What A Difference A Year Makes

While Gerard Gallant’s two-year tenure saw the Rangers put up two of their best regular seasons in club history, along with a run to the Eastern Conference final in his first year, it felt very much like he was more a cheerleader than a coach. Enter Peter Laviolette back in June, bringing with him a […]

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 […]

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.

New PP Configuration. Finally

With Vladimir Tarasenko and Niko Mikkola joining the Rangers for tonight’s game against the Seattle Kraken, coach Gerard Gallant has rolled out a reconfigured line-up….and even new power play units, but perhaps the most surprising move is that Vitali Kravtsov is back in to the line-up after sitting out the last four as a healthy scratch. As expected, Tarasenko slots in […]

No Barclay, Blais or Panarin Tonight

The Rangers travel to Boston tonight to play their second preseason game in as many nights.  Not along for the ride are most of last night’s line-up, along with star winger Artemi Panarin and forward Sammy Blais and Barclay Goodrow. Not playing Panarin is probably more about giving others a chance, rather than any concern with the veteran Russian winger.  […]

3rd Day of Camp Wraps Up

Team C picked up their second scrimmage win, and are the only team of the three that has actually registred a win at this point.  The Kid Line, and in particular Kaapo Kakko and Alexis Lafreniere picked up two of the three goals, with the first goal of the contest coming from Dryden Hunt.  Team C wrapped up the game […]

No Kidding

Despite being largely dismissed over the Summer months, it appears that Gerard Gallant could indeed give the Kid Line a bit more time together to start Training Camp.  While far from an endorsement for what things might look like to start the year – anyone remember trying Tony DeAngelo on the left side a couple […]

It Makes Some Sort Of Cents

How would you feel if the Rangers traded 22 year old Filip Chytil?  What about if former second overall pick Kaapo Kakko was traded?  What if they both get traded?  Because that could be very well where we’re heading this Summer as the Rangers look to compete for the Cup now, and do so with little Salary Cap […]

Anticipation Meets Reality

Most pundits and even a lot of fans, looked at this series against the Pittsburgh Penguins as pretty much a win for the Rangers.  The Rangers had won the season series 3-1, with all three wins coming in the last six weeks of the season.  By contrast, the Penguins had limped through the second half […]

Season Finales Will Determine Opponent

With the regular season winding up tonight, the Rangers’ first round opponent might be within their power to control.  Tonight’s match-up against the Washington Capitals, is one of two games that will determine whether it’s the Penguins or Capitals who will meet New York next week. The Penguins have the most control, with a point […]
