Injuries Sideline Fox, Chytil and Shesterkin

After a relatively healthy year last season, the Rangers have been hit with some injuries to key players that could stifle their early season momentum. Heading into tomorrow’s night’s game in Minnesota, the team will be without four of their starters, with Barclay Goodrow also sitting out to be with his expectant partner. With the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.  […]

Day 2 – Team C Wins Scrimmage

The second day of training camp is in the books, and the Rangers continue to conduct a scrimmage in the morning, followed by on-ice work later in the day.  Today’s fixture featured Team A, with the Zibanejad line, against Team C and the Kid Line. As with yesterday’s match-up with Team A and B, today’s […]

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 […]

They’re Coming Home!

The Rangers are going to the Eastern Conference Final!  This has been a remarkable year for the New York Rangers, qualifying for the playoffs and winning their first playoff series for the first time since 2017.  And now, returning to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time since 2015, when they were denied a […]
