Balance Of Trade

The NHL trade deadline (February 27th – 3pm Eastern) is just over a month away and there’s been only limited movement to date.  Of course the NHL salary cap has been largely singled out as the culprit for the lack of player movement, after all there are a number of General Managers in the league […]

Rangers Right The Ship On West Coast

by Cliff Auld I cannot help but wonder if the Rangers 3-1 West Coast road trip will be regarded as a turning point, or just another good streak amongst the peaks and valleys of the long NHL season, but either way the timing was perfect for the Rangers. With trade rumors swirling and the Rangers […]

Don`t Stop Believing

by Eric Vecchione Here we are, November 1st, almost one month into this very different journey, and the New York Rangers – Tex’s perennially disappointing, listless, oftentimes embarrassing Rangers – are in first place. Certainly it would be my greatest fabrication (some class cutting excuses in college are close) if I were to say that […]

Another Loss in OT

For most teams, playing at Continental Airlines Arena is a difficult proposition, but for the Rangers it has been something akin to impossible.  In the past 25 regular season games in the Devils home arena, New York is just 3-19-3-0.  So it was somewhat surprising perhaps that Head Coach Tom Renney elected this game to […]

Flyers Taken Care Of

For the past week or so Blueshirts fans been hearing how bad the Rangers would be this season, but for one night at least the Rangers had the last laugh.  As promised, Jaromir Jagr took hold of the game in the third period with back-to-back power play goals, capitalizing on the defense provided by Kevin […]

Better Against Bruins

After being thoroughly outplayed last Tuesday, the Rangers returned to MSG for their preseason home opener against a Bruins team with just six established NHL players in their line-up and the likes of Joe Thornton, Sergei Samsonov, Brian Leetch, Glen Murray and Andrew Raycroft staying home.  By contrast New York once again iced their top […]

Rangers Fall Flat To Isles

It’s been a long time since the Rangers hit the ice in an NHL game, what with them missing the playoffs for a seventh consecutive season followed up by last year’s lockout.  In the intervening time the Rangers have re-made their roster, jettisoning much of the remainder of their roster and publicly embracing the long […]

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 […]

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) […]

Mind The Net

It seems for the longest time the Rangers have not had to worry too much about goaltending, that all changed two seasons ago when Mike Richter played in the 2000 All-Star skills competition when he hurt his knee making a save.  What was initially not thought to be serious eventually deteriorated into season ending surgery […]
