I LOVE the move by Sather. Ryan will see that The Rangers offer is more than fair.
1 year ago on Cally Doesn't Want to Talk Contract; AV Expects Him in Lineup Tuesday
@BroadwayBlues @eric1940 @tomcurriejr it was posted on this blog administration, that he was going to wear the pinstripes, than about a week or so later, that the Yankees put a stop to it. None of the info was verified by either team. I am assuming the info on this blog is correct. We will find out when the outdoor games go down, as he has posted a pic of Hanks special "outdoor pads."

@tomcurriejr OK tom, please take a breath. First of all, Hank is not going to wear the pin strip pads. So it is not even going to happen. The Yankees gave it a thumbs down. Second, Hank auctions the gear off after the games for charity, and as a Mets fan myself, it hurts to admit it, but the truth is the truth... Yankee stuff will bring a higher value than the Mets colors. Third, one of their opponents have orange and blue as their main colors. Would look pretty silly if The Ranger keeper had Islander pads. Lastly, the game is AT Yankee Stadium, not City Field. This really was not a swipe at The Mets at all. Please remember, this opinion, mixed with fact is coming from a life long, die hard Mets fan. LGR!
This is further evidence, to me at least, that Hank will not be a Ranger next year. If he will not sign for 6 years or less, at 6.5ish a year, he will not be worth the cost in this salary cap era. And you know what folks, we can lose 1-0 with or without Hank.

Good point pkh. I have not seen a pic of the mask that shows the inside. It is likely that the inside of the cage is white, and the outside bars are painted red. That is how Jon Vanbiesbrook had his painted when he was in Florida. Just a thought, I am not sure how Talbot has his.
Lifelong Ranger fan living in Southern California. Going to The Garden for the first time since the renovation in December. On TV, it would seem your observations on the lack of "electricity" are correct. The cost of a game is crazy as well. To pay about $100 for "non premium" seating is a price I don't think I am willing to pay more than once a year or so. On the positive side, it appears we will have a brand new Garden in about 10 years anyway. Wouldn't it be nice if Dolan got out of sports, and let a someone with a clue run the show?!

Man I wish Joe Micheletti would just shut up, and go away. Bring Dave Maloney into the booth with Sam. That should have been the no brainer call a few years back. They can still fix the mistake of bringing in an Islander guy. Never too late to do the right thing.

I LOVE the effort from this entire team lately. If they can either replace Nash, or better yet, have the Big Nashty come back and be the player he once was... LOOK OUT!

As well as Richards has played this year, he has to be bought out. He simply makes too much money. If he were not so expensive, perhaps he could end his career in N.Y. This will be the last chance to buy him out. If they keep him, The Rangers will be on the hook for a 6.6 mill cap hit every year till 2020. The Rangers have to ask themselves, "do I want to have a 6.6 mill cap hit for a 40 year has been?" Nothing personal if they buy him out, just business. If this were 15 years ago with no salary cap, there would be little downside in keeping him. That was then, this is today's reality.
@Betweentheworlds This platform, by its nature, fosters our opinions. The author of the blog gives his, I give mine, you give yours. If you chose to think I am wrong, that is your right. Personally, I feel it is highly unlikely that Nash will come back. You are more hopeful. Good for you.

Hopefully we can stay in the hunt until another team is ready to dump a top sniper near the trade deadline. Then, Sather will finally put Nash on LTI (he ain't coming back people) and round out the offense.
@iwantgaborik @eric1940 I think I am misunderstanding. What exactly has changed? The song after a goal, or after a win? Flying out from Cali to a game in December. Very excited! LETS GO RANGERS!

Isn't the "Rangers Victory Song" the same one they have used for the past few years?
