Mistaken Identity

Submitted by LETSGORANGERS July 17th, 2006 Several years ago, I went to see the Rangers play in Tampa, because I knew they would stay in the hotel right across from the arena. So I went with my girlfriend at the time and we took her niece, we all got there very early, so we could catch the […]


by Timmy Corbett Despite having injured his ankle and being on the shelf for a bare minimum of six weeks, rumors will not go away about Curtis Joseph coming to New York. Joseph is a talented goalie, but it appears his best days may be behind him (particularly after the injury, which he may never […]

Behind The Line

by Timmy Corbett The Rangers announced today they signed Greg de Vries. Greg is a good skater with good passing and shooting ability. He is good on the penalty kill and likewise on 5-on-5 action. He can score goals and gets good numbers on assists. Not once did I say great, not once will anyone […]

Rangers Get Their Man

The rumor surfaced last week, and today the Rangers confirmed it by announcing that they have signed unrestricted free agent defenseman, Greg de Vries.  The former Avalanche defenseman was reported to have signed a four year $13 million deal, and will bolster a defensive corps that lost several players to free agency this summer. The […]

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 […]

Post Turkey Thoughts

by Charles Solomon Bure and Lindros cannot score, Kasparaitis has been a bust, Holik has missed more games this season than he missed in the previous five seasons combined, and Trottier seems like the wrong man for the job .   Sure, there have been plusses like Messier’s scoring touch, Barnaby’s solid play, the Leetch and Poti pair, […]

Kick The Tires And Light The Fires

by Charles Solomon The leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and hockey is beginning to consume our brains. We are now merely days away from the start of the season. Our beloved Blueshirts are set to open the season this Wednesday in Raleigh, against last year’s Eastern Conference champions. As anticipation builds, many people […]

More Questions

Preseason is always a reason to be optimistic in Blueshirt land, but after a summer of positive action the Rangers faithful have kerbed their optimism in the light of some worrying trends. Just how bad is the Rangers penalty kill?  Over the final games of the preseason the Blueshirts gave up 13 power play goals […]

Counting Chickens

Over the off-season I saw plenty of bold predictions for the Rangers this year…playoffs, first in the east and even a few Stanley Cup champions.  But this week many fans and commentators came quickly back to earth with the announcement that Bure would have surgery on his twice injured right knee. The injury and the […]

Tougher Rangers Have Big Questions

by Charles Solomon Glen Sather had a busy off-season this summer.  By acquiring unrestricted free agents Bobby Holik and Darius Kasparaitis he added toughness that the Rangers sorely lacked last season.  Slats also subtracted cancerous mediocrity in the forms of Bryan Berard, Michal Grosek, and Andreas Johansson.  The antics of Theo Fleury are also no longer a concern […]
