RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Where Rangers and Marc Staal stand in contract talks

Look, there’s dialogue between Rangers management and Marc Staal’s representation that is constructive. And talks will continue. That’s all good. But even as No. 18’s agent, Paul Krepelka, told The Post on Wednesday afternoon that “we’ve made some progress,” an agreement on a contract extension for the alternate captain is by no means imminent. There remains a substantial...

Which lineup is better: The 2014 Rangers, or the active ex-Rangers?

We’re (finally) just one day away from training camp! There will be a whole lot of real Ranger news coming up, but since we’ve exhausted pretty much every type of camp preview imaginable this summer – allow me just one more random post before the action kicks into high gear. What would happen if you […] The post Which lineup is better: The 2014 Rangers, or the active ex-Rangers...

Wing depth a strength for the Rangers

Yesterday I posted on how center depth could be a concern for the Rangers heading into this season. It’s not to say that the Rangers are flawed, that’s just one hole that could pose a problem. On the flip side, wing depth appears to be a strength for the Rangers. Most of their wingers from […] The post Wing depth a strength for the Rangers appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Around the Farm: Baby Rangers drop another in OT

The Rangers lost their second game in overtime last night, falling to the Hurricanes by a score of 3-2. The Rangers were able to tie the game late on a goal by the top line (Haggerty from Hayes and Duclair), but the Canes were able to win it on Trevor Carrick’s OT winner. The lines […] The post Around the Farm: Baby Rangers drop another in OT appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Rangers Take A Gamble On Ryan Malone

Ryan Malone’s career hit rock bottom last April when he was arrested and charged with a DUI and cocaine possession. His multi-million dollar contract was subsequently bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning and Malone didn’t have a team to call home. Now, however, it looks like he is getting a second chance. The New York Rangers recently signed Malone to a two-way contract worth...

Marc Staal is not the defenseman Rangers fans think he is

At first glance, Marc Staal looks like he had a pretty solid season last year. Staal and his defensive partner Anton Stralman created a formidable second pair that played a key role in the Rangers march to the Stanley Cup Final. Staal posted a CF% relative to his teammates during 5 on 5 of 3.29%, continue reading...

Malone Has One Goal: To Make the Team

When Rangers training camp opens on Thursday, Blueshirt Nation can definitely count on one guy showing up on a mission: Ryan Malone (via Newsday)… “I can’t be more grateful for the opportunity to get on the team . . . I have just one goal, which is to make the team; it’s not going to be given to me . . . There’s tremendous depth with young guys; it’s going to be a battle...

All signs point to star defenseman Ryan McDonagh being named NY Rangers captain

The Rangers sent two players to the NHL’s season-opening media tour in Manhattan last week: Henrik Lundqvist and Ryan McDonagh. Lundqvist was there as the franchise goaltender and a star who transcends hockey. McDonagh, well, he is likely the team’s next captain. Alain Vigneault will conduct his first press conference of the 2014-15 NHL season on Thursday to officially open...

Report: Rangers To Name Ryan McDonagh Team Captain

According to reports, Alain Vigneault will announce defender Ryan McDonagh as the new recipient of the “C” at his first press conference of the season. McDonagh said on Friday that he’s ready to accept the responsibility. “I think I’ve progressed...

Rumors That McDonagh Will Be Named Captain Are Just That…Rumors

While scanning Twitter last night, I came across this doozy… Les @NYRangers auraient choisi @RMcDonagh27 comme nouveau capitaine et pourraient l'annoncer sous peu : http://t.co/8dVa15KOXc — TVA Sports (@TVASports) September 13, 2014 For those of you who don’t speak french, I’ll have our resident Rosetta Stone graduate Adam Herman translate… Literal translation of the...

Rick Nash’s goal scoring last season compared to the league

I’ve been documenting the reasons why the ‘heat’ on Rick Nash is an overblown ‘hot take’. See exhibits 1 and 2 here and here. For my next piece of evidence, lets extrapolate Nash’s 5 on 5 goal scoring rate over 82 games worth of minutes. Nash missed 17 games last season with a concussion and continue reading...

Tanner Glass, or How to Light Millions of Dollars on Fire

Since July 1, not a single person has articulated sound reasoning for the New York Rangers signing Tanner Glass to a three year, $1.45million per year contract. I’m not about to try to spin this. He is, by all objective metrics and observations, a bad hockey player at the NHL level. He’s about as useful to continue reading...
