Earlier this month, I posted that the Rangers have hung a "2011-12 Atlantic Division" banner at MSG. Now Ken Belson and Jeff Klein at the New York Times tell us that despite the banner, the Rangers will not be having a banner raising ceremony if there's a season and that a team spokesman said the Blueshirts have "higher aspirations."
…that is great to hear. The only banner a team should be raising is a Stanley Cup one. Any other and all you're doing is celebrating losing.
