Bring your questions, comments, ideas, thoughts, j(g)ibberish, whatever. Ya boys are off the ice today, so we can chat it up through lunch time.
Don’t forget to follow me on twitter (yes, me, on twitter) @RangersReport.
First. Whats this stuff on the ground?
Put on your skates and try it out!;>)) But lLooks a little too fluffy for that, at the moment.
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change in mood
And saved in part
I day I have rued
3 days Heads!...3 days!
Could see Gomez going to the Leafs and Redden to the Isles both for $1m or under
When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
hahaha! read this Debbies fans want Gomez back in the swamp!!
Check out today’s Google Doodle ‘Heads!
What’s all this white stuff on the ground!
Oh, I’m in Miami, so it’s something else …
Boneheads fantasy hockey on Yahoo: ID 54580, password torts. Drafting tomorrow night. Three more spots!
Why wouldn’t the Rangers buy out Redden? They would end up paying him less and get the cap hit in these season when they have the space to absorb it.
At least I think they have the space…
Gomez to devs for a mil makes lots of sense. Redden I could see in Ottawa again or isles.
Watch Gomez will be back in Jersey to help fill the void after Parise left.
Redden will end up an Islander, to fill in for the Russian that doesn’t want to play for them.
My question is, will they haunt the Rangers this year, or help us :)
Personally, I like to see past Rangers do well. Just don’t get the game winning goal against us.
It’s not like it was Redden’s or Gomez fault for getting overpaid. Anyone of us fans would gladly sign a contract that is going to make mulit MILLIONS of dollars. To bad their contracts hurt their careers.
So if one thing happens from the CBA, these type of contracts are going to dry up, now that the loop holes are closed on buring them.
Carp – if the players get bought out, and they will. And get signed for $1M, why would that $1M come off the “Rangers” Cap amount? That to me just makes perfect common sense.
Gomez will get his $7.1M from Montreal, plus what he signs with another team, he will end up one of the top 5 players paid this year. That’s just CRAZY…..
Still have to laugh at how Sather traded his way out of that contract, and get McD in return, and space to sign Gaborik. Best move of his career!
I think we need Christensen back
SON OF A MOTHA!!!
My wife made “dinner plans” for us (eye roll) with old friends on Saturday nite at 7!!!
What kind of world are we living in? Dinner Fascists!!!!
F that. It’s Ramgers time, NOT boring dinner time.
Exactly! What’s wrong with that quiet little table for four, in front of the Rangers game??
This is Fat Guy’s chance to live the dream – excusing himself from dinner every 15 minutes to run back and forth to the Garden – changing clothes and replacing face paint along the way. I smell a hit sitcom in there somewhere!
Anybody ever think about the Lisin for Korpikoski trade and curse themselves? I think about that trade occassionally.
Good morning, Sally!
I’m out…For the live chat and looks like for the rest of the day. Darn Flu…
Oh, and no, I’m not sick…
Anyone see the any team winning 40 games? Just throwing that out their
This season will be like having the best conditioned horse and starting the race in the homestretch. I’m goin to Hawaii! I’m goin to Hawaii!
Let’s not pull a Barbaro! I’m not going to Hawaii!
Pancakes or waffles?
Who am I? I’m the guy who put the battrooms in this joint!
Carp you’ll be competing with MSG TV’s Rangers training camp special @ 11am – 1pm! Oh well I guess I’ll multi-task. Glad I’m working from home today!
Headzo – i heard they moved it to tomorrow as Torts changed the training schedule for today to be a non-ice day. So Carp should be in-the-clear.
How much more seniority does Carpsy need before Tortsy runs his scheduling ideas past Carpsy first?
Yeah, Headzo, Torts squashed the MSG show when he heard about our Live Chat … knew MSG couldn’t compete with that. So MSG show is now tomorrow. Live Chat right here today. Be there!
Thanks for helping me see the light UK & Carp. Not even uncle Larry could intimidate Torts like Carp & his chat nation!
Carp, can you push the live chat to 1? I have a meeting at 12. Thanks.
what is the presale password?
ilb didn’t you get a flu shot?!
ilb maybe your just “fatigued”
Beantown Rob – Isn’t 12pm here actually only 11am there? Problem solved! You’re golden!
Use code NYRTWEET for presale tickets
The Ticketmaster website has to be the most frustrating user experience on the internets. How is this company so ubiquitous when they suck so much in every way possible?
I can’t believe they sold out of mini and half season plans already
or NYRBOOK for Facebook followers
i got flu shots ilb
flu shots for everyone!
My wife and I both got flu shots and our 15 month old got the 2 part flu shot. She has the flu.
quite shocked at how quickly these teams are selling out. NYR not so much because we’re vibing this year. but other teams?! In the sunbelt? we’re gluttons for punishment
The sunbelt teams are giving a good amount of perks. While the Rangers don’t need to do that to sell tickets, it is odd that we have heard nothing from them regarding any outreach
Why should they? If they’re going to sell out MSG every night at exhorbitant prices.
BLEEP YOU FANS!
Good morning, Carp!
Rangers outreach = we play, you pay
“DaveMaloneyMSG No NYR skate today. Good pace first 3 days. Shootout end of practice yesterday. 31 tries before Hank was beat. Think he’s ready?”
Of course, you could look at the reverse of this and say it took our guys 31 tries to score one shootout goal.
Has Redden been officially waived yet?
Werent they supposed to broadcast practice today? How could they plan that on an off day?
karp lets talk hockey baby, dont print my name in that paper of urs for guns though
Vibz – see Carps comments @ 10:02
Sean O’Donnell retired. If he were a right-handed defenseman I wouldn’t have minded giving him a tryout to be our 6/7 guy. We need someone who can play after the 2nd period.
Subban still not signed – oh must be fun being a Habs fan eh? And to make it worse for them they will get to see the awesomeness of the Mack Truck start another season on the #1 pair for us while they get No Gomez
It took our bum hockey team 31 tries to beat our bum goaltender? It’s going to be a long season
*long short season
Headzo, thanks i commented before reading comments and it figures, yesterday, the first day i havent read the blog in months, he posted that the special got pushed back….unfortunately, today i was off and able to watch, tomorrow i have work, of course lol
UK, If I were a Montreal fan I wouldn’t want him back this year. Sink like stones for Jones! No winnin for MacKinnon!
“Of course, you could look at the reverse of this and say it took our guys 31 tries to score one shootout goal.” Not really, Hank is the best goalie in the league.
Best goalie or not, I’d like our shooters to be able to score at a better clip than that.
Marek Malik would have scored much sooner
Keep in mind A) Lundqvist is competitive as hell; B) a lot of guys were probably trying fancy moves they’d never use in a real shootout; and C) that shooters no doubt included Asham, Rupp, Pyatt, Halpern, Bickel, Eminger, et al.
Pop Corn’s READY Carp ….... start the lunch time chatter!!!!
bring enough for everybody, Sioux.
Carp – What would it take for you to get a shootout attempt on Hank, a la Rich Eisen running the 40 at the NFL scouting Combine?
film session today, torts hard on gabby about defensive zone coverage.
Marek Malik beat Hank in round 31 with a behind the back somersault goal. Bunch of bums
Why should the Rangers take time away from the already shortened training camp to “reach out” to the fans???
The Rangers have the best team in the sport and are favorites to win the cup, they have no problem selling tickets and the Garden will be packed for every single home game. Plus the Rangers wanted to keep the status quo and not miss a single game so the organization really is blameless in all this.
Let the struggling teams find a way to win back fans, while we focus on more important things like winning games and “going through the process”
Carp did you notice all the Ranger games that will not be shown on MSG this year? Every game is NBC, TSN, NHLN – does this mean I won’t be able to listen to Sam call the game?
Is oleosmirf blue like the rest of them little guys?
Malik beat Lundqvist by putting a no-look tape to tape pass on the opposing team’s sniper’s stick.
If I have to listen to the Boston or Pittsburg feed I’m going puke!!!
Does anyone else get this feeling, when you have to listen to the “other side” call the game?
Wholly disagree Olesmirf. Like or not, they were part of a league that royally screwed the fans. The charge high prices for food and merchandise. A little outreach is not going to hurt them. We can’t all be sheep and simly repear slogans like “the right way” and “going through the process.” Besides, a little outreach would be “the right way.”
Sioux, most of those games are not exclusive to the networks, so they will also be on MSG.
They let Olli Jokinen shoot 30 straight times?
I need help boys. 3 things starting at the same time.
7:00 pm Ranger’s 1’st Game, Fighting SIOUX vs Gophers, Garage Poker Tour all starting at 7:00 pm.
Yes I have DVR, but still?
Beem me up Scotty.
Carp where’s the link?
tix sold out huh.
Drop the puck! Saturday’s game is on NHL Network. Look out couch. Here I come.
With Richard out with the flu will we get any kind of idea what the line combos are going to be?
