DERICK BRASSARD RUMORS

Rangers final grades: bottom-six forwards

Last season, the Rangers deployed Benoit Pouliot, Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello on their third line and Derek Dorsett, Dominic Moore and Brian Boyle on the fourth for much of the season. Needless to say, depth up front was a team strength. Thanks to the cap crunch and some head-scratching offseason moves, the bottom-six just […]

The New York Rangers remain consistently inconsistent

After a dominant game one against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which the New York Rangers won 2-1, the Rangers went back to an incredibly lackluster style of play in game two. In game one, the Rangers played with a lot more urgency and desperation, consistently outracing the Penguins to the puck, had a tighter forecheck, and a faster jump to secure the 2-1 victory. However, in game...

Rangers are in a tough spot with Brassard’s next contract

The Rangers are in a tough spot with Derick Brassard. He’s a restricted free agent who is arbitration eligible, yet he really shouldn’t be paid much more than his qualifying offer of $3.7 million.
