Rangers Open Training Camp With Questions

The New York Rangers kicked off their official 2014-15 campaign today with medical assessments and some off-ice preparation ahead of tomorrow’s first work-out.  Many of the veterans have been skating in Greenburgh for the past few weeks, while many of the prospects wrapped up a 1-1-2 record in the Traverse City Tournament that completed Tuesday. […]

Don’t Screw It Up!

After the euphoria of seeing the Rangers draw second pick in the 2019 NHL draft, the first time the team will pick in the top three since the introduction of the entry draft in 1969, old fears have begun to resurface. If fans had one message for management, it would be DON’T SCREW THIS ONE […]

Defense Not As Deep As It Looks

Looking at the Rangers roster, you might be mistaken in thinking that they have plenty of depth on the blueline.  The team now has ten blue-liners with NHL experience on the roster, and a further three who’ll be under contract this year. The starting six – barring injuries – looks pretty much set for the […]

McIlrath Behind Expectations

The Rangers are in need of a physical presence on their blueline, but it looks as if 2010 first round draft pick Dylan McIlrath does not appear to be in the short term plans at least.  The 6-5 defender, originally drafted as a work in progress, remains just that. Perhaps more concerning was this quote from Gordie […]

More Line Changes?

The Rangers had a day off yesterday, but were back at practice today albeit with a few exceptions.  Sean Avery was officially assigned to the Connecticut Whale early this week, and reported for duty yesterday – Bergen Record.  Although, not exactly.  Avery has a shoulder injury – New York Post – and while the MRI was negative, he’ll get […]

Player(s) sent to the Connecticut Whale: (D) Blake Parlett, (D) Tim Erixon, (F) Ryan Bourque, (F) Carl Hagelin, (F) John Mitchell, […]

Line-up Announced For Preseason Opener

John Tortorella announced the roster for tomorrow night’s preseason opener against the Devils, and as promised it’s a team with several young players, and few veterans. Surprisingly perhaps, Henrik Lundqvist will get his first action of the season backstopping a roster that features just eight players who played for the Rangers last year. Backing up Lundqvist in […]

Day 1 Summary

Day one of Rangers Training Camp started with 63 players on deck, but notably excluded from the list was veteran Wade Redden and prospects Randy McNaught and Chris Chappell.  Redden will report directly to the Whale when they open up camp, while McNaught will return to the WHL.  Chappell was not invited to camp last year either, and would seemingly […]

Who to watch in Traverse City

The Traverse City Prospect Tournament kicks off Saturday with the Rangers scheduled to face the St Louis Blues in the first of three group matches – 7:00pm MSG/NHL.  All four Ranger games are set to be televised for the first time, and it will give many fans their first chance to look at some of […]
