Entirely too many words on Ryan Malone and the Rangers

Multiple rumors suggest that the Rangers have engaged in talks with Ryan Malone regarding a training camp invite. The rumors make sense for a few different reasons. For starters, Ryan Malone once played for the Tampa Bay Lightning, which seems to mean something to Glen Sather (note: Glen does know that Malone was not part of the 2004 Cup winners, right?). But of more significance...

People might quibble with a move here or there, but many would agree that an already sneaky-good Tampa Bay Lightning team got quite a bit better this summer. Maybe that’s why head coach Jon Cooper seemed a little nervous about giving up that “sneaky” part while chatting with NHL.com. “Make us seem like just a nice, humble, go-lucky Tampa Bay Lightning,” Cooper said. “Not...

Ben Bishop: “I don’t want to be a one-hit wonder.”

Ben Bishop recently received a new two-year, $11.9 million extension from the Tampa Bay Lightning. The club rewarded Bishop with a hefty raise following his outstanding 2013-14, but they avoided making a long-term commitment with the goaltender.
