Bio not provided
It's sad but true. I'm lucky enough to be gifted tickets in section 109 a few times a year. Most if the time, I'm the only one yelling and not wearing a suit. However during games like this past Sunday against the Panthers, which are much cheaper tickets than the average game, there were a ton of actual fans. Jerseys everywhere, high fives from strangers, etc. It really only proves the point that money is holding real fans back and it's sad. There used to be so much more comradery and sense of community in the garden.
10 months, 1 week ago on Death of Madison Square Garden?
Can't believe Richards outright said he lost faith in Torts.

Learning to put the puck on net wouldn't hurt him either...

The update before this one had Moore. Why would they remove him? On a side note why all the Stralman hate? I think the guys been pretty consistent.

1 year, 5 months ago on I'm Sorry I Hope You Can Forgive Me
@StandnHere yeah that certainly could happen but I think they'll be a force. Their biggest weakness is between the pipes.
1 year, 5 months ago on Penguins Obtain Iginla, While the Rangers....
@StandnHere I don't know. They didn't deal away anyone that's dressing. They're going to be tough regardless.
Looked tougher tonight which I liked. Newbury was more impressive than I expected. How about that shoot goal by Step?
1 year, 5 months ago on Rangers 2, Capitals 3 (SO)
It's so hard to say what Torts should or shouldn't have done early. Of you remember he was skating them hard through the first few but the leadership group came to him and said they were dead (which they looked at the time) so he started going heavy in film and, at the time, it worked and they started putting some wins together. My guess is he went with that plan a little too long and some guys got lazy.

Someone make a GIF ASAP.
1 year, 6 months ago on Mr. Third Period
@Bettmansheadonaplatter lol. That was an impressive vertical leap considering he was on skates.
It's funny that you mention Nash giving out lessons. I've noticed a few players starting to protect the puck the way he does. Especially Stepan. It seems he's really understanding how to use his body to shield the puck.

1 year, 6 months ago on Richards Doesn't Practice as Kaleta Feels Like Garbage for Hurting Team Not Richards
I gotta say. I thought Bickel had his best game this year.
1 year, 6 months ago on Senators 3, Rangers 2, F/SO
@RangerGuy99 I agree there. He plays a ton. Right now, I'm really liking his shot from the point. But I also agree Stralman is a better option than DZ at this point.
@RangerGuy99 Girardi has a pretty mean sloper and he consistently puts it on net. No problem with him out there.
@KevinDeLury @JoshKaye as much as I'd love it, I don't think we see Miller at center. With 4 other centers, he's the only one versatile enough to play the wing.
1 year, 6 months ago on Rangers Don't Reveal Lineup
@KevinDeLury @JoshKaye I love that Nash is so good that when he starts at 9 points in 11 games, its a slow start.
1 year, 7 months ago on Rangers 5, Lightning 1
I'm now 2-0 at games I attend. And I agree about McD I lost a hat to Gabby and I was ready to lose one to Miller.
1 year, 7 months ago on Rangers 4, Islanders 1
@KevinDeLury he did make a pretty sweet play on that Nash goal. I think he'll be great. Plus they're wearing the heritage jerseys tonight so I fully expect a win. Haha.
1 year, 7 months ago on Line-up Changes Expected vs. Bruins Tonight
@KevinDeLury agreed but he's more naturally a play maker. I think he'd suffer on the wing. I just like him and want to see him succeed.
"Likely" should've been the last word there. Damned iPhone.
I do not like the idea of Stepan being a winger. Also don't think it's li
Sorry...I mean, yes, I am moderately excited.
LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!

@TheWrage @GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG AGREED!
1 year, 8 months ago on Henrik Lundqvist in This Is Sportscenter
He's a left hand shot so we'll see. Who knows, maybe his production will go up. I think Step will be looking for him more on the left too.
1 year, 8 months ago on Gaborik to be Moved to Left Wing
Yeah I definitely won't be purchasing any licensed merch anytime soon. Probably this season and next (save Stanley Cup champions gear). Also I'll be wearing cargo pants to games with a flask in each pocket. Although it'll be Jamison (sorry Kev)
I agree that they better AT LEAST offer center ice free for the ENTIRE season.
1 year, 8 months ago on Now that the NHL is Back, Are You?
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG we have the cap space to get it done this year for sure. Next year will be interesting with all the RFAs.
1 year, 8 months ago on Welcome to the 2013 Season Rangers Fans!!!!!
@KevinDeLury As angry as I've been and as fed up as I've felt, I've already emailed my ticket guy. Too happy to be angry but I hate myself for it. If that makes sense.
I'm sorry baby. I didn't mean any of those nasty things I said. I just get so angry sometimes. Please take my money!
This one's great, Kevin. The pregame fitness test quote actually made me laugh out loud.

@KevinDeLury Oh, I remember. 93-94 were my first games at MSG I just always thought the blues were cool. In the end though, I don't care what they're wearing (but not the liberty logo) just as long as they're winning.
2 years ago on Rangers Uniform Ranked #11 in All of Sports | August
I hear ya about the away team always looking the same. But for me personally, the Ranger's whites are my least favorite of their sweaters (the heritage "New York" one being my favorite) and I'm glad I get to see the others in person rather than the whites. It seems like they do wear the whites at home once or twice a year though.
@RealMikeSalerno From what I understand they can't really sign anyone if they think he's coming back. Unless they waive that person when he returns. But honestly LTIR is incredible confusing to me so I don't know.
2 years, 1 month ago on Rangers Would Match an Offer Sheet for Del Zotto | August
@RealMikeSalerno If there's a chance that Meszaros returns during the season, they can't count on that money. But yes Pronger gives them some more cash to work with.
James, was it you that I heard about Eminger skating with the Flyers from? I haven't been able to find anything about that.
I'm sure we'll see every conceivable line combo this season but if Stepan an Nash really click I think we could see Step in the 60 point range easy.
2 years, 1 month ago on Gaborik Feeling Good, Hitting the Weights | August
@BuckarooClub So it soud like they can count on Prongers money but not Meszaros. I don't know much about the injury either but they don't sound like they're sure he'll be out the entire season. Either way that does give them enough scratch to throw an offer at DZ. they must know it's futile and would only be to ruffle the Rangers feathers. Hopefully they decide they don't have time to play games and look elsewhere.
2 years, 1 month ago on Should Rangers Fans Be Worried About Del Zotto Contract Status? | August
So I just read the LTIR section of the current CBA and I'm more confused than ever. I give up.
Actually I always thought players on LTIR still counted against the cap. isn't that the case?
@BuckarooClub Good point, I didn't even think about Pronger. They should be looking to make some kind of move somewhere then. Hopefully they don't drive up DZs price. Does Meszaros' count for LTIR?
@AG_Blue @TheWrage Absolutely terrible off season for the Flyers. I almost feel bad for them...almost
In my opinion, the only thing an offer sheet from the Flyers would do is force the Rangers to pay more for him than they want to. But with 3.5 mil in cap space how bad could it really be?
@KevinDeLury @dapowl the consensus around the organization is that the signing will get done though. Not worried about it really.
2 years, 1 month ago on 2012 NHL Free Agency: Latest on Doan & Arnott | August
@dapowl @KevinDeLury not only does DZ need to be signed but he needs to make sure and step it up this year. I'd like to see him imporve his shot. ei shoot on net and maybe add some power. We need a PP quarterback and still don't have one. I'm sure Nash will help the PP though...said that about Richards too.
@dapowl @KevinDeLury Doan for 2 years would be fine but it seems like he's seeking a little more security. If that rumor is to be believed, that is.
@dapowl @KevinDeLury "for a year" being the operative term here.
I wouldn't mind the addition of Doan at all but NOT for 4 years and definately not for that much. Unless Sather has a (re)lapse in judgement I doubt we'll see him in blue and just like you, I'm fine with that.
