My pick to the final is the same pick I had last yr…..Boston this time with a win over Chicago. Sort of like a couple yrs ago with the pens/wings. Rangers 10 th sadly.
Not sure about the “great writer” part, but thank you and welcome, RJ!
Ria, agree about the night crew.
I got carped on the other thread, so in case anybody is looking for a ladies Brandon Dubinsky or a Sean Avery winter classic sweater:
Is there really a ladies’ size MZA?
I like that those Sweaters are entirely people that are on other teams now, retired players and BRAD RICHARDS.
Happy that Vigneault thinks that Del Zaster has a lot of offensive upside. I agree Mr. Vigneault.
Sounds like it’s going to be a progression with the players learning Vigneault and vice versa. Great. I love buildup.
I like that “Nash” doesn’t like getting hit so he gets a non-contact. Nice joke, Vigneault!
He didn’t say, “The Right Way” once! Fire him.
Not a fan of the word pr O gress
If your true love is 5’5, 285, can you get her an MZA length, Brodeur width intersex sweater?
Did Vinegar say “I don’t ask,” when discussing Richie’s opinion on moving to wing, or did I imagine that?
Manny, it’s all overstock. The stuff nobody wants to buy :)
Pretty sure I thought I heard something like that. “I don’t ask.” Or maybe, “I didn’t ask.” Something like that. Sounds like Richie is really garnering that respect Veteran’s are so deserving of.
Pr O gress is part of the Pr O cess.
I do like the game planning for the opposition, it just makes sense. I also like his explanations, you don’t get a lot of “next question” or “we don’t discuss that”
Must be a pleasure, or at least a nice change for Carp and others.
you know…that candy sucking business by our new coach is getting a little bit annoying now.
Brush your teeth, Frenchie!
Thought so, Manny. Sounds very much like Richie’s not that interested in playing the walls. But, nothing new there.
So what happens to Dion Phaneuf if Kessel gets this humaingous big deal?
You sure those are not Tums, 3C?
It needs work…the power play.
I think I like the idea of the coach making up pairs, instead of lines, then rotating in and out the spare parts. Horse face, the spare part…
There are no two really good players I’d want to build a team on less than Kessel and Phaneuf.
Totally agree, The Doctor. I wouldn’t want those as my cornerstone guys.
could be tums… he’ll need a lot of those once he sees Richie on PP
yeah you build your team around guys like MDZ and Bryan Boyle. Totally…
This ‘Fresh Post’ sure seems like a ‘Clean Slate’ to me.
Drop the puck already. Geez. Been a long wait.
Since people, CCCP, are bringing up Bole right off the bat…let’s all go around and say which two players, One Off. and One Defensive, we would want to build our team around.
Manny, I’m thinking you could announce that you are cleaning the slate and we would know that it’s a new post. Prust saying.
My two building blocks:
Forward: Patrice Bergeron
Defense: Erik Karlsson
You got it, Matty!
Vigneault will be on the WFAN in a few minutes. FYI.
The only reason these bums won’t be bottom feeding in the NHL is because the rest of the division is so overhyped and bad. Pennsylvania is without goaltending, Caps can’t beat up on Southleast, Carolina WAS the southleast, the Islanders suck, the Devils suck, and Columbus is Columbus.
They are a bunch of no-talent, hack, bottom-feeding CLOWNS.
Toews and Karlsson.
No. Check that.
Tavares and Karlsson.
Good One, Doodie. I was between Toews and Bergeron. Bergeron won because of his toughness and jam. Tavares is unreal though. Good call.
Malkin and PK Slewfoot
To build a team o’round, you have to start with Brodeur and Byfuglien.
Coach is dropping a lot of “work in prOgress” and “play the right way” on WFAN.
Let me summarize AV’s commments: “These clowns are a bunch of no-talents.”
I am going to place a bet on Bovada taking the over on Loui Eriksson’s points 62.5.
Does anyone else see this as a solid gamble?
I would take the over for Eriksson at 62.5. He is a very, very solid 70 point player. I don’t know what a Bovada is though.
I’ll take Stamkos and Pietrangelo.
Veen-Yo on the WFAN:
“there are 10-15 teams in the league that can compete for the Stanley Cup this year and we’re certainly one of them”
LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!
the clowns are obviously not included in those 10-15.
Just won $1880 on a $250 parlay bet of Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and Arsenal victories.
Kate Upton and Stepan’s mom.
I don’t understand Sioux’s ESPN game. Apparently half my team is injured.
Here’s something to ponder. Thinking long view, what if you had to start with an F and D who are current teammates? Our boys Step and McD would have to atleast be in the running.
Some great picks coming in here….
Leetch and Messier, but that’s just me.
That’s a good one, The Doctor!
I wouldn’t hate using Bobby Ryan and Erik Karlsson….
Parise and Suter?
Crosby and LeTang?
That’s exactly what the Minn Wild were thinking, Rob!
Backes and Pietrangelo?
Max Patch and Subban?
I think Tavares (gag) and Letang could work.
Avery and Caber
RJ = Real Juice
People called Romanes, they go, the house?
“There’s just one way to play, the right way.” Duh
One game at a time.
AV on WFAN “It will take a little time and patience for my genius to envelop the ice.” Translation: ‘I haven’t seens tape or met most of these guys yet.’ Not getting on the coach, just a bit puzzled so far. Just coachspeak, I guess.
“I haven’t seen that little center around lately, the blondie guy.”
“You sent him down, coach.”
“I don’t ask, I tell.” Sounds like someone who just won a cantankerous fight. Hmmm.
Or someone in charge of making decisions that might not always be popular with the people he manages.
Or the person he manages
Good point. Its fun to picture Boyle and MDZ quietly snickering and high-fiving behind Richards when the announcement was made.
Hmmm, didn’t hear the WFAN interview.
” I don’t ask, I tell”
Was that about moving #19 to wing?
Yes, See but it was from Carp’s presser above, not WFAN. I believe he said, “I don’t ask” (in reference to the Richie move.) I filled in the blanks
Easy does it now.
I heard part of the WFAN interview, spin, spin and triple spin.
He said he has no concerns or worries. This is a new season!
‘The problem now of course is
To simply hold your horses,
To rush would be a crime
‘Cause nice and easy does it every time.’
He’ll see how they (the team) do in Phoenix and then take it from there.
Francesa is toolish.
The Yankees are going to offer Girardi a contract? I had no idea he played baseball too.
Veen-Yo seems to be a confident guy.
Good for him.
I’m looking at a 3 team moneyline parlay for tonight’s hockey games.
Can a few people give me their opinions.
Site is below:
Oh, thanks, my confusion.
I think the job calls for that Papa and maybe a smidgen of cockiness. Not that I’m capable but I sure wouldn’t want his job.
I’d rather mock his inability to do it well from my couch. Oh and I will.
Is it the real turtle soup, or only the mock?
CDUBB, I agree and have no problem with him being confident.
But, the true test for him will be how he reacts if the team fails to meet expectations, especially if disaster occurs right out of the gate.
It will certainly hold his feet to the fire.
Can’t wait till Thursday !
We win 3 – 1
The Flight of the Phoenix.
It’s 7:11. Has the NHL season begun??
Quite the drama in Montreal. Just drop the puck.
Papa, I couldn’t decide if AV’s a slick talking guy that may have snowed everyone under or he really is a good coach and is just confident. I guess we will see.
He certainly is a good talker. The contrast to Torts is monumental.
We continue in first place for the next few hours. Way to be Rangers!!!!!
They do love their hockey in Montreal!
There’s a group that lives a life of Rangers
To everyone they meet, they still stay strangers
With every move they make,
With every chance they take,
Odds are they won’t live to see tomorrow.
I was hoping we were going to go undefeated this season, but now I’m not so sure!
‘I’m a Rangerous man from a dangerous city
and I lead a dangerous life
I’ve got a Rangerous car. it goes dangerous speeds and a very Rangerous wife;
I got 16 Rangerous girlfriends, not counting one or two
So, look out kid you don’t want to get hit
I’m too dangerous for you.’
A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a horse of course
That is, of course unles the horse
is the famous Ritchie Rocket
Go right to the source and ask the horse
He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse.
He’s always on a steady course.
Talk to Ritchie Rocket
Secret Ranger Man…...VEEN-YO?
“So Rick, how do you think the preseason went?”
I predict an offensive onslaught Thursday. Rangers win 1-0.
in the shootout..MZA
Stamkos CANNOT carry a team…MalKING can :D
You’re a rich dude, and you’ve gone too far
‘Cause you know it don’t matter anyway
You can rely on the Dolans’ money
You can rely on the Dolans’ money
It’s a bitch, dude, and it’s gone too far
George Parros’s mustache is bigger than MZA.
You cannot refer to dogs of a certain gender on this blog!
And you cannot touch certain parts of your body while you are out there on the Garden Ice.
The talking penis proclaims Hawks as a dynasty for a long time!
get help, RJ.
LET”S GO BLACK HAWKS!!!!!!!!
RAISE THE BANNER!!!!!!!!
FIRE SATHER!!!!!!!! The Useless Folk.
Mcdonough when to shut up.
Where’s the Cup?
is anyone watching the blackhawks banner raising? can you imagine if we ever won the cup and dolan and sather spoke at the garden? what do you think would happen? they’d probably just let sam run the show and never show up right?
I wonder if EddieO knows he is getting a little thin on top.
rozi… stanley cup winner
Jeez, what a quiet crowd. They should be screaming…
Puke fest, hope the hawks get shellacked
Black Hawks – 5 Cups
Rangers – 4 Cups
fresh post, manny.
