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…

Click here to read my story on Carl Hagelin, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to talk much about the game, because it wasn’t much of a game. But what’s important, and Alain Vigneault talked about it afterward (see the video, listen to the audio) is the dilemma facing…

99 Rangers at Devils … It’s Go Time!

Preseason Game 6. Rangers at Devils. This is it for ya boys. The final preseason game, and the final look for a bunch of players looking to earn spots before the Rangers make their cut down to 22 or 23 players Sunday or Monday and submit their cap-compliant roster…

158 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Click here to read my story on the decisions Alain Vigneault must make regarding his captains and his roster, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Alain Vigneault claimed to not have known which players wore captains’ letters Friday night, because, you know, he wasn’t behind the bench. He was upstairs with GM…

Game review
175 Rangers-Flyers in review (again)

Thoughts: 1) Happy October. Gotta tell you, that’s enough preseason for me. If they stopped right now, I’d be happy. The last two games, at least, will pretty much be the Rangers’ opening-night roster with a few players battling for the last two or three jobs. And they’ll be playing…

118 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Is it possible that this team will be faster overall than last year? Yessiree. Speed kills, and when  you replace Brian Boyle with (take your pick), replace Brad Richards with J.T. Miller, have a full season of Martin St. Louis’ wheels plus Chris Kreider from the start, maybe…

5 Roster competition in camp, but for not many spots

Here’s my story from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello NEW YORK – You do the math and you realize that, as much as coach Alain Vigneault and the Rangers organization want some young players to make the roster, there won’t be a lot of room. So there…

150 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Unrelated to this game, but there was a lot of chatter about helmets and fights and head injuries this week, and Gary Bettman talked about “player safety” again, and it always makes me wonder. Why in Holy Hell does the league allow players to wear their chinstraps down…

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…
