Ranger Fans Warming to Brashear?

From Seth Rothman at Inside Hockey:

Rangers fans wasted no time letting Donald Brashear know they’re still not over the hit that leveled former Ranger Blair Betts during last year’s Conference Quarterfinals.

In fact, when Brashear was introduced Wednesday night at a Rangers Fan Fest event in the lobby of The Theater at Madison Square Garden by emcee Dave Maloney, he was received by a mix of boos and cheers. Brashear quickly attempted to quell the uprising when he reached the stage.

“Enough booing,” Brashear said. “I’ll take you all one by one.”

Predictably—and perhaps intelligently, the boos changed to cheers and laughter, and the fans seemed to warm to Brashear’s self-deprecating humor as the hour-long event went on.
