New Rangers lines expecting different deployment strategies

If there was one thing proven about Alain Vigneault’s coaching style over the years, it’s that he tactically deploys his lines (after a whistle) depending on the zone start and the opposing line sent out. Last year we saw the Brian Boyle-Dominic Moore-Derek Dorsett line get the majority of their starts in the defensive zone, […] The post New Rangers lines expecting different...

Dorsett looks to rekindle relationships with Canucks

You don’t play the game the way Derek Dorsett does without developing a few enemies along the way. Last season alone Dorsett had 12 fighting majors (preseason included) according to HockeyFights.com. Two of those fights came against the Vancouver Canucks. During a pre-season game last September, he dropped the mitts with Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa. Then during a regular...

What The New Rangers Bring

Since July 1st, where the Rangers did not make a big splash and instead brought in what they felt were outside needs that filled gaps, there has been a suspicion whether they have gotten better or worse. Out went Brian Boyle, Derek Pouliot, Anton Stralman, and Derek Dorsett and all of a sudden this team is missing some key players from last seasons Stanley Cup run.  The new...

The Curious Case of Tanner Glass

I’ve got to be honest, when the Rangers signed Tanner Glass I didn’t know too much about the guy. I loved the idea of bringing in some sandpaper, especially after trading away Derek Dorsett along with Dan Carcillo’s future with the Blueshirts cloudy at best. However, three years at $1.45 million per seemed excessive for a guy Penguin fans seemed way too excited about landing...

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.

Looking Back on the 2014 Vancouver Canucks NHL Draft

Memorable Moments It hasn’t taken long for newly minted general manager Jim Benning to make his mark on the Vancouver Canucks. Since joining Vancouver, Benning’s made his first hire, snagging Willie Desjardins for the Canucks coaching vacancy. Following that, Benning dealt arguably the Canucks best forward in Ryan Kesler to the Anaheim Ducks. And that was just the beginning....

2014 Draft review

The Rangers went into the 2014 draft with four picks, and wound up making seven selections. They acquired the extra picks by dealing Derek Dorsett to Vancouver and trading down twice in the fourth and fifth rounds. Considering it wasn’t a particularly deep draft, in that there were few impact players, the Rangers made some good […] The post 2014 Draft review appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Rangers 2014 NHL Draft Recap: The Americans are coming (in 4 to 6 years)

As a total outsider to the NHL draft, it’s tough to have an informed opinion about how a team did after seven rounds. However, I think that with the information available from various scouting reports the Rangers overall 2014 draft is ‘worthy’ of some criticism.

Why Are The Rangers Getting Rid Of Their Fourth Line?

A very disturbing trend seems to be taking place this offseason for the Rangers…the very integral fourth line is being split up. The first shoe to drop was the jettisoning of Derek Dorsett to the Canucks yesterday for a third round pick. Add that to Brian Boyle choosing free agency over negotiating a new contract with the Rangers along with Larry Brooks calling Dominic Moore...

Rangers trade Dorsett to Canucks for a pick

The Rangers have traded Derek Dorsett to the Canucks in exchange for a third round pick (85th overall) in the 2014 draft. I speculated earlier that Dorsett may be traded in favor of Dan Carcillo or a cheaper alternative for the fourth line as a means to open up some cap space. A third round pick for a fourth line face puncher isn’t a bad return for the Rangers.

On January 3rd, the Rangers announced that gritty depth winger Derek Dorsett had broken his leg and would be out at least month. Also on January 3rd, the Rangers acquired gritty depth winger Dan Carcillo from the Los Angeles Kings for a conditional 7th-round pick. Obviously not a coincidence. For better or worse, Carcillo had his moments of spicing things up. Now, he’s a free agent...

While both hits were irresponsible, I still maintain that Prust’s was the more predatory of the two. I disagree with the league that Weise’s head...
