Coyotes' struggles lead to roster overhaul

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Coyotes knew there would be little margin for error with the roster they carried into the 2014-15 season. To have any chance of ending a two-year run of missing the playoffs, the Coyotes would need to play lockdown defense, have their goalie steal a few games and get scoring throughout the lineup. None of that happened, leading to one of the worst...

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 4/6/15

Well, the New York Islanders didn’t clinch another playoff spot on Easter Sunday, but they got one point closer. An Ottawa Senators shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs dropped the Islanders’ magic number to one, so Long Island’s hockey team needs either a win or a single point in overtime or a shootout over their final three games, or an Ottawa loss to reach the postseason...

Rangers 6, Devils 1

The New York Rangers (50-21-7) defeated the New Jersey Devils (32-34-13) by a score of 6-1. For a box score, click here. Odd game for 6-1. The Devils had the puck quite a bit throughout and peppered Henrik Lundqvist with 36 shots, who nearly got them all. Once again, the difference in this one was goaltending. Cory Schneider and Keith Kinkaid played so poorly, both of them together...

A look back at the Keith Yandle trade

When the news came out that the New York Rangers had traded top prospect Anthony Duclair, a first and second-round pick and John Moore in the Keith Yandle deal, I was initially dismayed.

Looking at Keith Yandle’s play so far with the New York Rangers

He’s only been on the team for three games, but Keith Yandle has already made an impact on the offensive side of the picture for the New York Rangers with his intelligent passes and strong offensive awareness. While the Rangers are 1/6 on the power play in those three games, that number does not indicate how productive those power plays actually were. With Keith Yandle put on...

Open Thread 3/7: Four Thoughts Post Deadline

1. In light of the Keith Yandle acquisition, much has been made of the Rangers “championship window” that seems to be always just at the precipice of closing. Viewing at their overall contract situations, the Rangers are pretty well set up this year and next year for quality shots at a championship. The only real question mark is Martin St.Louis’ expiring contract and how much...

Salary cap implications of the Keith Yandle trade

Once again it seemed like Rangers GM Glen Sather had little to no maneuverability under the salary cap, and once again Slats found a way to wriggle his payroll under the cap ceiling.
