By Bob Crawford Twenty-eight-year-old defenseman Danny Syvret, a veteran of eight seasons in pro hockey, came to the New York Ranger organization July 1, in a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers for Kris Newbury.  Syvret, who had spent much of the previous five seasons in the Philadelphia organization, had been through the process of being traded before, but is particularly enthused about coming into the Ranger fold. “I’m pretty excited,” he said.  “For me, I’ve sort of jumped around a bit on a couple of different teams, so it’s nothing really new to me, but every new team you go to is exciting.  I went to Ranger (training) camp when I was 19, and one of my close buddies, Brandon Prust, was a player for the Rangers and I still keep in touch with (former Junior hockey teammate) Dan Girardi and Mike Del Zotto, so I’ll have some familiar faces when I come to camp.” Syvret and Girardi enjoyed great success together in the Ontario Hockey League, winning a Memorial Cup, the cha...

Master Plan: New York Rangers roster in 2013 & beyond

For several off-seasons running, I’ve been creating these “master plans” that talk about the future rosters of the Rangers. The purpose of these posts is to really come full circle on all of the topics and rumors we’ve been covering over the course of the season. During prior offseasons, creating these plans was pretty easy for me as John Tortorella frequently talked about...

Rangers lack cap room now, but are positioned well for next summer

Glen Sather should have plenty of financial flexibility next summer Whether the Rangers re-sign Mats Zuccarello or not, they’re going to be right up against the salary cap ceiling when the 2013-2014 season opens.  Things are tight financially for New York right now, but 12 months from now the situation will be very different. According to CapGeek, the Rangers have barely over...

New York Rangers missing identity

A year ago, the New York Rangers were feared by every other team in the N.H.L . Their style of play using body checks and young speed in front of Lundqvist allowed them to punish their opponents. If they didn’t bring the intensity at the start someone (Brandon Prust most likely) would drop the gloves and the Rangers game came back to life. After this dismal locked out season, the...

Locking Up McDonagh First Piece Of Sather’s Puzzle

Last week, the Rangers officially agreed to a new six-year, $28.2 million contract extension with restricted free agent defenseman Ryan McDonagh, keeping the 24-year-old stud on Broadway likely through the prime years of his career.

Taylor Pyatt: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

When the Rangers traded Michal Rozsival to Phoenix in 2011, I – being one of the much-maligned Czech defenseman’s few supporters in Ranger circles – of course decided to keep tabs on him. So I ended up watching a fair number of Coyotes games, in the process familiarizing myself with much of their roster. While [...]

Reasonable Expectations: Jesper Fast

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images) The Rangers stand to have a number of prospects vying for NHL spots in the upcoming preseason, but worst case scenario they will have a number of younger players playing prominent roles in the AHL in Hartford. One of the harder players to gauge is Jesper Fast. Exceptionally quick, and fresh off a strong SEL campaign, Fast has been playing...

With the draft complete, a determination already made on Brad Richards' status for 2013-14 and most of what the Rangers will do in free agency having passed, I figured this was a good time to get back to the 20+ offseason questions I posted here. Today, I will cover one that has been a major topic of discussion, but one that is still undecided and I hope gets resolved sooner...

Talking Changes To Goalie Equipment

from Kevin Woodley of InGoal Magazine, Henrik Lundqvist isn’t worried about the impending changes to goaltending equipment in the NHL – as long the New York Rangers’ star gets enough time to adjust to them. “If they change it, as long as I have the new gear early August it should be fine,” Lundqvist wrote in an email to InGoal Magazine from his native Sweden. ...

NHL Free Agency Follies

So once again Free Agency began and yet again there were loads of money being thrown around to them by various teams, surprisingly the Rangers not being among them.  One main reason is the Brad Richards contract, which handicaps the teams cap space for at least this season and the hope that he bounces back.  [...]
