The New York Rangers have quietly changed their team identity

This generation’s New York Rangers have been poster children for the before-and-after of contending for a Stanley Cup for several years and mortgaging the future for the sake of the chase. Under previous GM Glen Sather, before Jeff Gorton took over, the Blueshirts shipped out their first round pick four straight years in the pursuit of Rick Nash, Martin St-Louis (he cost them two...

Rangers Add Vesey, But Now What?

The New York Rangers surprised the field last week, signing Jimmy Vesey to a two-year, entry-level contract. The deal could be worth as much as $3.775 million annually should he earn all of his bonuses. While the Rangers were among the teams known to be interested, other clubs, including Toronto and Boston, were thought to have a better chance to get Vesey. There’s little question...

Rangers’ obsession with depth leads them to free-agent forward

One of the tenets of general managers is that a team can never have enough depth. Well, Rangers GM Jeff Gorton certainly is taking that one to heart. Gorton was close Thursday to completing a contract for yet another free-agent forward, 25-year-old Brandon Pirri, for a reported one-year, $1.1 million deal. It is a low-risk,...

On Henrik Lundqvist’s so-called “decline”

Henrik Lundqvist has been the backbone and the face of the New York Rangers for over a decade. It’s been a fascinating career to watch, as we have become somewhat jaded to his consistent excellence and the impact he has had on a franchise in transition, coming out of the lockout in 2005. Now, at […] The post On Henrik Lundqvist’s so-called “decline” appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Musing the Rangers: Gerbe, Hank, Vesey & Fast

It’s the true dog days of the hockey season (I feel like I have written that a few times already this summer). Let’s jump into a mainly Rangers musings post but sprinkle in a little league wide news.

Can Chris Kreider be a Consistent Force for the New York Rangers?

This fall, New York Rangers’ left wing Chris Kreider will certainly have high expectations placed on him. But this is nothing new for the 25-year-old Massachusetts native. Last season, Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault stated that Kreider should be a 30 goal scorer. Well, in 2015-16 Kreider’s 21 goal total was disappointing, but entering the 2016-17 season, the Rangers...

Sean Avery hassles homeless people, posts it on Snapchat

Sean Avery was known as a pesky, trash-talking menace during his playing days in the NHL, and it appears his sometimes-unbecoming and off-putting conduct on the ice — not to mention off of it — has continued on in his retirement. The former New York Rangers star has taken to posting videos on Snapchat in which he hassles homeless people. The standard encounter Avery has with...

After Eric Staal was traded to the New York Rangers during the 2015-16 season, there was some speculation that the forward could return to the Carolina Hurricanes as a free agent over the summer.
