Skating and skating


It’s hard watching these guys get tortured skating and skating and skating and skating. There are scrimmages, too. But in between, they get tortured. There will be ruts in this ice for months from this camp.

On the bright side, I got to chat with my all-time fave Ranger. Guy who used to wear No. 9. What a mean-spirited s.o.b.

Another good note, I think all six preseason games will be on TV, and if I’m not mistaken that will be a first. I guess the Rangers at Devils game will feature the Devils broadcasters. But you can see all six, which is awesome. How many other years was there a total blackout of coverage — including newspaper — of some of the road games?

Back with more in a while …

  1. repost:

    wicky – Soryal has been scraping with just about anyone that gets within earshot of him…not that it really matters, given a certain 4-year contract for $1.6 million per…

    speaking of which…have any of the beat writers taken a look at Boogaard? I know he was rumored to have come into camp like 20 pounds lighter. Can the guy skate? If so, what type of ability are we talking in comparison to Shelley-Orr-Brashear?

  2. GK’s Parise and Ochocinco jointly shut out Gaborik/Stepan & co in the first scrimmage of the day. Goals by Kundratek and Prospal: Blue 2 Red 0.

    Phil – i saw someone “tweet” that Boogey got lapped by someone in one in his group on of the skates on day 1, i think it was Todd White…

  3. I’m not sure if this has been discussed already but the Wolfpack will be renamed mid-season to the Connecticut Whale. A press conference in scheduled for tonight at 5.

    Yep, carp in regular season form with my carpings…….

    from last thread:

    ou would figure the folkyerself clan would be worth that many at least on their late night shenanigans!

    I do not think the carcillo incident should be forgotten in any way, shape, or form. It is exactly how you DO NOT want a teammate to be. A perfect example of how NOT to be a teammate!

    I read he did come in lighter by about 20lbs and skating was ok, he did get lapped by someone, but I don’t think it was white…might have been werek or gilroy.

    also from twitter:

    No one has come close to him! RT @PuckCentral: @JimCerny have any of the younger tough guys like Soryal been trying to take on Boogaard?

  5. Gross reporting that yogan had shoulder tear last year prior to being drafted. Is this the drafting teams responsibility or should player make that known to all teams. How did it not come out during combine?

  6. Kind of impossible to find out about an injury if nobody is talking aboot it. They should be open aboot it though. Look at Hossa, he had an injury that kept him out for half the year once he signed that huge deal with the Hawks. I don’t like secret injuries!!

    Although, apparently the kid played really well *with* the shoulder injury.
