Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Marc Staal will reassess with doctors beginning on Monday when he could be able to take contact in practice....wow, I've got to be honest I never thought this decision would be made so soon....i really felt he was going to end up sitting out the entire season. If he gets the go ahead he could be back in a few weeks....i know some Rangers fans are concerned that he might end up coming back too early but I have all the confidence in the world in the Rangers training staff and there's no way they'd take a chance with him.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Editor’s Note: This post was written prior to the Rangers/Flyers game last night. The numbers reflected in Dubinsky’s shot total and shooting percentage may be different when this post is published. However, they should not be that far off, barring a 5 goal night for the struggling center/winger.

The Rangers blue line could look a lot different in the summer of 2012. There’s a chance that next season the Rangers will start six defensemen that have seen the ice this in New York season but don’t expect that six to include Steve Eminger, Anton Stralman and Jeff Woywitka.
All three journeyman pros have expiring contracts and are likely to be let go; at most one may be retained...
… As everyone knows, I have been a huge advocate of Carl Hagelin on the main Rangers roster since before the offseason. I have been highly impressed with his skill and speed. Nothing like having a burst of energy and youth on a roster that was without it for so many seasons. Stu Bickel was [...]
Marian Gaborik is your new goal-scoring leader.
He got it done during Friday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers in the third period.
Gaborik notched his 21st of the season, separating himself from the pack, which consists of Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos and Phil Kessel, all with 20 goals.
Gaborik also has 11 assists this season and 32 points.
Matthew Wilson is...
The New York Rangers are in agreement that being in first place at the two-day Christmas break doesn't guarantee anything come April.
But after three wins in four nights against Atlantic Division foes, the Broadway Blueshirts are more than happy to be on top of the pack.

Just when you thought nothing could possibly top last week's premier episode of HBO's 24/7: Road to the NHL Winter Classic series, episode 2 stole the spotlight by a mile. Really, that was an extraordinary 60 minutes of television - maybe the best I've ever seen.
In episode two we get to see a lot more of the off-ice stuff, which is really what 24/7 is geared to...
