Richter working for a healthy planet


OK, so Mike Richter caused some queasiness among Rangers fans when he appeared in Flyers owner Ed Snider’s box after Game 6 the other night.

And it sparked a little discussion on the Rangers’ goalie (the only one to win a Cup in the last 70 years, we might add). Some of that discussion was based on what Richter is doing, politically. Part of what he’s doing is saving the planet, which makes stopping Pavel Bure on a Cup finals penalty shot seem like blinking an eye.

Here’s a press release I received (you can go to the web site and read an op-ed piece Richter wrote a few months ago):


New Organization will promote health, clean energy and protecting the planet

NEW YORK (May 13, 2010) – Mike Richter, Stanley Cup and Olympic silver medal hockey goalie, today announced the launch of Athletes for a Healthy Planet, an organization of athletes dedicated to promoting a cleaner, healthier environment.

“Athletes recognize the special relationship between our health and the health of our planet,” said Richter. “We also know that clean energy and protecting the environment is about creating new jobs, building a stronger economy and protecting our national security.”

Richter is promoting the launch of Athletes for a Healthy Planet and its website,, this week on a nationwide radio tour.

“We are introducing Athletes for a Healthy Planet at an important moment,” Richter said. “This week U.S. senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) introduced new energy and climate legislation in the Senate. We will be working hard urging Americans to tell their Senators that our nation needs this critical legislation this year.

Mike Richter, a former National Hockey League (NHL) goalie, who helped lead the N.Y. Rangers to the Stanley Cup and the U.S. Olympic Hockey Team to a silver medal, is now a partner at Environmental Capital Partners, which invests in clean energy and new technology companies.

The impact of environmental change hit home for Richter, a father of three young sons, when he realized the frozen hockey ponds of his childhood had disappeared. Sports born in the outdoors now routinely are played indoors.

“No one has a greater stake in a cleaner, healthier planet than athletes,” said Richter.  “But the state of our planet affects everyone, rich or poor, liberal or conservative.  It is in everyone’s interest to understand the magnitude of the challenges and to work towards solutions. This is perhaps the defining issue of our time.”

Richter said Athletes for a Healthy Planet will capitalize on the celebrity status of athletes to serve as positive role models in “a nationwide effort to promote greater understanding of the direct relationship between the health of the planet and our health, economy, jobs, national security, social justice and quality of life.”


Anybody watching Game 7 tonight? The NHL has scheduled Game 1 of the Conference finals to begin Sunday, San Jose-Chicago at 3, Montreal at either Boston or Philly at 7.

    BTW, Carp, I received the book and it is a beautiful piece of work. Thank you. I wish I could pass along that sentiment to Mr. Halligan as well.

  2. Richter jersey……………………..$ 200
    Season tickets to 1994 Ranger Games…..$ 3,200
    Richter working to save the planet……$ worth a gazillion
    Stopping Bure on a penalty shot………$ priceless

    Sadly, there’s no medicine for this Ranger affliction.

  3. Richter is ridiculously well-spoken. Always like listening to him speak.

    I plan of flipping between Game 7 and the Mets game, though with Ollie pitching, the Mets game could be over early.

  4. What you don’t want to see Fernando Nieve enter in the 3rd inning Mickey?

    Perez is literally Rozsival and Redden combined (in terms of salary and ineptitude).

  5. Blue Seat Horror on

    Good Mafternoon all!

    Looking at the scoresheet, it’s the Peverly – Eberle show for team Canada today. That rhymes.

    Good to see Johnson getting a start.

  6. I dunno Carp, I bet Ollie could fire in limp wrist shots from the blueline like Redden. And I think Rozi could miss the strikezone as bad Perez.

  7. Blue Seat Horror on

    I think if Rozsival was batting he’d try to bunt every time, and succeed in connecting with the ball only 30% of the time. Of course he’d never make it to base with that blazing speed.

  8. CT, Nieve would come in during the 7th. After Takahashi went 3 and 1/3.

    Now *there’s* an idea- swapping Redden and Rozival for Ollie. Combined, R2 could be just as non-effective as pitchers as they are as Dmen and just thought of Torts trying to deal with Ollie makes me giggle.

  9. I think the perfect punishment for Captain Clutch would be to have him become a pitcher for the Mets.

  10. this canada game is a real downer. norway looked great in the first. chad johnsons mask is real nice.

  11. there could have been 1 right after they got the first goal but he didnt shoot. lol.

    hes been skating around people a bit which is very nice to see. handing the puck real well for some of this game.

  12. Blue Seat Horror on

    TR, were you watching when the match penalty was assessed. What happened?

  13. Blue Seat Horror on

    I said earlier that it was good to see Johnson get a start. I was looking at the live action sheet provided by the IIHF website. They’ve since amended it to Mason starting.

    Anyway, good to see Johnson getting some playing time.

  14. Don’t worry mama,
    Bruins will win despite their tailspin. Can’t ignore the very, very long odds of how few teams have climbed back from down 0-3. Take it from me, Bruins are a lock tonite.

    Then again, I had the Caps over Habs in 4, then Pens over Habs in 5. Maybe you shouldn’t take it from me.

  15. I’d say he’s fit in with the rest of the staff, CT. But for the most part, they’ve been pretty decent.

  16. thanks tr, i saw the tail end where they were talkin about johnson. love that he had his rangers mask on. gotta think hes gonna be our backup for next year. just dont see glen going out and getting a backup when goaltending is our main strength. he had a 24-8-2 record in hartford. i think hes ready. aulds a FA right?

    babs- girl i work with first name is avery. another girl i work with her first name is jessiman. spelled differently though. as long as we dont hire any 6’3″ girl with last name beukeboom i’ll be ok lol

  17. Blue Seat Horror on

    TR, why not? Did they flash to commercial when the rough stuff started like Versus does?

  18. was getting a little crazy so i walked away from PC (at that point it was 5 unanswered goals). there was no sound on that link the whole game.

    but their top goalie was suspended so it was kinda expected i suppose.

  19. Lucky? Lucky that they decided to focus on neutralizing Crosby and Malkin and let the other players on the Pens try to beat them? Lucky that they have the leading goal scorer in the playoffs on their team? Yes the Pens flopped big time, but the Habs still had to play at the other end of the ice when they weren’t surrendering 40+ shots a game. They had a good game plan and more importantly they executed it well.

  20. Blue Seat Horror on

    Yeah, I noticed Norway’s suspension problems. They must be the Flyers of the WHC.

    I’m with CT, you have to give Montreal some credit for making Pittsburgh look bad, especially in that game 7.

  21. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    frodo from modo!!! OMFG….that is frakking awesome bro!!

    I don’t know who the gm is for team canada, but he did one hell of a job, we could use him!

  22. if you look @ the goalies still left in the playoffs only nabby comes close to playing as much as lundqvist. we need a backup who can play 20 games give or take. no olympic break next year, no excuse. he cant and wount be tired at the end of the season next year.

  23. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    anyone else see mtl coach julien’s comments on ESPN….a very important phrase in there to rangers fans…….

    The biggest thing I know is, you go out there and you play to win,” said Julien, who opted not to have a morning skate Friday. “And sometimes they say the term, ‘Safe is death.’ If you want to play safe, it’s not going to help your chances of winning.”

    the twitter feed headline…..

    Julien’s attitude toward Game 7: ‘Safe is death’ –

  24. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    i meant bruins coach….sheesh…more coffee please!!

  25. CTBlueshirt on

    Agree, TR that Lundqvist will need more rest. However I think some of Torts reluctance to use the backup comes from the Rangers problems with scoring. If they had a team that could overcome the drop off in talent with more scoring I would think Torts would be more willing to use the #2 guy. In short, score more and that let’s Henrik get some rest.

  26. yea they were lucky that halak played so damn good. and that fleury gave up some of teh worst goals ive ever seen. they had a better gameplan that suited them because they wouldve lost if they run and gunned with caps or pens. of course they executed that plan very well. im not saying they are a fluke. im just saying yea,as good as cammy has been for them scoring,without halak,no gameplan wouldve worked against either of teh 2 teams they beat. martin is a great coach and yea,he definitely out coached bylsma and boudreau. so,despite the skill level differences,the habs have definitely earned to be where tey are right now. they were very good at frustrating the 3 best players in teh league and i give them props for being able to neutralize them. just goes to show how far goaltending can take you in teh playoffs.

  27. Tom Foolery on

    Safe is death sounds good in theory but you have to have forwards who can, you know, score and defensemen who can, you know, play defense for it to work. We lack both.

  28. Pretty hypocritical for a guy who spent 15 years flying all over north America. Athletes for a healthy planet… I guess they’ll all be taking public transportation to games next year ha

  29. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    oops, forgot again…afternoon everyone!!!

  30. Chris, and i guess they’ll be giving up their SUV’s and riding bicycles to practice eh?

  31. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    I hate to say it but the odds of the flyers coming back from 0-3 have changed to the odds of winning game seven on the road. The 0-3 odds disappeared when the flyers won 3 games in a row.

    0-3 doesn’t matter anymore. it’s 3-3.


  32. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    as long as the habs win it all, that’s all that matters!!

  33. Blue Seat Horror on

    I could see the call from Rosen and Davidson on that:

    Rosen: Manbearpig breaks out of the zone. It’s a 2-on-0 with Scuzzlebutt! Richter comes to the edge of the crease. Save Richter! Rebound! Save Richter! Save Richter! And Richter clears it into the crowd, and uh-oh. The puck appears to have hit a little boy in an orange coat. I hope he’s alright.

    Davidson: Oh baby!

  34. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    it wouldn’t be an issue if we didn’t have sorry “bleeping” jagr here, chara would’ve come to the rangers.

  35. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    oops, sorry that last post was from a conversation going on here in the wicky household that i accidentally posted……my bad!!

  36. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    man, the anti-french canadianism here is almost as bad as the jagr love!!!

  37. are the cancelling of law and order, and bloomberg wanting lebron in NY truly ‘first page’ news??

  38. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    nothing else going on in the world right???

  39. Izzy
    If your theory of “it’s 3-3 now, 0-3 down doesn’t matter anymore” then more teams would have come back over the course of history. Still think it’s too big a hill to climb.

    And my theory makes mama feel better, so that alone should get you on board.

  40. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    hmmm, maybe some dirtbag religious person needs to start something somewhere in the name of “god”!

  41. Blue Seat Horror on

    Linda, given that the plots from Law and Order are ripped from todays headlines (or whatever they used to say in their commercial), does this mean they will now be doing a show about Law and Order being cancelled?

  42. GCBlue – It’s not a theory, it’s just basic probability.

    Only two teams in history have come back from 3-0 down to win a series, but only five (I think) before now have even come back to tie it at 3-3. So, very crudely, that would suggest there’s a 40% chance of the team who was 3-0 down winning the series once it got to 3-3 (realistically, you’d expect it to converge towards 50% in the long run).

    It’s winning the three games to make it 3-3 that has the low odds. The odds on Philly winning when it was 3-0 can’t be the same as they are now.

  43. Blue, wouldnt THAT be appropriate. I love when shows have that disclaimer before a particular episode (JAG did it a few times) saying the story is not based on a real person, yet you KNOW it is.

  44. Of course when it boils down to one last game you’d figure the odds at the beginning have nothing to do with it. Generally speaking, you’d figure it was 50-50 with some marginal weight given one way or the other for home ice, injuries, momentum, etc. Can’t explain it in terms of math, I just think if it was that balanced, the down 0-3 comeback to win in 7 would have happen much more often than it has.

  45. Blue Seat Horror on

    My logic says the Flyers will win since Boston hasn’t showed many signs of life since game 4, at least on the scoreboard.

    My emotion says die you cheesesteak scum. Any team that uses “vengeance” as their marketing slogan has seriously missed the point of the sport…and is catering to a pretty serious inferiority/paranoid complex.

  46. not at all wicky! I was just correcting Izzy’s French :)

    Sally, I’m with you, but I hate the Flyers more. Here’s my hope. Boston wins tonight, then I go back to hating them and being for the Habs, then I hope for a Habs/Hawks final and go for Chicago. What are my odds?

  47. Blue Seat Horror on

    I was hoping Boston would come out of the east from the start because they were the least of 8 evils.

  48. If every game had a perfectly balanced 50/50 chance of either outcome, then yes, you’d expect more series to go from 3-0 to 3-3 than have in history. But teams usually go 3-0 up in the first place because they are much the better team – that’s why the circumstance itself is so rare.

    But say getting from 3-0 to 3-3 is a 1-in-1000 event. It doesn’t mean winning Game 7 is a 1-in-1000 event. So far in NHL history, it’s been a 2-in-5 event and could be 3-in-6 after tonight.

    For what it’s worth, I think the Flyers win will. The Niemi-Leighton/Backlund/Hextall/Richter goalie matchup in the Final has been destined from the start. If only to pacify the Trade Lundqvist Fraternity.

  49. I don’t know. I think it’s the Sabres fan in me that just can’t root for Boston. I think I have to root for them to lose slightly more than I’m rooting for Philly to lose. But I’m not happy about any of it.

    But I agree Mama… Chicago all the way.

  50. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Afternoon all:

    Chico Escuela wrote in his tell-all book: Bad Stuff ‘Bout the Mets, “Tom Seaver – he once borrow Chico’s soap and no give it back”. Beisbol been bery, bery good to me!

  51. I’m rooting for Quintuple OT tonight. That way whoever wins will be dead tired on Sunday night.

    Cannot believe I will be rooting for the Habs in ECF.

  52. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Too bad they both can’t loose…Damm you logic!

  53. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Oh and Go Habs! Except when they play the ‘hawks.

  54. Linda, remember when the Godfather came out and they had the disclaimer that said something like the movie was based on “a small group of ruthless criminals of no particular ethnic background.”

  55. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Wicky, isn’t jagrlove some kind of czech beer?

  56. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Homer: But wait. You can’t kill me for being Krusty. I’m not him. I’m Homer Simpson.
    Fat Tony: The same Homer Simpson who crashed his car through the wall of our club?
    Homer: Uh… actually my name is Barney. Yeah, Barney Gumble.
    Legs: The same Barney Gumble who keeps taking pictures of my sister?
    Homer: Uh… actually my real name is uh… think Krusty, think… Joe Valachi!
    Louie: The same Joe Valachi who squealed to the Senate Committee about organized crime?
    Homer: Benedict Arnold!
    Legs: The same Benedict Arnold who plotted to surrender West Point to the hated British?
    Homer: D’oh!

  57. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Fat Tony: Now who’s ready to sleep with da fishes? …because I brought this Finding Nemo comforter!

  58. Blue Seat Horror on

    Ogie, I thought jagrlove was actually a brand of Czech peanut butter.

  59. I hate the Flyers & I hate the Bruins. But I hate the Flyers more. So I cheering for the Bruins tonight & I want the Black Hawks to win it all !

  60. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    “a small group of ruthless criminals of no particular ethnic background.”

  61. go habs!!! im with ya wick. i wish we had cammy and plekanec on teh rangers. i hope we keep vinny only for 1 yeaqr though. what about fim? ehh,at times i wish he would be more consistent, but he would be a decent 3rd liner. AA,stepan,duby,werek. just gotta wait baby. we’ll be kickin carcillo in a few years.

  62. Renney's Rascals on

    Hey Rick,
    I have been trying to figure out something here, and I have asked EJ Hradek of ESPN via a chat he held, as well as tweeted Kevin Weekes, and no one can seem to give me the answer to this question, and I am not saying you will know, but I think it is one to ponder:
    Has it ever happened where a player has played in 3 straight cups with 3 different teams?
    I know Eric Hinske did it in baseball just last year, after playing in the Series with the Red Sox in 07, Rays in 08, and Yanks last year. But I just do not know about hockey!
    Just throwing it out there, maybe someone else knows an answer??

  63. Carp, the Godfather reference …OUTSTANDING! yes, it was a group of mixed background with the name Corleone…a nice German last name.

  64. Meaning, I’m not really rooting for Boston, just more against Flyers. As Sally said, if they could both lose, that would be grand. OK, I’m officially signing off the work station. Perhaps later, if I can stomach it :)

  65. ohh and the senator from godfather 2 was hysterical when he was at freddys joint and tom came over to help him out with his little “problem”. it makes me think of redden coming over sathers house and showing him some unsavory photos blackmailing him to keep himon the team

  66. ohhhh shucks. i wish i could come. but i just dont have the time to. no vacation time left, and i gotta wait to see whats gonna happen with my girl. she is coming out real soon for a couple weeks.

  67. a few toasts to you and tony grabby! we’ll toast with some nice italian vino for Tony!

  68. renneys rascals…

    Jim Roberts, Larry Reagan and Noel Price lost 4x in a row w/ 2 teams. thats as close as its ever got from what i can think of.

    the people who have won cups w/ 3 different clubs – Claude Lemieux, Keane, Jack Walker, Holmes, Al Arbour, Gord Pettinger, Nieuwendyk, Hillman, and Foyston

  69. also ty conklin appeared in 3 of the lat 4 cup finals (w/ 3 different teams). oil, canes, pens.

  70. Johnny LaRue on

    I wish I never read this post today. Richter’s urging people to support Obama cap and trade. I want to puke. And yes, puke is a funny word.

    Save the planet, eh. Save it from what exactly? Give me a break. If he is so concerned about cap and trade his time would be better spent advising Sather on the salary cap and the trade deadline.

  71. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    i can’t wait for the bonehead fest, it is going to ……………………awwwww, damn! It is out of the grabby, zzzzzzzzz, wicky time zones….DAMN!!!!!

    someone have a la fin du monde for me please!!!!!!!

    I’m with ya all the way bro, go habs!!!!!

    I was just referring to all of the anti canadiens sentiment here (except for fellow 4th liner grabby)!!!!

  72. lmao beninati has a super stylin pimp outfit on tonight…he just needs a pink fedora with a feather!!

  73. “Save the planet, eh. Save it from what exactly?”

    Politics aside that’s a pretty ignorant statement.

  74. Sally –

    No, I haven’t – but I’ve got to get me a pair of those sunglasses. Do they come in fluorescent green like MDZs?

  75. OK, against my better instincts, I have the game on. Depending how it goes though, don’t know how long I’ll last. ugh. the battle of our enemies….

    hey mike, you know I love ya, but he hasn’t been here in a while, and done nuthin, so let’s leave him alone, ok? babs/mama would appreciate it. merci (that’s for wicky!)

  76. Olga Folkyerself on

    Let’s Go Boston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Boston over Flyers
    Boston over Habs
    Chicago over Boston (a never before Original Six matchup)
    Chicago takes Cup home.

    I don’t hate Canadians, I hate the Canadiens. Montreal has enough Cups for the next millennium.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot… FIRE SATHER!!!!! Linda

  77. that’s exactly why I hate to have politics discussed anywhere, especially here.

    Because if it’s not your view, then it’s completely wrong and intolerable.

  78. Carp, todays topic was going to lead that way at some point.

    JB, i’m hearing Clyde Frazier and Keith Hernandez in my head right now says “REEEEEEEEEEEEEJECTED”

    *FIRE SATHER* Olga!!!

  79. Olga Folkyerself on



  80. I will only say yay for Philly behing behind, not for Boston being ahead :) this is just byfuglien. Can we get to original two of six already? That I can handle.

    btw, every time I hear carcillo I think he’s saying a bad word :)

  81. laurel, it so funny how our words have infiltrated how we speak! I wonder how many times i’ll say carp or carcillo while in NY!! my parents will think i’ve gone insane lol

  82. billybleedsblue on

    I think I can handle a blow-out with LOTS of nasty penalties here…

  83. Olga Folkyerself on


    2-0 Brew wins!

  84. Linda, I wish my mouth would say carcillo, hartnell or byfuglien more naturally, but it naturally goes to F. My father and boss at work would love it if I went more WTB!! or WTH, depending on what you choose.
    But hey, carcillo happens!!!

  85. Olga Folkyerself on


    Lucic Part Deux!!!

    3-0, more, more more!!!!

  86. I can guarantee you this. If they win, there will be no riots, no fires, no looting. But there will be many, many, many drunk-butted Bostonians around that fine city tonight, which makes me glad I’m not visiting there right now!

  87. Carp – Call me crazy but I like clean water, fresh air and trees (although I don’t generally hug them)

    How we manage that? – Well, I can understand that causing controversy.

    The Middletown, NJ native with the tally.

  88. >>228 wings. New Record!

    Great advert! I love his reaction in the end.

  89. and ORR still says bra… you know what!

    have you ever seen the jokinen pic with the rubix cube?

  90. brashear? who’s he?
    My cousin from Boston just e-mailed me that he’s growing a playoff beard. 1) he’s a liar. 2) I told him to get ready to shave soon anyway :)

  91. Johnny LaRue on

    If it was only about silly politics that would be one thing. What’s going on is far more serious. Reading about it here just took the cake so as Frank Costanza would say, I felt the need to unburden myself. That’s all I’ll say. Back to regular programming.

  92. Johnny, you couldn’t smooth a silk sheet if you had a hot date with a babe … I lost my train of thought.

  93. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Let’s GO RANGERS!!!!!

    Oh yeah , hello ya’all!!

  94. Johnny LaRue on

    Carp, you ever see the face on the Rev. Sun Yung Moon? It’s like a big apple pie.

  95. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    aw Tanks Linda RBAYG!!!! Wow Philthy Philly is makin a game outta this!!

  96. I hate to say this, but Montreal will eat both these clubs for appetiser. I think we’ll see a Canadiens-Sharks finals.

  97. JB i’m hoping for Hawks Habs actually.

    although the thought of Jed Ortmeyer and Manny Malhotra having their name on the Cup is intriguing ;-)

  98. Olga Folkyerself on

    “I think we’ll see a Canadiens-Sharks finals.”

    I HATE you. :)

  100. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    what political convo did i miss?

  101. I’m hoping for a Hawks-Anybody.But.Habs finals, but I doubt that’s what will happen.

  102. wicky, ha. just move on :)

    ddeb, double LMAO!

    All, I can’t take it. Hartnell, Byfuglien Carcillo! I said earlier I would only last so long. Forgive me, but I can’t watch anymore. I don’t want to end my week with a Tumsfest :)

    Great playoff hockey game, and I’d stick to the end if it were our guys, but I’m gonna go enjoy my Friday for now. Catch you all and the results tomorrow. TA! and go HAWKS!!!!

  103. Bruins left their first period wrecking ball “in the room” between periods. They’re not ready to win this match.

  104. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    umm ok, i was just kidding about the anti french canadian sentiment here. I hope that wasn’t it!!!

  105. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    What IF…

    The Rangers Oli Jokanen scored on his shoot out try and Hank saved all the shots he faced in the shoot out?

    History was made (like the commercial) and our boys could have been 5 wins away from being in the Stanley Cup Finals.
    We are every bit as good as the Flyers!! We let it slip away and leaving us all wonder , what If?

  106. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Oh BTW….Can we have cardboard cutouts of the boneheads who can’t make it to boneheadpalopsa ? So Its like they are there ? Cuz I’d like Me ,Wicky and Mike to have a cut out!! I know its weird but hey …kinda cool man.

  107. Someone should do Beninati a favour and introduce him to the word “shoot”.

  108. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    ok, thanks! I was worried. I would hate to cause controversy here unless it was about a hard hitting crease clearing physical d man or two!!!

  109. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on


    outstanding frakking idea….I love it!!!!!

  110. Flyers and Canadiens: two teams that refuse to lose are on a collision course.



    I never quit believing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  130. NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! AAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!! Philly advances?! A kick to my heart. Carcillo, Hartnell and the rest of those d-bags may get a chance? I’m so pissed at Boston now. Correct me if I’m wrong but the lowest of the seeds now play against each other? Pathetic. But better than Crosby (slightly) playing again. On a side note- anyone know someone that does good sheetrock work in Nassau County, LI? I have a few more holes inadvertently punched in the walls. Thank You


    TASTE THIS COLLAPSE YOU MUTHA ******************* CRIMINALISTIC PUNKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BLEEEPING GOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  133. MSN home page:

    Bruins’ choke hits epic proportions

    The Boston Bruins blew a 3-0 series lead and a 3-0 advantage in Game 7 to be eliminated by the Philadelphia Flyers

  134. THE FARTHER THEY FALL, THE BETTER IT MAKES ME FEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  137. for the person who asked earlier, Orts has played in 4 playoff games for the Sharks.

  138. Ive already lost my breath and my voice, and my chest is beating a 2 million beats a minute.

    And you know what, if i die tonight, It will all have been worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER!!! Thats my motto, thats what i live by!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  139. TheMessiah94 on

    The Flygirls might even make it past Montreal. But then they’ll have to play either the Sharks or the Hawks. So far these pop-gun offenses of the Leastern conference have made the Flygirls’ goalies look like Pelle Lindbergh…. um, I mean Bernie Parent. Bring on a real team that can score!!

  140. Blue Seat Horror on

    I just got out of band rehearsal. Did I miss anything? Was there a game on tonight? Just byfuglien kidding! ;)

    Manic depression is touching my soul
    I know what I want but I just don’t know
    How to go about gettin’ it
    Feeling sweet feeling
    Drops from my fingers fingers
    Manic depression is catchin’ my soul

    Oh, to go so high when the Penguins got ousted and now this!!! This piece of Carcillo!!!

  141. i leave you all for tonight with this brilliant piece of broadcasting that i think you will all remember

    THIS ONE WILL LAST A LIFETIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




    THANKS BILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YOU BOSTON ARSE**********************!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  143. I love you too Messiah!!

    I love you baby!

    I got my dream, i got my wish, i got everything i could have asked for.

    I am going to change my behavior on this blog for all of you.

    Why? Because I love you all and I love the Rangers, and I dont know any Rangers fan in FL, and love this community.

    Love the Rangers, Love NY, and most importantly, love life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  144. Blue Seat – It’s not that bad. I hope you don’t decide to walk in front of any Crosstown Traffic.

  145. OK, CR, that’s enough with the exclamation points, the capital letters, the going off the page, and especially the mutha and arse and all that other stuff.


  146. Goodnight all!

    I repeat, I love you all! From the bottom of my Boston-hate-filled heart!

  147. Blue Seat Horror on

    No worries dd. “I got better things on the other side of town” to keep my mind off this choke of epic proportions. Only the Rangers could bring me to step into Crosstown Traffic.

  148. i guess the bostonians that stole Nasty’s sad van 2 days ago are now driving it to frown town

  149. let’s see
    one of the biggest oil spills is going on
    in the Gulf of Mexico

    a meltdown of nuclear proportions
    was completed tonight in boston
    by the bruins.


  150. Like Lawrence Taylor’s lawyer, just when you think you can finally look forward to some peace and quiet…BOOM.

  151. jpg, the dude in charge of BP is calling this spill ‘tiny’.
    he should have to work down there as a fisherman for a few years now and see how tiny it is. DUMBAASSEN!!

  152. Blue Seat Horror on

    When BPVP said tiny he mistakenly thought someone asked about his ethics.

  153. Carp

    When you say “you’re a piece of work”

    Are you angry at me?

    Please dont put a damper on my night by meaning you dislike me?

    I respect you SO MUCH!

  154. have a good night ladies and gents!!!

    Conference Finals start sunday, right here on

    Oh sweet home Chicago

  156. Carp

    I AM unique. There AINT another one like me, besides my anti-boston/referee brother!

  157. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    ok all.

    I have to be up at 0400hrs, so good night john boy!!!

  158. Whoa…looks like someone broke loose from the cage! :)

    How ’bout them Flys, eh? Unreal…I guess history was made

    Two 3-0 comebacks in my life time…both pretty freaking bitter…

  159. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    NYR, thanks for that… LoL
    Yea, 3pm I believe. Great West series. Hopefully Mtl comes out of the East, a great story.
