48 One more day ’til a hockey game

Headed to training camp scrimmages today. Hope to have some stuff for youse later on. Was watching a bit of the Senators and Leaves last night. I’m still flabbergasted that in these new arenas they don’t have a center-ice camera position that isn’t blocked by fans who put their hands…

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…

90 Big news, bad news on Marc Staal?

Marian Gaborik returned Friday afternoon from Slovakia, where he spoke at a memorial for his close friend Pavol Demitra, and others. It’s been an especially difficult off-season for Gaborik, who was very close with Derek Boogaard from their days in Minnesota, and extremely close with Demitra, who perished in a…

194 It’s Go Time!

The  championship game at the Traverse City tournament, tonight at 7 on MSG Network and (I think) NHL Network. Rangers’ pups vs. Buffalo Baby Buffaloes. Only hope that it doesn’t go beyond the 4-on-4 overtime and into those idiotic, cheap, gimmicky tiebreakers. Hope to have a complete review of the…

78 Captain Callahan; alternate Staal … then what?

So word got out last night that the Rangers will name their captains today. Um, I’d bet the old ranch that Ryan Callahan will be named captain. There’s just no way to justify anybody else, right? And Marc Staal was named alternate last year and did absolutely nothing to deserve…

57 The worst day of our lives

I had taken a train into New York City. Then a cab to the Garden. It was, I guess, around 8:30 a.m. I stopped into a Starbucks near the Garden and was standing in a long line when some jackwagon came in hollering and screaming, interspersed with F-bombs, about something…
