The New York Rangers have signed 2013 third round pick Adam Tambellini to a three-year entry-level contract. Tambellini, currently with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL, has a line of 45-34-79 in 65 games this season as an overager.

So long, Nassau Coliseum

Tonight, the New York Rangers will play their final regular season game at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The building has been home to the New York Islanders since they came into the league, but is easily the most dilapidated building in the NHL. Every time I’ve been in the past five years, my shoes have stuck to the ground,…

Lineup notes: Tanner Glass in for James Sheppard tomorrow

Alain Vigneault is shuffling the lines a bit for tomorrow’s showdown with the Islanders, and will be dressing Tanner Glass on the fourth line over James Sheppard. Sheppard had been used with Dominic Moore and Jesper Fast as the 4LW, providing some much needed defensive stability to a fourth line that really needed a defensively solid LW. It is likely…

Concerns with the Kreider-Stepan-St. Louis line

The New York Rangers have been rolling lately, and when you’re rolling, you don’t mess with what works. That said, there is a growing concern with the second line of Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Martin St. Louis. The line, which has been together for almost 50 games thus far, has been very inconsistent, with all three experiencing prolonged scoring droughts. They’ve been…

O’Connor attended Rangers prospect camp this past summer, and the Rangers may be interested as a potential Cam Talbot replacement after next season. Talbot is signed for next year at $1.45 million, and while he has been a strong backup,…

Admin stuff: What do you want to see added?

It’s a bit of a slow weekend, and I figure now is the best time to assess what everyone thinks of the new design and things you want to see added or updated. We launched the new design in December, and I’ve made a few tweaks as time has passed (URL color, number of comments, things like that). There are…
