TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports the deal is done; Wojtek Wolski to Florida for minor-league defenceman  Mike Vernace and a 3rd round pick in 2013. I left the Canadian spelling of defenceman in there for your enjoyment. The Rangers did not put Wolski on waivers today, which was a hint that…

143 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’m not going to attempt to talk some of you off the ledge. You’re nuts if you are in a panic over this little slide here. And if I knew a bookie, I’d put down a bet that the Rangers, because of who they are this year, will respond in…

402 A day closer to D-day

Some thoughts that I expressed in the comments, and some I didn’t, as we argued — again — the pros and mostly the cons of Rick Nash (somebody cleverly dubbed it Nash Wednesday). 1) Jeff “10-foot-pole” Carter … the Rangers would be better off doing nothing than adding him at…

527 Guest blogger Eric Nova: Rangers-Penguins in review

(Ed. note: Eric Nova writes his own Rangers blog which you can see at http://www.ericnyr.blogspot.com) Thoughts: Teams with lots of highly skilled and speedy players have proven to be very dangerous to the Rangers. NYR’s grinding and fore-checking game is a great thing when run right. There were glimpses of…

466 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) On the Michael Del Zotto non-goal … I understand that the replay everybody saw on TV and in MSG was with the unofficial scoreboard clock. The NHL situation room in Toronto and/or the replay judge (John Damante in this case) in the arena, has the actual official clock burned…
