Dave Righetti's no-no on 7/4/83, the summer after my HS graduation. Me and 3 buddies with my girlfriend's dad's season tix, front row mezzanine right over 3B. Incredible day.
Also, in a hotel room in Providence RI for a hockey tourney during the Miracle game. The place went nuts!

@TheWrage @Cup4NYR Brooksie should just STFU - he's a moron

NHL '94 was what pushed me over the edge to spend my hard-earned money on a Sega system. I was 29... my then-girlfriend (now my wife) thought I was nuts.
Guess who I just sent this link to?
(I still have them all, by the way - system, game, and wife)
A little late to the party, but Happy Birthday, Kev - hope you enjoyed it!
(And 40 is just a number...)

@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG I watched at work anyway
Stick a Faulk in him?
What are the odds Zuc is signed by the end of the day? This is going fast & furious today!
@Wallace1 Not sure about that - he's can lead by example, sure, but he's got a lot to learn about being more outspoken as a leader

@Ranger Dave You have to remember Hags & Cally will be recovering from surgeries the first month or so...
Now bring in Step at 3.5 - 3.8, leaves an avg of 1.5 for Hags & Zuc (Hags should get a bit more than Zuc)
@thenyrblogneillI was just going to mention that - he's only 24. This is a steal!
@Josh6 That's the way to live up to your avatar, Josh!

@Ted Kazimiroff Maybe stunted offensively, but he made some of the most hideous turnovers this season - he's horrible defensively.
@gravytrain9 gotta lock up Stepan for more than 4...
1 year, 7 months ago on Anticipated Pay Days for Rangers RFAs
From an article on canucksarmy.com:
The Canucks have relinquished their lead in the Northwest Division following a series of no-shows against the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Minnesota Wild. The power-play is a mess, the team isn't scoring enough and auspicious possession numbers aside - the effort put forth by Vigneault's players has seemed inconsistent at best this season.
Hmmm - sounds vaguely familiar! Just sayin'...
1 year, 7 months ago on Vigneault Is the Guy
@ThrSage Still, that discussion has to happen at some point during the playoffs, not throwing the coach under the bus after being ousted.
I have mixed feelings about Torts being gone; I have the same issues everyone else had - but I hate to hear players had a huge hand in this
1 year, 8 months ago on Players Are Reason For Torts Firing; Richards Healthy Scratch An Organizational Decision
@craig_athertonI agree with you, especially about the comparison - but SOMEONE (maybe Richards, given their history together, or Hank even given his veteran status on the team) should have tried to speak up at some point. Callahan may not be mature enough yet to take on that role.
I still can't imagine that Hank would hold all of that in without ever complaining to Torts that their defensive "system" was getting him hammered back there.
We'll probably never know what went on in that locker room this season.
@Easy_Kreider Wanting to be coddled is one thing, wanting to be treated fairly is another - but this isn't the way you go about it.
@Josh6 Messier also had the balls to go have a heart-to-heart with Keenan to get him to ease up a little on the team & let them play hockey, instead of being worried about being benched for the slightest mistake.
Anybody do that this year? Nope, not that I heard... could've been Hank, should've been Callahan
Also, did we ever hear of any closed-door, players only meetings this season? The captain has to step up and take the reigns there as well, rally the troops together - as much as I love the guy, I'm not sure I see that kind of leadership from Callahan
Remember in '94 when Messier had to go to Keenan and get him to back off a little on the team, let them play their game? He was benching Leetch, pulling the same kinds of crap Torts did all season - he had a bigger doghouse than Torts.
Looks to me like this team didn't have anyone who had the guts to go in and talk to him man-to-man about his actions being detrimental to the team
@IcyCup Had to go there, didn't you...
1 year, 8 months ago on Torts Fired?!?!?!?!
1. Any coach is speculative right now, obviously the available names are going to be thrown around with regularity until one is named - I'm not going to take anyone's word for the frontrunner yet.
2. Please god, not Ruff
3. Avery should just shut up & stick to the fashion world - I will never get the image of his vogue short suit out of my head
Who told Jagr the Wolverine was a good look?

@JustinRP37 that should be a golf cub in his arm
Lucky to finish the period tied
WHAT THE HELL IS RICHARDS STILL DOING ON THE POINT!!!!
Stellar refereeing right there
Chara is just ridiculous with that stick - he picks pucks out of the air like crazy
McPhee, you are right about Pyatt
@greggray24 he wasn't even faked out - he just had NO CLUE
@IcyCup @DuPont_Snotty I was hallucinating obviously
Holy shit, 1 shot in 1:45 of pp time. Things cannot get worse...
Who sharpened the Rangers' skates today?
@McPhee37 My sympathies, McPhee - hate to hear you lost your buddy.
@AnnoyingJoe Aren't you forgetting something?

Wow - did not know the numbers were that horrible, but I should have guessed.
Agee with Muggs that they've played the same boring hockey for four years now. While I don't mind a defensive system, you can see how it really stifles the creativity of the offensive players - something that;s sorely lacking on this team (and teams past).
@Josh6 @dsclaw88 You've been touting Leetch all season. Aside from being a great QB as a player with great instincts, can you tell me what qualifications he has to coach?
