According to Katie Strang over at ESPNNY.com, Rangers owner James Dolan was asked for comment surrounding the on and off CBA talks during the New York Rangers dog walk today.
“The only thing I can say is that I want us to play hockey.”
Ms. Strang went on to say that Glen Sather when reached for comment, is “optimistic” the two sides can work something out in time.
- Perhaps this is just wishful thinking, but I hope that Rangers ownership is willing to sacrifice a little money for themselves to win a Stanley Cup in the next year or two. The Rangers might be asked to give up quite a bit as far as revenue sharing is concerned to ensure the well being of the league for the long term. Luckily Dolan isn’t taking the hard-line position of ‘no hockey until the league get their unilateral demands.’ My optimism for an 82 game is slowly returning as long as the two sides continue to talk.
