78 Never forget

I was going to go off on a big rant about Sept. 11, but I decided to keep it simple and brief because we’re back into hockey now, and so I don’t want to go too far off topic. But to me, Sept. 11 and the Rangers are forever connected,…

And Shana Tova to all who celebrate the new year 5771 (hope I spelled that right). ———————————- Well, it looks like the typical internet wildfire, everybody jumping the gun that Marc Staal’s signing is imminent.

Let me first thank Carp for the opportunity to do a guest blog.  This is my second time (the first was a belated thank you letter to Jaromir Jagr) and it’s tough to follow all the recently great and well-written entries.  Consider the posts before me like a bunch of…

Happy, because September means hockey … pre-training camp, training camp, preseason. And, 39 days until Opening Night. 39: The Dominator.

191 Higgins to Italy?

A story made the rounds yesterday that Chris Higgins had signed to play in Italy next season. But I figured out it wasn’t THE Chris Higgins, because THE CH goes by Christopher … and because the story was accompanied by a photo of him celebrating a goal … and we…

In keeping with Carp’s countdown theme, we have 42 days to opening night.  With apologies to Mariano Rivera and the five Rangers who wore it (Artem Anisimov, Paul Fenton, Dave Marcinyshyn, Greg Moore and John Tripp), the most famous #42 belongs to Jackie Robinson. Hockey fans know that Willie O’Ree…

The League That Ate Itself As a huge hockey fan, July 1 is an oasis. Hockey hype in the middle of baseball season. Cool thoughts on a hot day. In the past, especially for NYR fans, it has been a very important day. Since the days of Neil Smith, the…

133 Third jersey = your wallet

I’m not going to go on and on about a topic that was discussed yesterday: That the Rangers will trot out another “third jersey” which would make this one their sixth or seventh or eighth jersey, actually. I’ve lost count. If it’s going to be a throwback, that’s fine and…
