Fright Night

It’s that time of year, when seemingly every game matters. Case in point tonight’s road game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Rangers are sitting in seventh place, with just five games remaining. Just three points behind the Flyers and Penguins who’re tied for fourth, but also just two points ahead of the Panthers in 9th […]

Rangers Lose To Sens, Recall Sauer

The Rangers modest three game winning streak is at an end, as well as their four game streak at MSG. The red-hot Senators came in and seemingly just outlasted the Rangers, coming back from a 1-0 deficit to record a 2-1 win and move into 11th in the East. For their part, New York missed an opportunity to jump over the Hurricanes and Penguins into […]

Senators Visit New York

The Rangers welcome the Senators to the Garden tonight (7:00pm – MSG) and may have a chance to jump back over Carolina and tie for fifth place – Philadelphia is leading Pittsburgh 2-0 currently, and if it’s decided in regulation, the Rangers could draw even with the loser. The Senators have really turned their season […]

Betts And Sjostrom Are Killing It

The NHL All-Star break continues, with commissioner Gary Bettman threatening to suspend any player who doesn’t show up for the event in Montreal. Niklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk may yet change their minds, or face the prospect of missing a regular season game as a result. In the mean time, Larry Brooks makes the case […]

Jessiman Traded

The Rangers have reportedly traded 2003 1st round pick Hugh Jessiman to the Nashville Predators in exchange for future considerations. The trade closes the book on what looks in hindsight, to be one of the worst first round picks in the Sather era. Don’t expect the Rangers to get anything of consequence back…if they ever do get […]

Rissmiller Clears

Off day for the Rangers, with their next game not until Friday, when they visit the Columbus Blue Jackets in Ohio. One player who will be unlikely to make the trip is Patrick Rissmiller who cleared waivers just minutes ago. The Rangers are now free to assign the UFA forward to Hartford if they so desire. Rissmiller […]

Sign Language

While the multiple threads on whether Martin Straka has signed on to play with Plzen in the Czech Republic (announced by the club) or hasn’t signed (announced by his agent) continue, the NY Post reports that Jaromir Jagr has received a three year $35M deal to join Avangard Omsk. Glen Sather tells the post that he’s told Jagr’s agent several times that they […]

Be Patient Brendan

Do the Rangers really have interest in Mats Sundin or not? According to the NY Post, Glen Sather is considering bringing him in to center Jaromir Jagr in what would possibly be the oldest first line in the league. By contrast Bob McKenzie of TSN reports that no substantive discussions have taken place, and Leafs interim GM Cliff Fletcher describes the […]

Rangers Draft: Day Two

In our second installment, we take a look at day two of the Rangers’ draft, and the addition of six more prospects, as well as the departure of Alex Bourret after just over a year with the Rangers. Along with the trade of Bourret, the Rangers also sacrificed a seventh round pick as well as their 2009 […]

Rangers Want Jagr To Stay

According to the New York Daily News, the Rangers want Jaromir Jagr to stay at least another year. Larry Brooks goes on to say in the Post that the point of negotiation will be determining what the Rangers expect from Jagr, and whether Jagr will agree to that. Brooks also writes that the Rangers are one of a select few teams […]
