RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - July 20th

It appears Matthew Tkachuk could be leaving Calgary soon, with the 24 year old forward being taken to salary arbitration by his club. Tkachuk would reportedly be interested in a US city, and it's thought the New York Rangers would be one of his preferred destinations.

The chances of that desire being realized though, are very low indeed. With the Rangers having signed Vincent Trocheck to a seven year deal last week, and with contracts coming due to Alexis Lafreniere, K'Andre Miller, Zac Jones, Vitali Kravtsov and Filip Chytil next season, it's hard to see how the Rangers could add yet another big name on a long term contract.

In order to clear $10 million in Cap space to account for Tkachuk, the Rangers are somewhat restricted by the NMCs the've handed out to Mika Zibanejad, Chris Kreider, Jacob Trouba, Artemi Panarin, and more recently, Vincent Trocheck.

The five players account for around $40M in Cap space, with untouchable players Adam Fox and Igor Shesterkin added an additional $15M or so.

The only way this would work is if they somehow also got one of that group, like Panarin, Trouba or Kreider, to waive their NMC to go to Calgary, which seems highly unlikely given they all set career marks here last year and seem well settled in New York.

In addition, the Rangers would likely have to deal additional players like Kakko, Chytil and perhaps a guy like Lundkvist, which perhaps could be overcome by the addition and the remaining depth in the organization.

Without the headliner going the other way though, it seems unlikely that this type of move would be possible.

The Wizard of Oz Sather has been outed as a G.M. with no special powers.


MSG is the New Emerald City
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 9:23:33 AM - December 13, 2013

What is playing at Madison Square Garden in Rangers Blue is as good as going to a play on Broadway, but ALOT more fustrating! Owner James Dolan has given Glen Sather the power over the Rangers organization as the Great and Powerful OZ! Sather came to the Rangers as a  Hall of Fame General Manager and coach of the Edmonton Oiler team that dominated the NHL with Hall of Fame players Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, and their crew. Listen Mr. Sather, you are not in Edmonton anymore. Instead of making a champion with "the fat payroll of New York", he has taken the team close, but now has the makings of of the characters of the Wizard of Oz because they have no HEART, COURAGE, or Brains . The Rangers have built the crown jewel of the NHL as the Garden is beautiful but have ousted what they thought was the bad witch in John Tortorella and replaced him with the good witch AV. The problem is that the team was made for Tort's and not the system of AV.  They clearly chose the wrong leader for this team as you can see every weakness each player has in this system, not their strengths.  It just looks like alot of the players are playing like the Tin Man with no heart, Cowardly Lion by playing scared by not going into the tough areas needed to win, and Scarecrow by playing like they are lost on the ice and making stupid plays.

This system is for players that can finish like the Sedin brothers and other finishers. It is clear to see that this Rangers team does not have the Sedin brothers or many finishers. Let's face it, with this roster it is clear that A.V. was not the right coach for this team. A.V. is a very good coach, but he either has to change the system or Sather needs to change the players ASAP! It is just frustrating on everyone from the Rangers organization to their loyal fanbase to see what is happening on the ice. Everyone has injuries so don't even think of that poor excuse! When the Rangers have players such as Taylor Pyatt, Benoit Pouliot, and Brian Boyle getting regular time, that just shows how much in trouble the Rangers are. There are alot of Rangers that should be on missing posters like Derek Stepan, Dan Girardi, Brad Richards, Carl Hagelin, and Henrik Lundqvist. It just seems like all the magic that these Rangers played with under Tortorella went west with him. The Rangers need a shakeup as soon as possible before this season gets out of hand. This team is lucky that the Metropolitan Division is very week this season as somehow, this very bad version of the Rangers is still within reach of a playoff spot besides not deserving it.

The Ranger players need to face the facts, they are a bunch of players that need a coach that forces them to play a hard grinding style because they don't have the skill to play a skilled game. A.V. needs new players that can finish because Rangerland is fed up with seing the same pathetic effort game after game. It is never the Rangers who own "between the faceoff dots " in any of the 3 zones, in front of the nets, or the faceoff circles. If you can't win a faceoff, you are always chasing the puck. The Rangers always throw the puck to the defenseman at the point and stand around while the defenseman can't get the puck through to the goal, or any of the five on the ice keep shooting wide going around the boards leading to an odd man rush against our goalie . When coming up the ice with the puck, there is always a forward standing still at the blueline as a teammate goes right into the same spot causing the team going into the offensive zone to be flatfooted, always along the boards, and outmanned. When the Ranger players find the courage to get in front of the net on offense, it is amazing how many chances they get, if a puck finally gets on net.

So the Great and Powerful OZ with a lifetime job in the Emerald City known as Madison Square Garden, it is time to banish the players that don't fit and find players with Heart, Courage, and Brains to play the new system of the coach you signed to a muliyear deal and bring the Rangers back to respectability. What is on the ice now is just not good enough for the price of admission.
