Busy Day For Rangers

New York today announced the re-signing of restricted free agent goaltender Kevin Weekes to a contract.  Weekes agreed to a two year, 3.9 million dollar contract, which is approximately $300,000 more per year than what he signed on for as an unrestricted free agent last summer.  The 30 year old netminder will likely be the […]

Rangers Buy Out Holik, Jessiman and Lundqvist signed

Rangers Buy Out HolikThe much speculated buy-out of the remainder of Bobby Holik’s contract is now official.  The New York Rangers announced today that they have elected to pay approximately 8.9 million dollars to buy out the remainder of his contract, which had him scheduled to make 6.726 million for each of the next two […]

The Rangers And The Cap

It has taken nine months of posturing and several weeks of hard negotiating, but it appears that a new NHL CBA is just around the corner.  Though much is yet to be revealed, the one thing that is apparent is that the NHL will likely start the 2005-06 season with a salary cap of around […]

Fans Should Be Skeptical

by Matt Pennino Hey everybody, the Rangers are rebuilding! Or are they? I for one am not a firm believer in this “rebuild”. While I give credit to the organization for being bringing in a lot of youth (whether it is because of the massive movement at the trade deadline or by signing free agents) […]

Dark Days

These are dark days to be a Ranger fan, there is no doubt about that.  A franchise record seven years without the playoffs in the easiest league in which to qualify, a league high salary over that time and a General Manager who is wildly unpopular with the fan base.  And to top things off, […]

Excuse Me

As they hurtle towards their seventh straight season without the playoffs the Rangers finally made a belated coaching change today, but for many it was not the one they had hoped for.  General Manager Glen Sather has stepped down as the head coach of the team and assigned the dubious privilege to assistant Tom Renney.  […]

The Path Not Taken

by Arien Hughes Time is relentless. First it nurtures and develops, strengthens and matures, until finally it begins to decay and destroy life. Every aspect of existence is touched by this intangible force and all must eventually succumb to it. A true hallmark of greatness is when a person can not only battle back against […]

Causes For Concern

It looked as if the Rangers were about to turn their season around.  After a inconclusive start to the New Year, New York broke out with two emotional wins against the rival New York Islanders, and an 2-1 overtime loss (but creditable performance) against the Tampa Bay Lightning.  They followed this up with a 3-3 […]


by Jess Rubenstein Sometimes I wonder what the Rangers spend more time practicing on, is it the cliches they are going to tell the media or the problem areas of the team. No team does a better job at saying what they have to do than the Rangers, sadly no team does a worse job […]

A Case For Lundmark

by Jess Rubenstein Jamie Lundmark scores a goal and an assist to help the Rangers defeat the Hurricanes. He got named the game’s first star for his efforts and rightfully so. For those who have been calling for Lundmark to be given regular playing time this was the best evidence to prove their point about […]
