  1. Great video – these guys skate better than I walk…and forget about me climbing stairs.

  2. You guys have to think that the layoff favors the Rangers. The Capitals were on fire and they now have to just sit around and wait for 5 days? That’s good news for us. Plus it gives the Rangers time to heal (x4).

  3. Rangers are in trouble, eric states he will be positive. When eric is positive the rangers lose. When eric is negative, the rangers win :-).

  4. Is there a contest to see how many non news blogs can be posted in the shortest time?

    Should we have scorecards?

  5. Cmnsense- were you invited to Michael Jordan’s wedding? He just had in Jupiter, I hear. You could give us some real news then. Bet you his wedding was mediocre.

  6. okay, i cannot see the video
    i couldn’t get the audio in the
    last post
    to work.
    is it just me in my internet hell day
    or is anyone else having similar problems?
    (already want to toss my laptop out the window
    due to being told i’m connected to internet yet
    each time i try to upload a site i’m told i’m not
    connected to a server)

    Rangers 18-1, lots better than 9-1 at the biginning of the year.

    Only $555 to win $10,000. Any takers????

  8. Manny, I always root for the Pansies in those things. I would rather watch the McDowells, Poulters, Garcias, etc., than the boring clowns, chokers and Tiger (who, in addition to being a cretin, always sucks in team play) on the U.S. team.

    I covered DLIII’s under-the-rainbow PGA championship at the Foot.

    Wick, I don’t get it. Do I look like that guy?

  9. Sioux-per-man on

    I think everyone has Chicago vs Pittsburg in the finals. I wonder what the odds of that happening vs not happening?

  10. I don’t know why but I feel one of Blackhawks\Pens will get pick off and not make it to the cup, just a hunch.

  11. Sioux-per-man on

    It’s tough to win when you’re the favorite. Not sure who beats either team right now.

    No easy trip to the finals this year.

  12. Totally understand, Carp. I love the Europeans too. Every year USA says they are going to bed early and taking it seriously and every year they lose to a bunch of Europeans who are just having a blast.

  13. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Re the avatar. Lucas created Star Wars, just as you are the creator for the blog (you know, since a few of us are Star Wars avatars currently)

    Btw, audio and video brilliant on the iWicky device!!!

  14. Still wish we were playing the Bruins. Series with the Leaves should go 7. Caps are on a run but its the play-offs and so are we. Very interesting match-ups in our division. Should be some great hockey.

  15. HA!!! HA!!!! I love it, now I know the blackhawks and pens won’t meet in the stanely cup finals. I just heard Barry Melrose on espn predict the cup finals will be blackhawks and pens. This dude is never, never right.

  16. And you’re right, ORR. He’s so much different. So aggressive in the zone. Determined and decisive.

  17. Sioux-per-man on

    Well the Blackhawks are a +56 in goals, didn’t lose a game in the first 25 games, and are deep scoring team. How do you not pick them out of the west?????

    Pittsburgh didn’t lose a game in a month, are a +46 in goals, got every free agent they wanted, and Fluery has a backstop that can stop the bleeding. They are clearly the favorite of the whole league.

    So Barry didn’t walk to far off the plank to pick those teams.

  18. Sioux-per-man on

    My question is this what team upsets Pittsburgh? I say the Rangers gave them fits durning the year, and have the goalie and defense to make it difficult for them. Yes it’s a huge upset, but it could happen.

    Now out of the West who could stop the Hawks? As a dark horse I would pick the Blue’s if they can get past the Kings. Blues probably have the best Defense in the league, and if Elliot can stop the puck like he did in the beginning of the year, they will be tough to score on. Alot of 1 goal games for this team. They will have a healthy Oshie comming back, and they added Leopold and Bouwmeester on the Blue line. Can’t believe they let Redden go :)

  19. I get the video when I use Internet Explorer but not with Mozilla Firefox. Might be that I run old version of Firefox …not as many hassles but stuff like this problem does show up now and then.

  20. Watching this game just reminds me how badly this team needs Hank to essentially steal periods and thus, games.

  21. Sioux-per-man on

    If I had to pick today, I would pick the Hawks to win.

    Hard to not pick the Penguins to play them in the Finals. But I’m going to wait to see if the Rangers can get a series with them.

  22. wow, kreider looks like a totally different player in game 7 against the sens than he has this year, weird.

  23. I’m so pathetic. This win, from last year, cut down to 60 minutes (with commercials) just gave me chills.

  24. If Delzaster doesn’t pick up his play in the playoffs, I going to be really angry with him.

  25. Most experts were picking us to win it all before the season started. Now, most will pick us to lose in Rnd 1. Really, What do they know?

  26. I would rather be the underdog. At this point in the season everyone is trying to Sandbag each other.

  27. Czechthemout!!! on

    That is before Kreider was “coached up ” by Gernander and later, Torts. Leave him the fugg alone and let him play! This kid comes to play when things matter most, in big games. Let him play!

  28. Paul in sunrise on

    Video awesome on the iphone. Still cannot get the interview audio from prior posts. So I prefer the video.

    Carp can you video the player interviews? That would be byfuglien awesome.

    Rangers in 5. Rolling.

    Did I forget anyone?????

  30. Bill Daly is a clown. Just admit you’re a fan! Not like anyone’s going to question your integrity for being a fan of a hockey team. It’s the NHL – we question your integrity for a lot of other reasons.

  31. Sioux-per-man on

    It’s an NHL site, or facebook.

    A friend of mine tagged me. So I filled it out and added a public league and named it Boneheads.

    Winner wins a Cigar out of my Humidor! If I win I get a cigar from everyone Sound fair don’t ya think :)

  32. I picked the Rangers because I couldn’t bring myself to pick against them. Don’t hate me.

  33. Sioux-per-man on

    Manny – your in charge. To get all the boneheads in!!!

    I bet we could easily get 40 to 50 of us.

  34. Sioux-per-man on

    Off and running!!!


    Spread the word Thunderbird!!!

  35. I think the Kings can take the west again. Not picking them yet, but thinking about it.

  36. @Mike_Rappaport: #NHL Draft Order: 1. COL 2. FLA 3. TB 4. NSH 5. CAR 6. CGY 7. EDM 8. BUF 9. NJ 10. DAL 11. PHI 12. PHX 13. WPG 14. CBJ

  37. Sioux-per-man on

    Manny – I did. Your first name is Zachary, or did you send me someone else link :)

  38. Sioux-per-man on

    Hit the box down below on Facebook. That’s me with the wife with 2 Gaborik Jersey’s.

  39. Sioux-per-man on

    6 and climbing off like a rocket. We only have a day to get everyone in. Or until the puck drops on the first game.

  40. Paul in sunrise on

    I am in on the Romeo.

    If the rangers win its likely to go to a tie breaker.

    That was obviously Dorset on the pk in the video in the yellow. I broke my collar bone playing Rec league hockey. Was boarded on a race to the end boards. Puck dumped in just on my side of red line so no icing. Anyway. It’s a full 8 weeks. And mine was still clicking for weeks after that. When is the 8 week mark for Dorset?

  41. ilb2001, When you’re 50 and marrying a hot 35 nothing is mediocre unless it’s the moronic comments from lesser creatures on this blog.

    Now be a nice fellow or I’ll play verbal smack with you and Carp will tell me to behave because his children might get their panties in a bunch.

  42. Sioux-per-man on

    Paul – It’s in the box. I also have a Museum Edition as well. IF you want the fancy tube and a copy of the painting by Fazio.

  43. BTW, imagine watching the Rangers practice the power play.

    We watched it all year ad it sucked, what’s new?

  44. Sioux, Carp has advised that I will have to earn his approval before any niceties come my way.

    Thanks for the invite but you dare not incur the wrath of the blogmeister!

  45. Sioux-per-man on

    Watch my friend is the Morning Show on the radio, if he shares the league name on the radio or facebook the league could blow up in a hurry :)

    Can never have to manny Boneheads ….. right?

  46. Sioux-per-man on

    I wouldn’t want anyone to get in trouble for anything. Just make your picks and get your horse in the Race :)

  47. Can someone translate for me what Prust’s girlfriend says about the upcoming playoffs in her tweet? —-> Or is it the NHL Draft Lottery she is talking about? :-)

  48. SIOUX i just joined if you are ok with that. I had my wife pick. She picked Chicago over Pitt, with Pitt beating NYR in ECF…..divorce if that happens.

  49. ilb
    where’s the tweet?
    you should be able to just google
    translate from french to english
    and get a site that will do that for you.

  50. Not sure if anybody saw this, but Pat Leonard had some great quotes from Richards on him playing with Zucc and who Zucc reminds him of:

    “Zook and I have done some good things here of late,” Richards said after the Rangers’ 4-0 win over the Devils at the Garden in their regular season finale. “I love playing with him, with his hockey sense and the little plays he makes. He reminds me a little of Marty St. Louis when I was in Tampa, with how he can get in and under people and make those little quick plays that open up ice for you. He’s brought a lot to us.”

    Pretty cool comparison and strong words from Richie. I am very excited to see Zucc play in the playoffs. Can’t wait for Thursday!

  51. Most of the “experts” are picking Washington.

    Rick Nash wasn’t even mentioned in the NHL.com review of the series.

    I doubt it will go seven. Rangers in six.

    I love this time of year, its like Christmas eve as a child.

  52. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Latona – re: EJ – he just starts talking sometime and you know he has no idea where he is going with whatever he is saying…

  53. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    EA hockey simulations has rangers in 7 over craps, in 7 over the pens, sweeping the Habs, and beating the hawks in 6 to win the cup

    Rangers vs Hawks in the finals.

  54. SufferingSince79 on

    E3, the EA simulation showed Clowe scoring a goal. Looks like he’s not hurt a bad as we were led to believe.

  55. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Suffering – I sure hope The Clowe is ready to go, ready to throw, and ready to crush the craps.

  56. Seriously, it seems he’s had his x-ray/evaluation and he is still a ways off. He was Monday quoted as saying he hopes to play sometime in the first round.

  57. Good morning, boneheads!

    Great work indeed, Carp! Thank you, and many thanks to your two-bit, pedestrian IT clowns :-) I think they finally graduated from bush-league :-)

    And so it begins. The playoffs. Great time of the year. So who are we rooting for tonight?
