This was going to be a story about how the New York Rangers were in a rebuild. It was going to be a story about how winning was not going to solve the team's long-term goals.

Well, a funny thing happened along the way: the guys on the ice continue to play well despite some glaring shortcomings. Perhaps the Rangers are following the path of the New York Yankees, who rebuilt quickly over one trade deadline.

The Rangers continued their strong start Monday evening with a 4-2 win over the Ottawa Senators in front of the MSG faithful. As we are now past the quarter point of the season, the Blueshirts hold a playoff spot with a 13-10-2 record. There are still over 50 games left in the season, but teams in a playoff spot by Thanksgiving have over a 60 percent chance of making the playoffs.

6:09PM: Alain Vigneault said on Thursday:

  • On Kevin Hayes, "he is a game time decision. This is the best that he has felt, we will talk with Rammer and the doctors and see how he feels coming back tonight and make it a game time decision."
  • Is there urgency to get Hayes back, "he will play tonight if he can play. If he can't play and there is a chance that this goes sideways then we won't play him. At the end of the day, if he feels that he is good to go, he definitely helps our team and will play."

3:54PM: Alain Vigneault said that Kevin Hayes will be a game time decision for tonight's game in San Jose. (NYR)

Hayes spoke with the media after today's morning skate and said:

  • Status for tonight, "still have to talk to a couple of people and we will make a decision from there."
  • On how he is feeling, "much better, this is the best I have felt since that Vegas trip."
  • Are you ready to go, "yea."
  • Does the urgency of where the team is make an impact, "not too much. We are in a little rut right now but as an athlete, you don't want to put yourself at risk at anytime. When you feel you are ready to play you go back and play."
  • "That is the biggest question. You play when you feel you won't be limited. I felt pretty good out there today. I'll be talking to people pretty soon and have a decision soon."
  • What has been the most difficult, "it sucks not playing, you want to play all 82 games. You want to be part of a team, but we thought we could do some stuff for that second game back from Vegas and it just didn't go well. You never want to be watching from above when you think you can help that team and hopefully I will get that chance."
  • Do you regret playing that game, "no."
  • Are you a game time decision, "I think I'll know before game time./"

All three of Jimmy Vesey, Kevin Hayes and Jesper Fast scored for the Rangers on Saturday against the Predators.

From the Rangers Game Preview for tonight's game against San Jose, "over the last two contests, each of the three players has posted a plus-four rating or better (Hayes - plus-five; Vesey - plus-four; Fast - plus-four), and each player has also registered at least two points (Hayes - two goals, one assist; Vesey - one goal, one assist; Fast - one goal, one assist)."

Alain Vigneault said last week that the trio is a "hard working line" where Fast and Vesey get in on the forecheck and create turnovers and that Hayes complements them well.

Kevin Hayes was named the number one star and awarded the Broadway Hat after today's win over Nashville.

Hayes spoke after the game on MSG and said:

  • On his line, "the last few games we have been good, we try to keep it simple in the D zone and don't cheat. If we play good D we can generate some offense and tonight I thought we did that."
  • On Vesey and Fast, "those two guys, you know what you are going to get. They are honest players, work hard and don't mind hitting guys. When they are getting on the D like that it generates a lot of open space and tonight we could have buried a lot more chances, we had good possession in the offensive zone."
  • On his goal, "I got some speed and their D was standing flat footed, it's not often that I beat guys wide but tonight it happened and luckily it went in."
  • On the win, "it's big. We have been struggling and to play 60 minutes and get two points in front of our fans, hopefully it's a spring board to a lot of other things."

While writing about the center position and potential moves this offseason, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers could try and use Derek Stepan to land a top-pair right defenseman. (NY Post)

Moving Stepan would also allow the Rangers to give Oscar Lindberg a bigger role at center as well as protect him in the expansion draft. (NY Post)

Brooks notes that potentially moving Kevin Hayes, as opposed to Stepan, likely wouldn't bring "close to the yield" that the Rangers could get for Stepan. (NY Post)

He writes that Lindberg has been under-utilized so far in his time with the Rangers and that it would be a "shame" to lose him in the expansion draft because of limited ice time. (NY Post)
