158 Fight night

I find it funny that MSG Network is promoting this show, and I find it funny that, even though we know most of it is unnecessary and silly, we all love hockey fights. Most of us do, anyway. So tonight at 10, MSG Network debuts “Raucous Rangers” … a show…

220 In the car again

I’m on my way to Binghamton/Endicott in the rain, for a game that no doubt will be rained out today and (hopefully) played tomorrow. So I just wanted to let you guys know I won’t be blogging much in the next few days. Although if the game gets postponed, I…

36 I’m late … with an excuse

Sorry for not posting today, but the old man (me) was celebrating his birthday with Mr. Titleist and happy to report that, having played just five holes (in a rained out event) since mid-April, the old man shot a career second-best 80. My brother-in-law suggested that I shot my age.…

91 U-S-A

Just saw this in the TV listings. Tonight at 10 on NHL Network: A Day That Changed the Game: Feb. 22, 1980. CCCP and Kaspar, you might want to cover your eyes. But it should be a good watch. Plus it’s an hour long, so it’s over just in time…

163 More NBC

According to a report in the Toronto Globe and Mail, the NHL and NBC will renew their deal through the 2010 Olympics, which of course are an NBC property. Oh, good. On a lighter note, did you see the story about the South Dakota cowboy who won more than $200…

83 Sid and Mess (updated)

Now there, above, are three words that won’t make you guys very happy. The three finalists for the Mark Messier Leadership award were announced this morning, and one of them is your least favorite player: Sidney Crosby. The other two are Zdeno Chara and Jarome Iginla. Anyway, the Captain will…

123 Winging justice

Before the end of Game 2 last night, I was thinking that all you conspiracy theorists — those who think the NHL will jump through hoops of fire, no matter the cost in order to get Sidney Crosby to lift the Stanley Cup — had a rough night. After all,…

71 Quick turnaround

So I’m watching the third period of Game 1 last night, Detroit up 3-1 with about six minutes left, and Pierre McGuire is surprised that MIke Babcock is giving his fourth line major minutes, and he expresses it to Eddie Olczyk (who is not surprised), and he carries the theme…

69 Feel the draft

So I took Steve Zipay’s advice and skipped over to TSN’s site for its ongoing pre-draft coverage, and its stories about the scouting combine this week. I’m not into the prospects as much as some of you guys — don’t have the time, and still think the draft is an…

73 Coffey break

Paul Coffey was on the commish’s radio show yesterday and it reminded me of yet another one of my dumb stories, as Coffey always does. Not sure if it was the ’83 or ’84 Cup finals at Nassau Coliseum. My softball season had already begun, and in the opener, I…

179 Finally, the finals

I guess the NHL changed its mind on the scheduling and is ready to get the party started sooner than later, which is a good thing for NBC and a good thing for people who, you know, actually care about hockey and don’t want to wait for the championship series.…

239 Is Del Zotto ready? (updated)

Here’s the question that a few have asked recently, and again yesterday and today with the signing of Mike Del Zotto: Where does he stand in the organization? And the feeling I’ve gotten from people inside is that he has a good chance to really be special, and to make…

50 Renney in Edmonton

Four posts in one summer day. Not likely to happen again … Anyway, in case you missed it, Pat Quinn was named Edmonton coach, and Tom Renney will be one of his assistants. I wonder if there’s a future for Craig MacTavish or his assistants — – Charlie Huddy and Bill…

5 Peter Zezel, 44, dies

Sad news from the NHLPA. Peter Zezel — whom I remember as a tremendous competitor when he was with the Flyers, a strong skater, a former soccer player as I recall — has passed away. Here’s the release: FORMER NHL PLAYER PETER ZEZEL PASSES AWAY TORONTO, ON (May 26, 2009) –…
