Dreger: Rangers, Mats Zuccarello involved in extension talks

Per Darren Dreger, the New York Rangers and winger Mats Zuccarello are involved in contract talks to keep the winger with the Rangers long-term. This is great news, as Zucc is one of those guys that you need to keep around (Chris disagrees). Dreger noted that the Rangers love Zucc, and want him here. They also won’t be trading him at…

Prospect fatigue and Dylan McIlrath

For those of you that have been around for a while, you know that in the beginning, Mike Axisa of River Ave Blues was a bit helper in getting us off the ground here. Naturally, I’m a Yankee fan, and I read RAB daily. Recently, Mike penned a post about prospect fatigue, and how fans and experts alike sometimes get…

Rangers rally for three straight goals, sink Isles

Well this sure was an entertaining game. The New York Rangers overcame three separate two-goal leads and scored three straight goals in the third period to beat the New York Islanders for the first time this season by a score of 6-5. Both Cam Talbot and Jaroslav Halak put on a clinic of how not to goalie, allowing a couple…

Game 55: Please, just once, beat the Islanders

The New York Rangers are winner of three in a row against teams that are not making the playoffs, but now are on Long Island to take on the New York Islanders to try and at least win one game against them this season. The Isles have owned the Rangers this season, going 3-0 in games that weren’t really close,…

Ok, perhaps Martin St. Louis could be the odd-man out

I guess I’m going to hedge my bets here. When Marc Staal signed his massive contract extension, my initial thought was that Carl Hagelin was going to be the odd-man out. It was a purely business decision under the assumption that the New York Rangers were, without a doubt, re-signing Martin St. Louis to an incentive-laden contract. After all, the Rangers…

Cody Franson, Mike Santorelli traded to Nashville

First a quick admin note, there won’t be a goal breakdown for last night’s game. Naturally, I spent the day with my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day, and she takes precedence over the Rangers. Yea, I said that. So you can use this to discuss the game. Also, the Toronto Maple Leafs traded Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli to the Nashville…

Game 54: Finish the western road trip with a win against the Coyotes

The New York Rangers tonight are in Glendale to take on the Arizona Coyotes, as they look to make it three in a row against pretty bad teams. The issue though, is that the Rangers, while still putting up W’s, aren’t really playing that well. Yea, they beat Colorado, and they beat Toronto, but both of those wins were ugly,…

Rangers outlast Avalanche to make it two in a row

The New York Rangers followed up that debacle –albeit a two point debacle—in Toronto with a strong showing in Colorado last night, defeating the Avalanche by a score of 6-3. Kevin Hayes stole the show with a highlight reel goal and a snazzy assist, but it was an overall strong team effort that resulted in the win. Cam Talbot was…

Game 53: Continue beating bad teams in Colorado

After barely squeaking out a win in Toronto, the Rangers are in Denver tonight to take on the Colorado Avalanche. The Avs sit in last place in the Central Division after making the playoffs last season. This isn’t that surprising, as most #fancystats folks predicted a monumental fall from grace, which was followed up by multiple humorous attempts to grab their…
