The on-ice style evolution of Henrik Lundqvist

2014-2015 marks Henrik Lundqvist’s tenth NHL season. He broke in during the first post-lockout campaign in 2005-2006, and has commanded the Rangers crease ever since. While Lundqvist has been a noted style icon off the ice, his aesthetic choices on it have been far more divisive. From 2005-2009 Hank was the poster boy for TPS […] The post The on-ice style evolution of Henrik...

Where Rangers and Marc Staal stand in contract talks

Look, there’s dialogue between Rangers management and Marc Staal’s representation that is constructive. And talks will continue. That’s all good. But even as No. 18’s agent, Paul Krepelka, told The Post on Wednesday afternoon that “we’ve made some progress,” an agreement on a contract extension for the alternate captain is by no means imminent. There remains a substantial...

All signs point to star defenseman Ryan McDonagh being named NY Rangers captain

The Rangers sent two players to the NHL’s season-opening media tour in Manhattan last week: Henrik Lundqvist and Ryan McDonagh. Lundqvist was there as the franchise goaltender and a star who transcends hockey. McDonagh, well, he is likely the team’s next captain. Alain Vigneault will conduct his first press conference of the 2014-15 NHL season on Thursday to officially open...

Poll: what to do with Cam Talbot

Cam Talbot has been an interesting story since joining the Rangers in Marty Biron’s stead at the beginning of last season. An undrafted free agent who blew the lid off his ceiling and went on to have a mini-breakout season as Henrik Lundqvist’s backup. He put up tremendous numbers (12-6-1, 1.64 GAA, .941 sv%), and […] The post Poll: what to do with Cam Talbot appeared first...

2014-2015 Fantasy Hockey Goalie Rankings

Goalies can be notoriously difficult to rank and project for accurately. I give each starter projections but I might not bother trying to predict what kind of numbers a backup is going to offer unless I have reason to believe that they're going to play enough to be worth owning. Most of the time, backups aren't, but there have been some gems in the understudy group in recent...

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...

Brian Leetch On The New York Rangers

from Katie Strang of ESPN, The Rangers’ sturdy back end was a huge component in their playoff success last spring, when they made a run to the Stanley Cup finals against the Los Angeles Kings. Anton Stralman signed with Tampa Bay in free agency, but Leetch would like to see much of that defensive corps remain intact. Priority No. 1, of course, is signing Staal to a new...

The Summer Of Henrik Lundqvist

from Risto Pakarinen at ESPN, You will hear New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist before you see him. Or, rather, you will hear the roar of his black Maserati as it winds through the streets of this west coast city. As a father of a 2-year-old daughter, he also has other cars, but there are no baby seats in the Maserati, so when he's driving solo, it's the...

Henrik Lundqvist: Big Things for This Season

After a great run to the Stanley Cup Final, Lundqvist and the Rangers are ready for a big year. Big signings have helped this team get better, but Lundqvist will have to perform better this year if his team wants to go somewhere again. What a lot of Rangers fans forget is that almost every year, the Rangers have a slow start. Bad goal tending, new players, new rules, all of it. Almost...

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.

Here’s A Really Stupid Ron Duguay ‘Story’ From The New York Post

As I alluded to yesterday, early August is the hockey journalism equivalent of being stranded on a deserted island with no water, no shelter, and Janice from “FRIENDS” as your only companion. It’s boring. It’s torturous. There’s practically nothing going on of note. Thus, writers will reach for stories that probably wouldn’t make the cut at any other time. That’s understandable...
