New York, November 9, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Mike Rupp underwent successful surgery earlier today to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, and is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks. The procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Feldman at the NYU Langone Medical Center Hospital for Joint Diseases in Manhattan.

Rupp, 31, has registered one goal and 14 penalty minutes in seven games this season. He has missed the last six games due to injury. Rupp is tied for second on the team with two fighting majors. He tallied his first point as a Ranger with the game-winning goal on October 18 at Vancouver, and made his Rangers debut in the season opener on October 7 against the Los Angeles Kings in Stockholm, Sweden. The nine-year NHL veteran skated in his 500th career NHL contest on October 15 at Long Island.

Quwat?

first! new thread Manny! lol

Never sign a player that has won a Cup with the Devils!

Curse you Orr!

Glad Rupp isn’t out for too long.

I agree Orr!

I find myself in two places at once..it is a strange feeling!

SMayered!!!

“Cain’t we all just get along?”

From the Emoticon Guy (according to my pal Manny)! ;-D

oh man, this is priceless

LMFAO, I don’t know how long I can take this

When will Sather just stop signing enforcers? Brashear, Boogaard (and I’m not even talking about him dying), Rupp. Always ends in disaster.

Good evening all! Sean forgot to say new post! How many people are going to BANJ now? :)

My sides are splitting from that last thread. Double LMAO….too many posts to respond to except, Ria, I thought the same thing!!!

LGR!

Meanwhile, guys he’s traded for, Orr, Shelley, Prust, have all been valuable.

doodie

the last thread is what is ending in disaster

Yeah, I forget Shelley was actually pretty decent.

Nobody beats Orr though, in my time as a Rangers fan, at least.

mama

that last thread is just brutal the only way to understand it all is to read it all

Simon was the best enforcer we have had IMHO

the jibberish is beautiful though

hello mrs. wicky?

nope the other one

that thing is like the energizer bunny

I liked Simon, but I became a fan during his last year here. I think he was traded to the Flames that season.

I think we might have to send the FDNY to rescue Latona & Manny from the previous post! LMFAO at those 2 HmmmmmmMaybe some one gave them a time out LOL

ORR was the best “enforcer” the NYR’s have had since Joey Kocur – and before him, Nicky Fotiu…

They need the hose Ria! Also, I think they’ve been hitting the thesaurus :)

That’s my opinion, anyway – in terms of fighting fearsomeness, anyway – Simon was good, but short-lived as a Ranger…..

Hi, Mama!!

Hi Jimbo!!! Help me, I’m having a major brain cramp on remembering the name of the other beloved fearless fighter … Hartnell! And it’s not Langdon….wtb!

Mama — I did say, “New post.” Somebody forgot how to read…

The bozos are still BANJing on the last thread. Geez, Carp will have a migraine whe he has to determine the winner….

He had some of the best fights too. A bunch of knockouts, including the greatest of them all against Fedork. That was epic. That loser running around throwing cheapshots at Prucha, Jagr, Ortmeyer. Then the next meeting, he leaves the ice on a stretcher. I love it!

Forgot how to read, Sean? What makes you think those clowns ever knew how to read? :-)

Indeed you did. And a clever one indeed! Better late than never :)

smayer November 9th, 2011 at 4:56 pm

New post. smayer strikes again!

Mama, I forget, too – Ed Hospodar was one, but after the Clark Gillies fight, he ceased to be a factor….Reg Fleming (RIP) was another of our earlier pugilists, but none were as “knockout feared” as Orr, IMHO….

We had Eric Cairns and Dale Purinton…..coud it be either one of those guys…?

“could”

No no no….oy, this is driving me crazy!!

ilb, hey, we’re all Rhodes scholars here….

I loved that Fedoruk execution, ORR – the dipship was never the same after that “schooling”....

Time period, mama!?

This day is moving waaay too slow. I wish it were go time already!

God help us, not Mick Vukota, and Islander castoff that we had for a short time…..?

Or Nick Kypreos!? He had an ignominious end, too….

Got it! OK, sorry, I wasn’t thinking best fighter like Orr, Fotiu etc….more along the lines of pesky, scrappy agitator (no, not who you’d think I’d say

So, I may have been confused, but at least my brain is now uncramped.

carcillo! my answer got erased somehow!! wtb! I was thinking Tikkanen…..

What have you “got”, Mama!?

Oh, Tikk!! Well, he’s a completely different kind of player…I thought you meant heavyweight brawlers…

Jimbo, my brain is obviously still a tad tangled….I never got lunch today (no points for me). I think I need pre-game nutrition…..

Jimbo, agreed. As I said….brain cramp.

wow, so I am the forgotten one to RIA and whomever else on the last thread…thanks a lot!!

Hahaha!!! OK, Mama! I should be working on a paying job here instead of shooting the breeze about departed NYR enforcers, anyway..

Lunch points!? After the last thread, I’m not a-gonna comment on that subject! :-O

Chris Nilan :)

You’re never forgotten here in Jimboland, Wickster!

Off for chow…later all you nutheads :)

Oh, yeah!!! “Knuckles” Nilan! How could I forget him!?

Artie Lange and Nick DePaolo do

their best Don Cherry imitations

Enjoy, Mama!

jimbo

thanks, clearly me not leaving my wingman means i have been removed form ria’s sightline

Aaron Voros was a damn good goon for us too. Never forget!

a wicky…this may be first in RR history…2 simultaneous threads…LMAO!

Voros – hahahaha!!!! Pleeeeeeease?

and I ‘ve gone cross eyed

I really like Joey Kocur as well – he was so feared that opposing tough guys didn’t want to dance with him that often. Kocur hit HARD.

I think I remember a game where he scored a goal and the puck wound up going through the goal netting!

btw

was there news in regards to Wolski’s surgery yesterday?

jpg

thought we lost you in bizzaro thread

add mine to the list

unless i’m too late

Rangers 17, Senators 1

IMHO Nick Fotiu was the best. He wasn’t a knock-out puncher, he just turned his opponents face into bloody hamburger meat. Golden Gloves experience. Several encounters with Flyers come to mind, but I can’t recall their names. (might be Foley?) But maybe it was Sather who punched Foley’s lights out. It’s tough to get old – the memory just fades away.

Voros = The Best

PJ Stock had brass balls during his time here in the mid to late 90s. Always good for a couple of good fights.

Carp said contest open until his ‘Go Time’ post.

There’s nothing official about my list there, I was just curious, I started to feel like Messier in the marathon pretty quickly though. About 200 entries.

Hoping for a 3-1 Ranger win; GWG: Dubinsky (!); Shots: Rangers 23 and Senators 34.

LGR.

Seems I’ve obliterated Manny, and now he’s too ashamed of himself to appear. Guess I’ll join you all over here until The Dark One re-emerges.

Not posting the predictions of Senators victories, dde?

So I’m home for a game for the first time this season. Watching this Beginnings show with Callahan. Pretty interesting.

and again I guess I don’t count latona??

I’m still in bizarro post until now that is

My favorite Rangers fighter was Mark Janssens. He was tough and mean, none of this pat on the back after a tango for him.

and aback again

wicky,

You’re on my team now! You were possessed by Manny, so I wasn’t obliterating wicky. You had no power over what you were saying, until I freed you from his unyielding horrors.

Latona you backstabbing horticulturist. You disgust me with your willy nilly loyalties and your modern day absurdities. You sit at your home with your feet in a Dr. Scholls foot bath soaking away. You never have known the real world. What it’s like to work, nay, slave in the dark for a few pennies or morsels of day old bread. Keep filling your hands with lotions, your hair with rare oils and your belly with carbohydrates. I will continue to represent the people!

Manny,

Let’s not subject the nice RR citizens to your hate-mongering. Take your act back to the smayer’d thread.

LW- We won’t be needing those.

Domi and Kocur on same team with Gravy and Boomer. Ah, those were the days…

Don’t forget Darren Langdon – very skilled pugilist.

Nucks Nilan was toward the end of his run.

Most entertaining was vandenbusshe – was like Aaron pryer, just kept throwing punches

Pryor

Prediction – Devo v konopka??
