RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Preseason Game 2: Devils at Rangers

After a great start to the preseason, the Rangers are back in action tonight against the Devils. Much of the focus will again be on the top line of Vesey-Hayes-Nash. Similar to the Kreider-Zibanejad-Buchnevich line, this is something that Alain Vigneault is at least experimenting with as a possible regular season line. Buchnevich, by the […] The post Preseason Game 2: Devils at...

Rangers have a lot to gain if they unlock Brandon Pirri’s potential

It’s an NHL in which natural goal-scorers are at a premium, so why in the world is 25-year-old, low-cost, natural goal-scorer Brandon Pirri on his fourth team in 30 months? “You know, there were different circumstances in each place, but I’m not concerned about the past,” Pirri, a $1.1 million free agent signee with the...

Rangers among teams “significantly” interested in Jacob Trouba

A report from Ian McLaren –citing Bob McKenzie, so this has legs– is stating that the Rangers are one of the many teams (duh) interested in Winnipeg Jets Jacob Trouba. I’d venture a guess that every team is somewhat interested in him, but the article calls out the Rangers, Avalanche, Bruins, and Coyotes as the teams […] The post Rangers among teams “significantly” interested...

Pirri Poses Interesting Problem for Rangers

One product of having great depth at one or more positions is the struggle in deciding who plays and who sits. It can become a problem in a sense, but a good problem at that, as all of the options a team has are strong. The New York Rangers are facing this exact problem with the glut of NHL-capable forwards they have. Likely only 13, and no more than 14 will make the NHL roster...

The New York Rangers Get Their Man – Former Portland Winterhawk Eric Doyle

As the WHL Season starts to get into full swing, NHL training camps are starting to release players back to their respective junior clubs. One player, rather, ex-player is getting a shot from the WHL to the NHL. Eric Doyle, a defenseman with the Portland Winterhawks in the 2009-10 season, signed on with the New York Rangers as a scout. Doyle, who started his career with the Everett...

Does it have to be Adam Clendening or Dylan McIlrath for the Rangers?

Rangers fans were buzzing on Tuesday night. It wasn’t just because hockey was back, or that the Chris Kreider-Mika-Zibanejad-Pavel Buchnevich line seemed to be clicking either. It was watching Adam Clendening’s performance. Clendening stole the show, as his poise with the puck and ability to make smart passes to start the breakout both at even […] The post Does it have to be...

Three big Rangers pieces return on World Cup highs

These Rangers are slowly becoming more whole, and those remaining pieces rejoining the team at training camp couldn’t be more eager to return.

Why Vigneault’s strategy for ‘D’ may be problematic for Rangers

There seems to be a disconnect between philosophy and roster, leaving a glaring question about what Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wants and what he has on defense. Vigneault made his point pretty clear before his team’s preseason-opening 5-2 win over the Islanders on Tuesday night at the Garden. Asked if he wanted more physicality from...

Antti Raanta Will Be Key for the Rangers

Antti Raanta will need to be as sturdy as ever this year to give the New York Rangers a chance at a playoff spot. Last year the Finish netminder was reasonable, posting 11 wins in 25 games played, but the fact is that the Rangers only felt comfortable giving the 27-year-old 18 starts on the year. It isn’t that he was bad he just never really seemed to have a stretch of play where...

Lundqvist, Sweden's elders at World Cup know time is short

When Henrik Lundqvist carried a Swedish flag around the ice at the 2006 Turin Olympics with a gold medal dangling from his neck, he was a fresh-faced kid days shy of his 24th birthday. A seventh-round pick in 2000, Lundqvist was in his first season in the NHL with the New York Rangers and still relatively unknown outside Sweden. In his first major international event, he led Sweden...

Can Chris Kreider be a Consistent Force for the New York Rangers?

This fall, New York Rangers’ left wing Chris Kreider will certainly have high expectations placed on him. But this is nothing new for the 25-year-old Massachusetts native. Last season, Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault stated that Kreider should be a 30 goal scorer. Well, in 2015-16 Kreider’s 21 goal total was disappointing, but entering the 2016-17 season, the Rangers...
