  1. >>>We had gas lines in the ‘70s.

    That’s why I asked if Jimmy Carter had joined the team, Carp! :-)

  2. Carp – Did you see my post about the MSG post game show? How do u blow off Torts presser for a repeat of a radio show 12 hrs old and not even up to date, especially given today’s events.

  3. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© " Don't stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Rangers win again and it don’t look like they are gonna be slowing down any time soon. With the best goalie in the league and young core of dmen play really well , I d say we gonna be kicking azz more often.

    Doing well, thank you! What’s going down in Woodside?

    ORR

    Yeah wicky is ahead so far. I hate to brag about perfect record but I did the other day and now I’m losing! But it’s ok…still 4 days to go.

  5. Nothing much happening here, C3 – I was just wondering if those girly-girls were still paying the bills for you down there? I may come by for a visit soon, and I want your top gals!

    just funny to muse about how well souray is playing and how almost everyone here was like he sucks don’t get him

  9. Oh, and C3, when we come down there, we want the finest devochki from *your* part of the world, not the garden-variety Brooklyn locals!!

  10. I know, Wicky – I saw a feature on Souray on NHL Live earlier in the day that was calling him the comeback player of the year, so far…….in this early part of the season.

  11. I do think we will trade for a defenseman at some point but it wont be Souray.

    Hopefully, though, it’ll be someone better than Caber.

    I was just kidding about souray folks

    WTF, how the hell do you get the jersey codes for NHL12 online??

    Didn’t we just acquire a D-man? He hasn’t even dressed for a game yet. Wish we had kept Gilroy, and dumped Eminger.

  15. The GAS line is cooking on gas right now. Richards is doing his job as a mentor well, he just needs to get the Doobie going.
    Kudos to Aves for going at it with Konopka who is 15-20 lbs heavier, taller and a full-time goon – a slip, but no KO.
