Open Thread 12/15- Postgame Media; Call Up on the Way?

With Brassard back in NYC getting treatment for the mumps, the Rangers have just 12 healthy forwards with one more game in Alberta, Canada to be played. Given the unexpected nature in which the mumps virus rears its ugly head, could there be re-reinforcements on the way? If #NYR need a healthy center for B2B vs Canes next weekend, Oscar Lindberg, Chris Mueller are in Hartford â...

The far-reaching impact of Derek Stepan’s return

It was just over four weeks ago that Chris Mueller was the third-line center for the New York Rangers. Feels like a lot longer than that, right? New York’s problems down the middle began when the team failed to bring in a replacement for Brad Richards and were exacerbated when Derek Stepan broke his fibula during training camp.

Fixing the fourth line

All season long, the Rangers have had some serious issues with the fourth line. It’s not really a surprise, since the Rangers have used nine different players on that line already. Nine. Tanner Glass, Dominic Moore, Jesper Fast, J.T. Miller, Ryan Malone, Chris Mueller, Lee Stempniak, Kevin Hayes, Anthony Duclair. Suffice it to say: That’s […] The post Fixing the fourth line...

Chris Mueller assigned to AHL

The New York Rangers have assigned center Chris Mueller to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Mueller has filled in somewhat nicely as an injury replacement as the 4C on the club, notching a goal and an assist in seven games this year. Mueller’s demotion means that Derek Stepan is likely good to go […] The post Chris Mueller assigned to AHL appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Chris Mueller makes a quick impact with the Rangers

It’s not that the Martin St. Louis was bad at center for the Rangers, it’s that he’s so much better at right wing. The recall of center Chris Mueller has allowed St. Louis to shift back to the wing where he has extended the Rangers lineup to what is now two formidable scoring lines. St. continue reading...

Rangers make roster moves, where does Duclair fit now?

The Rangers sent JT Miller and Jesper Fast to Hartford (more on this later) and recalled Chris Mueller. The implications seem to be that Martin St. Louis will be reverting back to the wing and Mueller will play center along with Kevin Hayes and Dominic Moore. If this happens, Anthony Duclair is pushed down to continue reading...

The New York Rangers have recalled forward Chris Mueller from the Hartford Wolf Pack, returning forwards Jesper Fast and J.T. Miller in the process. Miller and Fast have been healthy scratches for the past two games, so getting them playing time in the AHL is a good idea.

Wolf Packers Already Putting Pressure On Ranger Underachievers

So what’s a New York Rangers blogger to do after their team is embarrassed in two straight games? Imply that players’ jobs are in jeopardy, of course. This year’s training camp was one of the most exciting and intense I’ve seen in years. Eager participants, young and old, fought valiantly for four vacant forward positions. When the dust settled, I felt Alain Vigneault had...

The decision to keep Hayes with the Rangers is tough to reconcile

Chris Mueller cleared waivers today and became the final cut of training camp. The center, who I thought would make the team, was sent to Hartford. The Rangers opted instead to keep rookie Kevin Hayes on the roster. Keeping Hayes is a peculiar move. He comes to the Rangers straight from Boston College and did continue reading...
