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 sign Brassard to a five year deal

According to Elliotte Friedman, the Rangers have signed restricted free agent Derick Brassard to a five year, $25 million contract. A few weeks ago I wrote about how the Rangers needed to be careful with Brassard’s next contract for the following reason: In totality, Brassard’s production and usage was very similar to Brad Richards last season.

Projecting Derick Brassard’s next contract

Derick Brassard is the third and final RFA that filed for arbitration this month (Mats Zuccarello and Chris Kreider). I’ve looked at both Kreider’s and Zuccarello’s next contracts already, and with arbitration dates coming up, it’s time to look at Brassard’s potential deal.

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. But Brassard is likely seeking more than that on a long-term contract to buyout years in free agency. My best guess is he will be looking for something along the lines of Bryan Little‘s...
