Esa Tikkanen, meanwhile, is pursuing a $1 million grievance claim against the Rangers for having been placed on waivers and subsequently assigned to Hartford midway through the 1998-99 season even though he was suffering at the time from a knee injury that required surgery. The Garden, which apparently disregarded NHL rules pertaining to third medical opinions in this instance and are thus believed likely to lose the case, want to win badly enough that former GM Neil Smith, blamed by ownership and the current regime for everything that has gone wrong the last four years, was summoned to testify on behalf of the club in an arbitration hearing last week.
