RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - June 26th

Elliot Friedmman of Sportsnet, reports that the Avalanche weren't willing to include the 16th overall pick to the Rangers in exchange for Chris Kreider.

Wonder who else wasn't willing to include a first rounder for him. Part of the problem of course is his UFA status next year, and then the expansion draft after that.

Pionk Scores On Debut
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 1:13:00 PM - September 19, 2017

It took 62:31 for either team to score in the Rangers' first game of the preseason.  It was a relatively dull affair, with the understrenght Isles managing just 17 shots on goal, while the Blueshirts scored just once on 42 directed towards the pair of Islander netminders.

The game managed fewer than 35 minutes at even strength in regulation, as the teams combined for a total of eighteen minors - nine apiece.  The league's new mandate on slashing and face off violations accounting for ten of the total.

When there was action, the Rangers had the better, albeit not necessarily the finishing.  Michael Grabner had a couple of good chances late in the game, as did 27 UFA signing Cole Schneider, but neither could beat Eamon MacAdam, the second of the two Islanders netminders.

With no score in regulation, it took a bit of individual brilliance by Neal Pionk to end the game.  High in the slot, he spun away from the high defender and broke in alone on MacAdam, beating him to the glove side just inside the post.

Overall Pionk had a smart game, making several good defensive plays, and looking comfortable handling the puck.  Anthony DeAngelo was another defender that impressed with the puck, and withi his edge, though both he and Pionk may have difficulties dealing with larger forwards in the NHL.

Up front, Lias Andersson had a solid outing in his debut, even assisting on the game winner.  Primarily though Andersson was used in a more defensive manner, taking key faceoffs and standing up to the Islanders on defense, Cristoval Nieves too had a quietly effective game, though has plenty of competition for the last couple of forward spots.

Try-out veteran Bobby Farnham was noticeable in limited ice time, playing with an edge and not afraid to make his presence known.  Fellow veteran Andrew Desjardins was less obvious in his play, and will need to show more if he wants to earn a contract.

In net, Ondrej Pavelec had a solid start to his career beyond the Atlanta/Winnipeg organization, stopping the 10 shots he faced.  Brandon Halverson scrambled a bit, but was also perfect on the seven he faced.
