"Seriously. Swarovski crystals on a hockey shirt? What kind of game are you attending?" -Risa

This year, the NHL unleashed a new line of women’s clothing that, in my opinion, should all be burned. I know for a fact that most women would rather wear an actual jersey than one of these terribly ugly pink or baby blue jerseys.

Long time reader Risa gives her two cents:

The new pink/blue/sparkly jerseys make me want to bash someones head in. The very idea that women don’t want ot wear their team colors is insulting. The colors are there for a reason, they’re supposed to be something to have pride in. Pink and blue makes you a generic fan, not a fan of your team. Why do all female things ahve to be shiny/sparkly/pink or even “cut for a female form?” Just give us the same [gosh darned] clothes as the men in [smaller] sizes! Many of us would be very, very grateful.

It just seems to me that if you’re going to wear sports stuff, shouldn’t you wear it in your teams’ colors? Yes. I have a green Bruins hat (but at least it was a free giveaway for st. patrick’s day).

The team colors are there for a reason so you might as well make use of them. And honestly, what do pink and baby blue have to do with hockey? Nada. (Ed. Note: ) Make womens clothing that is relevant to being a sports fan because we’ll wear it.

I get it, the NHL is trying to broaden its fan base. They’re trying to market themselves to the girly-girls. But honestly, the only girly-girls that are coming to games are being dragged there by their boyfriends. Plus, true female hockey fans wont cover their eyes and scream in horror every time this happens:

Maybe this is part of the reason they are trying to minimize fighting in the league. Which brings up the question of why would the NHL be trying to soften the game of hockey, and in turn alienating the traditional hockey fan, in order to pull in a demographic that, frankly, doesn’t care?

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.
1:15
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!!!!!!
1:16
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.
1:03
[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.

Now that the Bruins have completed their season with a loss to the Sabres, they finish with 94 points. That means that the Rangers cannot finish lower than 5th place. The Rangers will open the playoffs against the Devils regardless of the outcome of tomorrow’s game. The only question left unanswered is which team will have home ice advantage. A win in regulation for the Rangers gets them 4th place and home ice advantage for at least the first round. With any other outcome tomorrow, the Rangers will open the playoffs in New Jersey.
