    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.

    gyi0062236399-bradrichards

    Being the top point man on the Dallas Stars gives Brad Richards a tough job of having to do his part in keeping the tough, but young, Stars afloat in the tough Western Conference. With Richards in the final year of his contract, he’s focused on doing what he can to show that he continues…

    Hearing Sean Avery get a pat on the back from Alex Burrows for punching Ladislav Smid should be the postscript you were looking for about yesterday’s Rangers-Oilers brouhaha.

    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.

    Chris Drury

    Rangers captain Chris Drury will return to the lineup on Friday and be rewarded with a spot on the first line. This shouldn’t be shocking news, but in Rangers country it’s a big deal.

  10. Chris Drury could return to Rangers lineup by Friday

    Oct 11, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Chris Drury

    The Rangers have gotten off to a good start just a game into their season, but they could be getting their captain Chris Drury back by the end of the week. Larry Brooks of the New York Post got word from Rangers coach John Tortorella that Drury could very well rejoin the team by Friday.…

  11. Rangers rookie Derek Stepan hoping to stick around NHL for a while

    Oct 5, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    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…

  12. Today's waiver wire madness: Isles claim Grabner, Lightning snag Ritola

    Oct 5, 2010, 1:33 PM EDT

    After the last few days of waiver wire action went quietly with players being placed on waivers and then unclaimed to be sent to the minors, today brought some action. Yesterday saw the Panthers put Michael Grabner on waivers for the purpose of sending him to Rochester in the AHL. He won’t be heading to…

  13. 2010-11 NHL season preview: New York Rangers

    Sep 28, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    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…

  14. Rangers' Wade Redden clears waivers, heads to AHL

    Sep 27, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    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. With that, Redden’s $6.5 million cap hit disappears to the AHL and the race for the spot on the Rangers blue line is on. With the…

  15. Ilya Kovalchuk didn't make a 'cutthroat' motion toward Sean Avery

    Sep 26, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    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…

  16. Analyzing the Rangers blue line with Wade Redden out of the picture

    Sep 25, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    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. Redden’s production last year wasn’t outstanding…

  17. Training Camp Battles: Atlantic Division

    Sep 18, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    With training camps starting late this week or early next, we at Pro Hockey Talk couldn’t help but wonder: what are the biggest position battles going in? To give you the most specific answers possible, we asked team bloggers to give their take. After all, these men and women follow their teams almost as much…

  18. Which coaches are in the greatest danger of being fired?

    Sep 3, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Being a head coach in professional sports is often a risky proposition but the NHL is a particularly cruel place for a bench boss. Aside from outright anomalies in Buffalo (Lindy Ruff) and Nashville (Barry Trotz), hockey coaches experience about as much job security as college football coaches show loyalty. ESPN’s Scott Burnside released his…

  19. Report: Rangers to sign free agent forward Tim Kennedy

    Aug 30, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    If reports are to be believed, WKBW out of Buffalo is reporting that free agent forward Tim Kennedy, who’s been searching for a new team after being waived by the Buffalo Sabres, is going to sign a contract with the New York Rangers. If he signs with the Rangers, he’ll provide some improved forward depth…

  20. The Rangers salary problems with Wade Redden and Marc Staal

    Comments Off on The Rangers salary problems with Wade Redden and Marc Staal

    This summer for the New York Rangers has been a relatively quiet one. With Glen Sather in charge and always in the mix on free agents and trades, the lack of big moves out of Manhattan for a team that missed the playoffs last year is a bit curious. The team brought back Vinny Prospal…

  21. Nikolai Zherdev claims that he is now a 'two-way player'; Is water no longer wet?

    Comments Off on Nikolai Zherdev claims that he is now a 'two-way player'; Is water no longer wet?

    During a conference call today, Nikolai Zherdev referred to himself as a “two-way player.” In other news from Bizarro Land, I condemn puns, hate bacon and find Madonna interesting. All joking aside, the talented Russian winger claims that he’s improved in one of the areas that once made Ken Hitchcock and John Tortorella pitch fits.…

  22. Report: Nikolai Zherdev to return from Russia, sign with Flyers

    Jul 7, 2010, 7:20 PM EDT

    While fans wait to hear about what one Russian superstar will do about his future in the NHL (or KHL), word came out today that one enigmatic Russian scorer is close to returning to the NHL after spending a year away in Russia. Former first round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets and ex-New York…

    Comments Off on Prospect Ryan McDonagh signs with Rangers, decisions await on Staal and Girardi

    The New York Rangers are about to make life interesting on both head coach John Tortorella and general manager Glen Sather. The Rangers have signed prospect defenseman Ryan McDonagh and while that’s a great thing overall for the Rangers it puts them in a curious position, one which Glen Sather probably doesn’t mind. The Rangers…

  24. There was a bidding war for Derek Boogaard. Seriously.

    Jul 4, 2010, 4:46 PM EDT

    Derek Boogaard’s job in the NHL is a simple-to-explain yet difficult-to-do job. He’s out there to intimidate opponents, fight other enforcers and generally be a menace to everyone on the ice. He’s not a goal scorer by any means (he hasn’t scored a goal since his rookie season in 2005-2006 and has a 222 game…

  25. Report: Rangers prospect Ryan McDonagh set to leave Wisconsin, join the club

    Jul 4, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    Comments Off on Report: Rangers prospect Ryan McDonagh set to leave Wisconsin, join the club

    While Glen Sather continues to play hardball with Rangers fans by giving enforcer Derek Boogaard a four-year contract while not getting a contract settled with restricted free agent defenseman Marc Staal, he is making sure to take care of the growing stable of talented youth in Manhattan. Of course, if you’re a fan of the…
