200 Is that all there is? (updated)

I doubt it. This is pure guess and hunch, but I think Glen Sather has a trade brewing somewhere, because his team is incomplete, and because there are still some UFAs out there who could help but aren’t signed yet. No idea if this means a Babchuck or another RFA,…

188 PC or not PC (and Rangers sign Johnson)

And I’m not talking “political correctness” although some of the last thread sure showed that a few people could use a quick lesson in that. I’m talking about my PC at blog headquarters, which is acting up. So I’m putting up this on my laptop as I hit the road…

135 A nothin’ Sunday

There’s not much to talk about, except that the Great One is getting upset. You probably saw the stories yesterday about Gretzky trying to block his personal financial information from being bared in this whole Ugly Coyote mess.

102 We’ll miss ya, Joe

Joe Sakic always played the game with class, and with sure-fire, first-ballot Hall of Fame skill. Yet just about every time I hear his name I think about the 1997 summer, when the Rangers kicked Mark Messier out the door and thought they would steal Little Joe from the Avalanche…

If it’s true that Nik Zherdev’s agent is looking for $4 M or more in arbitration, then he’s done as a Ranger, as Larry Brooks wrote today. Glen Sather will walk away from an award in that neighborhood, making Zherdev an unrestricted free agent, which is obviously the goal here.…

Somebody posted this link last week, on the day the Rangers signed Donald Brashear. Whether you like or dislike (or love or hate) the signing of this arch-enemy, you still might find this story interesting and it may help you, as it did for me, understand some parts of Brashear’s…

152 See, sometimes you agree

I see that Larry Brooks, in his Slap Shots column today, feels similar to the way most of the people here feel about the signing of Donald Brashear. Yet I think that most of you guys will change your minds as soon as he has a couple of fights at…
