The Rangers Tribune:
Newly signed defenseman Anton Stralman has yet to make his debut as a New York Ranger despite being acquired by the team nearly a month ago, but it seems as if that time will come sooner than later. Yesterday in practice, head coach John Tortorella used Stralman on the struggling powerplay unit as a source of offense from the point. As I discussed yesterday, that powerplay could use any help it could get, so if the coach liked what he saw from Stralman, we could very well see the 25-year-old Swede make his Rangers debut tonight against the Florida Panthers.
I think part of the reason we haven't seen Stralman yet was because of the solid defense the team was playing already while on their seven-game winning streak. Also, as the coach stated several times, it was important that the Blueshirts had Stralman fully prepared to work under the system before just throwing him out there, and after a couple of weeks of practice I would imagine he is good to go from that standpoint.

Having an outstanding beginning to his professional career, Carl Hagelin is becoming an offensive weapon for the CT Whale in the AHL. With Hagelin contributing in every way imaginable, the question of whether he breaks the Rangers roster this year deserves to be raised.
With 12 points (7 goals) in 16 games and an outstanding +10 already, Hagelin is thriving on the ice. He’s...
No one expected the Rangers to win-out the rest of the season. That’s just a silly thought. But during their seven-game winning streak, which was snapped when they put up a clunker against the Montreal Canadiens, the Rangers showed signs of regaining the form that has made them succeed in the past. When their streak [...]

New York Rangers forward Andre Deveaux is likely to be
suspended for his elbow to the head of Tomas Fleischmann leaving the team in
need of another forward. The problem
with projecting either as the callup is the utter lack of knowledge as to what

You have to be slightly concerned. Not on the scale of the typical jump-off-the-bridge Ranger fan, no, but you should still be slightly worried about what unfolded tonight, coupled with the game against the Habs, and what has been going on for much of the season.
The troubling thing is NOT the lack of shots. I’ve never bought into that being a huge issue. It’s a little concerning...
The New York Rangers didn’t find the sense of urgency they
needed following their 4-0 loss Saturday and it cost them again as they fell
2-1 in Florida Wednesday night. The lack
of offense was obvious, but the Rangers are back to the utter lack of energy
and effort that was plaguing them to start the season as well. If that does not change quickly, then the
