118 First day of training camp … not happening

OK, time to get away from the hilarity of LW3H’s acronym mania. Today is the first day of Rangers training camp, which of course won’t happen, and thus is the first actual day of Rangers being locked out. Here’s the unedited version of my column from The Journal News and…

How I became a Ranger fan. OK, this might be geared more about myself and won’t really get the hockey juices flowing much but I find it interesting reading about fellow Boneheads and their experiences with the NY Rangers, so here is mine. I grew up — OK I never…

218 Thank you fans!

Remember when the last lockout ended and the NHL painted “Thank you fans!” on both ends of the ice in every league arena? Well, today they might as well do it again, only this time replace “Thank” with another word ending in the letter “k” as we begin the third…

By Marfar (David Hes) Having written on this blog before a couple of times, the topic was hockey, more specifically, the numerous thrills and occasional disappointments the Rangers provided for us last season. Also included in my musings was how our favorite hockey team could improve for the 2012-13 season.…

For those of you who are a little older, I wonder if your experience with sports heroes is the same as mine:  the players who I watched when I was a child still stand today in my mind as giants of the game, even if they never won a championship.…

Dear Commissioner Bettman, I am just a fan.  I love the sport of hockey more than any other and I am writing this letter to provide you one fan’s perspective on the pending expiration of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. I was born in 1981, into a family in which my…

The Rangers First American Goaltender By George E. Grimm Pop Quiz time: Quick, who was the Rangers’ first American born goaltender? Fans of a certain age might guess 1960 Olympian Jack McCartan. That would be a good guess but it would also be wrong. McCartan played his first game as…

My Greatest Goalie Coach By Patrick Hoffman I didn’t learn how to stop a breakaway as a goaltender from the usual suspects. Was it from a goalie coach? No. Was it from summer hockey camps? Nope. Did my dad give me advice on the position? No way. I learned how to…

218 Are you ready for some football?

… Because, God knows, there isn’t going to be any hockey any time soon. You may have seen reports (I think it was Tim Pannacio in Philly) that Gary Bettman will address the Board of Governors Sept. 13 to get full approval to lock out the players on Sept. 15.…

85 Happy September … lockout in two weeks

Told ya, they won’t/can’t get anything done until the deadline passes, and probably not until the players start missing paychecks and the owners start missing home games. So, yeah, forget about training camps and preseasons starting on time. Ain’t happening. Here is TSN’s coverage. Here is USA Today’s coverage.

82 Honestly, it’s like a game of checkers

You move, I move, you move, I move … only the NHLPA didn’t take its collective finger off the checker Thursday. Instead, the players huddled to discuss the latest non-developments and, we think, to come to the table with a counter-proposal or some sort of move today. Interestingly, and black-humorously,…

113 As Sept. 15 gets closer …

See. All that optimism Tuesday, and all the rhetoric that always accompanies proposals and counter proposals, kind of fell apart Wednesday, didn’t it? More counters expected today. And, as I’ve said, I don’t expect any serious closing of the chasm until the deadline arrives. Or passes. Here’s Kevin Allen’s story…

194 CBA progress? We’ll see

Gary Bettman called the NHL’s latest offer “a significant, meaningful step.” But that’s before we heard what the PA thinks about it. Because the PA could come back today, or soon, and say it’s not close. Or they could counter. Here’s the thing. Don’t get too excited until we hear…
