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.
