Rangers Sign Malone to Two-Way, $700K Contract

Whelp, Glen Sather just added a little juice to training camp as the Rangers have signed Ryan Malone to a two-way, $700,000 contract today. The 34-year old Malone, who was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and cocaine possession back in April, had just 15 points in 57 games last season for the Lightning. The Rangers are now at the maximum 50 contracts. This signing...

Rangers re-sign John Moore

Glen Sather’s offseason list is complete. RFA defenseman John Moore has re-signed on a one-year, $850k deal (his qualifying offer). Moore put up a line of 4-11-15 last season, averaging 15:19 in ice time. One interesting bit about the contract: This appears to be a “show me” deal for Moore.

Rangers facing several more key personnel decisions again this season

Prior to the start of the 2013-2014 season, few could have imagined that the Rangers would trade their heart and soul captain, Ryan Callahan, at the March 5 trade deadline. But such is life in the salary cap world – GM Glen Sather determined a contract number he wouldn’t exceed for both Callahan and defenseman […] The post Rangers facing several more key personnel decisions...

Did Gordie Clark and Glen Sather out-draft a potato?

I’ve been on the record many, many, many times stating that we like where the team stands and the direction the front office has taken to get here. That said, I thought this would be a fun exercise, and it doesn’t change my opinion of the front office moves or draft choices.

The New York Rangers Will Take A Look At UFA Ryan Malone

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Ryan Malone, 34 years old and in need of a second chance, apparently will get one from big-hearted general manager Glen Sather and the Rangers. The Post has learned Malone, a free agent who was bought out by the Lightning after a June arrest for DUI and possession of cocaine following a fallow 2013-14 season, will join the Blueshirts’...

Did The Rangers Land Another Late Round Goaltending Steal?

This time last season one of the biggest question marks within the Rangers organization was their lack of elite goaltending prospects. I know the Rangers just re-signed Henrik Lundqvist to a seven year extension, but eventually they needed to start grooming his heir apparent. Which is why it was no surprise to see Glen Sather and Gordie Clarke draft top goaltending prospect...

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.

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...

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.
