Found July 15, 2014 on Save By Richter:
Lindberg in Hartford With the New York Rangers being in a bind with cap space currently, chances are they will take a chance bringing up some younger players to fill in roles when needed. They are short, especially when its comes to offense, on the 3rd and 4th lines and that’s where these players will fit in. Alain Vigneault has also mentioned wanting some younger players to get some time in the lineup as time goes on. Here is a breakdown of what you might see out of the younger players coming up through the Rangers system on offense and how they got to this point so far. Defensive players will be featured tomorrow. JT Miller, Center Miller is truly a center, but has seen some time both there and on the wing for the Rangers. He will be looked at to fill in at the center position at training camp. He played under the United States National Developmental Program for a few years before a point-per-game season with Plymouth of the OHL. He joined the Connecticut Whale for their playoff r...

What The Rangers RFA’s Will Cost

Although great to see the New York Rangers make a Stanley Cup Final run, it hurts more this offseason as all their RFA’s had strong regular seasons backed up with 13 playoff victories. Glen Sather knew the Rangers would not have much wiggle room with free agency after re-signing Chris Kreider, Derick Brassard, Mats Zuccarello, and John Moore to new contracts. Danny Boyle was the...

Projecting the Rangers’ 2014-2015 payroll, part three

Part One, Part Two One of the major concerns for next year is the payroll. The Rangers have a lot of money tied into a few players, and the club lost a lot of key players in free agency. Another major factor was that the cap ceiling, initially projected to be $71 million, was announced […] The post Projecting the Rangers’ 2014-2015 payroll, part three appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Report: Rick Nash, New York Rangers Not Interested In A Trade

Rick Nash was a massive disappointment during the New York Rangers’ run to the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, but his lack of scoring production won’t lead to an exit from the Big Apple. Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported on Sunday that neither the team nor Nash are looking to part ways. “But I’m here to tell you that a trade is not happening,” Brooks writes. “Nash has...

Danny Kristo signs qualifying offer

This news broke over the weekend, but 24-year-old forward Danny Kristo signed his qualifying offer, meaning the Rangers will retain his services for at least one more season. Kristo was acquired last summer in exchange for Christian Thomas, and put up 25-18-43 in 65 games with the Wolf Pack last season. Kristo appears to be […] The post Danny Kristo signs qualifying offer appeared...

Rangers sign forward Matt Lombardi

It appears that the Rangers have signed forward Matt Lombardi to a two-year contract. Injuries really hurt Lombardi’s NHL career, but he put up 20-30-50 in 46 games in the Swiss league last season. His last “full” NHL season was in 2011-2012, when he put up 8-10-18 with the Toronto Maple Leafs. That was two […] The post Rangers sign forward Matt Lombardi appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

JT Miller Should Get Huge Chance This Season

With the Rangers cap situation less than ideal, it’s not very likely that they’ll have the ability to replace both Brad Richards and Beniot Pouliot’s through free agency or a trade. While Glen Sather will most assuredly find a way to acquire a substitute for one of the two, it’s looking more and more likely JT Miller, along with his $894,167 per year salary, will be designated...

Priorities for free agency

After a week in Aruba (side note: awesome trip), I have noticed that the Rangers have not signed their RFAs yet (three filed for arbitration), and there appears to be a bit of a panic about this. It’s not a huge panic, the way there was over Derek Stepan a few years back, but there […] The post Priorities for free agency appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Rangers continue to swing and miss in free agency

What if I were to tell you that there was a free agent who would cost less than $1.5 million, could replace Brad Richard’s production, and may improve the power play. Is that something you might be interested in? If you’re the New York Rangers, the answer appears to be “meh, I’ll go sign Matthew Lombardi instead“. The player I’m alluding to above is Mike Ribeiro, who...

Summer 2014 New York Rangers’ Prospect Rankings: 36-25

I published my version of the New York Rangers’ prospect rankings in early January, which you can view here. A lot has changed since then. The prospects have since played for four-to-six months, depending on their schedule, and thus all have developed (or failed to) in different ways over that time. Aside from that, the Rangers have signed multiple prospects as free agents, drafted...

Rishaug: Rangers were in on Ribeiro

Per Ryan Rishaug, the Rangers had interest in center Mike Ribeiro before he signed in Nashville yesterday. The Rangers are lacking center depth and Ribeiro likely would have slotted in at the 2C position. Per Rishaug, no state tax in Tennessee helped sway Ribeiro, who signed for $1.05 million for one year. The post Rishaug: Rangers were in on Ribeiro appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.
