137 White and Kennedy put on waivers (updated)

Todd White and Tim Kennedy were both put on waivers by the Rangers, though coach John Tortorella said neither is going to Hartford (AHL) and that both will be at practice tomorrow. There’s been a lot of speculation around, and I’ll throw in my two cents: Now is as good…

93 A question for youse guys

When I go to games (and hopefully I’ll be going to quite a few) and do my post-game quotes … I know Jane and Sam would put up audio. I don’t know how to do that, and personally I’d rather read quotes than listen. But that’s just me. So, my…

120 Fedotenko makes it; signs for a year

The Ruslan Fedotenko tryout was successful. Fedotenko played well enough during the preseason — probably even better than the Rangers could have hoped — to earn a one-year contract reportedly worth $1 million. The Rangers remain under the cap by about $1M and have some maneuverability in their roster, which…

73 Enough waiting …

… That used to be Phil Esposito’s slogan when he was Rangers GM. This is going to be a tough week for you guys, I can tell, because you were so amped for camp and the preseason, and now you have to wait all week for a hockey game. I…

121 The preseason ends

And now they move on to the real stuff … a week of work and rest, and then the season begins. Was it just me, or was the preseason pretty entertaining for the Rangers? Maybe it was because they scored (and allowed) a ton of goals. Maybe that was it.…

277 It’s Go Time!

Before we do “go” though, I’d be remiss if I didn’t remind any Boneheads who double as Yankees fans, Happy Anniversary. It was 32 years ago today (OMG, 32?!) that Bucky F. Dent homered into the net (before there were seats there) above the Monster. Quick story. Back then (pre-internet)…

93 Rangers 5, Senators 4 (SO) in review

Some quick thoughts, then I have to run to football. Hope to make it back to a TV by gametime. 1) I may have said this last night, but the injuries to Drury and Prospal (and maybe Rozsival) should give the Rangers an opportunity to keep and use some extra…

49 More from the lockerroom:

Brian Boyle: “We gave up some goals but we never were feeling out of it. Those wins are pretty awesome. Even though it’s preseason, you come back and you have different guys helping, that’s great. Bigger picture, team-wise, that’s usually the first thing, and that’s a huge thing to build…

Before we get to the quotes, here’s the news (as I Tweeted earlier; imagine, I’m Tweeting now?): Vinny Prospal will be shut down for a couple of weeks to rest his right knee, which continues to swell when he skates. After exams today, team doctors met with Prospal and John…

More pregame stuff from the head coach. John Tortorella: On Rozsival: “I’d like to see him play, but I’m still not sure. … I just don’t know (about the opener). If there’s any question about it lingering, he won’t play (tomorrow). He probably won’t play. I mean, why? Why put…

20 Prospal out, Drury may start on IR

More concern about Vinny Prospal, whose right knee was aggravated again while skating. He was sent for more tests today and will not play tonight or tomorrow, according to John Tortorella. So that might open another spot or two for the centers in camp, especially since Tortorella added that he…
