538 New look in LaLa land

Here’s a question for you, what happens if Jokinen fits in really well and plays hard and produces offense and develops something special with Gaborik? Then do the Rangers try to re-sign him at what would have to be major bucks? Would that be a major mistake? I’m not counting…

103 It’s done

According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Rangers-Flames trade has been finalized. As reported last night, it’s Jokinen and Prust for Kotalik and Higgins. The thing that kind of fascinates me is this: The Rangers are getting rid of a guy who was a total overpaid bust, and another guy…

644 Day after a win and a near-trade

Nothing new to report on the Flames-Rangers trade, still not done due to complications that arose Sunday. Canadian reports still have the Flames holding up the deal. And there is speculation that the deal stalled upon Calgary’s insistence that Christopher Higgins be in the trade (why wouldn’t the Rangers want…

148 Higgins or Gilroy going to Calgary? (with updates)

According to TSN, the trade of Kotalik to Calgary will bring back Olli Jokinen, but it will include either Christopher Higgins or Matt Gilroy. I think that’s a huge difference, don’t you ? I mean, Higgins has done zilch offensively and is probably not going to be re-signed. Gilroy still…

97 Kotalik’s a goner (updated)

EVENING UPDATE, 7:40 P.M.: Larry Brooks is reporting from Denver that Ales Kotalik has left the team after being told he was going to be traded. No word on what the deal is. Kotalik apparently is done as a Ranger. ——————————- So it’s not bad enough the Rangers are playing…

419 It’s go time!

In the desert, no less. Those of you who always pined to see Petr Prucha play might actually see him play tonight. I’ve been up to my eyeballs in basketballs, and incommunicado all day. But I did just hear something that you probably all know already: That Henrik Lundqvist is…

258 Manny ways to look at this

Back in the late 1990s, the argument that polarized the Rangers’ management more than any other was Manny Malhotra. John Muckler disliked him, Neil Smith loved him. Muckler thought he was a dime-a-dozen player, Smith thought he was a first-line, next-Adam Graves. And I think most of my problems with…

Enough is enough with the entitlement and keeping on giving people ice time. And so the room has to handle it and then the room becomes better, I think. If it doesn’t, then we have the wrong lockerroom. -John Tortorella, Dec. 18, 2009, after a 2-1 loss to the Islanders…

Need to know: Donald Brashear and Erik Christensen get prucha’d, and Ales Kotalik returns after sitting out six, in hopes of sparking a power-play that was 0-for-9 in this three-game losing streak.
