Here's a snippet...
Five years ago, we made it our priority to build the New York Rangers team for long-term success by developing a core foundation of young players and adding key veterans as our youngsters matured. Our philosophy remains steadfast, and this past season, six young players whose NHL careers began here in New York played major roles in taking us to the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year.
A few years ago, I brought up a few players from the farm system (in this case, six), surrounded them with overpriced, underachieving veterans, and prayed for Henrik Lundqvist to play well. Except for Jagr. That guy was awesome. Especially that one year when he scored 54 goals. Too bad he destroyed his shoulder punching Scott Gomez in the playoffs. Speaking of which, he’s a Ranger! And I signed Chris Drury too! That was awesome.
...its amazing how blinded GMs and owners are by greed. Have the Dolans and Sather seen all the empty seats at the new Yankee Stadium and Citi Field? What a joke.
