Rangers banking on Dan Boyle

When the Rangers signed Dan Boyle to a two-year deal worth $9 million, they were signing someone to fill a pair of holes. The first hole to fill was that of the now departed Anton Stralman on the second pair, and the second was to fill Brad Richards’ role on the powerplay. It’s a gamble to […] The post Rangers banking on Dan Boyle appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Beware of Brad Richards

As a pessimist by the very definition I must admit that on July 1st I let my inner-optimist get the best of me upon discovering the Blackhawks had signed veteran center Brad Richards. Nearly half a day had passed since free agency officially opened and just about every name transcribed on my free agent wish list had been scratched off by this point in time. To make matters even worse...

Morning Line

"I think they’re one of the strongest built teams in the league. With them, they have amazing star power surrounded with good quality core players. The addition of Brad Richards coming over there as a role player who can help on the power play and be a good leader, brings another experienced guy into a locker room of winners." "I think team has done a very good...

A Group of Blackhawks Fans Petition to #BanTheStripper

The Chicago Blackhawks are a team that is rich with some great traditions, but there is one that a group of fans would like the team to get rid of, the playing of the song “The Stripper” when a female contestant comes out to do “shoot the puck.” Anyone who has been to a Blackhawks game or watches the games on Comcast pretty much knows the formula for shoot the puck. It always...

Brad Richards: A Great Fit for Chicago

During the offseason, the Blackhawks went out and signed veteran center Brad Richards from free agency, filling a major hole in their offense. The 34-year-old professional has played on the New York Rangers for the past three years, including their run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2014. Richards was relied upon immensely by his other teammates throughout the second half of last season...

Lack Of Depth May Hurt The Rangers

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, It was a given that the Rangers would buy out Brad Richards upon the conclusion of their Cup run. They needed to apply the 34-year-old’s annual cap hit toward their restricted free agents: Derick Brassard, Mats Zuccarello, Chris Kreider, and John Moore. They did just that by saying goodbye to Richards, reclaiming the center’s...

Top Six Candidates To Become The Rangers 27th Captain

Now that the Rangers roster is rounding into shape, the next biggest question is who’s going to lead this team? After trading away Ryan Callahan last March, the Rangers decided to go with three alternate captains instead of naming a new captain for the remainder of the season. During the Rangers run to the Stanley Cup Final, Brad Richards took on the role of de facto captain, but...

Way Too Early to Worry About Next Season

In the eyes of much of the mainstream NHL media, the New York Rangers have not had a good summer. They bemoan the losses of Brad Richards, Benoit Pouliot, Anton Stralman and Brian Boyle while suggesting the club didn’t adequately replace those losses in free agency. Many pundits also point out that some of the […]

Brad Richards on center stage as No. 2 center

Newly acquired Blackhawks center Brad Richards didn't get the typical free-agent news conference when he signed. There was no horde of reporters for a jersey presentation. No, the first real chance Richards had to speak publicly came Saturday before more than 2,000 fans at the Blackhawks Convention. And he received a standing ovation as he took the Hilton Chicago stage next...

Rangers Sign Steady Stempniak

The New York Rangers surprised many by qualifying for the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals and did so based in large part on the strength of their club’s depth. Salary cap constraints have conspired to rob the team of some of that depth with Benoit Pouliot, Brad Richards, Anton Stralman and Brian Boyle all departing as […]

Move to Blackhawks a new challenge for Richards

Brad Richards is just getting to know the Chicago Blackhawks, so forgive him if his approach is still a little formal. After signing a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on July 1 worth a reported $2 million, the veteran center is meeting most of his new teammates this weekend at the Seventh Annual Blackhawks Fan Convention.

It has been a busy summer for the New York Rangers.

JT Miller Should Get Huge Chance This Season

With the Rangers cap situation less than ideal, it’s not very likely that they’ll have the ability to replace both Brad Richards and Beniot Pouliot’s through free agency or a trade. While Glen Sather will most assuredly find a way to acquire a substitute for one of the two, it’s looking more and more likely JT Miller, along with his $894,167 per year salary, will be designated...

Dan Boyle not shy about Rangers role: ‘I enjoy the pressure’

The Rangers wanted Dan Boyle six years ago, just as they wanted Marty St. Louis and Brad Richards, too, long before the latter two arrived. But it didn’t work out. The Blueshirts just didn’t have enough tradable assets to get any of them from Tampa Bay while they were in their prime even as ownership dismantled the 2004 Stanley Cup championship team.

He just wasn’t worth the cap hit the Rangers had him tied to. Richards will...
