Reviewing the 2006 Draft

Drafts are a tricky beast. It is almost impossible to really evaluate how a team did on draft day, or for several years following the draft. The general rule of thumb is to wait three or four years before really digging down and seeing how a team performed in the draft. Waiting five years, as we have done with this…

Rangers Trade Bobby Sanguinetti To Carolina

In some unsurprising news, the Rangers have traded prospect Bobby Sanguinetti to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 2010 6th round pick (for who the Rangers pick, see the post below), and a 2011 2nd round pick (originally Washington’s pick). Sanguinetti had not only fallen on the depth chart behind other prospects, but had fallen out of favor with…

Draft Day Two Coverage (Rangers Trade Bobby Sanguinetti)

Well, yesterday was interesting. The Rangers surprised everyone by picking Dylan McIlrath, but that was a solid pick, and many will realize this soon. As we enter Day Two of the draft, the Rangers hold picks in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 7th rounds. The draft will be covered on the NHL network. For you Twitter bugs, @NHL will be…

Rangers With Five in Top 80 Prospects

Yesterday, Puck Prospectus released it’s Top 100 prospects, and it is nice to see four Rangers on this list, all within the Top 80. The five Rangers within the top 80 shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, as these are generally the top five prospects that we all want to see wearing Rangers blue in the very, very near…

Top Draft Picks of The Decade

Yeah, yeah, I know. The decade ended already. We’re in a new one. But, better late than never, right? I’ve seen a lot of these, and wanted to throw in my two cents. Here are the Rangers top 10 draft picks of the decade (Note: I considered time played with the Rangers. Marek Zidlicky was a great pick, but he…

Gilroy Called Up

Matt Gilroy has been called up to the Rangers after his stint in Hartford. He will be the sixth defenseman, replacing the recently sent down Ilkka Heikkinen and Bobby Sanguinetti. This isn’t really a surprise, as Heikkinen and Sanguinetti didn’t play much in yesterday’s game against the Flyers. This again leaves the Rangers with just six defenseman and 14 forwards.

Heikkinen, Sanguinetti Re-Assigned To Hartford

Rangers defensemen Ilkka Heikkinen and Bobby Sanguinetti have been re-assigned to Hartford, according to Andrew Gross. No other moves were made. We can assume that the Rangers will put Wade Redden back in the lineup, and call up Matt Gilroy. But still, I don’t understand this move. Benching Redden is working. Heikkinen, I thought, had played well. Sanguinetti was expendable,…

Redden, Kotalik Benched

You wanted changes? Well, you got changes. Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik will be healthy scratches for tonight’s game against the Islanders. Bobby Sanguinetti and Erik Christensen will take their place.  We all expected something to be done, especially after the tirade by Torts. And Kotalik deserves to be benched. But I would have much rather seen Chris Higgins, or…

Sanguinetti Recalled

As per Andrew Gross, Bobby Sanguinetti has been recalled to the Rangers for the current stretch of three games in four nights. It provides the Rangers with more flexibility, in case someone gets hurt or, if we are so lucky, Michal Rozsival gets benched.

Sanguinetti Sent Down

Bobby Sanguinetti’s short stay on Broadway has come to an end. The young defenseman was sent back to Hartford today, after an unimpressive three games. Nothing about Sanguinetti really stood out, but the fact that he was only a -1 when the Rangers were outscored 18-6 in his three games up isn’t bad. With Sanguinetti being sent down, it looks…
