Rangers Depend On Comeback Players

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,

Rangers trio leads trend of comeback players in 2005. One thing that makes Jagr happy in New York is his teammates -- especially Michael Nylander and Martin Straka.

Nylander's puck-possession passing game -- his career assist-to-goal ratio is well over 2:1 -- buys time until Jagr springs free. The pair spent the 2002-03 together in Washington, so the familiarity factor was something the Rangers were counting on.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from USA Hockey, Darin Erstad, a first baseman with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, certainly made the right choice in deciding to chase his baseball dreams, but he still believes he could have made a go of it in hockey. “It takes a different breed of athlete to play hockey,” said Erstad. “But I’d like to think I would have had some fun and would have played the game pretty well. I don’t know if my skills would have helped me make the NHL, but I think I would have fit in just right.” read on image

Those who attend Charles Biname's magnificent film, Maurice Richard, will see that the Canadiens defenceman indeed found a way.
