As I wrote about last week, goalie interference has been a topic of controversy around the NHL this year. Hockey insiders are reporting that the GMs are potentially going to announce changes to the league’s current rules regarding goalie interference.

From both an age and development standpoint, Tim Gettinger should be on his way to Hartford next season. He has recently signed an entry level contract with the Rangers earlier this month. Read more
In a season filled with talking points across the NHL, perhaps the biggest point of contention, outside of the Olympics, is goaltender interference. Games have been turned, and one could argue the 2014 Stanley Cup is a prime example, because of a goal that was allowed or disallowed based on the (poor) judgment of the referee. This needs to end, and there are a couple of simple solutions to this problem.
The New York Rangers are going to look very different next season both upfront and on the blueline. As you all know, the rebuild is starting soon and many big names will be moved out within the next few months. We’ve written about it quite a bit on the site but today we’re going to look at the ideal Rangers lineup for next season. Now full disclosure: this lineup isn’t based on any rumors or inside info that I have. It’s simply ideas that I have that I think would set the Rangers up best for future success.

On Thursday, I had the pleasure of talking with former New York Rangers enforcer Colton Orr. We discussed his role in the movie Goon: Last of the Enforcers which is out in theaters and available on digital.

We all love fighting in hockey, as long as it’s not staged. Emotions overflow, two guys just get in each other’s faces and won’t back down; but a whole team built to push the entire league around and win a championship? That doesn’t happen very often. Read more
Brandon Pirri has signed over seas in the Swiss National League, with the ZSC Lions. This is the same team that Kevin Klein signed with just last week. Brandon wasn’t a huge part of the Rangers team last season, he put up 18 points in 60 games. He is a lethal shooter, who just never was solid enough defensively to keep the minutes up. However at the beginning of the season, he looked good scoring 9 power play points and netting 3 game winners. This move to the Swiss league, isn’t too much of a surprise as he wasn’t going to get re-signed by the Rangers and there was much interest league wide. Remember as well just like Klein, moving to Swiss League, makes them eligible for the Olympics, and with NHL players not participating look for these player to express interest.
