322 Welcome to Hartford, Sean

 He will clear waivers by noon Eastern time, and will be assigned to Hartford of the AHL, the Rangers’ affiliate, and soon, if not immediately be put on re-entry waivers. That’s when the Rangers will almost surely claim Sean Avery, unless somebody beneath them in the standings does it first.…

370 New lines at practice

First up, some line changes because I know you like the news. Chris Drury-Scott Gomez-Markus Naslund Fredrik Sjostrom-Nigel Dawes-Lauri Korpikoski Ryan Callahan-Brandon Dubinsky-Nikolai Zherdev Colton Orr-Blair Betts-Aaron Voros Dmitri Kalinin worked out on the bike and coach Tom Renney said he practiced briefly but tired out soon. Paul Mara shaved…

492 Fallout: Stars 10, Rangers 2

New York to Dallas and back is a long, long way to go to get it handed to you. Some thoughts after a just God-awful performance. I have an assignment, so this will probably be the only post today. Sorry about that. I imagine once you vent, though, you wouldn’t…

663 Rangers vs. Stars, 8:30 p.m.

You can read all about the Stars from their team web site here (if you like that rah-rah home-team stuff). And for those who don’t like it when I post something not about the Rangers, please skip this. Back to the Rangers. You know where they stand. To repeat, for…

220 UPDATED: “Let’s go boys”

That’s the way backup goalie Steve Valiquette describes the mood in the locker room heading into tonight’s game against Dallas. “Our next three games we’re all pretty much like, let’s go boys, let’s go to work,” Valiquette said. The Rangers are In Dallas, then schlep to the Devils on Monday…

401 Updated: Voros, Gomez and Naslund

Markus Naslund said today after practice that he’d like to see lines with a little more chemistry, and he might get to see how that works as soon as tomorrow night in Dallas. Naslund worked on a line with Scott Gomez and Aaron Voros in today’s practice. That makes the…

99 Quick switch

My bad. I forgot to put this up earlier. Sorry. The Sunday, Feb. 15 game against the Flyers has been switched from a 3 p.m. start to 12:30 p.m. It’s a nationally televised game. Jane’s going to practice today, to see if Renney’s “bag skate” — he took away the…

234 SECOND Update: An introduction

Hey, I’m the mysterious Jane who Carp was mentioning. I guess we’ll all be formally introduced during the chat later today. I just wrapped up my first season with the Jets and if you want to see a little more about me you can check out the Jets Journal. I…

94 Some overnight thoughts:

In case you missed it way down on the comments of the previous post, there was a bit of a rumor … and I don’t know how many heard it at MSG tonight … that Philly was close to signing/trading for Sean Avery. Also somewhere among those comments, I started…

126 Up and Adam

Does anybody remember late summer of 1991 when the whole history of the Rangers began to change? Here’s the most ridiculous thing about all of what went down: Everybody was wringing their hands over whether the Rangers were going to have to give up Troy Mallette or Steven Rice and…

284 Heart of the Rangers

That’s how the Rangers and the Garden are billing this event, which promises to be one of my favorites of all time. Certainly you can discuss anything you want below, and please feel free to continue to argue about the team, its coaches and players, or anything else. It’s your…

328 Let the discussion begin. Yikes!

Thank you for your participation last night and this morning. I feel like a school teacher now. I knew we wouldn’t be able to do a simple YES or NO thing, and that people would stuff the ballot box with fake names … so I’m not going to go through…

272 OK, let’s vote on Tom Renney

So, since you guys have been doing it for months, if not years, let’s talk about Tom Renney. FIRST I’d like to get an idea of what I’m up against here. Do you think it would be possible for you guys to SIMPLY give me a YES or NO response…

45 Boston 1, Rangers 0

Here’s the recap stat sheet from NHL.com. I know nobody wants to hear this, but that wasn’t a bad road game against the best team in the East. And it was typical of the Rangers’ pop-gun offense to get blanked by a minor-league nobody, right? Try to win 2-1, and…

299 Matinee in Beantown

I never liked afternoon NHL games. To me, it often seems, players aren’t totally awake and ready for the battle of an NHL game. These are creatures of habit, and they can’t force themselves to bed early, and their bodies are generally used to rising early for a morning skate,…

247 My buddy Muck

OK, I don’t remember the actual question yesterday, but somebody asked me about my relationship with Muckler … and also somebody accused me of being a bit too cozy with Rangers coaches. So here’s my favorite Muckler story: After I left the beat in 2002, Muck had long been gone…

86 Fighting the good fight

With all the transition going on here yesterday we didn’t get much chance to discuss the disaster at the Igloo the night before … not that it’s worth re-hashing, and obviously you all hashed it as it was happening. But I keep going back to what happened at the opening…

94 And we’re off … already

So many questions so quickly. Wow! Great job, gang. I am still doing my columns at The Journal News and at LoHud.com in addition to this blog and Faceoff with Sam Borden. So I’m busy, and we’re still figuring out the logistics of filling in for Sam … Long story…
