How far will the Rangers get this season?

Memorial Day Weekend Roundup

Brad Richards spent the weekend with Henrik Lundqvist and Sean Avery

We hope you all had great Memorial Day weekends!  Here’s a roundup of Rangers news you may have missed over the long weekend.

- Hockey’s Future has a look at the wealth of young talent the Rangers have in the CHL ranks.  The Blueshirts have really replenished their farm system in recent years thanks in large part to their collection of talent in the Canadian junior leagues and many of these youngsters will be on Broadway in short order.

- If you want to read about the status of the gutting of Madison Square Garden, click here and here. 

- This may be the best write up on Derek Boogaard’s death yet. 

- Unrestricted free agent to be Brad Richards spent the weekend with Sean Avery, Aaron Voros and Henrik Lundqvist.  That can’t be viewed as anything other than good news for those hoping to see Richards in blue, but don’t read too much into it.  Avery and Richards were teammates in Dallas, and many of these guys surely have friendships we don’t know too much about.  This was probably just a vacation among friends.  But again, it can’t hurt that the Rangers have ties to Richards.

- Larry Brooks speculates that if the Rangers miss out on Richards they might try to acquire Stephen Weiss from Florida.  Weiss’s numbers haven’t been great, but he is constricted by Florida’s dearth of offensive talent.  The Panthers have kept him despite trading many others over the last few years, so it’s tough to see why they’d make a move now.  Any trade would likely cost the Rangers a couple good prospects and a high pick at least.  Despite Richards’ age, he would cost New York nothing but cash.
