The realistic opening night NYR roster

Now that the roster is finally taking shape, and the pieces are starting to fall into place, the main questions are about the line combinations and kids making the roster. Signings like Tanner Glass and Lee Stempniak add flexibility to a roster that was almost 100% reliant on kids making the roster, while all of […] The post The realistic opening night NYR roster appeared first...

Fancy Stats, Goals, and Goal Assessments

By: Meesh Shanmugam As the transition to new ideas and statistics continues around the league (see: changes in Toronto’s management), I wanted to provide a side-by-side comparison of some possession statistics, actual goals on the ice, and my goal assessments from the past season. This is not meant to be a complete commentary since several factors (zone starts, usage, quality of...

The Clear-Cut Case of Tanner Glass; He’s Not Good At Hockey

Earlier today Kevin wrote a piece in which he broke down what he called the “curious case” of Tanner Glass. Largely, I understand what he was trying to do. Just as in my “Retain or Release” articles, Kevin wanted to present the best arguments he could to, while highlighting some issues, bring hope for success in regards to Tanner Glass’ upcoming tenure with the Rangers...

What The New Rangers Bring

Since July 1st, where the Rangers did not make a big splash and instead brought in what they felt were outside needs that filled gaps, there has been a suspicion whether they have gotten better or worse. Out went Brian Boyle, Derek Pouliot, Anton Stralman, and Derek Dorsett and all of a sudden this team is missing some key players from last seasons Stanley Cup run.  The new...

The Curious Case of Tanner Glass

I’ve got to be honest, when the Rangers signed Tanner Glass I didn’t know too much about the guy. I loved the idea of bringing in some sandpaper, especially after trading away Derek Dorsett along with Dan Carcillo’s future with the Blueshirts cloudy at best. However, three years at $1.45 million per seemed excessive for a guy Penguin fans seemed way too excited about landing...

New York Rangers 2014-15 Season Thoughts

Getty Images I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about the finish for next season, but the Rangers 2014-2015 year began as soon as we lost in OT to the LA Kings in Game 5.  I still have night mares about it… ugh. So far with this off-season’s pickups, I’m looking forward to next year. I can taste NYR hockey. I can see Stepan skating down the ice, looking for a man, then...

Free Agency Thoughts Part II: Former Penguins Break the Bank

By: Meesh Shanmugam (@HockeyMeesh) Part I was posted earlier today and covered the Penguins acquisitions and re-signings. Here is a look at the departures so far in free agency. Free Agency Departures Jussi Jokinen to Florida (4 years, $16 million) Jokinen turned into an amazing rags-to-riches (okay, maybe not rags) story for the Penguins in the lockout-shortened season.

Are The Rangers Better Today?

When the dust settled on yesterday’s insanity otherwise known as the NHL’s open day of free agency, I took a look at the Rangers moves and thought to myself “meh.” $4.5 million per for an almost 38-year old defenseman? Three years for a grinder who Penguins fans seemed ecstatic landed in New York? A handful of journeymen defensemen? Not to mention three key members of the...

Rangers Re-sign Moore; Sign Glass; Richards to Blackhawks

#NYR have re-signed Dom Moore for two years, $3 million — Steve Zipay (@stevezipay) July 1, 2014 …earlier in the day, I said I wanted two-years at $1.75M so you can imagine just how excited I am with this contract. Win/win for everyone. Great having Moore back in the fold. Tanner Glass gets 1.45 per from NYR for that 3 year deal. — Dan Murphy (@sportsnetmurph) July 1, 2014...

NHL Free Agency: Pittsburgh Cutting Ties

NHL Free agency started off quick this off-season, with plenty of teams making moves (with the exception of Philadelphia, who’ve been eerily silent). Pittsburgh’s first departure was from Jussi Jokinen, who signed a 4 year deal with the Florida Panthers worth $16 million. Jokinen led the Penguins in the playoffs with 7 goals in 13 games against the Columbus Blue Jackets and New...

Dominic Moore re-signs with Rangers

In what is likely to be the only bit of good news for the Rangers today, Dominic Moore has re-signed with the club. Moore originally was seeking three years, but settled for two and $3M total to stay with New York. Unfortunately for Moore, he will have to carry the possession piano that is Tanner Glass on his back for the next two years. Sorry for that Dom, but I’m glad you’re...

Rangers sign Tanner Glass

Tanner Glass is arguably the worst hockey player available in free agency this summer; the Rangers just signed him to a three year $4.35M deal. I don’t think I can stress enough how terrible of a hockey player Glass is. Even more maddening is the Rangers traded a pretty good player in Derek Dorsett only to replace him with an older player who costs about the same but with two...

Rangers re-sign Dominic Moore; Sign Tanner Glass

Good news and bad news: The Rangers have re-signed center Dominic Moore to a two-year deal at $1.5 million per year. Moore was a solid addition last season, and was 1/3 of one of the best fourth lines in the game. Moore can also chip in offensively, as he showed when Derick Brassard was hurt […] The post Rangers re-sign Dominic Moore; Sign Tanner Glass appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Stralman Has Long Term, $5M Per Offer; Pouliot Meets With Senators; Rangers Call About Glass

And here we go: Pierre LeBrun at ESPN.com says Anton Stralman has a long-term offer worth between $4.5 million and $5 million coming his way from another team. @dstaples Stralman David, hmm. 6 clubs have shown...

Playoff Schedule Favors The Penguins

from Ejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Tanner Glass has a pretty good grasp of how lousy the New York Rangers might feel after the coming weekend. “For me, the back-to-back games, that's when you feel it,” the Penguins' most physical forward was saying Thursday at Consol Energy Center. “I mean, practice is one thing, but hockey — no, playoff hockey...

Key Observations Heading Into Game 3 Between the Penguins and Blue Jackets

By: Casey Johnston (@PensNationCasey) The Penguins’ PK unit killed of 85% of their penalties during the regular season.  This was good enough to finish the year ranked fifth in the league.  However, the unit has not been without its problems.  All year long it has had a problem with clearing out the crease.  It is something that Meesh pointed out back in the preseason here...

Tanner Glass got rocked in Music City. Glass was credited with five of the Penguins' 17 blocks — including a couple against howitzer-firing defenseman Shea Weber in the first period — to spark a 3-1 victory over the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday. Glass was exactly what the Penguins, winless in three previous games and lethargic in an outdoor loss at...
