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…

58 Hello my new (old) friends

The past is present. Or … you can go home again. First I want to say a big “Hello!” to all the Blueshirts diehards, and I also want to tell you all that I will miss Sam as much as you guys do. Maybe more. He is (and always will…

56 That didn’t last

By our calculations, the feel-good vibe around the Rangers lasted roughly 23 hours, covering the time between their fifth win in their last six games, and the start of their third-period face plant last night in Pittsburgh. Players made the case of saying that other than a five-goal third period,…

424 Quiet roll continues (Updated)

There are two choices on snowy days like today: You can either spend hours at the airport in the small hope of actually getting off the ground and making it to  Pittsburgh. Or you can decide long ago — or better yet, have it decided for you — that you…

44 Scott Gomez isn’t such a goofball, after all

For all the heat Scott Gomez takes — some of it certainly deserved — for being inconsistent on the ice and an occasional clown in interviews, the way he spent his All-Star break says something about his aspirations for this season. Because while a bunch of Rangers dispersed for points…

63 Rangers place Fritsche on waivers

The Rangers have confirmed that they placed Dan Fritsche on waivers. It’s unclear whether this is a precautionary move to clear up salary cap space for down the road, or a precursor to something else more imminent. Either way, this is probably an overdue measure for Glen Sather. But as…

99 Rangers goal: home-ice advantage (Updated)

Our crack research staff here at Blog Headquarters — also known as me with a dog-eared media guide — says the Rangers haven’t had home-ice advantage in a playoff series since an opening-round win against the Canadiens in 1996. (First prize to the reader who can guess the team’s top…

82 Valiquette to start against Canes

A couple of quick hits after practice: <li>Stephen Valiquette will start tomorrow against Carolina to give Henrik Lundqvist a chance to rest up for Wednesday’s game in Pittsburgh. Lundqvist said practice wasn’t optional for him today, but the Rangers’ occasional spare practice goalie Chad Killam (a former Manhattanville College) goalie…
