UPDATE: The Rangers are dismissing as “pure speculation” an ESPN Radio report that says the team is going to announce the move tomorrow.
Madison Square Garden has an announcement scheduled for Thursday about partnering with Aviator Sports for a new Chelsea Piers-type sports complex at Floyd Bennett Field in South Brooklyn.
Whether this means the Rangers are moving their AHL team there from Hartford remains to be seen, although it could well be a possibility.
For the Rangers, the biggest change out of that is how coaches threaten their players. Instead of saying a struggling player could be on the next bus out of town, he’d be in the next cab.
Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, does it?
