Very Superstitious: A Game in the Life of a Ranger Fan By Jeff Yerger “Mom! Where’s the shrine?” My mother, sitting on her designated chair, senses the panic in my voice and becomes flustered. “What shrine? What are you talking about?” “The Rangers shrine, you know, with the towel and…

413 Are these the 2012-13 New York Rangers?

The Rangers signing Anton Stralman yesterday, and all this cooky talk about Shane Doan wanting four years (I haven’t seen anything substantiating it, but you keep hearing it, and teams like Detroit are dropping out) and Alex “The Invisible Man” Semin landing in Carolina, makes me wonder. Is this it…

166 Rick Nash interview

As I said, had tech difficulties with my piece of garbage Mac laptop. So I’m posting this as I type it. OK? No? Too bad. Rick Nash: “I don’t think it’s all digested just yet. It’s been a bit crazy with everything happening and me coming down here (from Toronto).…

(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…

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…

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…

Why you don’t move Derek Stepan for Rick Nash. By HugeNYRfanfromTx First I want to thank Carp for allowing me the chance to write a guest blog … I’ve been following this blog since Sam Weinman was in charge but Carp has brought this thing to a whole new level…

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…

He allowed four goals on 16 shots Wednesday night, including three on the first five shots. • Marian Gaborik stopped a five-game…

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.…

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,…
