Garden Of Dreams Auctions

Got this in my email regarding Garden of Dreams auctions. These are all for a great cause: Meet Brad Richards After Watching Rangers Vs. Phoenix At The Garden •The last time Tortorella and Brad Richards teamed up, they won the 2004 Stanley Cup for Tampa, so there’s no question that their reunion in New York is stirring up some conversation. One lucky fan and a friend will get to...

Christensen Replaces Richards as First Line Center

Sadly, this is not a joke. Head coach John Tortorella switched the offensive lines up in practice again today (insert joke here), and in the process moved Erik Christensen up to the first line, where he centered Marian Gaborik and Wojtek Wolski. So, in place of the All-Star center in Brad Richards that was signed for an arm and a leg this summer, $925,000 Erik Christensen finds...

Balanced scoring huge asset for Stars

When the Dallas Stars let All-Star center Brad Richards leave the team via free agency over the summer, many wondered how the club would replace his point production in this, the first season under new head coach Glen Gulutzan. Almost from the moment Gully was hired to coach this team back in June, the answer was simple-scoring by committee. While there were a number of skeptics...

Rangers Blow Three Goal Lead, Lose To Senators 5-4 In Shootout

When Brad Richards scored 8:05 into the third period to give the New York Rangers a 4-1 lead many thought it was a safe two points in the standings for the team.  That assumption was a bad one as the Rangers absolutely collapsed in the second half of the third period giving up three goals in the final 10:42 of the game to send the game to overtime.  Milan Michalek netted...

Pregame: Rangers Hope to End Sens' Streak, Erase Thursday's Disaster

The Rangers' effort in their 2011-12 home opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday was disgraceful. Actually, maybe I am wrong in using the word "effort" to describe what happened that night because there simply was no effort beyond the first period of play. From top to bottom, everything with the Blueshirts' game was ugly, even the goaltending, which...

Lights on, Rangers' Richards is ready

John Tortorella believes so much in Brad Richards that he uses the veteran center as a barometer for younger Rangers. When second-year forward Derek Stepan earned his way onto the top line after two games, Tortorella said the 21-year-old was receiving the opportunity because he "gets it," because he understands how to play and carry himself as a professional at a young age.

Are the Rangers in Trouble?

The answer to that question is a resounding no. At 3-3-3, the New York Rangers certainly have not played their best in this young season and at the same time, have yet to click on all levels. That is the good thing. The bad thing is that the way has played in their last two games against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, both losses at Madison Square Garden. Their play...

Rangers break up Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik

(source feed provided no summary content for this entry)

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. Henrik Lundqvist is the best goalie in the world, our young home-grown guys like Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky were [...]

Blueshirt shakeup coming?

When the Rangers signed him to a nine-year, $60 million deal, center Brad Richards was supposed to be the missing piece of the puzzle that fit next to right wing Marian Gaborik. So far, however, he has fit like a square peg in a round hole.

On ice: Rangers blow it, fall in shootout

John Tortorella may be impatient over Brad Richards’ lack of chemistry with Marian Gaborik, but as Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators demonstrated, the Rangers have bigger problems.

Tortorella pre-game

First, he did not give out his lineup, or his lines, saying he wasn’t sure. (Andrew Gross loves when he says that, LOL). But he said it will probably be the same lineup as the home opener. He did say that Mike Rupp (knee) remains out. I asked him a few questions about the possible breaking-up of Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik—at practice yesterday Gaborik played with Erik...
