It bears repeating. We’re in the dog days folks. If you’re into your European soccer, or NFL training camps/meaningless preseason shenanigans then I’m sure you’re coping. If you’re not then I hope we’re keeping you sane here at Blueseatblogs. Without further delay, on to the latest Around the League post. Christian Ehrhoff signs for LA […]
Yesterday, the New York Rangers ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors, changed their name to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. On top of the glorious new logo for the team comes what is probably the best hockey jersey ever…. (h/t Barstool Sports) Take my money!!! I haven’t forgotten about you guys and I’m ready to get going again. The blog will resume normal activities...
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 […]
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 […]
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...
It truly is the dog days of summer. It’s not just the Rangers that are quiet but the league in general is in its summer slumber but there’s still a few things worth discussing – both Ranger and league wide. Danny Briere officially retired this week. Another undersized player, like Marty St Louis Briere also […]
Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers have their eyes set on a Stanley Cup Championship in 2015-16. Mandatory Credit: Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports After reaching the Stanley Cup Final in 2014, the New York Rangers were able to get back to the Eastern Conference Final in 2015. However, injuries and some lackluster play halted their progress, as they lost a pivotal game 7 at Madison...
The New York Rangers' newly-acquired winger Emerson Etem added a pretty nice tattoo to his collection with this Muhammad Ali piece on his arm: Well worth it but it probably stung a little bit... like a bee. (I'll see my way out...) [H/T @SNYRangers] Follow The Buzzer on Facebook
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 […]
Over the past two seasons, I’ve gone through the Rangers organization and ranked the top 25 players under the age of 25 years old (2013, 2014). The ground rules for this list are simple: To qualify for this list, a player must be under 25 years old. It doesn’t matter if this player is in the […]
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 […]
OFFICIAL: #NYR name Steve Greeley as Assistant Director of Player Personnel and Nickolai Bobrov as Director of European Scouting. — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) August 13, 2015 Greeley has spent the last two years as assistant coach at BU. He was formerly a scout with the Kings from 2006-2013. Bobrov replaces Anders Hedberg in the front office. Bobrov has held this same position...
Per Corey Pronman (please note that while he writes for ESPN, Pronman is one of the best in the business at ranking prospects, and ESPN’s Insider hockey writers are top notch), Pavel Buchnevich is the #14 ranked skater prospect heading into this season. Buchnevich is clearly the Rangers’ top prospect, and he should come to […]
The New York Rangers have named Steve Greeley as Assistant Director of Player Personnel and Nickolai Bobrov as Director of European Scouting. Greeley was an Associate Head Coach at Boston University for the last two seasons. Per Sean Hartnett, Bobrov was the North American representative for the KHL’s SKA St. Petersburg for the last three seasons. […]
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...
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 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...
The New York Rangers have announced they’ve agreed to terms with former Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll. Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston is reporting the deal is a one-year pact worth $800,000. It’s been an eventful summer for Stoll. Back in April he was arrested in Las Vegas for possession of cocaine and molly after he tried to smuggle an 8-ball with the drugs in it...
OFFICIAL: #NYR have agreed to terms with free agent forward Jarret Stoll. pic.twitter.com/YXuZLJNJmY — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) August 10, 2015 OK, a few things here…. Signed on a one year 800K contract, this could literally mean nothing and he winds up in Hartford as an injury call-up similar to Ryan Malone a season ago. Or this could mean that the fourth line center...
The New York Rangers have signed center Jarret Stoll to a one-year, $800,000 deal. Stoll has been a bottom-line center for the LA Kings the past four seasons, with production dropping each year. Last year he put up 6-11-17 with a 51.1% CF in roughly 54% OZ starts. Stoll will likely compete with Tanner Glass, […]
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...
View image | gettyimages.com Analysis This team lost some important pieces from last year. Martin St. Louis retired, Cam Talbot was traded to the Oilers, and Carl Hagelin was shipped to Anaheim. The Rangers did trade for Antti Raanta to be the backup goalie behind Lundqvist, and Victor Stalberg signed a one year deal hoping to show he still has some value. Emerson Etem, acquired...
View image | gettyimages.com With the major portion of the offseason over, the NHL has entered its lull stage. We have decided that it would be a good time to ramp up the NHL conversation by posting our first NHL power rankings article. To see where Ted Van Green ranks Henrik Lundqvist, Rick Nash, Ryan McDonagh and the New York Rangers, click the link below: NHL Power Rankings...
Written By: Bryan (King For Cup) After the blockbuster trade that saw the Rangers trade away their top prospect, Anthony Duclair, along with a third straight first round draft pick, many fans (myself included) were very critical of the Keith Yandle trade. Everybody knew Yandle as the defenseman who was a powerplay quarterback with great vision and could make a good first outlet...
Its Thursday so time for another dose of around the league, with some Rangers thoughts scattered in for good measure. While we have some hockey back on tap (rejoice!) the dog days are clearly here. In news that will surprise absolutely no one, the NHL ‘invited’ both Las Vegas and Quebec to participate in the […]
