Rangers Spoil Blackhawks Banner Day and Win Season Opener

October 7th, 2015 at 11:48 pm by Andrew Wisneski

The Rangers kicked off the 2015-16 season with a 3-2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.  After a very lengthy banner-raising ceremony, the Rangers got off to a quick start, scoring three goals in the first period, which were all they would need to win, thanks to some outstanding goaltending from Henrik

Will the Rangers really cut Tanner Glass?!

September 25th, 2015 at 11:10 am by Bill

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

Rangers release Kabanov from PTO

September 24th, 2015 at 7:15 pm by Bill

Well that was short lived.

The Rangers made some additional cuts this evening, releasing Kirill Kabanov and some guy named Jayden Hart from their PTOs. Richard Nejezchleb and a Travis Oleksuk were re-assigned to Hartford. Kabanov had what amounted to about five days to impress the Rangers brass and he left them wanting. The writing was on the wall when he wasn’t in the lineup tonight and had only played in one of a possible three games. He didn’t leave much to evaluate in his one pre-season game against the Flyers and there already wasn’t a roster spot for him on the Rangers.

Oh well. It’s a shame too, I just learned how to confidently type his name.

Some quick thoughts on Oscar Lindberg and the Rangers lineup

September 23rd, 2015 at 1:06 pm by Bill

The Rangers 2015-16 campaign is just two pre-season games deep. The first wave of roster cuts has been made with virtually no surprises. Though I’m sure there is at least one heart broken for the demotion of Mackenzie Skapski. For the players remaining in camp, there are few roster spots to be had. Though Oscar Lindberg
