Renney Out, Tortorella In

It’s official. The Rangers have hired former Rangers Assistant Coach and Stanley Cup winning Head Coach John Tortorella as head coach of the Rangers. Perry Pearn was also given a pink slip, and the Rangers will go into tomorrow’s practice with Torotorella providing direction and Jim Schoenfeld and Mike Pelino offering assistance.

Sather Knows Best

by Cliff Auld Back on March 3, 2004 who would have ever fathomed that the New York Rangers would be predicted by some to win the 2007 Stanley Cup?. Who would have even believed Glen Sather would still be employed by the New York Rangers roughly 2 ½ years later? See it was on that […]

Dark Days

These are dark days to be a Ranger fan, there is no doubt about that.  A franchise record seven years without the playoffs in the easiest league in which to qualify, a league high salary over that time and a General Manager who is wildly unpopular with the fan base.  And to top things off, […]

Rangers Lose Back To Back

Through the first five pre-season games the Rangers looked competitive getting at least a point out of each of their games on the way to a 2-0-1-2 record, but even then there were worrying signs.  New York had been outshot in all bar the first game in Montreal (24-23) and were on the wrong side […]

20-1 Odds To Win The Cup

Trottier On 34th St.

by Gary Pino It’s amazing how things seem to rapidly change right before our eyes. Bryan Trottier hired by Glen Sather this week marks “The Real” new beginning for the Rangers!  If Neil Smith were still the GM, Trottier’s name would never even be mentioned in the same breath with “NYR’s Organization”!  But this is […]

Rangers Head Coach Bryan Trottier?

by Dave Gokhstein Bryan Trottier was the guy I suggested that Glen Sather should hire as the coach of the New York Rangers.  I just didn’t think Glen Sather would actually go ahead and take my advice.  Bryan Trottier is exactly what the Rangers need, and please, before you e-mail me with “He’s an Islander” […]

Low Gone

The Rangers today announced they would not bring coach Ron Low back for a third year.  Low, who’s contract expired with the Rangers failure to make the post-season for the fifth straight season, leaves the Rangers after two years and a 69-81-9-5 record. New York struggled during Low’s tenure on both defense and specialty teams.  […]
