15 Post-practice quotes

Sorry. I’ve been experimenting with putting audio up on the blog the way Sam and Jane used to do it, but ran into a little snag. So hope to get it worked out by Saturday’s game on Long Island … or by the home opener. Anyway, back to transcribing the…

218 The boys are back in town

The Rangers are home from their European vacation, two losses, two points in hand, and undefeated. They now get an obviously much-needed five days of practice before going to (ugh) Nassau Coliseum Saturday, then to Western Canada. They have to find a left winger for that No. 1 line (if…

181 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Yay! Skills competition. Pretty serious lack of skills in this one. Brad Richards lost the puck at center ice, and the winning goal was a complete whiff. 2) The Rangers shouldn’t fight the opponent’s goons unless it’s absolutely necessary. So far they have had two staged fights, and…

Game 2 of 82. End of the European vacation. Erik Christensen is de-prucha’d and goes in for Wojtek Wolski (groin). Otherwise the lineup is the same as Game 1.

52 Rangers-Kings in review

We’re underway. Ya boys got a point on the road, blew a lead, caused way-too-early panic, took too many penalties. In other words, situation normal. Quick turnaround with a 1 p.m. road game today vs. the future Stanley Cup runnerup Mighty Ducks in Stockholm. Thoughts: 1) Time of possession in…

642 It’s Go Time!

Opening Day! That off-season only felt like a couple of years. Will add lineup info as we get it. The guess is that Erik Christensen will be prucha’d. Not sure where Wojtek Wolski plays, or Tim Erixon, for that matter, even with his parents at the game. The King of…

Renovation. Transportation. Visitation. Commercialization. … Ball of Confusion. That’s what the Rangers’ season is destined to be. (Apologies to the Temptations). The 2011-12 season is going to be a challenge, for sure, for a Rangers team looking to jump out of that perennial 7-8-9 seed dogfight in the East, a…

41 Rangers preview Part II: Position by position

Forwards The look all changed when Brad Richards signed for $60 million over nine, years. Throw a legit No. 1 center onto any roster and it trickles down mightily. Now the Rangers have an elite playmaking center to play with Marian Gaborik, who had a terrible second season (22 goals,…

64 Rangers preview Part I: Keys to the season

Keys to the Rangers season 1) Marian Gaborik. He has one of the top playmaking centers in the NHL now, with Brad Richards. The Rangers must get around 40 goals, or more, from Gaborik, who would also then make a previously pathetic power play go if he’s back on his…
