89 Season preview: Position by position

FORWARDS: Three years ago, the Rangers had zero legit first-line forwards. Two years ago they had one (Marian Gaborik). Last year they had two (Gaborik and Brad Richards). This year they have three, with the addition of power forward Rick Nash. The lockout gave Gaborik time to heal from shoulder…

56 Season preview: Five questions

Grittier, or prettier? The Rangers lost some of their grinding personality in Brandon Prust, Brandon Dubinsky and Ruslan Fedotenko, and a big part of their game was battling for every inch of ice. Some of that has been replaced, and Rick Nash will use his big body, too. But this…

132 Redden (and Gomez) could resurrect careers with new buyout rule

One of many reminders: Live Chat Wednesday at noon. Be there. ******************************************* Here’s my notebook from camp today: Two of Glen Sather’s biggest mistakes could be freed from their contracts by Saturday and thus, conceivably, continue their NHL careers. Defenseman Wade Redden, whom Sather signed to a six-year, $39 million…

89 Post-practice interviews

First some quick stuff: Brad Richards missed a third day in a row with the flu. The Rangers will not work out on the ice tomorrow, instead doing classroom/video meetings, so MSG Network’s training camp special has been pushed back to Thursday. Listen to Torts when he is asked if…

112 Rangers go back to work, get set for short season

Here’s my story from The Journal News and Lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers hit the ice Monday – well, 15 of them did – and though they’d skated in groups throughout periods of the NHL owners’ lockout, this was different. “It was great,” new Rangers power winger…

62 Rangers’ first unofficial skate of the post-lockout

Sorry again for the tech problems with the audio. I’m supposed to be getting a new, improved (how could it be worse than this p.o.c. Mac?) laptop for the season so this won’t continually happen. To review, 15 players skated today, including: Ryan Callahan, Brad Richards, Marc Staal, Ryan McDonagh,…

17 Rangers, Flyers and friends played hockey for a cause

I wasn’t on hand, but here is a story from our Gannett paper the Courier-Post with some video. There is also a photo gallery. They were chanting “Fire Bettman” among other things as the guys filled the arena with more than 10,000 fans, all proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy victims.…

How does an Englishman end up a Ranger fan? By UKRanger It all started around Christmas 1983 for me (around the time of the Maloneys, Greschner, Larouche, and Sandstrom and a first-round exit to the Flyers) not as a Ranger fan, but that was when my interest in American sports…

1952. Not exactly a banner year for the New York Rangers. Through the calendar year, the Blueshirts had more ties than wins. (You do remember ties, don’t you?) Sure, there were a couple of promising young players on the roster. Gump Worsley came up and would go on to win…
