There are three ways to win in life: Be first, be smarter, or cheat. It's a hell of a lot easier to be first.

Some names to know that may be under-the-radar, but their numbers make them beauties.

ESPN NY: Rangers Cup Window is Open


An article that (maybe) we can all agree on. Fair warning, there are those number thingy's called advanced stats involved, and they actually prove that the Rangers are moving forward (and that Stepan might not have a sophomore slump if he stays in the same role as George pointed out yesterday). Other than that, there are two other reasons why this story is a good read: 1) An attention to the fact that Hank is aging, so NYR better hurry. 2) Proves once-more that Christensen should be buried/bought out/whatever. Time to believe?

The Small Apple?


Bucci says the Rangers should rebuild now. I disagree.

Rangers Most Improved ?


That's what Robert Vollman at Puck Prospectus believes after he took a look at the advanced projection stats for the upcoming season. "The New York Rangers will fly up the standings from 21st to 8th, according to the predictions we published in Hockey Prospectus 2010-11. But does our assertion that the New York Rangers are the league's most improved team really stand up to objective analysis? Let's pop open the hood and see." If you're a numbers guy like me you'll really like the article and the prospect of it all coming true.

Blueshirts by the Numbers: Number 11;"The Captain" - Mark Messier

"First We Take Manhattan"


From one of my favorite hockey blogs outside of this one, Hockey or Die: "Derek Boogaard played less than 6 minutes per game in 2009-10, and he only dressed in 57 games with the Wild. Sather, apparently, has bigger plans for Boogaard on his roster. As the guys at Hockey Wilderness have pointed out, Boogaard would make $4707 per minute with his new deal based on his totals from last season. What could possibly (dementia) have convinced Sather that the same problems his club faced with Donald Brashear wouldn’t resurface with Derek Boogaard?"

Random Thoughts: Putting Numbers to Names and Tim Connolly


A look at potential point totals for the Rangers draft picks and if the Rangers should try and trade for Tim Connolly.

The Rangers have selected Dylan Mcilrath with the 10th pick in the draft. Good player, but is this what we really needed? Way to fill the scoring forward void/take the best pick available, Glen. A good summary: "Summary: Your assessment of this guy probably depends on how you view his skating. It's not a huge negative for me, but it's not unreasonable to think his pivoting and backward stride are a serious red flag. But I saw a fair bit of improvement in his skating, and there should be more of that to come. I think his offense will come around and let him be at least a good #4. But even in the absolute worst case, if you have to convert him to a 3rd/4th line right wing enforcer, he's going to be a guy that other teams wish they had." - Michael Remmerde
