The 2006-07 OTG Awards – Vol. 2

In our last edition we took a look at the best and brightest of the Rangers 2006-07 season as voted on by you the readers of OTG. This week we take a look at the less impressive side of the team, focussing on the second half of our OTG Award Polls. Unsurprisingly three defensemen figured […]

The 2006-07 OTG Awards – Vol. 1

For the fifth year, Outside the Garden is pleased to announce the OTG Awards. This season saw the Rangers turn their season around late in the year and make the playoffs once again. The team once again got standout performances from Henrik Lundqvist, Jaromir Jagr and newcomer Sean Avery and the results of our polls reflect that. There are few, […]

Shocked And Awed

by Corey Chatelain Oh my word… what have I just witnessed? I’m not quite sure what I just witnessed but it was about as good a hockey game as I’ve ever seen the New York Rangers ever play. It was absolutely incredible from start to finish. Hitting, checking, skating, scoring, good goaltending, penalties, hits, getting […]

Rangers Rolling As Playoffs Near

by Dan DiOrio Last season the Rangers started out magically and carried it all the way through till the Olympic break.  However as the games got more important the Rangers seemed to keep fading.  The official start of the collapse last year was Saturday March 3, 2006.  That date marks a tough fought 2-1 loss […]

All Aboard!

Back on January 31st I made the proclamation that the Rangers season was over and they should now become sellers at the trade deadline.  The team had just lost 2-1 to the Toronto Maple Leafs and had fallen to 10th place in the East.  It wasn’t so much that they were out of the race […]

Painting A Picture

There’s just eight days until the NHL trading deadline, and it’s time for the Rangers to decide whether they’re a playoff caliber team or just pretenders.  With a home and home series against the rival New Jersey Devils and a game against the always difficult Columbus Blue Jackets, New York will have it’s work cut […]

For Sale

In my last column I approached the impending trade deadline (February 27th) as if the Rangers would be buyers.  Given their fortunes since, and taking the position that recent comments by General Manager Glen Sather to the New York Post are indeed trustworthy, then it is perhaps not so far out of the question that […]

February – The All Telling Month

by Dan DiOrio This time last year the Rangers began a seven game win streak which saw them not drop a game the whole month of February. It was really the last high point before melting down the last 9 games which cost them a division title and of course the brief and I mean […]

Balance Of Trade

The NHL trade deadline (February 27th – 3pm Eastern) is just over a month away and there’s been only limited movement to date.  Of course the NHL salary cap has been largely singled out as the culprit for the lack of player movement, after all there are a number of General Managers in the league […]


FINALLY!!!! That exclamation could of course be applied to several aspects of last night’s 4-1 win over the visiting Washington Capitals. Finally the Rangers ended their seven-game losing streak. Finally the Rangers stood up for each other, with four fights including one between Brendan Shanahan and Donald Brashear. Finally the Rangers took care of the Capitals (in regulation time no less), after years […]
