HHOF Member Harry Howell Dead At Age 86

from Scott Radley of TheSpec,

He may have been the greatest hockey player Hamilton has ever produced. Probably was.

He won the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenceman. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in a class with Bobby Orr and Rocket Richard. Canada Post put out a stamp of him. His number became one of just 10 retired by the New York Rangers and raised to the rafters of Madison Square Garden.

Yet when news broke that Harry Howell had passed away late Saturday night at 86, nobody talked about his work on the ice. They all wanted to talk about Harry the man.

"He was a gentleman," says Dean Prentice, who played with him in junior and was called up to the Rangers the same day as Howell back in 1952. "He was well-liked by everybody and he always had a smile."

The New York Rangers Negotiating With Mats Zuccarello And Kevin Hayes

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

There has been a shift in the dynamic as the Rangers approach the Feb. 25 trade deadline.

The Post has learned that general manager Jeff Gorton is now engaged in an ongoing dialogue with the agents for pending free agents Mats Zuccarello and Kevin Hayes as the Blueshirts weigh extending the contracts of two of their best players against the return they might get for either or both on the market.

Cap considerations for 2019-20 and beyond are also a major part of the equation. There is, we are told, considerable distance between the parties, but that is to be expected as the negotiating process with each player is in a relatively early stage.

All Signs Pointing To Kevin Hayes And Mats Zuccarello Being Moved At The Trade Deadline

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Twelve days and six games away from the Feb. 25 trade deadline, The Post has learned that Blueshirts general manager Jeff Gorton has not engaged in contract extension talks with either Kevin Hayes or Mats Zuccarello.

Hence, the Rangers are on course to trade both impending free agents as rental properties in exchange for draft picks and NHL-ready prospects in a continuation of the rebuild policy instituted one year ago. The question therefore is not so much, “if” as “when and to whom?” You’d have to think the team will pull Hayes and Zuccarello from the lineup sooner rather than later in order to protect against a deal-wrecking injury.

The powerful Central-leading Jets, who defeated the Blueshirts 4-3 on Tuesday night by scoring twice within 1:59 early in the third after the visitors had overcome a first-period 2-0 deficit, are believed among the most interested parties in Hayes. The Jets have a handful of highly regarded prospects, including forwards Jack Roslovic and Kristian Vesalainen and defenseman Sami Niku.

They also could be in on Zuccarello, who before the match told The Post that he “[has] not heard any concrete news from my agent,” while his agent at Newport Sports, Don Meehan, told The Post that the Norwegian’s situation is “status quo.” Sources confirmed the same as it applies to Hayes.

New York Rangers Trade Goaltender Marek Mazanec To The Vancouver Canucks

NEW YORK, February 12, 2019 – New York Rangers General Manager Jeff Gorton announced today that the team has acquired a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Marek Mazanec.

Mazanec was signed by the Rangers as a free agent on December 6, 2017. He appeared in 40 games with the Rangers’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, over parts of two seasons (2017-18 and 2018-19).

What A Night For Alexandar Georgiev

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

This is becoming a ritual for the Rangers.

When Henrik Lundqvist turned 36 last March 2, the King faced 51 shots and stopped 50 of them in the Rangers’ 3-1 victory in Calgary.

So naturally, when Alexandar Georgiev turned 23 on Sunday, the Bulgarian faced 56 shots and stopped 55 of them in the Blueshirts’ 4-1 victory over the high-octane Maple Leafs at the Garden.

Who’s got the presents for the goalie with the presence to have turned away all 23 of Toronto’s power-play shots during its eight minutes with the man-advantage?

“I tried to have a special birthday,” said Georgiev, at his best early in making rapid-fire close-in stops on John Tavares and Auston Matthews on Toronto’s first power play. “I tried not to concentrate on the birthday wishes because I had an important game in front of me.

“I’m very happy it ended the way it ended.”

Mats Zuccarello Anxious To Learn His Fate As The Trade Deadline Approaches

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

Mats Zuccarello is in wait and see mode with 15 days remaining until the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline on Feb. 25 at 3 p.m. ET. The New York Rangers forward, in the final year of a four-year contract, is staying calm and playing well, but he'd really like to know if he's going to be traded, and to what team.

"I just wish sooner rather than later, just to clarify it," Zuccarello told NHL.com prior to the Rangers game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

"But I'm here now. I'll play my hardest and do my best. That's all I can control."
