557 Brandon Dubin$ky isn’t going anywhere

You guys surprise me sometimes. Yesterday Larry Brooks wrote that Brandon Dubinsky is seeking $4.5M per for multi-years and that he won’t get it from Glen Sather, and that a comparable player just signed for four years at $4M per. And immediately some of you guys said “bye-bye” to Dubinsky,…

102 Rangers recall Kris Newbury

I’m wondering if Ruslan Fedotenko might be hurt, or somebody else. Or if they just want a fresh body with some jam against the Bruins. Though I am guessing the Rangers had to have an injury to make this move. —————– Just had an interesting thought about Zuccarello’s demotion. If…
