Brooks: Rangers interested in BU goalie Matt O’Connor

Per Larry Brooks, the New York Rangers are one of the many teams interested in Boston University goaltender Matt O’Connor. 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…

Projecting the Rangers’ 2015-2016 payroll (Part 1)

Last year, I started with a series of posts projecting the 2014-2015 New York Rangers payroll, and they were a series of posts I enjoyed writing. So with the trade deadline passed and a large majority of players locked up for next season, projecting the 2015-2016 Rangers payroll seems like the next logical step. Payroll is a huge concern for the…

Rangers drop exciting goalie duel in overtime to Detroit

Last night’s game between the New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings may have been low scoring, but it was a very exciting game filled with a lot of chances for both clubs. Both Cam Talbot and Jimmy Talbot Howard came up huge for both clubs, but it was Howard who won the duel after Marek Zidlicky beat Talbot in…

Practice notes: Sheppard in, Glass out

Per Rick Carpiniello, the newly acquired James Sheppard will skate on the fourth line with Dominic Moore and Jesper Fast. None of the top-nine forwards were touched, meaning Tanner Glass, despite improved play, will be the healthy scratch heading into tomorrow’s game in Detroit. The lines: Nash-Brassard-Zuccarello Kreider-Stepan-St. Louis Hagelin-Hayes-Miller Sheppard-Moore-Fast There are zero holes in those four lines. That…

Wing depth makes loss of Anthony Duclair easier to swallow

Perhaps the biggest concern with the deal for Keith Yandle is that the Rangers gave up Anthony Duclair to land Yandle. There was plenty of outrage over dealing Duclair, and it’s tough to really blame people for the outrage. Duclair isn’t even 20 yet, cracked the roster out of camp, and was showing significant promise as a potential impact player….

Rangers beat the best, take first place in Metro

The New York Rangers defeated the best team in the NHL last night, topping the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-1. This game was pure domination by the Rangers, who used their speed and tenacious forecheck to disrupt the Preds breakouts, forcing turnovers and converting those turnovers into goals. Cam Talbot was solid, making 25 saves in the win….
