So it’s another off-day. Byfuglien! This is horrible waiting for games.
So I thought I’d start off with a couple of little conversations readers brought up yesterday, which probably deserve to be discussed a bit more:
1) The worst and best Rangers trades of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.
2) Since Cam Neely retired (or, if you prefer, all-time) the best power forwards in the game.
Chime in if you like. Or, as always, discuss whatever you want to discuss.
Here’s a Canadiens By The Numbers from NHL.com, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Habs, the Yankees of hockey.
I just wanted to tell y’all that our traffic numbers the past three or four days have been pretty good. We had an awful November compared to last November, and I wrote that off for two reasons: The Yankees took up the first week of the month in the World Series, and those two long gaps in games, including the stretch of 3 in 13 days. But obviously, some of it is because we don’t cover the Rangers on a daily basis the way we did when Sam was here (I spoke with him yesterday, by the way, and he says Hi!).
Anyway, to start December we’re climbing back up, and that’s good because we need numbers for the suits here to allow me to spend some of my work week doing this. So come early, come often, and as Babu said, “Tell your friends.” Seriously, if you know people who follow the Rangers and aren’t regulars here, tell them to come here. How’s that for a shameless recruiting message?
