RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Rangers and NHLPA donate to support hockey writer Ira Podell

Rangers pass on Christian Ehrhoff

Despite rumors that the Rangers would put in a claim for waived Kings defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, he cleared waivers this afternoon. Ehrhoff is on a one-year deal worth $1.5 million, and has a line of 2-9-11 in 40 games this season. As a cheap and effective defenseman for an injury riddled club, Ehrhoff seemed like […] The post Rangers pass on Christian Ehrhoff appeared first...

Henrik Lundqvist is ageless

Yesterday we discussed the long career of Martin Brodeur and all he did for the New Jersey Devils. Henrik Lundqvist is past the age that goalies typically start to decline, but he still keeps churning out good games (like last night when he shut out the Penguins), which turn into good seasons. He hasn’t been able to etch his name in the Cup like Brodeur has three times, but Lundqvist...

Tweet of the Moment 2/10/16

Period number two is underway..it's 1-0 #NYR — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 11, 2016 Obviously, this is an extra boring tweet. In that regard, it is unfathomable to me that there are 24 retweets. This must have something to do with the new algorithm.

Yandle Now Top Dman On Trade Market

A pair moves that shook the NHL on Monday and Tuesday has cast a spotlight on the Rangers and specifically Keith Yandle as the days towards the February 29th trade deadline begin wind down. On Monday, Dustin Byfuglien signed a five year, $38 million extension with the Winnipeg Jets. On one hand, that contract could set a benchmark with Yandle’s next contract, but you also may have...

Rising Rangers still missing spark plugs

The Rangers’ defensive lapses and disappointing individual performances have been discussed again and again, but one surprising issue this season has been the frequency with which the team hits the ice with very little energy. We saw so few of those pure stinker games in recent years under first John Tortorella and then Alain Vigneault, but […] The post Rising Rangers still...

Should the Dustin Byfuglien deal change the Rangers’ approach with Keith Yandle?

Through the end of January, it seemed to be a sure bet that the Rangers were going to trade Keith Yandle. The club has Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal locked into long-term deals and have Brady Skjei –their 2012 1st round pick– knocking at the door. That’s a pretty crowded left side. Getting the most […] The post Should the Dustin Byfuglien deal change the Rangers’ approach...

The New York Rangers must retain Keith Yandle

After Saturday’s epic comeback win down 12 seconds in the third, it’s even more clear that the New York Rangers need to do everything they can to get Keith Yandle re-signed. The guy has been the Rangers’ best offensive defenseman and it’s not even close. He’s leading the entire team in assists, is fifth on the team in points, and is first on the team in points by defensemen...

McDonagh Out With Concussion

#NYR Ryan McDonagh will be out tonight due to a concussion suffered on Saturday in Philadelphia. — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 8, 2016 Embellishment? Stay classy Philly scribes. Yet another injury on the blueline the Rangers can ill afford to take. The team hasn’t made any call-ups yet although this might be a good time to give Brady Skjei another go. If Mac is...

Rangers fan honors Mark Messier, remembers 9/11 in one tattoo (pic)

In a kind of tattoo that just begs the question, “What exactly was your motivation?”, a New York Rangers fan simultaneously — and strangely — paid tribute to the iconic Mark Messier and the tragic events of 9/11 in one bizarre piece of body art. There's a lot to unpack here. pic.twitter.com/HidEq2bPFl — mike toole (@miketoole) February 3, 2016   Um, okay. Somehow...

About Klein Being Out Indefinitely…

Interesting couple takeaways from the Rangers skate today. First off, we reported yesterday that the Klein would be out “indefinitely.” Well indefinitely lasted for about 24 hours… Uh Kevin Klein is on the ice in a regular defenseman’s practice jersey. Rangers said yesterday out indefinitely with fractured right thumb — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) February 4, 2016 ...

The New York Rangers are struggling. Their season has gone completely downhill, considering the fact that last year, this team made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals and even led the league as the Presidents’ Trophy winners. The team needs help at the Feb. 29 deadline. It is obviously, painfully so. Therefore, they need to make some changes to the lineup...

Alain Vigneault: Kevin Hayes 'not good enough'

The New York Rangers have gone 3-6-1 over their last 10 games, and head coach Alain Vigneault was not afraid to single out a certain player for the team's struggles.That player: forward Kevin Hayes."I think we all have our tipping points, and I think Kevin has had an extra-long leash, especially considering [center Derek Stepan] was out for quite some time," Vigneault said in regard...
