10 Rangers Show Up For Informal Skate

Yesterday, Henrik Lundqvist, Chris Kreider, Derick Brassard, Mats Zuccarello, J.T. Miller, Ryan Haggerty, Kevin Hayes and Marek Hrivik were among the 10 Rangers who took part in an informal practice at the MSG Training Facility.

…aaaaaaaaaaaaand, I’m fully aroused.

…as excited as I am to see a guy like JT Miller taking part in the informal practice is how disappointed I am about Nash not participating. Yep, preseason hasn’t even started and I’m already in mid-season Nash bashing mode.

…in all seriousness, if Nash feels rest is what he and his brain needed this offseason then I’ll fully support that, but after the way his postseason ended last year it would have been a nice statement to make by attending yesterday’s practice. 

…with AV’s criticisms of Miller’s dedication last season, it’s very encouraging to see the 21-year old already making a solid impression.

…btw, how awesome is it to see Henrik Lundqvist, who’s one of the biggest stars in the NHL, participating in a meaningless informal practice? Mad respect for that guy.

After the informal practice, Hayes spoke to Jim Cerny about his thoughts on becoming a Ranger…

…damn, that kid is huge.
