Best player on the Rangers? It might be J.T. Miller

If you had to pick one forward on the Rangers that has the best shot attempt percentage at even strength 5-v-5, who would you pick?Rick Nash? Sure, he and his linemates produce a lot of shots when he is on the ice, but they also surrender a lot.Derek Stepan? A good guess, but when he's on the ice, the opponents generally take more shot attempts than he and his linemates.How about...

Anaheim Ducks: Defensive zone turnovers prove costly in New York

The last place Anaheim Ducks were in New York on Monday and Tuesday to play back-to-back games against the Islanders and the Rangers, two games they were desperate to win. The Ducks started well in both games, but defensive miscues and sloppy play in their defensive zone led to them leaving New York with two losses and just one point. While offensively, the Ducks showed some signs...

In praise of Derick Brassard’s play

Although Derek Stepan’s injury has caused some issues for the Rangers, with lines being shaken up and a lack of offense jump being evident from time to time, the lack of one of their top offensive players hasn’t been entirely disastrous due to the recent play of Derick Brassard. While Brassard has always been an […]

Canucks’ Dan Hamhuis Takes Slap Shot Off Face, ‘Probably’ Broke Jaw (Video)

A turnover next to the Vancouver Canucks’ net proved very costly for defenseman Dan Hamhuis. Hamhuis coughed the puck up during the third period of Wednesday’s 2-1 win over the New York Rangers, and Derick Brassard swooped in to scoop it up. Brassard then dropped a pass back to Dan Boyle, who sent a wicked slap shot toward Canucks goalie Ryan Miller. Before it could reach Miller...

What should the Rangers do with Emerson Etem?

The New York Rangers enter a short road trip tonight starting with a 9:00 EST game in Colorado against the struggling Avalanche.

Interestingly enough, Etem might actually get a chance to play in the top six for Alain Vigneault in order to see...

AV Line Tinkering; Stalberg Cleared

Yesterday at Rangers practice, the coach made yet another switch, flip flopping Derick Brassard and Derek Stepan which essentially puts them back in their original spots when they started the season. I’m assuming here that AV couldn’t have been particularly thrilled with the Brassard-Kreider-Fast line, as the trio never generated sustained offense consistently and was often...
