Today's New York Rangers notes. Crazy that it's going to be August by the end of this week. That also means, luckily, we're getting closer to hockey! Here are your morning notes. Derick Brassard inked a five-year, $25 million extension, a deal that is good for both the player and team. [Blueshirt Banter] Introducing Dan Boyle, an apparent fix to the Rangers' power play woes. [Blueshirt Banter] Just wanted to chime in with some more thoughts on Brassard, while I'll try not to step on Joe's toes: With an AAV of $5 million, the key isn't to look at the value of Brassard's contract now, but...

Howdy, Ranger: Dan Boyle an apparent power play fix

Howdy, Ranger: Dan Boyle an apparent power play fix

While Dan Boyle was brought in to replace Anton Stralman, his main charge will be helping the Rangers' power play. In the coming days, we're profiling some of the new faces who will be a part of the Rangers this year. Get familiar! The defensemen who have been brought in to fix the Rangers anemic power play have all resoundingly failed. Paul Mara scored two power play goals in three seasons; Bryan McCabe equaled that total in his 19 game cup of coffee, but was also largely ineffective; and Derek Morris likewise didn't make a major impact in his brief New York stint. Dan Boyle is being...

Speaking for the first time since he signed with the Rangers, Dan Boyle talked about wanting to come to New York, playing under pressure, and reuniting with former teammate Martin St. Louis. [NY Post] [Ranger Rants] [Newsday] Brad Richards tenure in New York ended with a lackluster postseason, but make no mistake: Richards was quite effective in his final year as a Ranger. Report card time. [Blueshirt...

Dan Boyle chooses.... Toronto

Detroit promised big money, he's got a home in Tampa, but it would appear that Dan Boyle has found himself a new team and it's up north: It's official. The Leafs have signed Dan Boyle to a 2 year, $9 million contract. #TSN #FAF #NHL — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzje) July 1, 2014 He took less money than the supposed offer from Detroit, but that is still a big chunk of change.  With Toronto's potent power play, he could have a very successful stint with the club.  But, uh, Jonathan Bernier beware....  Things aren't necessarily getting better on the blueline.
