188 Messier’s back, Prospal’s in

In case you missed these two stories from Larry Brooks in the Post today, Mark Messier has returned to the Rangers organization as an assistant to Glen Sather. The story says that Messier isn’t necessarily Sather’s heir apparent, but, c’mon. Brooks also had the Rangers signing free agent Vinny Prospal…

96 Isn’t he, like, 40?

I was reading about the Olympic roster for Slovakia today and saw that, in addition to Marian Gaborik, the injured Marian Hossa, the NHL veteran Pavol Demitra, and your old favorite Marcel Hossa, there is a familiar name listed. Ziggy Palffy. Remember him? Doesn’t it seem that he played decades…

148 Future Rangers vs. Future Devils

Or, in some cases, maybe past/demoted Rangers vs. past/demoted Devils. Here’s the AP story:     NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils are taking their rivalry to another level.     The Devils announced Thursday that the top minor league teams of the franchises will play two games…

106 Sub-marined (updated)

Remember those awful “Subway” ads MSG virtually placed on the glass and the ice last season? Well, expect more of the same according to the story below, from USA Today. Hey, maybe we can take up a collection here and put a Rangers Report (or Festivus Blog) logo at center…

206 Since you brought it up … (updated)

… and I’m sure some of it was sparked by this MSG/Rangers Web site video shot yesterday when Aaron Voros did a kids clinic at the MSG Training Center … What do you think are the chances this guy is a regular and a contributor this year? I actually think it’s…

155 Zherdev goes to KHL

According to RDS’s brief report, Zherdev is going to play in the KHL, which we all kind of figured since nobody was willing to pay him what he wanted to stay in the NHL. The story is poorly translated into English, so maybe we’re reading it wrong. Maybe not. ———–…

153 Prosecutors to reopen Cherepanov investigation

Here’s the latest, from the Associated Press:  MOSCOW (AP) — Prosecutors will reopen the investigation into the death of New York Rangers draft pick Alexia Cherepanov, who collapsed during a Continental Hockey League game last year in Russia.     The federal prosecutor’s Investigative Committee ruled last month that team doctors…

87 No. 10, the King

AOL sports is doing a top-50 list of NHL players, and this should spark some discussion. King Henrik Lundqvist is No. 10 … as in one of the top 10 players in all of hockey. Can you imagine that?  You guys probably love that Martin Brodeur ranks No. 11. Marian…

98 Fleury and Brad Richards?

Well, the first one is a terribly long shot. Theo Fleury wants to make a comeback. I doubt he could come back to the NHL at all, much less the Rangers, after the way his career ended, at age 41, and with so much time elapsed since he last played…

244 Dr. Van Nostrand?

One another slow August morning, with not much to ponder — I was going to talk about how I think Jeremy Roenick was overrated, better known for saying idiotic stuff than for his actual play, and how he fooled enough people to where he’ll probably get into the Hall of…

177 And it’s only August

I noticed a lot of our Boneheads (term of endearment) are coming out of their summer caves as we get closer to actual hockey. Great to see the old names, although a few are still missing. Do you guys have any new Boneheads you could refer to this place? I…

209 Ban Man in the house

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a few of the buffoons who have run around impersonating our loyal Boneheads have now been banned. This is now the law: Impersonate another reader’s screen name, and you are out like Zherdev. Also, make repeated inappropriate remarks, and you are out like…

156 Avery arrived

Sean Avery showed today to talk to the kids at the Rangers hockey camp in Greenburgh at the Rangers practice facility. I’m including a few audio clips. He talked about how his relationship with coach John Tortorella is coming along and address Colton Orr’s replacement. Here’s what he had to…

As expected: The Rangers have walked away from the arbitration decision and allowed Nik Zherdev to become an unrestricted free agent. ————– Here is the story on the Rangers site. Rangers Walk Away from Zherdev Award Winger becomes an unrestricted free agent  New York Rangers Aug 4, 2009, 11:52 AM…

101 Waiting for official word

Although we pretty much know what’s going to happen with Nik Zherdev by noon today, we wait. Glen Sather and the Rangers will walk away from his $3.9 salary-arbitration award and make him an unrestricted free agent. And unless there is somebody in the NHL a lot nuttier than we…

193 So close…

Jane here. Yes I arrived at the Rangers practice facility full of hope today, but when I arrived I found that Sean Avery had called the Rangers camp director to cancel an appearance for noon. They didn’t have a reason for me, so I started wondering if it was a…

109 Jane and Avery later

Some good news. Or some news. Or some potential news. Sean Avery is at the practice facility doing something with kids today, and Jane McManus is headed over there. So hopefully she will have some actual hockey to report. Or some quasi hockey. Or something. Later. —————- PS, I was…

125 Zherdev’s final 48?

The aribtrator today awarded Nik Zherdev $3.9 million salary for 2009-10. The Rangers have until noon Tuesday to decide to accept the award or walk away and make Zherdev an unrestricted free agent. They could theoretically accept the award and trade him. Either way, it is not likely Zherdev will…
