Rangers at Senators tonight; and an unhappy anniversary

164

It was pointed out to me by a highly-placed friend of the blog that last night was not only Brian Leetch’s 43rd birthday, but it was also the seven-year anniversary of the wonderful and classy trade of Leetch to Toronto.

So, the friend points out, last night should be the end of the “seven years of bad luck” the organization brought upon itself on 3/3/2004.

(editor’s note: the trade brought Maxim Kondratiev, Jarkko Immonen, a 1st round pick (later traded to Calgary – Calgary selected Kris Chucko) in 2004 and a 2nd round selection (Michael Sauer) in 2005. So it wasn’t a total loss).

Maybe tonight we will begin to see the seven-year curse turn? The statue of limitations is up. What’s that? It’s statute?

But bring your umbrellas in case any more of the sky falls. It’s a 7:30 start on MSG2.

Here are the pre-game notes from the Rangers:

    Thank you. :)

    thank you for letting me post and repost the ad!

    We’re in bad need of help! Come on people!! Who wants a job?!

  5. Carp

    “seven years of bad luck” sort of ended with emergence of Sauer…which is somewhat ironic since he was a pick we got when Rangers gave up on Leetch

  6. Aw man, I got carp’d and hartnell’d I think……you all are too fast for me. C3, see my response in last thread. No time for repost, gotta get running :)

  7. fyi, do you all know that Lloyd Braun is a real person who works in LA? True fact. The Seinfeld episodes are an homage (big word :) to him…..

  8. Yesterday Doodie posted that a hat trick cannot include a post celebrating the Hat Trick. I was both humbled and humiliated. I think that we should absolutely follow this new system.

    Love you Tony.

  9. Stogiepuss must go on

    Goaltender Craig Anderson will make his seventh straight start on Friday against the Rangers. He’s 4-2 with a 1.16 GAA with a .966 save percentage in that span. – TSN

    just what the Rangers need, another hot goalie to face them.

  10. a statute of limitations is a statute that bars any claim of action after a prescribed period of time, carp! c’mon!

    signed,

  11. Statute of Limitations? Really? Come on guys. I want to keep my Job separate from my Fun.

  13. C3, I did :) and I’m neither, I’m the hatchet lady!!!

    This is a cheat (on Seinfeld reference) cause I looked it up. But seems apropos for you all lately :)

    Rangers = I don’t know, I’m obsessed with it. It’s like a spider in the toilet struggling for a survival. And even if you know it’s not going to make it, you kind of root it for awhile.

    I hate spiders but I love my Rangers! No flushing!!!

  14. Good afternoon, ‘heads!

    Sorry, Carp, couldn’t support you in your positive thoughts this morning, looked like you, and a few others, were against one negative wall out there. We got a ton of fresh snow overnight, so we had a lot of fun…

    Anyway, I don’t think I can change the general mood of this blog, but I’ll give it a chance.
    Not sure if everyone truly understands what rebuilding means. Last year we made a real step towards true rebuilding, yet the team was good enough to make the playoffs. They were healthy and Gaborik was scoring. They added a few veterans at the deadline, but came up short. They underachieved.
    In the offseason they got rid of some dead wood, avoided buying a couple of expensive veterans, took a little risk on Frolov. And added a 20 yr old center. As of now, their core defensemen barely started to shave. The offense is still young and learning, you shouldn’t expect them to know how to deal with adversity without actually going through. We are in a full rebuilding mode. Who would’ve thought it was even possible in NY? Yet, the team remains competitive and fun to watch.
    If they make the PO, and I still believe they will, they will overachieve. And, please, don’t question Torts’ ability to lead this team, he is the best coach we’ve had for a long, long time.

  15. Stogiepuss must go on

    I give Torts credit for the youth move and the rebuild. It was Torts who told Stogiepuss he did not want Redden playing in NY, and he told Stupid that he wanted to go with kids, and would stick with them. which he has, for the most part.

    the blame for a falloff can be more tied to the vets who have underperformed, especially Gaborik

  16. Via ESPN Insider that Noah linked:

    “My New York Rangers have lost three in a row and they’re just 4-6 in their last 10 games, falling into eighth place in the conference. Are we going to miss the playoffs? –Laura B, Scarsdale, N.Y.

    Yogi Berra famously said, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” right? The Rangers still have 16 games on the schedule, including Friday night’s tilt against the Eastern Conference cellar-dwelling Ottawa Senators. I’d say that’s a game you really want to win.

    Clearly, the New Yorkers have to generate more offense down the stretch. Since Jan. 1, the Rangers have scored three or fewer goals in 23 of their 28 games (that’s not counting two shootout wins in which they were credited with a fourth goal). And in 18 of those 28 games they’ve scored two or less. Not surprisingly, they’re 11-15-2 in that span.

    Star sniper Marian Gaborik’s underperformance and absences because of injury haven’t helped matters. Without a healthy and productive Gaborik in the lineup, the Rangers don’t have anybody who can put a scare into an opponent. The Slovak star is currently sidelined with a concussion. He has been skating and he did plan on accompanying the team to Ottawa, but he figures to be doubtful against the Sens.

    Despite their woes, the Rangers still have a good chance to hold onto a playoff spot. With the exception of the 12th-seeded and red-hot New Jersey Devils, who still remain 10 points out of the eighth spot, there aren’t any real dynamos chasing the Rangers. Basically, as it stands today, they have to finish ahead of either the Carolina Hurricanes or Buffalo Sabres. (The Sabres do have three games in hand; the Hurricanes have one.) If the Rangers can’t outplay at least one of those teams down the stretch, they simply don’t deserve a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs.”

  17. it’s bad enough the rangers can’t score but now MCD is out of the lineup and the rangers will depend more on McCabe playing defense, wow!!! It just keeps getting worse by the day. When the rangers won the cup I felt like, finally, now the curse is broken. You know that curse, the 54 year curse. I really didn’t think it would be another 54 years before the won the cup again but I am having my doubts about it.

  18. the Rangers tough remaining schedule includes

    Philly twice, Boston twice, at SJ and Ana and Buffalo and Pitt

    then finishing with the debbies.

  19. I’ve been say it for weeks. This team is not making the playoffs. That’s my opinion. I felt that way after a week or two after the all star break and I haven’t seen anything that has changed my mind. Yes, it would be nice if they made the playoffs, if anything so the kids could get experience. there is another side of me that wants the rangers to tank so they can finally get a high pick and hopefully draft a elite offensive player. I realize that neither will happen.

    ilb

    agree on Vets letting them down. Top 5 forward scorers from last year. All have either been injured, plateua’d or underperformed.

    G A Pts +/-

    MARIAN GABORIK 42 44 86 15

    VINNY PROSPAL 20 38 58 8

    BRANDON DUBINSKY 20 24 44 9

    RYAN CALLAHAN 19 18 37 -12

    CHRIS DRURY 14 18 32 -10

    Vinny and Drury have not helped this year. Gabby is MIA most of season.

    Dubi and Cally are about the same.

  21. Now! Now, George! Turn on the faucet! George, turn on the faucet! Hoochie mama! Hoochie mama! Hoochie mamamaaaaa!

  22. What’s sad is both the Sabres and the Canes arguably have more talent than us. They are just poor defensively.

  23. If I was the rangers GM I would serious consider trading Gaborik in the off season. When I heard Gaborik’s named mentioned as a possible free agent signing by the rangers. I read how Gaborik was injury prone and never is healthy, I said to myself, no, please, Sather, not another stupid signing. What I don’t understand is whoever Sather listens to needs to be fired immediately. This is why I cringe when I hear sather and FA.

  24. Hoochie yourselves!!! OK all, I’m off till Sunday…be good, behave and believe! LGR!!!!

  25. “You don’t know my name, do you?”
    “Yes I do.”
    “What is it?”
    “It, uh, rhymes with a female body part.”
    “What is it?”
    “Mulva…”

  26. rangers lose 4-2 end season in 11th in conf. lose 11 of 16 to end it.

    THERE DONE. THE GAMES IN HAND ON THEM WILL BE TOO MUCH.

  27. Have not posted all year long- but has anyone noticed this pattern that the Rangers are significantly out-shooting opponents- but if you really drill down, not many of these shots are quality scoring chances? (Not to mention that we somehow generate a significant odd-man rushes that result in no shot being taken…which is absurd) How many times can we play games where the other goalie is “outstanding”? It just doesn’t seem like a coincidence

    I’ll grant that sometimes we’re unlucky (and hopefully luck will bounce our way- everything regresses to a mean) but we just don’t generate enough shots that force a rebound.

  28. One thing I’ve noticed. When I watch the better nhl teams passing the puck. Whether it’s on the power play or starting out behind there own net, it’s like night and day compared to the rangers. The rangers cannot make one good pass, never mind several. The rangers have to be the worse team passing the puck. Last night it was brutal. Passes were either to far behind, to far in front, puck end over end flipped in the air. I’m starting to think our young forwards are nothing but 3rd and fourth line grinders with not much offensive talent.

  29. Noah-rury-aborik, 28 on

    A win tonight and a CAR loss at Chicago, and there’s a small sign of life.

  30. ToMG- agreed, but hopefully not regarding your conclusion on our talent- I think they have talent…starting to question the strategy…

    but, today’s a new day-

  31. I’m not worried aboot the Canes. The Canes can win until they’re blue in the face. I wouldn’t care if they went undefeated for the rest of the season.

    It’s the Sabres we have to worry aboot. 7th place, 8th place, it doesn’t matter, either way we’re versing a team we haven’t beaten.

    Actually the Bruins are in 2nd place for the moment.

    I like the idea of going against one of the top three teams in the East. I wouldn’t want anything to change. I’m hoping for Philly.

  32. Trueblue,
    yea, I hear ya. That’s it for me posting what posters could determine as negative. It’s tough being a ranger fan.

  33. Has anybody else noticed that we have been a different team (in terms of style of play) since Froloaf and Blowzy went away? Just sayin’…

  34. I tell you: If I was a Ranger in this situation right now, I’d start aiming my shots at the posts and cross bar.

    It’s incredible how often they manage to hit these posts ( BY ACCIDENT). Image how much damage they could do if they tried to hit them.

    And I would also aim directly at the goal tender’s pads. At least this would keep the puck still in play instead of bounding off somewhere else in the arena, due to missing the net. ( at least if it hit the pads, there might be a chance of a rebound.)

    This is whimsy of course, but these times develop strange and sometimes kooky ideas to form in the heads of the faithful.. I’ve admit..I’ve been smitten. Just ignore this as just another clever strategy conceived by a clever and kooky fan.

  35. Makes sense to me, fran. Sometimes you have to do the opposite of what you’re doing.

    I always have tuna on toast. Nothing’s ever worked out for me with tuna on toast. I want the complete opposite of on toast. Chicken salad, on rye, untoasted … and a cup of tea.

  36. I fell asleep with us up 1-0. Woke up with us down 2-1. Went to go pee pee and Henrik gave up the 3rd goal while I was in the bathroom.

    Like I said, Henrik is good, but he just isn’t good enough. He doesn’t have killer instinct. He doesn’t have leadership instinct. He’s not willing to alter his style of play.

  37. Stranger Nation on

    OK – that’s the reason they cannot score – no Blowzy. Let’s bring him back next year. Keep Redden up with the big club, resign McCabe and Eminger.

    That would be a great back line.

    Staal-Girardi
    McCabe-Blowzy
    Eminger-Sauer

    Whew that was easy, problem solved. Now that we have the Defense taken care of, lets focus on Goal scoring. First we resign Frolov…

  38. Stranger Nation on

    Sorry

    Staal-Girardi
    McCabe-Blowzy
    Eminger-Redden

    Kids need some more time with the ‘pack…

  39. Stranger Nation on

    Tiki – hate to think of would have happened if you needed to take a Carcillo

  40. LOL! Stranger, that might not go over well with Rangers fans!

    Seriously, I really just think that the timing is a coincidence and has more to do with the fact that the injuries have disrupted team chemistry. Not only that, but it also looks like the players are worn down, tired, and beat up from their “in-your-face” style of play. Not to mention that we have 4 rookies piling up big minutes in key situations.

  41. Unfortunately sather will be the rangers GM until he decides to leave. Which means sather isn’t going anywhere.

  42. I *almost* gave up on the Rangers in the Lindros-Holik-no-playoffs Era. If our roster next year includes Redden and Rozy (again), I’m gone for good.

  43. after i got back from msg last nite i watched the leafs-flyer game..aulie did a nick fotiu on hartnell….fun stuff….leafs beating them was great to see…if they can,we can!!!!!
