Why the Rangers should stay quiet at the deadline

The Rangers, barring more trade robbery from Glen Sather, should stay quiet as the NHL trade deadline approaches. Several rumours are beginning to circulate around the Rangers and usually there’s no smoke without fire. Indeed, a lot of these rumours come from good sources (McKenzie, Dreger etc) but despite the rumours this Rangers team is Read more → The post Why the Rangers...

Open Thread 1/21: The New “Avery Rule” & Sather Puts Home Up For Sale

It’s been awhile since anything Sean Avery has graced the pages of the NY Rangers Blog. There is a piece penned by Avery over at The Players Tribune where he sheds some light on his own financial history as a player in the NHL. Avery actually has a pretty good plan to keep more money in the players pockets in the light of news regarding Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson declaring...

The Rebirth of Rick Nash

This is the Rick Nash that Glen Sather thought he was acquiring from the Columbus Blue Jackets back in 2012. We’re 16 games into the 2014-15 season, and the former 2012 No. 1 overall pick is not only in a tie for the league lead in goals with 12, not only on pace to shatter Jaromir Jagr’s franchise record for goals in a single season with 54 but most importantly looks the part...

Mismanagement of Defense Will Hurt Rangers

Glen Sather seems like a man who’s pretty happy with his defense. His first pairing is locked up long-term, he went out and got a shiny new power play quarterback this offseason, his third pairing guys are either signed or under team control for three more seasons, and he’s negotiating to keep a home-grown talent continue reading...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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?

#493840147 / gettyimages.comI found this article on T.J. Miller to be interesting, maybe because he was committed to UND for a minute, before he bolted for the greener pastures of the OHL.

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...

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...

Brooks: Rick Nash Is Not Being Traded
