One of the premier snipers in the league since he entered it as the first overall pick in 2002, Nash’s stock had fallen somewhat since […] The post The Resurgence of Rick Nash appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Alain Vigneault: Master Motivator

After the Rangers mutiny against Führer Tortorella back in the Spring of 2013, conventional wisdom was that the Rangers would replace him with a players coach. And that thought process was confirmed with the hiring of Alain Vigneault, who had the reputation of using a hands-off approach which allowed his players to police themselves While that coaching strategy was initially perceived as...

What’s best for Kevin Hayes?

Since the Rangers Are Resting So Am I

Inspired by this quote from Alain Vigneault yesterday regarding the Rangers three day break in between games… “It’s good for us, in a sense. Rest and recovery-wise, it’s excellent. And next week, obviously, we’ll have a lot of practice time…which you don’t get a chance for often in the regular season.” …I decided to take a little break today after pretty much going...

St. Louis playing an all-around game, but one thing’s missing

Martin St. Louis is doing just about everything for the Rangers this season. He has a team-leading five assists and is tied with Rick Nash with a plus-6 to lead the Blueshirts. Still, through seven games, St. Louis has only one goal. But if the inability to find the back of the net through the Rangers’ first seven games is bothering the 39-year-old, he’s not showing it. ...

An early look at Rangers line deployment

Although the New York Rangers’ lines are in a state of flux due to injuries, we have seen enough games thus far to get a fair barometer on how Alain Vigneault will deploy his lines throughout the season.

Rangers’ depth shining in the early going

Forget Mike Kostka. The one-game experiment with the 28-year-old defender notwithstanding, the Rangers’ depth has been extremely impressive so far this season. Derek Stepan and Dan Boyle are two enormous losses that most teams wouldn’t be able to withstand, but New York has weathered the storm remarkably well through seven games. It hasn’t been easy. Poor planning […] The...

Chris Mueller makes a quick impact with the Rangers

It’s not that the Martin St. Louis was bad at center for the Rangers, it’s that he’s so much better at right wing. The recall of center Chris Mueller has allowed St. Louis to shift back to the wing where he has extended the Rangers lineup to what is now two formidable scoring lines. St. continue reading...

Should the New York Rangers sign Marc Staal?

After a rough 1-3 start to the season, the New York Rangers have bounced back with two straight victories, in which they outscored opponents 6-1. However, despite the apparent return to form of Henrik Lundqvist and the improved play of the defense, the first six games have compounded a dilemma that has been bothering upper management for months: Should the Rangers resign Marc Staal...

The Demise of Michael Kostka Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

After Michael Kostka’s disaster of a Rangers debut in which he gave up two ill advised turnovers during the home opener, you’d assume his next game would be more likely with the Charlestown Chiefs than the New York Rangers. However, when Alain Vigneault is your head coach, the chance for redemption is always an arms length away. With Dan Girardi day-to-day with a laceration...
