216 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Class of ’11

I’m back from a productive meeting at Centennial Golf Club. USA Hockey today announced the newest members of its Hall of Fame, to be enshrined in the fall. They are: Chris Chelios, Mike Emrick, Ed Snider, Gary Suter and Keith Tkachuk. Chelios was the first hockey player, back in the…

162 Another meeting … gosh darn it

To borrow a term from one of our Boneheads (I apologize, but I can’t remember which one), I’ve got a meeting at Mr. Green’s office today, at one of my favorite meeting places — Centennial Golf Club in Carmel. Our colleague Kevin Allen over at USA Today wrote some pre-pre-pre-season…

147 Bye, bye July

Last day of the month. Tomorrow starts the official Dog Days. OK, maybe not official. I’ve got nothing and maybe we should get used to me saying that, because I think it’s going to be a slow, slow month, at least until we get reasonably close to training camp. My…

332 AK27: Is this the end for Alexei Kovalev in the NHL?

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…

223 The Summer of Carp begins

Hi Kids. We’ve gotten through the playoffs, the draft, the awards, free agency. Not much left (Traverse City) before training camp. Don’t see any major trades coming (have been wrong before). So, starting Monday I’m going to take a bunch of weeks of vacation. I have four weeks coming before…

251 Rangers re-sign Callahan; avoid arbitration (updated)

Ryan Callahan and the Rangers have agreed to a three-year deal. According to Nick Kypreos, the deal is worth $12.825 million, or a $4.275 million aav. The breakdown: $4M in 2011-12; $4M in 2012-13; $4.825M in 2013-14. There is not a no-move or no-trade clause. —————- The cap hit is…

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…

As expected, unrestricted free agent defenseman Steve Eminger has re-signed with the Rangers. The deal is believed to be one year at approximately $800,000. Here is the official announcement from the Rangers: RANGERS AGREE TO TERMS WITH DEFENSEMAN STEVE EMINGER New York, July 25, 2011 – New York Rangers President…

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…

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…
