Will the Rangers trade Chris Kreider?


Previous Polls

Thursday - December 5th

Per Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet:

Prior to the December 1st deadline, the Oikers apparently tried again to move Jesse Pujljujarvi, and the Rangers were reportedly one of the teams interested.

The trade would have involved Lias Andersson going the other way, but ultimately they could work out a deal.

Rangers Open Up Preseason With Win 4-3 in OT
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 10:09:44 PM - September 23, 2010

The Rangers opened up their preseason with a 4-3 OT win over the New Jersey Devils at MSG on the back of two goals and an assist by star winger Marian Gaborik. The Rangers also got goals from Alexander Frolov and Brian Boyle, with Chad Johnson picking up the win in relief of Martin Biron.

It was a case of the big lines for both teams getting the job done, with all three Devils goals coming from the trio of Travis Zajac, Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, while the Rangers' topline of Alexander Frolov and Marian Gaborik paired up first with Derek Stepan, and then Erik Christensen, accounted for three of their four goals.

Overall it was a well played game by both sides, with the traditional missed passes and sloppy passes strangely absent from this first hit out from New York, and just the second for their opponents. Neither side appeared to treat this like a preseason game, with only a ferw roster choices indicative of the nature of the game.

Of course, for Ranger fans the focus was on how the new Rangers would adapt to playing against real opposition, and there was plenty of positives to come out of the game.

Derek Stepan looked confident between the veterans Gaborik and Frolov, and helped setup the first Ranger goal, fading to his right, but feeding the puck to Frolov across his body, who in turn setup Gaborik on the backdoor for the tap in. Fellow Wisconsin Badger Ryan McDonagh was steady too, making his biggest impression during the first period with a nice setup to Gaborik as he came in off the becnh, and then demonstrating his stength by pushing down Mattias Tedenby as both players pursued the puck in the Rangers' zone

Of the two, Stepan was clearly the more noticeable, and the Rangers' top line seemed to lack a little cohesiveness after Tortorella placed Erik Christensen at center for the second half of the game.

Mats Zuccarello Aasen showed quick hands and decision making, as well as some general speed and quickness as he demonstrated his playmaking ability. He still seemed to lack a little chemistry with his linemates, but his skills were clearly on display. Also importantly he showed his ability to take, and avoid hits, even shielding the puck off a defender during the second as he setup a half chance in front.

Free agent Tim Kennedy showed some of his offensive prowess also, but looked just a half step slower. May not have helped that he was playing with fourth liners, but he always seemed to be playing in traffic when he was about to generate offense.

Other standouts in the game included Alexander Frolov, who may have been the best Ranger on the night along with Marian Gaborik, while Brian Boyle didn't hurt his chances with a fight and a nice goal that looked more like his college days than what we saw last year.

On defense Michael Sauer looekd more confident than the player we saw in his minimal NHL appearances to date, while try-out Alexei Semenov had some solid shifts defensively in a relatively quiet outing.

As the game went on, Brandon Dubinsky seemed to be more of a factor, perhaps a testament to his conditioning, and came close to scoring off a breakaway in the third period, only to see his shot ring off the inside of the post after he beat Jeff Frazee high on the glove side.

Marc Staal and Dan Girardi had a rough outing as the top defensive pair, being on the ice for all three goals, with Staal directly contributing with a turnover on the first goal.

In goal, Martin Biron was solid, if not spectacular, but in the end he outplayed the guy down the other end. Except for the one goal he let in - which he should've had - Johnson looked as good as he did last year.

Fights in the game between Boyle and Adam Mair, and Brandon Prust and Bradley Mills were for the most part "no decisions", with Prust maybe having a slight advantage in the latter bout.

Derek Boogaard and Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond poked at each other through most of the game, but strangely it was only Boogaard who ended a 10 minute misconduct on a seemingly innocuous sparring session before a faceoff in the third.

Try-out Ruslan Fedotenko likely did his chances of landing a contract no favors with a relatively unnoticeable performance and Dale Weise's only real impact on the game was a credit assigned to him on Boyle's goal, though the 4th line center was largely responsible for the score himself.

Next game is Sunday at 7:00pm back over in New Jersey.
