26 Another day, another pair of wrinkled pants

When and if I get around to writing my autobiography, that would be on the short list of potential titles. (Another possibility: “What I Lack In Intelligence I Make Up For With Above Average Typing Skills”). Anyway, it’s becoming increasingly clear that my attempts at ironing are not unlike a…

32 Must win?

No, I’m not sure you can say that about any game at this point. However…..take a look at the Eastern Conference after the Devils’ come-from-behind win last night against Montreal, and the Rangers are now squarely outside the playoff picture with 30 points. With that in mind, you don’t want…

30 Immonen up

Jarkko Immonen is up with the Rangers and is currently on the ice for practice. It doesn’t look like anyone was sent down. In other news, the Rangers are testing out the new form-fitting jerseys that will be standard next season. First impression: What was wrong with the old ones?…

14 The Mystery Linemate Returns

One other question that I failed to include from before: *Q: Have you been drinking? — Valeri Kamensky, NHL All-Star 1997-98* A: Granted, the soft-spoken Russian was more tactful than that. But after another outing together tonight, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mystery Linemate’s on the phone with his…

13 On to more pressing matters

If you hadn’t guessed it already, the Rangers are off today since they don’t play again until Thursday. This is part of the reason why any roster changes suggested on Monday might be forgotten three days later (“I never said that. Pock and Kasparaitis? Are you kidding me?”) In the…

14 Questions that deserve answers

I spend a lot of time responding to your questions, comments, and concerns. But I’m hardly complaining. In fact, I feel I’ve become so proficient at this racket I can now even anticipate questions before they’re asked. And with that, I bring you the first installment of “Questions That Haven’t…

69 Team in crisis?

Hardly. I’m not sure what I expected when I showed up at the practice rink this morning, but I figured there would be some overt residual effects from “last night’s dispiriting loss”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061204/SPORTS01/612040343/1046/SPORTS to the Islanders. Players dressed in black. Half the roster shipped to Hartford. Some sort of cruel and…

36 Post-game musings

I’m already back home, having taken advantage of the early start time to get out of the Garden at a decent hour. This just in: Giants lose, Michigan gets jobbed out of the BCS title game, and the Rangers are in something resembling disarray. With that, a few discussion topics:…

27 Straka and Ward in; Callahan gone

So long Ryan Callahan, we hardly knew ye. Maybe it’s for the best that the right wing was shipped to Hartford now that both Jason Ward and Martin Straka will be back in the lineup tonight. Given the pressure cooker that is likely to be Rangers-Islanders, the 21-year-old rookie might…

17 Who is this Potvin guy…

….and why does he inspire so much whistling? I’m kidding, of course. Bear in mind you’re talking to someone who came of age during the heart of the Rangers-Islanders rivalry. Never mind where you were when Kennedy was shot. Where were you when Ken Morrow scored that overtime goal to…

88 Renney: Whatever happens, happens

Judging by the response to my previous post there’s obviously been plenty of debate about the job Tom Renney is doing, particularly in his allocation of ice time for prospects. Much of the criticism has been fair — among the coach’s faults is he’s probably too loyal for his own…

162 Shake-up

You figured it was only a matter of time before there was a crack in Brendan Shanahan’s facade, and sure enough, there was the perennial All-Star at his locker stall today, openly complaining about…..the lack of hangers at Madison Square Garden. Maybe that doesn’t sound like much, but what’s next,…

80 Sam’s off, so you’re stuck w/me again

That’s right, Sam had a reprieve from Rangers practice today, so I’m back in the fold for another day. The rumor is that Sam spent the morning formulating his comeback to my assault against UNH. So here’s what I have to offer, the two words UNH fans hear every time…

103 Post-game musings

A disappointing end to the night, and I’m not even talking about the Rangers losing in overtime. More important, I never even laid eyes on Miss World. Is it possible she was avoiding me? A few thoughts: Adam Hall: you can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him.…

59 Casual Tuesday

We’re not even two months into the schedule and I’ve already committed my first major fashion faux pas of the season, showing up at the Garden tonight in a pair of wrinkled jeans. For someone whose idea of dressing up is a new pair of sneakers, I suppose it was…

24 More on Callahan

As I said before, I’m not sure what can be read into the Rangers calling up Ryan Callahan other than that he’s obviously played well at Hartford — 15 goals and six assists in 21 games — and the Wolf Pack don’t play again until Saturday. As of now, there…
