51 The Rangers’ Boyle-McIlrath-Diaz decision

Not sure if there’s a lot to make of this or not. But the Rangers have an agreement with Raphael Diaz — who was signed for one year, $700,000 as a free agent over the summer, but had to be demoted to Hartford (AHL) — to recall him or release…

Thoughts: 1) I still don’t think the Rangers are near where they will eventually be. But points are points are points, and they need them, and eight points in four games really moves you up in the standings. I think they were better against Pittsburgh, even though they blew the…
