The Recent Signings By The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Both Lee Stempniak (in on a one-year free agent deal for $900,000) and Matt Lombardi (in at $800,000 per for two years) will fall under the AHL threshold, so neither would count against the cap for so much of a nickel if either fails to make the Rangers out of camp. But these additions of marginal NHL players doesn’t say a lot for...

Lindberg Hoping Offseason Work Pays Off

This offseason, I’ve been posting a lot about reclamation projects the Rangers might be interested in offering a one-year, low cost contract in an effort remain competitive while staying under the cap. Acquiring a David Booth, Devin Setoguchi or Dustin Penner on a cap friendly deal seemingly bares no risk, but it’s always a gamble when trying to turn a lemon into the lemonade...

Booth Could Be This Year’s Pouliot

After yesterday’s news regarding possible Rangers restricted free agent salary demands, the Blueshirts are likely to be up against or very close to the cap after re-signing all their RFAs. Which is a scary proposition considering I still think they need one more scorer. Sure, JT Miller and Oscar Lindberg have the ability to make an impact this season, but I’d still feel a hell...

What The Rangers Kids Can Bring-Part 1

Lindberg in Hartford With the New York Rangers being in a bind with cap space currently, chances are they will take a chance bringing up some younger players to fill in roles when needed. They are short, especially when its comes to offense, on the 3rd and 4th lines and that’s where these players will fit in. Alain Vigneault has also mentioned wanting some younger players to get...

Are The Rangers Better Today?

When the dust settled on yesterday’s insanity otherwise known as the NHL’s open day of free agency, I took a look at the Rangers moves and thought to myself “meh.” $4.5 million per for an almost 38-year old defenseman? Three years for a grinder who Penguins fans seemed ecstatic landed in New York? A handful of journeymen defensemen? Not to mention three key members of the...

Musings: Are the Rangers prospects underrated?

Quietly having a strong season: Brian Boyle A strong, prolonged period of results was slightly tarnished with the sloppy, unnecessary loss to the Devils earlier this week.

With games against the Canadiens and Kings on the weekend it’s a big couple of days for the...

Showing caution with the kids in Hartford

J.T. Miller is off to a hot start. With the Rangers off to a 1-4 start, any attention not focused on the Blueshirts has been on the Hartford Wolfpack. Specifically, attention has been on Danny Kristo, J.T. Miller, and Chris Kreider. Some other attention has been on Oscar Lindberg and Brandon Mashinter as well. The attention isn’t unwarranted.
