New York Rangers season preview: A seemingly closing window

Plus: The Rangers have enjoyed a lot of success in the last four years, reaching the conference finals twice and the Stanley Cup Finals once. The core members of those teams are back. That group includes the main cogs of one of the best defenses in the NHL in goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and blue liners Ryan McDonagh, Marc Staal and Dan Girardi. New York also has some elite stars...

Despite “inferior” system, Rangers churning out NHL quality prospects

The strength of the farm system for the Rangers has been called into question numerous times in the past few years. In fact, I can’t remember the last time the Rangers were ranked –by a reputable source– in the top-half of the league. My guess is that it’s close to 2010, when the Rangers had […]

Four Thoughts: 10/5

1. As you may already know by now, Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna both cleared waivers Saturday afternoon paving the way for the 23 player lineup the Rangers are expected to begin the season with on Wednesday. There had been some internet reports about Diaz threatening to bolt back to Europe in case he didn’t make the team. It appears for now that he will report to Hartford, but...

What we learned from the Rangers preseason

The Rangers finished up their preseason schedule last week with a win over the Bruins, and then promptly made two more cuts to solidify the opening night roster at 23 players. Those 23 players will include 14 forwards. While most will not be happy with the decision to carry a 14th forward, be it Emerson […]

New York Rangers: Lindberg has earned a shot

The New York Rangers have finished the preseason and now have the next five days to come up with a starting lineup that is ready to face off against the Chicago Blackhawks. The majority of the roster was already set, so it was simply a matter of filling the holes of the third and fourth lines with a little competition in the preseason for those spots. So far, there’s only one line...

Rangers Backup Goalie Situation

View image | By Michael Monti It’s a known fact that Henrik Lundqvist will be the mainstay in net for the New York Rangers. In his 10-year NHL career Lundqvist has played in 620 games, winning 339, with 55 shutouts, a save percentage of .921 and a goals against average of 2.26. So, it will be hard for anyone to beat him out of his starting role. The question...

New York Rangers: Skjei shouldn’t have been cut yet

The New York Rangers have continued cutting down their roster, including highly-touted defensive prospect Brady Skjei. He, Dylan Mcilrath and Raphael Diaz have been competing for the seventh defenseman spot, and now it’s down to just Mcilrath and Diaz. He couldn’t have been because of his play, as he was incredibly solid in the days that he was with the team. He looked incredibly...

This week in stupid: The idea that Emerson Etem is not making the Rangers

Emerson Etem is making the Rangers. He will not be sent to Hartford and be exposed to waivers, where he will surely be claimed. The Rangers will not do so in order to keep Tanner Glass. This idea is incredibly stupid, but somehow a few Rangers beat writers all appear to have come to the conclusion continue reading...

New York Rangers: Who Will Make the Roster? Pt 2

A couple of more pre-season games have gone down, and some additional (unsurprising) cuts have been made to the roster. This is a continuation of my Wednesday column New York Rangers: Who Will Make the Roster? Pt 1 and will be focused on the offense this time. There are several players who are going to be on the opening game roster no matter what; incumbents who played significant...

Will the Rangers really cut Tanner Glass?!

I’ll believe it when I see it. Rumblings and grumblings from New York Rangers training camp suggest that Tanner Glass’ spot with the 2015-2016 Rangers is in jeopardy. Though the reason is logical –  to anyone with a pulse not named Alain Vigneault – it’s hard to imagine the Rangers and Vigneault making a linear continue reading...
