If the Rangers are to return to the Stanley Cup Final, head coach Alain Vigneault will have to work some more magic.
Newly signed Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle isn’t feeling the pressure ahead of the latest — and perhaps greatest — challenge of his impressive career.
Even considering his age and slower stride, Boyle is still a rare commodity in this league given his excellence on the power play.
Defenseman Dan Boyle agreed to terms with the Rangers on Tuesday just after the start of NHL free agency. According to the New York Post, the contract is for $9 million over two years.
Rangers fans are dreading what free agency has in store. Things changed quickly for the Blueshirts on Friday when the NHL announced that the 2014-15 salary cap maximum will be $69 million.
The Islanders tried, but it might end up being the Rangers who seal the deal.
For most teams, the offseason begins when the Stanley Cup Final ends. The New York Islanders, however, are not like most teams. For better or for worse, their situation is unique, something general manager Garth Snow is fully aware of.
Islanders general manager Garth Snow continued his proactive approach to the offseason on Thursday, sending a conditional fifth round pick in the 2015 draft to the San Jose Sharks for the rights to veteran defenseman Dan Boyle.
It’s imperative that Rangers GM Glen Sather doesn’t make a reactionary trade after the Penguins acquire Jarome Iginla.
Dan Boyle scored the tying goal on a second-period power play and added the shootout clincher in the San Jose Sharks’ 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
