RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Rangers Prospect Rankings 35-29

We are officially in the dog days of summer. As Rangers’ fans, we have nothing to talk about except how we differ by $250K on Mika Zibanejad’s future contract, so a good use of time would seem to be ranking the Rangers’ prospect pool. A little bit of a forward though, I will not be […] The post New York Rangers Prospect Rankings 35-29 appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Why Rangers shortchanged Zibanejad in arbitration ask

Mika Zibanejad’s ask for $5.35 million would be pretty well within the parameters of precedent if that number was attached to a four- or five-year deal. Detroit’s Tomas Tatar signed for $5.3 million per for four years while surrendering three seasons of unrestricted free agency. Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson gave up six seasons of unrestricted...

Can the Rangers find a young center?

With all the work Jeff Gorton has done this summer, the last piece is another forward/center to round out the roster. There were rumblings about Tyler Bozak, who recently put his condo in Toronto up for sale. The Leafs are in a tough cap spot, and moving Bozak’s $4.2 million contract gets them off the […] The post Can the Rangers find a young center? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

David Desharnais and the Rangers’ Center Depth

On July 4, the New York Rangers inked veteran centerman David Desharnais to a one-year, $1 million contract. The move is an incredibly low-risk signing—if he works out, it is very cheap and provides good value on the dollar, and if he does not, it is a contract that is easy to bury in the AHL. While it is clear that he is not a Ranger to replace Derek Stepan, who was dealt to Arizona...

Breaking down the number crunch on Rangers’ defense

History tells us that a team can never have too many NHL-caliber defensemen … unless, that is, having too many creates an unsustainable roster crunch. That is the enviable/unenviable scenario confronting the Rangers, who have approximately 10 weeks to sort things out before the season opens. The top four should be set with Ryan McDonagh...

With improvements, questions still remain about Rangers defense

Jeff Gorton’s main focus this offseason was retooling the blue line. He did so with what amounted to a major overhaul. Dan Girardi was bought out and essentially replaced with Kevin Shattenkirk. Anthony DeAngelo was brought in as a result of the blockbuster trade involving Derek Stepan. Kevin Klein retired. Brendan Smith was re-signed. And […] The post With improvements, questions...
