223 My notebook from today

Didn’t write a story today, and since we’re still wrestling with this audio thing, here’s the notebook I put together after practice: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – As the Rangers’ only unsigned player, and as a restricted free agent, defenseman Michael Del Zotto’s leverage is limited. And it’s probably going…

174 Jeremy Jacobs/Board of Governors statement

This may fall into the department of “give us a break.” From the NHL: STATEMENT FROM JEREMY JACOBS, OWNER OF THE BOSTON BRUINS AND          CHAIRMAN OF THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE BOARD OF GOVERNORS NEW YORK (January 9, 2013) — Jeremy Jacobs, owner of the Boston Bruins and Chairman of…

38 Ryan Callahan interview

Fingers crossed, I think this Ryan Callahan interview, albeit brief, might work. Still having major tech problems with audio, though and this one might work sometimes and not work other times. callahan010813

112 Rangers go back to work, get set for short season

Here’s my story from The Journal News and Lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers hit the ice Monday – well, 15 of them did – and though they’d skated in groups throughout periods of the NHL owners’ lockout, this was different. “It was great,” new Rangers power winger…

62 Rangers’ first unofficial skate of the post-lockout

Sorry again for the tech problems with the audio. I’m supposed to be getting a new, improved (how could it be worse than this p.o.c. Mac?) laptop for the season so this won’t continually happen. To review, 15 players skated today, including: Ryan Callahan, Brad Richards, Marc Staal, Ryan McDonagh,…

125 That was fun … let’s do this again in 2020

When the 1994-95 lockout ended, Nick Kypreos traveled with Glenn Healy from Toronto to New York. When asked by a customs agent if they had anything to declare, Kypreos said, “No, the owners took it all.” And so it is with every lockout under the Lockout Commissioner. The owners win.…

469 The lockout is over! Start the (shortened) season

While you (and I) were sleeping: By Ira Podell The Associated Press NEW YORK — The NHL and the players’ association reached a tentative agreement early Sunday to end a nearly four-month-old lockout that threatened to wipe out what was left of an already abbreviated season. A marathon negotiating session…

193 “It’s a sad day for hockey, my friends”

See that quote up there? That’s not about this lockout, or the last lockout, or the lockout before that. It’s from the 1992 players strike (which occurred in the final weeks of the regular season). John A. Ziegler (left), the small-minded president of the NHL at the time — more…

20 New Year’s Eve, and still no deal

First and most importantly, please be safe tonight. Don’t drink and drive, or even dream of it. Take a cab. Use a designated driver. Crawl. Whatever it takes. But don’t get behind the wheel if you’ve been drinking. DO NOT. The NHL-NHLPA meetings in NYC ended early this evening. Apparently…

110 Are you ready for some … disappointment?

As key people from the NHL and the NHLPA meet on a lovely, snow-covered winter day in Manhattan amid so much enthusiasm of the league’s latest proposal, here’s a warning: Don’t get your hopes too high. The latest proposal was a very strong step by the ownership group (and it…

20 A new offer by the NHL … does this mean progress?

Well, it’s better than no offer and no movement and no discussion. I think this is a sign that both sides know that the drop-dead date is coming, and the Jan. 2 NHLPA decertification date is out there (though my understanding is that they could decertify later). Lots of info…

117 Boxing Day and still no hockey …

… except the World Juniors (Yaaawwwwwnnnnn). No bargaining sessions scheduled, which means we’re — as predicted — headed to a drop-dead date sometime in January, and then it will be a game of chicken played by clowns who care much more about money than about their game or its fans.…
