Hey guys and gals sorry for the extended absence again. I took a bit of a vacation for Thanksgiving but I’m back. I hope all of you had a good Thanksgiving and the NHL lockout didn’t ruin it.

Anyway, tonight is the Atlantic City charity game with a handful of Rangers taking part. All of the money will go to Hurricane Sandy victims which is nice. Brad Richards really deserves a pat on the back for being a good humanitarian during the super storm and such. Maybe a King Clancy for him if there’s a NHL season? Be the first Ranger since Adam Graves to win it.

Anyways, back to that lockout. Yes it’s still going on and both sides aren’t happy. The players have given miles but the owners still want more. The owners are more interested in destroying the union than making a deal. I don’t really see an end for this. Players weren’t lying when they said this fight can go on a couple years. This has really been a giant roller coaster. At least back in 04′ there was nothing to report because they weren’t meeting at all! This lockout has had more twists and turns than last year’s playoffs. I think I’ve lost years off my life just following this ordeal.

Anyway, that’s all I got.
