90 And now back to hockey

Based on the last few posts, you would think that the Rangers are either A) comfortably in control of a playoff spot, or B) well out of reach of a playoff spot, with nothing left relevant to discuss. The reality, we all know is different, and tonight against the Hurricanes…

40 One more…

…courtesy of Mitch Beck, and then we’ll get back to the business of real hockey news. Actor Tim Curry and third line center Matt Cullen. This only shows that if the Rangers don’t make the playoffs, there may be stand-in work available in Hollywood….

65 Separated at birth?

I can’t remember if I made this point back in training camp or not, but is it me, or is Stephen Valiquette a dead ringer for actor Peter Krause of “Six Feet Under” fame? I feel if I don’t bring this stuff up, no one will.

16 All in the name of journalism

Yes, it was a slippery front end of my trip to the practice today, and this is to say nothing of what still awaits. It doesn’t help that the wife has the better snow car today, but that’s just what you do on Valentine’s Day. And they say chivalry is…

15 Weekes on IR; Valiquette up

Not sure this means too much given that Henrik Lundqvist is likely to shoulder the entire load anyway. But at least you’ll see a new face at the end of the bench. More later from practice, where I nearly drove off the road just to get here…

24 A trip behind the scenes at the MSG Training Center

Hey folks. It’s been a while since you heard from me. When not making my superhero turn to swoop in and save Sam from the evil wretches of the golfing universe, “I’m probably doing this.”:http://sixthman.lohudblogs.com The reason I’m checking in this afternoon is because I wrote a story for today’s…

45 We’re getting high tech here…

Thanks to the estimable Peter Abraham, author of a “highly entertaining and ridiculously popular Yankees blog”:http://yankees.lohudblogs.com/ for teaching me how to post a Youtube video directly on to the blog. Since I mentioned our friend Inferno’s highlight video earlier, I figured that will be our inaugural venture, although I should…

44 Off day odds-and-ends

Cleaning out the notebook as the Rangers wish they could just keep playing…. Who is the player wearing No. 81 and what did he do with Marcel Hossa? I’ll take this opportunity now to say I always thought Marian’s younger brother had more upside than he was given credit for…

52 Leaving well enough alone

As opposed to earlier this week, when Tom Renney might have considered bringing Pierre Larouche out of retirement if only for the sake of change, the coach sees no need to make any tweaks tonight against the Capitals. Hence, the coach will field the same lineup as he did in…

38 Strange bedfellows

I think we can all agree that Adam Hall never panned out as a Ranger. Acquired during the summer, Hall wasn’t nearly the contributor as the man he replaced, the pesky Dominic Moore. It’s worth noting now, of course, not only because Hall was shipped off to Minnesota yesterday in…

64 And these guys are in 11th place?

Continuing his fondness for awkward football analogies, Jaromir Jagr compared Ryan Hollweg and Colton Orr’s goals tonight to “when a big fat guy scores a touchdown.” Believe it or not, it was actually kind a compliment. Of course, if it was me who said that, and not one of the…

30 Have skates, will travel

Like I said, things happen fast around here. Not three hours after shipping Adam Hall off to Minnesota, there was already a red and blue bag in the hallway outside the Rangers dressing room with the name Dupuis on it. No, the team’s newest acquisition won’t be in the lineup…

28 Somewhere a village is missing an idiot

That would be me, which should hardly come as a surprise to those of you who know this site well. But after anointing “Jason Krog as Jaromir Jagr’s linemate for the foreseeable future”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070209/SPORTS01/702090423/1046/SPORTS, it now looks like Krog won’t even play tonight against the Lightning. Why the reversal from Tom…

131 Paging the new Kip Miller

If the knock against Tom Renney recently is that the coach hasn’t been willing to mix things up enough, then today might offer a response. As with anything else that happens in practice, there’s no guarantee you’ll see it the next night in the game. But it sounds like the…

45 More fine work by people who are not me

I suggested yesterday that the “Jim Dolan piece in Sports Illustrated”:http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/the_bonus/02/06/price.knicks0212/index.html might be of interest to Rangers fans. Having now chewed over every word, I say it’s a must-read if you’re looking for a better understanding of the Garden and the people who run it. Much of it speaks to…

57 Relevant reading material

I just received my weekly issue of “Sports Illustrated”:http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ and see there’s a lengthy piece about Jim Dolan and the Knicks. At first glance, it doesn’t seem very flattering. Unlike my poor misguided father, I have only a passing interest in the Garden’s other tenant. But seeing how Dolan’s fingerprints…

64 Remember hockey?

If you want to know one of the real disappointments of the Rangers’ current position it’s that with football over and with spring training a few weeks away, hockey has suddenly reappeared on people’s radars. Take a random practice like today at the MSG Training Center, where it wasn’t just…
