RUMOR MILL

Thursday - March 25th

With 18 days remaining until the NHL trade deadline, all is relatively quiet on the Rangers front.

Not unexpectedly, the Rangers are probably going to be minor players this time round, without much in the way of short term assets they would be looking to part with.

Clearly they would look at offers for those on short term or expiring contracts like Brendan Smith, Ryan Strome, Jack Johnson and perhaps the likes of Colin Blackwell.

Change Begins Now
Posted by Daniel Akeson ≡ - October 25, 2007

The record is unacceptable. Every critic and doomsday theorist predicted a return to the dark ages when Scott Gomez and Chris Drury were signed and are now saying "told you so." Now is the time to turn it around.

The Rangers play seven of their next eight at home, with their one road game being against the Islanders. This home-stand has the potential to make or break this team, but will nonetheless be a pivotal point of the 2007-'08 season.

In addition to being at home, the Rangers play very beatable opponents: New Jersey, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Washington, the Islanders and closer teams such as Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

While this could be disastrous if they continue to lose, it could breed a lot of momentum and immediately turn around this sub-par start. Wins against these opponents would prove to New York that they can play with the majority of the Eastern conference and challenge the better teams in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

What is often lost in these first eight games is that the Rangers have been close, within a goal or two, to the top contenders for the Eastern conference, Ottawa and Pittsburgh for example. The loss is discouraging, but the score is encouraging. They are not getting blown out.

Additionally, this is the first real crack at the Atlantic Division this season. The Rangers did fall to Pittsburgh and the Islanders, but now that they seem to have established a little bit of consistency in their lines, it will provide a good test of where they stand in the division.

So the stage is set, but what must the players do? Here are a few keys to playing a successful home-stand:

- Henrik Lundqvist must continue his torrid pace. He has been lights out this season and gotten no help offensively. If the Rangers can combine his play with a scoring effort, they will be in great shape.

- Blow a team away. Of course we want to see 5 - 1 wins, but for the Rangers confidence this serves an important function. It seems that they need one big game or period to gain some confidence and pull out of this funk. If they can get that early in the home stand, it will carry throughout the series.

- Win one close. Sure this is a bit hypocritical to the above, but at the same time it will show the Rangers that they can shut down an opponent when need be. Nothing better than winning a 1-0 game.

- Get the power play going. The Rangers need to improve their power play. They have a lot of puck possession time and time in the offensive zone, but not much to show for it. If they can do this, it will also help at even strength.

- Fans to stop booing Malik. I've been a big proponent of this and it needs to stop. As Larry Murphy said, it doesn't just affect the player, but the whole team as well. This team needs confidence, not having to protect one of their teammates against their own fans.

I think the Rangers have a strong chance of going 8 - 2, at least, over the next eight games and will really begin to show signs of the team that we thought we were getting in July.
