230 It’s Go Time! … Rangers vs. Kings in Las Vegas

Game 6 of this 15-game trip, and the preseason finale in Las Vegas. The game’s indoors, so there won’t be crickets on the ice tripping up players, as Tie Domi claimed he was felled on a breakaway the first time they played out there. Ya boys have scored eight goals…

337 Rangers-Canucks in review

Click here for my story on Derek Stepan signing a new two-year contract, from The Journal News and lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Huge day for the Rangers Thursday. Not only did they re-sign Derek Stepan — Glen Sather, tough negotiator, wins again — but just as critical is that Ryan Callahan…

Game 4 of this 15-game trip. The preseason ends tomorrow in Las Vegas against the Kings. As you know, tonight the “traded” coaches face off against one another. And unless you’ve been under Mount Vancouver, you’ve heard by now that Derek Stepan today signed a two-year, $6.15 million contract. He…

105 Live Chat today at noon … first of the season

We can discuss the new coach, the new system, the old GM, the old players, the new players, Derek Stepan, Brad Richards, yesterday’s demotions, the demotions yet to come, the opening-night lineup, the 15-game road trip (six preseason, nine regular-season), tonight’s Alain Vigneault-John Tortorella faceoff in Vancouver, and of course…

150 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Unrelated to this game, but there was a lot of chatter about helmets and fights and head injuries this week, and Gary Bettman talked about “player safety” again, and it always makes me wonder. Why in Holy Hell does the league allow players to wear their chinstraps down…

355 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Oilers

… or as Ed Norton would say, Erlers. Game 4 of this 15-game trip, and second of four in five nights to end the preseason. Ya boys are 1-2, and have yet to have close to their full lineup in a game, which would be impossible to do with Derek…

339 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) Boy, Slats with that Borsalino was awfully tough on Derek Stepan in the taped interview on MSG. “He’s going to get paid, just not today.” Suggested he was “a fool” for listening to his agent. Classic old-school stuff. And I get it, that it’s playing the CBA and…

224 Big week for a number of youngsters, starting tonight

The Rangers get back to work tonight in Calgary, to start a preseason-closing week in which they play four games in five nights. It’s a crucial week for some of the young players trying to make Alain Vigneault’s team, especially if Derek Stepan remains unsigned on opening night (doubtful). Expected…

288 Guest blogger: Michael Aker … Rangers-Flyers in review

When the lineup for the Devils game was announced this weekend, it was a very well thought out decision by Alain Vigneault and his staff to ensure that the second of the back-to-backs would feature tough guys like Haley, Dorsett, McIlrath, and Kantor to nullify any of the shenanigans the…

Before everyone starts demanding trades, firing coaches and writing off the season as a total loss let’s remember that pre-season games are hardly must-win scenarios (a lesson Rex Ryan learned the hard way). That said, with 46 players competing for half that many roster spots, there is certainly an aspect…
