78 Captain Callahan; alternate Staal … then what?

So word got out last night that the Rangers will name their captains today. Um, I’d bet the old ranch that Ryan Callahan will be named captain. There’s just no way to justify anybody else, right? And Marc Staal was named alternate last year and did absolutely nothing to deserve…

140 Don’t Mess with the Captain

I was reading some speculation yesterday that, if Captain Callahan gets to arbitration and ends up with a one-year award, he may not get the captaincy. And, well, that just doesn’t make any sense to me. The guy is the captain of the Rangers. It’s his team. The team takes…

456 Ryan Callahan, you are on the clock

Here is the story by USA Today’s Kevin Allen and Mike Brehm about Brandon Dubinsky’s signing yesterday. In it, they quote Ryan Callahan’s agent, Steve Bartlett, on where the negotiations stand. I personally think Capt. Callahan will be signed before he gets to arbitration next Thursday, and that he will…

137 Dubinsky locked up for four years, $16.8M

God, I love that Twitter widget over there ——> On a day when there’s news, it really does its job. So Brandon Dubinsky and the Rangers avoided arbitration at the last second, and you know what? The deal is the right one for everybody. If it took a little longer…

198 Big Day for Brandon Dubinsky

So today, Brandon Dubinsky goes to arbitration … barring a last minute settlement on a new contract. The educated guess is he gets around $4M per for one or two years (the Rangers choice, from my understanding) from the arbitration award. And that he either goes through something like this…

405 You wanna talk hockey?

Some interesting discussion yesterday. The Devils hired another DeBoering coach. Chris Osgood hung ’em up. Steven Stamkos re-upped for five years in Tampa Bay (what a surprise, no offer sheets). Here we talked about Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan, too, and their arbitration dates and contract discussions. We talked a…

MORNING UPDATE: Larry Brooks is reporting that RFA Michael Sauer signed a two-year, $1.25 million contract. AFTERNOON UPDATE: Add Artem Anisimov, who signed on the dotted line today, too (in case you didn’t see it right over there ——>). According to Jesse Spector’s blog: “Anisimov’s deal is worth $3.75 million…

419 Rangers lead the league … in arbitrations

Don’t read anything into it. Repeat: Do not read anything into this. It’s part of the process. They will all be re-signed. The good thing is that these filings for arbitration A) get rid of the possibility of an offer sheet being tendered and B) open a second window for…

510 And now we return to the off-season …

It’s been pretty hectic around here the last couple of weeks, and I’m not complaining. Had a lot of stuff to talk about and a lot of fun talking about it. And now we go back to the off-season, at least for the moment. I still suspect your heroes might…

557 Brandon Dubin$ky isn’t going anywhere

You guys surprise me sometimes. Yesterday Larry Brooks wrote that Brandon Dubinsky is seeking $4.5M per for multi-years and that he won’t get it from Glen Sather, and that a comparable player just signed for four years at $4M per. And immediately some of you guys said “bye-bye” to Dubinsky,…

Brandon Dubinsky: “We look at it, it could very easily be 3-1, us, if we find a way to get one in overtime, hang onto the lead, at least 2-2. So, yeah, it’s a tough position, but we’ve got to remain focused and believe in what we’re capable of in…

389 Capitals 4, Rangers 3 (2OT): Game 4 in review

Here’s the bad news. Teams trailing 3-1 have won 23 of 240 series in history (9.6 percent). Here’s the good news: Twenty-one  of those have happened since 1987, including twice last year. And the Capitals did it to the Rangers in 2009, and had it done to them by Montreal…
