54 Guest blogger LW3H: Belated Game 5 in review

As someone who predicted a Vancouver series win in five games, I’m looking rather good as the Canucks sit on the verge of clinching the Stanley Cup on home ice after comfortably earning a split in Boston, meaning I get the prestigious hono(u)r of doing the final Rangers Report “Game in…

88 Crack of 1 p.m.

Still got nothing. You guys have already talked to death the Drury buyout. I still think it’s possible they’ll do the same with Wolski. And I am still on the fence on Richards … I don’t think it’s a definite no, but I doubt it will happen. Next week I’m…

“Must win:” We tend to throw that term around pretty frequently in the playoffs.  The “Best-of-7” format really lends itself to the cliché.  Well, the Bruins were in a must-win situation.  Winning 4 straight against the Canucks is as close to impossible as you get.  The Bruins came out of…

You guys surprise me sometimes. Yesterday Larry Brooks wrote that Brandon Dubinsky is seeking $4.5M per for multi-years and that he won’t get it from Glen Sather, and that a comparable player just signed for four years at $4M per. And immediately some of you guys said “bye-bye” to Dubinsky,…
