This week in stupid: The idea that Emerson Etem is not making the Rangers

Emerson Etem is making the Rangers. He will not be sent to Hartford and be exposed to waivers, where he will surely be claimed. The Rangers will not do so in order to keep Tanner Glass. This idea is incredibly stupid, but somehow a few Rangers beat writers all appear to have come to the conclusion continue reading...

Will the Rangers really cut Tanner Glass?!

I’ll believe it when I see it. Rumblings and grumblings from New York Rangers training camp suggest that Tanner Glass’ spot with the 2015-2016 Rangers is in jeopardy. Though the reason is logical –  to anyone with a pulse not named Alain Vigneault – it’s hard to imagine the Rangers and Vigneault making a linear continue reading...

Some quick thoughts on Oscar Lindberg and the Rangers lineup

The Rangers 2015-16 campaign is just two pre-season games deep. The first wave of roster cuts has been made with virtually no surprises. Though I’m sure there is at least one heart broken for the demotion of Mackenzie Skapski. For the players remaining in camp, there are few roster spots to be had. Though Oscar Lindberg continue reading...

Rangers invite Kirill Kabanov to training camp

In a surprising move, the Rangers have invited former New York Islanders third round pick Kirill Kabanov to training camp. He must be a late addition to camp, as it was not known he had been invited until rosters were announced. There has been plenty of speculation and hearsay about his character and actions off the continue reading...

Dan Boyle is sneakily having a good season for the Rangers

People are aware Dan Boyle is having a good season, right? — Evan Sporer (@ev_sporer) March 12, 2015 I’ll come right out and say it, my lingering anger over the departure of Anton Stralman has caused me to fall victim to bias.

A Comparison of Two Defensemen Against Star Forwards

One of my favorite things that Tyler Dellow did on his site before he was hired away by the Oilers was compare players’ results while they were on the ice against the opposition’s star players. Possession statistics are riddled with usage effects, so it’s helpful to control for part of that usage to more effectively continue reading...

Three Potential Rangers Trade Targets

The NHL trade deadline is just less than a month away as the 3 p.m. deadline looms on March 2nd. For the Rangers, it’s no surprise they are scouting and looking to make the right move. As all teams do, they have to decide what is worth giving up for what is needed to make another continue reading...

Larry Brooks first reported this morning that the Rangers and Marc Staal were closing in on a 6-year contract extension agreement.

Shot Generation Problematic for the Rangers

While the Rangers’ recent streak of 13 wins in 14 games has fans and analysts thinking that this year’s version of the Blueshirts is starting to look a bit like last year’s, I’m not totally convinced. The similarities are certainly there: the whole team, especially Lundqvist, struggling in October in November; finally stringing together some continue reading...

Healthy Rangers Lineup Needs Consistency

As of Monday, the Rangers sat in 3rd place in the Metropolitan Division with 26 points, an 11-8-4 record behind that number. Considering that wouldn’t be good enough for a playoff spot in any other division right now, it shows the Rangers have plenty of work to do now that they are healthy.

After Monday night, all 8 Metropolitan Division teams will have played at least 20 games, which pretty much means 1/4 of the NHL regular season is already over.
