So much for that fantasy story about the kid picked up on waivers and suddenly becoming a first-line center.
Hey, we all knew that was as much of a pipedream as it was an indictment of the Rangers’ lack of skill when Erik Christensen moved up to the penthouse. Tonight he’s back to the outhouse, deservedly so. He’s prucha’d along with Ales (I did not request a trade) Kotalik.
For whatever reason, Donald Brashear is back in. Well, actually, the reason is that changes have to be made after those two humiliations and the Rangers, because they don’t have anybody better and don’t have the cap space to keep an additional extra body around, had two choices: Brashear, or (IDNRAT) Kotalik . Sad.
Worse, you all get to enjoy the dreadful call of cliche-machine Joe Beninati on Versus — the On Versus part a mandatory ending to every other sentence he utters. God forbid. And look out below for Michael Rupp, who flew under the Crosby radar and dropped three bombs on the Rangers earlier this season.
