Back to the table, back to the Yankees … and NYR news

So the sides are going to get back to the, ahem, bargaining table today, supposedly. Remember, the players lost their paychecks Monday (Oct. 15). The next one would be due at the end of the month.

I truly believe both sides know exactly where the deal is going to be made, but that neither side—especially the players side—wants to make a sudden move toward that number because of, perhaps mistrust, or fear that the other side will see that move as weakness and dig in to try to get more.

Silly stuff, really. I think they will get there somehow. I expect hockey by Thanksgiving. But that’s a total guess.

From the NYR:

NEW YORK RANGERS AND USA HOCKEY INVITE KIDS TO TRY HOCKEY FOR FREE

New York, October 15, 2012 – The  New York Rangers will team up with USA Hockey and community ice rinks across the tri-state area to host the second annual “Try Hockey for Free Day” to celebrate “Come Play Youth Hockey Month” throughout November. The month-long event will introduce the sport to over 1,500 children ages 4-9 through free skating and hockey lessons at ten participating rinks in the area. Rangers alumni Adam Graves, Nick Fotiu, Brian Mullen, Ron Greschner, and Dave Maloney will be on hand throughout the program to help teach the basics of the sport. Complimentary rental skates and a limited supply of loaner equipment will be available at each rink, and every child who attends “Try Hockey for Free Day” will receive a free Rangers hockey stick.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to get the chance to play the greatest game on Earth,” said Rangers legend Adam Graves.  “These are kids that might not otherwise be able to experience the game of hockey.  They are sure to love it and hopefully this ignites a lifelong passion for the sport.”

Participating rinks include Danbury Arena (Danbury, CT), Floyd Hall Arena (Little Falls, NJ), Playland Ice Casino (Rye, NY), World Ice Arena (Flushing, NY), City Ice Pavilion (Long Island City, NY), Brewster Area (Brewster, NY), Ice Time Sports Complex (Newburgh, NY), McCann Ice Arena (Poughkeepsie, NY) Skylands Ice World (Stockholm, NJ) Oyster Bay Skating Center (Bethpage, NY).
