10 Relax

Part of the reason my employers pay me the exorbitant salary that they do is because of my knack for uncanny insights. For instance: Peter Forsberg is really good. And also: if the Rangers want to win, they need to play better than they did last night. I know, why…

6 Post-game musings

— Not sure if you can panic just yet, but I think I saw the Rangers’ training staff sewing the No. 2 on the back of a jersey after the game. — I know, you’re all sick of Brian Leetch talk. But be honest: isn’t the idea slightly more palatable…

3 Who needs Brian Leetch?

The Rangers have Thomas Pock! The guy scores a goal, carries the puck out of trouble in the defensive end, even mixes it up behind the net. If we’re lucky, maybe he’ll even play the organ in between periods. Seriously, pretty good stuff from a guy who is supposed to…

3 Four Mets at the game:

David Wright, Paul LoDuca, Chris Woodward, and notorious hockey fan Tom Glavine. Maybe Tom Renney can plug them in on the power play, since right now, the Rangers’ unit is awful. For those of you scoring at home, they’ve now gone 10 man-advantages without a goal this season, and I’m…

3 It must be the jacket

Greetings from the Garden, where both Tom Renney and I were subjected to the same security measures as we walked in seconds apart this afternoon. I suppose it’s reassuring that in the eyes of MSG security, there is no difference between a schleppy newspaper reporter and the head coach of…

15 Let’s get ready to rumble?

I realize it sounds pretty silly to be using the word “urgency” when talking about the third game of an 82-game season. It’s October. It’s 75 degrees and sunny outside. Should the Rangers somehow lay an egg this evening, most Rangers fans are still going to get out of bed…

11 Can he make it to the Garden by 7?

Don’t look now, but the Flyers “might be making a play for Brian Leetch”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=180293&hubname, at least according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. In a familiar refrain, Leetch’s agent Jay Grossman said the defenseman hasn’t made up his mind about the season. Maybe Leetch should speed it up a little bit in…

12 This is what it’s come to

When I was 11 years old and I dreamed about one day being a sportswriter (by that age, it was very apparent I’d never make it as a hockey player) I never thought I’d spend so much time asking grown men about the state of their groins. It’s glamorous stuff,…

2 Shanny up close

Well, not really. But I figured you might be interested in this 60-second Q-and-A I did with Brendan Shanahan earlier this week. We’ve done this in the Sunday sports section of The Journal News for several years now, and it’s always been a good way to learn something more about…

0 Off day

Not much to report today as the Rangers rest up for a busy week ahead, with two home games and then a trip to Buffalo on Saturday night. In the meantime, here’s “my story”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061008/SPORTS01/610080350/1034/SPORTS from today’s paper on last night’s theatrics. As I said before, you’ve got to love the…

1 Postgame musings

I have to check, but I’m pretty sure this means you can’t pick on Marcel Hossa for at least a month. Or a week. OK, at least give the guy until Tuesday. Seriously, you have to love the shootout. It’s like Hockey for Dummies. No icing. No power plays. If…

2 Look on the bright side

No one on the Rangers is named T.O. They just showed a brief clip of the maligned ex-Eagles receiver on the video board here, and I think I even saw a 2-year-old boo. Man, by comparison, Jagr should feel like a favorite son. Meanwhile, a sloppy period for the Rangers,…

0 Welcome to the new NHL

Seven penalties called in the first 10 minutes, including four against the Flyers. I’m not sure that’s the way to endear yourself to the crowd on your home opener. Then again, this is Philadelphia. Maybe that’s EXACTLY the way to endear yourself to the home crowd. It’s 1-1 after Peter…

1 Look, I think I see a hockey player

The word from the other Rangers writers was that the three New York area press boxes — at the Garden, Continental Airlines, and the Mausoleum — are three of the best in the NHL. Now I know what they’re talking about. The press box here is so high, I’m pretty…
