GREENBURGH, N.Y (AP) The New York Rangers have waived defenseman Raphael Diaz and forward Jayson Megna in reducing their roster to 23 players. The team announced the moves on their website Friday.

Rangers waive Diaz, Megna

The Rangers have cut the roster to 23 players, waiving defenseman Raphael Diaz and forward Jayson Megna. Megna was always one of the expected cuts, and I guess waiving Diaz shouldn’t be that much of a surprise. Dylan McIlrath outplayed him in camp, and it was really a decision between them, despite our optimistic hopes […]

New York Rangers: Lindberg has earned a shot

The New York Rangers have finished the preseason and now have the next five days to come up with a starting lineup that is ready to face off against the Chicago Blackhawks. The majority of the roster was already set, so it was simply a matter of filling the holes of the third and fourth lines with a little competition in the preseason for those spots. So far, there’s only one line...

Rangers Backup Goalie Situation

View image | By Michael Monti It’s a known fact that Henrik Lundqvist will be the mainstay in net for the New York Rangers. In his 10-year NHL career Lundqvist has played in 620 games, winning 339, with 55 shutouts, a save percentage of .921 and a goals against average of 2.26. So, it will be hard for anyone to beat him out of his starting role. The question...

Aside from cuts, plenty of roster decisions looming

The Rangers will be making their final round of cuts by Friday, and it is expected that the roster will be down to 23 players by that point. While the only apparently certainty is that Jayson Megna will be cut, there are plenty of other options for the Rangers. They can make a trade or […]

Kreider: I’d love to play for Torts at World Cup

Last week, when John Tortorella was named as Team USA’s coach for the World Cup, it immediately raised eyebrows across the NHL and especially here in New York. Given that Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh were the Ranger representatives for the Americans in the Olympics last season, it should be expected that the pair will return for the World Cup next year. But one Ranger, Chris...

New York Rangers: Skjei shouldn’t have been cut yet

The New York Rangers have continued cutting down their roster, including highly-touted defensive prospect Brady Skjei. He, Dylan Mcilrath and Raphael Diaz have been competing for the seventh defenseman spot, and now it’s down to just Mcilrath and Diaz. He couldn’t have been because of his play, as he was incredibly solid in the days that he was with the team. He looked incredibly...

This week in stupid: The idea that Emerson Etem is not making the Rangers

Emerson Etem is making the Rangers. He will not be sent to Hartford and be exposed to waivers, where he will surely be claimed. The Rangers will not do so in order to keep Tanner Glass. This idea is incredibly stupid, but somehow a few Rangers beat writers all appear to have come to the conclusion continue reading...

New York Rangers: Who Will Make the Roster? Pt 2

A couple of more pre-season games have gone down, and some additional (unsurprising) cuts have been made to the roster. This is a continuation of my Wednesday column New York Rangers: Who Will Make the Roster? Pt 1 and will be focused on the offense this time. There are several players who are going to be on the opening game roster no matter what; incumbents who played significant...

Will the Rangers really cut Tanner Glass?!

I’ll believe it when I see it. Rumblings and grumblings from New York Rangers training camp suggest that Tanner Glass’ spot with the 2015-2016 Rangers is in jeopardy. Though the reason is logical –  to anyone with a pulse not named Alain Vigneault – it’s hard to imagine the Rangers and Vigneault making a linear continue reading...

Rangers' forward Chris Kreider is apparently very famous in the K-pop world

If New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider is not already a fan of K-pop, perhaps now is the time for him to expand his music horizons. K-pop group DIA recently published a video of a performance at the Gyeongju Hallyu Dream Concert on Sept. 20, and the seven-piece girl group all wore replica New York Rangers home jerseys for the performance. Six of the singers selected Kreider jerseys...
