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…

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…

269 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Flames

Game 3 of this 15-game trip. First of four in five nights out West to close the preseason. Then ya boys come home for a few days of practice before heading to Phoenix. Henrik Lundqvist is scheduled to play the entire game tonight at the Saddledome that changes sponsor names…

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…

Here’s Brian’s story, which published today in The Journal News and on lohud.com: GREENBURGH Chris Kreider skated up and down the…

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…

(Editor’s note: Be aware, or beware, that our very special guest blogger is known for his creative negativity, and the colorful vocabulary with which he describes his beloved Rangers … you know, “bush-league” and “amateur-hour” and “clowns” etc.) “It Doesn’t Matter What Path” By Paulo Molina, aka “Miami Pimp” It…

“2013 New York Rangers Report Card” by Mark Romeo Hard to believe it’s been only five months since we were collectively wishing to see less of Gary Bettman and more of Sam Rosen, but it has been.  Tough to call this Rangers season much of anything other than a disappointment,…
