Single mom, working girl, NYRangers & Yankees fan.
What did I tell you guys? This is Ranger management (Slats) once again leaking preliminary negotiation info to his favorite butt boy (Brooksie) so that we all start hating on Stralman and cheer when he's shown the door. DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ, ESPECIALLY COMING FROM LARRY BROOKS, GENTLEMEN.

Boys, boys. Have you not learned? This is Slats again tarring a player in the media that he has no intention of signing. I suppose Stralsie could call his bluff and sign for way less, but no doubt he'll get more on the open market than what Sather wants to pay. Gotta save the big bucks for those veteran free agents. Say goodbye to Mr. Stralman.

Starting to feel better now.
It's like a poke in the eye seeing that video clip on top of this game commentary. Please start winning, boys. I need to stop being depressed.

@Betweentheworlds @rangermom @DubiLeetchThey were less than $300 K apart at the end, and Bartlett was waiting for one last call that never came. Then Sather blamed it on the no-trade - which he just gave to Girardi. Smells like the plan was to trade all the time to me.
@DubiLeetch I sooo agree with you. Sather is a douche. This "Cally is a greedy SOB" story line was a ploy by Sather & co. to make fans be okay with the fact that he was going to be traded. Everyone starts high when you're negotiating. Why not? Why negotiate against yourself by starting lower? You don't often hear about that, because most negotiating goes on in secret. Did you hear about what Zach Parise wanted from the NJD before he left for Minn? No. Why? Because Lou L. has class. So many of the fans are mad at Cally, when their ire should be directed at Sather. But he's good at the deflecting blame game. It's business, I get that. I just don't care for the way Sather does business. If we win, I'll be happy. If we don't, well, I'm rethinking renewing my season ticket. Getting tired of watching the same movie.
My head says this was a smart move by management (even if I don't like the way they smeared him with all the leaks), but my heart is heavy.Cally is my homey -- it was great to have a Rochester boy as captain of my team and make me proud every night he played. It will take me some time to get over it, but I'll adjust, as will we all. Right now, I feel like this kid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-oB2gYZKjk&feature=youtu.be. But I'm excited to see what will happen next. Let's go, Rangers!

@KevinTheNYRBlog And the Cally smear campaign continues from the NYR head office. Negotiations start silly everywhere. They're just not reported, except by people who want to justify their actions later.

Sather has managed this thing so brilliantly that, when we don't win the Cup this year, it will be ALL CALLY'S FAULT. Man, that guy is the Master of Deflection.
All I can say is, well played Glen Sather, well played. You have all these guys hating the player that every one one of these jokers loved just a few months ago. And, it's deflected the blame that should be on you for all the ridiculous deals you've made in the past. You, sir, are an evil genius. MWAAAAAHHHAAAAAHAAA.
1 week ago on Rangers Decline Callahan's Six-Year, $6.3 Million Per Year Proposal
C'mon, guys. You are acting like this contract - if it happens - is the move that will doom the Rangers forever and make Cally persona non grata in Rangerstown. Sather has been tossing around much bigger contracts to "stars" (at least 3 on the team right now) and we haven't won anything. Whether you think Cally "deserves" it or not -- it's what the market will pay for him. That said, when it comes to legacy -- winning is what determines it. If we win the prize with Cally in the fold, then he will be forever revered. If not, he will be someone the fans cheered for because he gave his all until he couldn't do it anymore. I just don't get the hate -- and I don't think most fans' feelings about the Captain will change when this circus is over, one way or another.
I detect a distinct lack of panic in this post, Kevin. I'm worried -- do you feel okay? Seriously, though -- my observations of the game differ. This was less about "physicality" and more about bad defensive lapses from everyone -- forwards, D-men and Hank. That plus not burying a number of juicy chances. The Bruins did not bring their A-game on the physical side, and we were beating their D repeatedly. That said, I agree that this team needs bigger and badder players with a killer instinct if they want to survive deep into the playoffs -- when Boston WILL bring their A-game. Same story we've been talking about all year.

Hahaha. Good guy Glen trying everything he can to sign Cally. Bad guy Cally is a disillusioned, disloyal SOB. Love how you are playing into this narrative. There is no good and bad here. It's business and I don't blame Cally one bit. He sacrifices his health every night for our entertainment, and the career of a hockey player is over when most of us are just hitting our prime earning years. Cally will not be a big product endorser. He won't be living the glamorous NY lifestyle when he retires. This is his last shot at a big payday and he's going for the brass ring. Tell me who among us would not do this? 6 for 6 will get it done.
