Credit goes to my man Dubi “over at Blueshirt Bulletin”:http://ordinaryleastsquare.typepad.com/blueshirtbulletin/ for “spotting this link”:http://www.expressen.se/sport/ishockey/1.737654 to a Swedish newspaper that quotes Michael Nylander saying he expects to re-sgn with the Rangers in the next few days.
This, of course, is welcome news to Rangers fans, although not entirely surprising if it’s true. Even if this is the free agent center’s one chance to cash in and provide for his six kids (and potentially the six more kids to follow), I still have a hard time imagining him in a better situation than he has alongside Jaromir Jagr and Marty Straka in New York.
Throw in the fact that Nylander’s kids are immersed in the Greenwich, Conn., youth hockey leagues, and leaving would be difficult.
But we’ll see for ourselves once the i’s are crossed and t’s are dotted. Or the other way around. You know what I mean…
