So here’s the Rangers response to the league’s efforts to jettison the Dolans.
“Not surprisingly, the NHL is once again proving why an independent judge must address our claims. Despite trying to resolve our differences privately, the League has responded with excessive fines and now threats that have nothing to do with the merits of our position. Every American citizen or business has a right to go to court and have its dispute heard by an impartial judge. The NHL shouldn’t be afraid of the judicial system. We will pursue our case vigorously and will not be intimidated by the NHL’s bullying tactics.”
Granted, a lot of this is posturing, and frankly, I don’t know how any of this really effects the average fan.
I suppose if the Dolans really were ousted, that would be newsworthy. I’ll be sure to let you know, if only because at that point, the Rangers might be playing their home games at Chelsea Piers.
