McColgan, Noreau, Ceresnak have until June 1 to sign

Although our attention is rightfully on Game Five today, there is one small item that will require Glen Sather’s attention this week. A trio of 2011 draft picks have until June 1 to sign, or else they will become UFAs and free to sign elsewhere. Shane McColgan (4th), Sam Noreau (6th), and Peter Ceresnak (7th) are the three prospects that await word of an offered entry-level contract...

Around the Farm: Loss sends Ceresnak and Peterborough home

Peter Ceresnak now holds the dubious distinction of being the only Rangers prospect to miss the playoffs in his respective league.

The Petes missed the playoffs by a single point, and are one of four teams in the OHL to miss the playoffs. Ceresnak did...

Around the Farm: Whale dominated in shutout loss

The Whale had another rough day yesterday, getting blown out by the Syracuse Crunch by a score of 4-0. Goaltending wasn’t the issue, as Talbot was solid again making 34 saves.

Around the Farm: Rough night for the Ranger prospects

Almost all of the Rangers key prospects were in action last night, and almost all of them failed to make a dent on the score sheet. In fact, only Boo Nieves (2nd, 2012) of Michigan notched any sort of point, with two assists in Michigan’s 6-3 win over Western Michigan in the CCHA. The other 12 prospects in action were all left scoreless. Be sure to check after the jump for the...

Around the Farm: Friday/Saturday recap; Nieves with a huge weekend

Sorry for not posting this yesterday. My plan was to have this up before the game, but my car died and I had to wait for a jump. By the time I got in, the game had started. To make up for it, this post will cover both Friday and Saturday. Boo Nieves, the Rangers second round pick in 2012, had a great weekend in Michigan’s sweep of Michigan State. In the first game, Nieves had two...

Miller notches goal as USA routs Germany

The USA just completed their first game of pool play, routing Germany by a score of 8-0. While many will point to the fact that the USA were playing a weak opponent, they truly looked like an elite team in their dismantling of Germany. USA dominated play, allowing just 26 shots on goal by Germany, compared to the whopping 46 taken by the US. JT Miller, wearing the ‘A’,  notched...

Around the Farm: Miller nets two in Whale win

 The Whale continued their roller coaster season with a 4-2 win last night over Bridgeport. Connecticut –who lost three games over the weekend– played a much crisper game. Of course, “much crisper” is used loosely here, as CT still wound up on the penalty kill six times. J.T. Miller, the Rangers 2011 first round pick, gave the Rangers the victory in the third period when...

The flaws of the plus/minus statistic

If you’ve been frequenting this blog for a while, then you know that we aren’t exactly fans of the plus/minus statistic. It’s useful in some cases, especially when measuring some prospect’s defensive value when they are in a shutdown role (Sam Noreau and Peter Ceresnak come to mind here). But at the NHL level, when other metrics are readily available, the plus/minus stat...
