It’s official. The Rangers have finally signed their 2009 first-round pick Chris Kredier, who won his second NCAA championship in three years with Boston College on Saturday.

92 Post-practice interviews

The news: Both Ryan Callahan (personal issues) and Marian Gaborik (flu) returned to practice today after missing Monday’s workout. So the Rangers were able to focus on the power play and special teams in general. Nothing new on Chris Kreider. I still think he’s on the verge of signing. I…

77 Same drill today; Live Chat tomorrow

The good news: I’m definitely going to Kanata, Ontario, you know, the outpost where the Senators play at another arena that changes names every five minutes. Well, that’s good news for The Journal News, for LoHud.com, and for this here blog. Not sure it’s such a great hotspot for me.…

First the news … Ryan Callahan (personal reasons) and Marian Gaborik (flu) did not practice. Not a big deal. And Chris Kreider, as of this moment, hasn’t been signed … not that we know, anyway. Might happen today. Might not. Remember, he’s past the point of getting any money for…

Got a lot of stuff coming up this week to kick off the playoffs. First, I’m going over to the practice today, and hope to post some audio later on. And maybe I’ll do some tweeting (yes, me, tweeting) from the rink. And hopefully we’ll have some news on Chris…

Game 82. Kinda simple, kinda complicated. If the Rangers win, they take the Presidents’ Trophy and face Washington in the first round, probably starting Thursday at MSG. If not, they can still win the Presidents’ Trophy by finishing tied with Vancouver, which plays Edmonton tonight at 10. And they can…

408 NHL fines Tortorella $20,000

This, to me, is a complete joke. The NHL allows players to maim one another, allows teams to purposely start brawls, allows a player last night to effect a race for a division title by stopping a puck with his stick from the bench, but a coach can’t speak his…
