58

The coach was pretty good again tonight, went for a while, volunteered some internal statistical stuff. Almost expected him to wish the assembled press a Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. John Muckler: 1934 – 2058

    He was alive from just after half past seven until just before nine o’clock on his first day with the Rangers.

    is the yellow river in china?…..cause i swear i am looking at it right now

  3. Muckler’s bio includes teams such as the Detroit Hettche, Chatham Maroons and Wichita Wind.

    The only places those teams have ever existed are in the 1800s and Doc Emrick’s vocabulary.

  4. swear to God, a Rangers’ staffer — and not like an intern, but somebody pretty important to the team — told me Muck made him drive to Buffalo and back one time because Muck left his meds on his dresser.

    i just a notice to slow dow, i am posting too fast…that’s my wife’s biggest complaint too…how odd

  6. Sounds, from what Carp says, he was the captain of the ‘Bounty.’ Shiva me timbers! (that’s a Jewish nautical epithet, if I spelled it correctly)

  7. I think someone said on Asham’s tweets that he looked like he combed his hair with a bent beer can, and Asham asked him which tooth he would like knocked out first.

    from his wiki page John Mucker 1582-1665 Brilliant hockey mind. Developed the insane notion of turning a Norris trophy winner into a winger to shut down an opposing forward that would have all been unnecessary had the defenseman been left as a defenseman….

  9. I remember reading somewhere years ago that Donahue and that girl knocked down a house in Connecticut and put up a McMansion blocking all their neighbors’ views of the lake. Law suits. Not a very nice thing to do when you’re moving into the neighborhood.

  10. Richie Ritch, coming home after game, to wife – ‘Did you see my jam tonight?’
    She says, “it is the cabinet where you left it next to the peanut butter.”

  11. e3, it should also read: did it on a game day without the benefit of a practice to implement such a complicated system, and for a road game when it would be easy for the home coach to dictate the matchups, and succeeded in getting his team shut out by breaking up his only scoring line and using his only offensive defenseman as a checking winger … oh, and the guy it was designed to stop also scored the game-winning goal.

  12. rich girl. I can’t give you the rest of the Hall and Oates here, or Carp will pull out his blackjack.

    Carp – yeah, but come on…he’d beed dead for almost 30 years when that happened…

  14. One day I will get a moment alone with Torts and ask him about that game … I am pretty sure it happened the year Torts was his assistant (and then interim head coach when Muck was mercifully shot).

    ah, you are just nit picking now…

  16. Carp, your intolerance of Muckler ranks up there with some of the fans feelings about Boyle or Drury or holik

  17. Muckler to his assistant outside MSG locker room: “Hand me my Mont Blanc. It’s on the dining room table at my house in Albany.”

  18. eddie eddie eddie on

    Hedberg – you show me another dead coach that coached while dead and did it better than muckler….

  19. As I Rembrandt the story, David left the gallery and jumped into his vehicle which wouldn’t start and he was hollering ‘why doesn’t this Van Gogh?’

  20. Rangers mind set. Take there aggression on the islanders for giving up a 3 goal lead last game. The rangers do that, they will win.
