I will have video, hopefully, or at least audio, from Marc Staal later on. He said he’s good to go for the season, and is wearing a tinted shield. Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin, both coming off shoulder surgery, were among a group of 22 players who practiced today. Neither… Read More →
THE INFAMOUS CAP ADVANTAGE RECAPTURE RULE By ilb2001 If you take a careful look at the new CBA you’ll notice that, in general, there are plenty of positive moves made to make the league more stable and afford its growth going forward. And even though the owners won, as they… Read More →
(Editor’s note: Special thanks to ilb2001 for a guest blog on a topic I couldn’t even begin to tackle. Frankly, the CBA gives me a migraine and I hope to never understand it. Meanwhile, if anybody wants to volunteer to do a guest blog between now and the opening of… Read More →
Alternate Reality Rangers: How The Last Lockout Changed The Scope of The NHL….Maybe Forever By Mike Aker Whether on television with various incarnations of Star Trek, in comic books with the X-Men, or even in Greek literature, we’ve all learned about an alternate reality, where there exists another realm that… Read More →
Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com, with some new, corrected info on the recapture penalty as it pertains to Brad Richards’ potential retirement if the Rangers don’t buy him out via amnesty next summer. The original numbers were incorrectly figured by capgeek.com, and since corrected, in a… Read More →
The amnesty buyout period began at 11 p.m. Wednesday, and runs through July 4. Players who are bought out under the amnesty exception allowed by the lockout-induced CBA, will be set free no later than the day before free agency, which this season is July 5 instead of the customary… Read More →

“2013 New York Rangers Report Card” by Mark Romeo Hard to believe it’s been only five months since we were collectively wishing to see less of Gary Bettman and more of Sam Rosen, but it has been. Tough to call this Rangers season much of anything other than a disappointment,... 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 →
