PLAYERS: Marc Staal
TEAMS: New York Rangers
Simply put, Marc Staal doesn't want to go through what now former teammate Ryan Callahan went through, an exaggerated and elongated contract negotiation.By Nyr3188 via Wikimedia Commons"You can say all you want that it's not on your mind and it's not a distraction, but it's something that has to weigh on you," Staal told the New York Post. "For me, the contract situation is definitely something I would like to take care of over the summer," the star defenceman said, who has one season at $3.975 million left after this. "That's the goal, but that also has to be the way management looks at it, too, in order to get it done.Including Staal, the Rangers have 11 other players conscripted for next season who'll cost just north of $53 million. What might it cost to re-sing the alternate captain? No figures have been released by other side, but it would be reasonable to suspect that something more than five million and less than seven million ...

Quick lineup change: Dorsett in for Carcillo

Per Pat Leonard, Derek Dorsett will be taking Dan Carcillo’s spot in the lineup tonight against Carolina. Dorsett’s last game was March 5th against Toronto. This move might make some people angry considering Carcillo’s strong play with the Rangers, but Dorsett is the more balanced player. His ability to take shifts in the defensive zone late in the game –not to mention his...

Ryan Callahan: I wanted to stay with the Rangers

Former Rangers captain Ryan Callahan says he never thought he would get traded. “Yeah, I wanted to stay there. I thought I was going to. The whole time in my head I never thought about getting traded or leaving at free agency time,” Callahan said to New York’s WFAN Radio on Wednesday. “My goal was to get something done with New York. Unfortunately, it’s the part of the...

Time for Martin St. Louis to step up in New York

Time for Martin St. Louis to step up in New YorkSo here we are, four games into the Martin St. Louis era in New York, and the Rangers are still spinning their tires. The offensive outburst has yet to come, the power play surge has yet to be seen, and the wins, the points, the very progress of this team is as inconsistent as ever. If St. Louis does in fact make this team better, as...

The reasons for keeping Cam Talbot beyond this year are adding up

Talbot’s cap hit is just $565,500 next season When Henrik Lundqvist re-signed with the Rangers for seven years, $59.5 million on December 4, one of the possible dominoes was the team trading backup goalie Cam Talbot this summer. Talbot has produced at probably an unsustainable level. With just one season separating the 26-year-old from unrestricted free agency, you have to assume...

Playing hockey in New York has afforded Carl Hagelin the opportunity to upgrade his style. Along with his New York Rangers teammates, he’s attended Fashion Week shows and worked with top designers. When discussing his evolved fashion sense since being in New York, he previously told 5th at 58th: “I’m starting to pay better attention to what I wear, as the shopping in NYC...

Game 65: Lundqvist eyes Richter against Carolina

Photo: Star Ledger The Rangers need another two points against Carolina tonight. That much is a given. But there is another story happening here. Henrik Lundqvist notched win #300 against Detroit on Sunday, and he goes for Mike Richter’s Ranger-record #301 tonight. Hank and Richter are the only two goaltenders in Rangers history with 300 wins, and it is a lock that Hank will eventually...

If you're a model and you allow a radio host to stick a golf tee in your ass you should be precluded from suing said host

Model Liz Dickson is suing Playboy & Kevin Klein, co-host of the Playboy Morning Show, seeking $500,000 and "punitive damages" for battery and negligence. Why? Because she allowed him to stick a golf tee in her ass and when he went to hit the ball, he instead hit her, according to the lawsuit.Dickson agreed to have a photo taken of her lying on her stomach "with...

Game 66: Minny is good, please don’t come out flat again

I felt like finding the most dated picture I could (Jim McIsaac/Getty Images North America). The Rangers came out flat in Carolina, and they were just dominated in every facet of the game. They didn’t deserve to win that game, but they can’t repeat that kind of effort tonight against a dangerous Minnesota team. I use the term dangerous loosely, as they can’t score, but they...

Game 65 By the Numbers: Rangers at Hurricanes

There are some games where you'll catch a team on an off-night and this was the case with the Hurricanes 3-1 win over the Rangers. After all, this is the same team that wiped the floor with the Hurricanes on Friday night and is much better than them in terms of skill and depth. You wouldn't know that from watching last night's game, though because the Hurricanes controlled...
