Kreider signed, Sather still has work to do


Here’s my story from The Journal News and

By Rick Carpiniello

The Rangers once again avoided arbitration with one of their restricted free agents Wednesday when they got in under the wire with a two-year agreement with winger Chris Kreider.

Kreider signed a two-year deal worth $4.95 million — he will receive $2.35 million in 2014-15, $2.6 million in ’15-16 for an annual cap hit of $2.475 million — shortly before his arbitration case was to be heard.

Rangers Report logoA day earlier, Rangers GM Glen Sather reached a one-year, $3.5 million deal with Mats Zuccarello, who also was headed to arbitration. It is believed that Sather will continue to negotiate an extension to Zuccarello’s contract.

The signings leave the Rangers a little more than $7 million in cap space, with two of their restricted free agents still unsigned. Derick Brassard, who has a Monday arbitration hearing scheduled, will probably get more than $4 million per, though Sather is aiming to lock him up for multiple years. If he gets to arbitration, Brassard could then become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Defenseman John Moore, who has no arbitration rights, will probably come in at less than $1 million per, though it could take time to get that deal done since Moore has little leverage.

The Rangers still have not replaced, and will not be able to replace, Brad Richards via free agency. They will almost certainly have to fill out their roster with their own inexpensive young players, such as J.T. Miller, Jesper Fast or Oscar Lindberg.

Kreider, 23, who started last season in the minors, established himself as a top-line winger and power forward with 17 goals and 20 assists in 66 games. He reached free agency a year early because the Rangers started his three-year entry-level contract when he was signed for the 2012 playoffs.

    Im soooooooo FIRST!!!!

    Good job Carp , hope your having a great summer!!

  2. Shouldn’t that say Kreider, 26, ??

    And thanks for the mid summer reminder that we are stuck in Cap hell, Carp : D

  3. Nice article, Carp. But we always expect that of you! Will be interesting to see how they handle Brassard, as others have noted.

    I would like to figure out how to get some Ranger players out to help me work on a beautiful, remote trail in the Shawangunks which needs lots of work…can’t seem to find any of my regulars to come out and help, despite the incredibly beautiful weather and beautiful trail…last weekend I worked 4 hours clipping dense brush, plus an 8 mile hike (2+ hours just to reach the trail) and didn’t get back to my car until 7:30 PM. Anyone with hockey player connections who can get them to come out and help for the good publicity, let me know!

  4. Good morning ‘heads,
    Hope all are having a fine summer.
    I’m very happy aboot this news…good stuff.
    One error in the article Carp: his name is THE Kreider!

    WOOOOOO!!!! Let’s go summer!!

  5. So beyond Brassard and Moore, the Rangers will still have some cap space left.

    So OV’s fiance broke off their wedding plans. Her reasoning was that she could not deal anymore with OV’s “habits”. Not other girls, but habits. Wonder what that means?

  6. If anyone wants to take the stuffed Zuccarellos idea and run with it, you have my blessing. All I ask for is 10% of sales and a 12 pack.

  7. You can all vote as much as you want. Voting is not conclusive of a winner though. I have to confer with *SALLY*

  8. Zucc will make more with this contract, than all his other contracts combined.

    NOW if he pulls off another 60pt season, then what. How are you going to fit Zucc, Step, & Staal into next years cap. One of them will have to go, unless MSL takes a cut or retires.

  9. I wonder if I would get sued for copyright infringement by Tolkien’s family if I created a stuffed Zuccarello.

  10. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Lol, Gravy. Good one. I do love me some big men…I call them *Bears*

  11. Nothing more musical than creating music on a computer. Then pushing the keys to make the music be all musical.

    “Hello New York City! Are you guys ready for the space bar? Here it comes.”

  12. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    “Tell the light guy to turn on the strobe because I’m about to drop a beat that sounds just like everything I have ever made!”

  13. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    “Thanks for coming guys. I spent ten minutes making this 45 minute song. Hope you like it. When I hit Space Bar you all better start Dancing!”

  14. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    CCCP loves Electronic Music, Doc. You just like horrible “Indie” Rock.

  15. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    untz untz untz break celestial sounds woman’s voice shattering glass celestial buildup untz untz untz ad infinitum

  16. I think “indie” “rock” would be more appropriate. A lot of it doesn’t rock. And (most) electronic music sucks. Like as bad as metal.

  17. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Metal is a gigantic category of music. It’s a massive, massive genre and I find it difficult to believe that anyone could possibly hate it all.

  18. (Full disclosure: Since my last post, I just heard the first song from Dan Boeckner’s new band and it was kind of electronic-y sort of and I liked it. Wolf Parade was awesome. And Canadian so appropriate for a hockey board.)

  19. Electronic music >>>> techno, house, trance, dubstep, etc.

    Having said that, even with electronic music, the art of performing it live is lost because I just can’t get past the fact that these guys probably just pressed “play” on their iTunes and all the other movements they do are for show.

    Take a band like Sylvan Esso, who are pretty electronic-based. They played on Jimmy Fallon a few weeks ago. It was a decent performance, but I couldn’t help but feeling it was karaoke.

    Perhaps there’s a reason Daft Punk went for real instruments on their record last year.

  20. _Metal is a gigantic category of music. It’s a massive, massive genre and I find it difficult to believe that anyone could possibly hate it all._

    I’ll put my sarcastic response first then my real response …

    S: “I totally agree with you, Manny!” – 1988

    R: I like almost no music that would be described as “fast” or “loud”. The occasional song from a band I like is fine but I would be surprised if I have anything to really rocks start to finish. Closest would probably be Japandroids which, if you are unfamiliar (or maybe even if you are), is a terrible band name. I recognize this.

  21. Ok, by Yergs solid delineation, there is definitely electronic music I like. M83 is dope. I just tried to watch the doc on the last LCD Soundsystem show last night but with two people sleeping upstairs it was impossible. The talking I needed the sound at 40 to hear and the music was at 16 and I was getting texts to turn the TV down. Man do I have a tough and very interesting life!

  22. Bands like M83 and LCD are awesome because they actually are, well, bands. They play live instruments, and they certainly don’t dumb down their music.

    Was that doc any good (Despite the lack of sound)? I haven’t seen it yet. I’d like to see that and “Mistaken For Strangers”… Manny, wanna see Mistaken For Strangers with me?

  23. Hey Manny, did you hear about the Power Trip, Mammoth Grinder, Razorheads, Ajax show at St. Vitus?

  24. I only got about 15 minutes in. Whenever they got to showing the opener (“Dance Yourself Clean”), it went off. So I have no idea beyond Murphy seeming like a dude who should be the next cube over versus on stage (in a good way).

    Mistaken for Strangers I’m still figuring out how I felt. Its either “I would have liked it more if I weren’t a super fan” or “I only tolerated this movie because I’m a super fan”. No idea.

  25. These bands are all foreign to me. I pretty much like the same 10 bands I liked in the mid-90s.

  26. I know Pearl Jam has to be one. Anyone who paused their music discovery in the 90s is a Pearl Jam superfan 100% of the time.

  27. Manny

    What you and booby (hey booby, thanks for making the space bar joke again. It wasnt funny the first time either) described is called EDM (electronic dance music) aka commercial crap I do not listen to. Psychedelic chillout (Psybient, psychill) is what i mostly listen to….look it up. Very creative music and It takes a lot of effort to create.

    Please, don’t ever stop learning.

  28. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Lol. Learning. I love someone that listens to “Psychedelic Chillout” telling me I need to learn.

    Sounds like spa music.

  29. Neither, MD. I don’t dislike Pearl Jam, and I owned their first three albums (though Versus is with an ex), but not a huge fan.

  30. “So OV’s fiance broke off their wedding plans. Her reasoning was that she could not deal anymore with OV’s “habits”. Not other girls, but habits. Wonder what that means?”

    He’s into the Russian Orthodox nuns again?

  31. Even though I hadn’t made a space bar joke before, CCCP, it’s still flattering that you remembered something about me. You’re sweet.

    Also, I’ve been a musician for about 20 years now. Electronic music doesn’t take much creativity. I know this because I know how to make that crap, too (poorly). It’s super easy. We can set up a playdate and I’ll show you how simplistic it really is.

  32. Here my top 20 bands. While it’s somewhat an exaggeration that they are the only ones, it’s not a huge stretch.

    Type O Negative
    Alice In Chains (even with the new singer)
    Primus/Les Claypool
    Jane’s Addiction
    Screaming Trees
    White Zommbie
    Pink Floyd
    Led Zeppelin
    Black Sabbath/Ozzy
    The Doors
    The Who

    Honorable mention to Beck, Ministry, Filter

  33. *White Zombie

    Also, that was in no particular order…just listed 90s first, then classic rock, so back off man!

  34. _Also, I’ve been a musician for about 20 years now. Electronic music doesn’t take much creativity. I know this because I know how to make that crap, too (poorly). It’s super easy. We can set up a playdate and I’ll show you how simplistic it really is._

    Isn’t that kind of like me saying “I can rap because I can write down some rhyming sentences and talk them over a beat”?

  35. I meant anything Psychedelic, or Psychill music. That includes psy/progressive rock etc… which spa you go to Manny that plays psy tunes? Let me know and I’ll be there every day.

    Ps, metal is straight up garbage.

  36. In general, there should be a rule that you don’t seriously condescend an entire genre of music just because you don’t like it, with the one exception being country songs which are a never-ending litany of middle school educated southerners answering the simple question “so, what did you do today” in far too much detail.

  37. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

  38. Sort of, MD. I’m pretty much saying that even without caring and without trying hard, it’s really easy to make electronic music.

  39. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I completely agree with that, Mister D. One of my music teachers made electronic music. But not Techno or whatever. He made very out there electronic music that was heavily sampled by Radiohead on Kid A. His music was pretty lifechanging.

  40. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Except _actual_ country, like Roy Acuff and Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Loretta Lynn and all that other amazing stuff, is actually terrific.

  41. Thanks, Booby. Music is very personal, and I get that some people won’t like bands on my list (just like I don’t like entire genres for one reason or another).

    At some point in my life, I felt a really strong relation/connection to the music and/or lyrics from these bands that really ressonated with me.

  42. 1. Mr. Bungle – California
    2. Isis – Panopticon
    3. Animal Collective – Strawberry Jam
    4. Burnt by the Sun – Soundtrack to the Personal Revolution

    7. Meshuggah – Obzen
    8. Nothingface – An Audio Guide to Everyday Atrocity
    9. Botch – We are the Romans
    10. Helmet – Betty
    11. Fantomas – The Director’s Cut
    12. Pink Floyd – Animals
    13. Primus – Sailing the Seas of Cheese
    14. Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
    15. Radiohead- Kid A
    16. Melt Banana – Cell Scape
    17. Jerseyband – Beast Wedding
    18. Deftones – Adrenaline
    19. Deicide – Once Upon the Cross

    25. The Locust – Plague Soundscapes

  43. ‘Round, like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
    Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon
    Like a carousel that’s turning running rings around the moon
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
    And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.

    Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own
    Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone
    Like a door that keeps revolving in a half forgotten dream
    Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
    And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.

    Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head
    When did summer go so quickly? Was it something that you said?
    Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand
    Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand?
    Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song
    Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong?
    When you knew that it was over you were suddenly aware
    That the autumn leaves were turning to the color of her hair!
    Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
    As the images unwind, like the circles that you find in
    The windmills of your mind!

    Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head
    When did summer go so quickly? Was it something that you said?
    Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand
    Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand?
    Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song
    Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong?
    When you knew that it was over in the autumn of good-byes
    For a moment you could not recall the color of his eyes!
    Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
    As the images unwind, like the circles that you find in
    The windmills of your mind.’

  44. That’s a comprehensive list, Manny. I think I’ve only listened to about 12 of those albums in full.

  45. ‘You wear a dress, baby, I’ll wear a tie
    We’ll laugh at that old bloodshot moon in the burgundy sky.’

  46. Booby, I only have one ISIS album (In the Absence of Truth), but I heart it. I have to pick up the rest of their albums.

    Speaking of which, am I the only person left in the world that still likes to buy physical CDs?

  47. One of the musical projects I’m involved in is this ambient noise improv stuff that’s made with mostly (gasp) electronic elements.

  48. I hate when you make those lists, Manny, because it makes me feel so pigeon-holed in my interests.

  49. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I have been working on that list for nearly six years, Doc. It’s also important to know that I was fortunate enough to grow up with a very musically inclined father and I was a jazz pianist for most of my life.

    My entire life has revolved around music.

  50. Booby

    I can make you a dozen of simple electronic tracks and I am not even a musician…unless you can duplicate or at least come close to showing me in a super – duper easy way how to create this kind of track (see bellow. Find it on YouTube because for some reason my phone won’t open any YouTube links) I am not interested in play dates :)

    infected mushroom -heavyweight

  51. Elton John said that he once played and sang for 10 hours straight. I can’t believe the straight part.

  52. Gravy, re: ISIS

    Start with Oceanic and Panopticon…and I stopped buying CD’s about 10 years ago when my car broken into and 2 books containing about 200 CD’s were stolen. That’s when I started dowloading.

  53. Noted, Booby.

    And I’m not sure why I still buy them, since the album art and such is really stripped down these days. I usally rip it, let them sit in my bedroom for two months, then throw them in the attic.

  54. I’d like to put nice album covers up in my basement but I don’t own a record player and I bet some of my favorite albums never came out on vinyl anyway.

    Also, 36 Chambers was and still is just the best. Its amazing to listen back on it and how truly awful the quality of the recording is.

  55. _We are not the same person. We have hung out. IN PERSON._

    Every day. In your condo. Alone.

  56. ‘I ain’t lookin’ to compete with you
    Beat or cheat or mistreat you
    Simplify you, classify you
    Deny, defy or crucify you
    All I really want to do
    Is, baby, be friends with you.’

  57. Agreed, Coos. Its my right as a white male to co-opt a minority groups name for sports and memorabilia stuff.

  58. eddie 3x is in an extended snit because someone said he (the poster) didn’t like Al Gore.

  59. _Fighting Sioux is less offensive than Indians or Redskins._

    I agree, but this probably shouldn’t be a game of “if you’re not the worst, you’re ok”.

  60. Washington keeps the name Redskins, but puts a potato on the helmets with a feather sticking out of it.

  61. Manny, Eric, & Carp can vouch for me, I’m not Kristo.

    Guilty as charged for being a Sioux HOCKEY fan!

    And pulling for them to be a success. I’ve never met him in person. I’ve met Parise, Oshie, Commadore, Blake, Hrkac, Joyce, Belfour, Cullen, Staal, but I’ve yet to meet Danny Boy!

    I’m just pulling for the kid to get his shot.

    That is all.

  62. You’d think the Redskins would relish a name change because of all the new memorabilia they could sell.

  63. The board of the NCAA is such a joke.

    The pull the name, but take the profit from selling the Jersey they retire. Hypocrites. The tribe even sued, trying to keep the name.

    Just a complete lack of leadership on both sides. From the tribal leaders, to the president of UND, and the Governor of the State.

  64. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I did meet Sioux. He’s MUCH bigger than Kristo. Sioux is actually man sized.

  65. So if we EVER get another nickname…… I would love it if they picked ND Tsunami’s :)

    They way 12,000 fans can still Chant “Let’s Go Sioux”

    It could stick.

    Give us the Carolina Hockey Jersey in Green & White.

    And let ALL the fans from the last 50 years wear their old Sioux Jersey’s.

  66. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    _Washington keeps the name Redskins, but puts a potato on the helmets with a feather sticking out of it._

    That idea was actually seriously presented by PETA. Best thing they have ever done.

  67. Seriously though, if you are a FAN of hockey, you should watch a hockey game at the Ralph just once before you die.

  68. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I think the PETA joke is quite funny. Redskin is a potato. So keep the name but change the logo to a potato.

    I don’t know why they got involved. Maybe it was just another opportunity to make a female celebrity get naked.

  69. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Even when I was vegetarian (for about 5-6 years) I hated PETA. They are so damn annoying

  70. Sioux also has never played an NHL game. And may be younger than Kristo. They are very similar. ;)

    _You’d think the Redskins would relish a name change because of all the new memorabilia they could sell._

    I don’t get this part either. You wonder if he’s a great businessman who knows something we don’t a bad businessman who got lucky and now just rules on ego.

  71. If I was Schneider and wanted to keep the name, I would do exactly that.

    America’s team. Raised on meat and potatoes. Everyone eats potatoes.

    Mr. Potato in a Red Suit :)

  72. Who do you hate, Wicky? I always find that as or more interesting than who people like, especially inside a genre someone likes. Like (as a white male) I should be into the Hold Steady but I hate the Hold Steady.

  73. If I were Tom Carvel’s heir and opened my final Carvel franchise, I would call it ‘Custard’s Last Stand.’

  74. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Vibin’ on that one, Doc. I used to play shows with those guys. (does that count as name dropping?)

  75. “You wonder if he’s a great businessman who knows something we don’t a bad businessman who got lucky and now just rules on ego.”

    I’m not going to attempt to correct this.

  76. Ha. It started as a (1) or (2) or (3) construct until I realized I didn’t have a (3).

  77. Latona, I dont think its write for you to correct every one more then I think its write to name a team red skins. Their is alot of more important things you could of be doing. You should of thought about what your doing their.

  78. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Thanks, Wick. If you could spend some time on it that would be GREAT

  79. In my wishes, his real name is Latana but he miskeyed a letter the first time and is too stubborn to admit the mistake.

  80. Hey manny- this is for you.

    just listened to this song by the liquid tension experiment _osmosis and the next song i heard was titled Acid Rain. Right up manny’s alley

  81. Kristo is a Ranger/Wolfpack player for another year.

    I’m thinking he will lead the Pack in points again. Then be the next “PA Parenteau” type Ranger player. Not “lucky” enough to steal a spot from the OLD VETS on the Rangers Rehab list.

    The following year he will get signed by the Islanders/Leaf/Flames type team and go on to a 50 -60 point season playing on Nelson/Frattin/Knight line.

    Or he could get a shot on the 3rd line this year and stick.

  82. I think Liquid Tension Experiment is the drummer from Dream Theater’s (Mike Portnoy) side project. It’s got members of Dream Theater and members of not Dream Theater, so I’ve always just assumed it’s bad.

  83. hahahaha. thats what i was thinking about that Acid Rain song.

    I didnt mind at the osmosis song. But Im sucker for ambience and mood music

  84. Last seen playing with Asham and Defending the Blue Line hockey tournament, for charity.

  85. I downloaded this song by a guy name Tycho- its called awake. I was in the pacific northwest and utah. to this moment when I listen to the song, Im in my car out there.

    Tell me you can’t vibe to this song Manny.

  86. John Petrucci – Guitar
    Jordan Rudess – Keyboards
    Mike Portnoy – Drums
    Tony Levin – Bass, Chapman Stick

  87. Manny with your references to Robert Johnson and Coltrane, you might appreciate some artists on the verge of electronic, like Kyoto Jazz Massive (try ‘Eclipse’, if interested), and others pushed fully into electronic, like Klingande (try ‘Punga’) or Bakermat. You may not dig the repetition of a lot of it, but I for one appreciate the borrowing of instrumentation across genres that electronic music allows.

  88. I can appreciate electronic influenced music, and some bands I listen to incorporate it. But, it’s hard convey emotion and connect through a computer the same way you can through a traditional instrument.

    In my opinion.

  89. I consider myself an observer. I like experience things firsthand, I like to blend into scenes and situations that aren’t my own.

    And It is my opinion from being in the middle of bass nectar and other EDM shows, that there is some form of hypnosis going on there.

    Manny is dead on. Its like ‘when the bass drop, all you guys will pump your fists and all you ladies will shake your butts’

    but sitting in the middle of a sea 15 thousand people getting down to BassNectar is pretty wild.

  90. Love your first point, jpp.

    My old lady wanted to see Bassnectar so we went. I didn’t expect to enjoy it.

    I was dead wrong, though. Something pretty awesome happened. It might have been the booze. Can’t be sure.

  91. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Thanks Corky. That’s some awesome and productive recommendations.

  92. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I heard that Bjork concerts are pretty fist pumping as well. I would love to experience that.

  93. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I would love to. I saw her in person once walking down the street because she lived about a block away from me in Brooklyn. I chased her (like that time I stalked Paul Dano) but I couldn’t keep up with her tiny little Icelandic legs.

  94. Gravy and Manny

    i’ve got to jump into this music discussion but
    i’m only here for a moment.
    like a lot on both of your lists!
    i’d go with Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti” as my favorite

    since my tastes run all over the place i’d probably throw in
    Grateful Dead (yeah and all the offshoots)
    The Beatles
    Elvis Costello
    Neil Young

    can’t do albums yet but i’ve been obsessing
    on Camper Van Beethoven’s “Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart”

    used to listen to Ministry and Sonic Youth when i worked at a record store……fellow employees used to beg me to take off “Daydream Nation”……i didn’t

  95. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Beatles are on my list!

    Costello and Neil Young are both Gods. Good call.

  96. Most DJs nowadays have zero talent and expensive software…

    Electronic music used to be a lot better…

  97. MDZ might take league minimum, even play in Hartford to get back to the vicinity and challenge the Zucc and Hags romance.

  98. _I’m thinking he will lead the Pack in points again._

    Kristo was 3rd in points last year. PA Parenteau had already played an NHL game at age 24.

  99. Ok, I have a few minutes…

    In no specific order

    Edith Piaf
    1 Pierre 2 coups
    Sun kil moon
    Rob zombie
    Lykke li
    5 finger death punch
    Ariana delawari
    Alice in chains
    Sick puppies
    Drowning pool

    Probably a few more I’m missing

  100. Doc – he was a leader in goals, points until he hurt his leg. It was a reference to PA, he lead the Pack for a couple of years, then got 22 games on the 4th line for the Rangers. They let him walk, before he got his shot.

    I think the Stemp signing is going to take a position away from a Pack player. Kristo didn’t get a shot last year, and didn’t break through. With AV playing Miller & Fast ahead of him, he will be full time in Hartford. Playing on a much better team, with all the AHL talent Sather signed this year.

  101. Florida is pretty thin in the goal scoring department, I could see Grimaldi getting a shot on the Panthers, before Kristo gets one with the Rangers.

    If Nelson lands on the Top line with Tavaras, this season he could have a really good year.

    Frattin was successful playing for the Leafs, and he will be back in Toronto for 2 more years.

    Kristo is every bit as good as these players. He played side by side with them in college. Knight got 7 games last year for the Flames. So both are on the bubble of breaking through.

    Now will he get a shot this year, we shall see.

  102. No. You didn’t say Nickelback. Couldn’t of. No. It’s not possible.

    In my opinion.

  103. Stempniak, Mueller, Lombardi, etc. will not hold back anyone. Their contracts can be buried with no cap hit.

  104. I am admittedly *not* metal but have enjoyed the lists and the discussions. I will say that any list of mine would include Derek and the Dominoes and Little Feat. Waiting For Columbus, a live Little Feat album may be one of the best live albums ever.

    I first heard it on a vinyl LP, remember those?

  105. Late to the game but AMAZING list above manny.
    Glad to see some love for Pixies, Built to Spill (MY FAVE) and Pavement!

    My guilty pleasure is Pearl Jam. I dont think there is an album they made I dont like, no code is iffy….

  106. Gut feeling August 19th Tuesday will be jumbo joe Thornton trade to rangers. Brassard leads a package heading west.

  107. sorry Manny
    i scanned the lists and didn’t see Beatles listed.

    thanks to Wicky
    The Ramones
    Todd Rundgren

  108. Booby
    Figured everyone would love nickelback ;)

    I’m a diverse individual…don’t tell Eddie x 3 ;)

  109. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    The worst part about U2 is that their “best work” should be credited to Brian Eno.

  110. U2 and their music up to and including Rattle and Hum I like quite a lot. Post 1988, not so much.
    But, hey, that’s me.

  111. Doodie Machetto on

    I’d rather put a pile of Doggy Machetto’s “best work” in my ears than listen to U2’s.

  112. If we’re talking music, ill hang around more often..

    VIbin Manny’s jazz and motown
    Vibin Booby’s AC- Strawberry Jam mention.

  113. one thing about U2. they know how to make a ballat. I can rattle off like 6 classic rock ballads.

    My dad always hated on them. Saying they were so simple and not musically talented. But Pride and One have both been favorites of mine, One for the message, Pride because it makes me want to take on everything wrong in the world and be everyones backbone.

    From a little kid, I was always drawn to the selfless man who put everyone before themselves. Then I had to go through the school systems and everything tries to teach you to just look out for yourself. I think I was most lost in life when I was trying to fit in.

  114. in chronological order of who I heard first

    the beatles
    neil young
    the beach boys
    billy joel
    bob marley
    motown compliations
    BB king, nat king cole
    pearl jam
    green day
    smashing pumpkins
    The dead
    Bob Dylan
    The shins
    Animal collective
    TV on the Radio
    Iron and Wine

    Really into funk music right now. Love big bands. love a lot of instruments. love horns.

  115. Chuck Knoblauch arrested for assaulting wife. He also threw a humidifier at her, but luckily it sailed over her head.

  116. Rangers West on

    Drive Like Jehu
    Do Make Say Think
    Godspeed You Black Emperor
    Mouth of the Architect
    A lot of Dave Bazan’s projects
    Fugazi is my gold standard (For rock bands)

    Interesting to see what people are listening to as they comment on hockey.

  117. Chuck Knoblauch. 4 time World Series Champion. Thats 2 more than Mets franchise history. :)

  118. Stranger Nation on

    Ini Kamoze
    Black Uhuru
    Barrington Levy
    Frankie Paul
    Peter MacIntosh
    Bunny Livingstone
    Robert Nesta
    Cocoa Tea

  119. yep
    forgot to add
    Bob Dylan
    Bob Mould (Husker Du, Sugar)
    Bob Marley

    Lou Reed
    !!! (chk chk chk)

    John McLaughlin
    Chemical Brothers

  120. my sister, a bunch of her friends, and I were at a Soullive show at the brooklyn bowl in march. They played for like 3 and half hours. came out 3 or 4 separate times, played until 2am. They were doing beatles covers, elton john.

    it was one of the best shows Ive been to with my sister. If not the best.

    One thing Ive never liked about shows. I dont like when Bands are promoting a new album, and play the majority of that album during every show of their tour. I feel those type of tours and shows are artificial.

    The best is when you catch you a band playing in the town they live in, they have friends coming in, when it becomes improv basically. The realness, as opposed to the performance.

    Thats partly why I hate hearing athletes referred to as performers. It gives me this notion that the higher uppers in sports just want to showcase their athletes abilities, and that they dont care as much about the time-honored idea of competition.

    And I can’t lie, Im human. I love competition. I especially love when there is nothing life or death or monetary at stake. Most competitions in life lead, to the winner gaining something while the loser, loses or doesn’t obtain something important to the livelihood of themselves, their families, their people.

    Sports are one of the few things in life, that is an all-out competition that doesn’t result in loss of life, or lose of position, etc etc etc.

    Maybe we should move all the war mongers down to del boca vista and put them on a bocci ball court for the rest of their days.

  121. Stranger: That’s an awesome Reggae list!

    My reggae list of like 10 tops would be:

    Steel Pulse
    Black Uhuru
    Buju Banton
    Vybz Kartel
    Damian Marley
    Bob Marley
    Cutty Ranks
    Super Cat
    Shabba Ranks

  122. Looking through everyone’s list(s) I am so effing proud to be a Bonehead. Everyone is so well versed.

  123. Mogwai was one of the single best shows I have ever seen, Rangers West. That’s a terrific band.

  124. Maybe we should do movies today.

    The Life Aquatic
    The Science of Sleep
    The Pianist

  125. Doodie Machetto on

    I was briefly skimming, saw Booby said electronic music takes no talent and sucks, but then listed Kid A as one of his top 25 albums. Does not compute.

  126. If we do movies its:

    The Big Lebowski
    Life Aquatic
    Dr. Strangelove
    The Jerk
    No Country for Old Men
    There Will be Blood
    The Ghostbusters

    I would need weeks to compile an actual list.

  127. Hipster Machetto on

    I could list all of my favorite bands but you’ve never heard of any of them.

  128. Kid A is *not* electronic. It samples heavily from electronic music but when you see those songs live the entire band is playing an instrument still.

  129. Yea. I’m not doing Movies. It’s too much. I would need hours to look through my DVD collection and recall what I actually like and then what I should like to make me look cool.

  130. Robby Bonfire on

    The best “work” Sather could do would be to retire immediately as the inept and profligate spender of other people’s money that he is.

  131. As I said, Kid A was sampled heavily from my professor in college, Arthur Kreiger. It’s only Samples of electronic music. They didn’t actually _make_ any electronic music.

  132. Doodie Machetto on

    Still heavy electronic production even in the live performance. Preprogramming your synth so that it replicates the digitally recorded sound you made while you are playing it live is still electronic in my book.

    In other words, when they recorded the album, they weren’t using the instruments.

  133. Doodie, this is simple brah. Kid A is not an electronic album. Yeah, it uses samples and synths on the recording, mostly for texture, but it was predominantly created and subsequently replicated at live shows with instruments.

  134. Rob in Beantown on

    Annie Hall
    The Empire Strikes Back
    Kill Bill
    Blade Runner
    Mel Gibson’s *Apocalypto*

  135. *Sampling*

    “Idioteque” contains two credited samples of experimental 1970s computer music. The first is several seconds of Mild und Leise, a piece by Paul Lansky, forming the four chord progression repeated throughout the song. Mild und Leise is 18 minutes long and through composed. The portion sampled by Radiohead is only heard once in the original piece, very briefly. *Also sampled is “Short Piece” by Arthur Kreiger, now a professor of music at Connecticut College.*[8] Both tracks were compiled on the 1976 LP First Recordings — Electronic Music Winners, which Radiohead instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood stumbled upon while the band was working on Kid A.

  136. Rob in Beantown on

    Those are probably not my 5 favorite movies, just 5 movies I really like that came to my head first

  137. Robby Bonfire on

    I am never again going to feel “apologetic” for going off topic, on occasion, at my NBA blog site of choice. But I have to admit, the Ramones are probably a more uplifting topic than the old fat guy with more cigars in his pocket than brain cells in his head whom we chastise once in while, at this venue.

  138. *Doodie* we were referring to music where the person performing it presses *spacebar* and walks away. That kind of electronic music.

    Radiohead didn’t even make the beats on Kid A. It’s just SAMPLES. Synths are not electronic music although they themselves are electronic in that they must be plugged in. They are instruments which mimic other instruments or, actually create new sounds. They have to be played by a person the whole time.

  139. Rob in Beantown on

    Good call on the Life Aquatic. It’s probably the only Wes Anderson move I don’t hate, though.

  140. Rob, try Moonrise Kingdom. It’s really funny and adorable. Hey…just like Cotton Stuffing!

  141. Doodie Machetto on

    Meh, I’m not buying your distinction. If anything, you’re saying spacebar guy is a composer and you’re hating on his composition medium of digitally performed music rather than having a band playing his piece.

    For the record, I actually hate EDM, but I wholly respect the effort required to make it.

  142. Doodie Machetto on

    And so you’re saying because Idioteque only samples electronic music that it itself is not electronic music?

    It’s not like he’s sampling a string section or some drums. It’s electronic music.

    Speaking of which, Booby also listed Enter the 36 Chambers, which I agree, is amazing (also agree on Kid A, BTW). But how do you think ALL of the non-sampled beats were created?

  143. Rob in Beantown on

    As a non-musician I don’t really care as much about technical virtuosity that much. I mostly get really excited about catchy hooks and clever lyrics. I’m not a big EDM fan, but I recognize that there are good songs and bad ones. I don’t write off the whole genre because it’s “easy.”

  144. Doodie Machetto on

    This is a wholly electronically performed production of the Overture from the Marriage of Figaro. Now, I’m not saying people who produce EDM are Mozart. Far, FAR from it. But what they produce is the exact same type of production. They compose music that is then reproduced electronically. I happen to dislike their compositions, but I absolutely respect the difficulty in composing.

  145. Doodie, you’re really reaching man and you’re taking my all electronic music sucks thing waaaaaay too *literally*.

  146. Doodie Machetto on

    You both love Bjork, too. Guess that’s not mostly her pressing the spacebar and singing over it.

  147. Doodie Machetto on

    Are you pulling a “I’ve never played the game” card on me? Because I’m a classically trained musician.

  148. Doodie Machetto on

    OK, I need to stop this. I specifically wasn’t getting involved yesterday to avoid this. *MALLARDS FOR PEACE* I’m done talking about music.

  149. Doodie Machetto on

    Speaking of my musicianship, tell your kids not to play a brass instrument. It’s literally the worst choice because it sucks so hard playing it by yourself.

    Which is why I quit 6 years ago. Boredom.

    There are some other instruments that suck to play alone (struggle on, bassoonist), but literally all of the brass ones are on the list.

  150. That’s precisely the absurdity I was going for, Rob.

    *Doodie* stop taking it so *literally*

  151. I guess we should have delineated between Electronically based music production and the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) that was the target of our “electronic music sucks” tirade.

  152. Doodie Machetto on

    I’m not taking anything in any way. I’m done talking about how and why people listen to music and what they define as good music or bad music, and/ more fundamentally music or not music.

  153. Thank you, Doodie…for defending electronic genre.

    Manny and Booby think, if they have a “list”, their crap don’t stink.

  154. I guess we should have delineated between Electronically based music production and the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) that was the target of our “electronic music sucks” tirade..

    Simply this

  155. Doodie Machetto on

    Trumpet primarily, but I could have played pretty much anything with a mouthpiece and valves. I really liked the tuba if and when I had access to one.

    But oh my god it’s so boring playing any of them by yourself. I said I would take a break for a while and maybe I would enjoy it more. One year became two, which became three, then four. Then one of my wife’s much younger cousins started playing trumpet in school and I was like, “oh let me see it” and I tried to play it but my embouchure was gone. I didn’t care enough to get it back, so I gave away the only trumpet I had left and haven’t played since.

  156. Doodie Machetto on

    CCCP, just to be clear, I also think it mostly sucks. I was simply saying that it isn’t easy to create.

    That’s literally the last thing I will say about the quality of music.

    Unless you guys want to talk classical music, then I have no problem discussing that.

  157. Is my electric guitar considered electric music?

    I have to admit it sounds a whole lot better when it’s plugged in :)

  158. Doodie Machetto on

    Anyone else? Russian composers? ilb and CCCP, I’m looking in your direction.

    Ones I’m familiar with: the five, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff, and Shostakovich.

    I know a few random works here and there from Glinka, Glazunov and a couple of others. Any guidance is appreciated.

  159. I guess we should have delineated between Electronically based music production and the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) that was the target of our “electronic music sucks” tirade..


    I did bring that point up yesterday and asked Manny to never stop learning but he simply laughed at me.

  160. Manny do we have enough *junior* band members to start a band?

    If so I get the Bass Guitar!!!

  161. Doodie Machetto on

    I never played the tuba alone. I didn’t own one. I’ve only ever owned trumpets. Even then, I only owned three: my first one, which was a used beginner’s trumpet (can’t even remember the brand), my second one, which was a used TR-200, and my third one, which was a Stradivarius. I kept it for a really, really long time.

  162. Doodie Machetto on

    I put on my pants on just like you, one leg at a time. Except when my pants are on, I make gold records.

  163. If you had to eat one type of cuisine for the rest of your life what cuisine would it be?

  164. Rob in Beantown on

    Mexican, Indian, or Thai, probably. Mexican seems the most diverse of those, which is why I might lean that way.

  165. Rob in Beantown on

    Now that I think of it I’d probably get tired of just easting Mexican. Maybe Thai.

  166. Saying American because it includes everything is unfair. The question has to be more specific to avoid loopholes. If you choose American cuisine you’re talking about:

    Hot Dogs, Beef, Hamburgers, Fries, Roasted Chicken. Things that would be found on a New american menu.

    No loopholes!

  167. One person I asked this question responded: SHRIMP. She said shrimp, in all forms, would be her #1 go to.

  168. Doodie Machetto on

    America is comprised of fifty states. And I want the cuisine from each of those fifty states. So basically, I get all of the food.

  169. Doodie Machetto on

    Sandwiches and sides. I get every culture’s sandwich-type food and traditional side dishes.

    Man, I am crushing this.

  170. Doodie Machetto on

    Feel like Vietnamese today, I’ll go get a Bahn Mi. Greek tomorrow, lamb gryo.

  171. Doodie Machetto on

    It’s not my fault that my thoughts can’t be contained in your labeled boxes of food.

  172. Where do you get your Banh Mi’s from?

    My spot is on Warren and Church. Pretty great for the area. I heard there’s a great one in Battery Park City.

  173. Doodie Machetto on

    Don’t you remember how many Brodeurs I weigh? Nothing can get between me and food.

  174. Doodie Machetto on

    A cart at Hanover square. This one woman makes them to order. I haven’t had them at many places, but hers are the best that I’ve had.

  175. Glad to hear you’re not afraid of eating from NYC carts. People who are afraid to eat from a cart make me very, very depressed.

  176. Doodie Machetto on

    If I am out buying lunch, and I’m not buying a salad, I *only* eat at carts and trucks.

  177. Rob in Beantown on

    Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.

  178. I’d take “fresh food”, Manny. That’s pretty much everything except food that belongs in the garbage can. Totally beat your game.

    (I’m torn between Mexican and French. I’m a big sandwich guy and I imagine I’m inside the rules to toss whatever meats and cheeses I pick on a baguette, right?)

  179. Salad Cart could be a million dollar idea. Especially if you serve a big salad or two regular salads in big bowl

  180. I’ve gotten sick of shrimp before my meal is finished so I can’t imagine a human being picking that as their forever food. Also, gout.

  181. That’s insane. If there’s a meat/fish to eat every day, its chicken just because its bland enough that you can vary it on your own.

    Summary: You are an insane person with an insane idea about shrimp consumption.

  182. Doodie Machetto on

    I disagree with your disagreement. Shrimp, while enjoyable, can get tiring after time.

  183. “Where’s the shrimp cocktail,” wondered Manny, who had been promised a very sophisticated heavy metal album release party.

  184. Mr. Crowley Mr. Charming Mr. Alarming on

    any Russian/Ukranian player problems that we should know about across the league?

  185. Mr. Crowley Mr. Charming Mr. Alarming on

    Rangers LoHud Summer Jam at Pizza 2000 in Harrison?

    I’ll print up the T-shirts…you guys bring the party favors

  186. We will also have to worry about Israeli/Palestinian problems between players throughout the league.


  187. Thanks, Latina. That was an honest mistake that I made that you caught so I think you did some very good work.

  188. Mr. Crowley Mr. Charming Mr. Alarming on

    I’ll eat stromboli for every meal for the rest of my life

  189. Yeah, but pizza. I mean, I’m a pretty adventurous water, but I couldn’t give up pizza and pasta.

  190. I tried to talk a friend into opening a food truck with me named Ravioli Boyz but he passed. Ravioli is underrated in terms of general awesomeness and also potential variety.

  191. Mr. Crowley Mr. Charming Mr. Alarming on

    Substitue hot dogs for Pizza, and you just summed up the Carp episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

  192. Rob in Beantown on

    Come to think of it, pizza is the best. If you have to pick a single best food on earth, how do you not choose pizza?

  193. Doodie Machetto on

    Gravy, if I had genuinely answered Manny’s question without going for a loophole, I would have said Italian.

  194. Rob in Beantown on

    When the Vulcan’s visit earth after Zefram Cochrane’s first flight, I hope they feed them pizza.

  195. Doodie Machetto on

    My three foods I cannot live without are Pizza, Fries, and Steak. I stopped eating pork a few years back (did you know pigs are smarter than dogs?) but when I used to eat it, bacon was #1 and it was four foods I could not live without.

  196. Mr. Crowley Mr. Charming Mr. Alarming on

    does that mean tight white jeans with straight legs, oversized square sunglasses, shaved hair on sides and bad teeth?

  197. Good point. I didn’t even think of it that way. I prefer fish to steak. That’s pretty weak!

  198. Though, I’ve always wondered the first meal I’d eat if I came back from a deserted island, or prison, and I usually come back to bacon cheeseburger with fries.

  199. Mr. Crowley Mr. Charming Mr. Alarming on

    Good ole’ Miley Cyrus – the physical embodiment of the downfall of Western society…at least she has that going for her

  200. _I can actually 100% live without ever having beef again._

    Totally. In terms of food issues that could crop up, I’d far rather have to give up red meat than carbs or dairy. Not even close.

  201. Doodie Machetto on

    I’d give up dairy wayyyyy before I gave up red meat. I don’t really eat much of it now. Outside of pizza and ice cream, I hardly eat it at all.

  202. Doodie Machetto on

    Waffle>Sweet Potato>Curly. Curly fries just usually end up a greasy mess.

    But plain old fries are the best.

  203. Dairy and Carbs are probably my two favorite things. Thus my love of pizza. Or ‘Za as D-Bag frat boys refer to it.

    I read an article that was about how unhealthy we eat and basically pinpointed Fries. They asked “how often would you eat Fries is you had to make them yourself?” Then asked, “how often do you eat them now?”

  204. I cook a lot and I’ve still never made fries. Closest I came was cutting them and soaking them then deciding it wasn’t worth it.

  205. It’s very difficult to do at home. Unless you just purchase Ore Ida but I think that doesn’t count.

  206. Doodie Machetto on

    I did it once. I did the whole double fry thing. I even used a fry thermometer to make sure I did it perfectly. They were amazing. It was almost worth the effort, but it was not worth the cost. I bought a jug of peanut oil just to fry them. After I was done with it, I wasn’t planning on frying anything else, so that was $25 worth of oil down the drain. Not literally down the drain, of course. I bottled the oil and disposed of it properly.

  207. If you really cared about the earth, you could have strained it really well and reused it.

  208. Best fries? Duckfat in Portland, ME. I have no strong feelings about 2nd place.

  209. Or converted your car into bio-diesel and then run your car on that peanut oil for about 600 miles.

  210. Doodie Machetto on

    1) I don’t really care.
    2) I wish I could have used it again because I was out the money. But it was clearly dirtied from frying, and wouldn’t have been good except for frying, and I did not want to fry anything else after that hassle.

  211. Doodie Machetto on

    I just want to be explicitly clear that at no point did I consider the earth when I disposed of my oil.

  212. You could have pan fried like 100 things over the course of time. You hurt yourself and the earth.

  213. You could have saved the oil, reheated it and then thrown hot oil on hippies.

  214. Doodie Machetto on

    But I had no plans to do any such things. I like to cook with olive oil at lower temperatures.

    And I hope the earth cried.

  215. I fried *tater tots* earlier this week and strained the oil for next time. And I hate the earth.

  216. Doodie Machetto on

    Mama says, “alligators are ornary because they got all them teeth but no toothbrush.”

    Interesting footnote, Adam Sandler’s football teammate in that scene with him is D’Angelo Barksdale.

  217. Is there no one left on earth who has not played in a band, eaten french fries and watched movies?

  218. The moment I (arrogantly) start thinking how little I care about someone’s else opinion about food, music or foreign affairs, I immediately remind myself – I’m scrolling The Worst Blog in the internets…
    Have to keep it afloat.

  219. Rob in Beantown on

    I don’t shop at J Crew!

    That’s really interesting though. Massachusetts has stricter laws than any other state about capturing personal and credit card information, due to the TJX information leak a few years ago. I only know because somebody at my work decided I should be the person to draft a personal information security policy for my company. Now it’s a thing that I know about, even though I still don’t know anything about it and basically just copied another company’s policy. But it’s on my resume now.

  220. Remember when chat rooms first started, everyone posted a/s/l (age/sex/location)?

    I am never forget the day I first meet the great Lobachevsky.

    Let no one else’s work evade your eyes,
    sponsored links

    Remember why the good Lord made your eyes,
    So don’t shade your eyes,
    But plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize –
    Only be sure always to call it please ‘research’.

    Stupid sponsored links screwing up my copy and paste and stupid me for not looking at it first.

  224. Mister D, – answering… literally…

    The least fave band – myself, playing simultaneously guitar, foot drums and harmonic (a la pathetic version of Bob Dylan) for demanding surrounding crowd.

  225. Dr. Frankenstein Zimmerman sings to monster: “You’ve got a lot of nerve to call yourself my fiend…”

  226. Judy Collins, after she and a group of friends first heard Bob Dylan at a Village Club: “He’ll never make it with that voice.” True story.

    I was getting in the elevator and the door hit me. I think it was pretty funny for anyone who saw it.
