Well, it’s about time isn’t it? Baseball just goes on and on and quite frankly- it bores me to death. Anyway, I know hockey season is near when the NFL season starts up. Therefore, NHL training camps will be in full stride this week. The New York Rangers will start the year off with training camp this Friday. To me there are plenty of questions that need to be answered. However, for this blog, I will not delve in too deep about who should or shouldn’t make the big club. Too often I’m asked what I think, as well as other bloggers, and in the end sometimes we’re right and sometimes we’re wrong. I think for this season I will wait and see how training camp and the pre-season unfolds before I give my (so called) expertise. Really folks, opinions are fun and interesting, but results are what counts. The results simply have not been there lately for the boys in blue, but I, like many remain optimistic. If you have opinions, I will respond to them. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
Nice to hear that Marc Staal has been secured for the next 5 years. Glen Sather and Staal’s agents should be applauded for the deal. 5 years and 3.975 per year? Very reasonable and it should give Marc the stability that he was looking for. I like this signing, big time.
As for me personally, I will be heading into my senior year at Quinnipiac where I do the color commentary for the men’s hockey team on the radio. My man Bill Schweitzer (play by play) and I will be back at it when the Bobcats try to improve upon last season’s heartbreaking loss to Union in 3 games after winning the longest game ever to start the series. I, for one, am expecting bigger and better things from coach Rand Pecknold’s squad.
Also in the past year I was fortunate to meet up with a passionate Rangers fan by the name of Paul Scaglione (aka Pauly D). As most of you know by now, we had done a BlogTalk radio show called “The Pauly D Program”. We covered everything hockey and of course, the New York Rangers. Well, we’ve decided to continue with the show and it will now air on Tuesday nights during the hockey season. The 1st show will be Tuesday, September 28th and here’s the kicker- it has been renamed “the Instigators”. I’m looking forward to it and hope you all can join us!
