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 […]

Camp Notes: New Groups

With the preseason kicking off tomorrow night against the Islanders, Gerard Gallant has reorganized the three groups, with the first two containing all the NHL potential players, and the third containing many of the remainder. With the new groups comes some new assignments for the players.  Most notably, the Kid Line has been broken up, […]

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 […]

Kakko Week To Week

Kaapo Kakko can’t catch a break this year.  After spending 11 weeks on the sideline, it looked like he was back just in time to get ready for the playoffs, but that is now in doubt iwth the news that he’ll be week to week with a lower body injury. While he hasn’t been ruled out […]

Rangers Clinch Playoffs With 9 Remaining

Going into last night’s game, the Rangers needed two points to clinch their first playoff appearance since 2016-17 – the Play-in series of the shortened 2019-20 excluded.  By contrast, Ottawa had already been eliminated, and were playing out what they hope will be their last reboulding season for a while. The difference was clear, as […]

Kakko on IR. Barron up. Kravtsov in Russia

Right wing Kaapo Kakko has been placed on injury reserve following an upper body injury sustained in last night’s win over the Montreal Canadiens.  Kakko appeared to injury his shoulder in a collision, and will be unavailable until at least the home game against the Calgary Flames on the 25th. When asked about the severity of the […]

And The Next Rangers Captain Is….

Last time the Rangers had a captain, they had just announced they were starting a rebuild.  Since that time, the team has seen fit to go with alternates only, a scenario that will now stretch extend the period without a captain to three years, eight months and eleven days by Wednesday’s home opener. Instead, the […]

October Outlook

Even with a shortened off-season, it still feels an age away since the Rangers last played a meaningful game.  This is no longer Jeff Gorton’s team, and the expectation is that Gerard Gallant will lead this team back to the playoffs after a four year absence – excluding the play-oin 0-3 drubbing by Carolina in […]

First Look: Gerard Gallant

Training Camp is around three weeks away, and we’re already seeing the first players gather at the team’s practice facility in Greenburgh.  The coaches too are making their way into the city as they begin preparation for their inaugural training camp as a group. The New York Post’s Larry Brooks published a series of three […]
