Cap considerations, I imagine. After signing Hayes, and still needing to sign John Moore (or someone else for 6th D) they have to be right up against the cap

@blueshirtscorner Well, from the way you speak, you know more than anyone currently in the organization, so why don't you send a resume for the GM's job to James Dolan? Better yet, send one for janitor.

@MikeBlue If the Rangers are so bad, why don't you go root for the Devils, or better yet, the Islanders?
The highest the Canadian dollar has been compared to the U.S. dollar in the past four years is about $0.98 Canadian = $1.00 U.S. Currently, the actual exchange rate is $1.09 Canadian per $1.00 U.S. Sounds like someone ripped you off really bad.

Funny, we've beaten the 'Hawks twice, and they were "sturdy enough for the playoff run". They're the top scoring team in the league, and we shut them down, so maybe Girardi's not "a shell of his former self". in other words, maybe you should rethink this.

Miller has yet to prove that he can "make plays" in the NHL. He's shown potential, yes, but he's yet to break out.

What does it matter who gets the credit? The TEAM won, and that's what counts.
Here's a thought. Callahan to Edmonton for young players, prospects, draft picks. What do you think?
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Callahan Back on Power Play; Talbot to Start Tonight
I started taking my daughter to Ranger games when she was about 6. By the time she was eight, she was roaming the promenade alone (or so she thought. I was always about 10 feet behind her). She loved it all, the game, the excitement, the crowd reactions, and has remained a hockey fan to this day, 30 years later.
Gotta love the optimism!

The response to the media is interesting, to say the least. Similar to Torts? Hmmm … the common denominator is the media and their questions. Maybe too many dumb and repetitious questions will get to any coach?

I used to have season tickets, but I just can't afford to pay for them anymore. It's a business, and as long as the corporations and the people with cash to burn are willing to pay the price, the rest of us aren't going to be able to get tickets.

No where in any of these discussions have I heard anything about what Lundqvist wants, just guesses and opinions. Maybe this is a lot less complicated than we think it is.

@Brandon Boyle I can't see bringing up Kristo yet, especially when we have this other guy, name of Rick Nash, getting close to returning. Let BP be a place holder till Nash is ready, then see if we can make a trade, even if all we get is a draft pick.

Lindberg was MVP in the SEL playoffs. I think that gets him a real good shot at an Olympic spot.
1 year, 2 months ago on The Olympics Are Coming! The Olympics Are Coming!
@FREE LINDBERG @Herman_NYRBlog depends on which team signs him to an offer sheet. Knowing that they would need at least 7M per year in cap space indicates a lower tier team, thus a better draft pick
1 year, 2 months ago on Could Not Buying Out Richards Cause Rangers to Lose McDonagh?
@lennynyr Brassard has played a total of 25 games with the Rangers. Somehow, I don't think we should be too worried about his opinions yet.
1 year, 2 months ago on RUMOR: Scott Arniel To Be Named Assistant Coach
@lennynyr Brassard isn't the second coming of Gretzky. He looked pretty good over a short period of time with New York, but he still has to prove he can sustain it, and he still has to show that he's not the prima donna he used to be.
@Richard Falconer The big question is what does he do if the Coyotes are relocated, say to Quebec City or Seattle? Will he still want to stay with the team?

@Snot-Bubbler Brooks might be considered a "good writer", if you think a writer who insists on thinking that (a) he's part of the story, and (b) he knows more about the subject than the person he's interviewing, is a good writer.
1 year, 3 months ago on Covering John Tortorella Was Not A Nightmare For Everyone
@rangersfan92 If they're going to trade Henrik, they have to do it soon. They can't let his contract run out, and they'll probably get more from him if they trade him early so the new team gets him for a full year. That being said, I want to see him finish his career in New York. Trading him is essentially giving up on the season.
1 year, 3 months ago on Is Messier a Serious Candidate to Coach This Team?
Raissman is always trying to make something out of nothing (I read the Daily News). The only time he's happy is if the coach says everything is his fault and that the interviewer has been asking only impartial and intelligent questions. Doesn't matter which sport, which coach, which interviewer, or what the question was.

@calithirteen @stevenabsmith What did Maloney have to do with anything? He's been in Phoenix since 2007.
1 year, 4 months ago on You Still Want Torts Fired?
@calithirteen so it's his fault when the team doesn't do as well as you think they should (this year), but he get's no credit when they're the best team in the east (lat year)?. That doesn't work for me.
@scrangersfan Ah, there's nothing better than having some belief in your team, is there?

One big difference between Staal and Berard. Berard's eye was totally destroyed, so he actually only had one eye.

Now that they've opened up at least one roster spot, why not bring him up and see how he does? It can't hurt, IMHO

He's 36 years old! The last thing we need is to do is to tie up cap money in another player at the end of his career.

Kreider's been looking good on the power play and pk while he's been at Hartford. Would love to see him on both with the Rangers.

Very well put. For the benefit of all the Ranger fans, just take a look at the Giants over the past 5 years. Three crappy seasons, for sure, but also two Super Bowl wins. It goes up, and it goes down, without any clear reason. The Rangers strike me as much the same sort of team. Capable of laying a huge egg at times, but also capable of rising up and being spectacular.

This may just be the sleaziest thing that Bettman has ever been involved in, and there have been plenty! If anything will completely turn the fans against the league, and toward the players, it's pulling a cheap, vindictive, stunt like this.

@GiveGartneraCup No, YOU are a "what have you done for me lately" fan. Those of us who are true fans want to see a solid team that can contend for years, instead of one that has a good year, then tanks for the next five.
