NHL Hockey 2011-2012 Season...here!
Posted: 12/17/2011 8:32:30 PM
cnd iceman, I am wondering which "ancient" Rangers team your talking about... Can't be the one this season since Marty Biron at 34 is the oldest NYR and they only have 5 over 30.. 3 of which are only 31...

Matt Cook No Suspension and Ovechkin is suspended...
Posted: 3/15/2010 9:47:58 PM
What get's me going is when Sean Avery did his rather unique screening of brodeur in the playoffs, the next day there was a rule put in place... Did Avery do anything other than embarass himself, his team and of course, here's the thing... He embarassed the NHL so they took instant action....I am beyond shocked Matt Cooke is still allowed to play hockey this season.... The NHL has become a joke in the way they hand out suspensions...Just another black eye for hockey sad to say.... I do agree with the Ovechkin suspension, BUT, it's so far and away different from what Cooke does and has done MANY times before....In fact, the NHL had no plans to suspend him at all until they found out Campbell was injured.... What about Savard??? Is he not injured and out for the season??? Colin Campbell has lost his mind...

Congratulations to the US Olympic Hockey team on it's victory
Posted: 3/2/2010 9:58:59 AM
You have to congratulate Ryan Miller for being the player of the Olympics (men's hockey of course).... he's the best goalie in the NHL right now and if not for him, I'm not sure the USA would have been in the final.... He played simply awesome....That being said, I am a very proud Canadian.....So happy we won, but couldn't let the win go by without mentioning Miller....

WOW, I am surprised this silly arguement is still going on..... Hilarious.... Nabakov plays for San Jose, Henrik Lundqvist plays for the New York Rangers, Jonas Hiller plays for The Ducks.... Would you really want them playing goal now for Team USA??? I think NOT!!!!! LOL....

Big Pacific.... First of all you play for the country in which you hold a birth certificate/passport....It's an Olympic rule.... For Crosby to play for the USA, he'd have to become an American citizen and give up his CanadiAn citizenship...In fact correct me if I am wrong, but one player held 2 passports and got kicked out I think in the 1998 Olympics.... Daris Karparitis I think it was.... Sidney Crosby is CanadiAn plain and simple and that is the country for which he plays... Phil Kessel plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs and is American.... He plays for team USA.... This has nothing to do with the country in which you are employed, rather the country in which you were born....

That being said, Ryan Miller played out of his mind and Brodeur certainly didn't.... Now it's up to Luongo to take it the rest of the way however long it will be....

GO CANADA GO!!!!!!!!

"And now that we've got a Habs fan in the room, I may as well point this out. Didn't they blow a 5-0 lead against the Rangers last season?"

Actually no, it was the Rangers who blew the 5-0 lead.... 2 seasons ago.... A sickening game for this rangers fan.... LOL

Chicago Blackhawks player arrested over a 20 cent dispute.
Posted: 8/10/2009 10:26:02 AM
This kid is an idiot.... Plain and simple.... 20 cents.... I read today he wore Sabres attire to a Black Hawks event.... This kid isn't all there.... LOL... Oh wait, that probably means he'll be traded to the rangers anytime.... LOL...

RBG, that quote from the Calgary Sun is hilarious.... LOL

I am sooooooooo happy Gomez is gone.... His huge contract seemed all but impossible to unload.... Gainey took it.... LOL.... Thank you.... And getting Chris Higgins and the Habs #1 prospect wasn't bad either....

Most impressed with the rangers signing Gaborik.... At least now he can't score 5 goals in one game on Lundqvist.... LOL....I just hope he can stay healthy.... Also the signing of Kotalik wasn't bad either.... As usual, Sather did overpay.... But whatever...

Go Rangers!!!!

Yup, that is the correct stat.... LOL.... Now torts acted like Avery last night in going after a fan.... Might be either fined or suspended for it.... Or neither.... Who knows.... Rangers weren't in that game from the drop of the puck.... If they don't win in NY Sunday, no way do they win in Washington on Tuesday.... I have a feeling Avery will be back in.... But I thought he'd play last night, so what do I know? LOL...

I agree with most of what you are saying.... BUT Avery does have more hockey talent than the players you mention.... when he just sticks to hockey, he's a highly effective player.... Once he starts his crap than crosses the line, the team suffers.... And he embarasses himself and worse, his teammates... Torts looked like he was going to kill him last night.... Sadly I don't think he's going to get it though.... I think the rangers will just bury him in their AHL team eventually for the rest of his contract...

Lundqvist is the one who has gotten the rangers where they are now.... He's living up to his nickname of the king for sure...

Avery, well he's been lynched all day by the Toronto media... He just continues to bite the hand who feeds him... Sather put his already bad reputation on the line for this guy and this is how he repays him.... It seems he just lacks self control.... And ranger fans on their boards are condoning his behaviour... It's sad.... I guess I can be happy he hasn't cost the team a game or series YET... Shame on him!!!

Well a friend of mine who totally hates Avery said 2 of the calls were bogus.... And the other was questionable... I worked and missed the game... Taped it, but no way was I watching that last night.... LOL.... Torts is already on the record complaining the refs are targeting Avery, so I will just assume last night was more of the same.... Now, if Avery is sat out tommorow night, than my assumption was wrong.... LOL..

What do you make of a player watching the other teams practice during the playoffs??? Isn't that a no no.... What if it was Avery? What would the NHL do to him??? Isn't this spying??? You can learn alot about a team's injuries and more doing this....

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/playoffs/2009/news?id=4083635

And what do you make of 2 players doing a stick salute in the other teams building after beating them?? Again, what if Avery did it???

Just wanting people's thoughts on this since it happened during the rangers/caps game and the player in question is Alex Ovechkin...

Canadiens vs Bruins best rivalry in sports
Posted: 4/21/2009 9:08:45 AM
The rangers/islander rivalry is pretty good.... Well it was better when the isles weren't so happless.... Three times a game at MSG no matter who they are playing, ranger fans still chant "Potvin Sucks".... I got the t shirt.... LOL...Also the rangers/devils has always been good.... Especially last year with the avery/brodeur stuff.... Fun stuff...

Holy Lundqvist Batman..... Not in a million years did I think my rangers would be up 2 games to ziiiiiiiip going back home.... And their awesome at home.... It was their road record that sucked....

And Avery has controlled himself.... The cRaps aren't what everyone thought they were.... AO cherry picks and wouldn't go to his own end on a bet....

CRAZY!!!!!

Sean Avery Suspension!!!
Posted: 3/31/2009 4:44:15 PM
"Since he came back it's like he schooled all the Rangers on playing like scumbags/diving again. The Antropov dive against the Penguins was Oscar-worthy. And Dubinsky's back to playing like a scumbag the way he did in the playoffs last year."

Oh really??? I am a longtime ranger fan and catch their games and the biggest difference I see with Avery is he's brought the energy level up on the entire team.... I certainly never saw what your claiming....

If anything, other players are taking liberties with Avery nightly... And not getting called....

Oddly enough, since Avery has been with the rangers including the first time, he's never cost the team a win... NY seems to be the best fit for him....

I am sure he'll snap too, but for now, he's been quite good... Torts doesn't believe in 2nd chances from what I have heard.... I could tell he's getting sick of talking about Avery after EVERY game... LOL... Avery must know this is his last chance.... If he messes up, Sather will be forced to bury him in Hartford for the duration of his loooooooong contract...

As for Theo Fleury, I love that guy.... Not sure he can still play though.... LOL...

Most important of the night was "The King" Henrik Lundqvist recording his 30th win of the season..... He is the ONLY goaltender in the history of the NHL to record 30 wins in each of their first 4 seasons.... Nice!!!!!

Oh yeah!!! Avery is back..... I never thought I'd see the day.....

I wasn't thrilled when the rumors started awhile back, but I've seen the rangers play and maybe he's once again just what they need.... Torts must have known before signing on as coach he would probably be coming back....Time will tell how this all plays out..... More interested in how Brodeur feels about this..... LOL....

In other hockey news, Kaberle was hurt during the leafs game against the devs... No trade for him!!!!

Sadly I don't even think the Dolan's and Cablevision (NYR owners) even know Sather is still there.....

I am looking forward to seeing what Tortorella can do with this bunch of overpaid misfits.....

Some guy wrote the funniest article ever...... Take a look and have a laugh....

Oh boy, I came close to a stroke...... Reminded me of the game against the habs last year when the rangers blew a 5-0 lead and lost 6-5 in OT...

It's games like that that make me want a new coach..... I am tired of Tom Renney...
