While Tony DeAngelo’s greater hockey future – in the NHL or otherwise – remains unclear after waivers are released, GM Jeff Gorton confirmed that DeAngelo played his last game for the New York Rangers

From there, Gorton and team president John Davidson discussed other reports and rumors about DeAngelo and his behavior towards Rangers teammates, from K’Andre Miller to Alexandar Georgiev

Understanding why the Rangers said goodbye to Tony DeAngelo requires looking through the details on and off the ice.Some might say the balance of his work on the ice (bad defense, good, but maybe not good enough insult) could no longer justify handling the off-ice stuff

Of course, many would argue that the Rangers DeAngelos should never have endured off-ice / interpersonal behavior

W / Tony DeAngelo’s NHL future up in the air, worth talking about how the New York Rangers have promoted & over the past 4 years despite knowing his history of racist comments The American elections are rigged

During Monday’s press conference, the Rangers gave their opinion on why they were moving on from Tony DeAngelo The Rangers’ discussion of DeAngelo’s sacking is more detailed

For example: The Rangers lag behind DeAngelo and react poorly to a healthy scratch in the early season From then on, a reported argument between DeAngelo and goalkeeper Alexandar Georgiev was the last straw

Gorton says DeAngelo was “unable to move on” after unsportsmanlike punishment because he was a healthy scratch for gms 2 3 of the season. “I told him if his name was on anything he would forego renouncement

Of course, Tony DeAngelo’s name has come up a lot on social media, including beyond his Watch Your Tone podcast. DeAngelo’s tendency to be offensive has long been known and dates back to before his time with the Rangers. For example: He was in the OHL suspended because he had pronounced blurring on his own teammate

It’s hard to imagine that such actions weren’t a “distraction” for the Rangers, but executives were reluctant to point out this as a problem with DeAngelo

John Davidson said the @NYRangers had “informal discussions” with Tony DeAngelo about his social media presence, but there is also “freedom of speech,” which is not the case here, but other forms of society actually exist

The overall message from the Rangers confirms the idea that DeAngelo was fired for not only toxic behavior, but the decline in the quality of his play, which opens the door to such criticism

The Rangers kept Deangelo on their roster for years because he was honestly a valuable defender, despite all his serious and troublesome problems, they committed themselves to him because they only cared about his impact on the ice, so how the NHL works and that is a big problem

The Rangers have taken steps to refute details of possible tension between DeAngelo and K’Andre Miller, originally reported by Adam Herman of blueshirt Banter Greg Wyshynski of ESPN shared John Davidson’s full comments:

The full statement from John Davidson, President of @NYRangers, to @BlueshirtBanter reports that Tony DeAngelo and K’Andre Miller did not get along and that DeAngelo stole the puck from Miller’s first NHL goal imageTwittercom / fEK40xnVUh

Ultimately, DeAngelo, Miller, and maybe other Rangers can only really know what happened and how much tension there was between the two. This thread delves into the situation and how the Rangers have dealt with certain disagreements in the media in the past / p>

(This thread even states that there are differences of opinion as to whether or not K’Andre Miller has broken off the fight between DeAngelo and Georgiev)

Wyshynski also notes that there is a lot of confusion about why there wasn’t a photo op with Miller and his first goal puck

Overall … this is all deep in the weed about a specific incident. Despite official comments from the Rangers, it wasn’t a single thing that pushed DeAngelo out the door – it wasn’t a single horrific tweet, hot take, or sales of bones >

And whatever the exact catalyst or catalysts the Rangers confirmed that DeAngelo’s days with the franchise are over, we’ll have to wait and see if DeAngelo ends up with another NHL team or trades elsewhere
