Rangers 4, Carolina 3

The New York Rangers (17-6-2) defeated the Carolina Hurricanes (8-12-4) by the score of 4-3. For a box score, click here. Ding dong, the witch is dead. It wasn’t pretty, but rather downright sloppy. But two points is two points. The injury bug has avoided the Rangers up to this point and suddenly the team loses two guys in rapid succession. Prior to the game, the Rangers revealed...

Four Thoughts: 10/29

1. A couple of notes on the Rangers’ depth defensemen. Like Emerson Etem, who needed time to become acclimated to his new surroundings, team and system, Dylan McIlrath’s learning curve so far in his NHL career has been a little bit steeper than I first thought and would like. I certainly didn’t expect McIlrath to have just one start so far in the first 10 games of the season...

Tanner Glass Waived

Tanner Glass (NYR) on waivers. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) October 20, 2015 Well the day has finally arrived. Have to wonder if this is the pre-requisite to recalling Raphael Diaz giving AV the 8D he covets. Can’t think any thing else logical. If Glass does clear and is sent to Hartford, the Rangers will save 950K off the cap. For Gorton, this is all about tweaking the...

Rangers To Diaz: See Ya In A Month

I briefly touched on this in my ‘Four Thoughts’ column earlier this week regarding some internet reports on Raphael Diaz, threatening to head back to Europe. According to the NY Post, the Rangers have told Diaz they will re-evaluate the situation at the end of October. Time will obviously tell if the Rangers would let Diaz out of his deal and he would likely look for a contract...

Rangers, Diaz to re-evaluate situation at the end of the month

Earlier this month, Raphael Diaz was waived by the Rangers, as he was lost his 7D spot to Dylan McIlrath out of camp. Diaz, naturally, is not all that pleased with being in the AHL. His agent has requested (per Larry Brooks) that if he is not back with the club in a month, that […]

Megna/Diaz clear waivers

Both Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna cleared waivers this afternoon, and will report to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Megna clearing was no surprise, but it is relatively surprising that Diaz cleared. There are a few teams that could use a cheap, capable defenseman –specifically Boston, who is without Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg– but I […]

Rangers waive Diaz, Megna

The Rangers have cut the roster to 23 players, waiving defenseman Raphael Diaz and forward Jayson Megna. Megna was always one of the expected cuts, and I guess waiving Diaz shouldn’t be that much of a surprise. Dylan McIlrath outplayed him in camp, and it was really a decision between them, despite our optimistic hopes […]

The New York Rangers have continued cutting down their roster, including highly-touted defensive prospect Brady Skjei. He, Dylan Mcilrath and Raphael Diaz have been competing for the seventh defenseman spot, and now it’s down to just Mcilrath and Diaz. He couldn’t have been because of his play, as he was incredibly solid in the days that he was with the team. He looked incredibly...
