For those of you who are a little older, I wonder if your experience with sports heroes is the same as mine:  the players who I watched when I was a child still stand today in my mind as giants of the game, even if they never won a championship.…

Dear Commissioner Bettman, I am just a fan.  I love the sport of hockey more than any other and I am writing this letter to provide you one fan’s perspective on the pending expiration of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. I was born in 1981, into a family in which my…

The Rangers First American Goaltender By George E. Grimm Pop Quiz time: Quick, who was the Rangers’ first American born goaltender? Fans of a certain age might guess 1960 Olympian Jack McCartan. That would be a good guess but it would also be wrong. McCartan played his first game as…

My Greatest Goalie Coach By Patrick Hoffman I didn’t learn how to stop a breakaway as a goaltender from the usual suspects. Was it from a goalie coach? No. Was it from summer hockey camps? Nope. Did my dad give me advice on the position? No way. I learned how to…

218 Are you ready for some football?

… Because, God knows, there isn’t going to be any hockey any time soon. You may have seen reports (I think it was Tim Pannacio in Philly) that Gary Bettman will address the Board of Governors Sept. 13 to get full approval to lock out the players on Sept. 15.…

“Regular fans need not apply” By Rob Canone As I prepared to sit down and finally write my contribution to this blog, I stared at the screen for a long time.  Being a life-long Ranger fan whose life, at some point each day, touches this team and city it was…

73 Any more guest bloggers out there?

I’m going back on vacation Monday, and will be officially back right around the time the lockout starts. But I will be around the whole time, on here with youse on a daily basis. I still have a couple of guest blogs in the hopper, but if anybody out there…

85 Happy September … lockout in two weeks

Told ya, they won’t/can’t get anything done until the deadline passes, and probably not until the players start missing paychecks and the owners start missing home games. So, yeah, forget about training camps and preseasons starting on time. Ain’t happening. Here is TSN’s coverage. Here is USA Today’s coverage.

82 Honestly, it’s like a game of checkers

You move, I move, you move, I move … only the NHLPA didn’t take its collective finger off the checker Thursday. Instead, the players huddled to discuss the latest non-developments and, we think, to come to the table with a counter-proposal or some sort of move today. Interestingly, and black-humorously,…

113 As Sept. 15 gets closer …

See. All that optimism Tuesday, and all the rhetoric that always accompanies proposals and counter proposals, kind of fell apart Wednesday, didn’t it? More counters expected today. And, as I’ve said, I don’t expect any serious closing of the chasm until the deadline arrives. Or passes. Here’s Kevin Allen’s story…

194 CBA progress? We’ll see

Gary Bettman called the NHL’s latest offer “a significant, meaningful step.” But that’s before we heard what the PA thinks about it. Because the PA could come back today, or soon, and say it’s not close. Or they could counter. Here’s the thing. Don’t get too excited until we hear…

110 Go ahead and tip one

Just thought you might get a kick out of this photo. I did. You know, since there isn’t much else to discuss today … except that Chris Kreider will be among the NHL rookies meeting the media and the paparazzi outside of Toronto today at an event for their respective…

185 Happy weekend … wish I had more to add

As you’ve noticed, the lack of work by me (vacation), lack of news around the Rangers, and lack of progress in the CBA (cough, cough) negotiations have resulted in a lack of new posts. So here’s one, the easy way. Nothing to say, nothing to add, nothing to do ……

1952. Not exactly a banner year for the New York Rangers. Through the calendar year, the Blueshirts had more ties than wins. (You do remember ties, don’t you?) Sure, there were a couple of promising young players on the roster. Gump Worsley came up and would go on to win…

135 Some hockey news today

We take a break from the guest bloggers today, because, supposedly, the NHL owners and players are ready to talk again. Gee, maybe they’ll make progress toward avoiding a lockout. And then maybe I’ll make four holes-in-one in a row and hit the lottery twice. Here’s Kevin Allen’s story from…

Hi everyone!  I haven’t posted in a long time, but I read Carp’s stuff every day, no matter what.  I’ve written for Carp before but this time, I wanted to talk about a person who is very controversial, and while talking about him make sure I don’t use any derogatory…

I was going to skip posting today, you know, just leave yesterday’s here for your discussion, since there’s nothing happening, nothing about to happen, and because the traffic was pretty low yesterday.
