New York Rangers
Speaking to WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Wednesday, Ryan Callahan said the hang-up between his agents and Rangers general manager Glen Sather seemed to hinge on just a few million dollars.
The Rangers at least have some hope with Alain Vigneault behind the bench. The Canucks have none of that with John Tortorella, whose head coaching career is almost certainly in its final weeks.
Every time Henrik Lundqvist pulls on his goalie mask, he’s carrying the hopes and dreams of Rangers fans on his back.
Henrik Lundqvist earned his 300th NHL victory and 49th career shutout in the New York Rangers’ 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.
As the Rangers prepare for their second game following the Martin St. Louis-Ryan Callahan megatrade, head coach Alain Vigneault wants his team to quickly move past any lingering side effects.
It was a move the Rangers had to make. Hockey royalty has arrived at Madison Square Garden in the form of ageless 38-year-old winger Martin St. Louis.
With hockey at the forefront we had ourselves a happy Boomer, which is always a good thing.
Ryan Callahan couldn’t find common ground on a new contract with the Rangers, and now he’s bound for Tampa Bay.
They made a flashy move by bringing in St. Louis, but the Rangers are not in a position to contend for the Stanley Cup this year.
Kevin Klein is hoping that Callahan remains in New York, but understands why his former OHL teammate is playing hardball with the Rangers on a new contract.
At this point it’s about both sides making concessions. As the clock ticks toward Wednesday’s 3 p.m. NHL trade deadline, the Rangers and captain Ryan Callahan at least appear to be interested in working something out.
What motivates Ryan Callahan more? Maximum dollars or the opportunity to remain an integral component of a Rangers team that has every chance of competing for the Stanley Cup in the present and coming years?
The Rangers’ next game is Wednesday against Toronto, hours after the NHL’s trading deadline — and whether Ryan Callahan is still with the team at that point is anyone’s guess.
Tuukka Rask made 19 saves in a one-sided first period, and defenseman Dougie Hamilton had a goal and two assists to lift the Boston Bruins to a 6-3 victory over the Rangers on Sunday night and their first season-sweep of New York in 31 years.
Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday.
