264 Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day to all! Have a fun and safe holiday. First of all, does anybody know what the heck is up with some of these supposed top teams. I mean, what is Philadelphia doing? And now, what is San Jose thinking with this latest trade, Dany Heatley for Martin…

442 Free agency weekend in review

1) This is mostly about Brad Richards, and though I had a whole bunch of reservations about the contract, and still do, and though I had a whole boatload of concerns about his melon, and still do, there isn’t even a hint of a question that the Rangers are much,…

59 It’s official: Brad Richards a Ranger

A conference call is scheduled for 4 p.m. We will live blog the call with Brad Richards, John Tortorella and Glen Sather. I imagine Richards will go back to No. 19, though he might have to pay off his former Tampa Bay teammate Ruslan Fedotenko to get it. That leaves…

252 July 1: Get the checkbooks out!

The festivities begin at noon. The read I’m getting is that the Rangers are going hard for Brad Richards, but they expect several teams to be involved — maybe even a surprise team or two — and if they whiff on him, they won’t go for another big-ticket guy. They…

259 Another nice moment, courtesy of the Rangers

I’ve told you guys, and most of you know, that the Rangers may only win one Stanley Cup in our lifetimes, or none, in some cases. But that in terms of doing good deeds, they’re perennial champs. Yesterday before the prospects camp scrimmage, they brought out Liam Traynor of Blauvelt,…

64 Tortorella (Part II):

John Tortorella (continued): I said that on breakup day he mentioned the need to upgrade the skill level, and that July 1 is an opportunity to do that without altering the plan of staying with the youth, and asked how crucial tomorrow is. “It’s an important day for us because…

271 Inching closer to July 1

I’ve been holding out on my Pros/Cons on the Brad Richards sweepstakes. I’ve got to tell you, I’m waffling, sort of as I did last year with Ilya Kovalchuk. Got a lot of reasons to go either way. Maybe we can get into it later on today, or tomorrow. Meanwhile,…
