The Rangers need to play a game here pretty soon, if for no other reason than to eliminate the meaningless rhetoric spouted around the team’s locker room.
Not that I’m blaming anyone. If I had to sit and wait five days for the next game, I’d be spewing out the same “No, really, this break is good a thing” line as everyone else. And I really do think the Rangers believe it seeing how it’s allowing certain players to get healthy. But it’s still a relatively mundane topic.
Meanwhile, some news:
I also asked Marcel if he’d like to see Marian come to play for the Rangers next season.
“It’s not my business to control,” Marcel said.
Yes, I’m aware of that. This reminds me of Saturday, when I asked Staal if he’d like to see Stephen Valiquette start again in the wake of his shutout against the Flyers.
“It’s not up to me,” the rookie said.
Yes, again, I realize that Marc Staal and Marcel Hossa are not running the whole operation around here.
I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing.
