Miller Looking “Quicker & Sharper” at Informals

It’s no mystery that the loss of players such as Beniot Pouliot, Brad Richards and Brian Boyle leaves a huge void in the Rangers line-up this season that could very likely be filled by young, unestablished rookies. One such player is JT Miller. The organization is hoping the 21-year old forward is ready to take the next step in his career this season. And from the look of things...

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...

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...
