Rangers win game one...

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
So time ticked down as I tore the hair out of my head, and somehow the Rangers eeked out a win in Atlanta. After playing well the first two periods, the Rangers lost their edge and the Thrashers dominated the third period. Still, throughout the entire game whenever the Blueshirts would extend their lead, it was only a matter of time before they let Atlanta get the goal b...

How Sweep It Is!!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
When it's been 10 years since you've won a playoff series you know your fan base is starved and that hunger was fed tonight as the Rangers finished off the Thrashers 4-2 at Madison Square Garden. The World's Most Famous Arena was buzzing with excitement as the blueshirts looked to finish off their first playoff sweep since that year most dear to all Ranger fans 1994. Th...
Sorry for the long length but this is a topic that has been bugging me a lot lately. I for one am sick of people making judgments on the New York Rangers captain Jaromir Jagr. Jagr came to New York with a rep most people will never let him live down and I am sick of it. No matter how this guy plays he’s either used as a scapegoat or referred to as a selfish quitter. ...
Did Jagr have a heart transplant or what? Maybe he was possessed! Maybe he sold his soul to the Devil. Whatever he did this guy was moving. Jagr has once again proven that when he wants it, he is almost unstoppable. This guy looked like a work horse the entire game. He back checked, forecheck, moved it well, passed, shot, and scored.He led this team by example. Showing why...

Give the Rangers Credit

Posted Thursday | Comments 2
I would like to give the Rangers credit here. They have found a way to bottle-up the explosive offense of the Sabres. Of course, most will debate the "explosivness" of the Sabres in this years playoffs. We all know it's there, look at the first game of both first and second round series! The Rangers have found a way to stop the Sabres in their tracks. If you watched all fo...
It is probably too soon to write how it feels after watching my Rangers team go down 5-4 today, but I don't think time will change my opinion of this team. All I can say is that I'm proud of the 2006-2007 New York Rangers. This team never gave up, not when most counted them out during the regular season and not today down 2 goals to the Sabres. Jaromir Jagr showe...
Last years run in the playoffs was cut short by a heart-stopping, gut-wrenching goal by co-captain Chris Drury of the Buffalo Sabres with 7.7 seconds left in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi's. Scott Gomez was part of the New Jersey Devils team that swept the Rangers two seasons ago in the first round of the playoffs. Now they're both with us. With multiple Stanley Cu...

Well, folks. Thursday is the day the Blueshirts officially open the doors to training camp, though reports are circulating that many players have in fact already begun "informal" workouts, both on and off the ice. Players who have already been spotted on the ice include: Brendan Shanahan, Chris Drury, Scott Gomez, Martin Straka, Henrik Lundqvist, Petr Prucha, Sean Ave...
Ok, first off, I think Hossa is a wash. I don't like him. He's a big guy and yes, he's good along the boards, but he's not as good as his brother, period. He's only hit 18 points in the NHL and 40 in the AHL. Dawes only played 8 games and got a goal in the big league, but absolutely dominated the AHL. Dawes is just going to get better. For the love of everything t...
So much emphasis was put on the free agent extravaganza over the summer, when the Rangers seemingly signed two players that would put them over the top. Scott Gomez had tormented the team from across the Hudson with the New Jersey Devils and of course Chris Drury who squashed Rangers Stanley Cup hopes with a last second goal in last year's playoff series against the Buffa...

More Rangers Ineptitude

Posted Monday | Comments 2
Through the first six games of the season, the Rangers had scored 13 goals while surrendering only 15, which is a stark contrast from the prior year, when in the same amount of contests, the team had scored 25 goals and given up 25. Just like 2006-07, the Rangers scored the same of goals - zero - in Game Seven, but this it was against Manny Fernandez, who had given up 10 g...

Rangers First Report Card

I know it’s still early for any serious evaluations and assessments and for that the Rangers should consider themselves lucky they still have some time to turn things around. However, I’ve decided to give brief evaluations on each of the Rangers players after every ten games throughout the year and track the team’s progress. So here is a brief comment on each playe...
Just teasing... He isn't known for his playmaking, but he had some great assists last night. That Shanny goal was purty. He's also great on the PK, and he backchecks very well. He's the defensive positive of Ortmeyer, but he can actually stick handle. He's had some bad luck offensively. He was robbed twice by Brodeur, and I think he was also open-net robbed agains...

The Rangers recorded their fourth straight win by beating the Flyers by a score of 2-0. Last week's "player of the week", Henrik Lundqvist recorded his fourth shutout in 14 games this season and helped the Rangers improve to 7-6-1 on the season.

We have definitely been improving. The Rangers needed this homestand to get a confidence boost.

Enough of the rumors of the Rangers trading Jaromir Jagr. Enough of the rumors that the Big Guy isn't happen without Nylander as his pivot. Enough with the rumors of JJ being disinterested and a diva on the ice. What I want to know is why would the Rangers even think of trading someone in the cap era that only counts $4.5 mill against their cap? What I want to know i...
Fact: In their previous 3 matchups, the Rangers managed only 4 goals against the rival Islanders. They lost all 3 games. Fact: In their two meetings this season. the Rangers got 1 goals against Martin Gerber and the Ottawa Senators. They lost both. Fact: The Rangers offense was last in the league in goals scored. There were more than a few rumblings about the sleepin...
Jaromir Jagr is.. happy.. and that's a great thing for the Rangers. It was evident that he missed Nylander up until Straka got back. Last year, it was Straka - Nylander - Jagr on our first line. A year prior to that, it was Rucinsky (Straka later in the season) - Nylander - Jagr. Both of these lines had great chemistry, but I think that Straka had a bigger impact than N...
They could not have made it more clear had they announced it in the middle of Times Square. It has been that apparant from the play of the Rangers during this three game road trip, and a trip is was, that this team cannot and will not play consistantly good hockey. They will find a way to lose ever game, even to lowly Edmonton. After coming off of a solid three game winnin...
[b]Special teams[/b] Last night, we were 0-6 or 0-7 on the Power Play. In this new NHL, that I will refer to as zero contact figure skating, special teams are key.

Ten Burning Questions

-Everyone goes out of their way to credit Anaheim's turnaround to the return of [b]Scott Niedermayer[/b]. Why has no one pinned their lousy start on the fact he sat home for the first 20-some games? -Speaking of which, since veteran players can apparently take off a ton of games at the start of the year, why all the uproar about going to 84 games? -Which all-star(s) ...
In an effort to answer that, I found the best thing to do is not to try at all. It IS for all intents and purposes probably the most frustrating season in recent memory. Here's the facts- you have a world-class netminder, 2 sure fire hall of famers up front(jags and shanny), 2 very good/execellent centers (dru and gomer) the biggest pest in the league (avery), the total...
As the trade deadline approaches, Rangers fans begin to wonder about what Glen Sather will do. Will he pick up a big player? Will he dump Malik or Mara? The biggest question mark is Jaromir Jagr. He doesn't seem to have much in the tank or much durability in the rear fender. He has scored only 16 goals and 38 assists in 63 games and does not seem prone to break out of his ...
I know many Rangers fans are disappointed with Glenn Sather’s roster moves, or lack thereof, yesterday. The team went into the deadline with two distinct needs; a puck moving defensemen to quarterback their struggling power play and a crease clearing defensemen to bring character and added toughness to their current inexperienced crop of blue liners. Looking at what the...

Sidney Crosby on full display in the Conference Semifinals versus the New York Rangers. For all the talent Crosby shows, I just can't respect him like I respected a Gretzky.

Tough way to go out if you're a Ranger's fan. After a rough start and numerous highs and lows over the course of the season, the team looked good heading into the playoffs, just like last year.

For anybody who grew up in the hockey world ...
The popular mindset during this offseason is to be skeptical of the moves, or lackthereof, made by Glen Sather and the New York Rangers. The Rangers were a solid team that had made the playoffs for three straight years while maintaining a core of veteran players.

Jaromir Jagr

Whenever I hear someone mention the name Jaromir Jagr with regard to the Penguins, one of two images pops into my head: Most of the time it's the 1992 Stanley Cup Final game 1 goal he scored against the Chicago Blackhawks. The one where he weaved his way through players from the half wall to the net and scored on Eddie Belfour. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha...

I look at the recent signing of Brooks Laich to a 6 year, $27M contract by the Washington Capitals as mo...
