Rangers Looking for Goaltender, Defense in Draft

The Rangers go into tomorrow’s draft with no first or second round picks, courtesy of trades for Rick Nash and Ryane Clowe.  It’ll be the first time the organization won’t be picking in the first round since 2002 – when Pavel Bure cost them their first rounder – and is the first time 50 year history of the Draft that […]

Heros Are Made In The Playoffs

At the beginning of the season, the Rangers were considered one of the favorites for the Stanley Cup. After 82 games, there are still some supporters out there, but the enthusiasm that abounded in September has given way to a more cautious general support. Not that that should surprise anyone. Facing the New Jersey Devils, […]

Excuse Me

As they hurtle towards their seventh straight season without the playoffs the Rangers finally made a belated coaching change today, but for many it was not the one they had hoped for.  General Manager Glen Sather has stepped down as the head coach of the team and assigned the dubious privilege to assistant Tom Renney.  […]

The Path Not Taken

by Arien Hughes Time is relentless. First it nurtures and develops, strengthens and matures, until finally it begins to decay and destroy life. Every aspect of existence is touched by this intangible force and all must eventually succumb to it. A true hallmark of greatness is when a person can not only battle back against […]

By The Numbers

by Timmy Corbett The Rangers have many problems going into this season, the high-flying goal scorers should be exempt of scrutiny, but not so. The ” Edmonton ” Rangers last year scored 210 goals, add to this, Anson Carter’s 25 goals he scored for the Oilers and Alexei Kovalev’s 27 he netted while on the […]

Filling In The Blanks

by Jess Rubenstein It is a pretty sad offseason when Ranger fans find themselves cheering when players they feared Slats might want to sign choose to go elsewhere instead of the Rangers. Something is wrong when the fans of the team have such little faith in their GM to make the right moves so they […]

Big Names On The Move

GM Glen Sather had a busy day on the eve of the free agent deadline, resigning two pending Restricted Free Agents and sending a couple of well known names off for draft picks. Veteran defenseman and long time Ranger, Brian Leetch was sent to Edmonton in a move reminiscent to the Richter deal last season.  […]

After Midnight

Ah yes, July 1st and the opening of free agent season…can you feel the excitement?  No?  Hardly surprising perhaps given next year’s impending Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations and a sixth straight season of frustration as a Ranger fan.  Nope, this won’t be your typical July 1st.  In actual fact, many commentators are expecting a glut […]

No Summer Lovin` Here

by Charles Solomon The summer is a challenging time for hockey fans. Sure we have crucial dates like the draft (June 21-22) at the Gaylord Entertainment Center in Nashville, and July 1st, when all it takes is a wad of millions to acquire some of the games elite players, but most of the summer is […]

The Problem Is On The Bench, Not Behind It!!!

by Steve Giacobello Now that the 2002-03 NHL season is officially over, (congrats to the Devils and their fans), the time has come once again for the Rangers to sit back and spend the summer searching for answers to a long list of questions and to try and avoid missing the playoffs for a seventh […]
