Rangers should get LOU VAIRO for their new coach. (Lou is in the International Hockey Hall of Fame and works for USA hockey). I’m a hockey Mom and my granddaughter has played hockey through her College years.
PS: He’s my cousin.
are u kidding me?
To CJP, regarding your previous column post. I agree with most of what you say, with the exception that I really think this team would have rebelled, not just collapsed, had Torts returned as coach. AV is not much better, but he doesn’t play every game like it’s the seventh game of the Stanley Cup Finals, insisting that players sacrifice their body night after night – for what? For, I say, a questionable gain in regular season points, and quite possible a negative return on the entire lunacy.
I really think all that moronic shot-blocking wears and tears a team down, more than anything else, other than making the goalie look like he is the real deal – when he isn’t giving up goals on soft shots where he is screened.
Enjoy your vacation. I can’t join you on the “fanatic” sidelines right now – doing massive NBA stats which keeps the hockey headlines right up there in plain sight.
Just bet the NBA is giddy about the Rangers decline, at a time when the Knicks are also tanking. Can’t wait to see what tricks their new Commissioner will conjure to further tear down the NHL. The Stern – Bettman connection has been brutal for its success in slyly damaging the NHL, and the attractiveness of the game of professional hockey, itself.
Enjoy your respite and come back, soon.
Is anyone wearing wearing the C tonight
Not going to be a C the rest of the season, Sean. AV said three A’s—Staal, Girardi, Richards—and they’ll figure it out in the summer.
