You’re on your own today …
Forty-one days until Opening Night.
I see a lot of you jumped the gun with Tom Seaver, the obvious one, plus the Jed Ortmeyers and Eddie Mios.
41: Jake Gibbs.
41: Steve “The General” Richmond … one of my favorite Rangers from the bad old days.

Just got this from the NYR:
NEW YORK RANGERS GOALTENDER HENRIK LUNDQVIST HONORED IN GRAY LINE NEW YORK’S “RIDE OF FAME” CAMPAIGN
On Tuesday August 31st, Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will join the ranks of Whoopi Goldberg, Donald Trump and Rachael Ray as the latest celebrity inducted into Gray Line New York’s “Ride of Fame” campaign which honors exemplary New Yorkers by bestowing a bus in their fleet. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil Lundqvist’s personalized Gray Line New York bus will take place on 7th Avenue in front of Madison Square Garden at 12:00 p.m. Immediately following the ceremony, Henrik will board his very own bus to take the inaugural ride with 50 lucky fans.
“I’d like to thank Gray Line New York for their support of the Rangers and particularly their continued support of the Garden of Dreams Foundation,” says Lundqvist. “The kids always look forward to the tours of the city, sitting on the upper deck. Being able to now do them on a bus featuring myself and the Rangers is a great honor.”
After the event, the official Henrik Lundqvist bus will enter into Gray Line New York’s regular rotation, becoming a mobile monument, granting millions of sightseers the opportunity to “ride” along with him each day.
