It’s Go Time! (NHL entry draft version)


Let the wheeling, dealing and selecting begin.

Your heroes pick 15th, barring a trade down (or up), and apparently are going to do something nice to remember the Boogey Man prior to their pick. Good for them.

Here we go.

ps, you can still get your Derek Boogaard T-shirts, proceeds to his charity Defending the Blue Line. See the previous thread.

  1. First day back in awhile and Carped! Dang.

    MickeyM June 24th, 2011 at 7:00 pm
    We’re either starved for Rangers news or really sad pandas to be spending our Friday nights watching a draft and commenting about it.

  2. I still cannot get used to the idea of teams being rewarded for having a terrible season. They should be relegated to the AHL.

  3. i would love a robyn regher. always liked him at 2 yrs and 4 mil cap hit thats not terrible

  4. A Laurel Adorer on

    Please let Jaro come back to the Pens, Wings, or Canadiens! Ill immediately become a 2ndary fan of the team with Jaro!

  5. Grabby, I am one for sure. It’s gorgeous outside. Sunny, warm and little humidity and I’m home on the couch hanging with you all.

  6. just member kids, e got erixon, who wouldve went top ten most likely. thats a big step forward to adding to our very depleted d corps!! no really though he was a great pivkup by slatipus

  7. im tired from work mickey. busted my carcillo maker. i dont go out till later anyway. its only 6 here

  8. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Hope they do something for Boogey (besides what the Rangers will be doing)

  9. >>Drink of choice for headzo = vodka soda splash of cran….

    Don’t drink and draft!

  10. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Jbytes you’re right. Last time I did that was the Jessiman disaster…

  11. JimboWoodside on

    It’s kind of a lousy night outside tonight in New York City, but I’m a sad panda, anyway…

    Hey, Mickey – how are you doing down there?

  12. Grabby, only 6p here too. I rarely go out, but its so nice, I might go out for dinner and a drink after the Rangers draft.

  13. Headzo Del Headzo on

    On another note, some one armed fan just caught a foul ball at Yankees Stadium. You can’t make that stuff up!

  14. Buttman wanted to avoid being booed so he took his girls out there to defend him aha aha

  15. I”m all right, Jimbo. Rough day today, for personal reasons, but otherwise, OK.

  16. Headzo Del Headzo on

    That’s why we didn’t need a 3 named player. We already have Mats Zucarello-Assen.

  17. JimboWoodside on

    Hi Mickey – sorry to hear about your bad day, but now you get to relax, chill out, and watch the draft……

    Pierre is a total tool….

  18. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Incarcerated Bob’s twitter account is burning up the broadband. Take a look…something going on with the Island-girls supposedly

  19. Taylor Hall is calling the young man “a kid”? So, Hall is already a seasoned veteran, eh?

  20. I can’t even find the words to tell you guys how good of a guy E.J. McGuire was.

    Where’s Izzy?

    You’re welcome, Mickey.

  21. JimboWoodside on

    They keep using that word “elite”…….they need lessons in what it means, bonehead-wise!

  22. Jimbo, its the date, not the day. But thanks, nonetheless. And yes, time to relax now.

    Carp! You meanie! :P

    LANDESKOG! What a great name to scream at the time of your lungs just for the hell of it.

  23. at the time of your lungs? wtb does that even mean, self?

    TOP of your lungs, I meant.

  24. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " I feel a draft !!!"...says Greg L. on




    I still use Boogaard in NHL11 and he on my defense and he hits HARD!!!!!!!! I’ll never forget him!!!!


  25. Czechthemout!!! on

    Bret Burns from Minnesota is apparently on the block according to TSN. He has one year remaining on his contract@3.3million. He would look good here in a rangers uniform.

  26. JimboWoodside on

    *One* year they don’t make the playoffs (just barely), and they wind up with the 4th pick – there’s no justice!

  27. Lou Lam REALLY likes Swedish stuff apparently. Bet he shops at IKEA all the time.

  28. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    It’s Sather’s Day? He just turned 26. Must have been born on February 29th.

  29. can someone please whack que ball in the head and knock him out so i don’t have to hear him blabber all night long.

  30. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Nassau mausoleum padded the stats – had liberty basketball fans implanted in the seats

  31. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Is it our turn yet?"...says Greg L. on

    Yo ORR , don’t be so cynical man , lightn up have some fun!!!!! Rangers are going to be up soon soon !!! Don’t let Pie-air head upset you , the Rangers are comming!!!!

  32. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " We want a pick!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Trying to stay calm here Carp , NOT WORKING!!!


    GO Rangers!!!!! Hey up comes Winnepeg Jets …wow could they still suck?

  33. JimboWoodside on

    He must have pictures of the Sens owner getting frisky with a goat or something….

  34. Scheifele will remember this day for being the only draftee not getting his team’s jersey.

  35. leetchhalloffame on

    Jimbo – I didn’t say it was aboot hockey. They ran oot of grits in Atlanta.

  36. There’s an audio delay/lip synching issue with these interviews. And its driving me nuts.

  37. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Anybody else here want to smack that 50 year old dude up in the Winnipeg arena with the “My first NHL draft” sign? What kid did he steal that from?

  38. Are the Rangers even at the draft? Perhaps Sather is drafting remotely from Banff?

  39. no sighting of any rangers yet. they thought the draft was in hilton head from the 18th tee

  40. True Blue Mike on

    I want the Rangers to either take Grimaldi, Puemuel, or Biggs in that order.

  41. JimboWoodside on

    Oh!! Well, that’s serious business then, Leetch – they gotta have those grits! :-D

  42. So most of the next bunch of guys on the list are D-Men, which means your heroes might have their pick of the best forward still available.

    Who(zerman) do you want?

  43. Headzo Del Headzo on

    I’m definitely going to Sweden in October now. For the ladies of course…although something else is going on there too. Anybody else?

  44. Miami is on vacation…But I bet he has no doubts the Rangers are about too bush league this one

  45. Pierre wants to be a GM? I wouldn’t let him manage a local animal shelter center…

  46. JimboWoodside on

    Honestly, have they even pointed a camera at the NYR table? Is anyone there?

  47. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " When is our turn !!!"...says Greg L. on

    Where is Sather? I wanna see Messier!!! I want our BOOGAARD tribute!!!

    Lets us go Next!!

  48. Headzo Del Headzo on

    Thx Calgary. Getting a little giddy! Like George with Elaine’s boyfriend…not that there’s anything wrong with that!

  49. iDoodie machetto on

    They said king lives near the family.

    As it stands, Grimaldi is my highest ranked player for the team

  50. doodie

    im all for mcneil. love the size down the middle point per game guy and physical.

  51. Isn’t that Zibanjabathehut guy American? They said he was half Swedish, half Finnish, half British, half American, half Angelina Jolie-Pitt, half Wookie, half E.T., half Slovakian, all Euro-pansy???

  52. No Americans taken yet. I think we’ll take the first American player selected whomever that is.

  53. so are all the guys that we wanted already drafted
    and the second coming of (put name here)
    is going to be named in a few minutes.

  54. Olga Folkyerself on

    The Rangers are next:

    Glen Sather: The Rangers select as their first round pick, from Dartmouth College-


  55. if im the Rangers i look to trade down a few spots and pick up a 2nd. If not then take McNeil or Armia

  56. Hugh Jessiman, welcome to the NHL….

    Hugh Jessiman, welcome to the AHL….

    Hugh Jessiman, welcome to the KHL…..

    Hugh Jessiman, welcome to random hockey league in China….

    Hugh Jessiman, just retire already….

  57. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " BOOGAARD !!!"...says Greg L. on

    We love you Big guy .

    Very emotional …plz remove yer caps.

  58. sther is like weekend at bernies. clark and mess just prop him up and stuff a stoge in his mouth

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

    I think phillips, but I would like biggs!

  60. Mister Delaware on

    “Armia … Weaknesses – Questionable work ethic, would rather poke check than hit an opponent, lacks competitiveness.”


  61. poor richard on

    what is with the dissing of McIlrath by the TSN talking heads, saying he was not as well rounded as that other kid just drafted

    McNeill will be the pick

  62. Czechthemout!!! on

    Another dumb draft pick in the first round. Amazing. That’s why this team will always be mediocre

  63. They really liked that kid. Not sure he’d have been my choice but Gord Clark must know something.

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

    classy by the rangers and guess I should stick to d men. I thought they would go with phillips a playmaking centre, but maybe they are getting him elsewhere

    back to moving!
