482 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Even when you’ve been doing this as long as I have, and you’re sitting there writing about what an awful game you’re watching, sometimes you hesitate. I ask myself, is it just because the crowd is dead that it seems awful? Is it just because one team is…

10 Brandon Prust pre-game interview

Prust was asked if he read where John Tortorella said he is just another player in another uniform, and Prust said, “well, he’s just another coach.” He was laughing when he said it. Brandon Prust:

491 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Let’s start with the kid. Or the kids. Please don’t go overboard with this 19-year-old, who isn’t going to score a goal a game, or two a game. But, geez, right off the bat J.T. Miller looks like he belongs, like he has the body and the ability…

784 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Wowzer. I don’t even know where to begin. That was just putrid. I thought there was a stretch there in the second period where the Rangers righted themselves a bit, and then they shot themselves in the skate with the Derek Stepan giveaway for a Sidney Crosby (who…

298 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Thoughts: 1) It is beyond stupid to think this team was going to stink  it up all season. I don’t think they are where they need to be, and they still need to get more from the guys who play on the second line, or who are supposed to play…

447 More review of the 0-2 start

I certainly don’t want to make a big deal about the feisty edge the Rangers might have lost over the off-season. As I said earlier, a few times, I think the Rangers are going to be a little different this year. More speed. More high-end skill. And as much as…

410 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I still think the staged fights are dumb and mostly useless. But to a degree I agree with John Tortorella, that when a guy is in that kind of battle, right in front of your bench, teammates need to take that and run with it, at least a…

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…

89 Post-practice interviews

First some quick stuff: Brad Richards missed a third day in a row with the flu. The Rangers will not work out on the ice tomorrow, instead doing classroom/video meetings, so MSG Network’s training camp special has been pushed back to Thursday. Listen to Torts when he is asked if…

Good morning Rangers fans! Here is a brief introduction about me, which will hopefully put everything I say into some kind of context. Like many of you, I am a diehard Rangers fan, avid reader of Carps’ blog, season ticket holder, and a fan since birth. My first Rangers memory…

139 NHL.com’s 30 in 30 begins … well, now it’s 28 in 28

I should have mentioned this earlier, that NHL.com has begun its annual 30 in 30, in which it examines the off-season moves and previews the upcoming season for each team within the span of a month. So far, they’ve done the Eastern Conference champion Devils (that hurts, huh?), and Brandon…

260 With Rick Nash aboard, does better mean better?

Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH — The Rangers’ big, shiny new toy stood in front of three differently colored No. 61 uniform jerseys Wednesday afternoon and couldn’t stop smiling. Rick Nash is happy to be here, thrilled to be a Ranger…

Houston, We Have a Problem…or not. First and foremost, thank you Carp aka Blogfather for giving me the chance to do yet another summer post. I’ve done posts before about my humble fan beginnings, and the first time I played hockey. Today’s topic will be a little different though, because…

2011-12: The Year In Review It’s hard to believe we’re in the middle of summer already and it’s been almost a full year since we were eagerly looking ahead to the 2011-12 season (my preview, which did predict an ECF berth and loss, can be found at http://rangers.lohudblogs.com/2011/08/22/guest-blogger-afrey94/).  I had…
