Chris Drury Wins 329 Faceoffs In One Night…

December 30, 2007

Chris Drury has amassed a mind boggling 329 faceoff victories in one night on Sunday, a new record. This shattered the previous record of 70 by Montreal Canadiens Center Joseph Henri Richard set in 1973. The Rangers, ironically enough, defeated Richard’s former team by a score of 4-3 thanks to a breakaway goal by Brendan Shanahan in overtime.

Drury was winning faceoffs left and right Sunday night. His concentration and hand-eye coordination was impeccable and surpassed by no one. In addition to the 29 faceoff wins against the Canadiens, Drury was able to win 20 faceoffs in the Flyers/Panthers game, 14 faceoffs in the Kings/Blackhawks game and thus far he was won 16 faceoffs in the Ducks/Canucks game. The Ducks and Canucks are currently in the third period and Drury will surely add to his record total before the night is over.

Amazing enough, Drury’s night of faceoff wins was not finished there. He was able to win various faceoffs around the world. He won the faceoff of Herm Edwards and Eric Mangini at Giants Stadium, he won the faceoff between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, he won the faceoff between National Treasure and Alvin and Chimpmunks at the box office, he won the faceoff between the Jets and the Sharks on the westside, he won the faceoff between many married couples over the country, he won the faceoff between the Writer’s Union and Hollywood studios, he was able to win the faceoff between Doug Funnie and Roger Klautz, he was able to the win the faceoff between oil and vinegar (not even density could stop him), he was able to win the many faceoff between children fighting over the remote the control……he was even able to the the faceoff of “ALIEN VERSUS PREDATOR”

When asked about his unstoppable and historic night, Chris quaintly replied, “I just get into a groove and I get a few bounces my way, that’s it.”

Today’s Win

December 1, 2007

After today’s dominating victory over the Ottawa Senators, the Rangers showed they are a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference.

At this point there is only 1 question to ask: is NYR great or the greatest???

I am not happy with the design change on the Ranger’s website. I don’t even know where the news section is? Is it the budlight sponsored menu? Theres no news on it, it’s just random stuff. And I don’t want beer bringing me news.

Two losses in a row, three losses the islanders this season, and now this horrific web site. This organization is falling apart from every direction.  Thursday game is a must win, this game will make or break the season.  The Rangers need to gain some points in the Hummer Metro Ice Challenge. It is unfair the Islanders are leading this contest because they are so proficient at giving hummers.

Mess in the hall

November 11, 2007

No, we’re not talking about the mess in your local college cafeteria hall. We are talking about “the Captain,” Mark Messier being inducted into the hall of fame today. I have not see the video yet, but I am very excited to watch one of the finest leaders and human beings getting the credit he deserves. It is sure to be a heart-warming clip, and Mark probably let the water-works fly as he usually does (you gotta give it up for a man who is not afraid to wear his emotions on his sleeve). Was there a better sight for Rangers fans then watching Messier come down on the wing, pick up his right foot, bend his leg and snap a shot right through the 5-five of an unexpecting goalie? Rangers in 08 would like to congratulate Mark Messier for his induction in the hall of fame…we would the Rangers organization been without him???

HERE A CLASSIC NYR VS. NYI HIGHLIGHT FROM THE 90’S…

Henrik is King

November 5, 2007

Who cares if the Rangers don’t score five goals a game?

Who cares if they even score two, if the King posts a shutout?

And now, we can be certain that Sean Avery is 100% healthy. His dive late in the 3rd period was a thing of beauty.

Going to be at the game tomorrow … will post after … probably.

Fan Opinion: What to do with the Rangers?

October 23, 2007

Hey fans, it’s your turn to voice your opinion about the Rangers current woes. I would figure that most fans are as frustrated as I am about this lack of scoring and the wasted efforts of Henrik Lundqvist. The team needs some original ideas. What do you, the fans of NYR, think the Rangers should do? Maybe Sather and Renney will listen to us…

VERSUS: Pat Verbeek is as important as Wayne Greztky to hockey

October 23, 2007

Versus Network, in all their infinite wisdom premiered a segment during the 2nd intermission in tonight’s NYR game about borderline hall of famers. On this list was Pat Verbeek, the little ball of hate. The man who single handedly ruined hockey in Hartford and broke the heart of Whaler fans around the world.

Pat Verbeek, hall of famer??? REALLY? Over Dino Ciccarelli??? I thought the hall of fame doesn’t allow people who wore the turtle shell JOFA helmet in?? (except for Jagr of course)

More evidence that VERSUS is the KFC of hockey coverage…

Apparently Pat himself was shocked about this coverage as well
