Live from New/Other Yankee Stadium (ugh), it’s Rangers Report. Woohoo.
Just looking ahead:
Tuesday afternoon, the Hockey Hall of Fame announces its Class of ‘10. Among the first-year eligible candidates are: Eric Lindros, John LeClair, Peter Bondra (slam dunk, right?), Tony Amonte, Matthew Barnaby (what???), Joe Nieuwendyk, Scott Mellanby, Fredrik Olausson, Mike Ricci, Pierre Turgeon and three goalies who, no disrespect meant, shouldn’t get a sniff: Sean Burke, Tommy Salo and Arturs Irbe.
Lindros is by far the most intriguing candidate, isn’t he?
Wednesday night is the NHL awards show, and that’s all I’m going to say about it. Not promoting anything that involves a sellout to Las Vegas and features Snoop Dogg. Sorry.
Friday and Saturday are the NHL entry draft, and as we mentioned in an earlier post, the Rangers will host a first-round party Friday night.
