Rangers save their best for last by signing Hayes

By most reasonable counts, the Rangers front office had a pretty crappy summer in free agency. They lost defensive stalwart and ‘possession god’ Anton Stralman to the Tampa Bay Lightning and replaced him with 38 year old Dan Boyle, who can’t come anywhere close to replacing Stralman’s even strength minutes. Even though the Rangers were continue reading...

Brian Leetch On The New York Rangers

from Katie Strang of ESPN, The Rangers’ sturdy back end was a huge component in their playoff success last spring, when they made a run to the Stanley Cup finals against the Los Angeles Kings.

Lavoie: Talks with Stralman not going well

Per Renaud Lavoie, talks between the Rangers and UFA defenseman Anton Stralman are not going as planned. The Rangers are allotting $4 million to Stralman, but it definitely seems that Stralman will get north of $4.5 million, probably closer to the $5 million that Andrew MacDonald got from Philadelphia. If AMac’s contract wasn’t enough proof, […]

Rangers believed to have allotted $4 million for Stralman

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers have allotted approximately $4 million for Anton Stralman this summer and are prepared to offer three to four years. For Rangers fans with a pulse, this is good news. I have Stralman pegged for $4.5 million a year, which is likely on the high end.

Anton Stralman: Market value versus perceived value

Just how good is Anton Stralman? (spoiler: really good)

The hockey world has been exposed to what astute Rangers fans have known all along; Stralman is very good at hockey. But lets put Stralman’s Stanley Cup Final performance aside for a moment. After all, he has played only 24 games in the playoffs. It makes more sense to look at a larger...
