351 Summer of Carp off to a roaring start

First the desktop computer breaks down … leaving me to rely on this piece of carcillo Mac laptop all weekend, at least through today. Then, I’m out mowing the lawn Sunday when it starts to rain. But the garage door opener broke, and nobody is home, and I don’t have…

66 Taking a day off … and more

I’m going to be taking a lot of days off the next few weeks leading up to the lockout, er, I mean, training camp. That doesn’t mean I won’t be here or that we’re going to shut down. I will be here and we won’t shut down. I just may…

139 NHL.com’s 30 in 30 begins … well, now it’s 28 in 28

I should have mentioned this earlier, that NHL.com has begun its annual 30 in 30, in which it examines the off-season moves and previews the upcoming season for each team within the span of a month. So far, they’ve done the Eastern Conference champion Devils (that hurts, huh?), and Brandon…

229 Going nowhere, with nowhere to go

It’s officially the dog days now that we’re into August. Of course there’s the NHL-NHLPA saga, which is just beginning and with no end in sight. Here’s some video of the NHLPA’s Mathieu Schneider (former Ranger) meeting the media after yesterday’s session, courtesy of the players union (so take it…

134 Happy August: CBA stuff just getting started

The players say they want to see the financials. The commissioner says the league provided 76,000 pages worth. I’m telling you, this thing is going to take a while, and I certainly appreciate that, this time, I haven’t had to cover this. It’s going to be tedious and lengthy. Kind…

Good morning!   I figured I’d start by introducing myself for those who don’t know me.  I comment from time to time when work and life permit but I visit all of you as a reader at least seven times a day during the season and once or twice a day…

96 Some Monday hockey reading

OK, call me lazy. Instead of writing something for youse to read, I’m going to link to a couple of hockey stories. Actually they’re from yesterday, but I found them pretty interesting. Way, way, way more interesting than the Olympics. On the other hand, I found the LPGA’s Evian Masters…

Very Superstitious: A Game in the Life of a Ranger Fan By Jeff Yerger “Mom! Where’s the shrine?” My mother, sitting on her designated chair, senses the panic in my voice and becomes flustered. “What shrine? What are you talking about?” “The Rangers shrine, you know, with the towel and…

413 Are these the 2012-13 New York Rangers?

The Rangers signing Anton Stralman yesterday, and all this cooky talk about Shane Doan wanting four years (I haven’t seen anything substantiating it, but you keep hearing it, and teams like Detroit are dropping out) and Alex “The Invisible Man” Semin landing in Carolina, makes me wonder. Is this it…

166 Rick Nash interview

As I said, had tech difficulties with my piece of garbage Mac laptop. So I’m posting this as I type it. OK? No? Too bad. Rick Nash: “I don’t think it’s all digested just yet. It’s been a bit crazy with everything happening and me coming down here (from Toronto).…

227 Meeting Mr. Nash

Got some stuff to take care of first, but if my “other job” allows I will make my way over to the informal media meeting with Rick Nash, who is going to be involved in some sort of Rangers benefit thing on ice with kids today. Assuming I get there,…
