I’m trying to hold my eyes open late Friday/early Saturday watching the MSG encore of Rangers-Devils … and I’m not going to make it through. So no review today. Sorry. Also, I have a busy football Saturday (barring a rainout … please, God, please!) so I may not be able…

107 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Right off the hop, Sean Avery drew a penalty. This is a huge camp and preseason for Avery, assuming he wants to play beyond this season, because his contract’s up and he’s never going to see another contract like the last one. And he might not get any…

100 The first weekend of camp

I’m not sure what to make of it all. First, I appreciate the Rangers being cautious with Marc Staal, especially, but also with Brandon Prust and Michael Sauer and Artem Anisimov. Again, especially Staal. Concussions are the scourge of sports — I’m actually working on a story with former Giants…
