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…

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…

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…

17 Rangers, Flyers and friends played hockey for a cause

I wasn’t on hand, but here is a story from our Gannett paper the Courier-Post with some video. There is also a photo gallery. They were chanting “Fire Bettman” among other things as the guys filled the arena with more than 10,000 fans, all proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy victims.…

413 Are these the 2012-13 New York Rangers?

The Rangers signing Anton Stralman yesterday, and all this cooky talk about Shane Doan wanting four years (I haven’t seen anything substantiating it, but you keep hearing it, and teams like Detroit are dropping out) and Alex “The Invisible Man” Semin landing in Carolina, makes me wonder. Is this it…
