Nothing is guaranteed, but I would like to believe that these 2 producing & the goaltending performing at high levels are now officially the least of our concerns.

Before St. Louis acquired him, the NY Post had a photoshopped picture of Gretzky in Ranger uniform on their backpage. It was thought that he'll go to NY and not St. Louis.

After the Blues got him, the rumors were still rife that Gretzky will be coming to NY. When the summer came, it was widely expected that he'll sign with the Rangers. There was more surprise when Brad signed here than when TGO did.
