Fan Post: The Forgotten Piece Of The Rick Nash Trade

Written by Bryan (King For Cup): As we all know, former Rangers GM Glen Sather was never afraid to make a big splash through free agency or in the trade market. Last year the Rangers picked up Keith Yandle, in 2014 the team nabbed Marty St. Louis from Tampa, in 2013 we saw the blockbuster trade that sent away the Slovakian sniper: Marian Gaborik, and then the year prior was the Rick...

Fan Post: Was Keith Yandle Used Wisely In The 2015 Playoffs?

Written By: Bryan (King For Cup) After the blockbuster trade that saw the Rangers trade away their top prospect, Anthony Duclair, along with a third straight first round draft pick, many fans (myself included) were very critical of the Keith Yandle trade. Everybody knew Yandle as the defenseman who was a powerplay quarterback with great vision and could make a good first outlet...

New York Rangers: Ready to conquer the planet

Sign Emerson Etem? Check. Sign Jesper Fast and J.T. Miller? Check. Sign Derek Stepan? BIG CHECK. Stay under the salary cap? Yep, did that too. Well, that’s it. The New York Rangers are ready to head into training camp, and their lineup looks wonderful as they enter another “Stanley Cup or Bust” season, and this team might even be better than last year’s. All that’s left...

How could shooting regression affect the Rangers?

Last week I hypothesized about how the Rangers could make up for the 38 goals they lost when Carl Hagelin and Martin St. Louis departed and determined that there were plenty of reasons for optimism including Keith Yandle’s potential impact on the power play and improved production from young forwards. Then I began wondering about […]

Friday's best: With OT win, Rangers refuse to be eliminated at home

Best game: New York Rangers 2, Washington 1 (OT). The Rangers were 1:41 away from succumbing to the Presidents' Trophy curse. Their major trade deadline acquisition, defenseman Keith Yandle, made a horrible decision to pinch on a play when his blue line partner, Kevin Klein, had already been beaten on the right side. Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen chipped the puck past Yandle...
