Ryan Callahan couldn’t find common ground on a new contract with the Rangers, and now he’s bound for Tampa Bay.
Barring a sudden breakthrough in negotiations, the Rangers must trade captain Ryan Callahan before Friday’s 3 p.m. roster freeze. If they don’t, they are taking a huge risk.
If Ryan Callahan’s comments can be taken at face value, his desire is to remain with the only organization he’s ever known.
The Rangers are getting contributions from different players on different nights. This isn’t a team that is reliant on Rick Nash taking over a game. The wealth of goal-scoring is being evenly distributed.
It’s taken some growing pains, but the Rangers have finally figured out Vigneault’s possession-based uptempo system, which requires intensive skating, crisp, intricate passing and defensemen understanding when to join the attack.
Dynamic Rangers winger Chris Kreider is starting to separate himself from the pack in a crowded Calder Trophy race.
The Rangers acquired tough guy Dan Carcillo from the Kings for a seventh-round pick in the 2014 draft.
Zuccarello is giving the Rangers a tremendous bang for their buck in a season where Derek Stepan, Brad Richards and Rick Nash are playing below their typical levels of production.
Cam Talbot has been great, but there’s no such thing as a goalie controversy when Henrik Lundqvist recently received a seven-year, $59.5 million extension.
Let’s be clear. Rick Nash needs to raise his game. One goal in seven games isn’t cutting it, yet to call Nash “soft” and “invisible” and to the throw all the blame on Nash is neither fair nor accurate.
Electric winger Carl Hagelin is a player who head coach Alain Vigneault should be leaning on to pull the Rangers out of the muck.
For the Blueshirts, it’s all about feeling. How far can that good feeling take them? We’ll find out soon enough. The Rangers host the rival Penguins on Wednesday.
Alain Vigneault is lost at sea and his team is sinking like a stone. Now sitting below NHL .500 at 15-16-1, the Rangers need Glen Sather to throw their new head coach a life preserver.
It appears that Marc Staal and the Rangers have dodged a pretty significant bullet.
If you’re not a skilled team or a physical team, what are you? The answer is a blindingly mediocre team. Right now, the 15-15-1 Rangers are lacking any sliver of identity under head coach Alain Vigneault.
