Justin:
Justin joined Blue Seat Blogs during the 2011-2012 season. Prior to coming on board, Justin co-founded MAC Goaltending, a goaltender development company. Justin specializes in goaltender analysis; stemming from his time with MAC Goaltending, and his time playing US Junior hockey and NCAA Division I Junior hockey. Having this much goaltender experience gives Justin a hands-on view of the goaltender position, which could be the most under appreciated position in sports.

Justin can be reached via email here, or via Twitter here.

Becky:

Becky joined the staff in 2013 after being a longtime supporter of the blog. After finding her passion for hockey in 2008, she started putting her college sports journalism work to use with the blog, focusing on opinion and around the league stories. An avid fan of too many teams, she brings a perspective to the group to remind everybody that there is hockey off of Broadway… errr… 7th Avenue.

You can find her on Twitter here.

Tyler: 

Tyler joined the blog in the summer of 2019. After becoming a fan of the Rangers in 2012, he found a passion for talking about hockey through any medium necessary. Objectivity is his goal in any analysis of hockey. Game day, you can find him on his favorite couch watching the game with his daughter Nora.

Rob Luker:

Blogging on-and-off about the Rangers since 2007, Rob began contributing to the site in the Summer of 2018. Inspired by the writing of Gabriel Desjardins and Rob Vollman, he is an unabashed supporter of advanced stats and analytics. In 2010 he purchased his one and only NYR jersey – Sean Avery.

Karly:

Karly joined Blue Seat Blogs in early 2020. She discovered her love for hockey while studying journalism at Ithaca College – a North American university, ironically, with no hockey team! When it comes to writing, Karly loves to consider hypotheticals and break down player performance. However, she is admittedly a notorious fan of the underdog – both on the ice and in real life.

Brandon Cohen:

Brandon Cohen is the former site manager of Blue Line Station who now lends a monthly article to the BSB team. He is a poet who enjoys spending time with his cat, offensive defensemen, and memes.

Rob C:

Rob joined the blog in 2016 and has written everything from game recaps to rants about the MSG broadcast. In early 2020, he revamped the blog’s podcast and launched Live From the Blue Seats, producing and editing each episode while co-hosting alongside Becky and Dave. Rob’s family has had Rangers season tickets since the early 2000’s, though his dad’s fandom traces back to the original Blue Seats in the Garden of the late 60’s and 70’s.

Yes, Rob and Becky are married, and have a beautiful daughter, Emily. The podcast is currently on hiatus because taking care of a baby leaves very little time for anything else. But the podcast will return soon!
