Game 3 from Traverse City, Rangers’ pups vs. Carolina kids.
On MSG and NHL Network (I think), 3 p.m.
Hope to have a review of today’s game, and then a tournament wrap-up after tomorrow’s finale.
I’m actually going to watch this game today! I haven’t really paid attention to the other games!
Spare a square?
Let us know who the biggest busts are Orr
WOW! 23 seconds into the Champions League group match, Milan takes the lead over Barcelona at the Nou Camp!!!! What’s the score of the Liverpool match?
I will, CT!
They are all busts! Trade ‘em!
Well, that one guy, Wade, he seems like a guy we should keep our eye on. Not for anything illegal though!
We get to see the only bust of the Stahl/Stawl/Stall/Staal family, Jared!
That’s what you get for naming your kid after the Subway guy
Is Sanguinetti playing in the game? I think he’s in the bust HOF along with Jessiman and Montoya.
Do you watch soccer too Manny?
i have a fantasy league going over at the ESPN. i’m using h2d points as a scoring system. if you’re interested, i have an open spot. email me and will send invite
Did anybody score yet Orr? If not they’re all busts.
Baby Rangers score! The guy with the long name!
I don’t think so, CT! MSG didn’t mention him.
Jody auf wiedersehen?
Bwaha, my friend just got NHL 12:
Here are Ranger players overall ratings.
and just for CTB we have Redden at 79
They still have Frolov and Prospal on the roster. I played one exhibition game and gaborik got hurt in the 1st period and was out for the game.
oh oh! i hope it doesnt happen in real game!
Wolski is mad soft in NHL11
LOL @ Butt-Chin getting hurt!
How is Avery, MZA, EC, and Rupp in the 80’s?? MZA you can make an argument for, but the others, not so much.
Yeah, that’s the guy, CT. Pretty nice shot, on the PP.
Brad Pitt scores for the Canes.
LOL! Schoenfeld keeps looking at Joe Mich while his head is turned. Does he have a crush or something? I’m sensing a little Giannone/Sullivan chemistry.
I was able to play almost 4 full seasons of GM mode in NHL 11. Gaborik got hurt in 2 of the 4 seasons. Although nothing serious. Cally was actually the most injury prone of the forwards. Never got Wolski, but I did get Parise between seasons 1 and 2. He was good but not great. Stepan became an absolute beast, putting up back to back 50 goal seasons. I finally got AA up to 40 goals/80 points in season 4. Good under the radar guy to acquire was Darren Helm from Detroit.
I wonder where EC fits in. I keep forgetting he’s on the team. It seems like there’s no room for him at all, which makes me happy!
CT – that is freakin’ hilarious. Gaborik out in the first. Surprise. I hope that doesn’t happen!
These EA games are usually very unrealistic with the injuries.
In NHL10 Franchise mode, I would always slash OvechCANT and Crosby until I injured them, and just kill off the penalties, which would normally be a 5 on 3 for a whole damn period! It was worth it!
McIlrath was trying to fight Jared Stahl after he threw a high hit at a Ranger. Unfortunately while he was doing that, the Canes scored
Baby Rangers score! McColgan! 2-1
Manny, you get the PS3 we ordered using CCCP’s credit card yet?
What I don’t get in the NHL games is that you can completely destroy a guy, either against the boards or in open ice and nothing happens. But if you miss the hit and hit the boards yourself, you get injured.
Cam Fowler would have beaten up Runt Stauhl.
yeah Manny… did you get it yet? lol
I can’t play Be A GM for too long… i get annoyed lol
i love playing HUT online with other kids…
And he would have scored the game tying goal in game 7 of the Cup final next year, CT!
Yea, CT – I just got it. Luckily they forwarded me the Credit Card information on the packing slip. I am about to hit up Times Square and get some stuff at Game Stop. Maybe Bubba Gump Shrimp too!
LOL! The Dallas Stars team is walking around in the background, in their gear. What the fugg?
Mama & Papa Stahl are in the house.
Fun fact about the Fox Orr:
Erik and Mark?
Ugh! I just can’t watch this Rangers/Devils/Isles Seekers Of The Cup commercial. So incredible cheesy!
I think you should buy the Devils with CCCP’s credit card.
That commercial is horrible.
Fox has dropped on my list, but she’s making a bit of a comeback. She needs to drop that has-been husband. Who wants to be a 25 year old step-mom?
Anybody got a link to the Busts in Traverse City?
I thought the NHL network showing the games online for free? Lemme check!
That’s a good idea, LW. While you’re at it, pick up a few subscriptions to Butt-Man!
I heard the Devils are thinking of doing a bond underwriting in order to finance this season’s players meal budget.
Nah, don’t see it on NHL.com!
Can’t find a link on any sites I know of.
Damn! I’ll just watch later…Thanks anyway, broseph!
“Anything Mortal Kombat. I have that down and I don’t cheat. That game just works well with my brain. The way my brain fires signals works well with how that game works. And I’m just really good.”
she had to repeat the same line twice but in a different way.
“I eat because i’m unhappy. And i am unhappy because i eat” – Fat Bastard
Thomas scores with a second left!! Nice shot!
Actually, with 0.2 seconds left to be exact.
Megan Fox said she goes on Lord Of The Rings forums to discuss the books and movies. LOL! So hot, and so lame at the same time!
What a whack job. She did the cover of Cat Fancy:
I was just going to type that I thought Rod Brind’amour didn’t look that ugly, but then he turned his head.
He looks less creepy without the helmet though.
Maybe MZA will look to go to LA if things don’t work out on the Rangers. Frodo from Modo thinks he mighthave a shot.
She french kisses her parrot….interesting…
That’s right, ORR. ....... ..... ... Bird Flu
LOL! CT, I would trade MZA for Doughty!! But, there’s not many other players I would to trade MZA for on the Kings!!
Oh no, an extended version of the Seekers Of The Cup commercials, with quotes by Fishler and Maloney. Stop already!
I’d take Koptiar, Richards and Brown. Even Jarret Stoll just confuse Sam and Joe M.
I’d take Doughty, Kopitar, Johnson, and Brown!
Oh yeah, Richards too.
LOL! Two Richards, and a Stoll and Stahl. Sam Rosen’s head would explode!
Btw, how awesome is it that there are currently three captains in the NHL from upstate NY: Brown, CallaMAN, and Gionta. Pretty awesome!!
Put them all on the same line!
I believe NY has the most players in the NHL out of the US states. Most of which are from upstate, throw Patrick Kane in there too. You have Higgins, Komisarek and Scuderi from LI and Shattenkirk from New Rochelle. Not sure if there’s anybody from NYC.
LMAO! Byfuglien weighs 275? That’s almost the size of two Broduer thighs.
JT Miller loses the puck on a two on one. BUST!
TRADE HIM IMMEDIATELY
Joe Mich looks soooo creepy from this angle!!
LOL! Ron Francis said “I was joking off…..offline”
I think he thought for a second he said “jerking”! Ahaha!
With the usual apologies about the core being defended for a brief moment, my highly-informed and detailed preview of the upcoming season in the Eastern Conference:
Good afternoon, Carp!
JT Miller takes a offensive zone penalty. Unreal!
Canes score! We suck! Miller is a bust!
DarrenDreger Kyle Turris’s agent, Kurt Overhardt says he doesn’t expect Turris will report to Phx camp without a contract extension.
Is this kid serious? What the hell has he done since being drafted top five four years ago, more or less?
By the way, it’s 3-3
Prust has a better single season goal mark than Turris.
LMAO @ Maloney! “Do you have a Twitter…thing?”
Glen Sather interview coming up!
Turris probably took a look at his rating in NHL12, and he’s using that to his advantage.
Sather wont say who’s been the best at the Tourney.
In other words, he’s not really paying attention.
Sather. Interview. Sather interview? Does not compute.
LOL! Does Turris think this is the NFL? Or does he think he’s Pavel Bure?
It wasn’t live. It was filmed yesterday at a golf course. LOL! He needed time to prepare.
Gernander sounds bored out of his mind when he addresses the team.
Wouldn’t argue that Turris is worth what he (his agent) is apparently looking for, but he’s out of contract, so why would/should he come to camp unsigned?
Do we need Carp to settle the holdout/not a holdout discussion again?
Damn, we had this discussion already? I thought I was starting something new!
Only six or seven Rangers went to Stahl’s wedding. LOL!
According to Papa Stahl….
I heard Girardi slid aross aisle and blocked the bride from reaching the altar.
OH! I had no idea he was unsigned! Carry on, Kyle!
Jeez, after a thousand questions, they’re finally letting Papa Stahl leave.
Did Joe ask him how he was able to produce such big, strong boys?
Maybe, CT. I had to put it on mute after the 72nd question, so I don’t know.
Maloney sounds like me!
JT Miller drops the gloves, then drops some Cane! Weeee!
He was defending Bourque. He fought some guy named Kooger.
Maloney likes Miller’s “70’s hair”! LOL!
He’s no longer a bust! Trade to get him back!
McIlrath takes a penalty. Bastard!
Killed the penalty.
One minute left in 4 on 4. 3 on 3 coming up.
Sabres prospects watching. One of them has a jump rope. Random.
So which player will win the cup first?
Jared Stahl or Marc Stall?
Jumping Rope is old school training!
Maybe the Sabres do double dutch?
Christian Thomas with a pathetic giveaway, and the Canes win it.
A guy named Shugg wins it.
damnit we suicked!! i hate this prospects. byfugl;ier lazy cuz they know theyre in the finals. im done with this team. nice play mcildoofus missing shots and skatin g like a pregnant walrus sliding across an iceberg. great giveaway thomas. avery number 2.
orr,ccc-= u guys get 12 yet? im playin it now. thy start u off a the winter classic frm last year. game is almost exactly the same as 11. hope gm mode is better.
remember the negative nancies vs the positive pollies last season? are we gonna have rematch?
Joe Micheletti looks creepy from every angle!! LOL
How are ya Grabby..and the princess?
heyguys, soem old groovy tunes in the game. they got elo “dont bring me down” and mony mony billy idol baby!!! like a pony!!!
I should be getting it in the mail by tomorrow or Thursday, Grabby.
I know it’s the same as 10 & 11, which is why I’m not paying for mine! Bwaha!
tiki meister- sup broham? im doin great. the princess is doin awesome. she got an awesom assist in her soccer game lastweek. shes playin again tonight. i told her fr every goal she scores i will buy her a new toy. she wll score now!! ad ses gonna play nhl 12 wth me cuz you can make female hockey players now. shes excited. she is growin up so fast before my eyes i wish shecold stay this age for awhile ya know.
orr- its slghtly better than 11 in terms of the new features an stuff but the gameplay is almost identical, same announers(which gary thorne and bill clement are vry good), its just thy still have the exact same dialogue as 3-4 years ago. idk, i know they can make this game really great and upgrade it better each year but thn we wouldnt keep buying the games they gotta tease us with a few nice aditions each year so we dont get spoiled and expect too much improvement each year. whatever i get it, the online is the only reason to even get it if i was u. the lineups and new teams(winipeg) are some reasons too.
Yep, Grabby! Youre an awesome dad! Congrats on her assist. Maybe when she makes the US Women’s Olympic hockey team, we’ll see you on tv in the stands! My 7 y.o. nephew plays soccer too, wish he could stay that age for awhile too!
They really need to change the play by play team. I’d rather have Doc and Edzo.
no pitchforkin way orr. i would hulk smash my ps3 and everything in the vicinity if i had to hear the shrieking of doc. and his pitchforkin forarm shivers too.
got judas preist on here too
LW, “Dunkin’ Donuts stand integrated into the away bench”
thanks tik. she really is starting to get pretty good at the game. she got a little chubby in the past few months cuz her mother feeds her junk and doesnt take the kid to the park or whatever so she could run around so this will be good to keep her in shape. if theres one thing i am afraid of its her gaining weight and getting picked on in school. i know when i was in the lower grades i was chubby and got picked on alot. but im a boy, its different ya know. but longwood school district is alot different than the one out here in iowa. shes already self conscious about the little weight she put on. i know how uncomfortable i was wen i was overweight. i feel for anybod especially kids with slow metabolisms that have to try so hard to keep weight off
I understand. I used to be a little overweight, and didnt like the way I looked. BUT…I lost 20 pounds using a diet that Linda gave me, and I feel better than ever. I agree on that buffoon Emrick. Even if I wanted to play video games again or the NHL game, I could never listen to his sick voice. Im fairly certain that Dic’s wife makes him sleep on the couch more often than not!! LOL
Same thing anyways, but *Doc’s wife
Anybody backing the Rangers at 30-1 odds for Stanley Cup champions? According to Bodog’s list released today.
Miss Universe is on “E” channel! Just started! Don’t miss it!
Not only did I get carped last thread, but I seriously BANJed!!
Chick from my hometown Odessa, Ukraine is in the top 16!!!! wooooohoooo!! Go Odessa!
i do not have the new NHL game yet. I’ll probably buy it tomorrow if the gamefly will not send it. what is your PS3 name? mine is CCCP_94
Can’t wait to pick up NHL 12 tonight!!
You guys need to get xbox kinect!!!
CCCP – It was on last night on NBC. Spoiler alert! (nah, I don’t know who won.)
my names grabachev cccp!! i know. easy to remember!. anyway, found the games first glitch. im in gm mode, im playing the prospect game before the entry draft and all of a sudden the crowd starts cheering ” WE WANT THE CUP”. ok i know its nt a big deal or really even that funny of a glitch, but for forearm shivers sake, its a pitchforkin meanigless game. its not the nhl, its not a stanley cup finals let alone playoff game.
cccp n wick- the game features a replay tracker of every goal,shot, hit penalty, basically everything u wuld wanna see a replay of in teh pause menu. and it shows different cam angles too. there a shot tracker showing u where youre deb placing most of your shots and so u can change it up so you dont keep hitting high glove side or the goalie will predict if u keep shooting same height or side of net. anyways i think thats because theres a better goalie A.I. and they learn to adapt more than in previous games. i think, not sure but i thought the goalies were supposed to be more interactive this time and make more unpredictable savesand stuff. huh huh, thank u drive thru
You’re right Spider…Chick from Angola won! Damn it! Odessa girls are still the best!
Grabby – I’ll add you later
Odessa, Ukraine baby!!! Hot and smart!
cccp ive ever played online yet. im tooscared oflosing really bad because i cant deke and do any cool stuff. i just take slaps and wrists. once in a great while i’ll pull some sweet goal out of my cooke cutter, the only way i can deke and do nice moves is when i play up-down but im better at everything else playing side to side in broadcast view. mayeb its cuz im so used to the old controls. i still dont wanna learn the new control.. i tried it and didnt like it.
i know iwas kiddin cccp. ukraine is the shiznit. i love it there in springtime
mcilrath looked like crap today didnt he? or maybe it was the other big d men we got. i couldnt tell half t time because they wouldnt stfu about everything but the game that was on. it was unbearable trying to figure out whos wo and listening to them talk to rod brindamour! who gives a fat fug bout him??
Do you still have the NHL11? I’ll play you if you want
CC, I think once the new NHL comes out, online play for previous game is cancelled. I could be wrong on that though.
thanks, and you have ps3 like the rest of these yayhoos??
well, you almost won!!
Online play for older versions of games generally stick around. Simple reason why, not everyone can afford to buy each newer version that comes out. So they continue playing the older versions online. Orr could be right on the NHL. But I dont think that it’s the case, especially now that PS3 users have to pay an extra $10 for online subscription for each game i.e. FIFA, NHL, etc.
yeah wicky…almost doesn’t count. but i am still very proud of my home girl!
online play for NHL 11 is still on… i just played
Can we have Crosby as is, with a discount?
Can we send Avery by first occasion using human traffickers to the Mexican Hockey League?
Can we all chip in and buy a dozen Italian silk ties for Tortorella together with an Oxford edition of “Refined manners and proper vocabulary for Royals”?
It is my new column. “How can I help my team?”
not sure if anybody posted it yet but here is the Sather interview;
