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.
27 players signed, but just one of Top 15 so far...
The biggest name has been Ray Whitney, the 40-year-old winger who left the uncertainty of Phoenix for a two-year, $9 mil contract with Dallas. Shane Doan not deciding anything today, as expected, and wrote yesterday.
Isles have inked Brad Boyes to a no-risk, one-year, $1-mil deal.
But three years for D Matt Carkner? Remember his cheapshot of Brian Boyle with Ottawa? Should be some throwdowns in the six games with the NYR this season.
Nothing fresh on Zach Parise or Ryan Suter, except that teams have sent in lucrative offers. Rangers remain in on Nash and presumably Bobby Ryan, but nothing may happen immediately.
Zenon Konopka to the Wild. Like it. As I wrote yesterday, would've like to see him with Rangers, especially under $1 mil.
Kinda wondering where Jagr will end up. He did sag at the end of last season remember...
