OK, I admitted, I was wrong about this. I’ve been wrong plenty of times, and will be again, but I was as wrong on this as I’ve ever been on anything. That said, it wasn’t just me. Pretty much everybody in and around the team thought John Tortorella was going… Read More →
Put together this list without doing a lot of checking around. And since nobody ever knows what’s going on in Glen Sather’s world, I won’t even pretend to have a clue about who’s next. Lindy Ruff: The most obvious choice, has been available since being fired in February after 16… Read More →
We were going to do this anyway, but now it sure will be a lot more interesting. Live Chat Thursday at noon. Be there. Or else. I am posting three things I’ve just finished writing … a news story about the firing, a column, and a list of potential coaching… Read More →
Here’s my notebook from The Journal News and LoHud.com today (unedited version): By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – Henrik Lundqvist enters the final season of his contract in September. The best and most important player the Rangers have didn’t sound anxious, or convincing, when asked about whether he hoped to get… Read More →
Here’s my story from The Journal News and LoHud.com today: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH — Brad Richards is a bright guy and has been around long enough to know the score. And though Richards wouldn’t say so as the Rangers packed their belongings and headed into summer, the alternate captain… Read More →
Let’s start here because this was the big topic, obviously. Brad Richards knows he’s being bought out. He’s a smart guy and a pro. John Tortorella talked about Richards, but wouldn’t answer a question about whether his long-time friend would be back. The video is above, but this audio clip… Read More →
Please take time today to remember the people who sacrificed so much for us. While you’re all grilling your burgers and chicken, I’ll be at break-up day, posting audio, maybe some video, later on. And I’ll tweet the big stuff, if there is any, as it breaks (@RangersReport). The good… Read More →
Meant to post this last night. Sorry. My game story from The Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello BOSTON — There won’t be any miracle comeback for the Rangers, won’t be any of those good feelings they experienced last year after virtually running the table during the regular season,...

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture right here, well, just wow. Look at the five Rangers around Henrik Lundqvist and Gregory Campbell, look at who they are in a must-win Game 5 of a second-round playoff series, and how nobody can prevent the fourth-line Boston center… Read More →
Courtesy of the Boston Bruins: NEW YORK RANGERS FORWARD CARL HAGELIN On his team’s performance… This was definitely our best game. It was just tough that the push came too late. We should have been playing like this our first couple of games, which we didn’t. It’s tough to get… Read More →
Sorry for the jackwagon sniffling in my microphone during the Tortorella presser.

I’m going way out on a limb here and say this is indeed a Must Win for the Rangers. Seriously, though, I think this is a pretty big win for the Bruins, too, because if they lose this one then all that negative stuff from Philly in 2010, and from… Read More →
