Interesting how that embarrassing Penguins franchise was able to publicly state that Malkin had a concussion and short term memory loss. Then last week said “health update after the game” and actually delivered saying what was bothering Malkin and how long he will be out.
But again it’s “none of our business.” Right? Anyone else have any questions? Im sure you do, Sam.
Anyone else have any questions? Im sure you do, Sam.
I sure do, Lev.

Ha! I was able to catch most of it. Great Charp!

White smoke – Carp’s officially the new Pope
That Geoffrion news is so sad. Best of luck to him and his family that he can recover.
Didn’t the chat used to have the time listed next to the comments, or am I hallucinating? Also, I think I am one of the few who can hear and enjoys the ticker tape noises with Carp’s replies. I’m sure everyone with a boss has this exquisite feature muted.
Rangers claim Ben Eager, Nick Johnson and Rotislav Olesz off waivers
Rangers waive Ben Eager, Nick Johnson and Rotislav Olesz
Carp, to answer your question, the players that I think have played at or above expectations:
NEW POPE NEW POPE
Manny should be on that.
My bet is Muckler, since he died 20 years before Jesus.
Safe to say it wont be John Tortorella?
I’m gonna go ahead and predict old white Europansy male.
did we send gabby to san jose in a package for boyle and clowe
Is the Pope Catholic?
Uh oh. Reported that Gaby brought his mother into the locker room in Buff last night. You would think she would at least put some clothes on!
Sounds like Ryan Miller might possibly be moved this season. Interesting to think about at least.
Haha. New Pope. Good one guys.
Father Pat, We did it! The smoke is white! The smoke is white!
Anybody see the game PA Parenteau played last night? Suh-weet.
PS – That’s a tongue in cheek thing since PA played his best for 18 minutes and the Avalanche got shutout by the Oilers.
Hubert Humphrey, patronizingly showing off his halting knowledge of Spanish, spoke to a Mexican legislature and while thanking various dignitaries in the audience, also thanked “Papa Grande” for giving all “this wonderful, cloudless day.” What he didn’t understand is that most Spaniards translate ‘Papa Grande’ as ‘The Great Potato.’
The Great Potatoe!!! Was he an Irish Pope???
stevezipay One fan here at Winnipeg Iceplex peering through window has a handmade Gaborik sign. Think it’s a positive one
Viva el Papa!
I’m pretty sure it won’t be William Wallace.
No, Dan Quayle.
Sad indeed, Doodie.
EXCLUSIVE! PHOTO OF NEW POPE!
My guess is he’ll be Catholic.
First Jewish pope?
Abba Bargain Schmul
Megyn Kelly , Fox News, a fine Irish Lass
Wonder how many Catholics (or others) realize that St. Peter, the first Pope, was Jewish?
He could get it for you wholesale.
I don’t think they want to know that ;)
Jesus was Jewish.
Grand Rebbe, on his deathbed, converted, then somehow recovered. Elders and flock asked him how this could have happened, and why he did this. Thinking quickly, he replied, “Better one of them should die than one of us.”
Father Pat knows his history.
FLASH: Rosen apologizes to Tortorella for breathing.
Gaborik volunteers at McBurney YMCA, teaching young swimmers to float.
Asham is back the offensive problems are solved….
We’re saved! He’ll look good along side Stepan and Haley as part of our top line
PAP? Playing well? Heard he’s a lousy skater
Ass-ham for Easter Dinner!
any possibility that the real reason Asham has been out is because he’s been deliberating on the election of the new Pope? He’s back now, of all days? Coincidence? I think not
Sam lowers ‘funeral director’ voice above the barely above an audible whisper. Torts stricken by acute auditory hyper sensitivity syndrome goes postal on Sam and asks him never to talk that loud again!
delete first above…
Asham is The White Smoke….
Sam should just do like Torts said..ask THE PLAYERS.. “Ryan, Coach Tortorella says you guys suck. What do you think?”
suppoisvely torts spoke for 6 minutes post practice today according to hockey night in canada radio
where the sound?
I am henceforth referring to Asham as “The White Smoke”
Sam question to Torts…..”What went wrong tonight, John?”
“What went wrong ? Oh, that’s great Sam. That’s a great question…..Anyone else like to know what went wrong? Well, okay. I’ll tell you what went wrong….. Your freaking schnozzola, Sam. That’s what went wrong.. Anyone else have a question?....... I didn’t think so.”
or the “Off-White Smoke” (a nod to his First Nation roots)
Torts, graduate of the Robert Conrad Eveready Battery School of press relations.
I miss seeing Robert Conrad vs. Lou Ferrigno int he Battle of the Network Stars. Simon Says told Conrad to dare Lou to knock it off his shoulder
smoke at my house is white too….and i aint talking bout no pope
Asham is First Nation? Métis Canadian if you will. That’s pretty cool.
Ich Bin ein berliner
i am a jelly doughnut
Found your vowels, Fat Guy?
Trips e got Asham at the house.
smoke monster from LOST?
papa – i am comfortably numb
i got a whole things i gotta say….. to her….
I gotta whole lotta things to tell her tonight….
Are we there yet?
So close, Wick.
all is good offensively for the Rangers asham is back, another plumber added to this lineup of skill and speed…powe, halpern, asham, boyle, haley, and pyatt.. how can they go wrong that is at least 9 goals between the crew.
I went to Winnipeg a yr ago, flatter than flat, wind blew all trees down. If your dog runs away u can watch him for 2 weeks. Cold place
Dirk Diggler could score
Rangers Report @rangersreport
Corey Perry hit: same as Neil vs. Boyle in playoffs. Perry got 4 games; Neil got off scott free.
Ye, umm, no. Boyle was skating with his head down. His own fault. Zucker made the pass and was admiring it but had absolutely no reason to expect to be hit at that point as it was way late.
Oh ye also how about Tortorella and Lundqvist pulling a Jumbo Softshelled Shrimp Joe Thornton yesterday and giving Buffalo no credit and saying Rangers are a better team and all that jazz. Might be true, but everyone, including myself, had a problem with Thornton saying it last year, it’s only fair…
Good evening all! I’m anxiously awaiting the first newspaper headline that says “Lighten up Francis.”
Missed the Charp….:(
have to love the NHL. all the tough talk about trying to eliminate headshots from the sport to protect the players’ long term safety and they respond to them with a slap on the wrist. amazing how this league is seemingly incapable to resisting the union except when it comes to drafting a new CBA.
whoever said that the Neil hit on Boyle was identical to the Perry hit pretty obviously didn’t watch either hit
i wish it was last year….
neil hit was border line material, perry hit was down right dirty.
Perry hit was way late and he lunged up. Very dirty and 4 games is a joke.
neil is a thug. .the guy has taken out numerous guys during his career…
yes he has some skill and can skate but he is just a a high end thug…kelly out for quite a while and nothing for neil, sure he ran into him by accident. just these accidents happen all the time with neil, konopko, zolnairycek, cooke, torres, and others.. they are just in the wrong place at the wrong time, bad luck…
interesting guys like girardi and others who play physical never have the same problems…must just be a conicedence….
back to the good news all well in rangerland we have the skill of asham back….man tough decision who do you sit; haley, boyle, bickell, halpern, powe, so many tough decisions to make…can the offense recoup if halpern or powe sit out????this is high class problem….
Hey kids!! Everyone off the ledge by now?
what’s the topic dujuor this evening?
Hey Manny! Hey Mama! Hey CCCP!! long time not chat :)
——- natural hat trick
I hear ya C3
Gabby!!!! We’ll see how crowded it gets tomorrow….
carcillo…almost busted that borsalino….
long time not chat
Is the chat live now?
oops! one too many letters there
Guys, help me petition Carp to do chats Thursdays….I can never make Wednesday.
Thursdays are perfect, i’m off on thursdays!
Let’s make this happen
I promise to be a good boy and not feed the trolls :)
not disputing that Neil can be a thug but his hit on Boyle has absolutely nothing in common with Perry’s hit on Zucker
Yes!!! Carp, can you hear us!!!
Good boy Gabby….:)
?”I’m not mad, I’m proud of you. You took your first pinch like a man and you learn two great things in your life. Look at me, never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut.” – Jimmy Conway
You know it Mama! I miss the ol’ gang… just can’t get on during the day…. unless it’s thursdays… then i’ll be a byfuglien chattin’ machine!
Go get your shinebox!
LOL! mama love Gabby….what about game nights!
I know, the best thing abut being unemployed (or, um, at my old employer) was being able to be here lots…..but we heads have to do what we can! Shine on!
C3, you’d think goodfellas would have been coast checkers….
coat checkers, I mean…
well boys, I gotta run…Ta til tomorrow!
have to say this:
Casino is a much better film than Goodfellas
Some game nights i’m around my comp, other times i’m at work for most of the game and get home to watch the 3rd. I’ll stop in when I can! I look forward to tomorrow!
All work and no play makes Gab a dull boy!
Bronx tale trumps them both Lloyd.
Gabby, FB message :)
Lets Go Flyers?
I said it and I watched both, Lloyd. Was a repeat offender taking aim at an opponent’s head and successfully inflicting damage on both. Those things to me are kind of similar.
Who the hell is Marek Zhidlitsky?
Doc has said Zhidlitsky 3 times now.
that’s how it’s pronounced.
Gift o gab
I think Stuart is still on the ledge, he is extremely concerned about our 4th line
Flyers’ D on that Elias goal looked like Rangers’ D last night.
HAHA, yea, no it’s not.
sorry Carp you’re wrong
Devils home game with their home announcers I see. No bias at all.
not the first time, Lloyd. Not the last. :)
Gee, you hate to see that happen to a guy like Rinaldo. He’d never do anything like that.
well well ring the bell
i believe it’s time for another ranger winning streak…..say 10 games….
Nice goal, Universe.
He also did a little extra flip, no?
stuart is not happy with certain players it seems…..
It is funny. When the Devils make a play in the offensive zone, it is to go to the net, not behind the net to grind.
not easy to stp a puck when quantum mechanics is on your mind…...those nano particles are really fuzzy
Does anyone know what’s wrong worth Marty? Food poisoning?
Lloyd n gift wow oh wow are you guys wrong on Bronx Tale which is better than Casino, but nowhere near Goodfellas. Granted the end with the blow was a tad long, but nobody looks better blown out than Adam Oates. Great actor, excellent Movie. Ray Liotta Union NJ
czech – but the other team cannot score when you have the puck behind their net
Hedberg – “am i clown?, do i amuse you?”
What happened to Ronaldo?
ilb – marty is just getting old….happens to everyone
Debbies dough boy coach is 11-8-4 against the flyers and Pierre asks his about his domination of the Flyers….... Excellent question
marty is immune to food poisoning…...
knee-on-knee by Carter, Wick.
So many good scenes, shine box, when the wack Pesci, when he takes the gun from Dr. Melfi and jams it in her face, he beats the preppy neighbor with the gun and Pesci real life mother making them something to eat and so many more. Maybe I’ll watch it tomorrow night
Candidates tournament to determine world champion Vishy Anand’s challenger begins tomorrow in London..Carlsen, Aronian, Kramnik, Radjabov (my favorite), Gelfand, Ivanchuk, Svidler, and Grischuk…..double round robin…follow the action at chessdom dot com…...
Bronx Tale is a good movie.
Goodfellas is possibly the BEST movie.
Casino is nowhere close to Goodfellas. Not even in the same league. All that hysterical Sharon Stone overacting garbage. She may be hotter, but I’ll take Lorraine Bracco as Ray Liotta’s wife any day of the week.
More knees gotta love it
The Godfather trumps them all…......
Tessio was always the smart one
Tom Hagen “Im german irish”
Jack woltz “well, my mic kraut friend….”
Don’t forget State of Grace
Shawshank redemtption and Dead Poet’s society…..also great movies…..
Flyers are making it easy for NJ. Hard to understand, Mezaros and Grossman are back, and still no defense
“two things happened after that: the sisters never bothered andy again…..and Boz never walked again”
“judgement cometh and ye right soon”
Thought we were only talking about Mob movies
fay guy – i missed the memo…my bad
E3 – we’re friends, so you get a pass this time. Don’t let there be second time
Good point. That is our team concept and offensive strategy.
Eddie good choices but u missed the memo, wake up!
We have a system!
On defense, stop the other team from scoring.
On the pk, stop the other team from scoring.
On the PP, stop the other team from scoring.
On offense, stop the other team from scoring.
That’s all folks.
Carp! good to see you again old friend. And no that’s not an age shot :)
Eddie- i’m with you, Godfather is cream of the crop! except for the 3rd one… I didn’t care for it.
Back to Carp… the Festivus episode of Seinfeld was on the other night and it made me thing of the crew here!
Just saw the perry hit for the 1st time. Omg that’s got to be 10 games min. And I like Perry. Wow
On the road again, like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
fat guy – werd
gift o gab – the third one was horrid
czech – werd up
hedberg – my bad
off to preach to the willing….flip side my bruthas
im gonna go get the papers, get the papers.
And dat’s dat.
karen: ‘what do you do?’
henry: ‘I’m in construction.”
karen: ‘your hands don’t feel like they’re in construction.’
henry: ‘I’m a …whaddayacallit… a union delegate.’
we gonna be deep-sixed if Haley’s comet plays in the top six
It must suck to be a flyer fan.. Now more than ever
One player’s changing and Gerves is going in deep. 4-1
Wiseguys – Nicholas Pileggi
Funny? Funny how?
I have said from day one, Flyers aint making the playoffs.
Adam Oates = Henry Hill
By the way, I took care of that thing for ya
So he got shot in the foot, what’s the big deal?
One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy’s sayin’, “Whadda ya want from me?’
Don’t buy wigs that come off at the wrong time.
Are you gonna let him get away with it, ha?

You bought your button, you fake tough guy, you bought your button.
What am I? A schmuck on wheels?
I got a wing!!
“Gervais’s having a tough game” doesn’t describe the situation properly.
5-1 Devils. Could get ugly
Flyers are freaking cheap shot artists
Yup. Getting ugly
Ok wasnt as bad as I thought.
Briere’s hit was much worse I thought
Haven’t fired a coach in Philly in like 2 yrs. That’s 14 yrs in the real world
Talbots gotta be thinking what the hell did I do?
They should just give them 10 minutes plus minors or this will get even uglier. Not that I mind.
Do the Flyers ever change or get better?
Hartnell is a real doosh
Briere is a cheap shot artist to the nth degree! Punk in every way.
Thanks for the Rinaldo info carp
Isn’t Ben eager the guy that played for the Blackhawks that several people here said they wanted at one point?
Wholly crap trade deadline is only a few weeks away
He played for the Flyers too…Not sure how many people wanted him. Wasn’t he a first round pick? Don’t remember which team.
Ilya BryZHgalov… who the hell is that?
Yup, wick, April 3rd. First time in years I’m not away skiing during the trade deadline.
I really hate the flyers
Zhidlitsky? lol Thats not nice, Doc!
Since when is Rob Blake a disciplinarian? Wow…Shanny has henchmen doing his dirty work…
Don’t understand Carp’s tweet: “You can listen to the Chat at noon (or you can replay it later, but not live.” Why won’t you live? Is that some kind of a death threat?
Bob McKenzie is saying it’s anyone’s guess when Staal comes back. Could be 2 weeks….could be 2 months…nobody knows. All we know that there is an eye injury and it needs time to heal…these things aren’t predictable…
Coos take a Valium, he’s not threatening us. . I think he means you can read it, but you can’t contribute to it….kind of similar to watching a DVD.
It’s a death threat, pure and simple. He specifically says you will not live if you replay it later! Hey, it is what it is. We all have to polish up our keyboards, move on, and get ready for Winnipeg.
Is the chat live now?
That’s why ;)
And I don’t Clap at or view VD movies.
I just watched a hilarious movie called “The Gullibles.”
Byfuglien accepts 4 year, $10 million dollar offer from Sea World.
No Coos, he’s a good guy, we are not in danger…...
It’s not live, like I’m breathing so I’m living- live. It’s live, like not happening right now, happened before …........I think.
Byfuglien, guys got elephant feet, size 18 on the skates.
Kin Jong-un say, heat pots, invite Byfuglio man.
“You’re hanging around my freaken neck like a vulture, like impending danger!”
Sup Papa? Jest a bit of humor at Carp’s expanse expense. :)
Byfulglien agrees to terms with Walt Disney Productions, will be new ride at Disneyland, 2014-17.
Banker: “We need more production from our third lien.”
Carp to Coos : You’re a pistol, you’re really funny. You’re really funny.
What it be? Whisper words of wisdom what it be?
It be quiet , sleepy round here. The big Charp wore the heads down. Limited activity on the wire.

Taylor Swift has long slender feet, big toes.
Lucky Dan is going to run second. I said Place. Place the bet on lucky Dan….
Looks like she’s got a bit of Kennedy in her. (the freckles)
If I could run I’d be at Santa Anita.
Taylor swift has funny looking eyes. Not a fan. Thin voice. Not a babe. Silly lyrics. Takes herself way too seriously.
They say Jesus was 6’2”, Steel Blue Eyes. Strong manly feet.
William Blake, stirring to life in the Victorian section of tombstone alley.
She HAD some Kennedy in her, but they broke up
Jesus was hung like a hebrew national.
That reads like Prust’s bio in the Montreal Gazette.
There was a nun in grammar school. She was tall as the day was long. Man hands, hairy chin. Husky voice. Something not right with that picture.
Referring to Papa’s contribution.
This seat taken?
That nun may have been Abe Vigoda hiding out from Elliot Ness.
Pull up a stool, strange.
Awaidting eee’s stool joke.
Bill Blake eatin corn flakes, on the make, what he’d take, in the lake, these ain’t fake, cake I bake …. In the oven, need some loven, oat berry muffin, turkey need stuffin
Always thought Jesus was Irish.
Or Swedish. Something like Hagelin, only taller.
Prust lust, infectious affliction round here.
Sounded today like Torts was throwing Sather under the Greyhound.
Drop a stool
Hagelin seems like a quiet pious lad.
Last season, he lambasted Dolan. Schoenfeld might want to look into buying some new suits next fall if this team doesn’t shape up.
This rounds on me – barkeeper – line em up
Pope Carl the Lesser.
Torts, if pressured, will clarify, will blame the ‘slow start’ on the lockout, not Sather.
Police to Torts: And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper?
However, EVERYONE had the lockout.
What we need, what we need…...
We hang together or we hang separately.
Torts acting more and more like Twiggy. Wearing thin.
What’s the matter people?
Stranger, searching for stool, ‘you using this?’
Torts looking for Queeg’s strawberries in the lockerroom
Fargo – great movie
I no longer need that stool
“I had mutinous officers.”
William Macy – genius
Sly and robbie
Macy went to Goddard, with Mamet. Great buds.
They still need a two way bang em up forward to play LW on first line – if Hags was 6’3” 230 lbs..
Oh wait – we have that guy – Chrissy Cry’der
Little bill in boogie nights
“Has anyone seen my wife”
Kreider, The Mystery Man
saw Glen Gary this winter on the boards – Pacino was barely audible – not worth the coin
now THAT was a great flick – Jack Lemmon was golden
That’s no lady, that’s my wife.
He’s fleeing the interview. He’s fleeing the interview. ....
May I push in that stool?
Pacino, like most superstars of fiction and theater, when fully grown, will accept no direction. Like, for example, ‘speak up, dammit.’
Lemmon/Matthau – great team – loved the fortune cookie
The drum and the bass have fe move me waist,
The riddim and skank have Jah fe thank.
The lyrics and song me have fe keep me strong.
Steel Pulse – Earth Crisis – great disc – turn in up!
Stranger – I read the play long before I saw it on screen and on the boards. It worked best as a read IMO. Brilliant, but actors ham it up too too.
Pacino fully grown is only 5 ft nothing
Where’re them cops of yours, stoolie? You’re gonna need them…
Steel Pulse? They steal that from Chaucer? Or Robbie Burns?
Michael Rose – great singer
Pacino plays Torts!
Mamet’s writing is special – a real genius of the craft – the staccato rhythm of his dialogue is amazing
Jesus rose. Michael didn’t rise.
Pulse was definitely burning a lot of the lamb’s bread
Mamet knows it all, from academia to wall street to 125th street, to the Bowery, to Sutton Place. Can’t be said of many.
They call me Mr. Isaacs…
Knick fans & Boneheads, alternating dibs on the ledge.
all that NY knowledge from a Chicago guy
Went to a Knick game last year and it was one of the most miserable evenings of my life with the noise, the Rap, the …whatever..
all the usual suspects….
nighty nigh, kids….
One of my fav flicks is ‘Things Change’ with Don Ameche and Joe Montegna – classic Mamet script beautifully acted
Stranger – he sold real estate at one time…thus Glengarry.
haven’t been to MSG for a knickerbocker game in 8 yrs – may be going to Big East tomorrow though
Ameche was great in cocoon
Saw ‘Oleanna’ down on a small theatre on 2nd ave in the East village – powerful stuff
he is not afraid to take on the system
Mamet chooses Montagna whenever he can, also Macy, and his wife (Mamet’s) They do it his way.
Oleanna could have starred eee.
If you haven’t see ‘Homicide’ check it out – another under rated Mamet written film with Montegna and Macy
college basketball preferred
I thought I read and saw every Mamet. Have to look up Homicide. Unless I’m forgetting.
Well gents – hello I must be going…early start manana
Did anyone else hear stewie howling at the moon?

High anxiety in Rangerland, boneheads toss and turn through the night, wake-up, check blog, see the line-up and quietly retreat back to bed, for more restless tossing and Nashing of teeth.

Tell that to the ledgeheads.
Don’t know what game Henrik was watching. I remember a reporter asking Nicklaus what it felt to three put on 18 and he said he NEVER three putted on 18. The reporter said he had film. Jack said, I don’t care what you have, I never three putted on 18 in my entire career. (Power of positive thinking)

Um, I watched an episode of “Pawn Stars” last night, a guy walks in with a signed hockey sticks and they talk about this signature and nobody knows what’s going on, really. So they decide to call in an expert to determine the value of this damn lumber – commercial – I dozed off, when I came back, another commercial about Coors, the next guy in there was trying to pawn a confederate belt buckle, wow ?!?!?!?
Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home
a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent
blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
