Spotlighting Stepan’s Contract Situation

I know there’s been a ton on the blog recently regarding Derek Stepan and his eventual new deal with the Rangers but in the last couple days, a couple points have come up that bears repeating when it comes to Stepan and his pending arbitration hearing. First off, I have to correct an error regarding the last post on Stepan from Saturday which was highlighted on social media yesterday...

Opportunities remain for Ranger prospects such as Tambellini

The future starts now for the Rangers. Every team need entry level contracted players to step up and provide cap relief and ideally play significant minutes – it’s a critical part of successful salary cap survival. With Derek Stepan about to get a serious pay rise (thanks Buffalo) the Rangers will need a younger player […]

Projecting the Rangers 2015-2016 payroll (Part 2)

Every season, I write a series of posts projecting the New York Rangers payroll for the following season. For the 2015-2016 season, I started after the trade deadline with the initial projections. The Rangers have seen a few roster moves since then, thus the projections for this season changed a bit. The Rangers still have four key […]

Derek Stepan Elects For Player Arbitration

per NHLPA: derek stepan has filed for arbitration. — Neill Fowler (@NYRblogneill) July 5, 2015 Most of us know the routine by now… Stepan electing arbitration means he can’t be offer sheeted by another team. Just part of the process. Arbitration hearings start two weeks from tomorrow. Meanwhile out in Anaheim, Carl Hagelin did not elect arbitration. Come on Gorton, give Hags...

Changing approach to rewarding youth should worry Rangers

The New York Rangers ought to be concerned and not necessarily because of Derek Stepan’s current contract situation but because of the looming contract issues that currently sit just over the horizon. The NHL annual free agency frenzy was surprisingly (and encouragingly) muted this summer but don’t let that fool you. The leagues’ posse of […]

New York Rangers find their backup in Antti Raanta

The New York Rangers were busy this weekend, shopping backup goalie Cam Talbot, one of the hottest goaltenders on the market. After weeks of speculation, the Rangers shipped Talbot to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for draft picks.

New York Rangers: adjö, Carl Hagelin and Cam Talbot

Sigh. It finally happened. Cam Talbot has been traded by the New York Rangers to the Edmonton Oilers. No, not for Nail Yakupov or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Jordan Eberle or for any physical human being. The Rangers traded him for three picks in the draft, specifically numbers 57, 79, and 184. The Rangers then sent the 57th pick to Washington for two later round picks. Glen Sather screwed...

The New York Rangers have to be joking, right?

…What was that?! That wasn’t the plan! Old Glen pulled a fast one on us! All day there were wasted claims made by Darren Dreger and other legitimate sources that the New York Rangers were going to trade Cam Talbot either before the draft or during it, which would help maintain his trade value. All week we’ve been hearing that he would be traded sometime this week. Sure, the...

New York Rangers: So long, farewell Cam Talbot

The New York Rangers have confirmed that Cam Talbot will be traded either before the draft or during the draft, and understandably so. He has an extremely high trade value, as he proved that he is capable of being a starting goaltender, and there are several teams in the league (namely five) that are in tremendous need of one. His value will of course decline significantly if he’s...
