The Middleweights Are Taking Over

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Snapshot of a changing NHL: The Rangers and Devils are lined up for the Sept. 22 preseason opener at the Garden, New Jersey’s pugilistically inclined Jordin Tootoo on right wing, New York’s similarly inclined Tanner Glass adjacent to him on left wing. In the old days, the gloves would have dropped right off the opening draw and...

How Does Stepan Compare to Other First Line Centers?

Perhaps it’s just the Rangers fans that I’ve surrounded myself with on Twitter, message boards, etc. (basically all I have since I live in the great state of Tennessee), but I noticed more negative comments and posts than usual about Derek Stepan last year. Coming off the lockout-shortened season in which the young man paced continue reading...

Rangers 6, Flyers 3

The New York Rangers defeated the Philadelphia Flyers by the score of 6-3, last night. For a box score, click here. …before I uncontrollably gush about this team, let’s remember that wasn’t even the Flyers “B” team out there last night. That was like their “D” team. Having said that, I can’t express how excited I am to watch this brand of high octane offense all season...

Still shorthanded, Flyers fall to Rangers

Playing four games in five days can be taxing on any team. In the preseason, there is no need for a team's regulars to be burned out that early.  So with the B team dressed for the second straight, the Rangers were able to power their way to a win as the Flyers fell for the second straight night by a score of 6-3 at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers stormed out of the gate...

Big Night For Hayes As Malone, Lombardi Suffer Injury Setbacks

In his first preseason game last Monday vs. the Devils, Kevin Hayes started off slowly with a quick -2, but as the game wore on he began to display some of the attributes that made him such a coveted commodity this offseason. For a big kid, he showed agility and a play-making ability I wasn’t prepared for. Still, Hayes looked like he could use some polish in the AHL as his skating...

Injuries hampering veteran chances

The Rangers went on a low-risk spending spree this summer, bringing in veterans Matt Lombardi, Lee Stempniak, and Ryan Malone. Some questioned this initially –Stempniak not so much– as the Rangers have a lot of kids ready to take spots in the lineup. However, more competition is good. Competition breeds improvement. But now, two of […] The post Injuries hampering veteran chances...

Derek Stepan’s injury is bad, but not insurmountable for the Rangers

Derek Stepan’s fractured fibula is the first of many challenges the Rangers will face this season. It sucks, but thankfully the timing of the injury doesn’t make his loss insurmountable. The four to six week diagnosis just isn’t long enough to hammer an early nail into the Rangers’ playoff coffin. If the timetable the Rangers released continue reading...

Rangers Update: Lombardi injured, Hayes shifts to wing, Malone to miss time

Matthew Lombardi injured in his groin in practice over the weekend and will miss tomorrow’s pre-season game against the Flyers. Alain Vigneault also noted that Ryan Malone will likely miss the next pre-season games with a hip flexor strain.

Projecting The Rangers’ Opening Night Roster: Attempt One

The Rangers’ roster has been removed of a lot of clutter, with a number of players sent back to juniors or down to Hartford’s training camp. Two preseason games have also been played, with almost everyone left in camp featuring in at least one.

Jesper Fast aiming for full-time role with Rangers

In the process of elimination that determines selection of the final roster, none of the Rangers’ prime kid forwards has eliminated himself from contention. That includes Anthony Duclair, who turned 19 just over a month ago, and looked as if he deserves a longer look before an irrevocable decision is made to return the winger to Quebec of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League...

Previewing The New York Rangers

from Gare Joyce of Sportsnet, Biggest story to watch: At 32, is Henrik Lundqvist in a career wane? If somebody had told you that the Rangers were going to make a run to the final, you’d have assumed Lundqvist would be at the top of his game. Likewise, if you were told that New York was going to lock up Lundqvist with a seven-year, $59.5-milion contract last December, you’d...

Rangers Must Make Roster Move To Keep Duclair in NHL Longer Than Ten Games; No Penalty If Demoted Afterwards

According to the NHL’s CBA, a junior-aged player with a contract can play up to nine NHL games as a trial period. If he is returned to his junior team before the tenth game, he will not burn a year of his three-year entry level contract. Once the player appears in his tenth NHL game, his contract kicks in. He can still be returned to his junior club after that, but a full contract...
