Should the Dustin Byfuglien deal change the Rangers’ approach with Keith Yandle?

Through the end of January, it seemed to be a sure bet that the Rangers were going to trade Keith Yandle. The club has Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal locked into long-term deals and have Brady Skjei –their 2012 1st round pick– knocking at the door. That’s a pretty crowded left side. Getting the most […] The post Should the Dustin Byfuglien deal change the Rangers’ approach...

Alain Vigneault’s patience is being rewarded

Alain Vigneault has made many, many puzzling decisions over the course of the first 49 games this season – from his insistence on giving top minutes to Dan Girardi and Marc Staal, to his refusal to give Keith Yandle the lion’s share of power play time, to repeatedly dressing Tanner Glass.

Another reason why Kevin Klein has become critical to the Rangers

It’s amazing how things change in a short period of time. Just last season the bedrock of the Rangers’ success was arguably their defensive depth from one to six. This season however we have seen the inconsistencies of Ryan McDonagh, the misuse of Keith Yandle and the relative regression of Marc Staal but especially Dan Girardi.

Bruins Wrap: Rangers Score Twice In Third Period To Take Down Boston

If the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers end up squaring off in the Stanley Cup playoffs this spring, we doubt any viewers would complain.

During Sportsnet’s Saturday night NHL coverage, Damien Cox noted that Keith Yandle is not expected to renew his contract with the Rangers prior to the trade deadline, and comes with the expectation that the Rangers are going to move him at some point. Well, we know that this contradicts a bit from what was reported last week, with Gorton saying himself that he reached out to Yandle’s...

Will the Rangers be able to extend Keith Yandle?

Earlier this month, I used Josh’s PSAM tool to help determine a rough estimate for Keith Yandle’s next contract. The conclusion: Expect him to get at least $5.75 million, but probably closer to $6 million over a long term contract. This puts the Rangers in a pretty pickle, as they already have $54.775 million committed […]

Active NHL players who will never win a Stanley Cup

Throughout all of sports, a player's positioning in the sport is based on how many championships he/she wins. Winning is the true definer of where a player ranks in the realm of their sport.
