Here are a couple of interviews, then I have to run:
Gotta run to football. See youse later.
Yes Predictions abound!
It’s ok, Carp….I should’ve used the sarcasm sign in that post anyway….
Avery creating a temporary sugar fix for glucose addicted Rangers fans. But Rangers producing ADP not the good energy ATP. This team is a basement dweller. Joe Thornton says so.
C6, H12, 06,
I guess we will see how Bel Biv Deveaux responds to positive reinforcement.
Wash that positivity right out of your hair, and let the sun shine in with a long overdue top 5 pick.
Bob, O ye of the Grecian Formula fan club for men and wayward basement dwellers
I’m glad Bahama Bomba isn’t getting scratched. He deserves another chance to play.
Avery can sit in the crowd. Maybe that will cause MSG to make some noise, instead of just texting and whispering.
Caps fans were raucous to the point of causing ruckus…MSG is as loud a roomful of monks with a decades long vow of silence!
Monk takes a vow of silence upon entering monastery. After 7 years he says to the head monk,”Cold.” ....He waits another 7 years and says,’Hungry.’’...finally after 21 years he approaches the head monk, and is interrupted before speaking by the head monk who says,” Don’t say a another word. All you’ve done is complain since you’ve been here!”
Sean sounds subdued and very careful with what he says…Good question by Carp about whether Torts understands it’s not just a regular player….Was Torts clear on that?
I thought Tortorella answered most of the questions pretty well. You can’t really say that Avery is a special case because that’s not fair to the guys that have been with the team, etc., etc. Part of my issue is I don’t think Tortorella really believes this team has the tools to play consistently well, and in essence he’s just going to be riding the hot hand from one shift to the next. Maybe that’s the only way to catch a team with a serious talent deficit, but I also don’t think there’s any grand plan either.
For the rest of the clowns(to celebrate an entrance):
torts had an interesting comment about the D man situation I thought…makes me think they are adding from outside the organization
isn’t it the coach’s job to get them to play consistently??
and then if he is doing his job properly and some players are not playing consistently isn’t it the GMs job to get players that play consistently in the system the coach is implementing?
I understand guys will have an “off” game, but an “off” game and a 10 game looking like crap stretch are two different things IMHO.
Do reporters even ask Torts about Staal anymore?
Is there some secret agreement among reporters not to ask about him since it is clear that he will be out for the season?
Wick, you can make that argument, but it’s really up to the players to be consistent. I mean, can you imagine Torts telling EC to play tough? That’s like asking a newborn baby to lift a dumbbell. Point being, you can only ask so much from a coach, cause he doesn’t have complete control over the way his team plays.
Maybe Stahl was a dream, and we never had a Marc Stahl. Imagine that?!
I agree with you, but then I feel like management should go out and get guys he can work with to motivate if they need, not lost causes so to speak
I just want some closure. I don’t want this to turn into a Crosby-esque issue where it’s just constant speculation from people who have no idea what they’re talking about.
When do we play Carolina so we can watch Stall’s less talented, idiot brother skate around the rink?
Lack of Stahl update is the opposite of cindy Crosby when he heard about every time he went in a stall to take a cccp or doodie machetto.
Getting a little weird. Are they using the Mets crack medical staff?
Noah – There’s no point in media even asking about Staal at this point. There is no news until there is some new news. In truth, at best he won’t be back until Jan. and that’s if he start skating within the next week or so. It’ll take a few weeks of conditioning and skating. Then, it’ll take a few weeks of practicing which is hard in NYR busy schedule. Then, you still have to get to part where Crosby is at which is taking contact in practice and seeing how you react to it.
You’re probably right, Wick. But, it’s hard to find guys like that without giving up someone/something significant.
Speaking of acquiring a player, the Flames and Sens are apparently trying to acquire Kyle Turris.
I think there’s a deadline, I was reading, if he doesn’t get signed by December, he can’t play in the NHL this season. It would be pretty screwed up for Maloney to not trade him before then.
Carp – you covering new ro v. No Rock? Over/under is 13 for that game.
I think it goes all the way to the top. I think it’s the Lord’s job to make sure people are born with the get up and go to play this sport properly. If they can’t do that then they don’t deserve the Lord’s Cup. Therefore, I blame the Lord.
if it is all up to the players, then why have the coach at all?
I would be shocked if he wasn’t traded by that deadline. I think the yotes said if he signed a deal that they would trade him after if they could and he won’t even sign the deal I guess, so it is very interesting!
the jock strap thing again??
Then Praise the Lord Manny
BDubi17 Brandon Dubinsky
Cruising home with Wojwitka and Wolski….practice was strong and we welcome back Avery!
You can tell a lot about a person by who he associates himself with!!!!
Just like he stuck it to the Yotes, maybe they’re sticking it to him?
yep, but if he isn’t going to play, get something for him right??
I think Turris gets traded before the Dec. 1 deadline. When you still have a month on a deadline it’s sounds great that Don Maloney is standing his ground on the issue but when it comes down to it, he’s going to want to get something for him. Turris is not the first guy who has wanted out of a team and won’t be the last.

CC, good point, and I’ll take it even further! Why have a GM? Why can’t the players choose who plays for the team, and who should be traded? Let them do it!
I get why the Yotes want to sign and trade. It’s the only way they can get a fair trade, as opposed to trading him unsigned, and being taken advantage of.

I wonder where he ends up??
I wonder what is up with strahlman??
I wonder what is up with nick schultz??
I wonder what is up with franson??
lol, sorry… that should look a lot cooler :/
Ok, we all get the point, AVERY.
This place becomes more and more like a Cult everyday!
Yes, Manny, and this is our chant!
Did anyone happen to see the “Beginnings” feature with Ryan Callahan? His family is awesome…you can really see where he gets his personality from.
And his wife’s not bad to look at either. Well done, sir!
With many of the guys recently married (Henrik, Staal, Cally), I wonder who Dubi hits the town with in search of his soul mate. Apparently, it’s Wolski and Woywitka??
Sean Avery, come get the Stanley Cup!
Rangers supposedly talking trade with the Leaves to get Dman Cody Franson. he is good with the puck, has a good shot, but is weak in his own zone.
Callaman is married?? When the hell did that happen? No wonder he’s always getting injured!
I found this picture from his wedding. My question is, why is Del Zaster’s shirt unbuttoned??
are you umm…cody?
Why has Franson barely played this year?
Oh no! Googling for pictures of this chick, I came across a half nude pic of Chara! My eyes!!!!
Is that Chaz Bono in front?
Callahan told the story of how they got engaged. He was so nervous that he didn’t eat any of his steak that night at dinner.
EAT CALLY! YOU’RE SKIN AND BONES!
I’m in a cult !!!
Dubi looks hammered there! LOL!
I thought it was Richard Park!
Looks like MDZ had too many Shirley Temples…
I watched a couple leaf games where Franson did not look good, thus he is benched most nights in favor of the younger, smaller Jake Gardiner, who is still learning his own zone, but is better than franson
I did Noah – that series was really good.
That picture is amazing. I am going to invite those guys to my wedding. I will just require that Del Zaster drink virgin martinis and keep his shirt buttoned.
The question is, cody, is Franson an upgrade over Eminger and/or Woywhatever? Because NYR are rumored to be talking to the Leafs aboot a d-man, and his name came up.
Shirley Temples FTW!
You could tell Cally is hammered. His face looks like a Red Wings jersey.
What happened to Newman? He asked a question and then left.
in the offensive zone, yes, he is an upgrade. in the defensive zone, no he is not
Orr the picture you posted is from Staal’s wedding.
FanCam hates Avery! EGOMANIAC!
you are too hard on yourself
wouldn’t it be funny if the d man in question is komi not cody?? LMFAO, but it would suck!
speaking of d men, has anyone seen LW since his boy valabik wasn’t claimed on waivers??
I’m a bit worried about him!!
LW said he was headed to a game in CT, wick. I am sure he’s already fistfighting in the streets
I was afraid he would be that upset about valabik, taking out his anger on anyone he can find!!
Zuccarello with another 2 assists today…
Watch out people of Bridgeport!
That’s as many assists as Christensen has ALL YEAR
Oh Dip! Manny with the stinger!
“Zuccarello with another 2 assists today…”
he’s found his home – The AHL ;)
I didn’t listen to the Avery interview but I loved it and everything he said is 100% correct.
That’s OK, MD. I don’t watch, and have never played, Hockey but I love the Rangers! Woo Hoo!
I love Artie-Partie – http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=N8v25LuAPCY
I wish nobody would tender offers including Turris. Not to screw over Don Maloney, who I wish was still with the NYR, but just to teach that kid a lesson.
Oh right, it’s Stahl’s wedding, which is why Cally’s so drunk. No ball and chain there to limit his booze.
I hate it when Giagnome interviews Artie. He asks him way too many questions. Give the guy a break!
I think Giagnome is just taking a piss with him there
(British term for the sole pleasure of LW)
Make a play…shoot the puck…young pup in big city. Good thing he has mentors like aves to show him the ropes
Artie’s a culture buff! he likes museums and Broadway shows!
....And Stargate Atlantis! Hey, it beats GLEE
buff? Artie needs to buff up!
you guys seen this?! amazing!
Don’t forget to bring a towel!
LOL! That’s cool!
“I wish nobody would tender offers including Turris. Not to screw over Don Maloney, who I wish was still with the NYR, but just to teach that kid a lesson.”
You must really hate Erixon, huh? Pulled the same maneuver but without have even played a pro game.
I’d love to open up the PHX and NYC pipeline again, pick up Turris for a little less than market and assume the rumors that he wouldn’t be asking $4MM per outside of Phoenix are true. Can never have too much talent.
(I swear this is true: As I was typing the second word of the last sentence, I hit the E before the N and had to go back and correct. Probably the hockey gods talking there.)
Nah, I don’t hate Erixon. He’s Eurotrash. He didn’t know any better.
Just when I thought the Yankees LH Blog was good – this Ranger one is gonna be a GREAT outlet for me this year. Let the bashing and the lack of hockey perspective BEGIN!

Hmmm…Klein endorst ? I notice a similarity there…....
Hey Kleinendorst – thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to tell all your friends about Rangers Report – the best blog on the internet!
kleinend – is it a coincidence that your post hit at 4:20?....are you a stoner? boner? a loner? de-throne her?
i dont too much for money, cause money cant buy me love…..oh wait a minute…..money can buy me LUV…know what i be sayin?...over here baby….its brutha eddies….ova here baby….
I’m safely back from CT. Thanks for the concern.
It was some school kids event at the game, hence the 11am start. Like watching hockey in the middle of a Justin Bieber concert. (I’m guessing. CCCP could probably confirm.)
Whale much the better team, but managed to blow a two goal lead in the third and lose in OT with a D-man sliding on his stomach as the winner went in. We want Avery. VPG seemed to play about three minutes even at that level, but managed to squeeze in a stupid penalty.
Shortly off to salubrious Newark to herald the return of the great Fatso.

I know what you be sayin, eddie3
LW- How did J.A.M. look?, I know he had 2 today.
He looked OK, dde. Went to the net hard on the two goals, though two great passes from MZA meant he didn’t have much work to do.
Probably a but more noticeable than Hagelin and Bourque, for example, because he’s playing with Mitchell and MZA.
Is JAM Justin Miller? Because I like that kid.
So MZA with some nice passes, thanks and say Hi to Fatso for me.
If he does things hard then he’s going to be well liked by Joe Mich.
Johnny JAM – Jonathan Audy-Marchessault
Thanks, dde – isn’t Justin Miller playing elsewhere right now?
Sorry for the million questions – theoretically his name seems too common to not make googling him a difficult task.
I can just keep going here by myself noting all my idiot remarks. It’s not Justin Miller that was just the name of a buddy of mine in college. I am a moron…
JT Miller? Plymouth in the OHL.
Sweet borselino, Manny…
I’m not sure who you’re thinking of Manny, John Mitchell?
Thanks, LW my British Comrade. JT = Johnathan I believe. I went to college with a kid named Justin Miller and he had a mohawk that was purple so I guess it stood out in my mind. He also threw up all over my house and broke my guitar amplifier (same night)
Thanks, NYR – just here to embarrass myself!
Was it JT Miller?
Yea- that looks (and sounds) like him. Such a distinct voice for a male athlete – how could I forget? And what a guitarist!
that vid is hysterical Lev!
sorry about valabik, you going to be ok?
a little rebound dinner with fatso to make you feel better?
“It was some school kids event at the game, hence the 11am start. Like watching hockey in the middle of a Justin Bieber concert. (I’m guessing. CCCP could probably confirm.)”
well…since i am the only “expert” on Justin Bieber (i personally call him J. Boobale) around here, and since i have ALL of his wonderful songs on CD! i confirm the statement above!
ok, off the listen to some new J. Boobale records! xoxo :)
Mister Delaware – Turris said the word about him wanting $4 million was BS. Of course, he didn’t say how much he was really looking for, and I think his entry level was paying him $2.6 million I believe, but that was probably with bonuses and all.
Did you guys know that this occurs regularly? There are conventions for it. Maybe the Rangers should sign one of these bruisers!
Go Hartnell [vomit]
Why does Versus show clips of Jagr scoring as a Pen, Crapital, Flyer, and then when they show him scoring as a Ranger, it’s him getting destroyed by Orpik. Is Versus trying to say something there??
Flyers 1-0. Sabs look dead.
2-0 Flyers. Miller looks dead.
Hartnell scores! 3-0! Fire Ruff??
So…change of plan. Not at the Devils game – trains to Newark were all Byfugliened up.
I’ll have to amuse myself watching it on TV (or what should be a desperately close Sabres-Flyers game) while crying into my Boris Valabik scrapbook.
somewhat random but…
i know many of you travel overseas and some of you live there, what i would like to ask is this:
Anyone heading to the Czech Republic, more specifically Liberec within the next month or two? IF so, I would like to talk jersey with you
I think I am going to kill my upstairs neighbors tonight! Call me crazy but I think they’re playing bowling in their living room for the past two hours! I have a freaking pathophysiology exam tomorrow morning and I can’t focus on my study because all I hear is them rolling bowling balls upstairs!! I hate this building!
Thank you for listening. I hope some of you will visit me in jail.
still having trouble with those lunatics C3? oy
the man goes to starbucks to study…. i guess my screaming at the tv or computer during games does not make for a relaxing study environment.
Hahahaha!!! Fire Ruff, indeed! Miller, too!
>>>Why does Versus show clips of Jagr scoring as a Pen, Crapital, Flyer, and then when they show him scoring as a Ranger, it’s him getting destroyed by Orpik. Is Versus trying to say something there??
Don’t forget, ORR – Versus (NBC/Comcast) is like the Flyers “home channel”.....you wouldn’t expect them to ever show anything about the NYR in a good light, would you?
Yeah, still having issues with my retarded neighbors.
I hate Starbucks more than I hate my neighbors! I guess I have to put earplugs in, otherwise I can’t focus at all!
Don’t kill them, C3 – unless you want to work in a prison hospital!!
that is the main reason why i do NOT want to live in an apartment BUILDING! i dont want upstairs OR downstairs neighbors! blah!!
Good luck with your exam C3, I know you’ll kick the carcillo out of it
Bob does not condone violence or neighbors.
Torts is cruisin’ for a bruisin’ with Ranger fans. His act is the one that’s getting old fast, not Aves. We want Avery and we want him in the lineup NOW.
Brodiva is look great in his first game back.
I think it’s pretty safe to say this is his final year. See ya!!
Avery will not prevent a non-playoff finish. Joe Thornton knowns hockey: this is a flaccid Rangers team boosted only by their proclivity at goalie. Sather’s profligate spending has brought neither wins or the future possibility of wins.
5-3! LOL! Lupul with the hat trick
Del Zuccotti park is only good at unbuttoning his shirt and doing the Macarena while other guests look on with cocaine addled eyes.
Marty is probably distracted by Avery already.
I have never had any neighbors issues before I bought this freaking apartment. It depends on the building…the one i live in now is paper thin! You can hear everyhing…but lesson learned, for sure. And thanks for good luck wishes.
You game me a great idea! I can finish my degree in prison and work in a prison hospital! I’m digging it! Two rabbits with ine stone! Now I will definitely take care of my neighbors! Thanks for the idea! ;)
3C’s and a P where is the o?, if the walls are paper thin have you thought of maybe doing some origami with them?
Making something out of nothing,
Just turn your Bieber tunes up a bit louder to drown out the noise from above, CCCP
CCCP, Good luck on your exam. Ear PLUGS are what you need. I used to wear them at the university library when other people were talking and I needed to study. The foam, yellow or orange ones from the drugstore. Good luck.
Maybe the NY ‘Charminy’ Soft Rangers can get Jamie Lundmark back or Pavel ‘Ivan’ Brendl…now there were two wonderful homegrown picks.
The other night the walls were turning into origami by themselves…but then again, maybe it was the acid 8-}
And I will not turn my Boobale tunes up because those d-nuzzle might actually like them and the last thing I wanna do is please them!
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, C3!!!! I want to keep you out in the regular world! I may need some good medical help someday, and I don’t want to go to prison to get it! ;-D
Maybe wavey gravey is living above you???? LIKE OMG!!! OMG!!
OMB, Oh My BOB!
>>>5-3! LOL! Lupul with the hat trick
Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarty’s looking great!! Now, if The Monster can make a few saves in the 3rd, it’s a great homecoming for the Debbies…...
Goid luck with your exam, CCCP.
Marty looks solid. In his waist, that is. 5-3 Toronto and he should’ve at least had 2 of them.
Now, Steve Cangialosi makes a long pause after each of Chico’s regular comments. And you could almost hear him say : “What the byfuiglen did he just say?”.
i might know someone that could help…(wink wink) with your “attic” pest problem!
Good luck, CCCP.
lmfao solid in the waist! Classic!
I actually need for the Devils to win this game. Fuggin Gustavsson. Of course, as always Kovalchuckles is doing nothing, Just one secondary assist. The loser has two goals this season, I think
Waste of money.
leave the monster out of this, he needs to win
I’m playing captain waiver happy in one of the blog leagues
Yeah, I’m the same way.
I was referring to you
Good luck, CCCP. don’t lose your temper … the test is more important than vengeance.
Lin, they were showing some old playoff game in MSG last night … I saw old tennis balls/pillow hands as a youth on Montreal.
lmao carp! I should have brought you a tennis ball last week!!
well if you change your mind about “help”, some of my friends still live on my street in NYC
TPCH has to be the smallest, biggest tool ever! He’s on Jim Gray level
lmao carp, Pierre Shiny Skull McGuire
That piece of carcillo, Hartnell?
so, why TPCH?
It is very dishartnelling of you…
lmao carp how could you forget? I can’t write it here, you’ll ban me!! I’ll email it to ya lol
is pierre a prust-head?
I’ve been eating B&J for the entire month of October, and I lost six lbs. How is that even possible? I must have some kind of EC virus that prevents me from gaining weight, muscle or fat.
If my posts are inconsistent, then I definitely have the virus!!
Beavis & Butt-head at midnight.
Aaawwww you guys are so nice! Thank you all for the good luck wishes! I’m gonna need it lol
My professor, she is really tough and demanding…but she’s a good teacher. For some reason, every hard professor I’ve had is a female. Why is that?
Thanks for the offer but coat check master can take care of his own problems alone! ;)
(been sick this evening)
good luck with your test
and btw CCCP
heard about your problem
real Boneheads would help hide the bodies
btw, CCCP, I also think it would be a GREAT idea to get Ovi. He is being benched in Washington=unhappy player. He would love the change of scenery that a move to NYC would give him.
I’m pretty sure if OvechCANT really wanted to, he could have Humpty Dumpty, not only fall off a wall, but also get fired.
Hide the bodies! :)
Yeah I also think that the Craps owner will fire both the GM and coach before he trades Ovi. But the idea of having Alex on this team is very nice
CC, you watch Breaking Bad, you know how to properly dispose of those bodies!
That’s right! Melt them in acid! I miss that show. Are you watching “Homeland” on Showtime? Great new show.
