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…

Thoughts following the trade deadline

The trade deadline came and went on Monday this season with a flurry of activity and some very big moves. Since I usually will write my articles for Friday, I haven’t really had a chance to weigh in at this point. I know that there has been a couple games in the interim, but since the Rangers don’t play again…

The Rangers pipeline shouldn’t concern you; musing the Rangers

The Rangers were unlucky to come out of Detroit with only one point. Then again, how often have we been able to say in the recent past that a Rangers team would be disappointed to come away from Detroit without the points despite out skilling and out skating the Wings? Call it progress. I saw someone call Wednesday’s game a…

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…

Game 63: Tough schedule continues in Detroit

March is a rough month for the New York Rangers, with their first five games of the month coming against teams that will make the playoffs. They got off to a good start, dominating the NHL’s best Predators on Monday, and now look to continue that strong play in Detroit against the Red Wings. Detroit was supposed to be in…

How does James Sheppard influence Oscar Lindberg’s future?

James Sheppard makes his Rangers debut against the Detroit Red Wings tonight so from a Rangers perspective we know very little about Sheppard. What we do know about Sheppard is that he brings faceoff skill (better than all but Dom Moore on the Rangers), versatility and defensive ability to the table. As a top ten pick back in 2006 he…

Salary cap implications of the Keith Yandle trade

Once again it seemed like Rangers GM Glen Sather had little to no maneuverability under the salary cap, and once again Slats found a way to wriggle his payroll under the cap ceiling. By exploiting a to this point little-used clause in the new collective bargaining agreement, Sather got Arizona to eat half of Yandle’s contract. Of course Sather had to…
