Rangers Name Callahan New Captain.

The New York Rangers today announced forward Ryan Callahan had been named their new team captain. Defenseman Marc Staal and center Brad Richards have been named alternates.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Good moves by the Rangers. 


  1. Unsurprising. Callahan led by example the last two seasons, seems like a fine replacement. Staal is their number 1 defender, and Tortorella already knows what Richards is capable of, on and off the ice.

  2. Good move by the NYR.

  3. Excellent!

  4. Sounds like good moves to me. Maybe they’re finally getting their act together in NY.

  5. Something I expected – Callahan reminds me of Drury.
