Steve Zipay tweets that today a Rangers spokesperson said there is no update on Marc Staal's condition.Meanwhile, Jay Leonard at the Daily News says the fact that John Tortorella did not mention Staal's name once during his public comments on Tim Erixon's assignment and Michael Del Zotto's hip ailment (he'll play tonight) yesterday speaks volumes that more than three weeks into the season, the Rangers All Star defenseman seems to not even be in the discussion....we talk about the impact bringing Avery up to the Rangers will have, but there is nothing that will have a bigger effect on the Blueshirts than a return of Staal....having said that, I think Rangers fans need to prepare themselves for Staal not being with this team until at least after the All Start break maybe even the entire season.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at email@example.com.

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...

Sharks center "Jumbo" Joe Thornton has never been considered one of the NHL’s Bravehearts. A player his size should dominant play night after night . . . yet he plays a fairly passive game in most gamesSo this salvo at the Rangers after a 5-2 San Jose loss at New York seemed a bit out of place: “They were probably the softest team we played on the trip. We should have...

NEW YORK (AP) -- Sean Avery could rejoin the New York Rangers a lot sooner than expected after being placed on re-entry waivers by the team that has missed his grit early this season.
Sean Avery could rejoin the New York Rangers a lot sooner than expected after being placed on re-entry waivers by the team that has missed his grit early this season.
While 20-year-old rookie defenseman Tim Erixon returned to the AHL following the Rangers' 5-4 shootout loss to the Senators on Saturday as part of the grand plan, the Blueshirts apparently can't fit Mats Zuccarello into the plan as they are currently constructed.
Coach John Tortorella admitted "Zuccarello was the...
The Rangers gave themselves a blueprint for how to hold a lead in their first home victory of the young season: Get everyone involved. Four Blueshirts registered at least two points, led by captain Ryan Callahan (two goals, one assist), as the Rangers (4-3-3) snapped a two-game skid with a 5-2 win over San Jose (6-4-0) at the Garden. In the process, they ended a five-game winning...
OK, so he may not have physically been there, but Avery's presence was felt all the same. More »
The odyssey of Sean Avery continued on Tuesday, as the controversial forward cleared re-entry waivers and was recalled to the New York Rangers from their AHL affiliate in Connecticut.
Just one game on the Tuesday night schedule for either New York Rangers or New York Islander prospects but it is a big one. Kirill Kabanov's Shawinigan Cataractes will be hosting the Quebec Remparts.
In the meantime the good folks over at the Plymouth Whalers sent us a couple of items for your interest starting with a JT Miller interview.
