Frequent Flyer Miles: Bryzgalov receiving interest, Alberts stays in Vancouver, Eminger to the KHL

Although it seems as though no team in the World is really reaching out for Ilya Bryzgalov, it sounds as though one club wouldn’t mind having him on their roster. Former NHLer Sergei Fedorov, who now serves as the GM for the KHL’s CSKA Moscow, said he has, “left the door open,” for Bryz. CSKA Moscow will already have Ilya Proskuryakov, former Washington Capital Rastislav...

Stay or go: Steve Eminger

(Photo: Blueshirts United) If there’s one problem that has plagued the Rangers longer than the broken power play, it’s a lack of depth on defense. You’ll never confuse Steve Eminger with a Norris Trophy candidate, but the 29-year-old has provided tremendous support for New York’s top blueliners over the last three seasons. Whether Eminger was asked to sit in the press box...

Rangers struggling with puck possession in series

KOSTAS LYMPEROPOULOS/ CSM LANDOV Yesterday, I found myself intrigued by a series of conversations on Twitter by Japers Rink, Corey Sznajder of Shut Down Line, and George Ays (RangerSmurf) about the complete domination by the Caps in puck possession throughout the series. Looking at BTN this morning, I see why they were in such shock by the domination. The Rangers, who were a dominant...

The Rangers do not have a single player averaging over 27 minutes of ice time

Photo Credit: US Presswire A lot of noise has been made about how coach John Tortorella deploys his defensemen. Most of this is due to the coach playing five defensemen during last year’s playoff run, but some new noise has been made recently when Steve Eminger was benched for half of Game Four. But a lot of this is just noise, and the Rangers don’t even have a defenseman in...

With Staal out and Eminger benched, the bottom pairing becomes a problem

Paul Bereswill/Getty Images Last night, Marc Staal was a last-minute scratch from Game Four, forcing Steve Eminger back into the lineup. In Games One and Two, Eminger got enough ice time to give the others a rest, playing 10 minutes in Game One and 14 minutes in Game Two. After sitting out Game Three (with Staal in the lineup), Eminger played just six minutes in Game Four, and...

The Rangers might be getting Ryane Clowe back in the lineup tonight as Arron Asham appears to be scratched, and there’s a slight chance Marc Staal might come back as well, likely for Steve Eminger.

Rangers recall Steve Eminger

The Rangers have recalled defenseman Steve Eminger from the Connecticut Whale of the AHL.
