Laviolette’s First Call Out

After a disorganized and largely ineffective effort against the Islanders, Head Coach Peter Laviolette called out the Rangers lack of effort and failure to adhere to some simple basics. When asked about the game, he summed it up as “Not Good”, saying that the performance isn’t “what we want to be”. The coach was quick […]

New PP Configuration. Finally

With Vladimir Tarasenko and Niko Mikkola joining the Rangers for tonight’s game against the Seattle Kraken, coach Gerard Gallant has rolled out a reconfigured line-up….and even new power play units, but perhaps the most surprising move is that Vitali Kravtsov is back in to the line-up after sitting out the last four as a healthy scratch. As expected, Tarasenko slots in […]

Is This The Year?

Last season exceeded our expectations by some margin.  52 wins, career years for a number of Rangers – including 52 goals by Chris Kreider, along with the Vezina winning performance in net from Igor Shesterkin, were all components of a very enjoyable campaign last season.  Then a post season run that saw them ultimately exit in the […]

No Barclay, Blais or Panarin Tonight

The Rangers travel to Boston tonight to play their second preseason game in as many nights.  Not along for the ride are most of last night’s line-up, along with star winger Artemi Panarin and forward Sammy Blais and Barclay Goodrow. Not playing Panarin is probably more about giving others a chance, rather than any concern with the veteran Russian winger.  […]

3rd Day of Camp Wraps Up

Team C picked up their second scrimmage win, and are the only team of the three that has actually registred a win at this point.  The Kid Line, and in particular Kaapo Kakko and Alexis Lafreniere picked up two of the three goals, with the first goal of the contest coming from Dryden Hunt.  Team C wrapped up the game […]

No Kidding

Despite being largely dismissed over the Summer months, it appears that Gerard Gallant could indeed give the Kid Line a bit more time together to start Training Camp.  While far from an endorsement for what things might look like to start the year – anyone remember trying Tony DeAngelo on the left side a couple […]

Second Line Center: Trocheck

For much of 2022, there’s been questions over who would be lineup alongside Artemi Panarin and behind Mika Zibanejad in the second line center spot.  With last year’s choice Ryan Strome heading to free agency, and second option Andrew Copp preferring to head to his home state of Michigan, the focus turned to first the trade market and finally ended up with a […]
