Not Last Year’s New York Rangers

from Andrew Gross of The Record, To repeat as conference champs, bigger-than-expected contributions have to come from unexpected places. Look, given a choice between a roster with Brian Boyle (Lightning), Stralman, Pouliot and Brad Richards (Blackhawks) or Matthew Lombardi, Lee Stempniak, Tanner Glass and Dan Boyle, I’ll take the first grouping. But Dan Boyle, at 38...

Who would the Rangers keep in a theoretical NHL expansion draft?

Last year, I had some fun with a theoretical expansion draft. I did that more as an August musings post than anything else. This time around, there are big rumors about expansion, and it seemed like a good idea to do another theoretical expansion draft. After all, the roster has changed and the team’s situation has […] The post Who would the Rangers keep in a theoretical NHL...

Rangers save their best for last by signing Hayes

By most reasonable counts, the Rangers front office had a pretty crappy summer in free agency. They lost defensive stalwart and ‘possession god’ Anton Stralman to the Tampa Bay Lightning and replaced him with 38 year old Dan Boyle, who can’t come anywhere close to replacing Stralman’s even strength minutes. Even though the Rangers were continue reading...

Entirely too many words on Ryan Malone and the Rangers

Multiple rumors suggest that the Rangers have engaged in talks with Ryan Malone regarding a training camp invite. The rumors make sense for a few different reasons. For starters, Ryan Malone once played for the Tampa Bay Lightning, which seems to mean something to Glen Sather (note: Glen does know that Malone was not part of the 2004 Cup winners, right?). But of more significance...
