Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that if the Rangers are going to deal for Columbus' Rick Nash, and sources say Glen Sather is interested, the Blue Jackets will demand Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and a No. 1 pick.Nash, who's topped 40 goals twice in his career, has just 18g, 20a this season. Nash is under contract until 2018 with a $7.8 million yearly cap hit....apparently the Blue Jackets GM has mental issues if he thinks the Sather would agree to that deal....while it would be tough, I'd be ok with Dubinsky being part of a deal for Nash, but as soon as Kreider's name is involved this deal would be dead on arrival for me. Especially after what I witnessed from the Rangers #1 prospect Friday night....Nash is an incredible talent, but his numbers have been on the decline. And that contract will destroy the Rangers ability to re-sign key players (McD, MDZ, Callahan) down the road. This has all the makings of a "what was Sather thinking" trade for ...

Going into the 2011-12 season, there was little doubt that winger Ryan Callahan would be named the newest captain of the New York Rangers organization. As we’ve seen year after year, Callahan epitomizes everything it means to don the Broadway Blueshirt, and a guy like that is easy to be motivated and inspired by. Essentially, he fit the description of a captain to a T, and through...
Ryan Callahan scored three goals, helping the New York Rangers continue their dominance over Philadelphia with a 5-2 victory on Saturday.
Marian Gaborik and Artem Anisimov also had goals for the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers, who've won seven straight against the Flyers.
It was a rare display on special teams that catapulted the Rangers to their second victory over Philadelphia...
from Jonathan Willis of The Cult Of Hockey, It was only this evening that the most connected man in hockey, TSN’s Bob McKenzie said on national television that “Rick Nash, to our knowledge, is not available.” It struck me as a sane comment in what is generally an insane time.
So I’m very surprised to write that things appear to have changed.

Jesse Spector at the Sporting News has Marc Staal's first hand account of his concussion recovery..."In the spring, I would wake up and feel groggy, have a headache now and then. I wasn't dizzy. I was functional. I wasn't playing great, I was playing OK. It was one of those things trying to get through it and play through it. I learned my lesson that you don'...
As we've discussed here on the blog in the past, the Rangers' dominance of the Atlantic Division this season has been key to their push to the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference. In particular, though, the Blueshirts have been stellar against their biggest rivals in the Philadelphia Flyers this year. In four games against Philly this season, including the Winter...

COLUMBUS, Ohio- The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated defenseman James Wisniewski after he was sidelined for 17 games with a broken ankle.
Usually when it’s the day of a Rangers game, and we all are scouring through Twitter to find out who the scratches will be, perhaps even what the lines will be, all of us usually have the same main objective. Is Henrik playing? When we find out Biron is in net, there is usually this [...]
Another day, another game against the Flyers, another win against the Flyers. That makes it five for five against the Blueshirts against their division rivals. This game was owned by Callahan, Richards, and Gaborik, but special teams were the difference. The Rangers killed off all four of their penalties, and capitalized on three (THREE!) powerplay opportunities. Let’s get to the...
