Some Random Thoughts: ·        The league needs to implement a “Justin Schultz rule.” Perhaps something like making a draft choice the property of the drafting team for seven years. Anaheim got regally screwed by a loophole where a college player can easily become an unrestricted free agent. Here’s how simple…

371 Rangers’ free agency scoreboard

While we wait on a major move, which will happen, though obviously there’s no rush, here’s the scorecard so far (hope I’m not missing anybody): Lost: Brandon Prust. Ruslan Fedotenko. John Mitchell. Jeff Woywitka. John Scott. Chad Johnson. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault. Added: Arron Asham. Micheal Haley. Taylor Pyatt. Kyle Jean. Retained:…

1037 It’s Go Time! … free agency edition

Here we go. It’s like walking into Leapin’ Larry’s with a fistful of credit cards. Will update all day long. If you think we need a new thread later, just say so. As far as a blog crash … fingers still tightly crossed. I will say this again, just because…

368 Just a few quick thoughts on Game 1

1) How is the Dainius Zubrus elbow any different whatsoever than the Brandon Prust elbow? And does anybody want to bet the NHL won’t even look at it? 2) This was a game ya boys could have won. 3) Ilya Kovalchuk sure wasn’t Mr. Superstar in Game 1, and that…

107 Breakup day interviews: Tortorella

The last file today is with the coach. He spoke for about 20 minutes, touching on a number of topics — even violating his own edict that he wouldn’t discuss individual players. Here it is… John Tortorella: Some highlights… • On future expectations for Chris Kreider: “He’s going to go…

196 Rangers-Devils Game 6 in review

One last time … or at least, one final game review. We’ll have a lot more to discuss, analyze, etc., over the coming days and weeks. Maybe we can do a Live Chat during the coming week and talk it all out. Thoughts: 1) I’m trying to feel your pain,…

413 Rangers-Devils Game 5 in review

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…

985 It’s Go Time!

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. But anybody who’s guessing what those changes might (or might…

233 Rangers-Devils Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) If John Tortorella and Ryan Callahan and company can’t figure out the slow starts and what the coach called “the yips” with the puck, I sure as hell can’t. 2) Too bad for Callahan to have a loss like that on a day when he became a dad.…

812 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Devils Game 4. The Rangers enter the seventh game in these playoffs in which they’ve had a chance to go up by two games in a series … and they have yet to accomplish that. Brandon Prust will serve his one-game suspension for elbowing Anton Volchenkov to death (he didn’t…

… on a rainy Newark afternoon … I figured you needed a new thread by now, after the chat … and realized I hadn’t posted my story from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. So here’s the story: By Rick Carpiniello NEW YORK — Let the gamesmanship begin. The coaches…

119 Brandon Prust will miss Game 4 with a one-game suspension

Brendan Shanahan’s dart hit “1” on the dartboard. I’m not saying Brandon Prust shouldn’t have been suspended, because he did after all elbow Anton Volchenkov in the head (and I wonder if they’ve managed to scrape Volchenkov off the ice yet). I am saying that what Prust did was not…

219 Post-practice interviews

First, Brandon Prust had his hearing with Brendan Shanahan via phone today, said he was able to argue his case for his elbow to the head of Anton Volchenkov, and then went out to join an optional skate, not knowing if he would be suspended. Some gamesmanship going on, too,…

86 Rangers-Devils Game 3 in review

Thoughts: 1) I am going to start off with the Brandon Prust elbow to the head of Anton Volchenkov, only because there’ve been so many such incidents in these playoffs and I want to be consistent, since I’ve pretty much led with all of them throughout. I thought Prust reached…

322 Rangers-Devils Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) Ya boys sure do stick with it, don’t they? And at 0-0 in the lockerroom after being pretty much pinned in the second, they sure must have felt that they would win this game. And then they did. Not surprised. 2) Dan (Block Ness Monster) Girardi had a…

62 Post-practice interviews (updated)

FYI, before I turned on the recorder, Brandon Prust was saying that the teams don’t like each other. And he said it twice. I’ll have a link to transcripts, I think, from the Devils later on. John Tortorella: Henrik Lundqvist: Mike Rupp (former Devil): Brad Richards: Ryan Callahan: Brandon Prust:…
