    And yes, they did. : ) I was in a Sports Bar for that one. It was so nerve-wracking. That Devils series was far better than the Cup Round, IMO. What exciting hawkey. I mentioned it in another thread - the Fatcesa one - that Steve Somers is one of my favorite sports broadcasters. It wouldn't matter what sport he was talking about, he would always manage to stick in, "Rangers in seven!" "So, Steve, ya think the Lakers are gonna win tonight?" "Rangers in seven!" It used to crack me up. He did it for YEARS, as well as take every opportunity to drag out the Howie Rose, "MATTEAU! MATTEAU! MATTEAU!" He played that as an answer to a phone call from a breathless Jets fan after the Jets knocked the Cheats out of the POs, haha. The funny thing about Messier is that he's such a softie in real life. The guy cries more than Dick Vermeil.

    Lou Lamoriello signs with Islanders and cleans house, Garth Snow and Doug Weight fired, new coach Trotz at $4M/year because the Caps wouldn't offer him more than $1.9M

    Tavares meeting with teams to take offers, Rangers will not make an offer and didn't push hard for Kovalcuk - committed to a rebuild

    Kovalchuk to the Kings 3 years x $6.25M


    free agency officially starts Sunday

    I don't know what to make of Gorts, but I loved Drury's assessments of the draft picks. First time I've seen him interviewed to that extent. Glad he's in Gorts ear.

    And don't know how I missed this but Ottawa had to dump Hoffman after his girlfriend went psycho and started stalking and going crazy against Karlsson's wife so much that she had to get a restraining order in court.

    Not ready to burn the season yet. The team has to find its identity and build chemistry. It's a long season, wake me up at Christmas

    Good game last night, fellas! Ovechkin had a couple Power Play goals that were more bad luck for Hank than anything else. I thought the Rangers played pretty well playing a back-to-back on the road. Nisky's game winner at the end was a slam dunk too. I think the Rangers are better than people think.
