Entries with the tag: off-season
With hockey season right around the corner, I figured that now was a good time to reach out to Scotty from Scotty Hockey to see what his thoughts are regarding the off-season for the New York Rangers.
Scotty was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions regarding the Blueshirts and how they’ve done heading into the new season.
PH: Overall, how do you think the Rangers’ did this off-season? Why?
SH: The Rangers did fine this offseason, to date. I qualify that due to Marc Staal still being unsigned at the moment. They didn’t give Ilya Kovalchuk a 17 year deal and they got rid of Donald Brashear. Sure, they outright lied to us by saying that the kids in the system would get a chance to break in to the roster and then went out and added Biron, Frolov, White, Boogaard and Eminger. But they got rid of Donald Brashear. Did I mention that already? Well it was worth mentioning twice. Or three times - they got rid of Donald Brashear. Sure the contract given to the Boogeyman was ludicrous of Reddien proportions but Brashear will never wear a Blueshirt again. Losing Jody Shelley to free agency while adding Boogey could very well hurt the team in the locker room and on the ice but ... you guessed it, no more Brashear. I’m clearly quite pleased with that.
