Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.
Not a huge worry here, not unexpected, but notable.
Rangers forwards Derick Brassard, Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello -- restricted free agents who were eligible for salary arbitration -- filed before Saturday’s 5 p.m. deadline. No date for the arbitration hearings have been set and talks on new contracts will continue. In general, a large majority of hearings never take place; there's an...Read more »
The market opened at noon, below are the key transactions...
Let's start with the Rangers' gets and goners
Dan Boyle to the Rangers for two years, $9 million.
Here's what I wrote yesterday: Can still quarterback a power play, but turns 38 soon and teams may be wary of a two-year deal. Still, righty defensemen are valuable and although his numbers have diminished (10-29-39), his...Read more »

Mentioned him in my draft preview in Friday's paper as one of several forwards who might be avail in third round.
So at No. 85, it's Keegan Iverson, Center. Six-foot, 215-pound Minnesota native was 22-20-42 in 67 games for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. Models game after Jarome Iginla.
Rangers received this pick from Vancouver in the Derek Dorsett trade. Also, NYR trade No....Read more »
Brandon Halverson, 18 is a 6-4 goalie---born in Michigan--- who was 12-6-1 with a 2.96 GAA for Sault Ste. Marie of the OHL. Possible No. 1 down the road. Highest goalie drafted since Antoine LaFleur in 2nd round in 2007.
This from Buzzing The Net:
The Traverse City, MI., native thrived in a backup position behind Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Matt Murray in his rookie season of major...Read more »
As part of the continuing post-Tortorella shakeup in Vancouver---headed by GM Jim Benning and new coach Willie Desjardins---Derek Dorsett was shipped to Vancover today for a third-round draft pick.
The pick (No. 85) is the one acquired by the Canucks earlier today in their trade of Ryan Kesler to Anaheim.
The Canucks apparently inquired about Dorsett recently; Dorsett played for ...Read more »
Greetings from Philadelphia, about five hours away from the start of the draft:
Now that Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler is going to Ducks for Nick Bonino, Luca Sbisa and the 24th overall pick in the draft, expect some movement from Western teams to play catchup and maybe more coming from Canucks new GM Jim Benning. Not sure Rangers have a trade partner there, though.

Tampa used a compliance buyout on Ryan Malone (who carried a $4.5-million cap charge and was busted for DUI and cocaine possession in April) and gives the dough and space to Ryan Callahan.
Callahan, 29, obviously wanted stability and his deal reportedly includes a full no-move for four years and partial no-trade for two, which is not something that the Rangers could live with.
He’s not...Read more »
