Top-20 worst bang-for-the-buck NHL forwards in 2010-11

Top-20 worst bang-for-the-buck NHL forwards in 2010-11

When the 2010-11 NHL regular season ended about three weeks ago, some teams analyzed the production of some of their key players thinking why did we give so much money to the players listed below. While some productive players like Joe Thornton (21 goals, but 70 points), Henrik Sedin (19 goals, but 94 points) and [...]

Forward Thinking – The Rangers Up Front

Forward Thinking – The Rangers Up Front

Monday was break-up day for the New York Rangers after getting bounced out of the playoffs in five games by the Washington Capitals. Constructed as is, this team is clearly not ready to contend. While there are some decent young pieces in place, not only will they need to mature and improve, but they will [...]

Rangers Bow Out On The Beltway

Rangers Bow Out On The Beltway

The Rangers’ 2010-11 campaign came to a close Saturday with a 3-1 game 5 loss to the Washington Capitals, going with a whimper rather than with the bang that they’ve played with most of the season. No question the Capitals are clearly a more skilled team with better talent; I have no problem giving the [...]

You Win Some, You Lose Some

You Win Some, You Lose Some

After playing two-and-a-half periods of hockey tonight that could be classified as an insomniac’s dream-come-true, the New York Rangers somehow found a way to score four unanswered goals in the third to defeat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 at the CONSOL Energy Center. The victory was the Rangers’ League-leading 12th on the road. The Penguins came [...]

The Captain’s In, So Who’s Out?

The Captain’s In, So Who’s Out?

New York Rangers captain Chris Drury got the all clear Sunday on his finger that was re-broken in the October 15th home opener against Toronto. Today he was practicing on the fourth line with Todd White, Erik Christensen and Sean Avery, and it looks like he will be in the lineup when the Rangers take [...]

A Wild Afternoon at MSG

A Wild Afternoon at MSG

Today’s New York Rangers-Edmonton Oilers game had all the makings of a trap game for the home team. The Rangers could’ve just figured, “Eh, they’re awful. This is the last game of a road trip during which they got pummeled 7-1 by Carolina and 6-2 by Detroit.” They could’ve got caught up in the whole [...]

Turning 2 Negatives Into A Positive

Turning 2 Negatives Into A Positive

I sat down yesterday evening with the full intent on writing about some New York Rangers negatives. First I was thinking about writing about how lifeless both the team and the crowd were in Sunday night’s loss to the St. Louis Blues. But thinking about it was just making me as bored as I was [...]

Not Hitting The Panic Button – Yet

Not Hitting The Panic Button – Yet

After a 6-3 victory on opening night in Buffalo, the New York Rangers have gone 0-2-1 in the 3 games that have followed. In game 1, the Rangers, for the most part, stayed out of the penalty box and were able to take advantage of the Sabres’ defensive mistakes and penalties. Since then they have [...]

Two Left Wings and a Prayer

Two Left Wings and a Prayer

I’m really excited that New York Rangers training camp officially opening today. It’s a clean slate. It’s time to forget about the shootout loss to Philadelphia that left them on the outside of the playoffs by one point and made the slog through the offseason even longer. I’m really trying  my best to be positive [...]

Is Ray Whitney the veteran winger the Bruins need?

B’s Enter Free-Agency With Big Needs & Little Money

It was a rainy day in March when the Bruins disappointed their fans by failing to pull the trigger on a trade that would’ve brought some much needed scoring up front to bolster a pedestrian offense. Despite a near-run to the Eastern Conference Finals amidst this lack of scoring, the B’s would once again come [...]

Olympic break hangover – cured

Olympic break hangover – cured

What has gone on in Los Angeles? An opportunity, which the team jumped on, in rebounding last night against Columbus.

They’re back

They’re back

The Olympics are over.  Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown and Jonathan Quick are all coming home with medals. However, they are all coming home united as Kings again. On Monday night, the Olympic break proved beneficial to one team and not so much to the other. The Detroit Red Wings who seemed to be healthy for [...]
