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…

(Editor’s note: I had to edit some things out of this guest post … not for any particular reason other than I didn’t completely understand where they were going. I normally wouldn’t point out such edits, but you guys familiar with our friend e3 know what I mean.) First, a…

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…

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…

304 NHL awards show tonight; awards contest today

OK, let’s have a little contest. Pick your winner for each of the NHL awards to be presented tonight. I can’t promise any prizes, but I might be able to scare up something. Remember, the voting was done the day after the regular season ended. Playoffs have no bearing. Also…

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…

388 Post-practice interviews

First and foremost, I don’t know what you’ve read or where you read it, but when John Tortorella told the Rangers to get off the ice after a brief up-tempo practice, it was in a very positive tone … he liked the way they went through a quick workout, felt…

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.…

I did get confirmation that Michael Del Zotto’s grandmother passed away during Game 3 on Saturday. So the kid was obviously shaken. Here’s some post-game stuff. John Tortorella: Ryan Callahan: Dan Girardi: Marc Staal:

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…

769 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Devils Game 3. Same lineups … at least same for the Devils … haven’t heard that officially from the Rangers, though there wouldn’t be any changes coming unless there’s some trickery regarding Brandon Dubinsky. Very doubtful, IMO. UPDATE: Steve Eminger is in for Stu Bickel. Fully expect a much better…

173 Rangers-Devils Game 2 in review

Thoughts: 1) I gotta tell you, I’m really torn on the whole sitting Marian Gaborik thing. He was ineffective on the wall, pushed off the puck a couple of times in front, failed to clear and did the unforgiveable flamingo on the game-tying goal, on a team that sacrifices everything…
