Is the Blue Jackets Defense Their Great Weakness?

Forward depth in Columbus is at an all-time high, even considering a few key injuries. There’s wiggle room in the discussion of how good overall Blue Jackets depth can be (I touched on this last week – I think it’s quite solid). With Ryan Johansen back in the fold and solidifying the centers, it’s hard to imagine the top 9 forwards being bad. As we turn our attention to the...

Erixon Gets One-Way Contract

The Blue Jackets have signed restricted free agent Tim Erixon to a one-year, $600,000 contract. But the term and money aren't the big story here. Erixon's deal is a one-way, NHL contract, meaning he'll make $600,000 whether he plays with the Blue Jackets or is sent down to play for AHL Springfield. Put another way: this is likely the first year Erixon will stick in the...

Rick Nash, What Is the Problem?

#484085395 / gettyimages.com When I heard that the New York Rangers had traded Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, and Tim Erixon, for Rick Nash, I was sad. We had just came off a year of going to the Eastern Conference Final, and it felt like we were shipping the whole team off. I never liked the trade from the beginning. I remember distinctly telling my father,”It wont be this...

HP Prospect Rankings: Rangers at #19

Hockey Prospectus released its current organization rankings for farm systems, and the Rangers slotted in at #19, just behind Ottawa. Corey Pronman had this to say about the Rangers: 19. New York Rangers Tim Erixon’s trade, J.T. Miller’s graduation, and average years from Chris Kreider and Brady Skjei led to a lower ranking for the Rangers. Acquiring Danny Kristo from Montreal...

Around the Farm: Whale drop three over the weekend

Timeline of events: How Rick Nash became a Ranger

It’s always very interesting to see how previous draft picks and trades pave the way for a big name player to be acquired. We looked into how Brandon Dubinsky became a Ranger, how Marc Staal became a Ranger, and how Tim Erixon wound up with the Rangers organization. Now, we look at a few of those deals, and how they all led to the Rangers acquiring Rick Nash. It’s interesting...

Prospects with a chance to make the team

As the offseason turns to August, and the rosters begin to take shape, the attention turns away from those with guaranteed roster spots and towards the many prospects within the system that are all competing to be that sleeper in camp. Last year Stu Bickel was that sleeper, and Carl Hagelin was the mid-season call up that many expected he would be. This year there aren’t as many...

Recent reports from radio color commentator Dave Maloney and from Jess Rubenstein at The Prospect Park that Michael Sauer has made “tremendous progress” have added to what has been a spectacular late-July for the New York Rangers. Though Tim Erixon was a necessary piece to acquire Rick Nash, trading him left the Blueshirts woefully thin on the blueline.  The top-four of Ryan...

New York Gets To Nosh With Nash

While I was away on vacation last week, the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets decided to do a little transferring of players.

The Nash Fallout: With Erixon gone, Rangers need to fill defensive holes

Note: This was written before Anton Stralman re-signed. Tim Erixon was never going to be a deal breaker in the Rick Nash negotiations and as it turned out the talented young Swede was indeed sent to Columbus. With Erixon gone, the Rangers now have an even more pressing need to fill the bottom pair ahead of the new season. Something that was already an issue. It was widely assumed...

There have been several reports that some variation of the package the Rangers sent to Columbus for Rick Nash on Monday was on the negotiating table for months before the deal was finally consummated.  But Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, who is one of the more clued in reporters in the business, tweeted that defensive prospect Tim Erixon was in fact only added to the deal...
