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.
The Rangers were trounced 4-1 by the Capitals at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
Marc Staal is one of the league’s foremost shutdown defenseman. Unless the Rangers receive an unexpected stroke of luck, they will need to figure out how to cope with losing Staal for an extended period of time.
J.T. Miller clearly believes in his own abilities. That’s a very healthy asset for a 20-year-old trying to cement a place on an NHL roster.
With Henrik Lundqvist’s extension completed, Glen Sather is going to need to get very creative to supply the goaltender with the talent required for a legitimate Stanley Cup run.
According to a report, the deal is for seven years and $59.5 million. The new contract would make Lundqvist the highest-paid goalie in the league starting in the 2014-15 season.
Henrik Lundqvist will have to wait his turn. Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault announced that Cam Talbot will start in goal against the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.
The Rangers’ lack of a cutting edge is essentially forcing general manager Glen Sather to make a move.
