88 Draft over, Sather speaks

Rangers president/GM Glen Sather addressed the media in attendance in Minnesota following the draft today and discussed a number of issues, though some of those vaguely, including the futures of Chris Drury and possibly Matt Gilroy, and the trade of Evgeny Grachev for a third-round pick. Gordie Clark also commented…

467 Trade winds blowing?

Or not? The Monday trade deadline is coming fast, and a lot of teams have jumped out ahead of the parade and made big deals. I still suspect there will be a massive number of trades Monday. And we will be here, at Blog HQ with youse, from breakfast, through…

98 Pre-game stuff

Hi kids. I didn’t make it down to MSG tonight for a variety of reasons, so I’ll be in the chair watching our good friends at Versus and, despite that, trying to watch the game with youse tonight. Maybe listening to the great Kenny Albert and Dave Maloney. Anyway, I…

137 Dubinsky in? Grachev sent down

I guess this means Brandon Dubinsky has the green light tonight. Evgeny Grachev was just assigned to Connecticut. That leaves only 11 other healthy forwards, plus Dubinsky. Here’s the announcement from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, February 1, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General…

29 Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury recalled

No real surprises there. Still awaiting the official announcement from the Rangers. But they will need bodies from among the five they sent to Connecticut before the break, so it’s not shocking that it’s these three. Don’t know yet if Del Zotto is in the lineup Tuesday if Dan Girardi…

11 Post-game quotes

First the news: Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury, Dupont and Kolarik are all going to Connecticut to play two AHL games this weekend. Most of them will be back for the first game after the break, as only Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are expected to return from injuries. Back with…

27 Tortorella pre-game

First the news. Girardi still out. Same lineup as last night, only with Lundqvist in goal. Just saw one of the good guys in the game, Radek Dvorak.  Back with Tortorella quotes soon. —————- John Tortorella: On Girardi (who showed no improvement and is out tonight). “He’ll be ready to…

140 Rangers-Caps in review

Six days ago, we were sitting in the press conference room and John Tortorella was talking about losing Brandon Dubinsky, on top of losing all these other players including Ryan Callahan, and during the game that night the Rangers would also lose Ruslan Fedotenko. And that was the first game…

207 Rangers-Thrashers in review

That’s a win that feels like two. Or three. Given what they had going into the game, and what they lost (Girardi and Prust) during the game, and again being behind after two periods, and tying it up in the third, and playing a wild overtime and then having the…

10 Del Zotto and Grachev are up, Weise is down

Here’s the official announcement from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, January 22, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Michael Del Zotto and forward Evgeny Grachev have been recalled from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League…

108 Grachev demoted to Reddenville

Because, I guess, he was taking up too much ice time from the productive Erik Christensen and Todd White. Seriously, it’s probably best that he goes down and plays a lot of pro minutes instead of rotting on a vine with Boogaard. Here’s the announcement: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE…

521 It’s Go Time!

To repeat today’s reports from other sites: Mike Sauer goes back into the lineup tonight, as does Todd White. Evgeny Grachev gets another look, too. That means Derek Boogaard and Matt Gilroy are prucha’d. Coach John Tortorella told reporters that the prucha-ing of Gilroy has nothing to do with Gilroy’s…

23 John Tortorella pre-game

(Before I transcribe, tonight was the fourth or fifth time that I’ve been around this season where Tortorella began his session with a good, old, joking-around with the assembled media, then he patiently answered every question in detail. I’m telling you, this is how he was the last time he…

24 Some shuffling at MSG:

Will have John Tortorella’s presser shortly. First, he said that Grachev will play, starting on right wing on a fourth line with Christensen on the left and White in the middle. (Markus Naslund, unofficially, is the only Ranger ever to wear No. 91, which Grachev will wear in his NHL…

126 Rangers recall Grachev

Guess I should have led with the update, so here goes. According to all the reporters who, you know, go to practice, Artem Anisimov’s right ankle MRI came up negative, so he is expected to play tomorrow, as is Michal Rozsival (hyperextended knee), though Rozsival said he wants to see…
