Despite all the crap Larry Brooks comes up with, he's usually very good in his assessment with the team.

The post definitely has the most entertaining hockey coverage. And Larry Brooks is idiotic a lot of the time. But he definitely covers the Rangers the best.

Which paper does Larry Brooks write for and would he most likely be the best to contact?

Brooks works for the Post...

how to contact him I have no idea. If I were him, I'd make sure I'm as uncontactable as possible.

Yea because as good as he is when writing about the Rangers, he's the Bruce Garrioch of the US in terms of trades and supposed rumors etc.

Yeah, the Daily News and Post at least offer some hockey coverage. The Times would rather cover high school football in Odessa than hockey in any form.

Brooks is definately the most opinionated of the Ranger writers. His trade rumors may be off the wall and he may tend to change stances on alot of different issues (and being a Post writer, thats not surprising), but his articles are always fun to read. As opposed to the Times, which just gives a game recap and throws in a quote here or there. I've also found the Journal News to have probably the most in-depth coverage of the team. It may not be as rant-filled and opinionated as Brooks, but if you're looking for the best injury updates, practice info, lots of quotes, and other small tidbits, I recommend checking out Andrew Gross' articles at thejournalnews.com.
