  1. so this bridge is basically another level of seating. tt was nice of them to put TVs on the back of it, too – nothing like having to watch on TV even though you’ve paid to be at the game.

  2. If you drop a Junior Mint from the bridge and AV, while chewing his gum on the bench, looks up towards the scoreboard, is it possible …….

  3. gotta say I’m not seeing anything from those photos that makes the bridge look in any way like it was described…apart from the fact that it’s a massive obstruction of dubious value.

  4. added 430 seats and probably ruined several hundred other seats in the process. absolutely sounds like something involving James Dolan.

  5. Where, exactly, do you land when you jump from bridge? Are you assured of effective suicide, or is there a chance you just end up in traction for six months?

  6. so what happened to the part where this nonsense would be over the ice and not just plopped in front of the upper portion of the 200s?

  7. If you’re going out, you might as well take an $18.50 Roast Beef sandwich and a Goldman Sachs Hedge Fund Consultant with you.

  8. I’d save the sandwich (take the cannoli) but it would be worth it to take out one of those suits … hope they get it on video, too, guy texting during the game and some slob in an Avery jersey lands on him from 75 feet up.

  9. Tears in my eyes. Juxtaposition of texting broker and “some slob in an Avery Jersey. Gotta get the tissues, get the tissues.

  10. Got back to the states last night. Think I’ll go back to Aruba where it’s more difficult to hear Rangers news.

    Garden looks greats, not divorced yet, Guess Nash got concussed already and they’re going to start waiving people to try to make a move? And they suck so far..did I miss anything?

    ps- if you’ve never been to Aruba, GO. with or without your wives/husbands. doesn’t matter. you’ll have a blast either way.

  11. Nash will be out for at least 3 weeks. If he is still having symptoms, then until those resolve he cant do anything. Then he can start a graded return to activity with non-contact over the next 1-2 weeks after that, and then return to full contact. It generally should be at least 2 weeks from symptoms being gone, plus he should have to perform at or close to his baseline on the IMPACT testing which looks at a bunch od stuff like verbal and visual memory and reaction time that you won’t necessarily notice in everyday life. However it would mean his brain isnt healed yet plus make him not quite as good on the ice idf he came back before that point.

    And before everyone starts complaining, the worst thing he can do is get back out there before its healed and get hit again. That is exactly what happened to Crosby 3 years ago and he ended up shelved for a whole year. worth it to keep Nash out an extra week or two to ensure we have him as much as possible going forward.

    And the NHL has to get rid of these headshots. Its killing the game plain and simple. I know its very “old school” but the old schoolers were much slower and much smaller and didnt skate around looking for guys heads. True old time hockey is actually clean hockey.

  12. James – Agreed but to go even further – hit Turks and Caicos, leave the kids at home and take your wife or girlfriend.

  13. Those bridges are interesting in theory but I agree that, in practice, they are bush-leaguey.

  14. Bonehead nation may all be looking for warm winter getaways starting in January. Perhaps we can get hook a group rate with a local TA.

  15. Hey! The Suicide Bridge! Cool

    Mrs. Manny just made the point that how often you’re injured should probably be a stat in hockey.

  16. Or did they think these two were the best for the roster and now two weeks later, not so much?

  17. Ricky Jejeune: in regards to your snarky reply to
    Carmine: you wouldn’t have a blog, even one poisoned by the Doctor Denton Thousand Tried for One Sorta Funny Gang, if most of us didn’t know, and were occasionally right in knowing, that we have better eyes than the coaches. Even the blog head indulges from time to time, no?

    Peter: and that’s why there has to be an original heavy
    sanction (a month, two?) for the kind of gutless work
    provided by too many coaches and players, clear attempts to concuss and possibly end careers. After that’s served, the yellow-belly (and his coach, possibly his GM)
    gets an additional two or three days for every one day the victim was lost to his side.

    And the iWackies of the world will have to get police radios, and speed to fatal traffic accidents to get the necessary jollies no longer available in the world of high-speed, world-class hockey.

  18. “It’s a performance-based business” AV

    Really??? LOL…then AV should be scrubbing toilets instead of coaching the Rangers…

  19. Man…imagine NYR had a legit PP quarterback (Edler) or a d-man that makes the opposition think twice before a play (Bieksa) or legit top ten player or two (Sedin twins)…AND THEN, we brought Torts in…

    That would have been cool….

  20. LOL Torts has all of it in V…let’s see how the greatest coach in history of greatness does with more talented team

  21. Thanks again, CCCP. By the way, when do you think Avery is going to come back and play in the NHL again? Last time I checked, he is retired from hockey. I don’t think he’s a quitter. Is Avery a quitter and a sore loser, CCCP?

  22. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    At this pace, the zucchini will finish the season with no goals and no assists with a +/- of -33

    You want something scary? Imagine Johnson bursting down on you while you are in net!!

  25. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Kooz – I don’t research my johnson jokes. They are all right here….in my head

  26. Yes upper level of 200s obstructed view. Can’t see the jumbotron at center ice. Hence the televisions. Also may not see across to other side of arena sections.

    Everything about this season is a del zaster.

  27. That was a joke, E3. Well we all know your rapier off- the- cuff wit. Rapier? That sounds illegal.

  28. I’m actually doing my 2102 taxes, due tomorrow with the extension, then checking back and forth in here to find a gdamned smile somewhere. Carp and Papa and a couple others helped me through a few columns, but hard to do math with tears in your eyes.

  29. It looks a good portion of people will not be able to see the center ice scoreboard. Perhaps that’s what the TV screens are for.

  30. 2102 taxes? I still owe those too, along with a few other years.

    The shutdown didn’t affect that.

  31. doo Blay on tond ray. Got the original for sure. The doo Blay took me a puzzled moment, but, oh yeah.

  32. tomb. no problemo. Mayor Dinkins didn’t file for 5 or 6 years and I don’t think anyone noticed, (even after they noticed.)

  33. You guys realize that The Kreider cannot be a replacement or substitution for Nash if he’s going to still be an AHL level Forward.

    I was sitting home alone one night in LA watching cronkite on the 7 oclock news.

    It seems there been an earthquake that left nothing but a panama hat and a pair of old Greek shoes.

    Kooz – LBJ, as he took a dump, would force junior reporters to stand there, 3 feet away, listening to him ramble on as the deuces were dropping….

    by=my … So are the roster changes Sather driven or is the frog pulling the strings? I am hoping that Sather gives Chef Mon Beauf a quarterly chance, and, if with continued malfeasance assuring an early visit to Le Guillotine in Sather’s Louis XIV inspired office setting.

  41.

    Waiving Biron and Asham is like the Captain of the Titanic (Sather) sending two crewman to the bottom of the ship to look for passengers, while he puts on a dress, adjusts his wig and gets in line to board the last lifeboat.

  46. Since Ash is not in our future, we have to pay him, and he has little to gain or learn in Hartford other to take some kid’s spot, why not assign him to boxing lessons? By the way, it was you, Charlie. I coulda taken that bum apart.

  47. Olga Folkyerself on

    Put Asham in Sather’s office, in charge of inserting suppositories.
    He’ll quit the game.

  48. Ever notice that Richie “forechecks” by standing flatfooted in front of the net until after everyone’s gone, then he follows the opposing defenseman up the ice from 10 yards behind?

  49. Man as much as I love watching hockey and can’t bring myself to abandon the Rangers since 1997 there have been a lot of ranger seasons where I felt as if I were pushing a boulder up a hill for eternity.

  50. Strang is telling the world that JT and Cam cometh. I hope Kreider, Kristo and Lindberg get a lot of playing time and come up ready to go by December. These guys could use more life, speed and did I say life?

  51. Olga Folkyerself on

    Much as I like the Rangers, I can hardly stand to watch them anymore. It’s been like taking punches in the gut for the last 14 years from that smirking Esso Bee Sather.

I “taught in one college (a Christian Brothers joint) where a long tenured associate handed out A’s to everyone each semester so long as they showed up for all classes and heard him out. He was called in and severely chided. Next semester, he failed a half-dozen Christian Brother students. He was called in again, and they apologized and he agreed to review the Brothers’ grades. Classic.

My second wish was to have all the money I would ever need. Finally, my third wish was to have sex with the mermaid.”

    “That doesn’t sound too bad,” says the bartender. “Then what happened?”

    “Well,” sighs the man, “mermaids can’t have sex, so I asked her if I could just have a little head instead… .”

The waiter, a little shocked about what he just heard, went back to get their water. He returns and asks the man if he is ready to order. The man says “I’ll have a steak with all the fixin’s. Bring the same for the jack azz too.” The waiter, still puzzled, returned to the kitchen to give the order to the cook. The man gets up from the table and heads to the bathroom. The waiter scurries over to the lady and says, “Ma’am, I’m not trying to be rude, but why do you let him call you “jack azz” like that??” The lady looks at him and says, “Ooohh-EEEE always says that!”

    thanks for talking.

    I enjoy this more than a lot of things.

  105. well…

    thanks Eddie.

    of course we are better than our current record.

    couple of wins, a couple of tweaks, we will be OK.

  106. Still a bit puzzled by the move to call up Miller given he’s more of a 2nd/3rd line 2-way player rather than a scorer like Kristo or Kreider. I would have though that with Nash out we would be better giving one of those 2 a run in the team with the hope that they can find their scoring touch at this level.
    Miller has clearly been the standout player at Hartford, but does he fill the need on the big club right now?

  107. the big club has so many needs..

    Woolworth would be challenged.

    I agree Kreider and kristo for scoring, but they will be here soon.

  109. Stranger Nation on

    UK – should have brought up The Kreider and Miller, but my guess is they are going to see how the scrubs, I mean, Pullout and Zucchini do against the Leastern Conf foes before throwing them on the trash pile.

    Miller can hit, scrape and play some D. Their forward floaters need some lead weights to balance these lines. Esp someone over 200 lbs who can skate.

  110. The only “reason” here are from those who recognize that, on any other team, The Kreider is a 1st-line player capable of MVP-type numbers.

    It’s the bottom line.

    It’s the bottom line.

  112. We could just trade Hank and call up Talbot and Jason Missiaen and save a ton of money. Then we can afford to keep Brad Richards!

  113. Rob in Beantown on

    Seriously though, who are the Rangers dressing as a backup tomorrow? Talbot? Did they announce anything?

  114. I assume we will see some people on ice at practice like JT Miller, Christ, The Kreider and maybe Haley.

  115. Miller Time.

    Who else? Why put Nash on IR, if they are not going to pull 2 forwards up?

  116. I don’t think they can make any other recalls until Asham and Biron clear the waivers at noon. Doesn’t mean they will, but with Nash on IR, and Hagelin on LTIR, they are still at 23 man roster.

  117. with nash on IR retroactive to injury the rangers have the option of bringing up another forward now. with nash on IR and asham waived and only miller recalled it looks like then we have no spare forwards with the big club. just brilliant.

    “IT’S GETTING LATE EARLY AROUND HERE”

  118. We have obviously traded Marc Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes for Justin Faulk and Kevin Westgarth. Don’t worry guys!

  119. Rob in Beantown on

    I’m pissed that Nasty beat me last week. We were within like 1 point of each other the whole two weeks but it just wasn’t enough.

  120. justin faulk we could only dream to have a young stud like him to play mac. oh right dont we have a del zaster

  121. Rob in Beantown on

    Oh weird. I just looked at the standings and it looks like it averages out your performance and spits out some realistic looking standings. That’s not so bad. I thought I was going to get zero points from the last three weeks.

  122. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Agreed stranger

    Trade hank, mza, and kreider to buffalo for miller, vanek, John Scott, and sallycrepes

  123. Matty"GetBetterNasher"Boy on

    I’d like to play against Marty Biron. Hope he is a backup somewhere and the coach puts him in against us. Not to say our shooters could hit the spot, but his 5-hole is as big as it gets. Everyone knows it.

  124. Anyone else notice we have the 2nd worse defense in the league as far as being scored on? 25 goals, only Edmonton is worse with 29.

    YIKES!

    But now that Biron is gone, that’s FIXED. Oy vey!

  125. Yakupov is only scratched because he was scratched for one game (it was announced as a one game thing) because the team wanted him to watch from the press box because his defensive skills are terrible (sound familiar?). The team played well, despite losing, and the Coach wanted to keep the same squad out there.

    Yakupov isn’t getting traded.

  126. Somethings up there. Why would a top 50 player (fantasy rank) be on the bench???? He’s being shopped for a solid scoring Defenseman (maybe Del Zotto)

    I could see this as a possibility with DZ’s contract up next year. We need more scoring skill. Yak has issues with playing 2 way hockey, but the kid can score.
