Panthers' Alex Petrovic ready for his second chance

Young defenseman Alex Petrovic was the early-line favorite for a spot on the Panthers' blue line coming out of training camp in September. After all, the 6-foot-4 Petrovic was coming off a solid first professional season in San Antonio of the AHL and despite a minus-8 on-ice rating in six NHL games with the Panthers at the end of last year, he displayed toughness as well as...

Weaver returns from Panthers’ IR; Kopecky and Gilroy still on shelf

Florida Panthers’ veteran defenseman Mike Weaver, who has had a tough time battling a nasty case of the flu, is back battling rouge forwards. The Panthers placed the 35 year old Weaver on Injured Reserve with the ailment in order to make room for Dylan Olsen to be recalled from their San Antonio affiliate, but was back on the ice for practice on Sunday and logged 15 minutes of...

Whitney, Hainsey or Zidlicky Could Hold Some Appeal for Rangers

With Michael Sauer, Roman Hamrlik, Matt Gilroy and Steve Eminger all likely not to be re-signed, Dylan McIlrath not ready for a full time role in the NHL just yet and Marc Staal's status in doubt, the Rangers should be in the market for a defenseman this summer and Scott Cullen at TSN says Ryan Whitney, Ron Hainsey or Marek Zidlicky could hold some appeal.

Grading the Rangers’ defense

Defense was a hallmark of the 2011-2012 New York Rangers.  It was arguably the key ingredient in their run to the Eastern Conference Finals.  They had an unwavering commitment to shot-blocking and solid play in their own end.  Even without a ton of roster turnover, the unit was not as proficient as they were last season, but still had a solid campaign overall.  Let’s look at...

Rangers recall Kris Newbury

After last night’s win that clinched a playoff berth, the Rangers called up forward Kris Newbury. This is likely due to the Ryane Clowe injury, as the  power forward was injured in the game and did not return. The Rangers had no spare forwards (to the point where Matt Gilroy had to dress for a late-scratch of Arron Asham). Newbury will be with the club as long as both Clowe and...

Game 40 Open Thread: Leafs at Rangers

Nathan Denette/AP After Monday night’s sloppy loss in Toronto, the Rangers are looking to exact revenge on the Leafs tonight in the series finale at The Garden. There is a lot at stake tonight for the Rangers, who are sitting in the 8th spot in the East. They trail the Islanders by two points (with a game in hand), and are tied with Winnipeg (with two games in hand). A win tonight...

The Importance of Hamrlik's Performance

As evidenced by their three to four minutes of ice time per game, it's no secret that John Tortorella has little to no confidence in Stu Bickel and Matt Gilroy as defensemen, while his feelings towards Steve Eminger can be described as lukewarm at best. We all witnessed Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh begin to fade at the end of last season and literally collapse in the Eastern...

Gilroy earning coach’s trust, more ice time

Source: Christopher Pasatieri/Getty Images North America Matt Gilroy may not be the most complete defensemen. In fact, he isn’t a top-four defenseman at all. But this isn’t the same Matt Gilroy that came to the Rangers after college and was immediately exploited for not being NHL ready. Gilroy has some NHL experience under his belt now and it’s showing, as Torts has been playing...

Dan Girardi’s absence heightens need for defensive depth

Girardi’s injury really heightens the depth hole. With Dan Girardi out for his second straight game, the Rangers deployed the bottom pairing of Steve Eminger and Matt Gilroy against the Islanders. Against the Devils, it was Gilroy paired with Stu Bickel. Suffice it to say, that bottom pairing not only isn’t scaring people, it’s a legitimate concern and liability on the ice...
