Depth Moves Only On Deadline Day

While there was nothing that could be added to the Rangers on the NHL trade deadline day, General Manager Chris Drury did make a couple of depth moves to provide a little extra depth and bolster the Hartford Wolf Pack’s quest to return to he playoffs for the first time since the 2014-15 season. Over the past […]

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 […]

Austin Rueschhoff Sent To Preds

Ahead of the Patrick Kane trade announcement, the Rangers have made a minor deal, sending towering 6-7 right wing Austin Rueschhoff to the Nashville Predators in exchange for future considerations.  The 25 year old is yet to play in the NHL, and is set to be a Group VI UFA this Summer. Signed in the spring of 2020 out […]

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 […]

Stealing My Thunder

by Jess Rubenstein You know some people just have to hog all the attention, they have to steal the spotlight from another and so what if they hog all the glory .   Damn that Glen Sather how dare he try to ruin my debut here at Outside the Garden, who the heck does he think he is?  Oh […]

Drury Addresses Needs Early

Chris Drury pulled the trigger on a trade, acquiring right winger Vladimir Tarasenko and defenseman Niko Mikkola from the St Louis Blues, in exchange for winger Sammy Blais, minor league prospect defenseman Hunter Skinner and two picks. For the best part of two years, Gallant has struggled to solve the top six, and while the new-found confidence of the Kid Line is giving […]

Camp Roster Released

Players will report to Trainining Camp tomorrow, with 66 players invited to this year’s edition.  Head Coach Gerard Gallant and his team will have their hands full, with such a big roster, though that is likely to get trimmed quickly as players are sent down to the Wolf Pack, or back to their minor league/european […]

Lundkvist Traded To Dallas For First

Disgruntled Swedish defenseman Nils Lundkivst has gotten his request fulfilled, with news this evening that the Rangers have traded him to the Dallas Stars in exchange for a first round pick.  The pick is top ten protected, meaning that if the Stars finish with a top ten pick at the 2023 NHL entry draft, then […]

Nils Sum Game

After a week of speculation, Nils Lundkvist confirmed through his agent Claude Lemieux, that he will not report to camp, and will instead remain in Sweden hoping to force a trade.  There have been reports this week, that the Swede asked for a trade after being demoted to Hartford mid-way through last season, and without a foreseeable path to a […]

Rangers Trade Nemeth

A day after it became clear the Rangers would not be buying out the two remaining seasons of Patrik Nemeth‘s contract, GM Chris Drury moved the remaining two years of Patrik Nemeth‘s contract to the Arizona Coyotes, along with two draft picks in exchange for 22 year old AHLer Ty Emberson. The move had been anticipated, and the cost proved […]
