Chris Kreider, New York Rangers wary of restoring Chipotle loyalty

The 24-year-old forward told the New York Daily News that he used to go to the popular burrito joint very frequently and was known to order two burritos in one sitting each time he visited.But like many Americans, Kreider stopped going to Chipotle over the last few months while the chain battled an...

The biggest month in Chris Kreider’s Rangers career

Chris Kreider has approached a crossroads in his Rangers career. Kreider has the opportunity to make himself either untouchable (and in line for a new fat contract) or very quickly place himself in the cross hairs of General Manager Jeff Gorton as the team approach the trade deadline. One assumes that the Rangers (whether you […] The post The biggest month in Chris Kreider’s...

New York Rangers: Now that’s more like it

The New York Rangers went into the tundra that is North Carolina and beat the Hurricanes (which should be renamed the Blizzards) 4-1 in what felt like the dominant, Rangers-like win seen at the beginning of the year. The team had 17 shots in the first period again, and a couple of beautiful wristers by Ryan McDonagh and JT Miller (who has been outstanding away from the Garden) helped...

Why the New York Rangers Have Fallen From Glory

The New York Rangers are struggling. Greatly. Everything is just breaking down. They’ve gone from President’s Trophy winners, to near Stanley-Cup finalists… to rock bottom. It seems that the team has fallen off the edge of glory, quite literally. So, what happened? Well, everyone loves to point fingers now a days. However, that is the problem that the Rangers are facing. No...

New York Rangers: Things need to change

Another heartbreaking loss. The New York Rangers are now third in the Metropolitan Division with the New York Islanders leap frogging them after their win in Brooklyn tonight. The Rangers overall played a very good game with the exception of about two minutes in the third when Kevin Hayes decided to not take up on his multiple chances to clear the puck and turned it over for the...

Appreciating J.T. Miller’s strong season thus far

When the season started, many anticipated that J.T. Miller would be third in the pecking order behind Chris Kreider and Kevin Hayes. Certainly a solid player, but by no means someone that the Rangers should be counting on daily. He needed to take the next step, but was really looking at a third line role.

New York Rangers: Points are points, wins are wins

The New York Rangers won a huge game on home ice against the Boston Bruins to pick up a much-needed two points in the standings. The Rangers have recently been in a win-one, lose-one streak, but have quietly taken 5/6 possible points against the Stars, Capitals, and now the Bruins, who are three of the best teams in the league. This might be a possible sign of good things to come...

Practice notes: Kreider returns, Lindberg may be scratched

Chris Kreider returned to the ice during today’s practice, per Sean Hartnett. Kreider skated on a line with Kevin Hayes and Jesper Fast. Oscar Lindberg appeared to be the odd man out, as the other three lines remained the same from yesterday’s game. For those keeping score at home, that means Lindberg may be a scratch […] The post Practice notes: Kreider returns, Lindberg...

Trouble In The Big Apple

For the last few years, the New York Rangers have been one of the more consistent and dominant teams in the Eastern Conference. They have made deep playoff runs in each of the last four seasons, one of which culminated in a Stanley Cup Finals loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Despite failing to win a Cup since 1994, there has been reason to believe that drought would be broken...

Is Chris Kreider the next cap casualty?

This past offseason the Rangers were forced into a difficult position, as the salary cap forced them to part with Carl Hagelin. Hagelin was a fan favorite, but at $4 million he was a luxury the Rangers could not afford. Such is life in a cap world. This offseason, the Rangers may find themselves in […] The post Is Chris Kreider the next cap casualty? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Should the Rangers eventually pair Chris Kreider with Marc Staal or Dan Girardi in a trade?

The biggest contributors to the Rangers’ problems are veteran defensemen Marc Staal and Dan Girardi, who have struggled mightily and each have cap hits of at least $5.5 million for the next four years (five for Staal). Dealing either player will be tricky given their robust contracts and current level of play, but that’s the ideal […] The post Should the Rangers eventually...

New York Rangers: Utilize your strengths

The Rangers dropped another brutal game last night in Vancouver by a score of 2-1 after both sub-par officiating on both sides of the coin as well as an inability of the Rangers to put the puck in the back of the net. Kevin Hayes had a wide open opportunity late in the third period to slide the puck past Ryan Miller but mistakenly put it right through the crease, arguably the Rangers’...

Four Thoughts: 12/5

1. I’ve been an unapologetic defender of Chris Kreider ever since his debut in the playoffs 3 years ago, and Kreider stated the other day, this season has been “as bad as it can be.” As Kevin infamously stated once upon a time after Derek Stepan had similar issues that stretched into January, I hate to say it, but it might be time for Kreider to sit for a game in the press...

The New York Rangers (17-6-3) fall in the shootout to the New York Islanders (14-8-4) by a score of 2-1. For a box score, click here.

Now to get them to do that almost every night.  Forget the result on the scoreboard tonight and just focus on the Rangers at large. Everyone who...

The New York Rangers can’t rely on the same players

While the New York Rangers overall have been playing stellar hockey, the bulk of their scoring has been carried out by only a few players. From the offensive side of things, Mats Zuccarello has undoubtedly taken this team to nine straight wins, which is both good and bad. He’s obviously making that $4.5 AAV look incredibly cheap, but at the same time, if he stops producing, then...

Abdelkader was set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, the final year of his four-year deal. His cap hit was $1.8 million, but this season […]

Chris Kreider still isn't getting along well with the Montreal Canadiens

Anyone who is wondering whether there is still any bad blood between Chris Kreider and Carey Price got their answer in the third period of Thursday night's game between the Rangers and the Canadiens. Kreider was making the routine circle behind the Montreal net when Price took advantage of the opportunity to lay the forward out with a hit behind the net, then stared down Kreider...

Canadiens Goalie Carey Price Knocks Down Chris Kreider Behind Net (Video)

Carey Price looked more like a linebacker than an NHL goaltender in Thursday night’s game against the New York Rangers. The Montreal Canadiens netminder went behind his net to play a puck in the first period and Rangers forward Chris Kreider skated toward him. He stopped the puck for P.K. Subban, but instead of avoiding Kreider, he flattened him with a check. Of course...

If you think Carey Price has forgotten the little transgression that Chris Kreider caused two years ago, you would be sadly mistaken. I am of course referring to Kreider’s breakaway that ended the Canadiens’ Cup chances and ended Price’s season. I am sure this memory is still pretty fresh in his mind. Kreider, who is gaining himself quite a reputation around the league, also...
