  1. Sorry it took me so long to get to the new post. There are actually 2 different rocks that look like bears and the individual giving directions wasn’t very specific!

  3. A real man subjects himself to the bucket challenge when it takes three large men to hoist the bucket and he is caught unawares, not this dumb kid’s sand bucket nonsense.

  4. Chicago is over the Cap. Richie’s 2 mil probably precluded the signing of the BC kid.

  5. What’s the skinny on the NYI’s name in ’15? Can’t be called the Brooklyn Islanders, can they?

  6. *Lawsuit Has the Potential to Provide a Landmark Ruling for Fantasy Sports*

    In 2012, a little heralded lawsuit, +Langone v. Kaiser & Fan Duel+ , was filed. In this case, the plaintiff is seeking to recover third-party losses from the website Fan Duel in connection with daily fantasy sports contests run on the Fan Duel website. At issue is the legality of daily – or other short term – fantasy sports contests that are played for money, as well as the potential culpability of operators of websites featuring such limited duration fantasy sports contests.

    Certain variations of fantasy sports have been treated as exempt under applicable federal and state laws – in particular, on the federal level, the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (“UIGEA”) created a carve out for games that met certain criteria. Namely, in order to fall within UIGEA’s exception provisions, the fantasy sports games must: (a) have an outcome that reflects the relative knowledge of the participants (but not chance); (b) is determined predominantly by accumulated statistical results of multiple athletes participating in multiple real-world sporting events; and (c) offer prizes that are not influenced by the amount of fees paid by, or the number of, participants.

    Many state laws, including one recently passed in Maryland, follow UIGEA’s lead in setting up the requisite criteria to determine legality. The issue that Langone may decide is whether daily fantasy sports contests involve a sufficient level of skill and knowledge, rather than chance, to satisfy the legal requirements in UIGEA and applicable state laws. While there is a consensus that longer duration fantasy sports games that last for approximately a full season involve such levels of skill and knowledge, no court has directly addressed whether the much shorter in duration daily fantasy sports games meet this test.

    Thus, the outcome in Langone could establish a broad legal standard that could impact a daily fantasy sports industry that boasts nearly $5 Billion in annual revenue. A hearing on a motion to dismiss is set for March 11, 2013. While we remain confident that the defendant will prevail, the outcome of that hearing, and the ultimate decision in this case, will be of utmost interest to all gaming attorneys, fantasy sports lawyers and those interested in fantasy sports law in general.

  8. Wang was unable to convince the powers that be that they should aid him in his having a new erection on the island.

  9. NHL on NBC Sports

    You, the fans, have voted Mark Messier the greatest New York Rangers player of all-time!?#?NHLGreatest?

    Yes or no?

  10. NHL on NBC Sports

    You, the fans, have voted Mark Messier the greatest New York Rangers player of all-time!?#?NHLGreatest?

    Yes or no?

  11. bull dog line on

    to me there is two different categories. best player to put on the Ranger sweater, and best player that was an original Ranger. Messier is probably the best player to put on the sweater, and Leetch the best original Ranger. you could argue Leetch for both.

  12. Agree, Bulldog. Messier is the best Ranger to ever wear the sweater. Leetch is the best “pure” Ranger.

    Gretzky barely counts as a Ranger so…

  13. Ludicrous.

    THE Kreider is obviously the best player to put on the jersey.

    Hayes is a close second.

  14. Leetch & Gilbert are true professionals, neither one of them would say themselves.

    So if THE Captain says its Leetch, would Leetch win :)

  15. my top 10 Rangers that I have seen play.
    1, Leetch, Messier.
    3 Gilbert
    4 Rattelle
    5 Park
    6 Richter
    7 Tkachuk
    8 Greschner
    9 Vickers
    10 Hank.

  16. McDonagh will be on this list very soon. Barry Beck would be on the list except for injuries. as would Zubov had he not been run out of town by Cambell. James Patrick also deserved consideration.

  17. Ranger forwards are tougher to put on a top 10 list. some were not there that long. Espo, Gretzky, Dionne, were all Rangers but not long enough. I chose 1 between Hadfield, Graves, and Vickers. Don Maloney also gets some thought.

  18. It’s a tough debate really. Messier won 5 Stanley cups in Edmonton, 1 in New York.

    The GREAT ONE also wore a Ranger Jersey, but we don’t consider him the best Ranger, even though he is the Greatest Hockey Player in the world.

    Messier is second all time in points next to the Great One, and the ONLY captain to win a Stanley Cup as the Captain of two different teams.

    Leetch’s was drafted a Ranger, won the cup as a Ranger, and was the BEST Ranger Defenseman the Rangers have EVER had. My vote is still Leetch.

    Had Messier won 5 Stanley Cups as a Ranger….. maybe :)

  19. Bulldog – James Patrick played for 10 years for the Rangers, you have to put him in the top 10.

    Patrick – hands down – the best Fighting Sioux player on the Rangers :)

  20. Sioux,
    the greatest true Ranger is between Leetch and Gilbert. Messier did play 10 seasons with the Rangers, so it is not out of line for Ranger fans to consider him an all time Ranger.

  21. Danny Picard ?@DannyPicard · 5m
    Sources tell me Kevin Hayes has signed with the New York Rangers.

  22. I know….. I was a Messier Fan when he was an Oiler.

    I’m fine with that. I just consider him 1/2 an Oiler :)

    If that makes sense.

  23. I hate twitter for this reason. Someone can put it out there, get your hopes up, and it could be just a JOKE!

  24. there is a report of that nature Rob. Danny Picard (Boston Radio) has said Hayes has chosen the Rangers.

  25. @rangersreport

    Reports starting to surface that Kevin Hayes will sign with Rangers today; former Chicago 2010 first-rounder.

  26. Will never forgive/forget how Messier and his ego led the team down the dark path of early 2000’s after his return from Vancouver. Him and Sather’s plan of bringing in their washed-up cronies in hopes of one last run kept the NYR’s in the bottom-feeding part of the league and unfortunately wasted the last years’ of Leetch’s and Richter’s prime. Now, will always be grateful for his HUGE role in ’94 (even though it was Brian Noonan who scored the game-winner in G7)…but that 2nd Tour of duty alone certainly pushes him below Leetch.

  27. Hayesssss.

    Let’s remember its important we sign and get this potential players since we never have draft picks. Hayes haggerty almost got Schultz.

  28. I don’t know who the cronies are either Carp, but they did try win while rebuilding. I think we know that that never works.

  29. Not defending what went on before or after ’97, bull dog … just saying, I don’t believe the problem after 2000 was Messier bringing in his cronies … that all happened before he left for Vancouver.

    Unless, of course, you want to say Messier brought in Sather while he was in Vancouver.

  30. These guys tweeting this are guys who covered Hayes in college and providence writers especially diver

  31. I wonder how many games SATHER promised HAYES to start the season!

    Can’t light the CIGAR tell the ink is dry :)

  32. Trade all your draft picks like rangers do you have to replenish your system somehow. This is there way. Kristo trade bait

  33. Kristo will lead the Pack in scoring, until someone gets hurt. Then he will fill in. It is what it is.

    Kevin Hayes will make a serious run at the CALDER this year. If he gets a solid chance to start with the Rangers. (Which had to be an “under the table” promise)

    So if he starts out like Stepan did….. and scores a HAT trick. I’m thinking he will get 20 more games.
