I became a Ranger fan in his last year with the team but grew up with older fans who had great memories of him.
The Gumper was also the author of the all-time, classic Ranger quote, a quote that kind of sums of what is means to be a Ranger fan.
When asked by a reporter, sometime in the late 1950s when he was the Ranger goalie, "What team in the NHL gives you the most trouble?" He replied.....The Rangers."
If you stop an think of it, with a few slack years here and there, we've had a strong trandition of superb goaltenders: Worsley, Giacomin, Davidson, VanBiesbrouck, Richter, Lundquist.
