Random thoughts right now as I am at work:
*The Rangers are suing the NHL for violating antitrust laws. Read about it here. To cut down to the basics, the Rangers are the last team to have their own individual website - the rest have the same template. The NHL wants them to change and they don't want to. Wow, Gary Bettman trying to force boring conformity, who woulda thunk it?
*Rangers won last night against the Isles. I didn't get to see it because my girlfriend forgot to DVR it. Apparently there were a bunch of fights even though the recent rivalry primaries didn't play. As they say folks: its about the name on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back. If MSG replays it this afternoon, I will post some observations.
*Even though the Rangers are still in preseason (they play the Flyers tonight in an untelevised game), the regular season started today. Kings beat on the Ducks who clearly are suffering post-Cup depression. The crowd was filled with people wearing random NHL jerseys which was neat to see there, but highly aggravating when it happens in America. I don't get why a person would wear a Dallas Stars jersey to a Rangers Flyers game or something like that. Whatever, I'm just happy hockey season has officially started.
*And finally for now, Mirtle posted an in-depth team-by-team breakdown of the goaltending situations heading into the season. Definitely a good read.
