As the Board of Governors meetings approach, a large gathering of general managers = new, juicy trade rumors. The biggest one seems to be the possibility that the Rangers might land Brad Richards from the cash-strapped Stars before the trade deadline.

Imagine, for a second, that you get some great tickets to a sporting event – hockey or otherwise. You decide to give the other team a clever tongue-lashing, perhaps thanks to a healthy dosage of booze or a long day at the office. It seems like a light hearted good time – after all, isn’t…

The prognosis is not good for either Chris Drury or Marian Gaborik after suffering injuries tonight against Toronto, but it may be worse for Vinny Prospal. It was a bad night to be an injured Ranger.

The preseason for the New York Rangers has provided a fair bit of intrigue. From the Wade Redden-to-Hartford situation, to captain Chris Drury breaking his finger, Vinny Prospal having knee issues, to today’s action on waivers with Tim Kennedy and Todd White there’s been more than enough drama for everyone in the organization and their…

Last season: (38-33-11, 87 points, 4th in Atlantic Division, 9th in Eastern Conference) The Rangers fell a shootout win short of making the playoffs then watched as the Philadelphia Flyers made it all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. Ouch. The team depended a lot on young players, Marian Gaborik and Henrik Lundqvist and…

To the surprise of virtually no one, New York Rangers recently waived defenseman Wade Redden has cleared waivers and will be sent to AHL camp with the Hartford Wolfpack.

One of the stranger stories that took place during last night’s surprisingly jam-packed night of interesting preseason action came during a heated exchange between Ilya Kovalchuk of the New Jersey Devils and Sean Avery of the New York Rangers. Some people – including Rangers GM Glen Sather – wondered if Kovalchuk made a “cutthroat” motion…

Now that the Rangers have cast defenseman Wade Redden aside on waivers with the intent of sending him to the AHL to rid themselves of his $6.5 million cap hit, the Rangers will have to figure out who, exactly, is going to take his spot along the blue line.

Being a head coach in professional sports is often a risky proposition but the NHL is a particularly cruel place for a bench boss.
