This just in… according to Larry Brooks, Wade Redden will be put on waivers at noon.
Which means he’ll clear. Which will then allow the Rangers to demote him and his cap hit to the Wolf Pack, soon to be the Whale.
Wonder if that means he’ll play tonight in case anybody wants to see him.
Whatever, it’s the first step in what was obviously inevitable since the end of last season.
Today’s a football Saturday, so I won’t be around … and I don’t even know if I’ll be able to put up the rosters for tonight’s game at Newark, 7 p.m., on MSG. Maybe. Not promising.
Though I’m sure the key guys who didn’t play Thursday will play tonight: Lundqvist, Callahan, Del Zotto, Avery, Anisimov, Gilroy, Prospal, not to mention Redden, and I’d guess that Grachev will play tonight.
Fourteen days until the Opener.
14: Lou Piniella, Bill “Moose” Skowron.
14: Y.A. Tittle, Fred Biletnikoff, Dan Fouts.
Completely unrelated, and borderline jibberish (or gibberish), a friend of the blog sent this along. Don’t know how many of youse were into the Honeymooners, but yours truly was better at reciting Honeymooners lines than Seinfeld lines once upon a time.
Will have a new blank thread at game time.
