Oscar Lindberg, fast becoming a top prospect for the Rangers
Perhaps lost among the anticipation of the NHL’s Saturday return to action are Ranger prospects Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fasth continuing their excellent seasons in the Swedish Elite League. Some people are concerned about the Rangers depth heading into the new season but beyond this year it appears the Rangers will...
A depth forward could be on the radar for the Rangers.
Looking over the Rangers training camp roster, one thing that really stands out is the lack of depth, particularly on offense. Right now, the following has been reported as Torts’ early line combos.
Carl Hagelin – Brad Richards – Rick Nash
Marian Gaborik – Derek Stepan – Ryan Callahan
Waivers Rangers: Sean Collins, Michael Haley, Chad Kolarik, Kris Newbury, Logan Pyett, Brendon Segal, Mike Vernace, Tommy Grant.

Kolarik leads Whale with 15 goals and tied for team lead in points with 29.
...scratching my head at Kolarik being on that list. I was originally surprised when he wasn't in training camp...
Hockey will be back soon and finally we can start talking about the systems and strategies of this great game we all know and love. One of the most critical – and contested – aspects of the Rangers system in 2012 was their power play.
For the sake of brevity, I will just say that last year’s mediocre power play was not due to coaching decisions or their umbrella formation...
According to Melissa Andus at Black and Blueshirts, the AHL transaction list reports that the Rangers have recalled Brandon Segal.
Segal has 9g, 7a in 38 games with the Whale this season.
The 29-year old Segal has played 102 NHL games with Tampa, Dallas and Los Angeles.
...with Asham suspended for the first game and Bickel likely to take is spot on the wing, this is a...
Katie Strang at ESPN.com reports that the NHLPA is reviewing the developing situation between Wade Redden and Rangers in which the Blueshirts will sit the veteran defenseman for the remainder of the season to ensure he is not injured and jeopardize their ability to buy him out this summer.
The Rangers have also been in contact with the league. The Canadiens have deployed the...

Question: Which team do you expect to challenge the Penguins for the most points in the Eastern Conference?
The New York Rangers rang up four times more votes than any other Eastern Conference squad. The Rangers collected 62 percent of votes while runner-up Philadelphia finished with 15 percent. New York ended up with one more point than P...
Portland, ME, January 15, 2013 – Kris Newbury scored two goals, and Cam Talbot made 29 saves, as the Connecticut Whale rolled to a 6-1 win over the Atlantic Division-leading Portland Pirates Tuesday night at the Cumberland County Civic Center.
Portland had won eight straight home games, tying a franchise record, and 13 of its previous 15 overall. The Whale won despite being...
If you were to ask people who they felt would be the first two amnesty buyouts under the NHL's new CBA, they probably would have said Wade Redden and Scott Gomez. Apparently lots of folks have ESP, or at the very least have been alive and conscious the past couple of years, because who will be the first two guys bought out? Why, Redden and Gomez, of course!
This is exactly how New York Rangers' fans should approach the upcoming 48-game shortened NHL season.
Last season, the Blueshirts shocked many and were one of the best teams in the entire league last season. They did it with great goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist, great defense, and a committment by the whole team to play well on both sides of the puck.
As mentioned yesterday, both Wade Redden and Scott Gomez are widely expected to be bought out at the end of this season. Both players are being told to go home, sit, and get paid for it -- the NHL's teams can't buyout injured players. While this is a smart strategy for the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, the NHLPA is taking issue with two of their players being told...
Rangers coach John Tortorella says it's the right time for Rick Nash to be in New York.
The franchise is going for its first Stanley Cup since 1994.
Nash improves the Rangers' chances.
On the other side of North America, the Vancouver Canucks can't wait to resume their quest for their first NHL title.
The Rangers, Canucks - and their fans - won't want to talk...
