Changing approach to rewarding youth should worry Rangers

The New York Rangers ought to be concerned and not necessarily because of Derek Stepan’s current contract situation but because of the looming contract issues that currently sit just over the horizon. The NHL annual free agency frenzy was surprisingly (and encouragingly) muted this summer but don’t let that fool you. The leagues’ posse of […]

Details of the contract are unknown at the moment, but it is unlikely Halverson will turn pro until the 2016-2017 season. Halverson put up great numbers with […]

Rangers are better now, because of restraint

For those accustomed to watching the Rangers leap head first into free agency and enjoy the fall out, they will have been disappointed as July 1st turned to the 2nd. For the rest of us, yesterday would have been a pleasant change. Ironically, as Glen Sather officially relinquished his GM duties to Jeff Gorton, yesterday […]

Rangers Expected To Remain Quiet On UFA Day

Today’s contracts, tomorrow’s buyouts. Another July 1st is at hand today and in one hour from now, teams that have been talking to free agents over the last week will be allowed to put ink to the dotted line. The Rangers as we know aren’t in much of a position to go shopping on the open market as a number of their RFA’s still have to be taken care of. There remains a lingering...

New York Rangers: adjö, Carl Hagelin and Cam Talbot

Sigh. It finally happened. Cam Talbot has been traded by the New York Rangers to the Edmonton Oilers. No, not for Nail Yakupov or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Jordan Eberle or for any physical human being. The Rangers traded him for three picks in the draft, specifically numbers 57, 79, and 184. The Rangers then sent the 57th pick to Washington for two later round picks. Glen Sather screwed...

The New York Rangers have to be joking, right?

…What was that?! That wasn’t the plan! Old Glen pulled a fast one on us! All day there were wasted claims made by Darren Dreger and other legitimate sources that the New York Rangers were going to trade Cam Talbot either before the draft or during it, which would help maintain his trade value. All week we’ve been hearing that he would be traded sometime this week. Sure, the...

New York Rangers: So long, farewell Cam Talbot

The New York Rangers have confirmed that Cam Talbot will be traded either before the draft or during the draft, and understandably so. He has an extremely high trade value, as he proved that he is capable of being a starting goaltender, and there are several teams in the league (namely five) that are in tremendous need of one. His value will of course decline significantly if he’s...
