198 Rangers not major players in free agency

… but, Rick Nash today submits his list of 10 teams to which he would accept a trade as his no-move clause becomes a partial NMC. Not that I believe at all that he’ll be traded, but I guess it’s a possibility. Stay here all day for the action, which…

207 Rangers’ draft in review

Thoughts: 1) Right now, at this very moment, I think the Rangers are not as good as they were when they last played a hockey game. That’s just me. But when they were eliminated, I thought that they had only one legit first-line player, and he proved once again incapable…

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) That’s a pretty enormous win, fairly gutsy, etc. And I certainly don’t want to be Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer. But, Alain Vigneault might want to go against his “never critique a win” creed before Game…
