Then they proceed to do 10 minutes on LeBron James, about whom I frankly don't give a damn. It's so frustrating being a big time hockey fan in NY.
Couldn't agree more--all the talk in N.Y is about LeBron LeBron LeBron which we know he is not coming here so maybe Dolan pony's up some of coin he was willing to spend on LeBron and wants to make a splash in FA in hockey and signs Kovy.
8 million for Kovy
6.5 to dump Redden in Hartford(maybe swing a deal with the Russian owner of the Nets to have Redden play in KHL).
Total of 14.5 million which is still cheaper then if they signed LeBron.
Works for most Ranger fans.
Anyway happy July 1st(Fa day--Ranger give away day).
