I’m back, back in a New York groove.
Spent the last week with the Europansies in a beautiful little country called Ireland. If you’ve never been—and I hadn’t—put it on your list.
Now, what did I miss?
I see that Martin Biron re-signed for two more years. Good for him. Good for the Rangers. Not surprised there at all, though I had read—in my rare moments on the web—that Philly was considering making a bid on Biron if he’d gotten to July 1.
I see that free agent Justin Schultz—who is obviously going directly to the Hall of Fame according to some—will make his decision today, and that it’s either New York or Canada.
And I see that, unless I missed something, Zach Parise is still unsigned by the Devils, and so will probably hit the market tomorrow when all hell breaks loose. I still think J.P.’s kid will be in play for the Rangers, his little smiling denial on breakup day notwithstanding.
Should be an interesting, albeit sweltering, hockey weekend.
Good to be back.
