Halfway through 2nd round, no NYR movement up or down

Rangers are about 18 picks away from their first selection, unless they move up to get into lower half of second. Two top goalies, Zach Fucale and Tristan Jarry,  gone.

IMO, Buffalo has done pretty well so far....and Devs swiped Cory Schneider from Vancouver for a No. 9......

Draft day blog: NYR trade for D Justin Falk

Falk is 6-5, 220 and played 108 games.  Sent Benn Ferriero and a 6th rounder in 2014 to the Wild for him.

Assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld said here in Newark that it's a "first step" for adding defense depth and will get a look at training camp. My sense is that he's a No. 7 or could end up starting the year in Hartford.....

Scratching my head: Rangers giving Brad Richards a mulligan

Rangers center Brad Richards celebrates his second of

(Credit: AP)

The text from the Rangers really surprised me, although some people had a gut feeling that Brad Richards wouldn't go anywhere in 2013-14.

It read: "The Rangers will not be using our one remaining compliance buyout during this offseason."

In other words, Richards, coming off the worst campaign of his career, and his $9 million salary and $6.7 million cap hit will be with the...

Rangers draft targets, Mark Messier, Brad Richards

With the draft approaching Sunday, the Rangers have five selections as of now---with three picks in the third round, none in the first or second, although they could move up to the second round, we’re told.

They’ll be looking at left wings (plenty of righties in the system), a goalie to groom for five years (not Zach Fucale of Halifax, who will be gone in the first round), and defensive depth.

Me,...

If you missed the tweets yesterday or my story in today’s Newsday, we gave you some pertinent quotes from the new sheriff in Van City.

Rather than repeat ‘em here, I’ll provide some others; and you should check out the Vancouver Sun and the Vancouver Province for their takes on Torts, who was on his absolute best behavior, offering up his most sincere side, which is but one of...

Tuesday Thoughts: Rozy, Jagr, Game 6, buyouts, key dates

Before the Final, offered my best wishes to Rozy and Jags, two quality guys and former Rangers, and Rozy comes out on top with Hawks. He averaged 19:15 on ice in the post-season and was a plus-9, with four assists in 23 games. Really enjoyed covering him in New York, although he was the Garden’s designated whipping boy (sometimes well-deserved) on defense.

Wonder if Jags, 41, a world-class...

Time to give Brad Richards his money and let him walk

Maybe I’m missing something, but not quite sure about this theory that the loss of John Tortorella helps Brad Richards’ cause to NOT be bought out.

Tortorella hung on to his long-time compadre until the veteran center’s deteriorating play forced him to make a decision to demote and then bench him.  No choice. Would’ve happened sooner without their previous relationship from Tampa, methinks.

The Alain Vigneault Era with the Rangers begins Friday, but could anothers stay on Broadway be drawing to a close again?

Vigneault, the former Canucks head coach, will meet the press and take the helm, with the backing of President and General Manager Glen Sather.

Sather tapped the 52-year-old Vigneault over Mark Messier, who has served as his special assistant for almost four years,...
