135 The power play is already clicking (Updated)…

Taking advantage of today’s optional skate, young Charlie (age: 3, shoots: left, passes: infrequently) and I spent our morning with our sticks down at the basketball courts playing street hockey as even younger Will (age: 9 months, shoots: undetermined, crawls: everywhere) napped. Once in a while Charlie found it amusing…

77 Plenty of work to be done (Updated)

It wasn’t long — a little more than a half hour, actually — but the fact that the Rangers skated at all today proves they’re not content with their 4-0 start. Actually, strike that. The 4-0 start part is fine. It’s more that the Rangers aren’t thrilled with how they’ve…

27 Not good enough

So your team is 4-0 and coming off back-to-back wins. What are you doing on what was a tentatively-scheduled off day? You’re going back to the rink for practice. I’m not sure if it’s a message Tom Renney is trying to send his team, or if there are specific deficiencies…

181 On Dawes, Valiquette, and others (Updated)

A few thoughts before Game No. 4 of 82: <li>I’m not sure why Nigel Dawes has looked out of synch through the early part of the season. Maybe it didn’t help that his center last night, Lauri Korpikoski, wasn’t particularly sharp, either. But for much of the home opener, Dawes…

108 Live from the Garden…(Updated)

It’s great to be back for an actual game. As I type, I can hear a dry run of the player introductions on the P.A. system. For the record, there’s been no mention of a No. 14… And it doesn’t sound like Michal Rozsival is getting rid of No. 3…

16 And away we go…

So here’s what’s been holding the Rangers back these past few years. All this time they had been holding their morning skates at 11 a.m., but this year they’re moving them up to 10:30. A difference maker, I asked Tom Renney? “Could be,” the coach said with a smirk. If…

94 It’s almost here

After all this waiting, the moment is nearly upon us. I’m talking, of course, about our second video chat tomorrow at 1 (Oh yeah, the Rangers also have their MSG opener tomorrow night, if you care). Anyway, “here’s the link”:http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080924/MOGULUS05/80924005 to follow for the chat, but I’ll invariably post it…

75 Shanny still waiting

One more item: With the Rangers’ glut of forwards and lack of salary cap space, it appears Brendan Shanahan is in free-agent purgatory. His agent, Rick Curran, said “absolutely nothing” had happened with his client today. “Until you see the Rangers have made a move, nothing can happen,” Curran said.

24 Prucha out? You’ll know tomorrow

Hello, Ranger fans, I am back for another season of filling in for our pal Sam, who was scratched from the lineup today. (I think it has something to do with a UNH-sponsored long division seminar but cannot be sure. There were rumors they may cancel the seminar for a…

172 At least this much is certain

While I can’t tell you for sure what’s going to happen with Brendan Shanahan, Petr Prucha, the stock market, or the presidential election, I can tell you the Rangers will be playing their home opener Friday at 7, and I’ll be hosting my second video chat at 1 that day…

201 Shanahan told to be patient (Updated)

So what’s another forward when you already have three sitting out? According to Rick Curran, Brendan Shanahan’s agent, the right wing’s return to New York is still very much a possibility The possible hold up? You guessed it. The Rangers have virtually no money under the salary cap (with $250,000…

75 And so the tinkering begins

Tom Renney hinted yesterday at a need to find a more prominent spot in the lineup for Aaron Voros, and he’s already delivered. The scrappy wing is skating with Brandon Dubinsky and Nikolai Zherdev on the second line, while Nigel Dawes has been bumped down with Lauri Korpikoski and Ryan…

30 The confusion never stops

Every time I feel like I have a handle on the collective bargaining agreement, another wrinkle arises that sends me back scratching my head. And this is again the case when it comes to defenseman Brian Fahey, who yesterday I reported would have to go through recall waivers if he…

174 Only a little rest for the weary (Updated, 2:50 p.m.)

The Rangers are easing their way back into a routine after their triumphant trip to Europe, getting a full day off yesterday before participating in off-ice workouts today. It’s safe to say players and coaches are experiencing varying degrees of jet lag (the team arrived home around 3:30 a.m. Monday,…

62 Back in the game

And speaking of middle-aged men getting back into hockey, here’s “my story in today’s paper”:http://www.lohud.com/article/20081007/SPORTS01/810070412/-1/SPORTS&referrer=NEWSFRONTCAROUSEL about Doug Sulliman, the former Rangers first round draft choice who has taken a job as an assistant coach with Phoenix after 15 years out of the hame. It so happens that the general manager…

85 One more thing about Shanny

Just to put this Brendan Shanahan situation in perspective, I look at it as there are three realistic scenarios: 1. Glen Sather has led Shanahan to believe he does want to re-sign him when he really doesn’t. Many of you have rightly said the least Shanahan deserves is a straight…

78 Could Shanahan again end up a Red Wing? (Updated)

All along we’ve been told that Brendan Shanahan’s top priority has been to return to the Rangers for a third season. But with the Rangers already 2-0, and with Tom Renney already choosing his captain and alternates for the season, the team may now be poised to officially turn the…

139 At the risk of the obvious (Updated)

A second win today in Prague would be significant for a number of reasons, but one is this: Externally at least, just about everyone is expecting the Rangers to endure some sort of hangover effect from their European journey. Should the Rangers capture four points in Prague, it would help…
