RUMOR MILL

Thursday - December 2nd

Frank Seravalli The Daily Faceoff put together a list of the top 15 trade targets as we close out the second month. Amongst the list is former Ranger J.T. Miller, whom is among several Canucks players that might become available given their start to the season.

There's a lot working against this one though, especially with the Rangers now talking to Strome about an extension. While Miller can also play wing as well as center, the challenge will likely be trying to fit the $5.25M salary into the roster for next year, not to mention what they would do after next season when he becomes a UFA.

The 28 year old forward (29 in March), certainly has done well in Vancouver, putting up nearly a point a game (141 points in 146 games), and could well want out if the Canucks decide to rebuild. Alternatively, the Canucks might want to keep much of their current team, and certainly someone who has been such a good fit there.

Canucked It Up
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 12:55:40 PM - November 3, 2021

For forty minutes last night, it looked like the Rangers would get away with another win despite being outplayed, but a four minute span in the third period saw the Canucks tie up the game, with former Rangers J.T. Miller getting two of the three goals.

Six penalty kills, and a two for five effort on the power play would be enough on most nights, but the Rangers inability to generate much offense going 5 on 5, meant that it was another busy night for Igor Shesterkin, who stopped 33 of the 36 shots he faced.

Twenty thoughts:

  1. Shesterkin is now 5-1-2 on the season, but he looked visibly upset after losing the puck and allowing Miller to sneak around the net and beat a diving Barclay Goodrow.  Shesterkin had many strong saves last night, but did seem to be fighting the puck a bit.  He's likely to get a night off this weekend when the Rangers play back to back games against the Oilers and Flames

  2. Last night marked the second time this season that the Rangers have scored twice on the power play.  This time though it wasn't Chris Kreider tallying on the man advantage, both Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin scored their first power play goals of the season, and just the second for each at any strength

  3. Adam Fox picked up two more assists and continues to lead the team with 11 points in 10 games.  Panarin is one behind him with 10

  4. STONE COLD KILLERS: The Rangers killed a season high six penalties, and are now ranked 8th in the league with an 86.1% efficiency rating.  Since giving up 4 in their first 7 short handed chances, they have gone 28 for 29

  5. POWER UP: Two power play goals also moved the Rangers unit up, and they are now ranked a season high 20th, going at 19.4%

  6. The refs called the game tightly, but even then you'd be hard pressed to find a game like last night where Fox gets two penalties in a game

  7. Late in the third the Rangers got a 36 second 5 on 3, and a goal would have broken the 2-2 tie.  Both Ryan Strome and Panarin fanned on pucks with partial open nets, and Canuck netminder Thatcher Demko further frustrated the Rangers with a skate save while he was on the ice and missing his blocker glove.  The Rangers had chances, but ultimately couldn't get the puck across the line

  8. Shesterkin too had an intersting save in the first, when a puck appeared to go through the five hole and then simply disappeared.  Needless to say it didn't go in

  9. Jarred Tinordi dressed in his second straight game after sitting out seven in a row.  He wasn't much of a factor to the bad or the good

  10. Through their first 10 games this season, the Rangers have lost in regulation just twice, which matches the record from 2015-16 when the also went 6-2-2.  In terms of points, the last time they had 14 points from 10 games, was in 2016-17

  11. The Rangers had won their previous two games that they carried a lead into the third period, they are now 2-0-1 on the season

  12. In case you were wondering, the Rangers managed 21 of 44 in faceoffs, one faceoff win away from being an even .500

  13. ATTEMPTING STATISTIC: 43 - number of shots the Rangers took (22), missed (10), or had blocked (11).  The Canucks had 65

  14. Maybe it's time to try Kaapo Kakko on the Zibanejad line.  Through six games now, he has not registered a point playing almost exclusively with Panarin and Strome

  15. Zibanejad's goal in the second period, was his 138th as a New York Ranger, that tied Bill Fairbairn for 31st all time.  It was also the 23rd time he's scored the first goal of a game since moving to Broadway, which ties Ron Duguay for 29th all time

  16. CENTURY MAN: With two assists, Adam Fox now has 100 points in 135 games.  He became the 148th player to reach that milestone with the Rangers.  Brian Leetch took 104 games to reach that mark

  17. It was the third straight loss in Vancouver for the Rangers, who last won a game here in February 2018

  18. The Rangers are now 1-1-1 against the Pacific, having lost to Calgary and beaten Seattle previously

  19. A ROUND OF SHOTS: The Rangers are currently averaging 26.9 shots a game, which is 31st in the league, and allowing 31.9 shots for a shot differential of -5.0 - that's 30th in the league, bettering only the Coyotes and Blue Jackets.  They have outshot their opponents just 3 times in the first 10 games

  20. Libor Hajek has yet to dress in a game...
