Entirely too many words on Ryan Malone and the Rangers

Multiple rumors suggest that the Rangers have engaged in talks with Ryan Malone regarding a training camp invite. The rumors make sense for a few different reasons. For starters, Ryan Malone once played for the Tampa Bay Lightning, which seems to mean something to Glen Sather (note: Glen does know that Malone was not part of the 2004 Cup winners, right?). But of more significance...

Why Every New York Sports GM Should be Fired

When professional sports team fail to win, fans love pointing the finger at the General Manager for not putting the necessary pieces on the field/court/ice. New York sports fans are especially critical, and I’m going to make an argument for why every single New York Sports GM should be fired (besides Glen Sather who’s coming off a Stanley Cup Finals appearance with the Rangers...

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...

Rangers contract talks Staal-ed with defenseman

So, it has been seven weeks since Alec Martinez ended the Rangers’ season in Los Angeles, seven weeks in which general manager Glen Sather has made no attempt to lock up Marc Staal with a long-term contract extension before he goes into his potential walk year. “There’s been no discussion at all, but I did get a call from Jeff early in the offseason telling me that they were...

Make or Break Time for J.T. Miller?

How Lee Stempniak will affect his teammates

When the Rangers signed Lee Stempniak to a one-year deal worth $900,000, many applauded Glen Sather. He found another low-risk, high-reward player that could potentially replace Benoit Pouliot on the third line. In all honesty, they are pretty identical players from a #fancystats point of view. But of course, numbers don’t tell the whole story. […] The post How Lee Stempniak...

Chris Kreider signs two-year deal with Rangers

New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather has built a reputation of driving a hard bargain with his team's restricted free agents, especially those coming off their entry-level contracts. That story line replayed itself again in the latest negotiation with Chris Kreider, who reportedly sought $2.8 million per season on a two-year contract. Instead, the 23-year-old settled...

JT Miller Should Get Huge Chance This Season

With the Rangers cap situation less than ideal, it’s not very likely that they’ll have the ability to replace both Brad Richards and Beniot Pouliot’s through free agency or a trade. While Glen Sather will most assuredly find a way to acquire a substitute for one of the two, it’s looking more and more likely JT Miller, along with his $894,167 per year salary, will be designated...

What The Rangers RFA’s Will Cost

Although great to see the New York Rangers make a Stanley Cup Final run, it hurts more this offseason as all their RFA’s had strong regular seasons backed up with 13 playoff victories.

Brooks: Rick Nash Is Not Being Traded

With the free agency cupboard becoming more and more bare by the day, conventional thinking is that if Glen Sather is going to upgrade the Rangers it’s going to be via a trade. And the one Rangers player who continues to be mentioned among Blueshirt Nation as possible trade bait is Rick Nash. I can’t tell you the amount of e-mails, tweets and Facebook messages I receive involving...

In the aftermath of the free agent frenzy of last Tuesday, it appears that a lot of you (and us, actually) have some pretty strong feelings, mostly negative.

Please Rangers, don’t sign Steve Ott

I feared that the Rangers would evaluate their loss to the Kings and say “we got to get bigger and meaner”. The early returns on their 2014 off-season seem to suggest that is exactly what Glen Sather’s conclusion was. The Rangers seemingly went out of their way to draft size over skill in the early rounds of the 2014 draft (though that’s not entirely certain). They saw fit...

A few thoughts about the Rangers, free agency, and Joe McGrath

There is no sugar coating this, day one of free agency for the Rangers was a total disaster. My worst case scenario happened; Dan Boyle replaced Anton Stralman, JT Miller appears likely to be the third line center going into training camp, and Benoit Pouliot got all the money. Okay, what actually happened was worse than my ‘worst’ case scenario. Because in addition to everything...
