Larry Brooks at it again

http://www.nypost.com/sports/rangers/24032.htm

Todays addition of the Post really makes you think that Brooks reads this site. But then again he goes and proves he is not to smart.

Quote:
The Post has learned that the Rangers have reached an agreement to sign 21-year-old Medicine Hat center Ryan Hollweg, whose career was in jeopardy last year due to post-concussion syndrome. Hollweg, who missed nearly all of last year and the first two months of this year, recorded 57 points (25-32) in 52 games during the regular season and has 15 points (6-9) in 20 playoff games for the WHL champion Tigers, who will compete for the Memorial Cup beginning Sunday.

The 5-11, 200-pound Hollweg, drafted in the eighth round (238th overall) in 2001, chose to sign with the Rangers even though he had become a free agent.

Quote:
The Blueshirts have had preliminary contract discussions with Johan Holmqvist's agent, Don Meehan. Holmqvist was named the World Championship's all-star goaltender after helping Sweden gain the silver medal.

Larry, Johan Holmqvist was traded and was not Swedens WC all-star goaltender. The goaltender you are talking about is named Henrik Lundqvist. Please print a correction as soon as possible. Thank you :lol

Agree. Johan?
I have a tough time taking his articles with anything more than a grain of salt.
Is anyone a big fan of Brooks' articles?
The more I hear about Lundqvist, the more anxious I am to see him play at camp this summer.

Does anyone else think that Rumsfeld bares some resemblance to Sather?

Smug? check

Arrogant? check

Complete disregard for opposing views? check

Inability to admit mistakes? check

Canadien? D'OH

Definitely.
And neither of the two are being held accountable for their actions.

And for that matter, has anyone ever seen them in the same room together? Me neither. Coincidence?

Of course Rumsfeld is looking for weapons of mass destruction and Sather is a weapon of mass destruction.

And who's got the power to get rid of both those guys?
Sather - Dolan
Bush - American Public

Not sure who is more clueless

If Sather has a great draft/FA summer & Osama is caught expect both back for the next four years

Four more years of Bush..... whoa I just freaked myself out. I dunno witout starting a political debate, I'm not too happy with the way things are going right now in this country. Hopefully whatever people believe they come out and make their voice heard.

As for Brooks I will tell everyone right now that MANY of the reporters you read frequent this site. I know they do. Heck I remember entire paragraphs of my articles being paraphrased before.

Not looking to delve into a political debate here but.....

Speaking as a lifelong NY'er now living in the Atlanta area it is really scary how unflinchingly republican everyone here is. Even kids right out of college are die-hard Bushies. And no one seems to know what Haliburton is.

At least in the North East your voice will have a better chance of being heard at the Electoral College.

And now back onto topic....

I like Brooks. Not b/c he's always right or expresses my beliefs, or always scoops everyone else (I'm not sure if he does any of that really well), but mainly b/c he is entertaining. He always seems to have a bee in his bonnet about something someone in the league has done. And lets be honest, where are all of the other hockey writers while the NYR are playing golf? At least Brooks is writing.

Heres to good 'ol whats-his-name being the goalie of the future.

I'm off to Waffle House....

I think Flyer and Ranger fans can agree that Larry Brooks is captain clueless.

Its very common in the south and the west. When you got good ol' boys and cowboys roaming around.

Kinda funny actually. The people who took the longest accepting anyone who wasn't white and named "Bob" or "Smith" vote for the party that traditionally had the hardest time in granting rights to minorities and women. Gotta love it

I think both parties have HUGE flaws but I've noticed in my 25 years on this planet that as a whole {all over the country} Republicans tend to be the most "diehard" without really having a logical reason why. Both parties have people who live in fantasy world in terms of accomplishment but ANY party that can make Reagan and both Bush's seem like hero's has to be putting some big time blinders on.

But it's def. a lot more prevelant in the South and West. That's one reason why I'm getting tired of Las Vegas. The good ol' boys and the cowboys just get to you after a while. They fit the typical truck driving, beer drinking, loud talking, flag haggin, anglo saxon bearing, testosterine BS that other countries have come to love and admire over the years.

Nothing like sitting down to business with a european business, having them find out you're from the American west and then getting the standardized "why are you guys republican", "do you all have guns" and "do you rodeos" questions.

Another day in the life. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I feel your pain. I'm stuck here in New York with a bunch of liberals who think programs like affirmative action are actually a good thing. Not only that but they support gay marriages, as well. Next thing you know they are going to want to adopt kids.

But I see nothing wrong with two people who love each other getting married and if they are good people with morals, adopting kids isn't wrong, but that's just me, but I guess that the gay people I know are not the "typical" promiscous irresponsible people that most make them out to be.

Think about all of those monsters that take in kids for all the wrong reasons, take all of the cases that we hear about and multiply that by at least 50% and that's probably the more realistic idea of the "ideal" Man-Woman home that kids are brought into that get abused.

The Gay community that are looking to get married aren't the "in your face Queens" they are the ones that work a hard as you and I and are as morally decent as you or I and denying them the right to be married and have kids is kind of sad.

But that's just my opinion.

AND, while I myself do not vote (I don't complain either) if I did decide to vote I would vote Republican.

Yeah, the horror. With all the problems in the world, we shouldn't have to deal with two consenting adults who want to make a lifetime commitment to eachother. And gasp, may want to raise children in a loving environment.

I've got no problem with OT threads at all, but these politcal debates all end up going in the same direction. Take it to the political debate board.

That's a wrap.
