    dde, Hippo Hurricane Holler! I wonder how many people here remember that?

    Nasty, Avery-Anisimov-Zuccarello-Aasen? Can you have four guys on one line?

    Big Blue, I’m sure you know that I could never give Sam enough credit for this, and I absolutely try to do so every chance I can. So, again, Sammy, you’re the best buddy. Thank you for leaving this to me in your “will” when you left us.

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

    man, how appropriate is the back of that t shirt of sally’s design????

    Thanks carp, I was beginning to think you didn’t care!!!!!

    LMFAO about 4 guys on one line!!!


    Let me start by saying we should bronze mama’s hand and then auction it off for a good cause (I’m kidding of course mama, congrats on the hand shake).
    BIG HUGE THANKS AGAIN to ilb and sally for the great work on the T’s and then to mrs ilb and ilb for being AWESOME enough to remember those of us at the far outposts of rangerland. (hope you enjoyed the beer pic we sent)!!
    The pink jkt lady waaaaayyy too LMFAO!!!
    spector reported that the russian hammer seems less likely to resign with the sens, slats better figure out a way to trade for him during the draft, spector thinks the caps are going to go for him if he becomes an UFA.
    re your post, prust, shelley, staal, yes. Girardi I would trade, but he might be back, EC i’m neutral on. The departures seems accurate. I think hedberg far and away should be the back up.
    I would certainly do the trade with sangs. I think mza is on the roster, and would have avery on the 2nd line more than the 3rd (he just seems to play better when he is getting 2nd line minutes….more time to agitate with more important opposing players).
    I would mortgage the farm to get a jack johnson from LA, I think gilroy may be traded, i wouldn’t mind seeing colby armstrong on this team, the hammer for sure. I think rozy gets traded (i just have this feeling it is for souray, who i think would have been on this team already if not for the broken hand in a fight at the deadline). Send redden to the minors period!!!!! This team needs a physical top 2 line forward, a number one centre, two physical d men (3 in my book), and a back up goalie!!!
    If the flyers win (apparently they will) I am certainly rooting for whoever comes out of the west (hawks it looks like). The only way I do not gag at the site of the flyers with the cup is lappy. With the way he has played and for so long, he can;t have his name on the cup enough IMHO!!!!

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

    We have a question….how come the “boneheads group” is not on our FB page anymore…..did we miss something???

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

    ok, well if anyone has any input…….just let us know. I’m off to work, so see “youse” at 2200 hrs tonight!

  5. Good afternoon all! Carp, get your own multiple personality!

    I’ll keep my hand, thanks….

    Habs, WTB? this is not the kind of history i want to be made. double geez with cheese!

    Anyone else going to be tied up in Lost finale madness?

  6. oh, wicky, I still have my FB page. dunno what’s up with yours. maybe check with Linda when she returns to the land of modern technology.

  7. A middle aged couple is watchin TV when an Evangelist comes on and promises to heal the sick. “If only ud pray with him and place your right hand in the air and place your left hand on the afflicted area”.

    So the man places his right hand in the air and his left hand on his crotch. Seeing this his wife says, :Gee, honey, he said ‘heal the sick’, NOT raise the dead!”

  8. oops. did not mean to cap myself….geez, that’s looks so badly egotistical!

    Tony, don’t know where the heads’ pics are….Linda’s and Meg’s will take a while, they used slrs. can’t speak for the digi folks…

  9. and thank you CCCP for your comedy stylings….

    OK, all, just signed on to return an e-mail. back to being a vegetable…ta!

  10. 3 quick posts before i start my day officially.

    The Rangers will announce the signing of free agent Mats Zuccarello-Aasen this week following the conclusion of the World Championship tournament.

    The fleet Norwegian Hobbit, who at 5-foot-7 (wink) is a latter day descendent of Herb Brooks’ Smurf Mark Pavelich — the Blueshirts can only pray — has agreed to a two-year deal believed worth the Entry Level base cap of $900,000. It’s unknown whether the contract includes bonuses.

  11. The Blueshirts have initiated contact and discussions with Ryan McDonough’s family advisers that will continue this week, we’ve been informed. As a college athlete, the Wisconsin senior is not permitted to retain an agent to negotiate on his behalf while maintaining his NCAA eligibility.

  12. The Rangers also are expected to begin talks this week with the representatives for Erik Christensen, the midseason waiver acquisition who completed the year as the Blueshirts’ first-line center.
    Slap Shots has learned from several sources that Christensen, an impending restricted free agent owed an $840,000 qualifier, played the final two games of the season against the Flyers with a separated shoulder he sustained late in the April 7 match at the Garden against the Maple Leafs, when he was run into the wall late in the third period by Francois Beauchemin.

  13. No problem TR! Everybody appreciates what you do! You’re AASEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Going in for surgery tomorrow!!! Wish me luck!!! More importantly, the big baby Tiki’s face is beginning to look slightly better in the last couple days!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Afternoon, everyone!

    CR good luck with surgery tomorrow.

    Tony, Carp- don’t blame me. I didn’t take a single picture, was too busy yapping.

    Let’s go Hawks! Are we edzoing today?

  15. lol, and im an great speller too!! Damn it!! :)

    i’ll count the Edzo’s today!!!

  16. Did Mike say it was pretty even series? Right… SJ is about to go down in 4

  17. This Toews kid is unbelievable. Im looking forward to watching a special team today!! Lets go Blackhawks!!!

  18. Yes, he did. Mike Milbury has about as much hockey knowledge as my left toe nail!

  19. If Hossa loses the Stanley Cup again, I cant even imagine what how he’d feel. That would be just devastating. I actually sort of like Hossa.

  20. Thanks, guys! Thanks, Carp!!


    Just a question. I could not care less when posts get put up, put some of the folks at Yanks Lohud go berserk if posts stay up too long or game posts dont get put up. They dont understand that Chad and Sam are probably off this weekend.

    Could you get a game post up about an hour or 2 before game time?

    Thanks, Carp!!

  21. First comment I’ve seen of the day: Absolutely ridiculous! Instead of appreciating Carp doing a job that’s not even his job to do, you get comments like the following!


    # mat May 23rd, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Epic slack job by the LoHud staff this weekend. This Rick guy sucks


    If any of you would like to go on there and defend Carp’s name, I think it would be fun!!!

  22. No need to respond to a jackass. but thanks, CR. I’d tell him to get a shinebox, but then I’d have to explain it to him.

  23. LMAO, Carp! Just tell the shmuck to come over to this place for a few minutes. He’ll get all the explaining he can ask for

  24. Hey Carp-
    I celebrated my 50th on Friday~ I remember the Hurricane Hippo Holler well!

  25. billybleedsbluezo on

    CR what’s the edzo count at? I chuckle a little every time I hear it. Also, good luck in surgery, and may you have a healthy and speedy recovery.

  26. A day late and dollar short on this, but… wowza, looks like a fantastic time was had by all on Friday night. Glad to hear you’re all recovered, too. LOL.

    Sally and ilb- those shirts are awesomecakes! I’d sure like to get one from the next batch, if there is one.

    Anyway we can pry Byfuglien AND Sharp from the Hawks?

  27. billybleedsbluezo on

    awww man, whoever just had the puck low left circle just needed to take a 1/2 step to his right and shoot low right…GOAL. WTB!!!

  28. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Should be some shiny hardware floating around the arena somewhere. Do they touch it?

  29. billybleedsbluezo on

    Good composure from this Chicago team; they may need to show it again to take the cup.

  30. Phew! That was hairy scary for a while there :)


    “do you think this team is good enough to win the stanley cup?” what a dope question. what’s the guy gonna say, “no, but we’re just really we got this far….

  31. billybleedsbluezo on

    Keith and Co. have some time to rest now and think about how many teeth they would give for Lord Stanley’s Cup.

  32. billybleedsbluezo on

    Mama, I think when you ask silly questions like that, you’re almost hoping to catch the guy off-guard. Like, “You are familiar with the Eastern Conference, who would you rather play…?”

    Anyone with half a brain would answer “It doesn’t matter who we play.” Or say, “I won’t answer that.”

    But maybe you catch the guy off-guard and he goes off about the Flyers, or Habs…then you have a story! I dunno, I’m thinking out loud here. Pretty lame post-game questions.

    Also, what sport besides hockey would have a guy like Keith getting 4 teeth knocked out and missing virtually no time in the game? What a tough bunch of mother Byfugliens.

  33. Thanks all! What a complete team Chicago is. They dominated in the offensive zone for minutes at a time to where it looked like they were on a PP. Unreal.

    Lost track of the Edzo count. It was somewhere around 12 at that point. Im sure it probably reached 100!

  34. billy, i think you’re giving too much credit to the question posers :)

    hockey players are the toughest!! (well, except for a certain player from Pitt., but I digress)

    And CR, even though I’ve already wished you luck, here’s your public shout out :)

  35. I’d love it the player said, “there’s an eastern conference? you mean we’re not done yet?” that would crack me up.

  36. billybleedsbluezo on

    Mama, that’s a good point!

    Hey, anyone hear anything about this? I’ve copy/pasted from an AP article here: http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news?slug=ap-flyers-skateproblems

    “A mysterious substance—hard enough to cause dents in skate blades—on the rubberized mat in the tunnel leading out of Philadelphia’s locker room and on to the ice, led to a parade of Flyers players getting their skates sharpened and re-sharpened during a 3-0 win over the host Canadiens.”

  37. That’d be a funny one, Mama. Betcha the reporter would do a double take on that.

  38. Good evening, Carp!

    It was sooooooo wonderful to meet all of you on Friday! I can’t believe how truly wonderful everyone is in real life! Everyone was so nice and fun and brilliant and super! Carp, you were VERY missed.

    Glad everyone liked the shirts! I gotta say… Ilb is the wonderfullest for finding that organization for folks to donate to. He’s also really great at parallel parking.

    I’ve got 7 larges and 1 small left. As far as a second round of shirts, that’s gonna take a while. Not sure who I’m sending these shirts to…? Ilb, do you know?

    Also, sorry for scaring you guys yesterday! I was brunching with friends, driving to NJ, and watching the game with my aunt who has now disowned me for being a Mets fan…

  39. Thought I’d share a nickname from the Flyers site for Crosby.

    Crysby. I think it’s pretty good.

  40. Welcome back Sally! I miss you already!
    OK all, I gotta hunker down and get ready for 150 hours of Lost finale time that I’ll never get back, but such is life, o off I go for now.
    get a good night’s rest CR. later all!

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

    quick blurb on my lunch break….still don’t know where the boneheads group is on our FB page……definitely sit hossa…no touchy the trophy!!!!!

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

    sad part is, he is better than any other centre we have, and he would improve our roster…..that being said, I see your point!!

  43. Sally- welcome back! If I remember correctly, BANJ, Spidering, CR, NYR1979 wanted the Ts. The 7 L and 1 S is the last ones free of charge left. Talk to Sally, folks. As I mentioned before, the few I have at home are from out of staters.

  44. Oh, yeah…It’s a good thing that you didn’t give me any credit for participating in Ts design. I would LMAO. Sally knows, I wouldn’t be able to design carcillo in black and white.

  45. *JAROMIR* and the Czechs won the worlds today! Beating Russia and ending their 27 game tournament win streak!

  46. Sally- I just left you a msg on FB. I think the shop will need certain amount of Ts to start printing again, so it will take awhile.

  47. ilb, I’m so dead from the drive today. I’ll email you tomorrow so we can talk about it more then, is that ok? I figure there’s no hurry on it.

  48. Thanks Carp! A lot of people have said that I don’t look 50. I wonder if I look 26, though. :)

    Oh… and Sally- The shirts rule.

  49. i may have said this @ w77 the other night but its official now. heikkinen has signed with Sibir Novosibirsk of the KHL.


    Peter Potamus: I’ll just have to use my Hippo Hurricane Holler


  51. Congrats to Jagr and Czechs — that’s true leadership and team play beating Russia All-stars. Good thing Sather rushed to get Naslund and Rissmiller to replace Jagr.

  52. My photos are finally up on the Boneheads FB page! Should be more coming from several others! Sorry for the delay!!

  53. ZzZz NYR ZzZz "Another round of Draft picks please!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Would be cool to see Fozzy’s pictures , wtg Fozzy!!! Sally as I said earlier , Ill try not to ride ya so bad about the Sabres. Yer shirt thingy is cool. Ilb and the Mrs ilb , thanks for thinking of us outta towners. We may not live there but we all have a little bit of you over heres.Cr9 take care of that apparatice or appendix . GOOD Luck under the knife tommora!!! Speaking of Knives , Tony …hope yer knee is comming around. Happy 70th Eddie!!

  54. WTB!!!!!!! Sally and Mr. Fozzy got those pics!!!! ARGHHHHHHHH. and I just got a hartnell’d up piece of news from out west too. My night is ruined.

    otherwise, great pics Foz, but I’m going to jump off a bridge now. ta all!

  55. “That was the lingering feeling in the San Jose dressing room after being Byfugliened one last time, and yes, it is now a verb, so live with it”.

    from Ray Ratto of the SF chronicle

  56. Some interesting facts, the first part from nhl.com:

    Excuse Marian Hossa if this feels a little bit like déjà vu times two.

    The Chicago Blackhawks’ winger will be making his third-straight appearance in the Stanley Cup Final with his third-different team. He played for Pittsburgh in 2008 and Detroit in 2009.

    According to the ever-reliable Elias Sports Bureau, when the series begins Hossa will become the first player to ever play in the Stanley Cup Final in three-consecutive years with three-different teams.

    The second, not in consecutive years, but the following players won Cups with 3 teams:

    Claude Lemieux (Mont, NJD, Col)
    Joe Nieuwendyk (Cal, Dallas, NJD)
    Mike Keane (Mont, Col, Dallas)
    Also Al Arbour, Larry Himan and Frank Foyston did it, don’t care enough about those 3 to look up who for.

  57. Good morning, boneheads!

    Byfuglien is in, awaiting Carcillo..or carcillo as a team.
    I know we don’t want the Flyers or the Habs to get any shot at the Cup, but who would you like to get embarrassed more in the finals? I’d say the Flyers! So, let’s go Flyers tonight? Yuck, scratch that..Didn’t sound too good. Need to brush my teeth now.

    Mike Milbury mentioned last night that it’s been pretty even series. Does 4-0 sound even? I know what he meant, except every time SJ would finally get close to getting a game, the Hawks would just find another gear.

  58. LI RangerFan on

    Whenever Mike Milbury or Pierre McGuire are talking, I mute the television. The two of them are useless…

  59. I’d rather not have the flyers even this close to the finals, but looks like that’s gonna be the case. hartnell byfuglien carcillo. Oh well, GO HAWKS!

    and good morning all…..

  60. Morning!

    I want to see the Habs rally to force a Game 7 so whoever wins that is dog-dead tired. Thus, the Hawks will ROLL even more easily. Course a sweep in the finals is never fun, but if that is what happens, so be it.

  61. Weren’t the Flyers swept by Detroit last time they appeared in SC finals in ’97? Experience counts lol.

  62. ilb2001 Flyers were no where near the cup in ’97. Caps were swept by Red wings. I think the flyers were out in the 1st round. 35yrs and counting for Philly, no way no how they are winning this year.

  63. I also remember the last game the Rangers played that 1997 year…When Lindros out muscled Messier for the EN goal. Still byfiglien hurts..

  64. Boneheads, BIG, WARM HELLO from Linda to everyone! She told me to say that she misses all of you!

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

    OK, morning all. The pics are AWESOME!!!!!!! I had to comment on one with ilb and a few of the ladies though……ILB, you’ll love it. And yes, centre is another canadian beer…..(smartass). guess we will just dump rozy, redden, olli, prospal, and auld, while adding marleau, volchenkov, tollefsen, hedberg, and big buff (the dollars should equal out) and we will win…ok, thank you and good night!

  66. I want to see the pics from the other night, but Facebook is blocked at my work. Oh well, I guess I will just have to wait until I get home.

    How is everyone on this Monday morning? This weekend took everything out of me and I feel ILL. At least it is a 4 day week.

  67. wicky (ILB says stay thirsty my friends!!) on

    Not working for once, so i’m ok, you?

  68. I am good, but Pearl Jam at MSG on Thursday night, Pearl Jam at MSG on Friday night followed by Warren, followed by getting home at 5:30 in the morning, followed by having to still do my husbandly and fatherly duties, followed by my friends 30th, followed by a BBQ Sunday….I am just so worn down, ha. But in the long run, as long as I don’t get sick, it was TOTALLY worth it.

  69. Wow, someone take away my last post. I sound like such a complaining whining little piece of carcillo. I am exhausted though. Ha.

  70. wicky (ILB says stay thirsty my friends!!) on

    not whining at all bro, thanks for the sit rep. Look at it this way, if you are like me, work is like a rest from everything else!!!
