O'Connor would be an addition to a relatively deep pool of goaltender prospects that include Mackenzie Skapsi, Igor Shesterkin and Brandon Halverson.

Per Bob McKenzie on twitter, the Rangers are competing with Ottawa, Edmonton and Buffalo.

What is Stepan worth to the Rangers?
NEXT TWO WEEKS WILL MOLD THE FUTURE
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 12:42:54 PM - July 13, 2015

Anyone who follows the Rangers knows how good this team has been for the past few years. They have won divisions, been to 3 of the last 4 conference finals, and a Stanley Cup Final just last year, but they haven't had that extra something to bring the Cup back to New York. The Rangers have been successful while having a somewhat revolving door around their core players of Henrik Lundqvist, Marc Staal, Dan Girardi, Ryan McDonagh, Mats Zuccarello, Carl Hagelin, and Cam Talbot. The Rangers had already traded ex-captain Ryan Callahan, Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, and a few other homegrown Rangers to get bigname players to add while working within the cap system. This Summer the Rangers already traded Cam Talbot who deserved to be a starter somewhere for picks, and Carl Hagelin for Emerson Etem to save somewhere near $2 and 1/2 million this year. The cap makes you pick and choose who you can keep longterm and who is just for a year or two.

The biggest questionmark this summer for Jeff Gorton is what to do with Derek Stepan. Stepan has been a great Ranger and focal point as the 1st or 2nd line center for a successful team that is again one of the favorites to make a solid run for the Cup. While other teams have been out there this summer improving or losing key players, the Rangers have just been making the little changes needed to keep the core and get them over the top finally. The Rangers have seen Carl Hagelin come into his own and should earn over $3 million per season and couldn't fit into the Rangers cap number earning that amount as a 3rd liner and still be able to afford Chris Kreider and Kevin Hayes for the future. So a very big decision has already been made. Now, what will Gorton do to keep Stepan? New General Manager Jeff Gorton has already stated that during the end of the season interviews, that they are in the ballpark with all this summers free agents. Gorton has already signed Brandon Halverson and Marek Hrivik while Carl Klingberg has signed in the KHL. Ryan Haggerty was traded to Chicago for new backup goalie Antti Raanta. Derek Stepan and the Rangers are headed for arbitration on July 27th for what will most likely be a 2 year contract. The Rangers can still come to an agreement with Stepan on a contract before then or trade his rights before the hearing date. Once the hearing is done, the Rangers can either agree and sign Stepan for the hearing amount or decline (like they did in the Zherdev case) and then Stepan would be a unrestricted free agent. If the Ranger agree to the hearing amount, they can not trade him for the 1st year of the extension. BIG decision to make that will have a trickle down affect throughout the whole organization.

Rumors Everywhere!!!!
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 12:49:00 PM - June 25, 2015

With the 2015 draft a day away and today being the start of the "open talks" with free agents throughout the NHL, the rumors are flying everywhere. You can go on sites like TSN, The Hockey News, Hockeybuzz, etc. and see all the wild and sometimes not so crazy rumors out there. A big part of some of the rumors is common sense figuring out and some are liget like Dreger, McKenzie, etc....  The first common sense trade will be Cameron Talbot for a 1st round draft pick or a 2nd+ prospect since Dreger and Larry Brooks have reported the Rangers have already turned down a proposed trade for "multiple 2nd rounders". Once the Talbot trade happens, I would guess then the rest of the goalies and position players will be moved and the real fun starts for the draft where there is usually a few big deals that go down on draft day  more

 
What Direction Will The Rangers Go?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 11:27:02 AM - June 22, 2015

The Rangers have had a pretty good last 4 years with reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in 3 of those years. Last year semed like "the year" with them winning the Presidents Trophy for the best regular season record, but wound up to banged up to reach the finals. Now, as the Rangers heal up from another long run in the playoffs without bringing home the Stanley Cup to New York, there are many decisions to be made. The Biggest one was answered last week when Glen Sather said that the organizational bigwigs were staying in place until July 1st meaning that he would stay on as General Manager until after the draft. With the draft coming up this weekend and the "open discusion" time with free agents opening but can't officially sign until July 1st, it would seem that everyone will be on the same page when Sather hands over the General Manager duties to Jeff Gorton  more

 
Game 7 Clunker
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 1:44:57 PM - May 30, 2015

The Rangers worked hard all season and it seems as though the Presidents Trophy curse is still alive this season. Playoffs are a time where every team is banged up, The Rangers looked at times as though they were lifeless. It turns out that some of the players had no energy to tap into as after the game the coach admitted that Rangers Captain Ryan McDonagh was playing on a broken foot and Kevin Weekes tweeted that Marc Staal was playing on a broken ankle. Everyone knew that Mats Zuccarello missed many games because of his concussion. Even with Henrik Lundqvist playing his best hockey, the Rangers would have been an easy out the next series without those three key players. It will be interesting in the next few days in the players exit physicals to see who else needs some sort of medical treatment due to injuries. It would seem that Rick Nash, Martin St. Louis, Dan Girardi, and Dan Boyle were all playing with some sort of issues  more

 
Stars Played Like Stars in Game 6
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 11:36:35 AM - May 28, 2015

It is amazing how good the Rangers are when they play as a team and everyone is willing to go into the hard areas and pay the price for success. They can not afford to follow up a great offensive explosion of 7 goals in Game 6 with another disappearing act like game 5 or the Rangers will disappear from this years playoffs  more

 
How Do You NOT Play Hard In Game 5?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 12:01:17 PM - May 25, 2015

The Rangers used a desperate game where everyone left all they had on the ice and Game 4 ended in a Rangers 5-1 win and the series tied at 2 heading back to MSG where the Rangers were expected to take it up anopther notch. What really happened was that it seemed as if the goalie was the only one that showed up while Tampa lifted their game. The Rangers had the same issues during the regular season and it just doesn't seem to make any sense in the big scheme of things in the playoffs. During the playoffs is when nobody can take a night off if the team wants to keep advancing. This years version seems to have players that have issues with showing intensity on a nightly basis. The "senior" forwards are the biggest problem as Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis showed up in Game 4 for 3 goals between them in the 5-1 win and again forgot the address of MSG in the Game 5 2-0 loss  more
