Former Rangers Missing Out

He never played a game for the Rangers last year, but was he still under contract to the team.  Wade Redden perhaps surprisingly to many, will potentially see post season action with the Boston Bruins after a four year trip through the hockey wilderness. A number of other contracted players, no longer with the Blueshirts, will […]

Season Preview

It took more than three months to get the season started finally, but now as we head to the eve of the season opener against the Bruins, there is plenty of optimism around, and one goal in mind: win the Cup. With 34 fewer games this year, and an abbreviated camp and no preseason, it’s […]

Big Apple Turnover

Every year you expect some degree of turnover.  Trades, free agency and injuries or conspire to change the face of an organization from year to year.  With still more than seven weeks to go until camp opens up on September 21st, the Rangers once again will have some significant differences. Ten players who were on […]

Dubinsky leaves game with injury

Forward Brandon Dubinsky has reportedly suffered a hand injury after fighting Ryan Carter in the first period of tonight’s game against the New Jersey Devil.  Dubinsky took several punches in the fight, and left the ice under his own power and went straight to the lockerroom. While he did appear to be favoring his hand, there’s also […]

No Doubts about his Game

Ryan McDonagh still feeling his way around the League, force fed into a top pair position, by Coach John Tortorella this season, deserves some All Star Game votes. He latched onto a second pair spot last season with the intensity of a hungry Badger, showing the poise of a five year NHL vet, while paired with fellow rookie Michael Sauer. This seasons performance has been […]

Onward Soldier

This team grows on you like a belly over Christmas. Team efforts, night after night. Ranger fans pride in the team growing every day. Why? Because of unsung guys like John Mitchell, thats why. His performance against the islanders was so good, yet so unnoticed. Lost in the more obvious performances of Del Zotto, Dubinsky, Girardi, […]

Montreal: A Tough Place To Win

The Rangers go into tonight’s game with Montreal looking to extend their winning streak to eight games, but they face a team – and building – that they’ve struggled with in recent years.  The Rangers have won just three of their last ten games at the home of Les Habitants, and one of those was in a […]

Homeward Bound

This Thursday the Rangers will finally get to do something they haven’t done so far this season – play a game on home ice.  It’s been an up and down start to the season, but what could easily have been an unmitigated disaster has proven to be an above par showing. In the seven games […]

Statistical Comparison – 4 Games In

The Rangers have had a very different start to the year than last season.  They’ve had to deal with games in Europe, a trip to Long Island, followed by a visit to Vancouver, one of the most distant oppponents they have in the league.  Last year they also visited Long Island, but in their first […]
