RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Does it make sense to trade Rick Nash?

This offseason is a critical one for Jeff Gorton and the New York Rangers. A team with significant holes and cap problems, the Rangers will need to get creative and possibly break a few fan’s hearts in order to get back to respectability and a true chance at the Stanley Cup. Because one thing is […] The post Does it make sense to trade Rick Nash? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Will Ulf Samuelsson Stay with the Rangers?

The New York Rangers were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs sooner than expected and following that defeat there has been plenty of blame spread around the team. Off-seasons always see players move around but something that seems to have stuck out from breakup day was head coach Alain Vigneault being somewhat sure that the team would look different next season. One particular...

Should the Rangers Trade Rick Nash?

The New York Rangers have a busy offseason ahead of them, and a handful of moves in particular that they should prioritize for both short-term and long-term success. One move, however, that might not top their list of priorities but could improve the team nonetheless, would be to trade winger Rick Nash. Of course, in making such a move — or any transaction, for that matter ...

Another Year, Another Eulogy

We are gathered here today to say farewell to the 2015-16 New York Rangers, a flawed group with high expectations following two somewhat successful seasons that fell just short in the end. This group couldn’t hold a candle to the two teams that came before them as the 2014 and 2015 teams went out with their dignity and heads held high. The 2016 team, as predictable as they were...

Should the Rangers fire Alain Vigneault?

For those of you who have been following Blue Seat Blogs for several years, or perhaps follow me on Twitter @thehockeysuit (shameless plug), know that I’m an eternal centrist. I can often see multiple sides of an argument no matter how extreme. Since the Rangers laid an egg to Pittsburgh – and probably even before […] The post Should the Rangers fire Alain Vigneault? appeared...

Video: Dan Boyle/Larry Brooks Full Exchange

This makes me long for Torts pressers and those exchanges with the media. The good ol’ days…. I’m not even going to begin to speculate exactly what set Boyle off, but there were apparently off ice issues with Boyle that the writers were made aware of and negated to take into account. Tuesday’s throw down in the Rangers practice facility was likely just the tip of the iceberg...

Winds of change coming to Rangers after early playoff exit

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) Change is coming to the New York Rangers, and it probably will hit the core group that carried the team deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs the past two seasons. It's the price of failing miserably when expectations are high. After reaching the Stanley Cup Final in 2014 and making the Eastern Conference Final last year, coach Alain Vigneault felt Ryan McDonagh...

Report: Dan Boyle blasts reporters, asked two to leave

Dan Boyle’s short tenure with the New York Rangers is over. The defenseman had a tough end to his stint in the Big Apple after signing a two-year deal worth $9 million in 2014. Boyle was a good possession player while scoring 24 points in 2015-16, but ended his career in the press box as a healthy scratch against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Rangers' first-round loss. Boyle...

Rangers season ends in embarrassment, disappointment

It was a disappointing end to the season to say the least, with the shock of Rangers’ blowout loss to Pittsburgh away matched only by their previous two efforts at home. The game was microcosmic of the season – flashes of pomising play at the beginning, with defensive breakdowns and endemic failure getting worse over […] The post Rangers season ends in embarrassment, disappointment...

New York Rangers: Death by implosion

In five playoff games, the New York Rangers put out five different lineups. The doors blew off, and the Rangers were knocked out in five games, just as predicted they would if the lineups weren’t correct. It was clear heading into the playoffs that this team was looking terrible. It was clear that the New York Rangers should have been trying to get a first-round match-up with the...

Rangers trying to overcome 3-1 deficit yet again

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) Trailing 3-1 in a series is nothing new for the New York Rangers. It's the third consecutive year it's happened. They rallied against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the conference semifinals in 2014. They did the same thing against Washington last season, becoming the first NHL team to overcome 3-1 deficits in consecutive seasons. The Rangers have won 15 of the...

WATCH: Letang viciously slashes Stalberg, won’t be suspended

Out of all of the playoff series happening, the most cordial of the bunch seems to be the Penguins and Rangers. The tenor of the series may have just changed with Kris Letang’s slash on Viktor Stalberg in Game 3. When watching it in real time, it doesn’t seem too bad. The replay shows a completely different story. Letang takes a second and makes the decision to follow through...

The New York Rangers are their own worst enemy

There’s only one way for the New York Rangers to have played game three. First home game of the playoffs, the captain and best defenseman comes back into the lineup, the series is tied up a game a piece, and the Rangers come out flatter than a pancake. Zero offensive production. Only ten total shots by Rangers forwards in the game. A Nashty shorthander and pretty solid defense...

New York Rangers: How to win game 3

The New York Rangers picked up a HUGE win in Pittsburgh to send the series back to MSG split at one game a piece. The team was exponentially better defensively once Dan Girardi came out of the lineup, and the top six forwards picked up the production to help win the game 4-2. Now heading into game three, the team has to figure out what they’re going to do about their blue-line...

The New York Rangers’ Playoff Hopes Begin and end with Henrik Lundqvist

Henrik Lundqvist has been the best player on the New York Rangers for years; his dominance earning him the nickname “The King.”  He is easily the Rangers most impactful player and their playoff success will depend on how far he is able to carry them.  That is why when he was injured in the first period of Game 1 between the Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins, Rangers fans held...

Video: Tanner Glass takes puck to face, gets bloodied

Playoff hockey is a tough time for everyone. Star players often get down in the muck and mire. In the case of Tanner Glass, he is always down there. So when he took a puck to the face on the first night of the playoffs, it almost felt like a rite of passage. The cut isn’t too big, but I wouldn’t want to take a puck to the face. Glass was able to return to the game, but the Rangers...
