Refelecting on Boyle vs. Brooks; ICYMI from the Banter; Playoffs continue Ranger-less

Today's New York Rangers notes After an eventful day of hearing the final thoughts from the Rangers on their break up day, things simmered down on Wednesday for everyone to collect their thoughts and formulate new opinions on the team moving forward. Full coverage of the Rangers break up day here. Social media and the blogosphere (including ourselves) had some time to break down the tense moment between Dan Boyle and Larry Brooks of the NY Post, during the veteran defender's final meeting with the NY media this season. [Blueshirt Banter] Since it was quite slow day (from what we...

In Defense of Dan Boyle

Dan Boyle didn't like the Post's narrative about him. So he chose his own ending. Believe it or not, my first stab at sports reporting was an audience with the King himself. I had never interviewed anyone in my entire life, yet with one hour's notice, there I was, in a dim room, on a low velvet couch (no joke), one on one with an elite player from my favorite team who also just happened to look like a Norse god. I made a joke. He laughed. I asked questions. We talked. But I have no record of any of it, because I realized at the last minute that the storage on my phone was full, and I...

Rangers’ Dan Boyle sounds ready to give up

Dan Boyle may be done after 18 seasons. The graybeard defenseman wasn’t ready to make his retirement official on Tuesday on Rangers breakup day, but feels it may be time to hang up his skates. He still feels physically able to do the job and know there are teams who would be interested in his...

VIDEO: Former Shark Dan Boyle rips New York Post columnists

Boyle is not particularly happy with these guys. The Pittsburgh Penguins eliminated the New York Rangers, and former San Jose Sharks defender Dan Boyle, on Saturday. On Tuesday afternoon, during the annual locker room clean out, Boyle let loose on New York Post columnist Larry Brooks. Brooks has a reputation for...well, for not being liked very much. John Tortorella, who in fairness isn't exactly a cool-headed guy, particularly despised Brooks while in New York. This article in particular may be the one that drew Boyle's ire. The defender also called out Brett Cyrgalis, who wrote this...

How much could Rangers get in a Ryan McDonagh trade?

Dan Boyle’s failed Rangers stint likely ends fittingly

This is the end: Goodbye to a Rangers era
