The sound and the fury


Today is the anniversary of the Rangers’ Canyon of Heroes parade, and all that noise in lower Manhattan, and Mike Keenan being serenaded with “Four More Years” chants (and he wouldn’t last four more weeks), and Mike Richter turning to Mark Messier amid the wild scene on Broadway and saying, “I wish we could get a flat tire so we could stay here a while.”

Here’s a clip.

That was when New York showed the world how to celebrate a championship.

And, naturally, it was also the day that O.J. Simpson rode in a white Bronco in the infamous low-speed chase that kicked the Knicks’ NBA final game into a picture-in-picture square on the screen.

Meanwhile, will you please watch my car? (click here).

  1. LIRR was on strike or rumored to be on strike. I rollerbladed from my job installing windows at 1088 park avenue to catch the parade. My boss, the islander fan told my manager not to leave the job until i got back, how i deserved it and probably wouldnt see another one like it in my lifetime. I laughed and said thanks for the unpaid day off (but transport in and out of NYC) but this would be the first of many with this squad.

  2. I saw it this morning, LW. He needs to file the papers first…But in terms of summer plans going down the drain- not necessarily….

  3. Great clip Carp – snorted my water out my nose! Too bad (for everyone) about Drury, think he was done but its a shame the way these things happen. Cally for Captain…

  4. The parade was awesome. I remember being on the subway. Everyone was wearing a Rangers jersey and going to the parade. I was supposed to be in a meeting but I told my boss I had to go to the parade because it would probably be the only one in my lifetime. (It’s really starting to look that way!)

    Great of Drury to consider needs of the team he fleeced out of millions with his fraudulent play. What a captain!! Makes you really appreciate was Naslund did a few years ago – that’s a real man.

  6. And This One Will Last A Lifetime on

    Congrats to Bruins Nation…well deserved…well done….39 years is a long time

    Looking forward to next season and another year of Cally, Dubie, Stepan, MZA, Staal, McD, Sauer, MDZ, Erixon, (Thomas/Bourque?), all these terrific kids getting better and better, and for Gabby a real bounce back season with 42 or more goals !

  7. I think he should take the hint and retire, if I were him I wouldn’t want to be remembered for ending his career with a contract dispute.

  8. Doodie Machetto on

    Doesn’t this help us? I mean, doesn’t this allow us to have his full contract off the books next year with no cap implication for this year and next?

    So we will have a harder time staying under the summer cap, big deal. Were we really so close that the extra 3.4 million was the difference between making it and not?

  9. Doodie Machetto on

    DJK, he can either retire, or file some papers and get $5 million for nothing, then retire.

    Sorry, but it seems like the choice is pretty clear.

  10. onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    One of the things i remember about the rangers cup run was that hockey was being played by lots of kids..the rinks where i played had a lot more players coming in and tryouts for kids team were full. the results were that the kids who stuck with the game elevated the metro area hockey skills and a few went into college and pro ranks. Today ,isnt the case the economy and the rangers have hampered local development , just go to the local rinks and HS games and the level isnt the same.

  11. It’s actually a $2.3M savings, not $2.7M. Larry made a mistake. His buyout would be $3.33M over the period of two years. If Drury, however, is unable to play, the insurance pays 80% of his salary ($4M) and the team pays the rest- $1M

  12. Doodie –

    I agree so i find Brooks’ point hard to understand. He is suggesting that to get the “full benefit” of Drury’s cap relief under LTI the Rangers have to be at the limit of the cap plus the % over you can be during the summer. And so his point would seem to be that the Rangers actually need to spend more to get to the cap limit over the summer. Makes no sense to me at all. Also, doesn’t Redden count against the cap again this summer? That makes about $14 million in space that we won’t be able to use until after camp.

  13. onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    If drury is a team player he shouldnt hide behind the nhlpa and tarnish his reputation. As the capt he should put the team first.. I’m sure he can squeeze dolan for some money and an executive position somewhere in msg land

  14. I agree, Doodie, I do not know why LB is saying it. They can still stay under the summer cap by delaying some of the RFAs signing, and use up to $7M LTIR relief during the year.

  15. Doodie Machetto on

    “If drury is a team player he shouldnt hide behind the nhlpa and tarnish his reputation.”

    What tarnishing of a reputation? They signed a contract. Crucify him for wanting to enforce it.

    I don’t blame Drury one bit. If Sather was dumb enough to sign him to that deal, he should have to deal with all of the consequences.

  16. Doodie Machetto on

    Honestly, the worst-case scenario here is that we have to buy out Wolski.

  17. Peter- Reden’s contract counts, so is Drury’s. As well as some of the Hartford players who played this year- prorated for the amount of days they spent in NHL.

  18. Manny- it’s more complex. His contract will count against the cap even if he is paid by insurance, but they will be able to use his full contract ($7.05M) to go *above* the cap during this year.

  19. Doodie Machetto on

    Isn’t this just a giant win?

    My fear is that he comes in September and passes the physical.

  20. onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    You are right Doodie , but I think he can be persuaded.. but if he can’t play because of permanent damage to his knee ,what happens if he retires or they trade his rights?

  21. onecupin72yearsandcounting on

    I just read Brook’s article.. they(rangers) are screwed.. Oh well !

  22. I think he is done. He gets his full contract paid and retires. Why does he have to take chances with his health? I’m a little surprised that LB, who usually is pretty sharp with cap issues, considers that a blow. It’ll be a little difficult to navigate the summer cap, but I think it is a gain rather than loss. LTIR relief is only a bad thing if player comes back from it and the team has to go below the cap. But $7M gives them a lot of leverage. Except it may mean they will give Richards a prohibitive contract, lol

  23. That confuses me a bit, too. Do they actually have to spend more money to get the benefit of LTIR? I thought that was as it implies, injury replacement in the event that you get someone to replace the player. If they just wait until they need it, it sounds like only the amount over the cap at that time will count and there is nothing else the team can do. It sounds fishy to me, but I’ll give Brooks the benefit of the doubt on capology.

  24. Spider- you’re right. Except, let’s assume they sign Richards to 10M per year and someone else for 5M. And they are able to stay below the summer cap. If next year’s cap is $63M, they can actually be at $70M during the year while only paying Drury 1M.

  25. Hey Dolan, you idiot, sign Drury to a lucrative, non-hockey contract, and get him to retire in exchange.

  26. You think, Manny? Let him have fun. He ran out of brains long time ago, he is about to run out if computers he can use to get on RR.

  27. Oh byfguglien….Good morning all! Good morning, Sally! Happy 26th to da bag man!!!!

  28. Yeah, Rod Lurks tried the same thing until he ran out of IPs. Jackwagon.

    Maybe I’ll just start changing the body of his comments. Or get the legal department on him.

    Happy 26th, wick!

  29. I am going to officially graduate another group of young doctors who underwent their training in our residency program. This is my 16th year of training them. They all make me proud. In two weeks I will also attend another graduation for medical students of Cornell University. This will be my 14th year of teaching them. It also makes me feel very old….Shuddup, mama!

  30. Wow – nice job Ilb. It’s good to be able to see the impact you have had on this world and I guess you can see the impact you are having and it’s a good one! As a patient I can say that I really appreciate what you guys do! Thanks, Doc.

  31. can’t Drury just retire, have his surgery and then if he feels he can return later on his career, he can unretire?

  32. also assuming Drury has class. can’t he waive his no trade clause and be traded to Phoenix for someone who makes 1 mil. Insurance covers the 4 mil so Phoenix can stay above the minimum salary and not have to pay him more than 1 mil.

    then Drury can declare himself medically unable to play and stay in the area to work at his pizza place.

  33. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    Good morning ILB and all!!

    Thanks ILB, bag lady, manny, julie, hey youse, and banj for the birthday wishes. Never thought I would see 26!

    Glad you guys are here because I would never understand the drury buy out/cap situation…

    So will he or won’t he count? LTIR then?

  34. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    congrats on the graduations, you rock!!

  35. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    People are going on waivers today?

  36. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    A birthday hattie, thanks guys!!!

  37. isn’t it awesome that we can have people like ilb, who contribute so much to our world, and still call them Boneheads?

  38. Youse didn’t hear it from me (or Carp), but the Rangers just signed Chad Kolarik.

  39. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    At least the weather cooperated today (on my way to work of course), but it is only 42 degrees today, much better than the crappy 70s a couple of days ago!

  40. We can still throw a ton of money at Richards since with the LTIR spot we’d have to be pretty much at the cap. However I’m fine with not going after him and saving the 7 mil cap hit for the next season when we can look at guys like Sharp, Hemsky, or Semin. I’d rather bring Hemsky in for probably less money than the Drury contract and have the kids get another year under their belt. By that time, Thomas, Bourque, Kreider, and Grachev could be ready to come up and fill their roles for the UFAs that will be gone next year (like Avery and Christensen).

  41. Alexander Semin would be one of the worst signings in Rangers history. The guy has no heart and his stats are inflated because of the team he plays on.

    If he signs here, i bet anything he never hits 30 goals once.

  42. Jonny- $7M cap hit will be irrelevant next season. They will have to iron out the new CBA first.

  43. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    modesty, a very admirable attribute of extraordinary people!!

  44. carpwicky(grating PIBG)© (Non visor wearing male, 26, holder of 5 LLPs!!) on

    off to work assens and thanks again!!

  45. Don’t underestimate Semin. He brings the intimidation factor. Look at Staal, he hasn’t fought since the smackdown Semin gave him.

  46. I knew it wouldn’t be that easy. Drury isn’t going to let this buyout talk ruin his summer….

    Happy Birthday, wick!!!

    You’re a towel!!!!

  47. I think there is a solution to the problem and its lies in Phoenix. The Rangers could trade Drury to their favorite trading partners Phoenix for an expiring contract of around 1-2 mil. The Rangers then trade Drury to Phoenix for the expiring contract.

    Since Drury is planning on missing the season due to injury, the Rangers can trade him to Phoenix for the expiring contract. Since 4 out of the 5 mil is covered by insurance, Phoenix would only have to pay him 1 mil. Since Phoenix is giving up someone they wind up saving money but still have that 7 mil on their cap.

    Phoenix saves some money on the contract and can keep them over the salary cap minimum without having to spend more money. The Rangers can clear 7 mil in cap space and Drury can receive his full salary and continue living at his current address with the only difference in his lifestyle being the name on his paycheck so there would be no reason why he wouldn’t waive his no-trade clause.

  48. Doodie Machetto on

    oleo, 4 out of the 5 mi is covered by our insurance. It would not be covered by Phoenix’s.

  49. Congrats ilb! FYI all, the tech police have been called, as you can see :) If needed again, the lawyers will be on standby I gather :)

  50. Doodie Machetto on

    It’s basic insurance principles. You can’t insure something that you already know to be damaged.

    So, in other words, the Rangers, when signing Drury to the contract, got it insured against injury. Now, if Phoenix were to acquire the contract, they would have to procure their own insurance for the contract. No insurance company would insure the contract now since it is a known condition. They would disclaim as to the knee or anything related to it, which would basiclaly be worthless.

  51. They might well be toothless, but you have to think the league would contest the trading of a $7m cap hit for a player with a long-term injury on the final year of his deal.

    They didn’t like it when the Leafs acquired an injured Olaf Kolzig and some other stiff at the deadline a couple of years just for Tampa’s financial purposes.

  52. Doodie Machetto on

    “They might well be toothless, but you have to think the league would contest the trading of a $7m cap hit for a player with a long-term injury on the final year of his deal.”

    They had no problem when the Devils traded Maladog to the Sharks.

  53. People like to get stuff Doodie. Plus if you wear the shirt then someone is like, “hey where did you get that shirt?” and it advertises the charity.

  54. WOW! Rory McIlroy! In the US Open at Congressional, McIlroy became the first player in the history of the tournament to amass a score of 13-under par at any point in the tournament. He achieved the feat by making a birdie at the 17th hole in the 2nd round (today).

  55. Doodie

    True, but Lamoriello was seemingly allowed to operate under his own interpretation of the rules for a good while until the Kovalchuk saga.

  56. Lol.. don’t know if anyone made mention of this, but, Eklund blamed the Vancouver riots on terrorists..

  57. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Maybe next time we can appoint a captain who is a New York Ranger, not a spy who came in from the cold pizza.

  58. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch house, can we just strip this bastard of his “captaincy,” NOW, please!

  59. Are you serious, Latona? Eklund hasn’t been the same since his dog died a couple of years ago….

  60. Doodie Machetto on

    Drury’s knee injury keeping him from being bought out is the equivalent of South Park saving their jobs from goobacks by engaging in a homosexual orgy.

    “Present Day America #1!”

  61. Thanks Latona. I used to sell the BassMaster 3000 but now I just do paperwork. My sales style was too edgy.

  62. Hey youse,

    The dogs definitely get lunch points, and you do too, for sharing the video.

  63. LOL, that was good. I just imagined my dogs participating in that dinner. It’d be over in 15 sec…Both plates. And human’s hands too, at least the one who would be brave enough to handle Leo.

  64. 4generations 4 cups on

    Latona i saw the ‘terrorist’ thing. Really shameful. Gotta point the finger elsewhere, somehow!

  65. Same here, Orr….Never played a game, don’t know the rules. By design. One day, I’m sure

  66. I got a big crack out of the Dog character in the movie UP. That thing was hilarious. They were so classy but then they devoured food in such a messy way.

  67. czechthemout!!!! on

    Drury is surely pure class.

    Sather tells him “Chris, we are going to buy you out and hand you a check for $3,700,000 not to play”

    Drury tells Sather” screw you! I have a bumb knee and will file with the league informing them of my inability to play, that way, I can get the $ 5,000,000 I was due this year” if you read LB’s article, it is the only conclusion you can draw. Like I said, real classy. This guy has been a jerk the last three years here.

    I am finally glad this bumb is gone !

  68. His check would be $3.33M, paid over two years. Would you be willing to forfeit the rest of it?

  69. I have no problem with what Drury did because it is his right but any talk of him being a classy or selfless guy now goes out the window.

  70. Doodie – You’re absolutely correct. I’m astonished fans are blaming him for anything, much less an injury Sather should have already known about before he started leaking word about the buyout.

    By the way, I’m pretty sure you can’t trade an injured player. And by pretty sure, I mean 110 percent sure. That’s why Gaborik was such a crying shame for the Wild before he went UFA. He waited to have surgery, which put him out for beyond the trade deadline, meaning he was on the LTIR and couldn’t be traded. He came back about two weeks later and probably would have gotten the Wild at least a first-round pick had he been moved.

    Besides, laying on Drury, a guy who put his heart into the team, is not the way to go. The more obvious way is to pull Redden aside and spell out his future with the Rangers. Or more specifically, his future with the Hartford Whale and/or Greenville Roadwarriors. Redden, who is younger than Drury, assuredly doesn’t want to spend the rest of his career in the minors. I’m sure he’s the one they’ll probably target if they need the space. Make it clear to him that he’s never coming back and maybe he’ll leave. A buyout of Redden is a lot less favorable than Drury, but really there’s only two years where it will really hurt: 2012 and 2013, when his cap hit will be $3.3 million. This year, his buy-out cap hit would be even less than Drury’s at $1.8 million. That would let the Rangers plan for a year before taking the brunt of the hit.

    Better yet, if we’re talking about sending players to other teams looking to rise above the cap floor, then Redden is a great acquisition. There’s a chance he could fill a spot on defense. And if he doesn’t, then it’s back to the AHL in October. That seems a lot more logical than all this BS about screwing with Drury or convincing the poor guy he has to retire.

  71. oleosmirf – why do you say that? Because he’s got a degenerative knee condition and still loves hockey? It’s not his fault Sather overpaid him. At 35 and without being able to test the UFA market due to an injury, I don’t blame him for not retiring, if in fact that’s what he’s going to do. In fact, that’s the smart thing to do.

  72. I think we should keep Dreary this season. We might have a shot at trading him at the deadline to a playoff team. Unless Dreary can’t stay away from his family, and more importantly, his pizza, for three-four months.

    Even if it’s a 5th round pick. Something is better than nothing.

  73. Phil- there is no provision in CBA disallows trading the player while on IR or LTIR. Both Theodore and Bertuzzi were traded while on LTIR, IIRC. Gaborik wasn’t tradeable because he was injured and unfit to play, not because CBA doesn’t allow it.

  74. “I picked Chris Drury because he’s Chris Drury” – Brian Burke

    LOL! We can definitely trade him to the Maple Leaves!

  75. why because this will be second consecutive season Drury will be paid 5+ million to rehab. The classy and selfless move would be to either retire and take a high paying job in the organization (MSG analyst, player development) or take the buyout and sign with another club.

    Of course Drury doesnt have to but considering the has underperformed and has been unable to contribute the last two years, he should do it out of good will.

  76. Doodie Machetto on

    You know what the classy move would be? Sather honoring the contract he gave to Drury.

  77. Doodie Machetto on

    Expecting Drury to retire so that he walks away from $5 million? That’s just silly.

  78. Doodie Machetto on

    Look, he won’t be playing here next season, whether by buyout or injury.

  79. Doodie Machetto on

    Manny, the storm has made it downtown now. Good incentive not to leave early.

  80. Yea be careful Doodie. It’s a rager!

    It’s true that Drury won’t be playing due to buyout or injury. It’s also true that he’s going to get a LOT of money from the NY Rangers.

  81. I think I’ll miss him. The dreary voice, the powerful nose, the pizza, and the way he dramatically fell to the ice after blocking a shot, among other things.

    R.I.P. Chris Drury!

    And by R.I.P. I mean, Rest In Pizza

  82. And when they lower the pizza dough casket in the oven, instead of people throwing dirt and flowers on the casket/grave, they can throw buffalo wings, and rocky mountain oysters, as a tribute to his days with the Avs, and Sabs. Obviously the flame burning his body, and cookie the dough would be a tribute to Calgary.

  83. It was raining here in Jersey, too; a woman at the mall that I was running through the parking lot turned to me and said “It just started raining in a minute!”

    When does it ever not start raining in a minute.. one second it’s not raining and the next second it is..

  84. I wonder what Defending the Core has to say about JOse Reyes right now?

  85. Doodie –

    I’ve got insider – what do you want to know?

    They have the Rangers picking Jonathan Miller, C, U.S. National Team Development Program / North Dakota.

    They compare him to Chris Drury!!!

  86. HAHA Chris Drury. Definitely a great draft choice. He will take your money and turn it into pizza!

    A Ranger’s Blog.

  87. They compare him to Chris Drury? in a sense that he’ll eventually be bought out by the organization as well? lol

  88. “The playmaking center who can be Chris Drury now that Chris Drury can’t anymore.”

  89. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    You know what the classy move would be? Drury living up to the contract Sather gave him, by, 1. Having a good attitude; 2. Sacrificing his body (blocking shots, and hitting/taking out opposition bodies); 3. Scoring goals; 4. Registering assists; 5. By not “dogging it” everytime he gets a hang nail; and, 5. Acting like a captain and a leader, instead of like a girl scout on a field trip when there is a hockey game going on.

  90. Doodie Machetto on

    Boom Boom, there was no way Drury was ever going to live up to that contract.

  91. Doodie – here’s what they list:

    Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, C, Red Deer (WHL) (Edmonton at 1)
    Jonathan Huberdeau, C, Saint John (QMJHL) (Florida at 3)
    Ryan Strome, C, Niagara (OHL) (NJ at 4)
    Sean Couturier, C, Drummondville (QMJHL) (NYI at 5)
    Mika Zibanejad, C, Djurgarden (Sweden-Jr.) (Winnipeg at 7)
    Mark Scheifele, C, Barrie Colts (OHL) (Calgary at 13)

  92. Did Gregzzzzzz help Boom Boom with his 1-2-3-4-5-5 list format?

    I’m far from a Drury fan, but accusing him of not putting his body on the line isn’t valid criticism.

  93. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Doodie, seriously, could you make these dead-end signings known to Sather, before the fact, from now on? The man needs help, you know.

  94. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    LW3H, if you were to compile the stats, as I do, in all the categories, you would then know that, more than anyone, Girardi sacrifices his body, every game, for the good of the team, and that the resident pansy, Drury, almost NEVER blocks a shot, and rarely records a hit. The numbers don’t lie, Drury deliberately manages to be at a point on the ice – away from the play, away from the action all too consistently.

    This is not leadership nor living up to an insane contract – this is one of the biggest hustles in professional sports contract history. I am embarressed for Drury, and for the Rangers organization which trusted him to make a substantial contribution, and got burned at the bank and on the ice for the misplaced faith it invested in this snake oil charlatan.

  95. Doodie Machetto on

    Boom Boom, if only Sather listened to pretty much anyone, this blunders would be avoided.

  96. Am I the only person tired of Kevin Weekes relentlessly flogging his caribbean vacation BS?

  97. i guess he cares more about the regular season stats rather than the actual point and goal of playing in the NHL! Dumbest thing I’ve ever heard…

  109. Sounds cool. I used to love knocking the goalies down in NHL2k-something. I’m glad EA finally adopted that.

    They used to have goalie fights in NHL06 I think. After you got into four fights, if you started another, the goalies would go at it.

    They *desperately* need to change the fighting for the upcoming game. I was pissed that they didn’t change it at all. Same as NHL11. There’s a few other things that need changing, but I forget what they are. The glitches were insanely annoying!

    so let me get this straight, we can’t buy out drury due to his knee, but he can go on LTI and his full salary will not count if (IF) we go over the cap by the amount of his full salary…correct?

    my next question is do we have to go over his salary with one contract like richards at 7.5 mil per season (relax folks not suggesting that just using as an example) or can it be a combo of contracts like laich for 4 mil, o brien for 1.5 mil, and rupp for 2 mil (again, just examples folks)?

    This’ll get Carped (or Hey yoused) but I could’ve sworn that Drury led NHL forwards in blocked shots at some point at least, if not at the end, of the 09/10 season. Again, don’t take this as me being at all supportive of his tenure as a Ranger, but that particular criticism just doesn’t add up.

    Was it Brendan Witt’s birthday recently?
