TSN takes a look at the best and worst unrestricted free agent signings so far this season and says this about Brad Richards not paying off for the Rangers..."The biggest free agent in the pond this summer was forward Brad Richards, who made a high profile move from Dallas to the New York Rangers. He was expected to drive their offence but the 31-year-old has given New York less than a point per game and has just four goals in 13 contests."...i was one of the biggest opponents of the Richards signing out there, but I 100% disagree with TSN. Richards has been everything and more. He has added a much needed scoring threat to the Rangers line-up to take some stress off of Gaborik and his much chronicled mentoring of Stepan and Del Zotto will go a long way towards solidifying the future of this organization....wait? did I just praise the Richards signing?Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BEST OF MAXIM
We had some technical difficulties with the blog last night, so we were unable to post a recap right after the game. Artem Anisimov was the star of last night’s game, even if he didn’t get the Broadway hat. Here are your truncated bullets:
Anisimov forced the turnover on the first goal, forced another turnover and got the puck to the net on the second goal, and made a simple...
While Anton Stralman did participate in his first practice with the Rangers today, Steve Zipay reports that he will not be in the line-up tomorrow when the Blueshirts face the Hurricanes at MSG.John Tortorella feels he needs a better understanding of the system....a little surprised with this decision. Thought Woywitka made a bad play on Ottawa's second goal last night and hasn...
Before the game I spoke about the lack of production beyond the top offensive line for the Rangers, despite the team being on a five-game winning streak at the time. Tonight, in their 5-1 defeat of the Carolina Hurricanes to make it six straight, the secondary scoring responded with an astounding performance and happened to score all five goals for New York. If you would've showed...
There seems to be a sentiment running through at least part
of the New York Rangers fan community that booing Eric Staal or even a Rangers’
player going after him is warranted when the Rangers take on the Hurricanes
tonight. Neither is deserved nor will it
do anything to get Marc Staal back on the ice any sooner. You can play up the hit as much as you like
… it’s amazing how a win changes the mood of Torts.
With the Rangers in the midst of a 5 game winning streak average price for tomorrow night’s game vs Carolina is up 24% this week, sitting at $214/ticket. Want to check out The Garden’s new look without it costing an arm and a leg? Thanks to TiqIQ’s “Pick Your Price” feature, with an offer of [...]
… AA totally deserves the Broadway Hat after the win against Ottawa. He absolutely had his best game of the season and should have had 3 assists on the night.
In a less than stellar game, the Rangers rode the G.A.S. line along with the continued fine of Dan Girardi plus solid goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist to their fifth straight victory; a 3-2 win over Ottawa on Wednesday.
For all the consternation that was given to coach John Tortorella moved Brad Richards down a line and Derek Stepan up to the top grouping; it's only fair...
