121 Happy Independence Day!

Hope you enjoy your Fourth of July. If you’re going to drink don’t even dream about driving. Do NOT. As for the Rangers, I know a lot has been made of their inactivity so far, but first of all I think Michael Grabner was a good get — a speedster,…

232 Rangers add Beukeboom to staff, sign four free agents

Because we need a new post after 500 plus comments, here are the official announcements from the Rangers so far. ICYMI, Eric Staal and Viktor Stalberg both defected via free agency, to Minnesota and Carolina, respectively. RANGERS NAME JEFF BEUKEBOOM ASSISTANT COACH NEW YORK, July 1, 2016 – New York…

531 NHL Free Agency Day … It’s Go Time!

Big, big day for the Rangers, and GM Jeff Gorton, who took over from Glen Sather one year ago today. Sort of big, I think. I don’t imagine they’re going to be in the market for any significant (read: expensive) free agents given their cap situation. That said, perhaps part…

398 NHL entry draft … It’s Go Time!

Well, it isn’t Go Time for the Rangers unless they trade their way into the first round (or second for that matter). But as I said earlier, I imagine Jeff Gort0n is going to be very active on the draft floor in Buffalo, where only a few feet of snow…

275 NHL Awards Show … It’s Go Time!

ICYMI: Earlier this afternoon Las Vegas was officially granted an expansion franchise to begin play in 2017-18. Also apologies for the technical difficulties. We’re moving to a new server, hoping to alleviate some of the, ahem, problems that have popped up … Hence the multiple fonts, which I probably could…

247 Rangers player evaluations — Ryan McDonagh

First things first. Happy Anniversary. I probably don’t need to say more. Second thing: When it comes to Ryan McDonagh, I really don’t want to hear this good captain/bad captain discussion. The team struggled this season. McDonagh, like most of his teammates, and his alternate captains, struggled this season. That…

Game review
94 Stanley Cup Final in review

Thoughts: 1) So the hockey season finally ends. Again, thanks to all of you for hanging in there start to finish, and hopefully you’ll stick around all summer. Going to be an interesting one, and I think the action starts next week, heading into, and at the draft. 2) The…

172 Stanley Cup Final Game 6 … It’s Go Time!

Stanley Cup Final Game 6. Penguins at Sharks. (Penguins lead 3-2.) Can the San Jose Sharks (a.k.a. Martin Jones) extend the hockey season a few more days? Speaking of which, Game 7 wouldn’t be until Wednesday. This series started May 30. Could it be stretched out any more?…

200 Rangers player evaluations — Derick Brassard

I have not been looking forward to writing this one at all for a few reasons. I’ve beaten up Derick Brassard a lot this past season. I like Brassard as a person — how could you not? — and think he’s a very good player, especially when he plays with…
