The Clear-Cut Case of Tanner Glass; He’s Not Good At Hockey

Earlier today Kevin wrote a piece in which he broke down what he called the “curious case” of Tanner Glass. Largely, I understand what he was trying to do. Just as in my “Retain or Release” articles, Kevin wanted to present the best arguments he could to, while highlighting some issues, bring hope for success in regards to Tanner Glass’ upcoming tenure with the Rangers...

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...

It Will Be The New, New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Break up the NHL Eastern Conference champions? 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...

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.

The New York Rangers May Not Be Able To Bring A Few Players Back

from Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants, Rangers GM Glen Sather provided a realistic assessment on the Rangers’ chances of retaining all their free agents after the team made its seven selections in rounds 2-7 Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. To paraphrase, they’re not good, and that was even before Sather said the NHL general managers were taken somewhat by surprise by...

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.

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.

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...

Rangers to Disrupt Kings With A Car Bomb?

With the Rangers staring elimination in the face and desperate for a spark, Alain Vigneault might turn to Dan Carcillo, who is eligible to play tonight after serving a six game suspension for roughing up an official.

Moore Suspended Two Games; No Suspensions for Dorsett & Bourque

Bob McKenzie at TSN reports that John Moore has been suspended two games for his dangerous hit on Dale Weise last night. …since the hit was very similar to Prust’s, assuming the league decided a similar suspension would suffice. 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...

This is the series I expected the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins to have, but didn't. There three more hearings with the NHL's Department of Player Safety today. Shouldn't be too much longer and we will have the rulings from the league office. Suspensions are usually announced in the late afternoon after the hearings are over.
