ICYMI (in case you missed it) or were too lazy to click on the giant video up above (sarcasm), Marc Staal spoke Thursday about his expectation that he will be ready for the start of training camp and for the season — he’s skating with teammates in unofficial practices, wearing a long blue visor.
Here’s my short story on Staal from The Journal News and lohud.com today. Click here.
Also, a quick upate. The Rangers report to training camp Wednesday, but that will just be for physicals and there won’t be any player access that day. So Thursday will be the first day on ice with new coach Alain Vigneault and his new staff, and the first day of reporting. I will be there both Thursday and Friday.
