298 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Thoughts: 1) It is beyond stupid to think this team was going to stink  it up all season. I don’t think they are where they need to be, and they still need to get more from the guys who play on the second line, or who are supposed to play…

139 Rangers-Bruins in review; Live Chat today at noon

Plenty to talk about, including the big win over Boston last night and tonight’s game against the 0-3 and very desperate Orange Crud. Be there. Or else. ******************************************** Here’s the MSG link to John Tortorella’s post-game…

447 More review of the 0-2 start

I certainly don’t want to make a big deal about the feisty edge the Rangers might have lost over the off-season. As I said earlier, a few times, I think the Rangers are going to be a little different this year. More speed. More high-end skill. And as much as…

410 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I still think the staged fights are dumb and mostly useless. But to a degree I agree with John Tortorella, that when a guy is in that kind of battle, right in front of your bench, teammates need to take that and run with it, at least a…

537 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . It’s Go Time!

Rangers vs. Penguins. Game 2. The 0-1 Rangers go with the same lineup, other than Arron Asham, coming off his suspension from last season’s playoffs, making his Rangers debut in place of Brandon Segal, who was returned to the Connecticut Whale (AHL) as planned. Are you ready for some Sidney…

202 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not judging anything or anybody after one game. But I agree with Captain Callahan, who said, “we’ve gotta increase out battle level.” It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t where it was last year (or the year before), and with some of the guys they lost — who…

738 It’s Go Time!

Game 1 Have you waited long enough for this game? Bunch of guys making their Rangers’ debuts: Rick Nash, Taylor Pyatt, Jeff Halpern and Brandon Segal. Plus Chris Kreider makes his regular-season NHL debut. Check out the new thingy on the left … it’s our Three Rangers Stars poll. You…

89 Season preview: Position by position

FORWARDS: Three years ago, the Rangers had zero legit first-line forwards. Two years ago they had one (Marian Gaborik). Last year they had two (Gaborik and Brad Richards). This year they have three, with the addition of power forward Rick Nash. The lockout gave Gaborik time to heal from shoulder…

56 Season preview: Five questions

Grittier, or prettier? The Rangers lost some of their grinding personality in Brandon Prust, Brandon Dubinsky and Ruslan Fedotenko, and a big part of their game was battling for every inch of ice. Some of that has been replaced, and Rick Nash will use his big body, too. But this…

62 Rangers’ first unofficial skate of the post-lockout

Sorry again for the tech problems with the audio. I’m supposed to be getting a new, improved (how could it be worse than this p.o.c. Mac?) laptop for the season so this won’t continually happen. To review, 15 players skated today, including: Ryan Callahan, Brad Richards, Marc Staal, Ryan McDonagh,…

How does an Englishman end up a Ranger fan? By UKRanger It all started around Christmas 1983 for me (around the time of the Maloneys, Greschner, Larouche, and Sandstrom and a first-round exit to the Flyers) not as a Ranger fan, but that was when my interest in American sports…

44 Guest blogger: Steve from NY

Being a Ranger fan is what I live for during the NHL season. I watch every game, studying systems and commenting from the couch. As most Ranger fans, I feel a part of this team. I get upset when they lose, joyful when they win and grow my own beard…
