Laurie Carr at Beyond the Blueshirts adds that Bardin is hoping past relationship with Glen Sather and presence of Jagr will help sway leagues to send Rangers to Omsk for exhibition game next fall.
Omsk GM Bardin, while saying he’d love #NYR to play in Omsk next fall, makes clear negotiations are strictly between NHL & KHL, not clubs
Rangers are one of six teams asked to start the 2011-12 season in Europe.
…if the NHL could make this happen I would be pretty pumped and change my stance (against) on the Rangers starting the season across the pond.
