@Neans @CJ Sorry did you say SADDLED with Richards? Oh, yeah it must suck to play wing for the guy who has second most assists on the team. My god what a fucking nightmare. How difficult it must be for Cally to put in goals with that kinda dead weight next to him. Have you even watched this season?
Also @dsclaw88 pretty much covered that retarded Chelios comparison already, so I'll not even both responding to it. Cally is a GREAT dude, and his effort counts for a lot in terms of how it bolsters his teammates and the fans. (I know all about being a lesser player on the bench and making up for it with effort, trust me.) But if you think that those intangibles are worth 6mil then you are blind my friend. Cally's game is going to fall off in the next 3 years faster than Drury's did, and all that will be left is an albatross contract, a broken right wing with a C on his sweater and a tarnished relationship with thousands of brokenhearted fans.

@Neans I think the point people are making is that Cally's style of play puts him at risk for injury (effort not skill makes him good.) You simply can't play that way as you age (especially if you are as small as Callahan is). So, either we are saddled with someone who cost 6mil and kinda sucks or someone who is broken literally all the time. There is no long term upside at the price we are talking about.
Cally to CBJ for Dubi. Straight across.
I can't even believe we are still having this conversation. 6 at 6 is WAY WAY over-value for Callahan, letter or not. Kick this greedy little fuck to the curb. Seriously, he should be on bended knee thanking whatever god he believes in for every dollar over 5 he is offered.
And as for the prophesies of doom, let me end the suspense for you. Even if he takes the 6 at 6 deal NYR have offered (and certainly if they go a dollar higher), the pressure on him to produce will be immense. He will make it about 1/4 of the way through next season before the pressure of the huge contract, his waning numbers, Larry Brooks tearing him a new asshole in the Post 3x a week and comparing him to Drury, and the whole of twitter either laughing their asses off or calling for his head gets to him and his game COMPLETELY falls apart. This has already gone too far, the org needs to cut their losses and walk away. Trade him, play him into the ground for the remainder of the the season, whatever. He's let his ego get the best of him, forgotten who he is, and why we love him. His time here is done.

@Kevin DeLury No he's a dirty prick, who not only looks like a giant baby (seriously look at him, it's fucking creepy), but cries like one as well, always with the complaining at the refs. He lacks the charisma, creativity and intelligence that set Sean Avery apart and made him so likable, to his fans and teammates. Even his detractors had to accept his talent for what he did, but that's not the case with Chris Neil. When you take away those qualities all you have left is an ugly fucktard who concussed Boyle in the middle of the playoffs. There is no room in our lineup for a player like that, and frankly I am little surprised that you don't completely agree.

Chris Neil? Are you fucking kidding me? The guy is a scumbag piece of shit and you wanna put him in blue? Ass.

@Kevin DeLury Well I was either agreeing with him or he didn't get it across very well. Take your pick. HA!

The crazy drunken cheering fans have been (mostly) priced out. The garden is not quiet because of the renovation, it's quiet because of the cost of the renovation.
@NickCeglia I hope you are right dude. The 78 jersey was pretty rad. (Good point on the logo mismatch as well.)
As for the WC jerseys...those are by far the worst rangers jerseys of all time. I have seen beer league jerseys that were better looking than those things. I would rank them with some of the worst all time NHL jerseys.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Are These Lundqvist's Stadium Series Pads?
Sadly (based on the colorway and striping), this means that they will probably be wearing their ugly ass Winter Classic jerseys in the Stadium Series.
Right now, as far as I am concerned (and it pains me to say this), The Rangers are a bunch of crybabies. "Aww coach yells at us and hurts our feelings. We don't wanna play for him. Get us a nice coach." Boo-fucking-hoo.
At the end of last season, with the disappointing finish, I was inclined to think "Maybe the players are right. Maybe Torts was holding them back," but looks to me like they NEED to be yelled at. The way they are playing right now is disgraceful.
Was Torts perfect? Hell no. Did he take a lot of the creativity out of the game for a couple of his elite players (Gabs, Nash, Richie)? Yes. Was he pretty harsh, and hard-headed most of the time? Undoubtedly. BUT, did he get the job done? Fuck yes he did. These boys got tired of being yelled at by their coach for not working hard, so they got him fired. But they forgot about the part where you gotta work hard whether you're being yelled at or not.

Cmon, Kevin, you are better than this. This is garbage. Even on a slow news day, you are better off posting trade rumors from HockeyBuzz.
We'll set aside the fact that if Sean was gay, he'd come out, period. He's too comfortable with himself not to. Anyone who's ever met him will tell you that.
Setting aside that obvious fact, if he was involved in a gay relationship of any kind I am sure you could expect the news to be broken by a "legitimate" source (e.g. Perez, Lainey, TMZ, Gawker), not some jerkoff with his first Wordpress sight reposting shit from all of those sources.
Also, Cohen and Avery's responses on Twitter and Instagram make it pretty clear that they think the "news" is ridiculous.

I wouldn't get too stressed about it, @KevinDeLury , you aren't getting tickets at face value anyways. They are all going to be taken by season ticket holders of each of the teams involved (and Yankees holders who will be given the option to buy as well.) Take whatever prices you see on the chart there and double (or triple) them, and you've got what you are paying for your seat. Alternately, I am guessing that an Isles blogger might float you a seat for free in exchange for sexual favors and the right to brag on the internet about them.
