80 Valiquette clears waivers

He cleared at noon, as expected, and will be assigned to Hartford, with Chad Johnson being called up. Whether this is a permanent thing depends on how Johnson plays as the backup, and how Valiquette plays for the Pack. I don’t know if they’ve necessarily given up on him as…

56 Ocho Cinco day

Whether Steve Valiquette is claimed on waivers or clears waivers at noon, Chad Johnson will be summoned from Hartford to be the new backup goalie. I don’t think Valiquette will be claimed. Johnson has already been assigned No. 29, according to Andrew Gross, who added the goalie will not be…

Also, this from NYR: RANGERS CLAIM ERIK CHRISTENSEN OFF WAIVERS New York, December 2, 2009 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired forward Erik Christensen off waivers…

198 “Get rid of everybody!”

I know it’s to be expected at a place like this, where people really do bleed when the team loses, really suffer with any losing streak. I have come to expect the ultra-negative when the team loses, and I’m probably as negative as anybody, even though I try to keep…

91 Toys for Tots

This, in my opinion, is the best thing the Rangers do every year, with Adam Graves at the steering wheel. If you are in the city tomorrow, try to get there: NEW YORK RANGERS HOST 16TH ANNUAL HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE TO BENEFIT U.S. MARINE CORPS TOYS FOR TOTS PROGRAM Rangers…

166 Sanguinetti back to Hartford

The kid wasn’t awful, but he wasn’t great, either. If Redden’s coming back and Rozsival is going to remain in the lineup (don’t ask me why) then it makes sense for Sanguinetti to go back and play pro minutes and continue to grow. Here’s the release from the NYR: New…

104 Pens 5, Rangers 2 in review

I don’t even know where to begin. Do you? The company line is that the Rangers  played a lot better, that they did a lot of good things. You know what? They did. Much better than the two disasters that preceeded it. Of course, it would have been hard to…

425 Gamer, Penguins-Rangers II

First the news. Sean Avery will play on the No. 1 line with Gaborik and Prospal. Question: What took so long? Enver Lisin will be prucha’d apparently. Donald Brashear on the third line. Question: Why? Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Biggest question: Which line would John Tortorella trust to play man-up…

148 Sid and the Pens, Round 2

Well, at least they won’t be giving away Penguins hats tonight (although they probably would if somebody offered them enough money). To review: The Rangers have one regulation victory and two skills competition victories in their last nine games, and in that one regulation victory they scored seven goals and…

Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke won’t be on the ice tomorrow at the Garden. He was suspended two games for his cheaphot on Artem Anismov Saturday in Pittsburgh. Here’s the official announcement from NHL.com.

168 Another debacle

Good afternoon from the Carrier Dome. Nice game last night, huh? Nice road trip. Nice 3-in-4. Nice back-to-backs. Are these guys not in the kind of condition they claimed to have been in when the season began? Or were they just outclassed? No doubt, the Rangers do not have the…

Hi all. Been busy with football all day in the Carrier Dome. Sorry. Got to turn my focus to Mellon Arena, or the Igloo. So here’s a blank slate for you. Lundqvist is not expected to play tonight, and Brian Boyle might get prucha’d. Here are tonight’s pregame notes. Enjoy.…

Little time for whining about last night, not with the defending champs awaiting in a home-and-home. But … 1) You want positives. OK, the young guys are getting great experience. Del Zotto is even getting more physical every game. Sanguinetti didn’t look out of place. One of the goals was…

226 Gamer, Rangers-Lightning

Never liked those singular names. Ought to be Lightnings. Or Lightning Bolts. Or Lightning Strikes. Or just Bolts. Or whatever. Anyway, here was my checklist for today: Get up, blog, go to office, drive to Syracuse, survive that (despite rain and sleet and some snow), check into hotel before 7:30,…

85 Game day, at Tampa

The Rangers had their Thanksgiving dinner in Tampa. Tonight some of them go for a little revenge for desert. I’m not sure there’s really any motivation for coaches and players returning to play their old teams. But in this case, John Tortorella was fired by the Lightning after winning a…

124 Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been a tough year on a lot of people, but still most of us should count our blessings. I know I’m thankful for something completely out of the blue. My friend Sam Weinman left for greener pastures in January, and I “temporarily” took over this blog. It was a…
