Rangers sign Chris Bourque

July 2, 2014, by

In an unannounced move made late last night, the Rangers added some more depth in Hartford, signing Ryan Bourque’s brother Chris to a one-year, two-way contract worth $600k at the NHL level.  Bourque has 51 games of NHL experience, and his last role was with the Bruins (18 games). He played in the KHL and Swiss league last year.

      They needed help, they were atrocious.

        I would love for you guys to do an article on what went wrong with the WolfPack this season. I really thought back in Sept-Oct that they had a fantastic team with all the kids there. If you folks can put together a series analyzing the team, broken up (forwards, d-men, goalies, special teams, then an overall wrap-up), that would be great.

          Just a guess, but I imagine that when they lost Cam Talbot that was the end of the Wolfpack.

          Cam was the Wolfpack version of Henrik for the first couple weeks of the season, covering up enormous holes on the team.

          Also, you could have a bunch of great prospects in the AHL but if you don’t bring in some quality, career AHL’ers, it’s hard to be competitive.

          This was a bad team ,a soft team ,a team that lost big time money, a team that plays in a outdated barn. If not for MSG money this team would have moved to Glenn Falls this year or if Dolan had won the NVMC bid the team would move to Long Island

        • Dave says:

          They lost Talbot, that was the biggest thing.

            At the beginning of the year the Wolfpack were outstanding, but then they lost Talbot & Kreider and also Miller for stretches & Fast got injured. Then it was a completely different team. As for Ryan Bourque, he had an outstanding season although I know most Ranger fans think he is nothing but a spare part. He is an exceptional skater and good penalty killer but he is yet another small player which some will hate. I can see him on the 4th line with Moore as a great PK tandem. It’s all about confidence for him but he plays the whole 185 feet.
