Miracle on 34th Street?

Now before anyone starts licking their chops, let's reiterate that these could just be rumors. However, the word seems to be in circulation that Sathers job could be in jeopardy and the deciding factor could be a loss to the fishsticks tonight. After being ripped to shreds by The Hockey News last week, it appears things may be actually sinking in. As has been uncovered before on this site by the Dark Ranger himself....Despite the cover, it seems falling ticket sales have MSG sales reps begging season subscribers to take more tickets and scratching at the door of everyone whos ever been on the list. Perhaps as a fan base we are wising up and with a little help of a tight economy, are demanding more bang for our buck. After years of wishing, pleading, writing letters, it appears the old saying still holds true.. MONEY TALKS and BULL$HIT WALKS. Is this too good to be true though.

Only time and perhaps a loss will tell. Aside from the numerous fan sites and Ranger community boards, the rumor has also been on the lips of MSG employees like Boomer Esiason. It's still a rumor at this point, so....Take it with a grain of salt, if he's still here after tonight, add the lime and Tequila.

Now Santa, can we talk about the other things on my list?


  1. 1) Its high time Slats was put out to pasture! Sadly it sounds like his replacement could be worse; Mark Messier.
    2) Its too bad they didn't retain Don Maloney. It looks like he's doing a nice job in the desert.

  2. Faux,

    I hear you on that. If it all comes down to it, I was hoping Schoeney would step in and do a good job.

    Can you imagine the trade deadline phonecalls? "A 2 prospects and a 1st rounder?.. yeah.. keep dreaming, b*tch.." Click

  3. Maloney is having the last laugh based on this season. Wonder how Gretzky feels as well...? LOL.

Any offer of 'tickets at cost' is exactly that -- I have season tickets and will sell them for what I paid --- so no mark-ups.
