Get sad sometimes watching Dubi. He’s a playoff beast. Does it all.
Dubinky never played like that for NYR in the playoffs, that’s for sure.
Not saying he was bad though, just never seen him as dominant like that!
I hate leg day
Give them up for adoption!
Dubinsky certainly dominated that Gatorade cooler.
Yeah, that was a nice Hulk Hogan body slam!
Rumour has it the Gatorade cooler is filing a suit against the nhl for allowing that blindsided hit by dubi.
If you all remember, Dubi was a maddening player in New York; he showed the grit & determination and some skill but he never was consistent. Took dumb penalties at times, took games off it seemed, running around trying to hit guys. With CBJ, he seems to have matured, got the A on his sweater and is one of their leaders. Is never going to be a 30 goal scorer but a solid 2/3 centerman
though I think he is still inconsistent. I think the “A” might have made him less so.
I haven’t watched Dubi much this season,other against our boys and in these playoffs. Dubi didn’t stand out too much against the NYR so I see what you’re saying, Carp. Still like him and his grit but Cally is a better player than Dubi, you’re right!
That’s a good point re the “A”
I remember Herb Brooks giving Barry Beck the C and explaining how sometimes a guy needs that push.
(probably didn’t make Dave Maloney too happy).
When is the live chat
Excellent. I’ll ask Dave about beck getting the “C” from brooks during the chat.
Nothing like trying to schedule a hundred plus employees and your scheduling computer system has taken a huge Rinaldo for the past 3 days
Young Dubi was still learning and developing with the Rangers. Different player now.
Honestly, since the Cup team, I don’t recall any Ranger forward playing in the playoffs at the level that Dubi is playing this Pittsburg series. And that includes Jaromir the Great, Nash and all the other Superstars / Mercenaries.
That’s 3 days consecutively in a row
What’s with these 2:10 starts? Extra commercial revenue?
Is that our Sunday start time?
Tikkanen in ‘97, Papa.
ESA! Yes-a Carp!
Atta boy Rick.
@ 3:01 of the live Chat
Your truth seeps through though :)
Dubi and Voros after every game on the back of the bus or plane talked about where they would go drinking and getting drunk. He was young but that was a behind the scene issue.
Alfreddson a healthy scratch? The Canadian media will murder Babcock.
Or does that only happen if it’s an American coach?
Not that Major League Baseball is a stalwart of credibility but consider the following:
MLB gave Michael Pineda a longer suspension for trying to doctor a baseball than the NHL gave Matt Cooke for trying to end a careeer.
The National Hockey League: Not a sport, a running gag.
Pineda really got 10 games!? Wow
CDubb – it’s Bab Cock
It’s only 1 or 2 starts, but I assume he loses the pay too. Harsh.
Rob, 10 games is mandatory for the rule he violated. No discretion permitted.
Meanwhile, the umpires will only “investigate” these types of infractions during the game if and only if the other team complains, even though the umpires may heave personal observed the suspicious activity.
meanwhile the National Hockey League, suffering from the most brutal bout of amnesia on record as result of the ratification of a new CBA a year ago has no recollection of the dozen or so times Matt Cooke has committed what amounts to felonies while wearing a hockey jersey and decided he deserves a stiff slap on the wrist.
Papa, my bad.
Lloyd, just as bad, we all know the “unintentional” blind-side drive-by shoulder to the unsuspecting Carcillo’s jaw from Read would have been at least a 5 games suspension if it was committed against Sydney Crosby.
Oh absolutely. If that was Carcillo hitting Crosby that way, which in all probability would send him into outer space for the next 9-18 months, Carcillo is facing Nuremberg-levels of punishment right now.
I think the B’s are the toughest team in the East but I think John Amirante would stomp the tar out of Rene Rancourt.
When Rancourt passes away, a Volkswagen with twelve clowns and four vampires in it parks in front of the Wake and all jump out.
I just saw that Montreal swept Tampa Bay, 4-0. Based on the stats, former captain Ryan Callahan was almost invisible in the series. 0 goals, 0 assists, 5 shots on goal in 4 games despite averaging over 20 minutes of ice time per game.
That 10 game suspension is mandatory in the minors, not the majors.
Pineda did not attempt to doctor a baseball. He had on his neck the same foreign substance that all other pitchers use. It is an unwritten rule that teams do not report pitchers for using pine tar because teams don’t want the blow back on their own pitchers for using it.
Callahan didn’t really do himself any favors in pursuit of that huge contract he’ll try to sign this summer (hopefully not in New York)
Didn’t umpires at one time check baseballs if they suspected “foreign substances?”
call it what you will, “Alain Amour” but MLB suspended him for trying to doctor a baseball. that the dummy was stupid enough to get away with it once and go about the same thing again against the very same team tells me he’s dumb enough to deserve a suspension.
He did not “get away with it once” because it is an accepted practice in baseball.
oh so they just suspended him for the hell of it
I saw a lot of questions about THE.
An accepted practice is rolling through a Stop Sign. Until you’re ticketed for it. Tell it to the judge that it’s ‘accepted.’
I just realized Michael Pineda wasn’t suspended because covering your hand and neck with pine tar is an accepted practice and I hallucinated the whole thing.
I love the Baseball experts (writers and analysts) who excuse the use of pine tar bt a pitcher as “only grip enhancing” and not really used to affect the flight of the ball. Oh really?
I thought how well you are able to grip the ball is a major component of how fast you can throw your fastball or how well you can break off a curveball.
If I can’t grip, I probably can’t rip it.
common sense would suggest that both causing the ball to stick to your hand and adding weight to one area of the ball would effect its flight but Pineda wasn’t really suspended so who am I to question it
He was suspended because one team broke the unwritten rules.
You can drive through stop signs that have no markings on the back without penalty. Think before you type.
Gaylord Perry won over 300 games and struck out over 3500 batters with the aid of ‘foreign substances.’ The ball danced and was almost un-hittable. Don’t tell me it was simply ‘grip enhancement!’
Alain – ask yours doctor if hemlock is right for you.
Pineda puts pine tar on his neck because it keeps the vampires away.
Batters use pine tar to grip the bat.
Jon Lester used a foreign substance in the World Series last year.
Are we going to question every pitcher that has ever used pine tar to get a better grip of the baseball?
That would be insane.
We live today in a world where every absurdity has 10,000,000 champions.
I just heard a radio sports guy on 710 AM excuse Pineda saying he may have been using pine tar so he wouldn’t hit any batters in the head. So, It was because he was concerned for hitter safety.
Do these analyst listen to what they say and are paid for their ridiculous commentary?
“So, It was because he was concerned for hitter safety.”
Hitters use pine tar so that the bat does not fly out of their hands. Safety.
Agent for Ryan Callahan said every report his client has given him about the Lightning is ‘positive,’ and team ‘in the mix’ for next season
(I imagine he hasn’t yet told Whyzerman he wants 6x$6.5M.)
If the team was so concerned with Pineda’s use of pine tar, why don’t they turn in their own pitchers for using it?
That’s about as absurd as thinking pine tar doesn’t have any effect on a baseball.
Alain, ask your doctor if voluntary confinement is right for you.
Gaylord Perry’s training regiment consisted of Reingold and Raisinets. Guy was a physical specimen. You don’t see as many doughy pitchers these days.
Why are we talking about stupid baseball? The hockey playoffs are more important.
Sciolism, yep had to look that one up.
cooscoos, isn’t your mother calling you for dinner? Trouble hearing her from the basement?
“The one beer to have when you’re having more than one”
Try using that slogan in today’s world.
Ligtning are “in the mix”, like there’s this incredible demand for a grinder looking for 6 years and 36-40 million. Great PR work by the slimy agent.
lol Cally’s agent. TB is “in the mix.” He thinks he has Babe Ruth.
If I had the Rangers’ money, I would win the Stanley Cup every year.
President and General Manager
Anyone word on why the Hagelin / Vorucuk altercation was deemed roughing?
Were Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder refereeing the game last night?
Dear Mr. Sather:
WTF happened? We would settle for one or two. So far, you are zero for 14.
NY Ranger Fans Everywhere
Gaylord Focker….are we talking about movies with Ben stiller?
Banning Pineda,a pitcher, for ten games is like banning Cooke from tonight to tomorrow afternoon.
Pineda should not be banned for 2 starts. It’s a baloney rule. Most if not all pitchers keep pine tar in their belt for ease of application. Pineda is an idiot for putting it on his neck when the world would be watching. Whatever. Maybe he should wear his baseball cap on straight, too.
The Fishsticks should grab Callahan.
If not the Fishes, then the Pens.
I expect bruins close this out in 5. They were real dominant game 3.
Just what we need to see cally playing for isles or pens. Praying he signs in buffalo or stays in tampa
Game over for the Wings
Good evening all! Come ON Wings!!!!
Eric, I’m with you on that….
Anyone notice how Brandon Dubinsky resembles Howard Walowitz from “Big Bang Theory”?
Wings got some jump.
There’s no crying in baseball, except for Mess fans
Chara’s brain bucket looks like a peach basket
No crying yet, they’re 12-10. We reserve crying for when they’re eliminated from the playoffs. In June.
Is mcquaid not in for the bruins?
The playoffs are usually over by mid June.
So technically everyone is eliminated
As a mutts fan who has a family full of mutts fans, we enjoy the transition right into football season on Labor day without worrying about baseball anymore…
Is Ference an axe murderer or just pretending to be one?
What time does the charp start?
“That’s a jackhammer. That’s a flat out jackhammer”
JD referring to Joey Kocur as he fired right after right on a San Jpse Shark.
Question for you…if cally gets like $6.3 mil per, which one of the 3 Cs (not the Ukrainian here) is closest to worth their contract? Callahan, clowe, or clarkson?
real mutts, like me, want Wings to win…
What’s a San jpse shark?
Love the avatar, wick!
Callahan is going to Tampa or Columbus. Book it!
That’s they way Neil Wilkinson spelt Jose after he got hit with the Jackhammer.
Chara is a statue out there
looks like i wont be getting a hat trick tonight and i have no problem with that.
wicky, I got an issue with your avatar….not feeling mama love..wtb???
Neil Wilkinson ( San Jose Sharks ) vs Joey Kocur ( New York Rangers )
wow – that’s some fun hockey to watch
Wow, after seeing that video Lev posted the other day, that looks like a dive from Chara. Pathetic!
wick, IMO, Callahan. I think Clarkson is a whiny clown. Clowe is very damaged goods. Callahan, of course, will probably be hurt during the contract, and the back end of the contract will likely be awful. But at first he should be a good player on the right team.
Wild arena is buzzing…. it’s sad how quiet MSG is in comparison to all the other playoff arenas. Hell Dallas was 10x louder yesterday.
The worlds most overrated arena
Parise played all those years in front of a half-empty arena in Newark. He ha taken aback by the noise at the X.
here’s the Bruins diving video again:
Carp, you can settle this..the crowd at MSG often saddens me, but I think during the playoffs, they’ve risen to occasion….of course, I’ll happily know in person Sunday…
What a shift by Minny!
Avs going to miss Barrie
I almost choked when I saw Sergeant Doakes in that video. Haha! Surprise motha fugger
Check last nights thread, it will all make sense re the avatar
Thanks for the response. I agree. IF clowe was healthy it would be him without a doubt, but he isn’t. Clarkson’s is just terrible IMHO
You can put Jah Rue and Old MacDonald in that video for the Filth. they are a joke
Also putting Charlize Theron in that video. Nice move!
Chara, on hands and knees, looks like Timmy the Turtle.
Divers tie it up
Two goal leads are baaad
deadly 2 goal lead
Brookbank and Seabrook should be reeled in by the Fish.
Wicky, if I had he time to be here all the time, as I used to, I would…Right now I am trying to be all Wings…
Wild completely dominating. They might regret not potting one or two more..
Kuemper hasn’t given up a goal at all since taking over in net
Love the Boston diving video. Awesome!
Kronwall with the shovel shot!
Yeah, that makes sense Doc.
LOL! Doctor Emrick cracks me up
Another OT game! Crazy.
and i dont think this ends in the first OT
Soderberg for the Bruins
Zetterberg for the Wings
I picked Kane last night, but the blog died.
mama love to wicky…who works so hard and is still here when he can be…
Pavel – Wings
Don’t care – Bruins
Wings badly need this win. I can’t see them getting back into this series down Tree-One
Holy crap, MacKinnon is good.
Butt-Chin puts the Kings up 1-0
Man, I hate this hybrid icing so much
Seems like the refs let everything go during the first overtime, then tighten up during the second.
Huge save by Monster
At the risk of laying the jinx on him. Gustafson has been monstrous in this OT.
Avs answer back. 2-1 Wild
By the way, while McIlrath is on NYR’s taxi squad, Charlie Coyle is scoring big goals for the Wild :)
Nyquil has been super quiet this series
Datsyuk is SO good.
that one’s on SeeeDubbb :)
Yep, that’s on me.
Iginla with the deflection right of Dekeyser’s leg
Shame when OT games end that way.
Fug fug fug fug fug!!!!
I picked Wings in 7. I still have a chance!
As much as I’d like DET to advance, it will be awesome to watch BOS-MTL!
BOS-MTL is going to happen. And it’s going to be nice.
Yeah, better be a blood bath.
If there’s no blood on the ice, you know the MTL fans will come up with something.
Damn! This Sharks team is nice! What a goal! 1-1
I think we are seeing handshakes tonight, probably in OT
Gabby Gabby Hey!
Jon Quick has had a very rough and unlucky series…
Carp, did you win the lottery? :)
All these songs NBCSN keep playing are horrible. Music today really sucks.
7 shots by the Avs. Nuts!
Wild with a defensive clinic. Can they hold on?
When the Kings get eliminated tonight, will we still have to watch Dustin “Kneecap” Brown’s FOMOH commercial?
Well, they’re still playing the annoying OvechCANT commercial, so I guess they’ll continue to play the Dustin Brown commercial
Late PP for the Avs!
Johnson saving another EN goal. Can COL tie it again?
wow very Tortorella-esque effort by Minny.
Good for MIN! This has been a great series!
What a win!
The secret to erasing a 0-2 deficit in the NHL playoffs is to injure one of the opposing teams top players
Hawks did it to Backes, and the Wild did it to Barrie.
Lev, MIN outshot COL 32-12. That’s about as far from a Tortorella-esque effort as I’ve ever seen!
I love how Roy pulls his goalie with a little under tree minutes to go. Puts more pressure on the opponent, and caused them to take a penalty pretty quick. Gave them an even better chance!
4-2 in Hollywood.
ORR, it’s surprising that more coaches don’t try it.
I could go for some toffee ice cream right now!
NYR should try it more often. Pulling their goalie with under a minute left never works out.
Honestly, I can only remember one. Dubinky set up Naslund for a last minute goal against the Bruins, I think it was.
FOMOH, AWESOMESAUCE, Somebody left the gate open, 15% on car insurance…. repeat… any other commercials these days?
think Ruff also pulled Let-one-in with 10 mins left in 3rd a couple of games ago
2 goals for Gaborik…..
that would be funny is the Sharks imploded in these playoffs too.
That Honda commercial with all the fuggin pieces of rinaldos that keep saying “today” makes me want to eat someones face off.
Sharks get one. Five-Tree
If the Kings blow this…wow!
King will win it
Getting ugly in the final seconds!
Burns punching Gaborik. Wow!
I think this all the time now. Ill be the first to tell you there is a ton of great music being made again. But the corporate NHL has a deal with some talent agency. every year, its the same type of soulless pop music. MSG is using the same songs that NBCSN. Its all so controlled and proganada like, that the music being pushed is corporate owned music and terrible pop music.
Its a pet peeve of mine, the music used by the networks at every chance. the big one is called survivor by Eminiem.
