Reasonable expectations for Oscar Lindberg

When the Rangers re-signed Oscar Lindberg to his two-year deal (one-way deal, guaranteeing his salary), they did so with the assumption that Lindberg will make the club. His spot on the roster is still up in the air, as he could be as high as 3C and as low as 13F, but he will be with […]

Third annual New York Rangers top 25 under 25 (Part Two)

Last week, I went through the bottom half of the third annual Top 25 Under 25 for the New York Rangers. The bottom half of the list is fairly interesting, because it had some players fall off the list completely, and players like Ryan Bourque, Cristival “Boo” Nieves, and Steven Fogarty fall significantly. This has […]

Recently retired St. Louis opens up about mother in emotional essay

Martin St. Louis retired from hockey earlier this summer, and while his 16-year NHL career is full of highlights, one of the more memorable moments came toward the twilight of his pro hockey years. In May of 2014, St. Louis and the New York Rangers were in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs when St. Louis got the call that everyone dreads: his mother had died suddenly of...

Briefer on New York Rangers Traverse City invites

With Dave currently doing the Top 25 Under 25 for the Rangers there is one thing he said that I really hope sticks with people, and that is people tend to forget that roster players, that aren’t considered prospects anymore, can be young too. Dave is absolutely right, people tend to forget that roster players […]

Third annual New York Rangers top 25 under 25 (Part One)

Comparing the league’s best centers – are the Rangers getting value from Stepan & Brassard?

With Derek Stepan’s new contract it’s a fair assumption that the Rangers have locked up their top two center positions for the foreseeable future. Stepan and Brassard will cost the Rangers a total of $11.5m, but with finances, age, contract situations and production all considered, are the Rangers in a good spot with their top […]

How Stoll Will Impact The Rangers In 15-16

I’m typically never good at these hiatus things, but Jarret Stoll signing with the Rangers on Monday was an interesting one and I wanted to expand a little more on it than I did the other day. Assuming Stoll makes the team right of out camp, and there is no reason to believe that he won’t, he’ll be penciled in for the third line center gig and will be given the bulk of defensive...

Henrik Lundqvist debuts 2014-15 mask design

The New York Rangers made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2013-14, so it makes sense that Henrik Lundqvist would want to honor that season on his new goalie mask for the 2014-15 season. Lundqvist debuted the design for his mask for the upcoming year on Instagram Tuesday, and the helmet bears an uncanny resemblance to the one he wore in 2013-14.The helmet was designed...

The New York Rangers sign Jarret Stoll, block out the haters

The New York Rangers have signed former LA King and Edmonton Oiler Jarret Stoll to a one-year, $800k contract. Take a look at that. Jarret Stoll + New York City. What could possibly go wrong, right? There’s really not much to analyze about the guy. He’s a bottom-six forward who fills the one hole the Rangers have in their lineup — he legitimately wins faceoffs, and is very...

Fan Post: The Forgotten Piece Of The Rick Nash Trade

Written by Bryan (King For Cup): As we all know, former Rangers GM Glen Sather was never afraid to make a big splash through free agency or in the trade market. Last year the Rangers picked up Keith Yandle, in 2014 the team nabbed Marty St. Louis from Tampa, in 2013 we saw the blockbuster trade that sent away the Slovakian sniper: Marian Gaborik, and then the year prior was the Rick...
