345 It’s Go Time! … NHL awards show edition

The show is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Versus, er, OLN, er, NBCSports. Live from Vegas, the money grab of all money grabs … unless somebody in the NHL marketing department thinks there’s an Original Six team out there somewhere. Whyzerman? Well, at least they didn’t hire Drake this time,…

304 NHL awards show tonight; awards contest today

OK, let’s have a little contest. Pick your winner for each of the NHL awards to be presented tonight. I can’t promise any prizes, but I might be able to scare up something. Remember, the voting was done the day after the regular season ended. Playoffs have no bearing. Also…

327 Some mock drafts (to mock)

I don’t put a lot of stock in mock drafts because so much can happen and one team doing the unexpected, or one trade, can upset the whole applecart. Plus it’s a whole lot of guessing. Still, they make for some fun reading, I guess. Here are a couple: One,…

321 To Nash, or not to Nash

So, after a few hours of work, then a few hours of yard work, I settled into my chair to watch golf. God, I love the U.S. Open. Then I finally opened the Sunday papers (yes, kids, those are actually made of paper, and you turn the pages to read…

151 Happy Father’s Day!

That goes for the Rangers’ captain and new father, and also for the Rangers’ goalie and expectant father (and maybe Vezina and/or Hart Trophy winner?). But mostly, it goes to all of you fathers out there, and to your fathers and their fathers. So enjoy the day (final round of…

154 The first weekend of the off-season

No hockey, beautiful weather, and a June weekend. And I’m pretty busy with the “other job” and, when I can, watching some of the national championship of golf. So I’ve got nothing, and well, I guess I’d better get used to saying that, and you’d better get used to reading…

388 Sorry, Zach: But it’s a headline now: “No way” to Rangers

Andrew Gross just tweeted that Zach Parise said there’s “no way” he could see himself signing with the Rangers as a free agent this summer: Andrew Gross ?@AGrossRecord Asked three different times, Devils captain Zach Parise said he can’t see himself playing for Rangers, doesn’t want to consider it.

233 Devils-Kings Game 6 in review

It’s still the best thing in all of sports, the Stanley Cup playoffs, the handshake lines, the presentation of the Stanley Cup. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen the winning captain lift the Cup and then hand it off to teammates, but every one of them…

698 It’s Tee Time! It’s Go (Kings) Time!

Devils-Kings Game 6. So, is this it? Or do the teams (and all those poor saps covering the finals) haul their rear ends across the continent one more time for Game 7 in Newark Wednesday? I’m not predicting anything because I’ve been pretty incredibly incorrect since around Game 4 of…

238 Boy, it really is the off-season …

Well, at least there’s a hockey game tonight, Game 6, on the anniversary of that Game 6 in ’94 and the clowns in Vancouver doing the “1940” chant incorrectly and then partying and rioting in the streets as if they won the Cup. It is also the anniversary of the…

129 Devils-Kings Game 5 in review

Thoughts: 1) I thought some of the Kings took some shortcuts they hadn’t been taking, and dodging hits they’d been absorbing, in Game 5. And Captain America Dustin Brown stunk in Game 5, including that lazy penalty. 2) Milk Carton Clarkson sure scores a lot of goals, or is responsible…

210 It’s Tee Time! It’s Go (Kings) Time!

Devils-Kings Game 5. Another must-win for Newark, with Stanley in the house again. In fact, I don’t believe Stan’s ever been in the Rock. Eighteen years ago tonight, another team up 3-1 in the Stanley Cup finals blew a chance to clinch in Game 5 and had to fly across…

194 Devils-Kings Game 4 in review

Not going to go very long here because, well, I’m losing interest. Thoughts: 1) David (Milk Carton) Clarkson was spotted a few times. Nice play on the GWG by Adam Henrique, who kind of had to make a better shot than the one-foot putt the Rangers gave him at the…
