as motivation,” Boyle explained. “I tried to see what was up [regarding an extension], and they wanted to push it back, so being a free agent at the end of the season, I want to play well. “It’s a huge incentive from a personal standpoint.

Ryan McDonagh’s case for the Norris

Photo Credit: LoHud If there is one award that is up in the air this year, it is the Norris Trophy for best defenseman. Only once in the post-Lidstrom era has a purely offensive defenseman (Erik Karlsson) won the award, but the award does generally lean towards those with pretty offensive numbers (although that’s clearly not the only criteria, or else Mike Green would have won...

How About Some MickyDs With Your Playoffs? Ryan McDonagh, That Is

Ryan McDonagh (1 G, 2 A, 3 SOG, +3, 2 PIM) lead the way for the streaking Rangers scoring the game winner in OT. He also dished out two primary assists, ended up plus-3 and even threw in a couple PIM to make the game complete. I didn’t think he’d get there, but McDonagh is looking at breaking the 50-point/15 goal markers this season and that easily sits him among the league...
