SPOTLIGHT: NHL REALIGNMENT

Bruce Berlet 7BY: Bruce Berlet

The New York Rangers could be seeing even more of the arch-rival Islanders if a realignment plan approved by the NHL Board of Governors on Monday night is implemented.

At the BOG meetings in Pebble Beach, Calif., the board approved a plan that eliminates the current two-conference, six-division setup in favor of a configuration that features four conferences based primarily on geography. Two conferences will have eight teams, the other two will have seven teams.

CALLAHAN GOAL CLIPS JETS WINGS

New York Rangers     VERSUS      Winnipeg Jets

You have to take wins however you can get them when the team isn’t firing on all cylinders and that is exactly what the New York Rangers did Monday night with a 2-1 road win against the Winnipeg Jets.

The team caught a break when Ryan Callahan’s pass from the right circle that was headed for Ruslan Fedotenko caught Winnipeg defenseman, Zach Bogosian’s skate and redirected into the net past starter Chris Mason. The goal, which proved to be the game-winner came on the power play – yes, the power play…and it wasn’t the first power play goal of the game for the Blueshirts, it was their second. In fact, both of the goals came on the power play for a Rangers team that had just one goal in their first 24 attempts, good for last in the league.

AND THE WINNER IS…

AHL LogoAHL NAMES RECIPIENT OF MICHAEL CONDON MEMORIAL AWARD

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. American Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews announced today that veteran linesman Brian Lemon has been named the 2010-11 recipient of the Michael Condon Memorial Award for outstanding contributions by an on-ice official.

An AHL linesman since 1987-88, Lemon has worked almost 600 regular-season AHL games over the past 23 years while juggling a full-time business schedule which often includes trips around the world. Lemon, who was selected to officiate the 2008 AHL All-Star Game in Binghamton, N.Y., is frequently counted on to mentor young linesmen in the Rochester area, and his hard work and dedication have a positive impact on the entire AHL officiating staff.

The Michael Condon Memorial Award was created in 2002 following the sudden
passing of veteran AHL linesman Mike Condon.

In operation since 1936, the AHL continues to serve as the top development league for all 30 National Hockey League teams. More than 87 percent of today’s NHL players are American Hockey League graduates, and for the 10th year in a row, more than 6 million fans attended AHL games across North America in 2010-11.

Question is though, hasn’t the organization already been down the smaller guy / scorer, trip a ton of times already? The Whale need more size. GM Jim Schoenfeld certainly knows that and those signings are likely still to come.
