Shanahan Stuck On Zero Goals

from the NY Post,

So far, Brendan Shanahan’s season has been a microcosm of the Rangers’. Through five games, Shanahan has 32 shots on goal - including 13 against the defending Eastern Conference champion Senators on Saturday. Yet, he still finds himself with zero goals and his team tied for last place the Atlantic Division.

The 20-year veteran knows it’s still early, and he’s not letting the slow start get to him.

“There’s a difference between a sense of urgency and panicking,” Shanahan said yesterday. “This team is not panicking.”

League Files Injunction Against Rangers Lawsuit

from the LA Times,

...The NHL on Friday filed an initial response that asks a federal court in New York to reject Madison Square Garden’s demand for a preliminary injunction that would keep the league from taking over the Rangers’ website—and stop the league from imposing a $100,000-per-day fine. The filing also linked the lawsuit to “the sour grapes of one disgruntled NHL team owner.”

The league filing included supporting statements from Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, Minnesota Wild Chairman Bob Naegele and Pittsburgh Penguins Chief Executive Ken Sawyer—all supporters of the league’s new media plan.

Rangers Need Goals

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Through five games, the Blueshirts’ best players have been: 1. Henrik Lundqvist; 2. Fedor Tyutin; 3. Dan Girardi. In his role, the best forward has been Blair Betts. Uh oh.

In other words, is there any wonder why the Star Spangled Blueshirts have scored all of seven even-strength goals (and 10 overall) in a 2-3-0 getaway?

Scatchard Likely To Sign With Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

If Sean Avery hadn’t gone down with a sprained left shoulder, chances are pretty good Dave Scatchard would not have skated with the Rangers as he did yesterday on the first day of a tryout, and as he is likely to do regularly before too long as the club’s third-line center.

From the summer moment the Rangers sent Matt Cullen back to Carolina, it was all but inevitable Tom Renney would seek a veteran replacement to skate between young snipers Petr Prucha and Ryan Callahan, regardless of how good rookie applicants Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov looked in training camp.

Looking At The Rangers

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

What’s with the Blueshirts?

Perhaps the most telling observation was uttered by Tom Renney BEFORE the match when he talked of “minor anxieties” on his outfit from which so much is being expected.

Forget about “minor anxieties” and today it’s time to ratchet it up a notch to “MINOR anxieties.”

You know what comes after that, don’t you?

Jovo To Rangers Doesn’t Make Sense

from The Blueshirts Blog at the Daily News,

Do not, under any circumstances, consider this a precedent. Because I have no intention of spending time and space on this blog shooting down ridiculous rumors—I already have a full-time job, thank you.

But as so many of you have asked about “reports” that Ed Jovanovski is headed to the Rangers, I’ll make an exception.

This makes no sense on so many different levels it’s difficult to know where to start. But let’s start with some simple math:

Slow Starting Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

It isn’t only Scott Gomez, who appears to have fallen immediate victim to the well known Stephane Quintal Disease, named for the defenseman who lost his game on Broadway by trying to do way too much in order to justify his (comparatively) massive free-agent contract. It isn’t just Jaromir Jagr, who has looked in need of a GPS navigation system on the ice. It isn’t just Brendan Shanahan, whose start to the season has stalled shifting gears.
