McDonagh and Stepan skated with roster tryout Ryan Malone in Minnesota
OPTIONAL SKATES LOOK LIKE THE "NHL ROSTER"
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 12:31:18 PM - September 9, 2014

The Rangers seem like a tight knit group and they like to have players who "fit in" socially, along with being solid hockey players. The New York Rangers players had a Stanley Cup Finals run last year that wound up a few overtimes short, and the players know what was missing along with Rangers orgnizational leaders--size! The Rangers did a great job of using their speed to cover for their lack of size, but they clearly were worn down by the 4th round, whether it was from going 7 games twice or being in physical series. Through free agency, the Rangers lost their tallest player (but not toughest by far) in Brian Boyle, 2nd pairing dman in Anton Stralman, 3rd line career project who broke out on the Rangers in Benoit Pouliout, and bought out 3rd line center Brad Richards(who by all accounts will allegedly return next year to play with his ex-Rangers and ex-Tampa teammates).The Rangers have seemed to replace all the holes left by those departures and even landed more depth into the minors in case of injury or if players don't work out.

Ranger additions that seem to have the inside track to make the NHL roster as of now are  J.T. Miller, free agent pickup and ex-Chicago Blackhawk #1 pick Kevin Hayes, and camp tryout Ryan Malone. Malone and Hayes are listed on some rosters as  6'4" and over 220lbs.  J.T. Miller proved last year that he was an NHL player until an injury sidelined him in the playoffs and all reports in the local New York papers say that the Rangers coaches have told him how great a chance he has at being the replacement for Brad Richards. It would seem that Kevin Hayes size wise and skill level would be a great replacement for Pouliout on the Brassard and Zuccarello line. During an interview with Rangers head scout Gordie Clark and assistant G.M. Jeff Gorton on the Rangers website, both talked about Kevin Hayes as a center so if J.T. Miller doesn't pan out as a center, those two can easily flip flop. As far as Ryan Malone is concerned, he has a chip on his shoulder to prove he can still play the game of hockey after being bought out by Tampa after a DUI arrest and was sentenced to Community service and a substance abuse program.  The Rangers have already brought in Tanner Glass for the tough guy role, but Malone can add some edge to the game himself.  It would seem that the first 3 lines would just replace the players that left with Miller and Hayes making them Nash/Stepan/Kreider---Zuccarello/Brassard/Hayes---Hagelin/Miller/St.Louis---but the 4th line looks like a tossup after Dominic Moore as the center. If you were to add Malone, Lee Stempniak, and Tanner Glass the Rangers would be up under the cap at around $350,000 along with Moore signing and Kostka as the extra dman.  Players also pushing these players and looking to claim a spot on the Rangers are Lindberg, Lombardi, Kristo, Fast, and Haggerty.  Haggerty would seem like a lock to start in the AHL because of the contract signed last season forcing the Rangers to "burn a year" and we all know how Slats hates that type of stuff as holdouts like Del Zotto and Brandon Dubinsky who were both moved after the first year of which you have to keep them, so to the minors he goes just to prove a point if nothing else. Lombardi was signed to a 2 year contract at $800,000 each that can be burried in the AHL at no penalty and will be a great callup for injuries. Danny Kristo is very interesting because of his performance in the AHL last season and his experiences of playing with Stepan, Kreider, and J. Moore in the Jr. Champioships with team USA when they won Gold. He seems to need more work in the defensive zone, but the preseason will show all weakness in his game. Jesper Fast would have seemed like a solid shot for the roster, but something may be up as he isn't present at the "optional team skates" so far.

Would Kevin Hayes make sense for Rangers?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 11:29:31 AM - August 11, 2014

The Rangers offseason so far has had changes in the rosters of the Rangers and Wolfpack along with an assistant coaching change as well. The first year of a new coach and system usually brings with it a down year and some hardships, but not last years Rangers. The talent on the Rangers withstood the change of their head coach, a brand new system, starting the year off on a long western trip, the Olympic break, the trading of their heart and soul Captain, and still made it to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Rangers clearly needed a change in roster with the way they started out and it began with Asham and Powe being banished to the Rangers minor league team in Hartford. Chris Kreider was brought back up, DelZotto was also traded for Kevin Klein, the team found comfort with the new system and a few more pieces were added and taken away from the Rangers puzzle and finally the pieces seemed to fit  more

 
Is Leetch Ready For Rangers Staff?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 10:00:38 AM - August 1, 2014

Hall of Famer and New York Rangers icon Brian Leetch has decided not to return to his position in the NHL next season. This decision makes one wonder if it is to fill the newly opened coaching position as the Rangers assistant coach that is "the eye is the sky"that opened up when Dan Lacroix moved on to become an assistant coach with the Montreal Canadiens. It was rumored before Alain Vigneault was hired that Brian Leetch would join the staff of Mark Messier if he was hired to lead the Rangers from behind the bench that never came to fruition  more

 
Revamped Rangers Ready To Go?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 9:17:25 AM - July 28, 2014

General Manager Glen Sather and Assistant G.M. Jeff Gorton have had a busy signing season this past season along with a few trades starting from March to this present time and seem to be working on at least one trade to come before the season begins. It all started with the trade of ex-Ranger captain Ryan Callahan and two #1 picks plus a #7 rounder for Martin St. Louis  and a #2 round pick. The Rangers added players for picks such as Dan Carcillo and Rafeal Diaz for depth which was well needed on a Rangers playoff run to the Stanley Cup Final. The signings extending the current group of players or bringing in replacements for the players that moved on the "greener" pastures  such as Anton Stralman, Brian Boyle, Benoit Pouliot, and the buyout of Brad Richards have kept Sather and Gorton busy by signing 23 players. All of the players signed are not for top line positions but also for the depth in case of injuries and for the AHL Hartford Wolfpack  more

 
Does a Staal Come or Does A Staal Go?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 2:26:16 PM - July 8, 2014

The Rangers can clearly fill out their roster with current Ranger prospects and be under the $69 million cap that includes signing the 3 free agents awaiting arbitration, if long term contracts aren't signed by their arbitration date. The Rangers have to make a decision on what to do with Marc Staal who could enter free agency after the 2014-2015 season. The talk everywhere is that all of the Staal brothers want to play together and is headed to Carolina next summer, so the Rangers have to make a move soon one way or another. There are rumors that Eric Staal is on the market, so do the Rangers make the move to bring him to Broadway? If Eric comes to New York, that still leaves Jordan Staal in Carolina, who went there to be with his brother Eric and signed for a $6 million caphit for like 10 years. So would it have to become a blockbuster deal to bring both of the Staal brothers to New York and then sign Marc to an extension in the neighborhood of Dan Girardi's $5.5 caphit per season? Do the Rangers abandon the Staal moves and move their signed Staal and send him out west in a trade for Joe Thorton who is BFF with Rick Nash and try to get Nash back to his top form? WWSD(What Will Sather Do)?

The Rangers now have Rick Nash, Martin St. Louis, Derek Stepan, Tanner Glass, Dominic Moore, and newly signed to a 1 way contract Chris Mueller under contract and expected to be on the opening night roster. Restricted Free Agents Derick Brasard, Chris Kreider, John Moore, and Mats Zuccarello are expected to sign long term contracts totalling somewhere around $11-12 million a year together. Rookies J.T. Miller and Jesper Fast have the inside track on the open spots up front leaving somewhere around $2.3 left for  1 or maybe 2 more spots depending on whether the Rangers carry an extra up front to start the season. From inside the organization, it would seem that Ryan Haggerty(who signed with the Rangers and stayed with the NHL club for the rest of last year and will work out again this summer with Martin St. Louis and Brad Richards) and Oscar Lindberg have a year under their belt learning the Rangers organization while Anthony Duclair(if not sent back to Jr's), Danny Kristo, and Ryan Bourque ar more of an long shot to stick at the NHL level  more

 
Where will Rangers spend???
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 10:06:14 AM - July 1, 2014

The Rangers have said that Rangers prospect and draft pick Brady Skjei is ready to turn pro but it seems the young player would rather play one more season at the University of Minnesota, It sounds very similar to what Ryan McDonagh said while he was attending Wisconsin University but after attending the Rangers prospect camp and Traverse City Tournament, the Rangers were able to persuade McDonagh to sign and turn pro with a contract of roughly $1.3 mil per for 3 years that showed as a smaller cap hit due to signing and performance bonus'  more
