Not Last Year’s New York Rangers

from Andrew Gross of The Record, To repeat as conference champs, bigger-than-expected contributions have to come from unexpected places. Look, given a choice between a roster with Brian Boyle (Lightning), Stralman, Pouliot and Brad Richards (Blackhawks) or Matthew Lombardi, Lee Stempniak, Tanner Glass and Dan Boyle, I’ll take the first grouping. But Dan Boyle, at 38...

Questions Facing The New York Rangers

from Tal Pinchevsky of, How will the Rangers supplement the forward depth they lost? -- In his first year as Rangers coach, Alain Vigneault rolled all four lines and got consistent scoring from the top three units. He'll be challenged to do that again this season. New York got key plays from Richards and Pouliot, who signed a five-year, $20 million contract with...

Brian Boyle Decided Tampa Bay Was The Place To Play

from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune, After hearing rave reviews on the Lightning — not to mention living in Tampa — Boyle opted to join forces with Callahan once again and signed a three-year contract with Tampa Bay worth $6 million. Boyle was on his honeymoon in Maui when he signed his new deal, and with wife Lauren Bedford, a model in consideration for the next...

Are The Rangers Better Today?

When the dust settled on yesterday’s insanity otherwise known as the NHL’s open day of free agency, I took a look at the Rangers moves and thought to myself “meh.” $4.5 million per for an almost 38-year old defenseman? Three years for a grinder who Penguins fans seemed ecstatic landed in New York? A handful of journeymen defensemen? Not to mention three key members of the...

Lightning sign Brian Boyle

The Lightning picked up another Rangers player today by signing Brian Boyle to a three year, $6 million contract. Boyle allegedly wanted to leave New York to search for more playing time. But as Raw Charge points out, Boyle likely slots in on the Lightning’s fourth line. Boyle’s wife is apparently from the Tampa Bay though and he is believed to have been offered more by the Maple...

It Will Be The New, New York Rangers

You betcha, for the combination of free agency and life in a restrictive hard-cap world will ensure the Rangers’ 2014-15 team photo will look significantly different from the one that was snapped during the Stanley Cup finals. At least five, and perhaps six, of the 18 skaters who competed...

Free agent frenzy: Rumor roundup before it all begins

Free agency is upon us, and the Rangers will see four key players test out the market. Brian Boyle, Anton Stralman, and Benoit Pouliot all seem destined to cash in big elsewhere, while Dominic Moore is still hoping (along with the rest of us) to remain in New York. There are a lot of rumors […] The post Free agent frenzy: Rumor roundup before it all begins appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Boyle Headed To Free Agency; Pouliot Getting 3-Year, $9M Offers

Any Rangers fan hoping that next year’s roster will resemble last year’s Stanley Cup Finalist squad is going to be sorely disappointed. Wednesday night, we heard that talks with Anton Stralman are not going well, now Pat Leonard at the Daily News is reporting that Brian Boyle plans on heading to free agency. Leonard says that Boyle’s agent wouldn’t comment on the status of...

Should the Rangers trade negotiating rights of Boyle / Stralman?

Based on the comments made by both Brian Boyle and Anton Stralman, it looks like both will be playing in different uniforms next season. Boyle has said he is looking for a bigger role –likely a third line role with less defensive zone starts– and won’t get that in New York. Stralman is looking for […] The post Should the Rangers trade negotiating rights of Boyle / Stralman...

The roster questions facing the Rangers in free agency

The Rangers have a few big questions heading into free agency and the NHL draft. The first of which, is who will be playing on right side of the second defensive pair? Plan A should be to re-sign Anton Stralman, even if it takes $5 million a season; Plan B appears to be Brian Boyle, which isn’t at all ideal; Plan C is the “we really screwed up” scenario where Kevin Klein moves...

Rangers Call About Stastny, Interested in Dan Boyle

The buyout of Brad Richards has opened up some much needed cap space for the Rangers and Glen Sather…someone hold me. If the Rangers plan is to bring back all their free agents, than the almost $24 million of cap space is already virtually spent, but this is Glen Sather we’re talking about, so everything is on the table. With the new interview period for unrestricted free agents...

Malhotra as a free agency candidate for the Rangers

Brian Boyle will in all likelihood be playing for a new club next year. The Rangers can’t afford the $2M plus he’ll get in free agency and much like his buddy Brandon Prust once did, he is leaving the organization in pursuit of a bigger “role”. Boyle played most of the year on the wing with Dominic Moore on the fourth line. Vigneault used the combination almost exclusively...

The Rangers players most likely to be traded this summer

Next year’s Rangers team is going to look considerably different than the one that came three wins away from a Stanley Cup this season. Brad Richards will (or has been, since this was written) be bought out, Dominic Moore, Brian Boyle, and Anton Stralman are unrestricted free agents, and I would be expect the Rangers to be active in free agency and in the trade market to improve...

Retain Or Release: Brian Boyle

Oh Brian Boyle. What a roller coaster your New York Rangers’ career has been. You were acquired from Los Angeles in 2009 for a 3rd round pick; a trade that, at the time, seemed completely pointless. In your first season with the Rangers you were totally irrelevant and John Tortorella admitted, in retrospect, that he had you penciled in for the AHL going into next year. A good pre...
