Rangers/Bruins On NBC Ratings

from Puck the Media,

NBC must be super excited about having another Ranger game to air next week.  The network’s telecast of New York’s victory over Boston drew a 1.0/3 in the 12:30 timeslot, according to Sports Business Daily.  It’s about even with the comparable Pens-Capitals telecast from last year, and should equal or beat the final 0.8 rating Pittsburgh-Washington drew a year ago.

Can Antropov Be The Answer?

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

If it’s impossible to know what the Rangers truly have surrendered for 18 regular-season games of Antropov, it’s nearly as difficult to know what Leafs GM Brian Burke sent Glen Sather’s way at Wednesday’s deadline, because Antropov has long been one of the NHL’s biggest mysteries, aside from his 6-foot-6 frame.

Tomorrow afternoon should provide a clue about what the Rangers have when Antropov goes against Boston’s 6-foot-9 Zdeno Chara at the Garden in one of those nationally televised games that have been habitual debacles for Broadway’s team.

Rangers Now Have ‘Personality’

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

“I think you need personality,” Tortorella said following yesterday’s practice. “I don’t think you need a bunch of people saying, ‘Yes sir, how many times should I go through that wall for you, sir?’

“I think personality is very important as you play an eight-month season.”...

Now there’s some strut. Now there’s some edge. Now the Rangers are better fortified to make some kind of a stand following the reacquisition of Sean Avery (seems like old news, doesn’t it?) and the acquisitions of big forward Nik Antropov and semi-tough defenseman Derek Morris in deadline trades in which the second-rounder that went to Toronto was the only item of future value that Sather sacrificed.

The Avery Treatment

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

“This was a hard-core 14-day treatment conducted in a lockdown environment in which Sean was grouped with patients who were experiencing serious addiction problems,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of remaining anonymous.

“Sean worked on a technique called, ‘mindfulness,’ which is a type of meditation exercise that gives an individual a type of checklist in his mind that allows him time to consider what he is going to say before he actually says it.

“It’s like installing a switch that slows things down.”

Since completing the two-week program after entering Stage 1 of the NHL/NHLPA behavioral health program, Avery has continued to receive counseling, with regularly scheduled sessions with a personal therapist in New York. These sessions will continue for an indefinite period, perhaps for the remainder of Avery’s career, if not life.

Just What The Rangers Needed

from Stan Fischler of Game On,

My gut feeling is that a reformed-enough Avery is precisely what the roster requires and at no cost to the current lineup – at least not yet.

Smart enough to have learned his lesson; young enough to still ooze with energy, grateful plenty for a second chance, Gabbo, I predict, be a galvanizing force in the dressing room as well as on the ice.

St. Louis in Trade Rumors

From Damien Cox at The Spin:

Suddenly, it appears that Marty St. Louis, rather than Vinny Lecavalier, may be the Tampa Bay Lightning star that could be on the move.

Multiple teams are calling Lightning GM Brian Lawton about St. Louis’ availability even though the veteran forward has a no-trade clause in his contract. One of the most interested clubs may be the New York Rangers, particularly since St. Louis’ former coach, John Tortorella, is now behind the New York bench.

St. Louis would become the No. 1 forward available before Wednesday’s NHL trade deadline if the Lightning were to ask him to waive his no-trade status. Not only is he still an elite and productive forward, the 33-year-old has Stanley Cup championship experience and will be heading into the final two years of a contract next season that will pay him a very affordable $4 million in salary.
