Four Thoughts: 1/29

1. The Dennis Wideman incident with linesman Don Henderson is turning out to be a major black-eye for the NHL. Local and national news are running 15 second hit bits every hour which basically show to the untrained eye, a NHL tough guy intentionally barreling over a ref with no on ice penalty. For all […]

Did The Rangers Botch The Hagelin Trade?

There’s no doubt that you’ve seen by now, the positive effect that Carl Hagelin has had on the Penguins lineup since being added there a little less than two weeks ago. And while his linemates, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel are significantly better linemates than the Rangers could muster, one wonders if the Rangers are […]

Brooks: Girardi’s Contract Contains NMC

Earlier this month, we passed along information that according to hockey magazine ‘The Fourth Period’ and David Pagnotta reported that Dan Girardi’s contract did not contain a no-move clause in his contract that was signed in 2014. Now that report is being refuted. In Larry Brooks’ Slapshots column yesterday, he reported that Girardi does in […]

Four Thoughts: 1/22

1A. By now, most of you have heard about the latest twist in the Jonathan Drouin saga, with the young Lightning forward getting suspended by the team on Wednesday for failing to report to his AHL game. The reaction from former players when about as you would expect:

Rangers Sign Daniel Paille

Earlier this morning, Sean Hartnett reported that the Rangers had signed Daniel Paille to a one year, $575k contract. As far as where he’ll be reporting to remains to be confirmed. Last season, he had 13 points in 71 games with the Bruins and I believe he was on a tryout offer with the Blackhawks […]

Rangers Facing A Huge Potential Problem

Written by: J. MacWilliams (Say My Name) Language is great. One of the fundamental differences between humans and all other animals has been our creation of a symbolic world which represents the real world. Words do a wonderful job of this, until they don’t.
