202 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not judging anything or anybody after one game. But I agree with Captain Callahan, who said, “we’ve gotta increase out battle level.” It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t where it was last year (or the year before), and with some of the guys they lost — who…

56 Season preview: Five questions

Grittier, or prettier? The Rangers lost some of their grinding personality in Brandon Prust, Brandon Dubinsky and Ruslan Fedotenko, and a big part of their game was battling for every inch of ice. Some of that has been replaced, and Rick Nash will use his big body, too. But this…

132 Redden (and Gomez) could resurrect careers with new buyout rule

One of many reminders: Live Chat Wednesday at noon. Be there. ******************************************* Here’s my notebook from camp today: Two of Glen Sather’s biggest mistakes could be freed from their contracts by Saturday and thus, conceivably, continue their NHL careers. Defenseman Wade Redden, whom Sather signed to a six-year, $39 million…

(Editor’s note: Jim pointed out that there are multiple Jims who post on the blog. The best way to ID him, then, would be that he’s Jim, the Rangers fan from the Toronto area  … and as if to prove it he spelled endeavor with a ‘u’.) In the spirit…

477 Guest blogger: Marfar … a rebuttal

Why You Move Derek Stepan for Rick Nash I have been watching the National Hockey League for over 40 years and even a non-professional like me can identify who may be a special talent and who, despite his youth, and ability to make an occasional “wow” pass, is merely an ordinary player and…

321 To Nash, or not to Nash

So, after a few hours of work, then a few hours of yard work, I settled into my chair to watch golf. God, I love the U.S. Open. Then I finally opened the Sunday papers (yes, kids, those are actually made of paper, and you turn the pages to read…

Thoughts: 1) I am not completely sure what to make of this Game 5, and from the array of comments last night (with more to come today, no doubt) not sure what you guys make of it either. Do you look at the start, which wasn’t as bad, probably, as…

Rangers-Devils Game 5. Ya boys are 1-1 in Game 5s, and have won both series anyway. Expecting some changes for the Rangers tonight. Brandon Prust returns from his suspension, and it looks as if Stu Bickel goes back on defense for Steve Eminger. Whether Brandon Dubinsky (or Mats Zuccarello, or…

297 Prust goes back in; Dubinsky, Zuccarello or Newbury too?

Brandon Dubinsky, Mats Zuccarello and Kris Newbury all skated with the big team at the morning skate, and John Tortorella said that Brandon Prust will return from his suspension and that there could be additional changes to the lineup tonight.
