RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Vigneault backs off JT Miller comments

New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault may not have meant for his comments regarding JT Miller to be “pointy”, but they sure sounded like it at the time. Yesterday, Vigneault clarified his previous comments. Via Katie Strang: “I would say those comments might have been interpreted by you as pointed. I would say to you that 95 percent of young players have to figure it...

Richards focused on title for Rangers, not his future

By definition, there is much at stake for every player, every coach and every management person during the playoffs. Careers can be made or derailed. Reputations that will last a lifetime can be established, for better or worse. Jobs can be secured or lost. There is no Ranger with more personally at stake in this tournament than Brad Richards. When the bell rings on Round 1 against...

Why the Rangers need to address the center position this summer

Not a single team currently ranked lower than the Rangers in face-off percentage this year will be in the playoffs. The last four Stanley Cup Champions (Chicago (twice), LA and Boston) rank 5th, 3rd and 8th respectively in face-off success.

New York Rangers: Henrik Lundqvist Needs a Ring to be Called King

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist has established himself as the king of the crease on the grandest stage, the world’s most famous arena. Throughout his career for the blue shirts, Lundqvist has conquered every mountain there is for an NHL goaltender. Most career wins and shutouts for the franchise? check.

Rangers Recall JT Miller

The New York Rangers have recalled JT Miller today, just ahead of the first round playoff matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers. The Wolf Pack’s season is practically over and I would expect an influx of ‘black aces’ in the near future. Miller was scolded in the media by Alain Vigneault on April 2nd, following his demotion to Hartford. Jesper Fast has fit nicely in his brief...

Zipay: Kreider may be ready for second round

Per Steve Zipay, injured winger Chris Kreider will likely miss the first round of the playoffs, but should be ready for the second round should the Rangers advance: Chris Kreider (surgery on left hand March 28) is progressing and the 17-goal scorer should be ready if the Rangers advance to the second round. This means […]

McDonagh’s Returning ; Which Defenseman Sits?

The Rangers’ borderline Norris-caliber defenseman Ryan McDonagh is returning to the lineup just in time for the start of the NHL playoffs. That’s good. The Rangers have seven defensemen on the roster who have justified, by some measure, a spot in the Game One lineup on Thursday. That’s also good. Unfortunately, Alain Vigneault can only dress six defensemen, and thus he has...

Fast or Carcillo: Lineup decision plays key role

When Chris Kreider went down with his hand injury, the Rangers were left with a problem in their top-six forwards. There were few options to fill in for Kreider, and none that could provide the scoring threat that Kreider provides on a nightly basis. Dan Carcillo has been a pleasant surprise, and Jesper Fast has […]

Guy at Rangers game wonders how many periods are in a game

It’s safe to say that this kid at Madison Square Garden for last night’s Rangers-Hurricanes game was not the biggest hockey fan in attendance. In fact, I think it might be safe to assume that this was his first time attending an NHL game considering the photo above of him searching how many periods there are in a game of hockey. I guess he didn’t really enjoy the Rangers...
