GRACHEV SENT PACKING

New York RangersWe hate to say we told you so, but we told you so.

For all they press attention that surrounded Evgeny Grachev, repeatedly Howlings readers were told that it was just that – Hype.

While we’re completely sure that he won’t ever say so publicly or otherwise, we’d be willing to bet that the happiest man in the New York Rangers organization today is Connecticut Whale head coach Ken Gernander.

Why? Continue reading

A FUTURE WHALE IS BORN?

New York RangersWith their first pick in the 2011 NHL Entry draft, 15th overall, the New York Rangers selected centerman J.T. Miller.

One never knows what’s going to happen or how a player is going to turn out from the first round.

Will they turn out to be like Hall-of-Famer Brian Leetch (#9 overall in 1986) or will they be a Michael Stewart (#13 overall in 1990) who never played a single game in the NHL.

OF COURSE THEY GOT HIM…HE’S A LEGACY

New York RangersMaybe you’ll get the same feeling when you hear the full news on this, but when we heard the news that the New York Rangers made today in acquiring defenseman Tim Erixon, the son of one-time Ranger Jan Erixon, it just felt eerily like elements of Flounder and Pinto pledging to the Delta  Tau Chi fraternity in the film Animal House.

Flounder says, “No sweat. My (Father Jan) was a (Ranger). That makes me a legacy. They have to take me. It’s their law. Don’t worry.”

So the New York Rangers sent their two second round picks in the upcoming NHL draft in Minneapolis to the Calgary Flames and the team’s 2009 fifth round choice forward Roman Horak to get Erixon and a fifth round pick.

What makes this extremely strange is that the Rangers organization is extremely deep on defense and Horak is an offensive minded forward which the team is very low on.

This has the feeling that another move is coming that will see some defense leaving.

Okay, Since I’m acting like Bud Fox with my analysis of this situation,  we move on to Wall Street…

Gordon Gekko says, “Bright but not bright enough, Sherlock, roll the dice and play a little monopoly… what box would (Glen Sather) land on (to get himself a forward)?

That boys and girls is up to you to decide…

Here’s the official release:
