I was over at Puck Daddy where they are having a live chat.  I posed a question about something I read about last night while watching the Mets lose their 7 run lead.  It turns out that there are rumors swirling around that the Rangers are shopping Scott Gomez in order to make room for Mats Sundin under the cap.  I know.  Ridiculous.  I asked my question which was then answered by Spector and David Pagnotta.  Greg Wyshynski was just there for moral support I guess.

Wyshynski –  Bingo. Back to Gomez, because Dave didn’t get a crack earlier:

[Comment From Eric from 5-hole.com]
Does it even make sense for the Rangers to move Gomez and Prucha just to make room for Sundin? Prucha proved in his first season that, when given the ice time, he can produce and Gomez is a great center that has more years left in him than Sundin.

Spector –  Seriously, though, Dave’s right about the vacation
1:15
Wyshynski –  Pags, what do you make of the Gomez stuff?
1:15
Spector –  THE RANGERS AREN’T MOVING GOMEZ!!!!!
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  I’d be quite surprised if they move Gomez… and talking to a few people around the league, it’s not a real option for the Rangers.
1:16
Wyshynski –  Ow, angry Spector emoticon! The man is serious!!!!!!

Spector –

I think Spector’s gassy…somebody burp him…
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  haha, I feel your pain Spec
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  Gomez is sticking it out in the Big Apple.

About 15 minutes before I got to the party, and the reason Spector put on his angry face when I asked, Wyshynski and Spector answered my question.

[Comment From Neil]
So is Gomez being shopped around or not?
1:02
Spector –  Hi, Neil, no, Gomez isn’t being shopped
1:02
Wyshynski –  NO!
1:02
Wyshynski –  Look, like we said this morning: He’s in the second year of a SEVEN YEAR DEAL, and we haven’t even seen him play with a winger that he can mesh with yet.
1:03
[Comment From Neil]
and so now what is the likliehood of Sundin winding up w/ the Rangers?
1:03
Spector –  Of course now that there’s no truth to the Gomez rumors, expect the “Drury to be dealt to Vancouver” rumors to start anytime now.
1:03
Spector –  Unless the Rangers dump considerable salary Sundin won’t be a Blueshirt. Simple as that.
1:03
Wyshynski –  Ha! Indeed. And I thonk Drury’s NTC is even more water-tight than Gomez’s.
1:03
Spector –  It sure is!
1:03
Wyshynski –  think, not thonk. Thonk is not a word.

[Comment From Guest]
Why would they trade Gomez to make room for a player that most likely wont last 2 more seaons?
1:04
Spector –  You just answered your own question.
1:04
Wyshynski –  Well, the theory is that the Rangers want to drop salary.
1:04
Spector –  It won’t be Drury or Gomez.
1:04
Wyshynski –  Because, you know, the Rangers always want to drop salary

And here’s some Bruins talk from the trio of bloggers for my Bruins fan friend:

1:16
Wyshynski –  This one is just begging for us to address:

[Comment From Super Dave West]
Who are you prognosticators, and why is there no Bruins talk here?
1:16
Spector –  Because there’s little to write about regarding the B’s
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  Here’s some Bruins talk… their practice facility is in the middle of NO WHERE!
1:17
Spector –  No news is good new ,right?
1:17
DavidPagnotta –  Took me forever to find that place
1:17
Wyshynski –  There’s no Bruins talk because they’re capped out and their coach is zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz … oh, sorry. Nodded off.

It occurred to me that after the Rangers retire Bathgate and Graves’ jerseys, there will be two #9 Ranger jerseys hanging from the ceiling at MSG.  But this will not be the only duplicate retired jersey pairing to hang at MSG.

The 2 #9 jerseys will be across the room from the retired #15 Knicks jerseys of Earl Monroe and Dick McGuire.  Monroe played in the 1970’s and had his number retired in 1986, while McGuire played in the 1950’s but didn’t have his number retired until 1992.

I always thought the Knicks #15 anomaly was one-of-a-kind, but never really looked into it.  Now, two teams that share the same building will have the same unusual retired number situation.  I wonder if there are other teams out there that have the same issue…

Man I’m bored.  Aside from Brendan Shanahan still wanting to be a Ranger and Mats Sundin not being sure of anything, there is absolutely nothing going on.

To pass the time, why not check out some of the links on the right side of the page?  I’ve even sorted them into three different categories for you guys!

One in particular that you should all check out is PolkOut.com.  It has nothing to do with the Rangers or hockey but it’s still pretty freaking hilarious.  GO NOW!

Faux Rumors has been updating pretty frequently and Scotty Hockey has been previewing all the teams in his “NHL Four-cast.”

Anywho, go check out those links and if anything Rangery happens, we’ll let you know about it.
