Bonino To Be Placed On Waivers

Forward Nick Bonino is expected to be put on waivers today, and will likely be sent down to Hartford after a tough stretch of games for the Rangers. With the team as a whole struggling, Bonino still stands out with the team worst (for players with more than 1 game) Corsi For% of 37.76 when […]

Laviolette’s First Call Out

After a disorganized and largely ineffective effort against the Islanders, Head Coach Peter Laviolette called out the Rangers lack of effort and failure to adhere to some simple basics. When asked about the game, he summed it up as “Not Good”, saying that the performance isn’t “what we want to be”. The coach was quick […]

Drury’s Message Is Clear

Speaking yesterday at the opening of the Prospect Camp, Chris Drury talked about the need to play in all three zones, and the need to play that way throughout the regular season and into the playoffs. It echoes the comments made by incoming head coach Peter Laviolette over the Summer. Drury further elaborated that he […]

Alexis – Play “I Walk The Line”

This past Tuesday, Larry Brooks wrote in the New York Post that head coach Peter Laviolette needs to the right thing by former number one pick, and by that he means move Lafreniere to the right wing. It’s not without merit, after all the Rangers have both Chris Kreider (4 years NMC converting to a […]

The Only Way Panarin Is Leaving the Rangers Is…

The Rangers announced today that they have come to terms with 24 year old defenseman Brandon Scanlin on a one year $775K deal.  The agreement comes three days ahead of Friday’s scheduled arbitration hearing that was set after Scanlin became the only eligible Ranger to file for arbitration.

There’s No Business Like Show Business

Chris Drury was apparently given a proposition he couldn’t refuse: adding Patrick Kane to an already very skilled line-up.  The move came after the former Blackhawk used his NMC leverage to force Chicago GM Kyle Davidson into negotiating with one team – the New York Rangers. It’s been a bit of a circus in the last week, what […]

Is This The Year?

Last season exceeded our expectations by some margin.  52 wins, career years for a number of Rangers – including 52 goals by Chris Kreider, along with the Vezina winning performance in net from Igor Shesterkin, were all components of a very enjoyable campaign last season.  Then a post season run that saw them ultimately exit in the […]

Nils Sum Game

After a week of speculation, Nils Lundkvist confirmed through his agent Claude Lemieux, that he will not report to camp, and will instead remain in Sweden hoping to force a trade.  There have been reports this week, that the Swede asked for a trade after being demoted to Hartford mid-way through last season, and without a foreseeable path to a […]

Three Ways Hajek Starts The Season

Here’s a question for you:  What if Libor Hajek ends up as the sixth defenseman on opening night, beating out both Zac Jones and Matthew Robertson.  What if the guy who had poorer advanced stats than Patrik Nemeth and Jack Johnson, ends up being the one they go to first? I mean it kind of happened last year right?  They dressed Jarred […]

Prospect Camp Set To Open This Week
