Sorry about that

We apologize for the technical problems.

I still have no idea what  happened, but obviously something did.

Sorry.

—————————–

I was thinking last night, as we post the finalists for the major awards each day, that I haven’t heard much from my Boneheads about the awards — except for the Vezina, and the usual distaste for a certain No. 30 who plays not far from MSG.

Now, I know you guys are smarter than a lot of NHL GMs (they vote for the Vezina). And I’m sure you are smarter than a lot of the broadcasters (they vote for the coach of the year). I doubt you are smarter than sportswriters (just kidding) who vote for everything else.

But I am curious about your thoughts on the big awards: The Hart (MVP), Calder (rookie), Norris (defenseman) and Adams (coach).

By the way, I will be out working, so I won’t be able to post today’s finalists. You guys can feel free to get them at NHL.com at noon or so and put them in the comments. Usually I’d count on Laurel in a situation like this, but she’s out partying, probably at some Blackjack table as we speak, in Vegas.

——————————–

Thought for today: Is there anything dumber than all these mock NFL drafts that everybody does? I mean, have you ever seen one that was really close the the actual way the first round transpired? I haven’t.

  1. Oh, good. We are back. Started to worry. I honestly had no clue there even is a mock NFL draft lol.

  2. My thoughts on the NHL awards as mentioned above:

    Hart- Henrik Sedin, carried the Canucks to a high seed.
    Calder- Matt Duchene.
    Norris- Drew Doughty, maybe Keith, but I just like the way Doughty plays.
    Adams- Dave Tippett of Phoenix, not even close in my eyes.

  3. NYRanger4Life on

    Error, I mean Ecklund, is reporting that Risebrough will be named the next GM of the Rangers and that Slats is being shuffled to another position.

  4. Carp, no offense, but didn’t you just post about a mythical Rangers playoff series? And isn’t this site usually filled with speculation and fantasy lineups?

    It may be stupid, but that’s sports fandom (and sports writing, especially in this all-consuming 24 hour internet world).

  5. TheREALMikeyNJ on

    Repost, I got carped

    Oh Please Let Eklund be right for once!!

    Chasing a rumor this morning from an A1 source…It is looking like Doug Risebrough could be the next GM of the NY Rangers. According to my source, Sather would be moved to a “new” position in the organization.

    Moving Sather out would not be much of a surprise given the past decade or so, however bringing in Doug Risebrough wouid be an interesting departure for the Blue Shirts. I really like Doug as a GM, however he is widely looked at as one of the most conservative/stand pat GMs in the league…quite the opposite of the NY Rangers M.O.. Could Doug shange hos ways and make the sorts of mood this ownership requires? We will see…

  6. Eklund is like a car accident, you can’t help but look there. I am as guilty of it as anyone else, but how often is he really right? Ha, I hope he is this time, and this is not the first time this has been reported.

  7. i know its great having sam(rangers), and billy(isles) doing the versus game last night and wish we could trade joe for bill. it also sucks for ny hockey that we gotta hear sam get all excited about a boston goal too. sathers gotta go and the isles need to start winning too. i wanna see ny back in it. just like in 94!!! is that the last time we faced teh isles in the playoffs???

  8. Could Doug shange hos ways and make the sorts of mood this ownership requires? We will see…

    WTF WAS THAT??? SHANGE HOS?? IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE CHANGE HIS?

  9. i would love it if he didnt overspend. why is this a problem? maybe dolan saw this as good thing. no more redden type mistakes. face it the more you go out on a limb to sign guys like kovalchuk or bure or gabby, you take huge risk in overpaying and in bure and gabbys case, the possibility of their injuies coming back to haunt them and this is what we wanted from sather. discretion. bring on the penny pincher. i dont give a flying carcillo. we already have plenty of kids that could be up on teh big club. screw the fa market unless we get volchenkov!!! big scary ugly mean bloodthirsty maniac on skates!! yes!! give us one of those, no more soft overpaid figure skaters who cherry pick

  10. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    Spectors is reporting that the russian hammer may not be resigned by the sens because he could be looking at 5 mil per year…..i’d still take him!

  11. i want a kesler type on our team. big power fwd who breaks through teams d men and drives the net. if duby would gain 20 lbs of muscle and shoot up, he coul;d be that guy. duroidsky would be great if he was on the juice!! haha j/k. we dont need him tackling gabby afetr a goal and breaking his 80 year old grandma hips

  12. as soon as doug triborough signs a guy like greg zanon and sends wade to pasture is the day i drive to ny and pick up wade and drive him back to iowa where he can start a hockey for zombies school.

  13. we got 2 puck movers in dz and sangs. you could say staal is more of an offensive type than he was. we need to make staal into a monster. then get volchenkov. and give sangs rozys spot.

  14. ohh ilbzo, i’ll give u my report cards and in depth analysis today. so get your trifocals, some hot pockets, an adult diaper and your lucky chara jersey to ward off any evil cr9 spirits!

  15. Good morning, Carp! Up at the crack of noon today…

    Wicky, how excited would the little wickster be if the Rangers signed the Russian Hammer?

    Grabby, I agree, it’d be great to have a Kesler type on our team.

  16. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    Grabby
    I agree about the big guy grabby MZA isn’t going to cut it obviously. Holmstrom is a free agent, but he is getting up there in years and is more of a front of the net guy. Armstrong is a free agent in ATL I believe. Iggy could be had from calgary perhaps……It just sucks because the rangers just suck at drafting physical d men and physical forwards (they always pass on them to take puck movers or little guys, the one time they do they should have taken the little guy…..parise). Not sure who else is out there yet, but we do need to get bigger!

    I hope we both get resigned!!!!

  17. I would go with Miller for Hart, Duchene for Calder, I am not sure for Norris, and Tippett for Adams. Green will probably win the Norris just because he has the most points, but he isn’t the best defenseman. Keith, Doughty, and Pronger were all the most well rounded this year.

  18. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    Sally
    Oh man, tell me about it!!!

    Spector also said the caps would be very interested in him (duh), but might have to focus on resigning backstrom….

    Grabby
    adult diaper….LMFAO!!!!

  19. “Eklund is like a car accident, you can’t help but look there. I am as guilty of it as anyone else, but how often is he really right? Ha, I hope he is this time, and this is not the first time this has been reported.”

    Nobody listens to him. We just have to hear about the people like you who talk about him.

  20. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    We need to get ulfie in here to coach whenever the coyotes get done!!!!

    We should draft buek”s son in th esecond round this draft!

  21. Myers, Duchene and Howard are the Calder finalists. Thought I’d post them since Carp has the nerve to be out working today!

  22. >>Oh Please Let Eklund be right for once!!
    >>Chasing a rumor this morning from an A1 source…

    Mike, are you sure Eklund didn’t write “A1 sauce”?

  23. >>Matt Duchene

    I wonder what the boys call him in the locker room. “Duchy/Duch/Doosh”?

  24. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    this is a bit off course here, but the first round of the nfl draft is tonight so….I will HATE al davis forever for trading gruden!!!!

  25. Wicky are you ready for tonight??? LOL

    Hart- Henrik Sedin
    Calder- Tyler Myers
    Norris- Duncan Keith
    Adams – Tippett

  26. http://www.startribune.com/blogs/91715969.html

    GM Chuck Fletcher wanted to give Thompson plenty of time to move on, and frankly, the Wild is so convinced Thompson will be employed by future Lightning or Rangers or xxx GM Doug Risebrough any day now, the team won’t include Thompson in any meeting in an interest to protect their internal info when it comes to its draft list.

  27. i wouldnt be shocked if this was posted before eks stuff. he could be right. there have been some talks by sather himself to risebrough apparently.

  28. dangle a year at Shelley, Christensen, and/or Prust and get Prospal down for 2 years STAT!

  29. Hart Nominees:
    Ovechkin, Crosby, H. Sedin
    Vezina:
    Brygaloz, Brodeur, Anderson
    Norris:
    Keith, Pronger, Weber

    Winners: Sedin, Bryzagloz, Keith

    and on Calder, surprised Del Zotto or Tavares weren’t nominated. Jimmy Howard? No way

  30. ALL HAT - NO CATTLE on

    Risebrough may be a good GM, if he does take over the position here, my one concern is the absolutely dreadful tenure here of another career Montreal Canadien, John Ferguson, starting with the insane, slmost subversive Rick Middleton giveaway, and the sabotaging of the Rangers traditional uniforms, in favor of a Bad News Bears mockery of style and sartorial substance. Can we just find someone with a background in our own organization to take the reins? Oh, right, Maloney got away.

  31. “Jimmy Howard? No way”

    Dude Jimmy Howard was the man and the main reason the Wings are in this.

    That said GO COYOTES!

  32. I would probably go with the unpopular pick (for this site) and give the Hart to Crosby.

    Shea Weber for the Norris. Pronger? Are you kidding me?

    Coach? Tom Renney. hahahahahaha. Tippett has to get it or else it’s fixed.

  33. Risebrough was not a good GM in Minny. he was a failure there, and the fans were ecstatic when he was dumped.

    besides, he is a good friend of Vinik, the guy who just bought the Tampa Lightning, and is rumored to be taking over the GM job there. they can have him. he is also the guy who did NOT re-sign Gaborik. so that tells you about his work in Minny.

  34. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    NYG

    nervous as hell!!!!

    noonan
    got to lock up prust for 3 to 4 and shelley for 2, prospal probably needs to go if for no other reason than to get a bigger plower forward a roster spot.

  35. TheREALMikeyNJ on

    Id odnt beleive Eklunds rumors for on eminute
    but I do read htem, like NAsty, looking at a car accident

    BUT, anyone, and I mean ANYONE will be a better GM of the NYRangers than Glen Sather

    10 years is long enough with this bozo

  36. H. Sedin, Myers, Doughty, Tippet are my choices.

    Something tells we may hate Risebrough more than Slats.

    I think if we are paying Roszival $5 mil per year, Volchenkov is clearly worth the same. And don’t get me started on that other fellow who makes $6.5 mil.

    “Wicky” (aka Shelley) is worth under $800.000 over one or two years(if he insists), but then I’d also make him our team spokesman.
    “Mike” (aka Prust) I believe could be tendered but may be resigned for 2-3 years at $650.000 or so. Those are valuable guys.

  37. I just found myself drooling all over the possibility of tonight being the last Devils game. I really hate Flyers, but the vision of Marty’s last handshake with Carcillo AT THE ROCK is much more precious. Man, I will never mature…..

  38. why not hire Jay Feaster as GM. he already has worked with Torts in Tampa, and they won a cup there. every week I see Feaster on NHL Live, and he sounds like a very reasonable, thoughtful guy with a good personality who actually will speak to the press and fans and treat the fans with respect, unlike Darth Sather.

    he would be the best choice imo

  39. Ahh, back in business, I see.

    Thought for the day: Chris Drury won’t let not making the playoffs ruin his Earth Day.

  40. I am upset with the fact that the Chi-Nash series is a game behind the other series. that could mean a delay after the other first round series are over. one of the big problems last year was the long delays between rounds that took away the momentum, excitement, and carryover enthusiasm

    I understand that some series will go 7 games and others will not. that is unavoidable. but if we have to wait 2 extra days for the end of one series when the others are over becuase of scheduling, and it takes 4 or 5 days between rounds again,well that is unacceptable.

  41. Each playoff game I watch I am reminded how bad the rangers suck..

    A goalie like Hank watching the playoffs….trade him now and let him win somewhere…This ship is sunk.

  42. My picks for the awards:

    Hart- Sedin
    Vezina- Byzgalov
    Norris- Keith
    Calder- Myers
    Adams- Tippet

  43. Watching Miller in net reminds me of Lundqvist and the Rangers. He is doing all he can to help his team.

  44. Hart – Henrik Sedin

    Vezina – Ryan Miller

    Norris – Drew Doughty

    Calder – Tyler Myers

    Adams – Joe Sacco

    Dave Tippet could easily win coach of the year, and deserves it, but that team does have some talent, and some leadership, and a capable goalie. He did a great job, but i think Sacco deserves it, cause the Avs were supposed to finish dead last, and it was a team full of kids, with a few talented players, and a goalie who was for the most part, a no-name goalie.

    I think Sacco deserved it a little more than Tippet.

  45. Hey Carp, Mamma and Boneheads!

    wow! these playoffs have been great so far…high scoring, monster hits, fights, I don’t remember so may playoff fights in recent years.
    Redden for the Greyhound award…straight to Wolf Pack.

  46. billybleedsblue on

    Carp– I know this is from yesterday, but, I feel the Rangers could be up 3-1 against the Debbies, for sure. There are a lot of ifs involved, like Avery, and how well Hank would play, but the short answer is YES. They could at LEAST be tied 2-2 if it was them and not the Flowers.

    Hahaha, very good Sally with the I vote Lindy Ruff’s Mustache for the Adams.

    Last night, I had a dream that I was at game seven of the cup finals and the Rangers had just scored the go-ahead goal, and then I woke up all upset that I didn’t realize that I was JUST DREAMING.

  47. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    mark me down as a “ditto” for ilb’s post at 1443hrs.

    and add miller for the vezina!!

    Bonehead awards would be funny!!!

  48. According to TSN, that has flipped recently. As the Rangers went 29-30-10 with Avery in the line-up and 8-3 without this season.

  49. wicky (in Prust we Trust!!!!) on

    that tsn stat makes sense due to the way torts yanks him around a bit. It would be interesting to see the record of the games avery was in that he played like “pre torts” avery and the record of those with the “torts leash” version of avery!!!!

  50. That would be miiiiight interesting, wicky. If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d do the math myself. With a calculator, of course.

  51. Sally, is your email on your fb page? I have a Dubi pic I think you’d like, but I’m not too keen on posting it on the boneheads fb page.

  52. i agree orr. tippet and sacco both did great jobs so far. i think since the yotes finished higher, setting a franchise record, tippet might have the edge.

  53. how bout an award for most anti boston and homo erotic posts in the last month. i know this category is gonna be a tight race and teh x factor could be the deciding factor, but im giving a slight edge, a very slight edge to our very own bonerhead….. drum roll …… cr9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes i know!! who wouldve seen this comin!!

  54. the memorial joe “thick forearm”michelletti award goes to……… cr9!!!!!! thats his 2nd straight award win!!! man hes really sucking the competition dry!!!

  55. LMAO @ the memorial joe “thick forearm”michelletti award!!!!

    Mickey, yeah it’s on there. I’m so nervous though…

  56. Sally, cool beans. I’ll dig it and the pic up later this evening and send it to you. It’s not anything bad, honest. I REALLY do think you’ll like it though :)

  58. Carp, I just thought it was funny that you point out how silly mock drafts are when we talk about so many speculative things on this site (including your last post).

  59. I think Tony would get the Masterson. That’s the award for dedication and perseverance, usually given to a player that has come back from a bad injury.

    They’re still stupid is right Carp. Not to mention the fact that all of this NFL DRAFT speculation floods the mainstream media while all of this AMAZING post-season hockey is largely over-looked. Being a hockey fan, I realize that I am in a minority of sports fans. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s nauseating how much an off-season NFL DRAFT dominates an amazing battle for the oldest and most difficult (and most prized [to some]) trophy in all of professional sports–Lord Stanley’s Cup.

    Well, isn’t that great news? Hank is hurt? Oh boy. I don’t even want to think of how bad things would be without him between the pipes.

  80. “Well, isn’t that great news? Hank is hurt? Oh boy. I don’t even want to think of how bad things would be without him between the pipes.”

    Jesus. He’s been run into way too many times this year. We need a big Dman who can take care of business all day.

    And remember the 2nd to last game against Philly after he was not being denied the victory by those punks after getting run into and hacked int he facemask (via Asham)? He gave all he had left in the tank. It’s amazing it went to a shootout the last game. DAMNIT this sucks…

  81. >>Anybody watch that show “V”? That alien chick is pretty hot.

    Yeah, I want me some lizard too.

  82. billybleedsblue on

    Ugh, I picked Flowers in 6, not in 5. ARRRRrrrrrgh. Oh well. It would be nice to see the Devils lose at home, for sure. But what difference does it make? My heart says I want the series to go to 7 and for both teams to just pummel each other to a pulp, and who cares who wins? Just care that they destroy each other!

  83. >>weak D Debbies. they are so dunzo

  84. Good evening, Sally!

    You climb ever higher on my list when you go to the Beavis and Butthead lines. The movie was on the other night. One of the great movies of all time.

  85. I don’t think Tony is the oldest.

    As for Hank’s injury, Yours Truly had this item in his break-up day quote marathon, April 13:

    “(Lundqvist) some issues with his knees and hip, so doesn’t know about World Championships.”

  86. CR, here’s an announcement for you, from the NBA:

    NEW YORK, April 22, 2010 — Boston Celtics forward Rasheed Wallace has been fined $35,000 for publicly criticizing game officials, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

    Wallace was fined for comments made to the media on April 19.

  87. Carp you owe me a response for that NBA post. Does Tortorella dress like that on purpose?

  88. Carp, you got my Beavis and Butthead reference! You’re still the awesomest!

    Billy, my friend put up some pictures on facebook of me making weird monster faces to celebrate the Sabres win last week. Funny… but not pretty.

  89. billybleedsblue on

    Carp, I missed that bit about Hank when you posted it…man, it’s tough to think about. The team, while not really centered around him, depends on his success to win most games. I shudder to think about him not being healthy.

    I also watched a bunch of Beavis and Butthead the other night. I don’t get out much these days :/

  90. CR9 (Teddy Ballgame's head has dents from the monkey wrench beating it took) on

    Carp

    What the hell is that supposed to mean??

    If you were trying to prove something, which I’m not sure why you’d be trying to attack me or my point of view, you should have mentioned Kevin Garnett being suspended for Game 2 of the Celtics series against the Heat.

    The NBA actually did something fairly. Am I supposed to praise that?

    That should be expected.

  91. billybleedsblue on

    Right now, I am flipping between the hockey and Tropic Thunder on cable. I’ve seen this movie about a dozen times, and it keeps gettin’ funnier, EVERY TIME I SEE IT!
    Sally, right on. I’m not even going to bother looking for them, on account that I don’t FB…prolly can’t see them anyways.

  92. CR9 (Teddy Ballgame's head has dents from the monkey wrench beating it took) on

    RIGHT BACK!!!

    PENS DOWN 2-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  93. Does Chico ever stop whining? How does this guy keep his job? I will never complain about Joe M. again

  94. Like I said, put a fork in the devils, there done. Typical devils, win the division and look like a good team in the regular season and than get knock out in the first round.

  95. >>Does Chico ever stop whining? How does this guy keep his job?

    He just said, “Now, I’m gonna sound like a homer, but the Flyers are getting all the bounces.”

  96. I hear “Booooosh” with every Boucher save. Flyers fans probably outnumber Devils.

  97. what a piece of garbage Kovalsuck is. guarantees a win, and then plays his usual halfhearted effort. and his teammates obviously have no respect for him because they seem to be even more disinterested tonight than usual, almost as if they are saying “screw him” and his guarantee.

  98. billybleedsblue on

    The Devils have been terrible in the second period. This game is over but I’m going to watch it play out anyways. I want to see the handshake and possibly witness a meltdown occur, like I forget who said it here, but somebody mentioned Chico having one. That would be some good entertainment.

  102. now that ranger fans have seen kovalchuk you have to be happy that the rangers don’t have the cap space to sign him, he isn’t worth it.

  103. Totally agree. Kovalchuk is a loser and if the Rangers ever were able to clear the cap space and sign him to a big deal it would be another huge disaster

  104. Besides we already have a winner signed to a big contract. You know who I’m talking about

  105. There’s something about Kovalchuk that just rubs me the wrong way. I do not like him at all.

  106. billybleedsblue on

    Agree about Kovalchuk…he’s not the real-deal. Man, it’s gotta be rough knowing that you only have 20 minutes left in your season! Man, I can’t stand Stan Fischler most of the time. Somebody please shut him up. Oh, thank you mute.

  107. noonan, sorry, i forgot what you asked … about Tortorella dressing that way on purpose?

    I think, yeah, that’s how he dresses.

  108. billybleedsblue on

    Carp, I have better things to do with my time. :D Also, who wants to engage in a battle of wit with an unarmed opponent?

  109. I wonder if the “local” news will bash the Devils, or if the “local” people will care. I guess Chico is just “loco”

  110. After the Devils fire Chico they should fire their public address announcer. He’s another annoying moron

  111. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Next season ,plz!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Lou Lammourella or how ever you spell that creepy looking weirdo from the Devils is a MORON.

    YOU DON’T sign an offensive spoiled brat to play on yer defensive minded team , your an idiot.

    Lou this ..Lou that , NJ is soooo good, That’s a crock.

    In all fairness to the Devils , Kovaljunk didnt deliver.

  112. Lou really blew it this year. Apparently he doesn’t go after those big name guys too often, like he did this past trade deadline, and it’s really gonne bite him in the ass.

    They need scorers, and Bergfors has a lot of talent. And the Black Swedish guy, Ooduya was pretty decent.

    Kovalchook was a total waste. I hope Bergfors goes on to be a 30+ goal scorer.

    And i hope Broduer gains another 50 lbs after this los. Bwahaha!

    Chico with the non stop whining. Keep it going!

  113. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Next season ,plz!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Feels good watching the Devil CHOKE!!!

    Mike Richards
    Chris Pronger
    The creep who scored on us (Gir..X)
    Carter
    Blair Betts

    are all quality guys.

    Flyer will win now but wil lose later cuz they suck as well.
    Good job Phithy Philly , this series ya did deserve.

  114. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Next season ,plz!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Lou got lucky with draft picks. If he came to the Rangers , he would be exposed as Sather has.

    Lou Lam is a sham.

    Nice guy but hes a goof.

    Great night for new york sports fans.

    Where’s Ricky idiot Martin2? And Fly Line? And all the other major carcillo-heads who come here talking carcillo?!

    Marty does it again! Best goalie EVERRRRR!

  120. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    Orr,
    I like Carcillo the same way I like Avery. Great guy to have on your team, you hate/respect that when he’s on the opposing team. I would take him in a heartbeat and wrote that exact statement on this blog 2, maybe 3 years ago.

    Josh Gratton looks like a bigger sean avery type kind of aquisition – trying to stir up the team a little bit. I wish the Rangers would’ve actually gotten Carcillo from the Coyot’s … his profile:
    “Assets: Could become the next Sean Avery. Has shift-disturbing qualities and the ability to drop the gloves against anyone. Is a solid hitter, as well.”
    “Flaws: Could become the next Sean Avery.”

  122. billybleedsblue on

    I can’t stop watching the Debbies coverage. I am lol’ing at this dribble! Oh well, this is what the season has come to for me. The Rangers don’t make it, so I get to laugh at these clowns. How depressing. Let’s go Rangers? :/

  123. Yeah, i was saying the same thing after every trade with Phoenix, we should have gotten Carcillo.

    He’s a tougher Avery. I’d take him in a heartbeat.

    Rutuu is a whole other story though. I hate him like i hate Brash*t. I couldn’t accept him, and wouldn’t accept Rutuu.

    I’d take Tootoo too. The fans need a new chant. I’m sick of “Potvin Sucks”. I want the whistles that the fans get in Nashville!

  124. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Next season ,plz!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Yeah Truefans , I said sweep, If ya wanna make a prediction or bet …always pick the team I don’t.

    Kova-chump for that young prospet Commier..what a waist.

  126. Ottawa just got effed over with that no-goal call in OT. i bet bettman was on the phone with video replay judge assuring Crosby doesn’t lose.

  127. >>Did Kovalchook really guarantee a win?

    ORR, this is from an article on Yahoo.

    When I asked him today, Kovalchuk said he isn’t thinking about the fact that this could be his last game in a Devils sweater.
    “No. Because we’re going to win tomorrow,” he said.

  128. Devils trading for a high prize player and giving up some young talent, ala Rangers, and going out in 5 games- priceless.

    Well, Ilya now can add 1 playoff win and an EN goal to his resume. Should be good for $10 mil per year long term, no?

    Lou Lam is Sham

    Fat old Marty should RETIRE.

    Scott Stevens,Scott Neidamayer Gionta and Gomez are gone , party is over.

    Get your sick , pathetic fans , all two of ’em off this blog.

    Ask Sather, he’s dumb enough to do it…

  131. That was the right call by the “War Room”. You can’t have a goal scored like that. It might not have been a full on kicking motion, but he was going full speed towards the puck. Good call.

    Definitely not a re-direction.

    And Kovalchook should have kept his mout shut. Maybe some Cool Ranch Doritos can do the trick next time he’s in the playoffs.

  132. Olga Folkyerself on

    Your players are gonna be golfing tommorow.

    They can’t. The Rangers scheduled all the tee times…

  133. billybleedsblue on

    Ha. you guys crack me up. Olga, you know, Sather’s assistants that read this blog might take you seriously and approach him with a “great idea.” If they sign him, I BLAME YOU! haha. BTW, I’m STILL watching Debbies post-game. HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa. Ugh. This is all I have? Thanks Rangers. Thanks a lot.

  134. billybleedsblue on

    Kovalchuk interviewed now by STAN THE MAN…bet he doesn’t call him out for the prediction.

  135. Olga, I’m sure some of the Rangers will be happy to let the Devils play a few rounds. Some of them could be tired swinging by now anyway.

    Haha Billy- I wrote a thousand times “FIRE SATHER”. Why didn’t they take THAT back to him?

  138. billybleedsblue on

    I haven’t had this much fun in a losing season, ever. I’ve gotta take my hat off to this blog, I feel like some of us should get together and make our own show on the Rangers and hockey in general. It couldn’t be much worse than some of the clowns that are out there getting paid.

    I have to admit…there is something that I like about Jacques Lemaire. If the Debbies fired him right now (I doubt this happens) would anyone want to see him behind the bench for the Blueshirts?

    I feel kind of bad for the Devs.

  142. Rangers next season shopping:
    – add Volvhenkov, Exelby and Skoula to D
    -trade Gilroy to Chicago for Sharp
    -let girardi walk
    -buyout redden
    -trade roszival for a pick
    -sign Stempniak

    Gaborik-Sharp-Stempniak
    Callahan-Anisomov- Dubinsky
    Avery-Drury- rookie
    Prust/rookie Boyle- Shelley

    D
    Staal, Volcheknkov
    Del Zotto, Skoula
    Exleby, Potter/ rookie

    how does that look?

  143. Yeah, i was in favor of Kovalchook, but not anymore.

    I’m not even in favor of Gabby at this point.

    I think we should just trade everyone, and bring up the Wolf Pack for the next few years, and re-build through the draft.

    If Hank isn’t in favor of that, then trade him to the Leafs for their next two first round picks, and go with Ocho Cinco!! When he’s done Dancing.

  144. >>How is that not a penalty on Letang? He never even got the fuggin puck. Stupid blind
    >>refs.

    Yeah, I wasn’t happy about that non-call. And the stupid announcers kept saying he got the puck first, even though the replays show otherwise.

  145. Olga Folkyerself on

    If Hank isn’t in favor of that, then trade him to the Leafs for their next two first round picks, and go with Ocho Cinco!! When he’s done Dancing.

    I stand corrected, Sather is NOT the worst possible choice for GM.

  146. What happened Olga, i thought you were skipping my posts? Got bored with that? I knew talking to yourself wasn’t gonna last long, and you didn’t want to resort to making names again, hahahaha.

    “-trade roszival for a pick”

    Hahaha, i can’t even trade him for a 5th round pick in NHL10. What GM would sacrifice a draft pick for him in real life?

  147. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Next season ,plz!!! " … says Greg L. on

    ORR , Now ya thinking. Dump EM ALL.

    Hank the Tank ,Gaborik the brick ,Redden from dead ,Rozi the pilon.

    If Drury is not stripped of the C then I’d say booo that clown.

    Wolf pack kids are like little dubies!!!

  148. >>I’m not even in favor of Gabby at this point.

    All I know is, he’s not the player to take us to the promise land. He’s a sniper that doesn’t snipe too often when the marking gets tight on him. He might get his 30+ goals, but will never be a major factor in the playoffs.

    That’s exactly what i mean. He has a carp load of talent, but he obviously can’t take his game to the next level when it matters most.

    I was in favor of signing him to a one or two year deal last summer, cause i was nervous that he could get injured again, but at this point i really can care less aboot him. I was done with him when he chose to play that meaningless Bronze medal game, risking further injury. What a selfish butt-chin dork he is.

    I feel bad for Hank. I only want to trade him so he has a legitimate shot at winning a Cup. If you love something, set it free!!

  166. chuk schreier on

    HART- Henrik Sedin carried the Canucks and is still underrated if he was as popular as Ovechkin or Crosby he would run away with it
    Calder- Tyler Myers over Duchenne because Myers became the go to defenseman for the Sabres and was out there in every situation
    Norris- Keith over Green because it includes playign defense also and over Doughty because just because
    Jack Adams- No comeptition Dave Tippet for what Phoenix was supposed to be he really did a remarkable job and Joe Sacco get second place

  167. From a Devils fan:

    “Well if Game 5 wasn’t bad enough after the game I found out that my wife’s car had been broken in to. Worse yet is the Newark Cops didn’t want me to file a report and said they wont even investigate it. I had to badger them just to write something up. I know a few people that have told me before that the Cops try and persuade people from reporting crimes to make the area seem safe even when it’s not at all!!!!

    Good Job Vanderbeek!!! You suckered the city in to building us an arena and now you have Booker and the Cops in your pocket!”

  168. was at the king canuck game last night. 6 rows from the penaly box. very entertaining game. went to the 2nd to last game at msg this year against the leafs… msg is mouder then the staples because so much more empty space at the newer arenas.
