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.
Mark Messier announced Thursday in a statement that he is resigning from the Rangers organization.
First, it was the Philadelphia Flyers announcing Briere’s buyout, then the Lightning sending Lecavalier packing. Are the Rangers ready to break up with Brad Richards?
Vigneault is ready to breathe fresh life into the Rangers. It’s going to be a new era of exciting, offensively-expressive hockey now that Vigneault is replacing John Tortorella behind the Blueshirts’ bench.
Just over four weeks after he was fired by the Vancouver Canucks, Vigneault took over as coach of the New York Rangers on Friday — replacing the blustery John Tortorella three weeks after his dismissal.
“I don’t really know what Mark is going to do,” general manager Glen Sather told the New York Post. “He was very disappointed when I called to tell him that we were going to hire Alain.”
Vigneault may not be a breath of fresh air, but he’s not the restrictive leader that Tortorella was and that’s good news for the Rangers.
Once hired, Alain Vigneault will find success in New York by being everything that John Tortorella wasn’t.
