Rangers Free Agency Predictions: Benoit Pouliot

This is a segment I’ll be doing for the next couple of weeks where I analyze all of our upcoming free agents and give my two cents on whether we re-sign them or let them leave for free agency. This week’s player we will be looking into is Benoit Pouliot. Drafted 4th overall in 2005 by Minnesota, Pouliot hasn’t really developed into the player that many experts had predicted...

Benoit Pouliot’s breakout year is a good example of why teams roll the dice on disappointing youngsters

Benoit Pouliot has blossomed in New York after playing for four teams in his first six seasons Every year it seems like the Rangers have a reclamation project or two on their roster. There have been former first- and second-round picks that never panned out in their former homes like Enver Lisin, Chris Higgins, Alex Frolov, Wojtek Wolski and Brian Boyle as well as fringe NHLers looking...

Players policing the ice

Muscle for the 2013-14 Rangers During Friday night’s melee against the Blue Rangers Jackets, we certainly saw something we weren’t used to seeing since the departure of our captain at the very latest; we saw heart and a team playing with passion. We also saw an instance of a hard, borderline hit which rocked one of our players so hard he hasn’t played since with a questionable...

Game 69: Redemption against San Jose

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images The last time the Rangers faced San Jose, they lost 9-2 in an absolute embarrassment of a game. This time around, it will be different (hopefully). The Sharks are no longer the white-hot team that steamrolled the opposition in October. After their absurd start, they have fallen off a bit. They are still playing great hockey, but they aren’t blowing...

Mats Zuccarello will play tonight

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers are getting back their leading scorer (well, not including Martin St. Louis) tonight, as Mats Zuccarello will be rejoining the lineup after suffering a broken hand in the Olympics. Zuccarello missed Norway’s final game in Sochi and the first five games since the break. Zucc will likely rejoin linemates Benoit Pouliot and Derick Brassard on the third...

Rangers 2, Blackhawks 1: Postgame thoughts

Cam Talbot narrowly missed a shutout - This was a pretty impressive victory considering: 1) the Rangers played without their best forward 2) started their backup goalie 4) are facing plenty of distractions 4) were returning from a long Olympic break and 5) were up against the defending Stanley Cup champions. But New York pulled out a 2-1 win to improve to 2-0-0 against Chicago this...

Zuccarello out 3-4 weeks with broken hand

Despite earlier reports that the injury to Mats Zuccarello was not serious, the winger and Rangers leading scorer will be out 3-4 weeks with that broken hand. Considering the Olympic break doesn’t end until Thursday for the Rangers, Zuccarello will miss 2-3 weeks of games. That amounts to anywhere from 5-7 games. This is obviously a blow for the Rangers, as Zuccarello has been...

Quick shootout win wrap up, plus some other tidbits from yesterday’s deadline

I apologize for no goal breakdown today. After a long day of traveling, I just crashed as soon as I got home.

Benoit Pouliot making case to stay with New York Rangers

Benoit Pouliot likely wasn’t in the Rangers’ long-term plans when they signed him this summer, and he certainly wasn’t a month ago when the big winger had just six points through 32 games. He may very well be now. Pouliot has been one of the best Rangers forwards of late, which, on a team that’s beginning to roll, is certainly saying something. With a long list of forwards...

Is Benoit Pouliot forcing an extended Rangers stay?

Pouliot: Riding recent success to a new deal? Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Image Inconsistent, journeyman pro, never sticks with one team, will never live up to his draft status.

Appreciating Benoit Pouliot’s recent play

Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Image When the Rangers signed Benoit Pouliot in the offseason, we viewed it as a solid depth signing that could lead to some great tertiary scoring. Pouliot was one of the league leaders in P/60, and the Rangers got him for a bargain of a contract. It was low-risk, high-reward at its finest. However the signing didn’t work out as planned –at least to...

Rangers midseason grades: bottom-six forwards

When healthy, Derek Dorsett has been everything the Rangers hoped for Like many parts of the 2013-2014 roster, the bottom-six forwards have struggled through long stretches of the season thus far.  Part of that can be attributed to players being used out of place and in unusual situations, but the team hasn’t gotten consistent play out of many of its depth forwards for most of...
