207 Some stuff from practice

The Rangers should be in the air on their way to Pitt by now. John Tortorella was asked about letting his team watch the Stanley Cup banner ceremony tomorrow (which will delay the start of the game until about 8 p.m.). “Yes we are, because I think that’s the National…

58 Semenov AWOL (updated)

Well, it turns out that the one-year, $600,000 contract Alexei Semenov signed on Wednesday may not have actually been signed. The big defenseman, in on a tryout, was not at practice today and apparently some issue has arisen regarding his contract, and now he’s not sure he is or will…

57 The top 50; and season previews

Happy October. We’ll do some season preview stuff  Thursday and Friday. Maybe you guys want to start out with your predictions for the Patrick Division (I’ll always call it that) standings, or where the Rangers will finish in the East, or who will win the other divisions. I’m heading to…

58 Semenov gets a contract

According to Steve Zipay, it’s believed to be in the $600,000 range. Here’s the release: RANGERS AGREE TO TERMS WITH FREE AGENT DEFENSEMAN ALEXEI SEMENOV New York, September 30, 2009 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with…

119 Avery practices, etc.

First, the news. Sean Avery practiced today, albeit in an orange “no-contact” jersey, and said his knee felt good, although he said he didn’t push it. Avery will push a little harder tomorrow, but isn’t venturing a guess on his availability for Friday’s opener or Saturday’s home opener. He said…

94 Here are half the hundred

We had much discussion Tuesday on the book “100 Ranger Greats” rankings. So I felt the need to give you the whole list (hopefully you’ll still get the book, because there’s a pretty well-written, well-researched story on each of the 100 guys). The list is too long (and I’m too…

256 The Best Ranger(s) ever

Somebody brought up the point last week that Jaromir Jagr may have been the most skilled or most talented player, still in his prime, to ever play for the Rangers. Interesting thought. Not sure if I completely agree or not, but here’s another set of arguments along the same lines.…

189 First day of the post preseason

And just a few quick thoughts: 1) Michael Rozsival was always a solid, unspectacular defenseman with decent puck skills. Last year he seemed to decline. This preseason he’s been far worse. And Dan Girardi is struggling, too. That’s two of the only four defensemen with NHL experience who came to…

63 Rangers send Grachev to Hartford

This surprises me, but the Rangers assigned Evgeny Grachev to Hartford this evening. I guess they figure he’ll be better off playing first-line minutes in the AHL than third or fourth-line minutes in New York, but … think of the slugs who will be playing for the Rangers instead of…

60 Postgame thought

Yes, there were some good things shown by the Rangers in the third period, although I think the recap on the Rangers’ site might have been a tad over-the-top positive. The first two periods were abysmal, and the comeback was nice, but that’s because the Rangers threw caution to the…

207 Aaaahh. Hockey season

I’m just back from vacation, and I wanted to get something up here before the noon game. First I want to thank everybody who guest posted this week, and in the previous cycle in August. The posts were well-thought out, well-written and written with passion. Some were daring. Some were…

My thanks to Carp for allowing me the privilege of posting. In a mere six days, the puck will drop in Pittsburgh, and the games will mean something again. Until then, a few random thoughts, memories, predictions, and musings from one fan’s perspective: • The odds are very long that…

Doobie, Doobie, Dooooo … and some chemistry I figured that was an appropriate title after tonight’s second to last pre-season game against the Caps. I liked what I saw from Dubinsky, period. Hard on the puck, looking for opportunites, finishing all of his checks, and playing and looking a little…

My Pro – Sather Rant I know, I know, that is not a popular concept in Rangerland. I’m not gonna sit here and tell you all that I think that Slats has been a dream GM. But, since we are on the brink of the 2009-2010 season, with the possibility…

Rangers beat the Red Wings Last night, 3-2 at Madison Square Garden. The game marked Marian Gaborik’s first appearance as a Ranger. The Blueshirts looked fantastic in the first period, but listless through the final two. I think we all hope they buck this trend quickly. However, the young crop…
