Report- Avery Name Attached To Brothel

from the New York Daily News,

Avery, 27, a trash-talking enforcer who has dated a string of models and actresses, is listed as a $500 client of brothel Maison de L’Amour.

Contacted Friday at the number in the records, the pretty boy known in the NHL as “The Animal” at first laughed when told where his name had turned up.

“For some reason, I highly doubt that,” Avery told the Daily News, insisting he was the target of a practical joke.

“It’s April Fools’ Day coming up and I’m not going to fall for it.”

It’s no joke. His name is one of more than 2,000 on a computer spreadsheet, detailing Davis’ X-rated operations, obtained by The News.

You See How Rumors Start

via Russia Today,

It looks as though Jaromir Jagr will rejoin the team he played for during the NHL lockout. The current New York Ranger will resign for Avangard Omsk for next season.

The Omsk club will start negotiations with the 36-year-old in New York next week.

Jagr Not Ready To Commit For Next Season

from the NY Daily News,

Jagr - who scored 16 goals in 32 games for Omsk during the lockout year - insists he is not yet ready to commit to anything. But he has hinted in recent weeks that he believes negotiating a new deal with the Rangers is unlikely to happen.

“It’s not nice at this stage to talk about anything,” Jagr said, uncomfortable discussing his 2008-09 plans while he’s trying to captain the Rangers to the playoffs and a Stanley Cup. “(Omsk) finished their season. They’re coming here. I played there for a year. There’s no reason not to talk to them, not to meet them.

“They’re going to spend a week here? I’m not sure. I just keep in touch with them for a long time, since I played there. That’s nothing new.”

How Weird

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Imagine Henrik Lundqvist’s surprise upon discovering that Martin Brodeur had been quoted in the Jan. 14, 2008, edition of Sports Illustrated as saying of the Rangers’ goaltender, “The way he plays is not something I like too much.

“Lundqvist is weird.”

“I have to tell you, I respect Marty a lot, and it’s always a great challenge for me to play against him, but I don’t know what to say about what he said about me,” a rather bemused Lundqvist told The Post yesterday.

Interview Transcript: The Staal Brothers

Today, the NHL arranged a teleconference call for the media, speaking with the Staal brothers: Eric of the Carolina Hurricanes, Marc of the New York Rangers and Jordan of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Pittsburgh has already clinched a spot in the playoffs, and Carolina leads their division and the Rangers are sixth in the East. If all three clubs make the playoffs, the brothers would become the first set of three brothers to compete in the post-season since 1992 when and the Brotens (Aaron, Neil and Paul) and the Sutters (Brent, Rich and Ron) all competed in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

    Q.    Marc and Jordan, I think you guys faced in each in the OHL Playoffs a few years back. I was wondering for each of you what your most vivid memory of that season was competing against each other, if there were any memorable one-on-one battles?

Gomez Hurt In Rangers Shootout Loss

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers and Gomez were saying, “upper body injury,” following the play at 9:48 of the first on which No. 19 went crashing into the rear-boards after losing his edge in becoming entangled with Lasse Kukkonen on a left-wing rush.

Gomez, who was kicking his skates in pain as he lay on the ice, skated to the bench. He remained there briefly. Though he had X-rays taken, he will be re-examined and re-evaluated today at the club’s practice rink.

If Gomez, who leads the sixth-place Rangers in points (67) and assists (51), suffered broken ribs, he’ll probably be sidelined for the final seven games. If the injury is more complex than that, the playmaking pivot may be out an even more extended time, into the playoffs.

more on the Rangers…

added 2:14pm, via Slap Shot at the NY Times,

The team said Gomez’ unspecified upper body injury turned out to include no broken ribs and should not keep him out for an extended period. He is listed as day to day and could even play in Tuesday’s rematch with the Flyers at Madison Square Garden, although that is probably optimistic.

Report- Rangers vs. Islanders On Jan. 1st

via Newsday,

Citing “as good a source as I can tell you,” MSG Network’s Al Trautwig reported on MSG’s “Hockey Night Live” Friday that the Rangers and Islanders will indeed play an outdoor game at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 1.

added 9:25pm, from the NY Daily News,

Newsday briefly posted a note saying that Al Trautwig called Rangers-Islanders at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 1 “a done deal.”

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly was as shocked by anyone by that news. In an e-mail he just told me: “At this point, we’re not even close to concluding arrangements on a game at Yankee Stadium. But it’s something we continue to be interested in.”

My question is this… Why remove the story?  Just put up an updated post, story, etc.  You have been caught with your mistake, just come out and admit it!

Put An End To The Chant

via Slap Shot at the NY Times,

During the final 10 minutes of many Rangers home games, the spotlights focus on Section 407 as Larry Goodman, the season-ticket holder known as Dancin’ Larry, pumps up the crowd with a frenetic dance in the aisle.

As Goodman’s routine is broadcast on the giant monitors above the ice, a familiar chant picks up momentum. “Ho-mo Lar-ry!” the crowd shouts.

The chant is one example of what several gay hockey fans describe as a toxic atmosphere during Rangers games. They say that Madison Square Garden, which owns the team, is not doing nearly enough to address their concerns.

Drury Time

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Last night at the Rock, the clock was tick-tick-ticking away on the game and, in essence, on whatever chance the Rangers New York Rangers were going to have at making a dash down the stretch to capture the East title.

It was 1-0 Devils with fewer than five minutes to go in third, just as it had been 1-0 Devils from the 6:05 mark of the first.

In other words, Drury Time.

Time for the Big Moment Kid.
