Summer 2014 New York Rangers’ Prospect Rankings: 36-25

I published my version of the New York Rangers’ prospect rankings in early January, which you can view here. A lot has changed since then. The prospects have since played for four-to-six months, depending on their schedule, and thus all have developed (or failed to) in different ways over that time. Aside from that, the Rangers have signed multiple prospects as free agents, drafted...

Training camp update: Biron back; Kids skating with vets

Per Andrew Gross, day three of training camp (day two of on-ice activities) was divided into three groups, with each group comprised of a mix of kids and vets.  The day was spent doing drills. The line combinations used during camp saw kids skating on lines with vets, a good way to help build confidence and measure them against current NHL standards. Also per Gross, the lines for...

The backwards mindset

They just don't get it I would have loved to have done a full report on the Baby Ranger's game against the Carolina Hurricanes at Traverse City but there wasn't any live audio or video of the game. The Rangers either by choice or by NHL edict are not showing the games of Traverse City after doing so in the past. If it is a decision that the Rangers made then once...

A headscratcher

Troy Donnay (OHL Images) Wednesday saw the New York Rangers sign defenseman Troy Donnay of the Erie Otters to a NHL entry level contract. Donnay who attended the recent Ranger prospect camp at the beginning of July is 6'7 185 and will be scheduled to play his 4 year in the OHL during the 2013-2014 hockey season. I have to admit that I am wondering what the Rangers saw in...

Back to backs break Blades

Tommy Hughes (OHL Images) In the end the Saskatoon Blades that their critics said weren't deserving of hosting the 2013 Memorial Cup gave fuel to those same critics by bowing out of the Memorial Cup after a 6-1 loss to Tommy Hughes and the London Knights in the tiebreaker game. Pick a word or cliche and it will fit as the curse of back to back games kept it's streak intact...

Winning and losing at the same time

Shane McColgan scores (CHL/WHL Images) The talk about the final round robin game at the 2013 Memorial Cup isn't about the Portland Winterhawk's 4-2 win over the Saskatoon Blades but rather the really suspect hit that Saskatoon's Dalton Thrower hit Portland's Taylor Leier with. Before I go any further I want to make it clear that I do like hard hitting hockey and...

Shane McColgan (#9) (CHL/WHL/Steve Hiscock) So much for all of us so-called "experts" as if you hear someone claiming they thought the Saskatoon Blades really had a chance to beat the Halifax Mooseheads on Sunday don't believe them. Odds are that only the team and their most diehard supporters thought the Blades would knock off the Mooseheads at the Memorial Cup. ...

Don't let the score fool you

Josh Nicholls scores (CHL/WHL/Derek Mortensen) Appearances can be very deceiving as witnessed in the opening game of the 2013 Memorial Cup between the hosts the Saskatoon Blades and the OHL Champions the London Knights. Really the only reasons why London only won 3-2 have to do with a terrible power play of the London Knights and Saskatoon goalie Andrey Markov. London dominated...
