155 Steppin’ it up

I went to the post office the other day. Parked next to a car covered in Rangers stickers. Then the guy came out of the post office, and he had this giant Rangers tattoo on his forearm. And if I needed reminding about how passionate Rangers fans can be, well,…

185 So, wadda ya think?

I’m back … temporarily … from my vacation. As always, I want to thank those who stepped in with guest blogs, and those who hung out here when nothing was happening. But we’re getting closer now, closer to actual, you know, hockey. And I’m still trying to figure out the…

82 Happy Labor Day!

Anybody else working today? Did you know that Labor Day has been celebrated since 1882, which was Chris Chelios’ rookie year? ——————————— Thirty-four days until Opening Night.

“I believe in Hockey” When Carp told me I could write a guest blog I immediately started thinking about all the different Rangers off-season topics worth commenting on.  The choices seemed endless — Marc Staal’s ongoing contract negotiations, the potential impact of new acquisitions like Boogaard, Frolov, and Zuccarello-Aasen, the…

184 Happy September!

Happy, because September means hockey … pre-training camp, training camp, preseason. And, 39 days until Opening Night. 39: The Dominator. Dominik Hasek, maybe the best goalie ever for a stretch of years. Certainly in the conversation. 39: Doug Weight, until he was traded for Esa Tikkanen, and Todd Marchant (for…
