Rick Nash's class was on full display last week as he took out a full page ad thanking Blue Jackets fans for their support over the years, now Down Goes Brown unearths Scott Gomez's "thank you" to Rangers fans that for some reason wasn't printed in any of the New York papers......bravo DGB, bravo....assuming Canadiens fans didn't find this as funny as I did.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.

The Del Zotto contract scenario

With the Rick Nash acquisition and the changing faces among the Rangers bottom six forwards the Rangers roster has undergone considerable change. Glen Sather appears to have made most of his moves when factoring in the new contracts handed out to players such as Anton Stralman. Barring a Shane Doan arrival the last significant move the Rangers GM must make is re-signing Michael Del...

Three Rangers Prospects Shooting for Team USA Junior Roster Spots

It was announced yesterday that New York Rangers prospects J.T. Miller (2011 1st round pick), Brady Skjei (2012 1st round pick) and Steven Fogarty (2011 3rd round pick) have all been selected for Team USA’s final 2012 National Junior Evaluation Camp roster. Team USA will be going up against Sweden and Finland in a duo of exhibition matches this week in Lake Placid, and it is in...

Rangers Seeking Second Pairing Defenseman?

Rangers beat writer Jim Cerny hosts weekly chats on Blueshirts United and of course the topic of defense came up. With Erixon's departure and Michael Sauer's status still up in the air, the Rangers are still lacking a defenseman (unless Tortorella is happy to play Stu Bickel 3 minutes per game for the entire season). Per Cerny, the Rangers are attempting to solve that issue...

Chris Kreider to Win the Calder Trophy Next Season?

Just Bourne of Backhand Shelf has a piece giving five reasons why he believes Rangers rookie Chris Kreider will win the Calder next season for best NHL rookie, citing age, experience, size, linemates and draft class. This year’s draft saw defensemen selected with eight of the first 10 picks. While defensemen are certainly capable of winning the Calder Trophy, the position just...

New York Rangers Rumors: Rangers a Favorite to Land Shane Doan

According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, the New York Rangers are a favorite to land Phoenix Coyotes’ Shane Doan. “The Rangers’ strengths include their formidable roster but also Doan’s connections with their coaching staff: Assistant GM/assistant coach Jim Schoenfeld coached Doan for two seasons in Phoenix (1997-98 and 1998-99), with John [...] [[ This is a...

Talking Rangers Prospects With Brock Otten

A few weeks ago I talked to Cody Nickolet of WHL From Above about NYR prospects in the WHL, and it went very well. So, I decided to get in touch with Brock Otten, who closely follows the Ontario Hockey League and writes a blog aptly called OHL Prospects. He is reviewing how each NHL team's prospects did in the OHL the previous season, and while his Rangers review is very good...

Rangers Would Match an Offer Sheet for Del Zotto

Yesterday, I wrote about whether or not Ranger fans should be worried about Michael Del Zotto still being unsigned and the threat of an offer sheet by Philadelphia in the wake of losing Andrej Meszaros.Sam Carchidi, Flyers beat writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer, answered a tweet on this very subject and should ease any worries fans may have.“@8mjm8: @broadstbull offer sheet...

Rangers In on Doan?

After landing the player they have wanted for a long time in Rick Nash, the New York Rangers might be at it again, this time with UFA Shane Doan. In last weekend’s New York Post, Larry Brooks wrote the following: Depth has been compromised. Dependency on young Chris Kreider and Carl Hagelin to accelerate the learning curve is not insignificant. If the season starts on or close...

Henrik Lundqvist about to get a marketing push

One of my biggest complaints about the business of hockey is that the game’s biggest superstars receive very little notoriety away from the rink. Part of the problem lies with the league for not doing enough to market its stars beyond the Crosbys and Ovechkins of the world, but part of the problem also falls back on the players and their agents for not seeking more off ice opportunities...

The Philadelphia Flyers Have Had A Bad Summer

The offseason is an import time for all. It can be a time for teams to regroup after a disappointing season, or a time when a team tries to keep a gelled team together and intact for a another run at a Stanley Cup. It is hard to say who the winners are due to the various ways you can look at the summer’s results. A few candidates could be the Los Angeles Kings have kept a Stanley...

Addressing The Sabres’ Recruiting Problem

What do Brad Richards, Rick Nash, Zach Parise, Gary Suter, and Shane Doan have in common?  Besides being NHL superstars, the Buffalo Sabres weren’t mentioned as serious contenders to land any of them. Joe Pinzone of Buffalo Wins thinks he knows why, and so do I.  In episode 4 of our 5-part audio series, we each give one main reason why the goal of Terry Pegula to make Buffalo...

Jan Levine: Is Doan Down to Three (or Four) Teams?

Per Larry Brooks' column yesterday - which mainly focused on how the Rick Nash acquisition changes the tenor of the Rangers - Shane Doan may have narrowed his focus down to three teams. (With all due respect to Garth and his daily or minute by minute update - I present the below blog) Per Brooks, those teams are New York, Pittsburgh and Vancouver. Brooks excludes Phoenix...
