307 Sean, please come back, Sean

Gotta give Sean Avery credit for one thing that is absolutely for certain. He drives traffic on this blog. Holy smokes was this place buzzin’ for an off-day, preseason day, yesterday. Over 9,000 visits, probably the most since the Brad Richards signing, about 700 comments on two threads. Shut the…

505 Bye, bye Avery (again)? (updated)

Regarding Sean Avery … I don’t think he was/is going to play much at all this season if he stayed/stays. Mike Rupp, for one, completely takes away his position in the lineup, and is a much, much better and more versatile player. Mats Zuccarello had a great camp. You could…

19 Rangers-Frolunda in review

(Editor’s note: Anybody interested in doing reviews of the Sunday or Monday games? If so, e-mail me at rcarpini@lohud.com) Another round of cuts coming today for John Tortorella. As I’ve said all along, there really aren’t a lot of spots available for new guys. The Rangers still need to keep…

147 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) From what I’ve seen, this preseason has been disjointed, undisciplined and inconclusive. The Rangers have not played particularly well in any of the three games, and their best players have certainly not stood out for the most part. Maybe that’s just me. 2) As far as Michael Del…

Hockey
107 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Right off the hop, Sean Avery drew a penalty. This is a huge camp and preseason for Avery, assuming he wants to play beyond this season, because his contract’s up and he’s never going to see another contract like the last one. And he might not get any…

Here’s the story. ——————— Here’s one story, from TSN, on the NHL’s research camp and the potential rules changes being eyeballed … though it’s…

122 One dog-days week down

Yep, a hockey fan’s worst month is in its seventh day already. I’m not too thrilled that the summer’s going by so quickly, especially since last winter seemed to last four or five years. On the other hand, we’re getting closer and closer to puck-drop(s). Starting to wonder what kind…

167 Some more reaction to Derek Boogaard’s passing

These player reactions came from the Rangers last night: NEW YORK RANGERS PLAYERS ON THE PASSING OF DEREK BOOGAARD Marian Gaborik: “I found out immediately, like right away…it was late at night here…I couldn’t believe it.  It was weird because I just couldn’t believe it.  It’s really sad, a young…

389 Capitals 4, Rangers 3 (2OT): Game 4 in review

Here’s the bad news. Teams trailing 3-1 have won 23 of 240 series in history (9.6 percent). Here’s the good news: Twenty-one  of those have happened since 1987, including twice last year. And the Capitals did it to the Rangers in 2009, and had it done to them by Montreal…

75 John Tortorella post-practice

Here is my column about Bruce Boudreau’s whining, etc., from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. John Tortorella: I asked him about what Fedotenko means to the team, for the column I’m writing: “He is a guy that, he’s been good. He’s been good in the series. He does all…

41 Tortorella post-practice

John Tortorella: What was better about the power play, other than that it scored? “What was better? Not much. We score a goal. That’s what’s better.” On Dan Girardi’s growth: “When I first came here, I was calling him Joe Girardi, no lie, for a whole meeting. … but he…

254 Rangers 3, Capitals 2: Game 3 in review

I just wonder what we’d all be saying today if the Rangers hadn’t gotten two fluky goals. I’m just saying, sometimes we judge a game and how it’s played only by the score. More to the point, I’m not taking anything away from the way the Rangers played yesterday. I…

151 Capitals 2, Rangers 0: Game 2 in review

Two-nothing and two-nothing. Nothing being the important word. Are the Rangers done? No. Not yet. In the playoffs, what happened yesterday doesn’t matter one lick today, and we saw evidence of that in the first period of Game 2, after the Rangers lost in OT in Game 1. They were,…

475 Capitals 2, Rangers 1 (OT): Game 1 in review

Wow. Pretty good Game 1. I’m sure you weren’t thrilled with the outcome, and sure you weren’t thrilled with the play that decided it. Thoughts: 1) I thought Marc Staal and Dan Girardi had some strong game, with loads of minutes, taking and doling out lots of punishment. Alex Ovechkin…

128 Drury in, Zuccarello in; Avery out

Will have Tortorella quotes, however brief, soon. Chris Drury is back in (he’ll add some juice, the coach said). Mats Zuccarello is in, presumably in case of a shootout. That means Sean Avery — who agitates the heck out of the Devils — is prucha’d. Also, Matt Gilroy is in…

Looking forward before looking back: Do you know the last time all three metropolitan New York teams missed the playoffs in the same year? How about never? Do you remember 1988? That was the year the Rangers shut out Quebec at the Garden (John Vanbiesbrouck doing the honors) on the…
