major surprises ehh?
After being cleared to play earlier today by doctors, the New York Rangers have signed veteran RW Pavel Bure to a 1 year, 6M contract to return to Broadway and replace the hole left by Jaromir Jagr, who signed a 4 year deal to return to the Washington Capitols.
Filling the hole left by UFA super pest Sean Avery, the New York Rangers today announced they have come to terms with veteran Theoren Fleury. This will be Fleury's second stop in Manhattan after losing his mind during the first.
Seeking some veteran help between the pipes, the New York Rangers didn't have to look far. Only up. President and General Manager Glen Sather today announced that the team has come to an agreement with Rangers Legend Mike Richter to back up Henrik Lundquist through the 08/09 campaign. The move comes after last season's backup, 6 foot 6 Stephen Valiquette left the team to take on an assistant coach role with the New York Islanders. "We've been talking to Mike the past few weeks after watching what Chris Osgood was able to do with Detroit.. He says he feels good. And we feel good having an established winning goaltender in net to help ease the workload off of Hank" Sather stated over the phone when contacted.
