17 Rangers, Flyers and friends played hockey for a cause

I wasn’t on hand, but here is a story from our Gannett paper the Courier-Post with some video. There is also a photo gallery. They were chanting “Fire Bettman” among other things as the guys filled the arena with more than 10,000 fans, all proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy victims.…

20 Tryptophan hangover

… So I got nothing. Not expecting any major moves in the lockout. Just wanted to put up a new post because, well, it would look pretty stupid to have a Happy Thanksgiving post the day after Thanksgiving. And I think Black Friday is among the most idiotic things in…

56 NHLPA’s latest proposal … and where it’s going

I wouldn’t get too excited about this until the owners react officially … and I doubt very much that they’re going to be dancing over the NHLPA’s proposal today. Is it a big step toward an agreement? By comparison to the previous 65 days or so, yes, it is. Is…

164 NHL, NHLPA big meeting today … or not

I told you a while back that it would have to get really, really dark before there is an agreement. Not sure if we actually reached that point. But last week it appeared that the sides were just going to stay miles apart — especially since the owners don’t want…

53 Fehr doesn’t “see a path to an agreement”

Here is Kevin Allen’s story from USA Today. And it doesn’t sound promising, because it seems to me that the NHL owners/board and Lockout Commissioner want to win every single little piece of this negotiation. They want a rout, not a victory. E.J. Hradek pointed out Sunday that the 1994-95…

“Hey Keeeith…” The voice boomed down through the stands at the Times Union Center in a manner that just about anyone on the ice could probably hear it. Goaltender Keith Kinkaid, a Union College standout and second-year player for the Albany Devils, stared forward stoically as the words showered down…

The NHL’s Unspoken Problem This time of year, it’s easy to forget that NHL hockey isn’t being played. The recently-completed baseball playoffs, college football and onset of a new NBA season all occupy a great deal of media attention. As do the concluding weeks of NASCAR’s race for the cup,…

That is all. Carry on. See you when the electricity comes back. ******************************************* One more thought: They should make Bettman and Fehr stand outside Monday and not let them come inside until there’s a deal.

38 NHL owners to cancel all November games

What does this mean? Nothing, really. Just an attempt to put a little panic on the players’ side. 1) Remember, kids, canceling of all November games doesn’t mean it would be impossible to strike a deal and play games in November. Big difference there. 2) Also, the original schedule is…
