What to do with Marc Staal

With franchise net minder Henrik Lundqvist, heart-and-soul captain Ryan Callahan and top-pair, RH defender Dan Girardi all scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the 2013 – 2014 regular season and limited cap space to re-sign those players, Glen Sather had some very difficult decisions to make. Despite being in the mix for a playoff berth, […]

Are the Rangers Missing Anything?

After an NHL season where your team makes the Final and loses in Game 5, many might wonder,”Does this team need anything? Can’t we stay the way we are and do it again next year?” If only that were true. With player contracts, negotiations, and player-GM-relations, it can be hard to remain the same team. But I think the Rangers have kept the most important part of their team...

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...

140th Overall: Rangers Select Defenseman Daniel Walcott

The New York Rangers selected their second defensemen of the draft, Daniel Walcott, with the 140th overall pick. Walcott, like Nejezchleb, is a bit older. He was undrafted in the QMJHL draft. He played club hockey for Lindenwood University, a very tiny school, during the 2012-2013 season. He was then signed by the Blainville-Broisbrand Armada of the QMJHL and as a 19-year-old was...

Report card: Defense

Dan Girardi - What a roller coaster year Girardi just completed. He looked totally lost at the beginning of the season (like several Blueshirts), but quickly turned around his game and played like his old self during the second-half. Management was convinced that Girardi’s early-season hiccups were an anomaly and rewarded him with a six-year, $33 million contract, essentially […]

Breakup day notes: Stralman, Boyle could be goners

Today was breakup day for the Rangers, and there were some interesting quotes from some of the players, and not all were good.

Rangers need Richards and Girardi to not play terrible in game five

It’s no secret, Brad Richards has been terrible in the Stanley Cup Final. His fall from adored de facto captain back to the dejected scapegoat that he was in last year’s playoffs under John Tortorella has been a hockey horror show. It’s been a remarkable train wreck that I can’t stop talking about. Partly because it’s incredible how quickly the tide turned against Richards...

What The Hell Is Going On With Dan Girardi?

The Stanley Cup Playoffs can do unbelievable things to players’ reputations. The sample sizes are small and the stakes are as high as they’ll ever get. Sprinkle in the fact that games, especially in the Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Final, are being watched by the entire hockey world and thus under the magnifying glass, and it’s a recipe for defining moments and players...

The Rangers lost 3-2 in overtime on a Justin Williams (I mean really, who else?) tally. It was made possible by a bad terrible egregious ******* awful turnover by Dan Girardi in his own corner.
