Here’s some very unofficial and inexact scorekeeping on how the Eastern teams have fared through four days of free agency. I know, a lot is going to happen before the lockout, er, I mean, the season. Teams listed in order of 2011-12 finish: 1) Rangers (same, and that’s being optimistic… Read More →
OK, here’s something I don’t get. Today they’re picking up garbage and recycling in my town. I mean, these are guys who are off for pretty much every single holiday all year around, and today, the birthday of our nation, they’re out there lugging stuff? I kinda hope that all… Read More →

The dominoes are ready to start falling whenever JP’s kid Zach and Ryan Suter make their “Decisions” which we all expected yesterday. We do know that the Rangers aren’t even a little bit involved in either of those free agents, who are going to get insane contracts no matter where… Read More →
I don’t know if ya boys are involved in Ryan Suter at all, but they sure are not even a little bit in on Zach Parise, and weren’t even in touch with his camp yesterday. So, I’m thinking that today, after Parise makes his “Decision” on to which team he… Read More →

Here we go. It’s like walking into Leapin’ Larry’s with a fistful of credit cards. Will update all day long. If you think we need a new thread later, just say so. As far as a blog crash … fingers still tightly crossed. I will say this again, just because… Read More →
I suspect the Rangers will be active today, with plenty of cap room to do something very big, or to make a few smaller-scale improvements. The action begins at noon, and NHL Network will present TSN’s always superb coverage. No idea which way it will go, with one sure target… Read More →
Sorry for that snafu today. … don’t know why I’m apologizing since I have no idea what happened or how or why, but I do feel badly. I sure hope that nothing like this happens tomorrow during the swap meet that begins at 12 noon. For those who bailed out,... Read More →
I’m back, back in a New York groove. Spent the last week with the Europansies in a beautiful little country called Ireland. If you’ve never been—and I hadn’t—put it on your list. Now, what did I miss? I see that Martin Biron re-signed for two more years. Good for him…. Read More →
Just in time for all the hullabaloo leading into Sunday’s free agency nuthouse. I still think, unless he’s re-signed with the Devils since I wrote this, that Zach Parise is going to be in play for the Rangers. See youse at some point tonight, and then for sure tomorrow and… Read More →
OK, I promise I’ll be back sometime by Friday evening. Cross my heart. Is J.P. Parise’s kid re-signed by the Devils yet?
I thought maybe we could skip one day without a blank canvas. But, what the heck. You guys might be going nutso by now with the free-agency rumors and speculation. So here. …
I know, this is dull. But at least we don’t shut down completely like the other blogs. See youse in a few days.
Just so youse don’t get worried, I will definitely be back in the chair at blog HQ by the weekend and free agency. Until then, it’s all yours.
Here’s your blank canvas for today’s conversation. Wish I had more time to be here. Back soon.
Here’s your blank canvas. Go to it. Hope there are some trades and things for you to discuss. And please try to remember that these kids selected today aren’t going to be in the lineup, or on your make-believe line combos, for a few years.
It looks like I’m not going to be available to do much blogging the next few days or so … so we’re going to have to count on the twitter widget—————> and your usual discussions to carry the blog through the draft and beyond. I’ll be checking in on the… Read More →
The schedules are out: The 2012-13 NHL schedule. Here is the Rangers’ schedule, via the team’s web site. Ya boys open in L.A. with the ring ceremony and the raising of the Stanley Cup banner, etc., I assume. ******************************************* Official announcement from the NYR: NEW YORK RANGERS 2012-13 REGULAR SEASON… Read More →
The last person in all of the NHL I ever would have expected to drop an F-bomb on national (international, really) television was Henrik Lundqvist. I thought it was funny, because Hank looked legitimately nervous and excited when he let it fly. Too bad, though, that people (like me) will… Read More →
