155 Guest blogger: eddie eddie eddie

Many of us have our favorite memories of Ranger lore. The Cup run in ’94 obviously ranks as everyone’s favorite.   For me, that two-month stretch was heaven on earth, as I’m sure it was for most Ranger fans. This, however, is not a walk down that lane. Instead, I want…

122 One dog-days week down

Yep, a hockey fan’s worst month is in its seventh day already. I’m not too thrilled that the summer’s going by so quickly, especially since last winter seemed to last four or five years. On the other hand, we’re getting closer and closer to puck-drop(s). Starting to wonder what kind…

190 The good guys and the best guys

The Yankees’ recent homestand was also their annual HOPE Week, a wonderful week in which they do good deeds for people in need, and good for them. It’s a wonderful concept and a noble undertaking. And I am certainly not taking anything away from the Yankees whatsoever, or being disparaging…

320 Islanders in trouble? Arena vote favoring “No”

As I knocked off for the night, the latest Nassau County vote totals weren’t looking good for the Islanders and their proposed new $400 million arena development.

The reports yesterday had Alexei Kovalev going to the KHL for the next two years (click here for the story from NHL.com), probably ending his NHL career. And if so, then there are no players left from the ’94 champions. Hard to believe Kovalev’s 38. Hard to believe it’s been…
