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.

Slow Rangers start is forcing Gorton's hand for a move


Player or Coach--Who goes First?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 10:36:07 AM - October 30, 2017

A tweet from Shawn Simpson of TSN--- "Schoenfeld, Leger, Sather, & Risebrough from NYR all here tonight. Very rare to have senior staff at one game. "  The game is the Habs vs Sens     The guess would be from the Habs Alex Gachenyuk who is a 23 year ole American who has been dropped to the 4th line over the last few games by the Habs. He is contracted for 3 more years at an yearly average of $4.9 million per.  The Rangers have made deals with the Senators lately and Kyle Turris  could be the piece from the Senators the Rangers are looking at. Turris is 28 years old and this year is making $3.5 and is a UFA next season. It has been in the rumor mill that the Senators are looking to move Turris because they don't think they'll be able to afford him after this season. Both players are ex 1st round picks.  Looks as if something will happen soon.

In a tweet from Brian Heyman who is covering for Steve Zipay today:  Staal: "We're just not in the right frame of mind to start the game and it's causing us to be outplayed"WOW!!!! Where the hell is the coach before the games???? Where is the players leadership???? Were Stepan and Girardi the palayers who held everyone accountable??? This just proves the bottom article

If your Rangers General Manager Jeff Gorton, you have to be having many sleepless nights so far this season. Gorton has transformed this roster since his taking over as G.M., there are only 5 players that hasb't been signed, re-signed, drafted, or traded for left in the organization and they are named Henrik Lundqvist, Marc Staal, Rick Nash, and Adam Tambellini. It's amazing that the players under contract and having a legit shot at playing at the Garden for the Blueshirts have had such a large shakeup in the last 2+ years. His head coach is the same directing the cast of players Gorton believes in. Going on all sorts of speculation and an article by Rangers insider Larry Brooks, it seems the Rangers are ready to put a new coach in charge of this changing roster which makes sense to turn around this 3-7-2 start of the 2017-2018 season.

To say this Rangers organization has been far below expectations is an under statement. The Buyout of Dan Girardi was supposed to be the huge shakeup on the defense, which was to make room for McDonagh to be paired with " I want to play at home for a discount" Kevin Shattenkirk. Well, knowing how coach Alain Vigneault chooses players, it was easy to see that he would put Marc Staal on the first pairing with Shattenkirk, the same way he had Girardi on the first pairing last season. It is common sense that the draw to N.Y. Rangers was for Shattenkirk to play with either McDonagh or Brady Skjei, fellow Americans with bright futures. But the coach has decided to play #22 with probably the only player he doesn't want on his left side. The newest question is with this coach behind the bench that is addicted to "his type of player like Tanner Glass (experienced vets with not that much talent in important spots and big focus minutes), should G.M. Gorton changed the coach in the offseason or buy out BOTH Girardi and Staal. Granted the buyout of both players would have been alot of dead cap for years to come, but if players making the minimum salary, such as DeAngelo(who was a "have to" part of the Stepan trade) and Pionk and let them play through rookie mistakes early in the season until they caught up to the speed of the game--hell they couldn't have been much worse than the 3-7-2 they are now.Actually , according to the site CAPFRIENDLY.COM, they would actually gain $1,783,334 in cap space.....and that's still including Holden and Kampfer on the roster.

The coach tried to make Adam Craknell his new Tanner Glass by having him picked up off of waivers. New Assistant coach Lindy Ruff tried to help out Cracknell stay on the team by having Coach Vigneault use him correctly like Ruff did in Dallas by putting him at center but Craknell was just not a fit. Finally Boo Nieves was brougt up and added 3 points his first game in this season.

The Rangers top players are clearly the main reason for the team isues, but who the coach is pairing them with isn't helping. The like of Chris Kreider-Mika Zibanejad- Pavel Buchnevich was on fire at the start of the season. So the coach breaks them up and puts Buchnevich on the 4th line, WHY? Zibanejab is a minus 7. Kreiider is now a minus 3 while Buchnevich is even.So who is the defensive liability coach??

Let's face it, just watching the games it seems as if some of the key players has stopped listening to the coach and are just going through the motions. When it gets like this, only a true shakeup can make a difference. The G.M. has made alot of changes and made trades to only have the coach not use the players for the situations they were brought in for. Granted, during the summer they Rangers Brass has organizational meetings to talk about where they all want the organization to go, but it is clear that the coach and the G.M. are not on the same page. Which one goes first? I personnaly like the moves for the future the Rangers have made, so I'm hoping it's not the G.M. or most of the players moved. The Rangers finally have fast and talented players at forward and Defense, now the coach needs to give them a system that will make things work.

LET'S GO RANGERS!!!
