Vesey's Role With Rangers Could Be in Danger

Vesey's Role With Rangers Could Be in Danger

September 30th, 2018 With cautious optimism for the future and tempered excitement over a now-finalized New York Rangers roster that will show the first signs of the front office's youth movement, Jimmy Vesey has largely been forgotten during the preseason. Unfortunately for Vesey, it's his own fault. Given the...

Chytil & Andersson - The Rangers' Future is Here

September 28th, 2018 There's no doubt anymore that the theme of the New York Rangers' rebuild is patience. The club is determined not to force-feed the NHL to its gaggle of young prospects, with many of them set to play in the minors or European leagues in 2018-19. The measured approach is one that team management...

Eastern Conference foes, the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers have both been around a long time. In fact, the two teams have met 611 times with the Maple Leafs holding the edge - a record of 286-221-95-9, or a .553 point percentage. While it’s hard to call these two teams rivals nowadays, the two teams can be connected through their trade history over the years. That being said, the Maple Leafs and Rangers haven’t engaged in a deal since early in 2011 - one we’ll get to as we take a closer look at the five most recent trades between these two franchises. Mediocrity for John Mitchell It was back on Feb. 28, 2011, when the Rangers and Maple Leafs last signed off on a trade with each other. The Leafs traded forward John Mitchell to the Rangers for a 2012 seventh-round pick. Mitchell had debuted with the Maple Leafs in 2008-09 as a 24-year-old and played in 159 regular season games for the team over parts of three seasons, but the team didn’t have space for him...

The Boston Bruins have traded veteran defender Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers in exchange for Steve Kampfer, a fourth-round draft pick in 2019 as well as a conditional seventh-round pick in 2019. This ends a nine-season stint with the Bruins for McQuaid who made his NHL debut back in 2009-10 with the club. In 462 games, McQuaid would score only 13 goals and 66 points with his career-high in goals and points coming in 2010-11 when he would score three goals and 15 points before winning the Stanley Cup. While McQuaid wasn't ever going to light up the score sheet or make an impact on the offensive side of the puck, it was his hard work, leadership and all-around warrior-mentality that made him such an integral part of the Bruins team. McQuaid's Role was Key for the Bruins It's easy to look at the modern-day NHL and say that there's no room for grit, ferocity, fighting or the like. While there's a legitimate case to...

NHL Rumors

In today's rumor rundown, the New York Rangers will stand pat when it comes to veteran additions, the Sharks might be feeling the pressure after the Vegas Golden Knights acquired Max Pacioretty and the Flyers have some choices to make with so many injuries heading into the regular season. Rangers Won't Add PTO Veterans Larry Brooks of the New York Post is reporting the Rangers aren’t expected to bring in any veterans on training camp tryouts. With plenty of strong options still available on PTO deals, New York is expected to stick with their youth movement and open up opportunities for several key prospects to contend for roster spots. The belief is that adding veterans would only clutter things up. Among the youngsters to watch are first round centers Lias Andersson and Filip Chytil. The one thing that might slow their introduction into the NHL is that Rangers' GM Jeff Gorton told Brooks that the team plan is to keep both players at center. New York has some depth down...

New York Rangers

Since the trade deadline, the New York Rangers have faced numerous questions: Who's staying? Who’s leaving? How will the team look after the draft lottery? How will a new coaching staff flip the script and turn the franchise around? Over the course of the offseason, many of these questions have been answered. Veterans such as Ryan McDonagh and Rick Nash have been ushered out. Henrik Lundqvist has stated unequivocally that he intends to stay with the club. The team made history through the draft, selecting three players in the first round for the first time in franchise history. The new coaching staff has a proven track record, not to mention past relationships with multiple players on the roster. While the puck has yet to be dropped on the 2018-19 season, fans can breathe a small sigh of relief. After so much uncertainty the team has finally begun to take shape. However, there is one question that is still being asked: Who will be the next captain? Or, more importantly, do...

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
