Found October 15, 2013 on Blue Seat Blogs:
In the worst kept secret of the 2013-2014 season so far, the Rangers have officially called up goalie Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller (per the AHL Transaction Log). This was originally revealed by Melissa of Black & Blueshirts, as she attended a Hartford Wolfpack meet and greet in which only Talbot and Miller were absent. The moves were expected, although some may find it interesting that the Rangers only called up one forward. It looks like they will roll 11 forwards and 7 defensemen for the time being. A pair of roster spots opened when the Rangers waived Martin Biron and Arron Asham yesterday. Tweet

Dan Girardi’s motivation to be better

Dan Girardi has been poor so far. Dan Girardi has had an atrocious start to the season but yet is one of the key players the Rangers will have to rely on to turn their difficult start around. While plus/minus is not a particularly accurate statistic, his minus 7 rating is a bad indicator and Girardi’s decision making, positioning and overall game thus far have been far from his...

Biron, Asham sent to AHL by Rangers

Veteran goalie Martin Biron and rugged forward Arron Asham are being assigned by the New York Rangers to Hartford of the AHL after clearing waivers. The moves were announced on Tuesday, one day after the players were placed on waivers following New York's rough 1-4 start to the season. The Rangers recalled center J.T. Miller and goalie Cam Talbot from Hartford to replace them...

Nash placed on IR

Per Pat Leonard, the Rangers have placed concussed winger Rick Nash on injured reserve. The move is a paperwork move, and it allows the Rangers an extra roster spot to call up an additional forward for Wednesday’s game in Washington after waiving Arron Asham. It is expected that the Rangers will call up one or both of J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider. Note that this is not LTIR, the...

Rosen: Leetch almost returned to Rangers

Dan Rosen at had an interesting nugget of information this morning, noting that “Brian Leetch was prepared to move back to New York to join Mark Messier on the New York Rangers’ coaching staff” should Messier win the head coaching job in New York. Leetch would have been one of Messier’s assistants, likely –my assumption– working with the defensemen and the...

Asham, Biron clear waivers

Per Pierre LeBrun, both Arron Asham and Martin Biron have cleared waivers. Both will be (have not at the moment) assigned to the Hartford Wolfpack of the AHL. However, Biron has hinted he might retire instead. Can’t blame him, he’s got a family to think about. Tweet

Foreshadowing moves to come

One or both of Miller and Kreider are expected to be recalled today. After Arron Asham and Martin Biron were placed on waivers yesterday, there was a lot of discussion about what moves the Rangers would be making. I heard everything from a trade (no specifics, just “they are going to make a trade”) to a much more rational call up. In my humble opinion, the Rangers aren’t going...

NY Rangers place Rick Nash on IR with concussion

Monday was a tough day for the Rangers and they didn’t even play a game. Coach Alain Vigneault said after practice in Greenburgh that right wing Rick Nash “is still feeling some symptoms” from Tuesday’s concussion in San Jose and the team placed Nash on injured reserve. “Until I hear otherwise I don’t expect him back” Vigneault said. Nash has missed two games already...

Rangers Making Some Moves

from Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants, As was indicated after Saturday’s 5-3 loss at St. Louis, the Rangers certainly do have questions about Marty Biron’s suitability to be their backup goalie this season. GM Glen Sather said today as the Rangers began their noon practice that Biron and right wing Arron Asham are indeed both on waivers today. There is a 24-hour period prior...

Update – Rick Nash placed on IR, still has symptoms

According to sources including ESPN the New York Rangers have place Rick Nash on the injured reserve list. After being the subject of a high hit from Brad Stuart, defenseman of the San Jose Sharks, Rick Nash is still not skating after nearly a week. This however is not the worst part. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault explained, according to the team’s Twitter account that...

What’s in Store From 1993-94? Rangers Cruise Past Sabres for Third Straight Win

October 15th, 1993, The Aud, Buffalo, NY:  The Rangers took on the Sabres in Northern, NY looking for their third consecutive win.  After his relief appearance helped the Rangers climb out of a three goal deficit, backstopping the Rangers to all three wins thus far; Glenn Healy was back in net.  With the Rangers power […]

Rangers waive Aaron Asham and Martin Biron

The New York Rangers are off to a simply abysmal start with a 1-4-0 record and a minus-16 goal differential so something has to change. On Monday GM Glen Sather made the first moves. Joining the waiver wire on Monday were forward Arron Asham as well as veteran backup goaltender Martin Biron. Biron being cut is a surprise even though his numbers are as bad as you'll see in the...

Benoit Pouliot/Derick Brassard/Mats Zuccarello Line

Just like in the world of sports anything can change in an instant, so I learned it can also happen to a writer. I had intentions of writing on the success and predictable success for the future of the Benoit Pouliot, Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello line. I and the rest of Ranger Nation could […]

Jeff Malcolm promoted to AHL

In response to Cam Talbot being recalled to the Rangers and Martin Biron deciding his future since demotion, the Hartford Wolfpack have promoted goalie Jeff Malcolm from the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors. Malcolm was part of the first round of cuts from Rangers camp in September, and then was cut from Hartford two weeks later. The ECHL has not started their season yet, so there...

What, What, What, Episode III: The Blue Shirts Backup Botheration

The Rangers slide continues after dropping a 5 – 3 decision in St. Louis Saturday as backup net minder Marty Biron struggled in goal for the Blue Shirts. That’s the bad news. The good news is the Rangers did play better and the game offered plenty for this edition of “What, What, What.” What I […]

Game 6: Right the ship

(AP Photo/Charles Krupa) The Rangers have lost three in a row, two in epic fashion, and now stand at 1-4 to start the season. Most of us said we would be happy with a 4-4-1 start to the season, considering the road trip. That’s still doable, but it begins tonight with a win against a Washington Capitals team that is also struggling. Their powerplay is lethal though, so it’s a...
