There’s No Business Like Show Business

Chris Drury was apparently given a proposition he couldn’t refuse: adding Patrick Kane to an already very skilled line-up.  The move came after the former Blackhawk used his NMC leverage to force Chicago GM Kyle Davidson into negotiating with one team – the New York Rangers. It’s been a bit of a circus in the last week, what […]

Motte Rejoins Rangers

With twelve days until the March 3rd NHL trade deadline, Rangers GM Chris Drury made his second move, bringing back fourth line winger Tyler Motte to the Blueshirts.  In exchange, the Rangers sent right wing Julien Gauthier, along with a conditional seventh round pick in this year’s draft, with the pick turning into the lower of the two sixth rounders […]

Rangers Call In The Copp

Rangers GM Chris Drury rounded out his first NHL Trade Deadline as General Manager with his biggest move this season, acquiring forward Andrew Copp from the Winnipeg Jets for some picks and prospect Morgan Barron.  The move means that Drury has added four forwards and a defenseman to the existing roster, without giving up a player on the team. The […]

Tyler Motte Acquired From Vancouver

In his third move of the day, Chris Drury added fourth line forward Tyler Motte from the Vancouver Canucks, in exchange for a 2023 4th round pick.  Motte marks the third forward that Drury has acquired this deadline, joining wing Frank Vatrano acquired three days ago, and depth forward Nicholas Merkley added from San Jose earlier in the day. With the addition of […]

Rangers Add Some Braun To Their Back End

Chris Drury continues to tread cautiously, adding defenseman Justin Braun from the Philadelphia Flyers for a 2023 third round pick.  The 34 year old Braun has played for both the Sharks and Flyers, and will be a UFA this Summer. A right hander, the 6-2 203lb Minnesotan can play both sides, so it remains to be seen what […]

Trade Options: Alexandar Georgiev

Goaltender Alexandar Georgiev was a topic of conversation for many over the Summer, with a handful of teams reportedly having interest in the Bulgarian born netminder.  As it turned out, the Rangers either chose to keep him, or could not find a deal that made sense. In fact, the Rangers opened their season with Georgiev in net […]

Let’s Not Make A Deal

April 12th, 2021 and the NHL Trade Deadline has come and gone without the New York Rangers making any deals.  In all fairness, the Rangers weren’t expected to make any changes, though the possibility remained for some of their pending UFAs and those with a year or less on their contracts being in play. Also […]

Captain Gone

For the second time in the last five NHL trade deadlines, the New York Rangers traded their captain to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The teams announced a blockbuster which sent defenseman Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller to the Lightning right before Monday’s deadline. In 2014, the Blueshirts sent then-captain Ryan Callahan to Tampa Bay as part of a package for Martin St. Louis. […]

Trading Places

With just under 72 hours remaining before the NHL Trade Deadline – Monday February 29th – 3:00pm Eastern, the New York Rangers find themselves in familiar territory.  With a nine point lead and a game in hand on the 9th ranked New Jersey Devils, it would take a monumental collapse for them to miss out […]

Oh Brother

The rapidly approaching NHL trade extravaganza brings up familiar questions, at least as they have applied to the Rangers last two trade deadlines. Are the Rangers buyers or sellers? Are they in it to win, or not? Are they willing to mortgage their future or not? Questions once again the Rangers face. Time will tell […]
