41 Rangers preview Part II: Position by position

Forwards The look all changed when Brad Richards signed for $60 million over nine, years. Throw a legit No. 1 center onto any roster and it trickles down mightily. Now the Rangers have an elite playmaking center to play with Marian Gaborik, who had a terrible second season (22 goals,…

64 Rangers preview Part I: Keys to the season

Keys to the Rangers season 1) Marian Gaborik. He has one of the top playmaking centers in the NHL now, with Brad Richards. The Rangers must get around 40 goals, or more, from Gaborik, who would also then make a previously pathetic power play go if he’s back on his…

19 Rangers-Frolunda in review

(Editor’s note: Anybody interested in doing reviews of the Sunday or Monday games? If so, e-mail me at rcarpini@lohud.com) Another round of cuts coming today for John Tortorella. As I’ve said all along, there really aren’t a lot of spots available for new guys. The Rangers still need to keep…

40 John Tortorella media conference

John Tortorella: On the post-practice event in which members of the FDNY and NYPD hockey teams were interspersed with Rangers players for a scrimmage game and a shootout. Tortorella, by the way, was the happiest guy on the ice when some of the firemen and cops scored on Henrik Lundqvist.…

209 John Tortorella’s press conference

Better late than never. This is yesterday’s presser. I won’t be around the team today as it skates in the morning and then flies — that’s right, flies — to Albany for the preseason opener. I’ll be back this evening for a Go Time thread. Tortorella noted that there’s a…

138 Rangers camp update

Before I drive headlong into rush-hour traffic … The Rangers will announce their roster for tomorrow’s game in Albany later on. I’ll put it up as soon as I get it. Chad Kolarik tweaked a knee today and is going to be checked out. Michael Sauer did his fitness (torture…

34 First day of scrimmages and pucks

The Rangers play hockey for the first time this training camp. We’re going to have to count on our Twitter widget ——> for live updates, etc. In the meantime, here are some leftover interviews from the weekend: Wojtek Wolski: Talked about getting past the old “garbage” and starting over. “I…

32 Tortorella from training camp (updated)

UPDATE: Here is my story on Brandon Prust from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. Sorry this is so late … had some major car snafu Friday. Hope to be able to get to camp for most of the session, if not all, Saturday. We’ll see. No promises. Here is…

94 Some early stuff from camp (updated)

First the news. Marian Gaborik is not on the ice. He attended the funeral service for his friend Pavol Demitra yesterday. Wade Redden is not here; he was assigned to attend Connecticut’s training camp right from the start. And Michael Sauer did not skate today with a tweaked knee. UPDATE:…

78 Captain Callahan; alternate Staal … then what?

So word got out last night that the Rangers will name their captains today. Um, I’d bet the old ranch that Ryan Callahan will be named captain. There’s just no way to justify anybody else, right? And Marc Staal was named alternate last year and did absolutely nothing to deserve…

251 Rangers re-sign Callahan; avoid arbitration (updated)

140 Don’t Mess with the Captain

I was reading some speculation yesterday that, if Captain Callahan gets to arbitration and ends up with a one-year award, he may not get the captaincy. And, well, that just doesn’t make any sense to me. The guy is the captain of the Rangers. It’s his team. The team takes…

196 No word on Captain Callahan

I could be wrong, but Ryan Callahan’s contract will probably get done closer to Thursday (the arbitration date) so don’t hold your breath this weekend. ———————- We touched on it yesterday, but in case you haven’t seen it, the new Winnipeg Jets unveiled their new logos. I think they’re pretty…

456 Ryan Callahan, you are on the clock

Here is the story by USA Today’s Kevin Allen and Mike Brehm about Brandon Dubinsky’s signing yesterday. In it, they quote Ryan Callahan’s agent, Steve Bartlett, on where the negotiations stand. I personally think Capt. Callahan will be signed before he gets to arbitration next Thursday, and that he will…

405 You wanna talk hockey?

Some interesting discussion yesterday. The Devils hired another DeBoering coach. Chris Osgood hung ‘em up. Steven Stamkos re-upped for five years in Tampa Bay (what a surprise, no offer sheets). Here we talked about Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan, too, and their arbitration dates and contract discussions. We talked a…

MORNING UPDATE: Larry Brooks is reporting that RFA Michael Sauer signed a two-year, $1.25 million contract. AFTERNOON UPDATE: Add Artem Anisimov, who signed on the dotted line today, too (in case you didn’t see it right over there ——>). According to Jesse Spector’s blog: “Anisimov’s deal is worth $3.75 million…

419 Rangers lead the league … in arbitrations

Don’t read anything into it. Repeat: Do not read anything into this. It’s part of the process. They will all be re-signed. The good thing is that these filings for arbitration A) get rid of the possibility of an offer sheet being tendered and B) open a second window for…
