I’m on vacation the rest of the week, but the Rangers have confirmed that “Petr Nedved will be invited to training camp”:http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/hockey/rangers/blog/, saying that there is no commitment on their end to give him a roster spot.
A couple of quick thoughts:
2. Are tickets selling that poorly for the Prague games?
3. As long as there really is no commitment to sign him—and we’ll have to see how that part holds up—it probably can’t hurt. Think back to the surreal Dave Scatchard appearance last year at the MSG Training Center. It’s a free look at a guy who might be able to help them. But if it doesn’t, the Rangers can just say no thanks.
Personally, I don’t see where Nedved fits in. But it sounds like he was the one who reached out to the Rangers, and the team is just paying him a courtesy.
