The Rangers’ lack of a cutting edge is essentially forcing general manager Glen Sather to make a move.
The Rangers sent a resounding message Wednesday night, not only to one of the best teams in the NHL, but also to their own general manager, Glen Sather: Leave us be. We’ll get it.
Perhaps a package of Girardi, Miller, a minor-league forward and a combination of draft picks could be enough to sway MacTavish into parting with Yakupov.
Rangers assign forward Darroll Powe and goaltender Jason Missiaen to Hartford.
Let’s be clear. What the Rangers are going through isn’t an effort issue. They’re struggling to understand Vigneault’s concept of uptempo hockey that also requires sound positioning.
The Rangers defeated the Los Angeles Kings, 3-1, on Monday night at Staples Center. Richards was front and center in Vigneault’s first victory as head coach of the Blueshirts as he scored two of three Rangers goals.
The message from the New York Rangers’ bench might not be any different from in years past. The tone in which it is delivered most likely will be.
There’s zero chance that Glen Sather’s bully tactics will accelerate stalled talks with restricted free-agent center Derek Stepan.
There should be no dancing or partying as the New York Rangers continue with their preseason. A win over the Philadelphia Flyers with Alain Vigneault is nice, but there’s nothing to crow about.
Dominic Moore recently spoke of the mutual delight shared by himself and Henrik Lundqvist to be back together after their experiences bonding as Rangers rookies back in 2005-06.
Derek Stepan does not have a leg to stand on, and let’s be honest, the Rangers have held the power cards throughout the summer.
There isn’t any reason why Rangers GM Glen Sather should play with fire and potentially expose Henrik Lundqvist to free agency in 2014.
Rangers fans don’t have anything to worry about when it comes to two of their key pieces in Lundqvist and Stepan. It’s only a matter of time before their new deals get done.
New York Rangers President and general manager Glen Sather announced the re-signing of forward Mats Zuccarello on Tuesday.
With the start of free agency looming on Friday, the Rangers should be looking to shed salary in order to get in on the action.
