Former Ranger Pavel Bure headed to Hockey Hall of Fame

Former Ranger winger Pavel Bure was one of four elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame this afternoon. Bure will join Joe Sakic, Mats Sundin, and Adam Oates as the class of 2012. During his two-year stint with the Rangers, the oft-injured winger still managed to put up almost a point-per-game pace, with a line of 31-19-50 in 51 games….

Sundin Retires

Mats Sundin has decided to call it quits, announcing his retirement earlier this morning. After 18 seasons, 13 in Toronto, Sundin amassed a line of 564-785-1349 in 1346 games. He will go to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, there’s no doubt about it. This is also one less name that the rumormongorers can link the Rangers to…

Rangers Interested in Sundin?

Finally, some hockey news to report on. After 750 words of ranting on two topics, it feels good to post on something that actually relates to the Rangers. By the way, don’t forget, if you are interested in a BSB Fantasy Hockey League, email me. According to Steve Zipay, the Rangers are reportedly interested, again, in Brett Favre’s Mats Sundin’s…

It’s Not Just About the Money

As predicted here, Sundin went to the Canucks for more money. I couldn’t be happier. The last thing this team needed was an aging veteran who isn’t a fast skater. I mean no disrespect to Mats, who is a great player and will probably make the Hall, but that’s the disadvatage of being 37 in the “new NHL”. The Rangers…

Yet Another Sundin Post (Updated)

It’s been a whole 12 hours without another Sundin post, so it’s about time we get one out there. Today is his decision day. Just so everyone is aware of the situation, Sundin will have to pass a physical before he actually signs. What does that mean to the Rangers? Simple, with the roster freeze coming, the Rangers simply will…

So what’s it gonna be Mats?

As we sit on the eve of Mats Sundin’s big decision, one has to wonder…is this a move the Rangers have to make?  Or are they simply reverting back to their old ways, going after the the biggest available name out there, and not necessarily for the right reasons?  One would have to think that given Sundin’s track record that…

Game 35: Rangers vs. Kings

According to Steve Zipay, Vally may get the nod tonight against the Kings. I agree with this. Let Hank rest up and be fresh for the game against my pick to win the Cup this year (before they set a record of 25 wins in the first 30 games). Considering the strong effort by everyone last night (even Kalinin, who…

Some Tidbits

After a very busy day of football and fixing things around the apartment, a few notes: Corey Potter will be traveling with the team on the west coast swing (as per Sam Weinman). This is probably a just in case scenario, as it is much tougher to get someone from Hartford to the west coast for a game. I’m hoping…

Game 33: Rangers vs. Carolina

Hopefully that pathetic defensive showing last night doesn’t linger. And yet, they still don’t have a seventh defensemen? Let someone, anyone, sit. Please. Potter played well. Sundin is in the house. Don’t get your hopes up though. Considering it is a Saturday night, and I like to believe that I have some sort of social life, I will not be…

Sather Breaks Out the Welcome Mats

As published earlier, Sather is preparing to meet with Mats Sundin this weekend. If anyone didn’t expect this to happen, well, wake up. He was going to be in town, it made no sense to not sit down and talk with him. Now the question is two fold, 1) How does he fit with the Rangers? and 2) How can…
