The Rangers and Sabres game scheduled for Friday, November 21, at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo has been postponed due to the insane amount of snow that has and is continuing to hit the area. No make-up date has been announced just yet for the game. I hope this isn’t forecasting what winter could
Tomas Kaberle rejected the Rangers contract offer, which was presumably a two-way contract that would have kept in Hartford for the time being.
Go back to living your life.
I realize that the Rangers intranet is going to burst if (or when) the organization signs Tomas Kaberle this afternoon, but lets all drink down a nice tall glass of calming liquid.
The Rangers have been pushed to the brink of their organizational depth on defense. We’ve already seen Dylan McIlrath, Mike Kostka, Conor Allen, and Matt Hunwick this season. Adding in another body, even one that is just that, a body of a player who hasn’t been relevant in three years, is an improvement of sorts.
I’m a referee, which means you probably hate me. But it also means I know what the right or wrong call is. Whenever there is a controversial call, I will weigh in with impunity. The game was over, the teams had began to leave the ice surface, fans filed out, and the New York Rangers had
The Rangers have announced the Dan Boyle will return to the lineup tonight after missing about 5 weeks with a broken hand. He sustained that injury on opening night against the St. Louis Blues when he blocked a slap shot. The will be Boyle’s MSG debut wearing a Rangers uniform. After practice this morning, he spoke
In the couple months that I’ve been on board here, I’ve written a non-trivial amount about how much I dislike the fact that Dan Girardi is a first-pair defenseman on a long-term, big-money deal for the Rangers. He stinks on the PK, doesn’t produce on the power play, and seems to be a boat anchor
The Rangers made a few moves this evening, recalling Jesper Fast and demoting the rarely used Ryan Malone and Conor “Shades of Anton” Allen to the AHL. The addition of Fast is something most of the Rangers intranet has been clamoring for. Though I do think he has a role to play on the fourth
Kevin Hayes has a promising future, but his time isn’t now.
Brad Richard’s departure via buyout has left a void on the Rangers third line that they’ve never filled. Derek Stepan’s injury made their lack of center depth obvious, but his return doesn’t solve their original problem. The team does not have a third line center.
Alain Vigneault seems resigned to giving Dominic Moore third line center minutes, this isn’t a long-term solution. Although Moore is a solid hockey player, as we saw last season, he’s best suited for the fourth line. In fact, the Rangers really need him on the fourth line. He’s the only center capable of being given extreme defensive zone starts and not getting his teeth kicked in.
