The New York Rangers have some adjustments to make

In spite of a 2-0-0 start to the season, there are definitely things that the New York Rangers have to fix heading into the second half of their home-and-home against the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight at the Garden. A win may be a win, but if they aren’t as pretty as they should be, then something is still wrong. The Rangers came out of the 2015-16 regular season gate exactly as...

Four Thoughts: 9/19

1. There’s an obvious lack of trepidation with the retirement of Martin St.Louis, but that doesn’t mean his 52 points from last season doesn’t need to be replaced. The Rangers had the third most goals in the NHL season, but only three 20 goal scorers. Rick Nash, St.Louis and Chris Kreider. The Ranger young guns will be heavily expected to make up what they lost in St.Louis’...

Could Mats Zuccarello be the key to the Rangers season?

Henrik Lundqvist is the most critical Ranger of all, Rick Nash is the Rangers’ solitary elite goalscorer and Ryan McDonagh is the undoubted leader of the Rangers deep and experienced blueline but the impact of Mats Zuccarello’s season ending injury last year was undeniable. As Marty St Louis slumped into retirement the Rangers lacked offensive […]

Fan Post: The Forgotten Piece Of The Rick Nash Trade

Written by Bryan (King For Cup): As we all know, former Rangers GM Glen Sather was never afraid to make a big splash through free agency or in the trade market. Last year the Rangers picked up Keith Yandle, in 2014 the team nabbed Marty St. Louis from Tampa, in 2013 we saw the blockbuster trade that sent away the Slovakian sniper: Marian Gaborik, and then the year prior was the Rick...

Per Darren Dreger, a trade of Rick Nash is highly unlikely. There had been some rumblings that the Rangers were going to move Nash, but it was mostly speculation. Nash has the highest cap hit on a New York Rangers team that needs to clear cap space. However, there are much smarter ways to go […]
