As luck would have it, I was fortunate this past weekend to shake hands with budding star and Rangers rookie, Chris Kreider. Along with other NHL players, Kreider graciously donated his time at a local charity event sponsored by Rick Nash’s former Columbus Blue Jacket teammate, Cam Atkinson, in Greenwich, Connecticut. So, coincidentally, what better way to feed off of that adrenaline rush than to expound upon how Chris and the rest of New York's youthful "Core” quintet can contribute to the Rangers' success this season.
As if he didn’t need any more press clippings after winning not one but two Boston College NCAA Championships - garnering MVP honors for the latter one – Kreider's highly anticipated arrival last April was welcomed with open arms. Jumping right into playoff action after minimal practice time with his new teammates, Kreider's presence was immediately felt via his lethal combination of speed, conscientious defensive play and dea...

Although the Rangers are likely to benefit from a lockout –due to the injury to Marian Gaborik– there is still a solid chance that when the season starts, the club will still be without their top scorer from last season. Gaborik, who had shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum in June, is said to be out five or six months recovering from the surgery.
The acquisition of Rick...
On January 21, 2012, the New York Rangers gave notice to the rest of the NHL that they had arrived.
Just three weeks prior in the Winter Classic, the Atlantic Division was alerted that the Blueshirts were a legitimate contender and not going away anytime soon, as they took down the Flyers to continue their unbeaten streak against their Philadelphia foes for the season. But it was...
James O'Brien of Pro Hockey Talk breaks down a report courtesy of Craig Custance of ESPN in which teams would be in salary cap hell if the owners get the CBA in their model, which would lower the salary cap from $70 million to around $54 million. Here is the breakdown for the New York Rangers:Rangers: Would be $13.1M above $54M.
Custance assumes that New York would need...
In an attempt to take our minds off of the inevitable lockout, let’s turn our focus to the Rick Nash acquisition and if he will play with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik.
The concept of a “super” line with these three sure is enticing. After all, it worked in Ottawa with Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, and Dany Heatly. It has worked in the past with Sidney Crosby, Evgeny...
The New York Rangers have had a fairly impressive offseason, finally landing Rick Nash in a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets and re-signing many of their top players from last year’s squad that reached the Eastern Conference Finals. While they are hopeful that negotiations will go well with Michael Del Zotto over the next couple of weeks, the Rangers know that...
How ironic it is that D-Day for the National Hockey League and Decision Day for the electorate of the United States of America will come somewhere around the same time of year? After all, we’re talking about two events with some eerily similar characteristics. At the end of the day, there is one side claiming a set of “new” ideas not unlike the ideas that already exist,...
The Rangers will have the Greenville Road Warriors as their ECHL affiliate for at least one more season.

August is always the toughest month for hockey fans. The Rangers season officially ended in late May but June provided us the draft and the intrigue of free agency. In July fans had free agent signings to keep our hockey-crazed minds occupied. In August there’s almost nothing going on to fill the emptiness that comes [...]

Chris Kreider (Blueshirts United)
Forgive me as I am so turned off by the recent labor issues in hockey that I badly needed a real hockey fix. I got it and it got me thinking about the future of the game rather than it's current mess of a present.
It is so nice to start off with news about 3 top prospects of the New York Rangers and New York Islanders. Chris Kreider (NYR...
