Rangers History

One of the most popular players to ever play on Broadway signed on for one more National Hockey League season on this date. Also, the Pittsburgh Penguins added a huge piece of their recent championship success. Messier Goes One More Round Mark Messier is one of the most popular players in New York Rangers history. His leadership and style of play were very easy to cheer for. Captaining the 1994 Stanley Cup championship team sure didn’t hurt his popularity either. Messier hoists the Stanley Cup (Photo by Bruce Bennett Studios/Getty Images) After signing with the Vancouver Canucks in 1997, Messier returned to the Rangers in 2000. On Sept. 5, 2003, Messier signed a one-year contract to return for his 25th and final NHL season. At age 43, Messier played in 76 games during the 2003-04 season and scored 18 goals and 43 points.

The Montreal Canadiens have made a bevy of moves on this date through the years. Also, the National Hockey League named a new president that brings in plenty of innovation and helps triple the league’s size. A Busy Day in Montreal The Canadiens have been a very active team on this date over the years. On Sept. 4, 1978, general manager Sam Pollack resigned and was replaced by Irving Grundman. Pollack spent 13 seasons at the helm of the Canadiens. The team made it to the playoffs in all 13 seasons and won an incredible nine championships in their 10 trips to the Stanley Cup Final. He was responsible for drafting the likes of Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, Steve Shutt, Bob Gainey, Mario Tremblay and Rod Langway. Exactly one year later, on Sept. 4, 1979, the Canadiens named former star Bernie Geoffrion their new head coach. He replaced the legendary Scotty Bowman, who had won four straight Stanley Cups and left to become the head coach and general of the Buffalo Sabres....

New York Rangers

The New York Rangers' main offseason problem comes in the form of filling the two roster gaps that could be left behind by Ryan Strome and Tony DeAngelo. Just like all 31 general managers in the NHL, general manager Jeff Gorton will be cap-strapped this offseason, which could lead to some intriguing moves come season's end. Related: Mike Gartner: Revisiting a True Hall of Fame Career As it stands right now, the Rangers' two most significant needs are a second-line center and fourth defenseman, the roles previously held by Strome and DeAngelo. Odds are the Rangers will try to keep one or both players, but there are other ways for New York to fill those voids. New York Rangers' Ryan Strome (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) As previously mentioned, the retention of Strome and DeAngelo is a route that can work if the contracts are reasonable. A second option is to bring in a second-line center and defenseman from the open market, whether that is via trade or free agency. The third...

Rangers Prospects

Four more National Hockey League prospects are planning on playing in Europe; two in Russia and two in Sweden. Also, an undrafted free agent gets a new contract after a successful first professional season. Finally, we take a look at the son of a two-time Stanley Cup champion.   Two Prospects Remain in Russia Two potential future rivals in the NHL’s Metropolitan Division are going to faceoff in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) this season. The rumors have been swirling around New York Rangers’ prospect Vitali Kravtsov for a few weeks now. On Sunday, HC Traktor officially announced that Kravtsov will be loaned to the KHL. The difference between Kravtsov and other prospects being loaned is that his is for the entire 2020-21 season, while most of the others are just until NHL training camps open in early December. Kravtsov performed well in his first AHL stint. (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Kravtsov was taken with the eighth overall pick in the 2018 NHL...

Missing Ryan Callahan

When Ryan Callahan departed from the New York Rangers in 2014, he took certain skills with him that the Rangers desperately need back. Don’t get me wrong, trading him at the time and not signing him to a massive contract that overpaid him was the right move but looking back on this past season,... May 19th, 2017
