RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers Cloudy Future Even More Uncertain

By now, you may have read Larry Brooks’ column from late Tuesday night, which offered a wealth of potential new information on the Rangers’ plans going into this offseason. There’s a ton to go over so we’ll break this down bit-by-bit. According to Brooks, the Rangers have no intention of buying out Dan Girardi, citing the knee injury that hobbled him since December as a reason...

Report: Rangers willing to part with McDonagh, Stepan, Brassard for right price

The past five seasons have been successful ones for the New York Rangers, with eight playoff series victories, three conference final appearances and one Eastern Conference championship, but a woeful showing in the first round this post-season has left the potential for major changes in New York this off-season. Heading into the summer, the Rangers have only seven forwards and five...

Bizarre trade between Canucks and Panthers offer Rangers hope

Apparently, Dan Girardi and Marc Staal are so bad (p.s. they’re not) that they are untradeable unless the Rangers do something ridiculous like take back Bobby Holik and Scott Gomez’s Ranger contracts. Well, the rather perplexing trade between the Canucks and Panthers this week has taught us two things that should excite the Rangers and […] The post Bizarre trade between Canucks...

Brooks: Rangers will not move Girardi, listening on Nash, Brassard, Stepan, McDonagh

Twitter broke last night when Larry Brooks published his article with his latest in Rangers rumors. Brooks is the only beat writer with real sources, even if he is about 50/50 on what he breaks. This time around, what he broke was a series of absolute doozies that rocked Rangers Twitter last last night. Brooks’ […] The post Brooks: Rangers will not move Girardi, listening on...

10 Targets: Off-Season Moves – 5 Forwards

The Rangers’ scoring depth was woefully lacking in the regular season and playoffs. They received hot streaks from young players that helped them sustain offensive success throughout the season, but there were far too many games where they put less than 20 shots on goal. They somehow still won a lot of those games due to luck and a ridiculous stretch of facing really bad goal tending...

Analyzing the potential for a New York Rangers blockbuster trade

Unless you were living under a rock this season, you noticed that the Rangers need to make some changes if they wish to stay relevant in the NHL. Without singling out specific players, they were slow, apathetic, careless, and sloppy all season long. Some of it was attitude, with the apparent expectation that they could […] The post Analyzing the potential for a New York Rangers...

Report: Rangers may make Rick Nash available

Rick Nash could be available this summer. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman said he thinks the New York Rangers are willing to move the former 40-goal scorer under the right scenario, during his Saturday’s Headlines segment. (H/T Rory Boylen of Sportsnet for transcribing.) “You’re going to hear a lot of wild rumours this year George [ Stroumboulopoulos], I think this is going...

The New York Rangers need a puck-moving defenseman

What partially made the New York Rangers excellent in the 2014-15 season was the fact that they were able to play a good transition game out of their own zone with exceptional speed. However, in the 2015-16 season, the outlet passes of the Rangers defensemen took a gigantic step back in terms of quality, especially considering they lost a lot of speed in the lineup. The team D used...

10 Targets: Off-Season Moves – 5 Defensemen

It was surprising to most, that the 2015-16 New York Rangers struggled so badly in their own end. For years the defense and goaltending were the only bright spots on the team, grinding their way to Game 7 in nearly ever series, willing their way to an Eastern Conference Final on nothing but JAM™ and lucky bounces (Marian Gaborik not withstanding). But all those years of chasing...

The New York Rangers have inked the future

The New York Rangers have officially signed 2013 3rd-round forward Pavel Buchnevich to an entry-level contract. Buchnevich is undoubtedly the best forward prospect in the Rangers system, and he’s drawing plenty of comparisons to Evgeny Kuznetsov and Vladimir Tarasenko, although he’s not projected to play as well as them. The kid put on a pretty good show at the World Juniors...

New York Rangers: Raanta returns

The New York Rangers have re-signed Antti Raanta to a two-year, $2 million contract. It seemed pretty likely that he was going to stay with the team, and it was really only a matter of how much we were going to pay him. He’s a phenomenal backup goaltender and did very well this year, but it’s important that we didn’t overpay him since we have other free agents that need more...

Report: Dan Boyle blasts reporters, asked two to leave

Dan Boyle’s short tenure with the New York Rangers is over. The defenseman had a tough end to his stint in the Big Apple after signing a two-year deal worth $9 million in 2014. Boyle was a good possession player while scoring 24 points in 2015-16, but ended his career in the press box as a healthy scratch against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Rangers' first-round loss.

WATCH: Letang viciously slashes Stalberg, won’t be suspended

Out of all of the playoff series happening, the most cordial of the bunch seems to be the Penguins and Rangers. The tenor of the series may have just changed with Kris Letang’s slash on Viktor Stalberg in Game 3. When watching it in real time, it doesn’t seem too bad. The replay shows a completely different story. Letang takes a second and makes the decision to follow through...
