Hell with this line up they will be packing them in at the Garden for sure.

If it wasnt bad enough with the strike then the poor performance over the last 6 years. The Rangers will have to do a lot on the free agency market to bring in the fans.

You can take Jagr off the list since he will be bought out.

Well considering your an original 6 team and you play at MSG i dont think you have to worry too much about fans coming to the games.

I dont know about that the end of the last season they played MSG was awfully empty. You were able to get good seats on game day.

Yes but that was probably because the team sucked real bad and now with this new rules and new era of the NHL i'm sure the fans will comeback at leats for the start of the season. Plus i'm hearing the Rangers like always are after some big names in FA and this time i doubt that they will make a mistake by signing some washed up players.

This is the rangers were talking about right. They always sign overpriced deadbeats that suck the life out of the fans.

Yah but he wasnt alone with reguards to that. There have been a revolving door of coaches and GM's that have had a hand in that. :rollani:

He wants to stay with that Russian team he played with during the lockout to collect Abromovich's money. That greedy bastard.

NEW YORK (Ticker) - The New York Rangers' goaltending problems soon may be over.

The Rangers on Wednesday signed goal Al Montoya, the sixth overall pick in the 2004 Entry Draft.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Since Mike Richter suffered a concussion that limited him to 13 games in 2002-03 and forced him into retirement, the Rangers have struggled in goal. The problems continued when prospect Dan Blackburn developed a nerve problem in his shoulder that kept him sidelined for the entire 2003-04 campaign.

Montoya could prove to be the solution in the near future. The 20-year-old posted a 30-7-3 record and 2.52 goals-against average as a junior with the University of Michigan last season, leading the nation with 2,358 minutes played and recording a career-best shutout streak of 150 minutes, 1 second.

"Al is one of the top goaltending prospects in hockey and we are extremely pleased to have signed him," Rangers general manager Glen Sather said. "We feel this will be a big step for Al in advancing his development. He has been working extremely hard this summer and we are looking forward to seeing him on the ice at training camp in September."

The 6-1, 201-pound Montoya led the United States to the gold medal at the 2004 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship, posting two shutouts and a .944 save percentage in six games. He also represented the U.S. at the 2005 event, going 3-4 with a 3.36 GAA.

On Michigan's all-time list, Montoya is tied for first in save percentage (.908), third in shutouts (13), third in GAA (2.36) and fourth in wins (86).

Montoya is quality... I got to see him play a lot (I go to UM). He didnt have the greatest year last year but hes got the potential to be great.

Holik will go running back to NJ trust me.

Montoya i think is all right but Dipietro is better than he is if you ask me.


The Rangets never have to worry about sell outs 3/4 of the Rangets tickets are season tickets that corporations buy.

Philadelphia will be the toughest of the 5 and as far as New Jersey is concearned playing them in NJ is like a home game for us. With all 6 of their fans their the rest are all Ranger fans.
