RUMOR MILL

Saturday - October 16th

On tonight's Hockey Night in Canada intermission report during the Rangers-Canadiens game, it was brought up that the Rangers have approached Kravtsov again about playing in Hartford. No decision yet, but sounds like perhaps the Rangers are trying to find a way forward. With a potential injury to Kaapo Kakko tonight, it means the Rangers top six depth has taken another hit.

The Rangers brought up Peterr Holland to fix everything.


Making The Coach Happy
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 4:36:48 PM - January 16, 2018

It seems that coach Alain Vigneault and G.M. Jeff Gorton still are not on the same page as 23 year old 4th liner Boo Nieves was sent down to the AHL Wolfpack and 27 year old journeyman Peter Holland was brought up from Hartford to fix all the Rangers issues. Vigneault loved using Tanner Glass in key minutes and this season now has Peter Holland to join David Desharnais, Steve Kampfer, and Paul Carey to use over the young players that Jeff Gorton has brought into the system to add youth, speed, and skill to replace the Rangers core that has been moved out in Stepan, Girardi, etc...

The Rangers G.M. has visions of what he wants the Rangers to look like going forward and changed most of the players on the Wolfpack roster and made caproom this past summer by trading Derek Stepan and Antii Raanta for the #7 pick Lias Andersson and a "must have" from Arizona in Anthony DeAngelo whom coach Vigneault didn't give an NHL chance to in contrast to what the G.M. had visioned. The same goes for G.M. Gorton's visions for Keith Yandle who was traded for a #1 st round pick, 2nd round pick, defenseman John Moore, and forward Anthony Duclair. Yandle was brought in to quarterback the powerplay and a 1st pairing defenseman while the coach used him in such a totally different way that the Rangers traded his rights away instead if resigning him. The next season the big deal was for Eric Staal for 2 2nd round picks and a prospect so that Eric Staal would be a 1st line center and powerplay specialist. Of course coach Vigneault put him on the wing instead and played him as if he lost his talent which he has shown this year in Minnesota to still have the offensive skill when used correctly with 19 goals and 19 assists at the halfway point in this season. Last year was the deal for Brendan Smith for another 2 2nd rounders in which he was brought in for muscle and a pairing with either college teammate Ryan McDonagh or Brady Skjei but this season after the G.M. signed him to a 4 year $4.35 per year contract, coach Vigneault has semed fit to healthy scratch him and would rather play journeyman Steve Kampfer,

The Rangers have alot of young players that would seem to be ready to make the NHL roster next year in Filip Chytil, Lias Andersson, Boo Nieves (for a full season), Neal Pionk, and hopefully they can get Igor Sherterkin to come over from the KHL as hopefully there is an NHL out clause that allows him to play next season in the NHL. That may not be easy even if he has the NHL clause as the way that Alexei Bereglazov was sent down to the AHL without too much opportunity by the coach to play and then was allowed to go back overseas to "better his game". 

For the first time in many years, the Rangers have a few quality players in every position in waiting for their NHL chance, but with Alian Vigneault at the helm, even if they are brought up, they won't be given the opportunity to play the role they need to be played in to succeed and would most likely be used on his 4th line while the journeymen get the key minutes. Before the Rangers G.M. makes any move, he first needs to make a move behing the bench as the "warning shot" of replacing Jeff Buekeboom with the hiring of Lindy Ruff hasn't changed anything in the way coach Vigneault operated the team. The coach and G.M. have had 3 seasons to make the big trades to get the Rangers over the top in the playoff race, but they haven't had the same vision yet. One or the other has to change their vision, or one will have to go.

This seasons Rangers should be in sell mode as the only way they have a chance in any game is when the goaltending is standing on their head and they get a few lucky bounces. Henrik Lundqvist deserves better than what is currently in front of him and the best moment of the season was when he was going in for his goalie partner Pavelec who was getting pumeled and before The King went into the net, he skated up and down the bench yelling and "reading the eam the riot act". That says alot about who the team is listening to , and not listening to. Most games the team comes out flat and each period the same which most games leads to the Rangers chacing the puck after letting  in early goals. The team is clearly tuning out the coach, so the Rangers should sell off some of their top players and play out the season while getting a high first round pick as the first 5-7 players will have the talent to make a difference on their NHL next season. Either way the Rangers choose to go for the rest of this season, it is clear that a few players and the coach need to be changed by next season to make the Rangers a contender that they once were. The Rangers brass and the Garden faithful are loyal for the choice of a rebuild just like when Henrik Lundqvist started his Rangers quest over a decade ago. 

LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!
