Not sure if I’m looking too much into this, but when the Rangers won the ECF, Richards waved the whole team over for the pic. Brown was there by himself.
This is just one example, but it seems like a pretty tight group.
As usual, Manny fails.
We really haven’t had a completely successful test of this equipment. I blame myself
That was a Ghostbusters quote to highlight how bad I am at my job of notifying people of Fresh Posts
Don’t cross the posts.
I looke at the post, Ray
It’s a sign alright. Going out of business.
Ray. When someone asks you if you’re a God, you…say…YES!!!!
Press snares extremely rare Brad Richards interview.
I miss hearing Sal “Red Light” Messina on the radio with Marv.
Rangers in the Cup Final? DOGS AND CATS, LIVING TOGETHER! MASS HYSTERIA!
It sounds like you’ve got at least two or three people in there already.
damn this stupid avatar bet. Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer would be perfect right now.
Tell him about the Twinkie.
How about you just break the bet because Sioux won’t stop talking about TJ Oshie.
That’s a big Twinkie.
I seriously hope Kristo NEVER plays an NHL game. Just to piss of Thad Falinger.
Or what was your other name? Punjab something.
Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?
...you, guys, are joking, but someone somewhere in a dark part of Universe, knows already who will be a winner of SC.
Ask Mr. Bryzgalov himself…
Does Bole know he’s being scratched in favor of Powe?
I can’t wait to see Powe light it up.
I wonder what number he will wear though since Coach Klein has taken over #8….
Hasn’t been a single crossword puzzle successfully completed in Ranger locker room since Powe departed.
Justin Falk is trying, Coos. But, apparently, unlike Powe, he didn’t go to Princeton.
This just in: Powe and Asham replacing Bole and Moore for game 1.
Justin Falk’s wife 6 weeks pregnant. Refuses to travel, but available for home games.
Powe attends Princeton alumni reunion, finds, at 1.1 million, he is lowest paid member of his graduating class
They should put Falk in for McD. Fresh legs.
Agree, Gravy. Kings in 4.
I don’t think Prospal played this year. Maybe we can sign him to a two week contract. Replace Stepan, who’s too slow to keep up with the West.
Yeah, I’m a little cheesed off over here. Wasting time with audio of fourth liner Brian Boyle. Guy barely scores.
Give me Princeton Powe and his words of wisdom instead.
It’s going to be long two days, I’m afraid…
Does anybody follow Vaclav on twitter just to see how tan he currently is?
If they want to score goals…they better bring up Kung Powe. He was known as an elite goal scorer when he was here. Sent him down to Ho-ford to learn how to back check.
Hose him please..
Not sure if this was mentioned….when the Rangers beat the Devils to win the ECF Finals in 94,
MESSIER not on touched the TROPHY, he grabbed it and hoisted over his head!
Can someone explain to me the actual dichotomy of East/West? Why is it notoriously different styles of play? What is geography doing here?
It’s going to be a hilarious two days, ilb.
Beast Mode Rules!!!
Hey BickelsPickels @ 1:56….”explain dichotomy”???
C’mon now…..Is it really necessary on a Bonehead Blog to ask about a surgical procedure 2 days before our beloved Boys take the ice for the SCF?
Life is just a Bole of cherries.
Knibb high football rules!!
Boyle scratched. Powe in. As expected.
If anyone tries to cheat, especially with my wife, who is a dirty, dirty tramp, I will just snap. Is that clear?
(that’s a movie quote, not a comment about Mrs. Machetto, who is dignified and wonderful)
What day is it?
Nudie magazine day!!!
Either Doris or Jason.
No cheating – especially when playing stoopball
The Mucus Queen is yours.

Jim Rome is an arrogant tool.
What did he say now
LA in seven, among 10,000 other dimwitted dribbles.
An he says it all like he was handing down to Moses the tablets.
Federal agents surround 1,200 naked Sutters in Deliverance, Georgia for taking Burt Reynolds an Ned Beatty hostage and starting brushfires.
This series will not go 6 games. I will not be so lucky.
Spotted with binoculars Knuckles Nilan wearing my Tommy Bahamas jams and scoping out my tomato plants.
Jim Rome is a plague upon the earth
My thighs (easy Joe Mich) are sore because I’m out of shape from putting together a playset for the kids this weekend. Now I know how Manny feels on leg days.
I HATE leg day!
Kooz – what’s your beef with Jim Rome? He watched a hockey game 3 years ago.
Can we call up Duclair? He has really fresh legs.
I feel like I did 1,000 squats, and I’m as assistant coach for my son’s little league team and have to catch.
any update on the WBM stanly cup final edition?
ugh i hate leg day too…
Oh god. Really!? I cannot crouch for that long. Just take a knee!
All Toads lead to Rome.
My leg is always sore. Given all the pounding it does it’s not surprising.

Bergevin is getting reamed for letting Weise come back in after his concussion.
Bergevin saying that Weise would have been available for game 7 despite suffering a concussion in game 5.
He said, although concussions are sensitive and tough to diagnose they can only go on what the player tells them.
A thigh is just a thigh. As time goes by.
Never liked the squat part, but always loved the thrusts.

genius. Gravy. Genius.
Weise was out of Game 5 for 7 Minutes. Not the required 20 Minutes for a concussion test.
i think leg day should be moved up a rank or 2
Will Hill no longer the thrill.

Rangers vs hawks Kings. Anyone checking on Olga?
Woman Reporter to Gordie Howe:
“Why do you wear a Cup, but not a Helmet?”
Howe: “Because I can always hire someone to do my thinking for me.”
E3, my dog loves his squat every morning.
Manny said getting reamed
Buttman on 660 AM.
Francesa says he’s getting freebie seat for Game 3. – courtesy of guess who?
Let me guess, Buttman doing backflips because it’s NY v. LA, even though he locked out the league three times for parity.
All the while Bettman is refusing to honor Jersey purchases made on the website at a price he wasn’t comfortable with.
Doodie – when a male dog is doing the nasty, it always looks like they’re a catcher giving signals behind the plate
#Thurman Munson lives
Buttster: “On any given night in the NHL, any team can win.” Guess that’s not true in any other sport. Duh.
Sports lover Buttman discussing “valuable assets, resources.”
Can someone explain the logic to me?
“Henrik Lundqvist HAS to steal games.”
“Jonathan Quick doesn’t need to steal games. He can let in a few as long as he makes timely saves.”
How does that make any sense? They are assuming the Rangers will score a few.
GoofCesa doesn’t even mention Carcillo. Probably has no idea who he is.
He probably didn’t know who Bettman was until some intern filled him in.
Quack is going to ball gag plenty this series. Even Dorsett is going to score a few…
I’m currently on Hold with Delta trying to figure out my in flight options for seeing/hearing this game on Wed. Night
Doooooood’s the kid can score. But with MSL & Zucc in front of him he may never get a chance with the Rangers.
He just needs a shot. That’s all.
I don’t care if they trade him to the Jets for Kane.
He has the wheels and the wrist shot to score.
Are you still talking about Kristo? Jesus
Sioux reminds me of myself 3 or 4 years ago talking about Zucc!
Not sure why Kristo never got a chance. I hear he is good.
Management needs more proof on Kristo. At least 80 proof.
Doodie, It’s like this if the Rangers don’t with the Cup this year, at least a Fighting Sioux Captain get to engrave his name on the cup.
The bonus to this, is Matt is the type of player that would bring it back for a Sioux-per Swing golf tourney I could play in and spend a day with the cup.
Always a Good Thing!!!
Which Step and McDonagh could do as well, so its win win :)
At least I thought I did. That was one QUICK wipeout!
Something tells me when the DOOMED Rangers lose, a Sioux captain getting his name on the Cup isn’t going to be a consolation for me.
lip strive IS NOT ALLOWED!
I hope he never, ever plays.
Except Zucc was IN the NHL.
I am nervous.. Talk me off the ledge. The Kings remind me of the Bruins! We didn’t fare well against the Bruins. As crazy as this sounds because they were defending champs, I think we matched up much better against the blackhawks. And the hawks goaltender was no Jonathan Quick! The kings won 3 seven game series with all 3 game 7’s on the road. That is SICK!
And I hope Parise and Oshie experience nothing but failure.
Did Gravy win the bracket challenge or does it depend on the series outcome?
Kristo has a terrible attitude I thought
A lot depends on Staal and the 4 through six Dmen.
Nevermind, I think NYR_Fan (BOOOO) can win if the Kings win the series.
Someday, some brave sportswriter should tackle Miller and define the problems.
Gravy has won NOTHING
Two things are certain, NYR_FAN will win the bracket challenge, and Sioux will get his team’s former captain’s name on the Cup.
Anyone who picked against the Rangers should be shot
COOS can you please email me at Paulmaraplayoffbeard@gmail.com
I can see the post now:
Great season by the boys. They fought hard all year, but came up short. At least a Sioux captain got their name on the Cup…that should make everyone feel better.
Having been fortunate enough to have met Boyle, he would likely be flattered and humored by all the talk about him. He’s as humble as they get.
Trade Bole!!!!! Extend Powe!!!!
Does Boyle know he’s being scratched yet?
Worst consolation prize ever.
Can they ‘drop the puck’ at, say, 6 pm EST today? Been a long wait already.
Here’s an observation to push you further out on the ledge, Yev: last night with ten plus minutes left in the game- down a goal- on the road- in a building where they hadn’t had much success- they panned the Kings bench. I was shocked to see a team that didn’t even LOOK concerned- I didn’t even sense intensity or edge of the seat readiness- “They know they’re going to win” I thought- “Got them right where they want them.” And who would have taken a bet that they didn’t?
If there’s one thing that terrifies me, its inferred confidence.
Except that after the puck dropped in OT it was as 50/50 as it could get. So they had that much chance to lose while remaining confident on the bench.
Hey guys: I put a nice post up for your enjoyment at The 5th Sometimes-Annual, 2013-2014, Paul Mara Playoff Beard Contest website. This is the longest that this sometimes annual contest has ever gone. Hoping to see some amazing after pics!
LOL Gravy. I’m gonna drive to North Dakota and punch Sioux in the face if he says that. Then I will say hi to his AWESOME wife!
Good post, Manny. I literally get told I’m not as handsome as Hank every day. Way to keep it real and topical.
The Kings win is bogus. Jeff Carter’s goal was clear;y offsides last night….another failure by the officials. Just another epic referee failure.
Ointment is topical.
AV: “I like our chances”
Real inspiring stuff.
New video up top: AV: We’re the underdog … but I like our chances.
Please click early and often … and then do so again.
audio to follow.
I think it was Gaborik’s goal that was clearly offsides. I think it was actually Gabby that was offsides.
The Sutter’s, heck of a family Joe.
tropical is topical
OH! I mentioned this yesterday but….
“Get right back to where we started from…” is the song that the Rangers have been playing in the dressing room post win.
Here is the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqxqyU31ays
I was watching Slapshot and realized that the song is played a lot in Slapshot whenever they show the bus driving.
I hope that is why they play it.
On the same note, I assume they play Sweet Home Alabama because of Tam Cablot’s alma mater?
Well, at least we won’t have to worry about Gaborik scoring in the playoff games at MSG.
I’ve had it with Kristo. Can we trade him. Hasn’t played a game yet and I’m sick of him. Thanks Sioux. I may boo him first time I see him.
Who supplies the microphones for these Pressers, Marcel Marceau Enterprises?

Nice post, Manny! Great job!
Just curious, is mrs Manny helping?
AV had better keep Ulf between himself and Papa Sutter or he’s liable to have his trousers and undies around his ankles.
Thanks for reading C-Dubs!
Mrs. Manny has not helped. If she had helped you think I would have a leggy blonde there to attract ORR to the website?
Maybe if Ulf goes to Carolina we can trade them McIlrath for Faulk. Has that joke already been made?
Fresh post, Mannu.
also tell the Mrs. I dislike the Islanders more than she does.
Confirmed, Kenny doing Game 1 on NBC …
He will have, or already has, covered all of the last 17 games played in the NHL.
Speaking of ORR, can we talk about how there was finally Missandei T&A on Game of Thrones last night? I think some other stuff happened too, but that was the by far the most important thing.
FRESH POST YOUSE GUYSES
“Confirmed, Kenny doing Game 1 on NBC …”\
‘L.A.’s fine, the sun shines most the time
And the feeling is “lay back.”
Palm trees grow and rents are low
But you know, I keep thinkin’ about
Making my way back.’
My belief…........,at some point during the 2nd period Wednesday night, all doubt will be removed and I’ll come to realize, yes we have a legitimate chance to win the STANLEY CUP!!!!!!
For that is truly when the pressure and anxiety of the moment will kick in for real.
