Rangers Depth Just Fine

The primary reason most pundits predict a season less grand than the one resulting in last year’s run to the Stanley Cup Final is the offseason loss of key depth players. Leaving New York over the summer as free agents were forwards Brian Boyle, Brad Richards and Benoit Pouliot along with blue liner Anton Stralman. […]

Vigneault: “Errrr what’s Monte’s real name” (Danny Kristo)

Poor Danny Kristo. Just a young player trying to make the jump from the AHL to the big show and the one guy who controls his fate doesn’t even know his real name. Kudos to Alain Vigneault (okay, probably somebody down in Hartford) though, as far as hockey nicknames go, “Monte” for a player with continue reading...

The on-ice style evolution of Henrik Lundqvist

2014-2015 marks Henrik Lundqvist’s tenth NHL season. He broke in during the first post-lockout campaign in 2005-2006, and has commanded the Rangers crease ever since. While Lundqvist has been a noted style icon off the ice, his aesthetic choices on it have been far more divisive. From 2005-2009 Hank was the poster boy for TPS […] The post The on-ice style evolution of Henrik...

A second Staal in New York?

Marc Staal has brothers, this is not new to you by now. Most of them as you will surely know are in Carolina and the longer Rangers defenseman Marc Staal goes without a new contract there will be the same old assumptions that he will end up in Carolina with his brethren. Recently, media reports […] The post A second Staal in New York? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Danny Kristo on the Rangers 2014 Training Camp Roster

The question is, will Danny Kristo stick with the Rangers and make the team out of training camp.  The Rangers appear to have a pretty stacked training camp roster this season.

All Out War for Final Roster Spots

There’s always competition for roster spots come training camp, but this season it looks as if there is at least three available to be won on the Rangers third and fourth lines. I have to assume roster spots are assured for Dominic Moore and Carl Hagelin and most likely Lee Stempniak as well. After that, it should be a battle royale for those precious few slots. Even Tanner Glass...

The Rangers contract negotiations with Staal won’t end well

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers are believed to have offered Marc Staal the same six year, $5.5 million contract they signed Dan Girardi to last season. “Offered” is bold and italicized because it is inconceivable to me that the Rangers brass could be so wrong in their talent evaluation of Staal. Staal is actually seeking over continue reading...

Where Rangers and Marc Staal stand in contract talks

Look, there’s dialogue between Rangers management and Marc Staal’s representation that is constructive. And talks will continue. That’s all good. But even as No. 18’s agent, Paul Krepelka, told The Post on Wednesday afternoon that “we’ve made some progress,” an agreement on a contract extension for the alternate captain is by no means imminent. There remains a substantial...

Wing depth a strength for the Rangers

Yesterday I posted on how center depth could be a concern for the Rangers heading into this season. It’s not to say that the Rangers are flawed, that’s just one hole that could pose a problem. On the flip side, wing depth appears to be a strength for the Rangers. Most of their wingers from […] The post Wing depth a strength for the Rangers appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Rangers Take A Gamble On Ryan Malone

Ryan Malone’s career hit rock bottom last April when he was arrested and charged with a DUI and cocaine possession. His multi-million dollar contract was subsequently bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning and Malone didn’t have a team to call home. Now, however, it looks like he is getting a second chance. The New York Rangers recently signed Malone to a two-way contract worth...

Center depth could be a concern for the Rangers

While the baby Rangers are playing in Traverse City, the big club is preparing to defend their Eastern Conference crown. They do so after buying out Brad Richards, their second line center, and letting Brian Boyle, their fourth line center/wing, walk via free agency.

Marc Staal is not the defenseman Rangers fans think he is

At first glance, Marc Staal looks like he had a pretty solid season last year. Staal and his defensive partner Anton Stralman created a formidable second pair that played a key role in the Rangers march to the Stanley Cup Final. Staal posted a CF% relative to his teammates during 5 on 5 of 3.29%, continue reading...
