671 Drury and Dubinsky on Avery (updated)

(AFTERNOON UPDATE: Just want to point out that at practice today, pretty much every Rangers scout and player personnel person was present and accounted for. So, organizationally at least, the Rangers are braced to make moves as they come available. I still think they’re pretty hamstrung, and that nobody is…

116 Buyers or sellers?

Hi all. Sam Borden here. Carp will be along with a practice report shortly, but while you’re waiting I wanted to mention that we’re debating whether the Rangers should buy or sell at the trade deadline over on FACEOFF. I think the Rangers have to be buyers here, mostly because…

Ryan Callahan, Nikolai Zherdev, Petr Prucha, Scott Gomez, Chris Drury and Markus Naslund all scored tonight as the Rangers new aggresive style of play finally broke the dam.

310 Avalanche at Rangers

Tonight the Rangers host Colorado, and the team had a practice this morning in Greenburgh. John Tortorella worked with some new lines, although in typical Torts fashion he would not confirm that this is the lineup for tonight’s game. He reiterated that he liked Chris Drury and Brandon Dubinsky together,…

140 Sprint, shoot, pushups

Practice was a little unusual today. The group was split roughly in half and the players with the most playing time in the John Tortorella era worked out off ice while the others had a brief and intense workout. There were pyramids and pushups, and shooting drill after shooting drill.…

When John Tortorella got to Madison Square Garden tonight, Chris Drury was already here. The center craned his neck last night on the bench to look at his new coach as if to say, “Put me out there.” “That’s Chris Drury,” Tortorella said. “That’s how much he cares.” Tortorella can…

297 0-0-1 (since the clean slate)

So do you think they’ll fire John Tortorella now, or wait until the end of the season? Obviously I’m kidding, and you could definitely see a difference in the game last night. But you could also see more of the same, and without looking very hard. Just the score tells…

352 This is NOT a test (updated)

Well, it might be a pop quiz. But it sure isn’t a final exam. Rest assured, though, John Tortorella’s new system will be in full bloom tonight. Also rest assured that any line combos or personnel decisions the new sheriff employs tonight will not be final or conclusive. The first…
