RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Would Steven Stamkos Make Sense for the Rangers?

With the New York Rangers now in the middle of their offseason, rumors are starting to swirl about potential moves that the team could make. Steven Stamkos is one of the marquee players in the NHL right now, and he’s due to be an Unrestricted Free Agent (UFA) this summer, and as is with every free agent it’s been speculated whether or not the Rangers would have interest. There’s...

Four Thoughts: 5/24

1. Back from week long vacation. Let’s catch up. Derick Brassard led Team Canada in scoring with 11 points in 10 game at Worlds as the Canadians won their second gold medal in as many years. I know players’ performances at Worlds don’t mean a great deal, but it got me thinking about something else about the Rangers’ offseason plans. Much has been made about the Rangers not...

Analyzing the potential for a New York Rangers blockbuster trade

Unless you were living under a rock this season, you noticed that the Rangers need to make some changes if they wish to stay relevant in the NHL. Without singling out specific players, they were slow, apathetic, careless, and sloppy all season long. Some of it was attitude, with the apparent expectation that they could […] The post Analyzing the potential for a New York Rangers...

He thinks the Rangers have been asked about the 31-year-old forward, speculating they could move him under the right circumstances.

Rangers should pursue Vadim Shipachyov

With the exciting news of Pavel Buchnevich finally signing with the Rangers there’s been some talk of finding a fellow Russian to help ease the transition to North America for the highly touted youngster. While this discussion has involved Alex Radulov, given the likelihood of the Rangers parting ways with Dominic Moore there might be […] The post Rangers should pursue Vadim...

Report: Rangers may make Rick Nash available

Rick Nash could be available this summer. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman said he thinks the New York Rangers are willing to move the former 40-goal scorer under the right scenario, during his Saturday’s Headlines segment. (H/T Rory Boylen of Sportsnet for transcribing.) “You’re going to hear a lot of wild rumours this year George [ Stroumboulopoulos], I think this is going...

The New York Rangers need a puck-moving defenseman

What partially made the New York Rangers excellent in the 2014-15 season was the fact that they were able to play a good transition game out of their own zone with exceptional speed. However, in the 2015-16 season, the outlet passes of the Rangers defensemen took a gigantic step back in terms of quality, especially considering they lost a lot of speed in the lineup. The team D used...

Pavel Buchnevich can help define Alain Vigneault’s Rangers tenure

We keep hearing the comparisons between Evgeni Kuznetsov and Rangers prospect Pavel Buchnevich. Also how Buchnevich bested KHL numbers from a certain Vladimir Tarasenko – arguably the best young sniper in the NHL today. We also hear that expectations should be tempered for Buchnevich partly based on the period of adjustment required for the aforementioned […] The post Pavel Buchnevich...

10 Targets: Off-Season Moves – 5 Defensemen

It was surprising to most, that the 2015-16 New York Rangers struggled so badly in their own end. For years the defense and goaltending were the only bright spots on the team, grinding their way to Game 7 in nearly ever series, willing their way to an Eastern Conference Final on nothing but JAM™ and lucky bounces (Marian Gaborik not withstanding). But all those years of chasing...

The New York Rangers have inked the future

The New York Rangers have officially signed 2013 3rd-round forward Pavel Buchnevich to an entry-level contract. Buchnevich is undoubtedly the best forward prospect in the Rangers system, and he’s drawing plenty of comparisons to Evgeny Kuznetsov and Vladimir Tarasenko, although he’s not projected to play as well as them. The kid put on a pretty good show at the World Juniors...

New York Rangers: Raanta returns

The New York Rangers have re-signed Antti Raanta to a two-year, $2 million contract. It seemed pretty likely that he was going to stay with the team, and it was really only a matter of how much we were going to pay him. He’s a phenomenal backup goaltender and did very well this year, but it’s important that we didn’t overpay him since we have other free agents that need more...

Report: Dan Boyle blasts reporters, asked two to leave

Dan Boyle’s short tenure with the New York Rangers is over. The defenseman had a tough end to his stint in the Big Apple after signing a two-year deal worth $9 million in 2014. Boyle was a good possession player while scoring 24 points in 2015-16, but ended his career in the press box as a healthy scratch against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Rangers' first-round loss.

WATCH: Letang viciously slashes Stalberg, won’t be suspended

Out of all of the playoff series happening, the most cordial of the bunch seems to be the Penguins and Rangers. The tenor of the series may have just changed with Kris Letang’s slash on Viktor Stalberg in Game 3. When watching it in real time, it doesn’t seem too bad. The replay shows a completely different story. Letang takes a second and makes the decision to follow through...
