I’m not asking to be first three in a row, but if you’re going to keep lobbing them up there.
I think I got all the foot soldiers from the last post. No child Bonehead Left Behind!
Dolan, five foot two, eyes of blue, get yourself a tie, you shrew.
Are we here now?
Are we there yet?
Schonny is the funniest guy alive. Since he spent three weeks running nude in the forest trying to get that fat 40 year old defenseman in shape last season, he’s a ball of laughs.
Dolan: “Wait, that’s my money we’re paying him with?”
Hank: “Hey, Rocket Richards….I just got a 7 year deal!!”
Rocket: “Ok, then I’ll say good bye now, my friend.”
Richie: “Guess I picked the wrong day to ask for a raise.”
I have no idea what post I’m on. This is like Obama’s Health Sign Up.
I bet there’s a clause that says Hank must hang out with Dolan atleast one weekend night per month.
Hank: “Hey Richie. I just got a 7 year contract for a ton of money. Higher Cap Hit than you but less Yearly. Cool. right?”
Richards: “I get the same thing but I don’t even have to play for it. AND another team will pay me a second salary! BEAT THAT. Also, I got $12M last season! LOL”
AV: “We’ll have Talbot in net again tonight. The other guy, I think, needs a bit of time to work on his game.”
Richie: “Oh, you got a bump in your paycheck! I thought you said I need to backcheck”.
The signing of Hank had to be done. The term is good. the dollar amount is what he had to go to. It’s a lot, but it’s not really our concern. Sure I would have like $7.5 or $8.0M, but that is entirely unrealistic.
I cringe to think that ‘Bob’ won the Vezina after Hank. There’s NO comparison, Hank is a seriously good goalie.
He loves NYC, he fits here.
Time for him to enjoy what he deserves, to play more games, get in game shape (this is not enough activity for him), and see what happens.
Sign Callie then let’s make some trades and get real. Not only is Richards gone, but I have this strange feeling about Girardi and MDZ. I just wouldn’t be surprised.
Hank and his Fender guitar now appearing monthly at MSG with Billy Joel and ‘Jimmy Dolan and the Nutshots.’
I would think Callahan is next for a extension.
And I totally agree with Stranger. Please no more smurfs. We have enough of them, even our big guys are wimps. Let’s trade the few assets we have and get some skill that is playable tough, if there is any out there.
Henrik tosses paper onto King Size bed, says to wife, ‘Count it!’ She says it’s just a piece of paper; He says, ‘No,it’s a Promissory Note!”
She says, ‘Does Macy’s take Promissory Notes?’
Sather: ” I just don’t understand it. The fans are crying for size. I already have size on this team. Nash, Boyle, Chicken Poulet, and Pyatt. What are they kidding me??)
Reporter: ” But, Mr. Sather, I think the fans are looking for ‘playable toughness’.
Sather: ” Now, i am really confused. We have that, too. We have Callahan, Zuccarello, Hagelin. You ever watch them??”
Matty @ 4:32, Bazinga!!!
Like a cop about to retire, Richie will slip on the ice the last week of the season and throw out his back for two years. Danger!
Yes, the more I think of it, G-man is getting too expensive and he doesn’t fit this coach’s style. He’s not an offensive defenseman, by nature. He can’t clear the crease. Now that Torts’ system is gone, he isn’t as good a defenseman. And, he costs too much.
He seems to be an awful nice guy. Has been a good soldier.
What can we get for him?
I just finished that book that coos wouldn’t shut up about and heavily recommended called Don’t Call Me a Goon and it keeps talking about how Glen Sather LOVES to get toughness and physicality on his team and to make it such a centerpiece and I’m like….Yea….he used to.
Not to disagree re Girardi, but I think we need a few tough stay at home Dmen and let J Moore, MCDonuts, and maybe Staal push the issue on the other end.
Maybe we can sign Joe Dan Girardi’s son Landon? He looked like he had some skills on 24/7. We can start molding him now.
There’s some 4 year-old kid out there who will lead us to the Cup in 2031-32.
Richie wants to play for Oates.
‘good soldier’ is a great epitaph!
Girardi: “How many goals do I need to deflect in before they consider me offensive?”
Mannu, interesting insight on the “goons” being on-edge before game, nervously anticipating that night’s goon opponent.
Did you guys read the article about George Parros on ESPN today?
Won’t be long before some company mates a Crosby with a Nordic woman speed skater and sells futures on the kid.
Lloyd did, Kenneth didn’t. I haven’t gotten a chance to yet but its in queue.
They should call Parros Prince Ton. And then, later, ‘the artist formerly known as Prince Ton.’
That is such a scary thing to have to think about Coos. Knowing what’s coming and more than likely who.
Very fascinating, Coos. I’m glad you pushed it so hard and I finally relented to your relentless badgering.
I only mentioned it because the article didn’t make it sound like Parros spends much time sweating out the other team’s goons. But I guess not everybody is Parros
And knowing it’s your job, Seee, and you float to your own detriment. Richie’s job is infinitely easier.
ESPN wrote about Parros!? WTF
That’s because Parros is busy running this amazing company. I forget the name of his clothing company….
Rob – they NEVER admit any nervousness until they have safely retired.
You’re welcome Manny:
VERY generous picture on the cover of the article. That is a BIG man he is fighting…
Light years, piles, loads, buckets easier.
Did you guys see the recent fight between Parros and Orr where Orr caught Parros’ head before it hit the ice? Kind of amazing.
No Manny, but on my way to hockeyfights…...
I just checked it out, Rob. Really interesting.
That’s a good point Coos. Parros alludes to that phenomenon in the article
You got something correct. Golf clap
I have no interest in Parros or spending valuable time reading anything about him.
What did you do instead?
Carp, No” sounds more like Sather than Carp.
Unless of course you were actually saying you would not have made that deal?
RSVP! (:) How about a poll of your constituents to see if they believe this was the right move all things considered with the organization?
I cast the first no!
JR – “the extension is modulated by the result often”
Your valuable time spent here on the worst blog on the internet was put to better use?
Great article, Rob, Manny.
JR – “the toughness of any player is multitudinal from his team mates”
Do any of you people have jobs? I mean, I’m paid to post here from time to time, so that’s different, but I didn’t know the rest of you had deals as well.
(BTdubs, mine’s for seven years @ 7.2¢/yr. with a 5¢ option in year eight, thinking now I might have gotten the shaft.)
JR – “by the time you finish something, you already started it most of the time”
Norm, sometimes the meaningless can prove very entertaining…...just keep reading! (;)
Well poop the bed, First day since my wedding day that I haven’t checked in on anything blue and I miss this announcement. Mega contract that pretty much makes him a Ranger for life. I’m sure tons of you are irate and think we’ll never sign a quality forward or dman now.
Wouldn’t be surprised if we see 3-4 of the current top 6 dmen depart over the next year or two.
JR – “the relentless magnitude of a playoff game is filled with it’s reduction”
‘All Paid Jobs Absorb and degrade the mind.’ Aristotle, 384-322 BC. (And that ain’t Boston College)
EdwardIII, sometimes with shipmates too!!! (;)
EdwardIII, like certain sauces!
JR – “whenever you play in an important game, you have to occur”
Engblom – “are any of you reading how stupider JR is? He is more stupider than even me and often it means he is stupider than me”
JR – “common sense, here is a question that proves it’s conundrum – who is stupider? Me or that stupider Engblom?”
Would have been cool for Aristotle to be at BC for 62 years, though. Might have helped Boyle with his forehand, helped “The” pick up his in-zone systems more quickly, perhaps.
Engblom – “JR is so stupid he doesn’t even know that a 5 on 3 is a three man advantage”
JR – “haha Engblom is so stupid. A 5 on 3 isnt a three man advantage, its a one man advantage hahaha. That is so funny I remembered to laugh”
JR – “congratulations on your marriedness. Always treat your wife better than your other girlfriends”
You sure about this @HLundqvist30 ???
A rock, JR, and Engblom walk into a bar. The bartender says “I see you’re here with Dumb and Dumber” JR says “nice try but I’m not dumber” Engblom says ” I’m stupid not dumb”
The rock just smiles….
Engblom is correct. But, who didn’t know that?
EdwardIII, in the annals of blogdom I would never associate your occasional strangeness with stupid.
You are qualified as a blog mystic or shaman if you prefer! (;)
‘Smell the sea and feel the sky;
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic.’
Did I say that this blog was the worst on the internet? You will have to find me where I typed that. The writer is a no nonsense kind of guy with knowledge of what he types about. The same could be said about a few of the posters besides myself; Lloyd, EEE, Matty to name a few.
Don’t try to ingratiate yourself, Kenneth, until you capture the Frequency.
Attempt to Capture the Frequency #1: “The structure of your tale deceived me for a moment into thinking it was over.”
Calgary Hitman fund raiser for the second year they throw teddy bears on the ice after they score the first goal. 26000 of them!
Attempt to Capture the Frequency #2: “A team of twenty players will be always called a fine team, where there are heads and arms and legs enough for the number; but the Rangers had little other right to the word, for they were in general very plain.”
I would never attempt to ingratiate myself. I am a leader, not a follower.
“I was sent by the agency, sir. I was given to understand that you required a valet.”
“He was poured into his uniform and someone forgot to say, ‘When.’”
Interesting tweet by Luongo Rob. I really feel sorry for him, you know, stuck with that horrible contract making millions of dollars for years and years.
“He was white and shaken, like a dry martini.”
“Your wit’s too hot, it speeds too fast, ‘twill tire.”
“The one sure cure for gray hair was invented by a Frenchman. It’s call the guillotine.” No play for Mister Gray!
I had a twill tire on my Honda, but it shredded.
Dolan looks like he’s a drug addict.
Gauguin to Van Gogh: “You paint too fast.”
Vincent: “You look too slow.”
“Warble, Coos; make passionate my sense of hearing”
Thank you? lol. Wedding was a couple months back Carp. I just missed out today because I was stuck at work ; )
Gauguin to Van Gogh: “You paint too fast.”
Van Gogh: ”.....what????”
Dolan looks like the type of guy you’d see in line for a scone somewhere in Larchmont at 11am on a Tuesday..
Lend me an ear.
arsch mit ohren
and I’ll sing you a song…I will try not to sing out of key…oh baby I get by with a lil help from bone-heads..
Drug addict? I’m a billionaire you little toad.
Try to avoid my Rolls Royce while your hopping and skipping across Fairy Way in your pink dress and tutu.
That’s “you’re”, Mr. Dolan. Try to sound more like a billionaire.
And you also dangled a modifier in your press conference. Buy a degree.
i knew that, James. It just sounded as if you were announcing it to the crowd today :)
Jack Capuano is on the hot seat. The Islanders are laughable.
Every seat Capuano sits on becomes hot sooner or later.
I want $8.5 million salary too :(
Flyers and Wings rivalry?
They must be still talking about the Stanley cup finals that happen 16 years ago.
So, now that Lundqvist is signed…Is AV’s job also safe for 7 years?
Junior Dolan, this is the sport’s world’s version of Richard the Third handed a Sax but demanding a Scepter.
Interviewed recently wherein he claimed “everything done by Sather and his Hoops lames has been the right move”.
With no one to challenge the fool’s assertions with facts!
It’s time for an Occupy MSG movement, form your battalions, and don’t forget a naval presence to storm the beaches of Oyster Bay! (;)
Remember the 80s? He doesn’t…
Not if Hank decided he wants to get another coach fired.
JR – “the end gesticulates the means”
JR – “when you are at the top of the mountain, you have to go down the mountain”
What could be more important than saving lives or going to war for you country? Watching these athletes getting big paychecks makes me annoyed.
JR – “it’s not a question of if but why”
JR = “Life is like poulet, you always know you’ll end up in the box”
JR – “Ich bin ein buffon”
Who cares what Lundqvist says now? LOL…he is already signed to play here for 7 years…
I want to be a Ranger for life… but it will cost you $8.5 million to keep me here.
JR – “it’s not whether you win or lose, the main thing is always something”
Just stole this from friends facebook wall lol
“PSA: When Henrik Lundqvist’s 7 year extension is over, the New York Islanders will still be paying Rick DiPietro.”
rolling on the floor!
Engblom – “JR is stupid. If you go to the top of the mountain you are already not at the bottom”
So true NYR_FAN. We should have signed him prior to last season and then kept Torts.
yes… and we should’ve have kept Duby, and AA and prust…and also had to lure Cherepanov to NHL earlier so he could still be alive, and protected sauer from getting concussed and we shoulda kept Messier and Gretzky from retiring and resigned Jagr and….
None of those are the same. I am not a Torts lover. I appreciate that he is a good coach, not a great coach.
JR – “It’s only snowing when it’s not raining”
JR – “To pimp or not to pimp, that is the answer.”
this Devils-Habs game is hilarious. Looks like another three-point game not involving your NYR.
You’re right, Carp! Any Gerbils loss is hilarious!
The Rangers should be better than the Habs. They have more talent (I think). But the Habs have above average goaltending, PK Subban, Prust and Parros all with some Eller and Pacioretty and the youngster Gallagher. Well put together team.
What’s the frequency Kenneth, thoughts?
And the Mets will still be paying Bobby Bonilla, CCCP
here i stand, head in hand…..
torts – “turn the ******* radio up, i ******* love this ******* song”
Engblom – “It is aversive to block Chara’s shot”
I always wondered what kind of music Torts liked. Judging by his jeans I assume it’s Billy Ocean 24/7
Manny – Heartbreak beat…Psychedelic furs
Torts would me an REO Speedwagon type of guy
That’s a damn good song, Eddie. Love the Furs.
manny – werd
REO Speedwagon was played in the 24/7 he was featured on.
The furs and echo & The Bunnymen shredded the 80’s
I bet he loves the wagon
torts to sather re:gabby “Dont let him go….”
Love those bands, Eddie. And The Church.
Manny@9:53, they are a well put together, balanced team. They have many of the things we can only wish we could have but don’t. They have two booming point shots, from defensemen that can control the PP. All the players you say above, a little guy with creativity, named Desharnais, Moen, and don’t forget Gionta.
They have the old, seasoned, monster, Doug Murray on ‘d’ and 3 other guys in the 220 lb range. Subban? Markov (if he ever is not on IR). Everyone had said the last 3 years we have such a great ‘d’? I’ll take theirs any day. Sather should watch this team to see what balance he is missing. Amateur.
Price and Budaj are a good 1-2. As we have seen on any night they can shut you down.
No, that’s not an imposter. They’re for real. As you said, nicely balanced and put together.
I still believe Boston’s the best put together team in the east.
Aside from the Fishshicks, that is.
he’s got a wick and flame at both ends…..he’s hot…..he’s the kind of guy the ladies dream about
English Beat, public image Ltd and I also liked the Cure. Funny these were new wave in the day but now you hear them on “Classic Rewind”.
Classic REO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zwNUdk5roM
why is my link to Reo’s “dont let him go getting the moderation tag?
he’s a sweet talking stud that can melt a girl’s heart with his pout
dont let him go ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Much better said than I did, Matty!
Speaking of Duguay:
he’s got a long wik with a flame at both ends, he’s hot.
Great bands, C-Dubs. Great. I was just talking about this with my hairdresser today how that’s probably the best era of Pop Music and people are finally starting to admits they actuallu like it and weren’t just being ironic.
Yes. Boston is tops. Tippity top
but dont let him go, take it easy take it slow….dont let him go….
classic alternative is major perfect
Devs and flyers have tied rangers. Doesn’t take a genius to say this 9 gm home stand is vital after Tom night.
Nine must win games.
So you figure that you’ve got him all figured out
He’s a sweet talkin stud
Who can melt a girl’s heart with his pout
He’s the kind of lover that the ladies dream about
He’s got plenty of cash
He’s got plenty of friends
He drives women wild
Then he drives off in a mercedes-benz
He’s got a long wick with a flame at both ends
But don’t let him go
Just give him a chance to grow
Take it easy, take it slow
And don’t let him go
He makes you so angry
He makes you so sore
The weight may be worth it
But how can you wait anymore
When you’re wonderin what you’re waitin’ for
Baby I don’t know
But don’t let him go
He just needs a chance to grow
Take it easy, take it slow
And don’t let him go
Don’t let him go
Takes awhile sometimes Manny.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.
Hank is in that high fidelity first class traveling set. I think he’ll get a Lear jet.
The 24/7 song was the SpeedWagon hit “Roll with the Changes” which is an awesome and absurdly long song.
PIL – may the road rise with you
Anger is an energy, E3.
could be wrong, I could be right
could be wrong, I could be wrong, I could be right,
I could be white, I could be black
c’mon, Carp…time to get over the breakaway contests they sometimes hold after the hockey game ends. It’s part of the game
walk thru the valley, the written word is a lie
May the road rise with you, may the road rise with you
They put a hot wire to my head…
Love that song.
anger is an energy, anger is an energy
may the road rise with you, may the road rise with you
It could be long, it can’t be white
i could be white, i could be black
I could be black, I could be white
“I was just talking about this with my hairdresser today”
Nobody responded/noticed my Kinks lyrics today! Huge fan of them.. they bring up fond memories of my uncke..
may the road rise with you
Neil Smith’s eyes >> Johnny Rotten’s eyes
Sorry Latona, like the Davies boys too.
Latona – i was not on earlier to see your Kink’s reference…great band indeed :)
could be wrong, I could be right
That should be uncle.
The Kinks are one of those underrated bands that everyone acknowledges are underrated and yet they are still underrated.. Ray can write masterfully unique lyrics and I love his delivery.. Dave can play..
manny – i bet your hairdresser would agree that Duguay is very pretty
Ray and Dave got along great (s)
Latona – The Animals are almost in that same category as a band getting “no respect”...bad timing to come along same time as The Stones< The Who, and The Beatles
The Who & The Kinks were the original punks. Had too much talent to be roped into that genre.
Followed by The Clash
The Pistols, The Clash, The Jam, Siouxsee and the Banshees
Don’t forget the Monkees..
Happy valley Sunday
Love The Jam’s lyric “just a kick in the balls”
George Sanders would still have style, and if you stamped on Mickey Rooney he would still turn ‘round and smile..
SNation. A great show in 82 (I think) in LA Coliseum The Clash opening for the Who
A few days before the LA show, I saw the Who play at Jack Murphy stadium in SD. I was 5 ft from the stage….Pete is/was such the punk – that show is on youtube somewhere….
Watching The Paladium channel…Smashing Pumpkins show from Brooklyn
Yes it is Latona….a terrific channel
I heard it through the grapevine my Hairdresser.
Torts vs AV on http://www.nhl.com/ MIC’D up.
Ex3 – saw that Who/Clash tour at Shea – pure adrenalin
another punkish band – Midnight Oil, those guys put the hammer down and the spngs have meaning
He’s a rebel and he’ll never be any good, just because he doesn’t do what everybody else ..
My barber is Albanian and if I called him a hairdresser, he would stick a pair of scissors in my ear.
Ex3 – Zoolander for eight more years…whoopee
Phil Lesh & Friends signed up for 40 shows at Cap Theatre in Port Chester next year – will be at more than one if you let that deal go down
Wicky – the kids are down on ya boy Broshard. Me thinks the centers are stinking up the joint top to bottom…dont control the middle, dont control the game
I’ve noticed that…he’s top 6 on this team right now and should have been all season IMHO. Depending on moves tho, not sure if we will or should keep him next season.
I would, I think given the opportunity he’s a better all around player than step and can put up similar numbers.
I like Brassard. He and Dorsett are my two favorite players. Don’t get all the hate….
