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...

Prospects with a chance to make the team

As the offseason turns to August, and the rosters begin to take shape, the attention turns away from those with guaranteed roster spots and towards the many prospects within the system that are all competing to be that sleeper in camp. Last year Stu Bickel was that sleeper, and Carl Hagelin was the mid-season call up that many expected he would be. This year there aren’t as many...

Should Rangers Fans Be Worried About Del Zotto Contract Status?

Amidst this very good offseason for the New York Rangers that has included acquiring Rick Nash to upgrade the top six, there's one move left to be done: locking up RFA defenseman Michael Del Zotto to a new deal. Whether you agree or not, Del Zotto's offensive talents are one of the keys for the Rangers to be successful and, with his 2011-12 campaign, we saw an improved defensive...

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 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...

Kreider, Doan, or both

The Rangers top six (health allowing) looks a lot more intimidating these days, thanks to Rick Nash’s arrival. It’s amazing what one addition can do to change people’s perceptions. That said, the Rangers continue to be linked with Shane Doan and on the right deal he’d be another welcome upgrade but Doan is a mistake waiting to happen. The arrival of a declining but still...
