RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Game 29: Please play a dominant game

The Rangers have had a rough stretch, going 4-5-1 in their last ten while playing some pretty ugly hockey. Given the significance of the injuries, it can be said that staying around hockey .500 is a win for this club. In my humble opinion, the injuries and inconsistent goaltending –based on what we are used […] The post Game 29: Please play a dominant game appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The $59M Henrik Lundqvist question looms now more than ever

Mats Zuccarello’s Slower Season

Mats Zuccarello has been one of the New York Rangers’ top forwards in recent years, but so far this season he’s been a bit less noticeable. Whenever the small Norwegian forward touches the puck in Madison Square Garden, “Zuuuuccc” can be heard cascading down from the crowd, and for a good reason. Zuccarello has been a spark plug for the Rangers who plays with tremendous...

Rangers have an idea how to shake up the power play

Adam Clendening could get the call to rejoin the Rangers lineup Thursday night in Winnipeg. And if he does, it will be to provide a power-play right-shot counterpoint to lefty Brandon Pirri rather than to provide relief on defense.

Hopefully the Rangers won’t have considered shopping JT Miller, Kevin Hayes or any of the ‘core’ kids to help address the team’s obvious flaws but one player who has constantly been touted as a trade chip has been Oscar Lindberg. Thanks to the way the Rangers have utilised Lindberg it’s hard to see any kind […] The post Rangers depth and team’s handling of Oscar Lindberg...

Skjei Here to Stay

New York Rangers fans can hang their hats on an Eastern Conference Title

The disappointment that has followed the New York Rangers for much of the past 75 years has increased the burden on its current batch of players. Its rabid fan base has only seen one Stanley Cup title during that span and that one took place 22 years ago. With the Rangers having gotten off to a hot start at 14-5-1 this season, thoughts of raising Lord Stanley again have inevitably...

Can the New York Rangers continue scoring at this pace?

The New York Rangers’ confidence level is at an all-time high as they’re the highest scoring team (72 goals in 17 games) in the NHL. Pucks are going into the net at a record pace.
