167 Guest blogger: Manny … Rangers-Devils in review

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…

186 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Devils

Game 1 of the preseason, and of 15 in a row on the road. Yee-hah! Though I will add that the last time the Rangers opened with a schedule like this, they won the East, almost won the Presidents’ Trophy and reached the Eastern final. So, you know. Brad Richards…

130 Training camp: Day 4

Cleaning up a few items. First, here’s my story on Scott Arniel and Derick Brassard from The Journal News and lohud.com today. More importantly, the other day Brad Richards was talking about his relationship with John Tortorella. He mumbled as he was saying, or intending to say, he said he…

The Good, the Bad, and the Whipping Boys People like a good villain … someone that they just love to hate.  Some are more obvious than others.  There are movie characters, like Darth Vader, Hannibal Lecter, and Tony Montana.   They are so evil that you want to see them pay…

131 Free agency day: Will the Rangers really be silent?

The free-agent signing period opens at noon. I know, the Rangers don’t have much cap space at all because they decided to keep Brad Richards rather than buy him out. They still have a whole bunch of RFAs to re-sign, especially Ryan McDonagh, Derek Stepan, Carl Hagelin and probably Mats…

178 The Richards saga: My take

Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com, with some new, corrected info on the recapture penalty as it pertains to Brad Richards’ potential retirement if the Rangers don’t buy him out via amnesty next summer.
