What The Rangers Kids Can Bring-Part 2

With the New York Rangers in a bind with cap space currently, chances are they will take a chance bringing up some younger players to fill in roles when needed. They need younger players to step up, more on offense currently, however, there are still plenty of defensive prospects who could see some time over the course of the season. Here is a breakdown of what you might see out...

The roster questions facing the Rangers in free agency

The Rangers have a few big questions heading into free agency and the NHL draft. The first of which, is who will be playing on right side of the second defensive pair? Plan A should be to re-sign Anton Stralman, even if it takes $5 million a season; Plan B appears to be Brian Boyle, which isn’t at all ideal; Plan C is the “we really screwed up” scenario where Kevin Klein moves...

Does Kevin Klein affect Dylan Mcllrath’s future?

What does the future hold for McIlrath? (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) When the Rangers made their Michael Del Zotto for Kevin Klein swap with the Predators, they gave up on a frustrating offensive talent and went with the less able but more reliable stay at home, physical type. What they also did was commit to a player whose size and physical ability is likely to be on the Rangers...

Dylan McIlrath Bobble-Fist Giveaway

Last week, I was speaking with the Hartford Wolf Pack on Twitter regarding their promo night next month, in which they are giving away Dylan McIlrath Bobble-Fists. The organization was happy to provide us with three bobble-fists to give away to our loyal readers here at BSB. The three lucky winners will provide me with name/mailing address, and the bobble-fists will be mailed to...

Cam Fowler isn’t a Ranger – get over it

The Dylan McIlrath pick was a mistake, but can we please move on? After Michael Del Zotto was traded last week, many folks in the Ranger Twittersphere turned again to the decision to draft Dylan McIlrath over Cam Fowler as a franchise-crippling blow.  Many believe that the Rangers passed on drafting Fowler because they thought they already had a very similar player in Del Zotto...

Rangers recall Miller, return McIlrath and Asham to AHL

With the holiday roster freeze approaching at midnight tonight, the Rangers made a trio of roster moves to set themselves up for the next week. They returned forward Arron Asham and defenseman Dylan McIlrath to the AHL. They also recalled forward J.T. Miller for the third time this season. Hopefully the third time is a charm for Miller and the Rangers, who desperately need some form...

Gameday musings: Rookies, playing time, holiday roster freeze

Photo: AP A lot has been made about the coach’s apparent decision to sit Dylan McIlrath tonight against the Penguins. I understand both sides of the argument. If the kid is up in the NHL, he should play. But the kid has some glaring holes in his game, and putting him up against the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Crosby’s isn’t exactly the best matchup for someone who has trouble skating...

Hockey fights of the week

We've covered the Boston Bruins pretty heavily here on PDL over the last few weeks. First there was the Thornton incident (you know, this thing which Thornton is appealing) and then we discussed Brad Marchand mocking the Canucks. You might be sick of the boys from Boston by now, but we promise that the top fight in this week's installment is worth bringing up the Bruins just...

Brassard out for Rangers tonight, McIlrath to make NHL debut

The New York Rangers will be sporting a new look tonight when they host Columbus at MSG. Center Derick Brassard will miss his first game of the season — with a “sore posterior,” according to head coach Alain Vigneault — while rookie defenseman Dylan McIlrath will make his NHL debut. McIlrath, 21, was the club’s first-round pick (1oth overall) at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft...

Rangers recall Dylan McIlrath

In some surprising news, the Rangers have recalled defenseman Dylan McIlrath. McIlrath is everything the Rangers need at the moment: a right handed physical defenseman.  This is a move that a lot of people wanted, but we at BSB speculated might be a bit of a rush move since most reports are that McIlrath is not ready at the moment. The move signals a few things. First is that a...

With changes necessary, the Rangers need to look within

Rarity: A Ranger goal celebration. AP Photo/Mike Strasinger With the Rangers seemingly in a tail spin and with the injuries mounting it really isn’t time to panic no matter how bleak it may seem at present. That said, changes do need to be made. The Rangers have an opportunity to insert the likes of JT Miller, Danny Kristo and Dylan McIlrath now and give them consistent ice time...

With more physicality needed, it’s time the Rangers tried Dylan McIlrath

Is Dylan McIlrath ready? Alain Vigneault commented after the Rangers’ turgid performance in Tampa on Monday that “Nobody touched a soul”, referring to his team’s lack of physicality. This has been an underlying issue for large parts of the season so far. In the mean time, Michael Del Zotto continues to be, at best, inconsistent (and the subject of countless traded rumours...

Around the Farm: McIlrath notches another goal in Pack shootout loss

Dylan McIlrath is starting to show why the Rangers drafted him in the first round of the 2010 draft, as he notched his third goal of the season in Hartford’s 3-2 shootout loss to Springfield. McIlrath was never known for his scoring, but he is starting to put up points at an average of slightly below a point every other game. The Undertaker, as he is called, has also made significant...

Should Alain Vigneault send a signal to his team?

McIlrath is one of several prospects that may be considered soon   The Rangers entered the regular season with multiple inconveniences behind them so the horrid start to the regular season does come with some sort of asterix attached to the team record. With a long road trip, multiple key injuries, a bloated (but necessary) preseason roster and a new system all to deal with it is...

Around the Farm: McIlrath nets first pro goal in Wolfpack win

Dylan McIlrath notched his first professional goal, scoring the eventual game winner in Hartford’s 4-3 win over the Albany Devils. McIlrath scored 4:36 into the third period, and the goal held up as the winner. J.T. Miller (2 goals, 1 assist), Chris Kreider (1 goal), and Danny Kristo (2 assists) also had strong games. Up north, Anthony Duclair and MacKenzie Skapski were in action...

McIlrath A Bust? Not So Fast!

Ah, the impatient and rarely satisfied New York Rangers fans.

Is there space for McIlrath?

When will McIlrath be intimidating NHL forwards? The Rangers drafted Dylan McIlrath 10th overall in 2010 and ever since, media and fans have been waiting for his arrival. While McIlrath is now completely healthy and at Rangers camp looking to make the team there doesn’t appear space in the defensive unit even though his style is an absolute need. The Rangers are blessed with a...

Why Dylan McIlrath's Time is Now

The date was June 25, 2010 and the New York Rangers held the 10th pick in the NHL Entry Draft. Instead of going with some more notable names like Cam Fowler, Jack Campbell, Brandon Gormley or Emerson Etem, Gordie Clark and co. went off the board with the hulking, bruising and nasty Dylan McIlrath. He was considered a project at the time, but would be the stay-at-home, crease-clearing...

"The 2012-13 season was McIlrath's first season as a pro, and he made a good adjustment. There were times when he was absolutely invisible on the ice, but there were other times when he inflicted bone crushing hits and cleared the crease...

Hockey’s Future: Rangers have #17 farm system

HF did their annual organizational rankings, and the Rangers came in at #17 on the list. The Rangers have been pretty high for the past few years, but have seen almost all of their prospects graduate to the NHL level, hence the drop this year. HF cites the Rangers strong forward depth as a major strength, along with the presence of Dylan McIlrath and Brady Skjei, who both project...
