Training camp opens tomorrow, and at this very moment John Tortorella is meeting with his good friends in the media. Unfortunately, I’m not there, so I suggest checking the Rangers’ site and some of the other familiar spots to see and/or hear what Torts said. Then, as always, please come back home to discuss.
Steve Zipay is reporting today, via twitter, that Jim Schoenfeld will remain as one of the assistant coaches. It was believed Schoenfeld would not coach again. But he will continue his dual-roles as assistant GM/assistant coach.
The Dany Heatley fiasco continued overnight, as ESPN reported a three-way deal with Los Angeles, San Jose and Ottawa. Then it was fiercely denied that there is any truth whatsoever to the deal. So he remains in play. Too bad. I thought we might finally be able to put the Heatley talk behind us.
Some of you got the news first last night that Kyle McLaren, the camp invitee, was injured. Today it’s apparently official that he will not be at camp.
