Day 4 with no hockey … what are we, camels?

Posted By Carp On April 11, 2012 @ 4:05 am In Hockey,New York Rangers,NHL | 56 Comments

So, to help satisfy your hockey urge, to quench your thirst for pucks, we will have a Stanley Cup playoffs Live Chat today at 2 p.m. Bring your comments/questions right here. Quit your job if you have to. Whatever it takes. Or else.

*******************************************

Seriously, I’m going to solve another problem for the NHL:

In the future, have the Western Conference season end Saturday and the Western Conference playoffs start Wednesday, and have the Eastern season end Sunday (but not Easter Sunday) and the Eastern playoffs start Thursday. … or go Friday-Tuesday, Saturday-Wednesday.

This time off is just dreadful for your fans. You are shooting yourselves in the skate again, giving people reasons to go watch baseball, or find something else to do, when there’s nothing they’d rather be doing than watching hockey.

You’re welcome.
—Carp

*********************************************

Hope to have my match-ups done tonight, or else first thing tomorrow. And my predictions. And whatever else I can squeeze in between practice and the chat and, hopefully, some sleep and nourishment. I plan to post audio from practice, including some Chris Kreider stuff.

Reminder: Our little Sally, a/k/a Hambone, is running the third sometimes-annual Paul Mara playoff beard extravaganza at her site: Zetterburger.com. Or you can click here for info [1], or to enter. Please do.

Also, I am looking for volunteers to do the Three Rangers Stars for each playoff game. I already have a few. If you’re interested, drop me an e-mail at rcarpini@lohud.com.

Finally, because this is probably the most-anticipated playoff the Rangers have had in 18 years, and maybe the second or third most-anticipated since 1971 or thereabouts, please tell some friends or other fans about Rangers Report. I see that a bunch of our regulars are finding their way back here. I’d love it if we could use this opportunity to grow our readership. And I’d appreciate your help. Spread the word. Thanks.
