Same Old Story, Same Old Song And Dance.

I hate to be cliche, and ripoff the title of an Aerosmith song, but for the Rangers this holds true. You’d figure that they’d learn by now not to dip into the UFA pool and come out with every name available. The Rangers a legitimate shot at drafting a potential future legend in the next draft in Sidney Crosby. At the end of this year when the playoffs became a pipe-dream, they just started playing for pride and hoping that they’d slip into the bottom five for the draft lottery. If this year was they year they were going to miss it, then that’s fine and dandy. This upcoming year, they can’t afford to miss it with Crosby waiting.

Unfortunately, Darth Sather has shown a pure stroke of stupidity and has displayed much interest in many names in the free agent market. “Same Old Story, Same Old Song And Dance.” I’ve grown up since the last time I’ve watched the Rangers in the playoffs. It’s absolutely sad that it’s gotten to this point, and it doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon with Sather looking to such names as Craig Conroy and Brian Rolston, (don’t get me wrong, great additions to a young team that needs leadership and intangibles) Pavol Demitra, Alex Zhamnov, Mathieu Schneider (Rangers could use a good top-pairing defenseman) and a list of other big namers. Then you got your character players, Marty Rucinsky, Matthew Barnaby, Chris Simon, and Ian Laperierre (sp?) who would all provide a good character for the young kids to look up to, with Rucinsky being in the top 10 in plus minus on a horrible team for most of the season last year.

The point of this article is that they shouldn’t be signing a big name center or player. They should let the kids play, and if they lose, it’s not necessarily bad. They realistically have one of the 5 best shots at getting Sidney Crosby in the next draft. Why ruin a chance at getting a big name superstar to miss the playoffs and hang around in the middle of the pack once again like we have for the last 7 years?

    Poor little faggot, you would never talk half of the shit you do on here offline.

    I’m glad you get your kicks from this.

    Get real. Your style has given you away as that butthugger A.K.A Knobbygobler, toto, Purplehelmet, kunta, swedishmeatball and whatever else you call yourself in order to fulfill your empty pointless life. Try reading a book and stop crapping and slinging your @!$#*(&%#@*&$! and *********** around.

    TSN is reporting that Khcrysthoff Oliwa has signed with the New York Rangers for a lucrative deal worth $67 Million dollars over 9 years. When GM glenn Sather was questioned about the generous contract, he replied (qoute) :

    The dude has all the qualitys we have been searching for in a leader, captain, and veteran player to lead the boys to the land of the cup. We are excited to have solved all our problems in so short a time.

    In other news, D tom poti was said to have been quietly whimpering during the entire speech, and was only comforted when told by sather that he could wear 2 “A”s on his jersey.

    Qualitys? You mean, qualities, right?

    Glen* Sather, not Glenn.

    2 A’s… yes…

    Here are your’s…

    A #1 = Assclown: Not having a life and impersonating people was an old trick used back in elementary school days. What’s the matter, the material in school is too hard for you these days?

    A #2 = Abnormal: As in… Abnormal obsession with me. You’re pretty *****ing pathetic if you have to stoop to these levels just to get my attention. You must be attention deprived offline.

    You’ve made an ass of yourself at this site. You’re now making an ass of yourself at wowhockey. No one likes you, anywhere. You’re pathetic. People hate you on, and offline. You should just kill yourself. Pick your poison, I’d be glad to help you out as long as it’s not messy and I don’t have to make much of an effort. You’re not worth an honest effort.

    Just because a young goalie doesn’t put up stellar numbers immediately doesn’t mean he’s ruined. You put an actual NHL defense in front of him and don’t get upset if he doesn’t post a shutout everynight and he’ll be just fine. Does this mean he’ll be the next great goalie? Who knows, but you won’t find out unless he plays.

    Keep in Holik was supposed to be a “character guy” that they brought in to lead team. However, they kept an over the hill Messier on the team because he brought extra media attention to the team even though he was hurting them. Messier did nothing for this team in his second stint, he was merely living off old glory in the spotlight. Just the fact that Messier is gone bodes better things for this Franchise.

    That is a very cute little winky guy, Is it a creation by yourself?

    I honestly dont go to wowhockey, so anybody you dislike there is not me. You have made a dreadful mistake, my interest in you goes only as far as our common interest in the beloved Rangers and the glory they so generously shine upon the NHL. The cup is soon to be had, my friend, let us not quarrel is trivial matters but look to the greater task of lifting the hardware.

    Thank you for your grammer and spelling corrections, I can always depend on your keen eyes. You are better than the spellchecker on my computer.

    These are some of my favorites. feel free to PM me all of yours.

    Yeah, ok kid.

    You’re a broken record, come up with something new, and at least keep me interested.

    By the way… Grammar.*



    Thanks for playing, game over.

    I never said he’d bring them to glory. But that’s a future superstar, something the Rangers haven’t had in their system since Tony Amonte, for crying out loud.
