140 Don’t Mess with the Captain

I was reading some speculation yesterday that, if Captain Callahan gets to arbitration and ends up with a one-year award, he may not get the captaincy. And, well, that just doesn’t make any sense to me. The guy is the captain of the Rangers. It’s his team. The team takes…

404 Need a hockey fix on July 26?

MSG Network has some hockey tonight. An all-new episode of “MSG Countdown,” MSG ranks Mike Richter’s 10 Greatest Moments, including his sprawling save against Gretzky in ’90 and the barehanded save against the Devils in ’97. The tip I got didn’t mention a certain Mr. Bure, but I imagine he…

40 Rangers and Drew Doughty? Not happening. Here’s why

Kevin Allen wrote this column for USA Today about restricted free agents and offer sheets. He talks about the few offer sheets in recent history, and why they’ve succeeded, why (mostly) they’ve failed, and why nobody does it. Interesting read. ————————- This will (probably) be my last plea for youse…

109 Bye, bye, Vinny Prospal; Hello Mikhail Pashnin

Good guy, very good player, fun to watch. Vinny Prospal wasn’t coming back to the Rangers, most likely, because his knees are shot, and because the Rangers have too many forwards who need the minutes. So Prospal — who played golf with my dad a few weeks ago — went…

196 No word on Captain Callahan

I could be wrong, but Ryan Callahan’s contract will probably get done closer to Thursday (the arbitration date) so don’t hold your breath this weekend. ———————- We touched on it yesterday, but in case you haven’t seen it, the new Winnipeg Jets unveiled their new logos. I think they’re pretty…

456 Ryan Callahan, you are on the clock

Here is the story by USA Today’s Kevin Allen and Mike Brehm about Brandon Dubinsky’s signing yesterday. In it, they quote Ryan Callahan’s agent, Steve Bartlett, on where the negotiations stand. I personally think Capt. Callahan will be signed before he gets to arbitration next Thursday, and that he will…

32 Horrible story unfolding around Aaron Boogaard

We were too tied up in all the Brandon Dubinsky/Ryan Callahan arbitration/free agency stuff Thursday to pay much attention to the heart-breaking story coming out of the Twin Cities. Aaron Boogaard, the brother of Derek, has been arrested for alleged drug possession in connection with the investigation into Derek’s death…

137 Dubinsky locked up for four years, $16.8M

God, I love that Twitter widget over there ——> On a day when there’s news, it really does its job. So Brandon Dubinsky and the Rangers avoided arbitration at the last second, and you know what? The deal is the right one for everybody. If it took a little longer…

198 Big Day for Brandon Dubinsky

So today, Brandon Dubinsky goes to arbitration … barring a last minute settlement on a new contract. The educated guess is he gets around $4M per for one or two years (the Rangers choice, from my understanding) from the arbitration award. And that he either goes through something like this…

405 You wanna talk hockey?

Some interesting discussion yesterday. The Devils hired another DeBoering coach. Chris Osgood hung ’em up. Steven Stamkos re-upped for five years in Tampa Bay (what a surprise, no offer sheets). Here we talked about Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan, too, and their arbitration dates and contract discussions. We talked a…

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…
