RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers’ obsession with depth leads them to free-agent forward

One of the tenets of general managers is that a team can never have enough depth. Well, Rangers GM Jeff Gorton certainly is taking that one to heart. Gorton was close Thursday to completing a contract for yet another free-agent forward, 25-year-old Brandon Pirri, for a reported one-year, $1.1 million deal. It is a low-risk,...

Rangers ink Brandon Pirri to one-year deal

The Rangers have made another shrewd signing, inking free agent forward Brandon Pirri to a one-year deal worth $1.1 million, per Elliotte Friedman. Pirri is another low-key forward who has solid rate metrics, which suggest he could see an increase in production if given more time. Pirri scored a whopping 22 goals in 49 games […] The post Rangers ink Brandon Pirri to one-year deal...

On Henrik Lundqvist’s so-called “decline”

Henrik Lundqvist has been the backbone and the face of the New York Rangers for over a decade. It’s been a fascinating career to watch, as we have become somewhat jaded to his consistent excellence and the impact he has had on a franchise in transition, coming out of the lockout in 2005. Now, at […] The post On Henrik Lundqvist’s so-called “decline” appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Musing the Rangers: Gerbe, Hank, Vesey & Fast

It’s the true dog days of the hockey season (I feel like I have written that a few times already this summer). Let’s jump into a mainly Rangers musings post but sprinkle in a little league wide news. I really like the Nathan Gerbe signing. He’s ridiculously small but in today’s league that has never […] The post Musing the Rangers: Gerbe, Hank, Vesey & Fast appeared...

Can Chris Kreider be a Consistent Force for the New York Rangers?

This fall, New York Rangers’ left wing Chris Kreider will certainly have high expectations placed on him. But this is nothing new for the 25-year-old Massachusetts native. Last season, Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault stated that Kreider should be a 30 goal scorer. Well, in 2015-16 Kreider’s 21 goal total was disappointing, but entering the 2016-17 season, the Rangers...

Sean Avery hassles homeless people, posts it on Snapchat

Sean Avery was known as a pesky, trash-talking menace during his playing days in the NHL, and it appears his sometimes-unbecoming and off-putting conduct on the ice — not to mention off of it — has continued on in his retirement. The former New York Rangers star has taken to posting videos on Snapchat in which he hassles homeless people. The standard encounter Avery has with...
