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…

121 For more than two years? Doan’t do it

My take on Shane Doan, who reportedly visited the Rangers’ brass yesterday while in NYC anyway for NHL/NHLPA CBA war discussions: I’ve always liked Doan as a player and still do. I think he would fit very, very nicely into the Rangers; into their identity, into their leadership group. He…

275 Rangers sign 36-year-old Jeff Halpern

According to RDS’ Ren Lavoie, the Rangers have agreed to a one-year contract worth $700,000 with center Jeff Halpern, age 36. Not saying this is a bad signing, because Halpern is especially good on faceoffs, and is a penalty killer type. But … here is a team that was strong…
