With Klein out indefinitely, another opportunity for McIlrath

GREENBURGH – The Rangers’ mission just got a bit more difficult. Defenseman Kevin Klein was diagnosed Wednesday with a fractured right thumb, and is out indefinitely. How this affects the trade deadline and any decision to deal a defenseman (notably Keith Yandle) remains to be seen.

Could Kevin Shattenkirk Save The Rangers' Crisis on Defense?

St. Louis Blues' defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk could provide the Rangers a way out of what has developed into a problematic Keith Yandle situation with few answers. One can debate whether trading John Moore, a first-round pick, second-round pick, and most importantly, Anthony Duclair, to acquire Keith Yandle in March of 2015 was the right move for the Rangers. Regardless, what everyone agreed upon at the time is that it was a bold move that should solidify the Rangers' spot as a contender for not only 2015, but 2016 as well. Things haven't played out quite according to plan. The Rangers were...

Game 49: Arizona Coyotes @ Minnesota Wild

As far as months go, January has been pretty bad for the Wild. They haven't been winning, they haven't played well, and this is a team that's looking pretty desperate for answers. Tonight they look to make their limping into the All-Star break just a little less noticeable with a victory against the Arizona Coyotes. This time last year, the Coyotes were out of the playoff race and in the process of trading off guys like Devan Dubnyk, Zbynyk Michalek, Antoine Vermette, and Keith Yandle. No doubt the players still tried hard, but management was flat-out tanking for a McEichel...

The Rangers Looming RFA Situation Is Quickly Coming To A Head

J.T. Miller, Kevin Hayes, and Chris Kreider are all Restricted Free Agents at the end of the season. With a severe cap crunch, the Rangers have big decisions to make by the Trade Deadline. The Rangers are in a serious, self inflicted, cap crunch. They might have to trade their best defenseman, Keith Yandle, which will hinder the team in making needed improvements to the roster. The Rangers have three very young, talented RFAs who will need raises this offseason. Like Carl Hagelin, at least one of these three players will be a salary cap casualty. So who should get dealt at the deadline?...

Regarding the Rangers: 1. If Alain Vigneault’s season-long strategic use of Keith Yandle is any indication, and you would think it would be, the Rangers cannot seriously be invested in attempting to keep the puck-moving impending free agent off the market. For even on Monday night, when the Blueshirts were reduced to five defensemen for...
