Ryan Callahan rightfully was the player everyone gushed about tonight. He had an outstanding game, borderline spectacular, scoring 2 goals, nabbing a helper, and leading the Rangers to victory. But the player my eyes seemed glued to tonight was Wojtek Wolski. No, not because of how he cost us the game against the Sens. The reason I kept my eyes on him was because of the way he commanded the play. He seemed to make the right decision with the puck almost every time he touched it, he played a damn hard game, and really seemed to complete the line with Stepan and Gaborik very well. Granted, he actually played pretty well against the Sens, but of course, that penalty single handedly cost the Rangers the W in my opinion.

Rangers Lack of Effort An Indictment On Team Leadership?

Nick Laham/Getty Images The New York Rangers 3-3-3 record to start the season leaves much to be desired.  Worse yet is that the level of play on the ice isn’t even worthy of that mediocre record.  The Rangers are lacking a lot of things on both ends of the ice to open the season, but beyond the offensive and defensive problems they seem to be lacking any sense...

No Further Discipline For Wolski?; Rupp, Anisimov, Del Zotto Missing At Practice

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun tweeted that there is no disciplinary hearing scheduled for Wojtek Wolski in regards to his high hit on Daniel Alfredsson yesterday, so he does not believe there will be any further discipline. Somewhat surprising given the call on the ice and the fact that Alfredsson is out today because of the hit, but good news for the Rangers as Wolski was instrumental...

What’s Mike Keenan Doing?

I had some expectations for this Rangers team this season. It’s a team that made the playoffs last year and essentially replaced the aging injury riddled former captain Chris Drury with superstar center Brad Richards.
