Before Friday’s draft it’s a good idea to take stock of what the Rangers already have in the system. If New York follows suit, then the Blueshirts will pick the best player available regardless of position. However, it’s worth evaluating where the team’s strengths lie, starting with a status update for the organization’s forwards.
J.A.M. burst onto the scene in 2011-2012 with a surprisingly strong showing at the Traverse City Tournament in September and he was only just getting started. Ryan Bourque’s old teammate with the QMJHL’s Quebec Ramparts earned a one-year contract with the Whale and made the most of the opportunity. He battled for the team points lead all season and finished with 64 (24 goals, 40 assists), tied for the team lead and good for third among AHL rookies. Audy-Marchessault still faces an uphill climb to the NHL thanks to his 5-foot-9, 175-pound frame, but he is much closer to achieving his dream than he was a year ago. The bad new...

In keeping up with the offseason trend of articles here at BSB, we wanted to take some time to discuss locking up perhaps the most important free agents on the market, our own. Michael Del Zotto finished up his entry-level deal this season, which was a three year deal at just under $1.1M per season. This summer the 21 year old is a restricted free agent with no arbitration rights...
Brandon Prust and the New York Rangers are still talking contract but according to Larry Brooks of the NY Post the team and Prust are not close to a new contract and there is a considerable gap in the negotiations that will more than likely see Prust testing free agent waters come July 1st. Though [...]
As you all know, the National Hockey League will be holding their annual awards ceremony tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada to officially wrap up the 2011-12 season, which obviously concluded last week with the Los Angeles Kings winning the Stanley Cup. Among the long list of nominees for awards tonight are Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, head coach John Tortorella and captain Ryan...
Brandon Prust, along with Ryan Callahan, is the heart and soul of the New York Rangers. His relentless attitude and persistent work ethic have both been aspects of his game that have been appreciated by the Garden Faithful as well as the coaching staff since he was first acquired from the Calgary Flames in 2010, and have carried through over the course of his three-year career with...
With the 2012 NHL Entry Draft right around the corner, I figured now would be the perfect time to get the pulse of what the New York Rangers need to do this year.
To do so, I asked the best Rangers’ prospect analyst around, Jess Rubenstein of The Prospect Park to give us his thoughts.
PH: What do you think the Rangers’ overall goal should be at this year’s NHL Entry Draft...
from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, Though Brandon Prust’s first choice is to re-up with the Rangers, and the Blueshirts have keen mutual interest in retaining the impending free agent, it appears there is enough of a gap in the contract negotiations between the parties to make it increasingly likely that the winger will at least test the open market when free agency opens July 1...
First things first: this is a wish list for players that are realistic targets with the 28th overall pick. Of course I’d prefer Nail Yakupov to anyone on this list, but he’s not coming to New York. Second of all, while these are players that have caught my eye, it will be tough to question any pick the Blueshirts make on Friday night. Gordie Clark and the Rangers’ scouting...

Hockey guys to continue to dominate off the ice — Here’s an exclusive photo of actress Veronika London getting close with New York Rangers NHL player Michael Del Zotto at a MMVA after-party in Toronto over the weekend. According to a source, “The two were dancing together all night while drinking and posing for pictures for fans, but...

Kevin evaluated the forwards, so let’s look at the defense.

“He’s gonna be a good player. And we don’t trade kids.” – Glen Sather on Chris Kreider
Following the New York Rangers’ demoralizing Eastern Conference Finals loss, the team’s president and general manager remained true to the cause. His team finished the season with 12 homegrown studs and an average age of 28. If he stays the course, his Rangers...
As the offseason ramps up and we get closer to the draft, trade rumors take center stage. While many writers –MSM and bloggers alike– will try to stir up the conversation by using the E.K.L.U.N.D. rumor strategy to try to convince people they are true insiders, we won’t even bother with that. We are not insiders. We do not post fake rumors or even “logical” rumors. We take...
The New York Rangers have been linked to Rick Nash of the Columbus Blue Jackets since right before the most recent NHL Trade Deadline. A deal appeared close at times, and then Columbus kept asking for more in return. The Blue Jackets are demanding for a huge package in return for Nash, which is understandable. But if you ask for too much, it will scare off teams for...

It's a nice welcome break from all the rumors as on Monday afternoon we will find out if any New York Ranger or New York Islander prospects will be invited to take part in the annual summer evaluation camp held by USA Hockey.
The camp will be held August 4-11 at Lake Placid and is the start of the process used to determine which players might be...

The New York Islanders and the New York Rangers are both heading into Friday night's first-round of the 2012 NHL entry draft with different agendas but one thing in common. Both teams need to show something from the player that they wind up selecting if they select at all.
The New York Islanders with the number four pick in this years draft are in...
