More Than Stats:
I’m not too big on hockey other than the Mighty Ducks being one of my favorite movies, no wait that was a fictional story. But anyway the only way I really recognize hockey players is through fashion, and the New York Rangers seem to be a very stylish team since I’ve covered their players in numerous post. In the November issue of Esquire Magazine, led by the 9th Annual Style Awards “Most stylish Athlete” recipient Henrik Lundqvist, Rangers players Michael Del Zotto, Brian Boyle, and Brad Richards join him as they pose in some of fall’s fashionable threads,in a feature entitled “Ice Cold Killers” Here are some of my favorites looks, Click to view more at Esquire. New York Rangers still suiting up during a lockout, swag!
“No one on the team has been criticized for being overdressed. If you want to look good and be a man and be confident, dressing up is one way to do it.” -Brian Boyle
Henrik Lundqvist enrobed in a slim fit Navy Suit, too smooth. You can’t go wrong with a Navy suit if you can’t decided on a color.
One-button wool suit ($1,295) and cotton shirt ($295) by Calvin Klein Collection; silk tie ($135) by John Varvatos.
I’m really feeling polka dot neckties this fall, and Brad Richards exemplify how sharp it looks with a suit.
Two-button wool suit ($2,700) and cotton shirt ($545) by Louis Vuitton; silk tie ($155) by Ralph Lauren Black Label; steel-and-ceramic Diagono chronograph ($7,900) by Bulgari.
Dapper fit for Mr. Michael Del Zotto
Two-button wool suit ($2,175) by Dolce & Gabbana; cotton shirt ($95) by Hugo; silk tie ($200) by Bottega Veneta; steel Datron watch ($2,295) by Movado
I’m not that much too big on pattern suits, I prefer to keep it basic, but I wouldn’t mind experimenting with Glen plaid like Brian Boyle is here. Simple and seems easy to pair with other pieces, its said to be the most iconic patten.
Two-button wool suit ($2,895) and cotton shirt ($325) by Giorgio Armani; wool-linen-silk-and-cashmere tie ($195) by Brunello Cucinelli; ceramic PAM 438 Tuttonero-Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT automatic watch ($16,300) by Panerai.

BEST OF MAXIM
Adam Rotter of SNYRB has the translated tweets from Sweden, but it looks like Michael Del Zotto and Dan Girardi may be joining teammate Carl Hagelin in the HockeyAllsvenskan with Södertälje. This is just another blow to the fans who believe a season will begin sooner rather than later, as more players flock to Europe to find ice time.
It’s interesting to see Del Zotto heading...
Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that as of now, Henrik Lundqvist does not plan on playing in Europe unless NHL season is canceled. While Brad Richards is currently pondering options, but is not having any discussions with clubs in Europe. ...with Lundqvist being such a workhorse and Richards up there in age, I think the time off might be the best thing for those two...
Jag har också fått höra att SSK är på väg att landa Dan Girardi och Michael Del Zotto.

Translation: I have also been told that SSK is about to land Dan Girardi and Michael Del Zotto.
SSK is the Swedish team Carl Hagelin is currently playing with.
...guess Del Zotto had a change of heart.

The Connecticut Whale won their first game of the season last night, beating Albany (the AHL affiliate of the Devils) 5-2. J.T. Miller netted his first AHL goal, as he simply deked Adam Larsson out of his jock en route to the goal. You can see the goal in the embedded highlights.
Kyle Jean (again), Tommy Grant, Andrew Yogan, and Brandon Segal also scored for the Whale. Segal, Marek...
It’s fair to say that the Connecticut Whale have had an indifferent start to the season, stumbling to a 1-3-1 record to open the year. What the Whale’s start also suggests is that when you dig a little deeper there may be a need for patience in regard to prospect development.
With two points in his first five games Chris Kreider has hardly set the world alight. Christian Thomas...
BRASS BONANZA TIME!!! #Whale win 3-1 see you all tomorrow night! #bleedgreen

In an effort to lighten the mood during the lockout, The New York Rangers Blog will be writing faux recaps for every Rangers game missed due to the work stoppage. Enjoy.

Look, I have a very strong opinion about Bleacher Report and what it stands for, but I'm not going to waste my time writing paragraphs complaining about it. If you're interested in a detailed explanation of the journalistic shortcomings of Bleacher Report you can read about it here.
But the purpose of me writing this article is to counter a particular blog post on Bleacher...
Locked-out NHL players are expected to get back last season's escrow payment on Wednesday, a union spokesman says.
Players are set to be given 7.98 percent of what they earned last year, plus interest, on the day they were to have received their second paycheck of the currently delayed season.
The escrow payments will amount to about $80,000 for every million dollars a player...
