Boyle Hotter Than Lundqvist? Now You Talkin' Crazy

On Tuesday, Cosmopolitan released their 2013 list of hottest hockey players. Apparently, the way they decided to create the list was to have their readers nominate a hottie from each team. So, the Rangers representative is obviously Henrik Lundqvist...right? I mean you can't have a hottest hockey player list and not include Hank. Right? I guess you can, as teammate Brian...

Musings: the unlocked edition

Does Kreider deserve to make the opening night roster? I’m writing a musings article. That can only mean one thing: the lockout is over. Who else thought the Gary Bettman ‘apology’ fell on deaf ears? Show of hands? Thought so. On to the musings. TSN had an article earlier this week titled: “Leafs stand to benefit from new CBA”. Of course, this is presumptive from TSN. When...

John Tortorella would love these guys

Brendan Leipsic (Kelvin Harrison) OK the reason was to get a look at Brenden Kichton (NYI 2011 5th) but that I got to watch a machine like effort out of the Portland Winterhawks that was the flavor of icing that your mom used to spread on a cake.

Whale notes: Hrivik out with concussion, Whale sign Shayne Wiebe

Marek Hrivik, who many speculated would get a long look at camp (well, under normal camp) is out with a concussion. This could be one of the reasons why Hrivik may not be invited to the Rangers mini-camp this year. However with camps set to occur during the AHL season, and lasting only a week, it is unlikely that the Rangers would call up the majority of Connecticut’s roster. Chris...
