520 Do you want Fishsticks, or don’t you?

I think we’ve discussed this before, when the Islanders and Kansas City were mentioned in the same sentences. But now, with an Aug. 1 referendum looming for a new Nassau County arena for the Islanders, I’m just wondering how youse guys feel. I mean, the rivalry sure isn’t what it…

289 So now I guess it’s OK to talk hockey AND golf …

… since former almost-Ranger Joe Sakic made this hole-in-one for a$1 million prize. So, Saturday we’re at the family golf outing. We’re honoring the memory my late uncle who, in the 22 years of our family outing, was the only person to ever get a hole in one. And on…

110 Fore right! I’m off today

Hope nothing major happens with your heroes today, because on the Saturday before the third Sunday every July we have our family golf outing. Ten or 11 foursomes of Carp relatives in one place at one time, God help anybody in the neighborhood. So, like Pauly in the Godfather, you…

305 Anniversary of a bizarre day in Rangers history

Not sure why I always remember this day. July 15, 1994. That was the shocking day that Mike Keenan, on a Toronto TV station, announced he was leaving the Rangers because of a breach in his contract. The Rangers were late with a bonus check, so Keenan, a month and…

50 Breaking news … well, it’s something

Kevin Allen at USA Today is reporting that Rangers’ draft pick JT Miller has changed his mind,  and will play for Plymouth (OHL) instead of college at North Dakota. That could speed up his road to the NHL, IMO. And Steve Zipay at Newsday is reporting that Andreas Thuresson, acquired…

103 Special post for the early birds

Well, not so special. But since I have absolutely nothing I figured I’d better get a morning post up for youse guys anyway. So here it is. Almost literally nothing. Maybe we’ll have something to discuss later. Maybe not. But this is better than not posting, right?

118 Hump day in a slow week

Well, yesterday we debuted our new Twitter widget with the Rangers’ players who tweet. It was pretty popular immediately, and I think it will be wildly so once they start playing hockey again. And I’m sure they will recognize that y’all are on to their tweets because of this site…

387 Hey! Where the heck is The Great One?

I hate to be confrontational or argumentative. Right? But NHL.com did a list of the most exciting players of all time … and somehow Wayne Gretzky wasn’t on it. Nor was Mario Lemieux. Or Jaromir Jagr, who, love him or not, was a thrill a minute when he wanted to…

101 Are the Rangers done signing … or not?

I’m not sure there is anybody, unrestricted, still out there worth the Rangers signing. Other than, you know, their own FAs, like Steve Eminger. Just wondering if any of youse see anybody still available who’d be worth even a little consideration. Here’s the free agent tracker from USA Today, also…

247 My Saturday with Captain Clutch

So this is what I did yesterday. Spent a day at the ballpark and witnessed another remarkable moment, or series of moments, another whole boatload of memories. When I tally up my career, yesterday is going to be one of the top five or six or, certainly, 10 days I’ve…

Got this from a Rangers fan (and fan of this blog) named Gary Finkler.  He has created a blog of sports-related drawings/cartoons called 7th Inning Sketch, and wanted to share this one with us. You can see his blog at 7thInningSketch.com by clicking here. Give him a look.

419 Rangers lead the league … in arbitrations

Don’t read anything into it. Repeat: Do not read anything into this. It’s part of the process. They will all be re-signed. The good thing is that these filings for arbitration A) get rid of the possibility of an offer sheet being tendered and B) open a second window for…
