Original Post:
Although brief, newest Ranger Rick Nash did join Boomer & Carton on WFAN 660AM in New York this morning for a few minutes to talk about the trade.

  • Judging from his comments, New York was the only place Rick Nash wanted to go. He recognizes the team they have and how close they are to winning a Cup. It’s refreshing to hear great players wanting to come here for a chance at winning, not because of money.


Yesterday, the Rangers announced their preseason schedule—which all hinges on the season starting on time. Here’s the complete list:


Date                                 Opponent            Site&Time
Wednesday, Sept. 26    New Jersey     Albany, 7:00 PM
Friday, Sept. 28            New Jersey     Newark,  7:00 PM
Saturday, Sept. 29        Philadephia      Philadelphia, 7:00 PM
Thursday, Oct. 4           NY Islanders   Uniondale, 7:00 PM
Saturday, Oct. 6           Colorado        Kansas City, Mo. 8:00 PM
Monday, Oct. 8             Los Angeles    Los Angeles, 10:30 PM 

  • The NHL is warming up Kansas City for hockey again to prepare for the Islanders move in 2015. I kid I kid (not really).


Finally, for all the Dubinsky lovers, it seems as if Mike Rupp will be wearing number 17 next season. There was a conversation between the two on Twitter the other day, but seems to have disappeared *hmm.* Although, if you check out Rupp’s Twitter handle, it has gone from Rupper71 to Rupper17.

  • Conspiracy theories I tell you!
