While certainly prone to hyperbole and a controversial figure (some hockey traditionalist view him as an unprofessional homer while others herald...

Rangers ice time evenly distributed through first set of games

Your ice time leader through three games. One of the major issues many had with John Tortorella was his refusal (inability?) to run four lines and three defensive pairings consistently. It’s tough to fault him, as he didn’t necessarily have the required depth to trust his bottom-tier players. After all, when your fourth line has Kris Newbury and your bottom pairing has Stu Bickel...

Musings: Depth options, absurd spending, bottom six competition, and more

MORE FUN! MORE FUN! (Adam Hunger/Reuters) As we enter the dog-days of summer, there isn’t going to be much news coming up, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have random thoughts that have zero direction whatsoever. This is why we love Musings Day, because our brains work in odd ways. How weird was it to have an entire free agency opening day pass and not have one major signing...

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/Bruins series: Where it was lost and where it could have been won

Barton Silverman/The New York Times The Rangers ran out of steam yesterday, and bowed out of the 2013 playoffs with a disappointing 4-1 series loss to the Bruins. Many were excited to play the Bruins because of the regular season success over the past few years, but this Rangers club was not up to the task of making this series interesting. The Rangers were, for the second year in...

ECSF Game 4 preview: One game at a time

COREY SIPKIN/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS The Rangers are facing a steep climb to get back into this series, but it all starts with one game. As Kevin said yesterday, one shift at a time. If you win each shift, you’ll win the game, and that should be the priority for the Rangers. The biggest news is that Brad Richards is a healthy scratch and Anton Stralman is out tonight with an undisclosed...

While it's really not all that surprising considering his performance and lack of ice time in the playoffs, I'm still in shock to read that Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 tonight. According to Katie Strang at, John Tortorella called Richards at home this morning to break the news to him. Richards admitted he was surprised and disappointed...

The Rangers are 4-1-1 in their last six, but the Islanders are 8-1-1 in their last ten. Both runs have put the teams in playoff spots, although an untimely losing streak could...

Goal breakdown: Panthers at Rangers
