ANTON STRALMAN RUMORS

Part 2: Why the Rangers chose Dan Boyle over Anton Stralman

In case you missed it yesterday, I was asked why the Rangers kept Dan Girardi over Anton Stralman. After going into qualitative (eye test) and quantitative (#fancystats) analysis, comparing Girardi to Stralman, it was clear to see that Stralman was always the better choice. However, one thing that was not as clear was whether the […] The post Part 2: Why the Rangers chose Dan Boyle...

Rangers may have saved Stralman’s life

Per Dan Rosen, the New York Rangers have saved Anton Stralman’s life. Stralman had been battling lung infections during his time with Columbus, and it caused the Devils to pass on him after signing him to a PTO in 2011. Since the Rangers have access to some of the best doctors, they were able to […] The post Rangers may have saved Stralman’s life appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Rangers decision not to re-sign Stralman brings their success into question

Anton Stralman isn’t happy with the Rangers and he has good reason to be. In a recent interview with Hockey Sverige, the formers Rangers defenseman had the following to say regarding his (lack of) contract negotiations with the team: I wanted to be there and it seemed that the Rangers wanted to keep me well. I continue reading...

Anton Stralman eager to place trust in Lightning's direction

TAMPA, Fla. -- Anton Stralman stood in a small room at Tampa Bay Times Forum, wearing new professional colors as a sign of his trust. The veteran defenseman agreed to a five-year, $22.5 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning last Tuesday, and the sight never would be possible without faith in his new franchise's possible rise. Stralman, who spent the past three seasons with the...

Lightning sign Anton Stralman

The Lightning have signed Anton Stralman to a five year, $22.5M contract. For you math scholars out there, that’s the same $4.5M cap hit that the Rangers signed Dan Boyle for. According to Larry Brooks, Stralman asked the Rangers for the same contract and they refused. The Rangers are making it pretty obvious that they didn’t truly understand the value of Anton Stralman; that...

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. I would expect Stralman to sign a deal, whether with the Rangers or another team, for four to five...

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

The Stanley Cup Final has been a bit of a coming out party for free agent to be Anton Stralman. 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...

Rangers recall Connor Allen in response to Anton Stralman’s injury

The Rangers have recalled defenseman Connor Allen in response to the injury to Anton Stralman last night. Allen, who had a very strong preseason, has a line of 5-8-13 in 29 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack this season. The loss of Stralman is a tough on the Rangers, who are short on right handed shots from the blue line. The club is saying that the injury to Stralman is not serious...
