121 For more than two years? Doan’t do it

My take on Shane Doan, who reportedly visited the Rangers’ brass yesterday while in NYC anyway for NHL/NHLPA CBA war discussions: I’ve always liked Doan as a player and still do. I think he would fit very, very nicely into the Rangers; into their identity, into their leadership group. He…

186 Shea WWEber the Flyer?

Not sure what to make of this whole Shea WWEber signing by the Flyers. The Nashville Predators have made a lot of noise about matching the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet — they have a week to do so — but there are many reports, including one by Larry Brooks,…

2011-12: The Year In Review It’s hard to believe we’re in the middle of summer already and it’s been almost a full year since we were eagerly looking ahead to the 2011-12 season (my preview, which did predict an ECF berth and loss, can be found at http://rangers.lohudblogs.com/2011/08/22/guest-blogger-afrey94/).  I had…

Some Random Thoughts: ·        The league needs to implement a “Justin Schultz rule.” Perhaps something like making a draft choice the property of the drafting team for seven years. Anaheim got regally screwed by a loophole where a college player can easily become an unrestricted free agent. Here’s how simple…

344 Friday the 13th

That headline pretty much tells you that I’ve got nothin’ today, as we close in on the end of the second week of free agency, which has probably been the dullest free-agency period in Rangers history. Well, at least we’ve had some spirited discussion on Rick Nash and who the…

Why You Move Derek Stepan for Rick Nash I have been watching the National Hockey League for over 40 years and even a non-professional like me can identify who may be a special talent and who, despite his youth, and ability to make an occasional “wow” pass, is merely an ordinary player and…

275 Rangers sign 36-year-old Jeff Halpern

According to RDS’ Ren Lavoie, the Rangers have agreed to a one-year contract worth $700,000 with center Jeff Halpern, age 36. Not saying this is a bad signing, because Halpern is especially good on faceoffs, and is a penalty killer type. But … here is a team that was strong…
