91 Best coaches ever?

The Sporting News is rating the top 50 all-time coaches in sports in its latest issue. Not surprisingly, very few are from hockey. Herb Brooks — who coached what is widely recognized as the greatest sports moment of the 20th century — barely made the list at No. 50. The…

152 It’s sooooo slow

I was watching the highlights from the 1997 Stanley Cup finals the other night, and though the Philly Flyers — who handily beat up the beaten-up Rangers in the Eastern final — were swept by Detroit, man, that was a good team. It was old, yeah, and about to break…

45 Happy birthday, A-Rod

There really isn’t much going on with hockey — unless USA Hockey comes up with some big names this afternoon when it announces it new inductees into the US hockey Hall of Fame. So I want to share a thought. I was driving home from an interview last night and…

57 Address the ball

I’m going to skip the Seinfeld trivia today because I was blown away by how many had interest in the Honeymooners. So here’s a clip you must see. No idea if we’ll have any hockey action today, tomorrow, this week, next week, or next month (that’s paraphrasing part of a…

118 Hardly arbitrary

Did you know that 17 players filed for arbitration this summer? Did you also know that, so far, there has only been one case that actually has gone to arbitration (Phoenix’s Dan Winnik), and that eight others have been settled before arbitration? There are still eight others scheduled this week,…

88 Wanna bet?

I was just reading that all of the major sports leagues and the NCAA are attempting block the state of Delaware from legalizing betting on sports. Does anybody else find this somewhat hypocritical, since so many of these sports have ties to Las Vegas and are now putting many of…

68 Morris is gone to B-town

The Boston Bruins are about to sign Derek Morris, according to this report. He’ll do well there. Hard to believe he’s only 30. I don’t know if the Rangers could have afforded him, or if he fit the plans, but he was pretty solid, if unspectacular, in the short time…

67 Scout Herb Hammond dies

Just heard some sad news, and it may not mean much to you, but Herb Hammond passed away after a battle with cancer. Herb was a Rangers scout for a long time, beginning in 1989 with the hiring of Neil Smith. It’s impossible to quantify his contributions, but obviously he…

125 Gaborik’s one up on Hossa

Well, at least Marian Gaborik is healthy at the moment … we think. How’d you like to be Chicago, which had that nightmare glitch by GM Dale Tallon, who didn’t tender his qualifying offers to restricted free agents on time then had to scramble to over-pay them before they became…

I’ve been asked by one of our loyal blogsters here to join him tonight. The Mouth, as you know him, hosts a blog talk radio show — the topic being hockey — at Ranger Crisis. He asked me to be his guest tonight around 9:30 p.m. I believe we will…

27 Still shopping?

Here’s what’s left on the NHL free-agent market, from NHL.com. I am not sure how up-to-date this list is, since Dane Byers is still listed as a free agent and the Rangers announced that they had signed him. And there may be a few more free agents added to the…

58 A column on Capt. Clutch

Arthur Staple of Newsday wrote a column about Chris Drury, and how it will be up to him to deliver coach John Tortorella’s message this season (does the Clutchmobile make deliveries?). Anyway, it’s a good column. You can read it here. ——————– There’s a new poll down the right side…

86 Happy weekend

Not going to have much today, even if there’s big news … which we’re not anticipating. I have a big family reunion/golf outing upstate, so I won’t be anywhere near a computer or a phone or anything. I did want to clear up a few things about Zherdev’s July 31…
