Practice notes: New powerplay units

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers are devoting today’s practice to the powerplay, with the below new units: PP1: Keith Yandle-Derick Brassard-J.T. Miller-Kevin Hayes-Oscar Lindberg PP2: Ryan McDonagh-Dan Boyle-Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Mats Zuccarello It’s good to see Yandle on PP1, along with their hottest player right now in Miller. My guess is that Rick Nash would replace [...

Scouting the trade market: More top-six forwards

The Rangers are in need of another scoring forward, preferably a shoot-first guy, in order to really round out the lineup. The thought process is that a top-six forward is acquired, moving J.T. Miller down to the third line with Kevin Hayes and Oscar Lindberg. That pushes Jesper Fast to the fourth line with Dominic […] The post Scouting the trade market: More top-six forwards appeared...

Four Thoughts: 11/9

1. Reasonable offensive expectations for Oscar Lindberg? Using some loose, crude and completely non-scientific math and attempting to account for shooting percentage regression while taking the averages of his production from the last 2 seasons in Hartford, I have Lindberg scoring 28 goals this season for the Rangers. Now his actual final figure will probably come no where close...

New York Rangers: Lindberg has earned a shot

The New York Rangers have finished the preseason and now have the next five days to come up with a starting lineup that is ready to face off against the Chicago Blackhawks. The majority of the roster was already set, so it was simply a matter of filling the holes of the third and fourth lines with a little competition in the preseason for those spots. So far, there’s only one line...

Friedman: Lindberg likely won’t clear waivers

Per Elliotte Friedman, there are a lot of teams watching the Oscar Lindberg situation with the Rangers very closely. They want to see how he performs and if he makes the team. It is highly unlikely Lindberg clears waivers if he does not make the team, and the Rangers are well aware of this. Friedman […]

Some quick thoughts on Oscar Lindberg and the Rangers lineup

The Rangers 2015-16 campaign is just two pre-season games deep. The first wave of roster cuts has been made with virtually no surprises. Though I’m sure there is at least one heart broken for the demotion of Mackenzie Skapski. For the players remaining in camp, there are few roster spots to be had. Though Oscar Lindberg continue reading...

Reasonable expectations for Oscar Lindberg

When the Rangers re-signed Oscar Lindberg to his two-year deal (one-way deal, guaranteeing his salary), they did so with the assumption that Lindberg will make the club. His spot on the roster is still up in the air, as he could be as high as 3C and as low as 13F, but he will be with […]

What The Rangers Kids Can Bring-Part 1

Lindberg in Hartford With the New York Rangers being in a bind with cap space currently, chances are they will take a chance bringing up some younger players to fill in roles when needed. They are short, especially when its comes to offense, on the 3rd and 4th lines and that’s where these players will fit in. Alain Vigneault has also mentioned wanting some younger players to get...
