Rangers Looking At Another Ex-Lightning Player?

Rangers Looking At Another Ex-Lightning Player?

Over the past decade, the joke among Rangers fans has been the team only trades with two teams (first it was the Coyotes, then the Blue Jackets…they like to keep it in the family). That said, the number of members of the Tampa Bay Lightning that have been in the organization is probably more than people realize. Part of that of course was due to John Tortorella being coach. While players say he…

Rangers “Win” Kevin Hayes Sweepstakes

Rangers “Win” Kevin Hayes Sweepstakes

Almost every post you read about the signing of Kevin Hayes is going to makes this seem like the best move the Rangers made this summer. I say almost every one because this post won’t. That said, I’m not entirely against the signing.

Anyway, as you’ve probably heard by now, Kevin Hayes was another college player who decided to go UFA rather than sign with the team that drafted him (Chicago…

Rangers Summer “News”: Traverse City Roster + More

Rangers Summer “News”: Traverse City Roster + More

I have a secret to tell everyone – throughout the entire spring, I just wanted the season to end. I can’t explain it but I was mentally fried from the ups and downs of the season and just needed a break. Now that we’ve had some time off, all I keep thinking is the same thing:

“Is it October yet?”

Sadly, it’s not but at least it’s almost September as September brings actual news. Until then, you…

Rangers Summer Updates: A Signing, A Wedding + More

There’s been a lot of news around the Rangers the past couple of days. Well, it’s summer so basically any news would be a lot.

The Rangers started on Friday by signinganother RFA, this time forward Ryan Bourque. There was no secret Bourque would be re-signed, especially when the team brought his brother into the organization earlier in the year. There is no word on terms (years or money) so all…

Could Rangers Players Play Another Position If Necessary?

Could Rangers Players Play Another Position If Necessary?

On Tuesday night, Chicago White Sox fans got quite a surprise when Adam Dunn came out to pitch the 9th inning. For those non-baseball fans, like myself, who don’t understand why this was a big deal, here you go:

Yes that lists his position as 1B. You don’t need to be a baseball fan to know first baseman and pitcher are two completely different positions. In hockey terms that would be similar to…

All Quiet With Rangers As Calendar Hits August

All Quiet With Rangers As Calendar Hits August

I’m going to be honest – I am writing this post in hopes that something happens. Because right now the biggest news (and only news) since Brassard signed was the announcement of what numbers four players will wear next season. While some might consider that news, none of them were really a surprise:

#NYR Numbers Game: This season Dan Boyle will wear 22, @TGlass1515, Lee Stempniak 12 & Jesper Fast…

No Arbitration For Rangers As Brassard Signs 5-Year Deal

No Arbitration For Rangers As Brassard Signs 5-Year Deal

I woke up this morning and decided to put on my Brassard t-shirt. Not sure why as I honestly didn’t expect any news on him until tomorrow morning but for some reason I thought it would be fitting to wear today. Guess I was right as around 3:30 pm Eastern Time, this was announced:

NYR sign Brassard to 5 yr, $25M deal

Smashfest A Hit For Dominic Moore + His Charities

Smashfest A Hit For Dominic Moore + His Charities

People say that NHL players are the nicest and most down to earth athletes. They are also known as some of the most caring, always taking part in charity events to help causes either special to them or to the sport. Dominic Moore is able to do both.

Moore is a part of two charities:

The Steve Moore Foundation, which focuses on concussions and head injuries, was started by Dominic’s brother after…
