1952. Not exactly a banner year for the New York Rangers. Through the calendar year, the Blueshirts had more ties than wins. (You do remember ties, don’t you?) Sure, there were a couple of promising young players on the roster. Gump Worsley came up and would go on to win…

135 Some hockey news today

We take a break from the guest bloggers today, because, supposedly, the NHL owners and players are ready to talk again. Gee, maybe they’ll make progress toward avoiding a lockout. And then maybe I’ll make four holes-in-one in a row and hit the lottery twice. Here’s Kevin Allen’s story from…

Hi everyone!  I haven’t posted in a long time, but I read Carp’s stuff every day, no matter what.  I’ve written for Carp before but this time, I wanted to talk about a person who is very controversial, and while talking about him make sure I don’t use any derogatory…

123 Just because …

I was going to skip posting today, you know, just leave yesterday’s here for your discussion, since there’s nothing happening, nothing about to happen, and because the traffic was pretty low yesterday. And also because most of the evening discussion surrounded my piece of cooke laptop. But, then I remembered…

127 Four weeks until the lockout!

Yup. Four weeks from tomorrow. Can’t wait. Yee-freakin-hah! I’m sure you saw last night that the Traverse City prospects tournament was canceled because of the impending, unavoidable work stoppage. Me? After putting up three posts yesterday, I’ve got nothing today. Been really busy with the “other job” this week. In…

94 “Still a wide gap between us and not much time to go”

Those  above are the words of Gary Bettman yesterday, foreboding words indeed. The CBA expires Sept. 15, and it’s almost a certainty IMO that there will be a lockout. How long that lasts is anybody’s guess. I’m taking the liberty of translating the commish’s words yesterday thusly: “Nice try with …

246 The NHLPA takes a different route

Interesting stuff from the NHLPA and Don Fehr yesterday. Not sure if the league’s owners and commissioner think it’s a good idea, or something worth pursuing in bargaining, or if they crumple it and toss it in the bucket. I think if they decide it’s something they can discuss, tweak,…

141 Back to work … briefly

I’m taking a vacation from my vacation starting today, but I’ll be neck deep in work on my “other job” and not so much on hockey. Tomorrow’s going to be kind of an interesting day, with the NHLPA supposedly bringing back its counter-proposal, which I am going to go ahead…

Rayner signed with the Rangers as…

Many refer to being a sportswriter as a dream job.  Generally though, people who make that assumption are tremendous sports fans, usually with loyalties to very specific teams.  And obviously that runs in direct conflict with the principles of journalism, which require the utmost in objectivity.  You can be a…
