New York Rangers
Newly signed Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle isn’t feeling the pressure ahead of the latest — and perhaps greatest — challenge of his impressive career.
NHL free agency frenzy kicked off Tuesday, and there was enough money thrown around to end world hunger. But sometimes, general managers and owners act irresponsibly with their wallets.
Bourque has two career goals and eight points in 51 NHL games over parts of four seasons with Boston, Pittsburgh and Washington.
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 Rangers now have five picks in the draft: one in the second round (59th overall), two in the third round (85th and 89th), one in the fourth round (119th), and one in the fifth round (122nd).
It may not look like it when you don’t see their name in the first round of the draft, but this is a vital offseason for the Rangers. They have a chance to seize control in the Eastern Conference and become its best and most consistent team.
Brad Richards playing on Long Island? It’s possible.
The Islanders tried, but it might end up being the Rangers who seal the deal.
Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said Ryan Callahan is a “fierce competitor and outstanding leader who fits very well with our team.”
Sometimes, people are meant to be in a certain place. That was the case for Moore. Coming back to New York brought healing after he had gone through hell.
Seven years after Sidney Crosby won his first Hart Trophy, the Pittsburgh captain has been recognized as the NHL’s best once again.
Losing Stralman and Boyle would be jagged pills to swallow, but freeing up cap space to sign a center of Stastny’s caliber is the Rangers’ No. 1 need.
The 34-year-old Richards was expected to be a casualty, along with his $6.67-million cap hit, once the Rangers’ season ended.
