Since he went to St. Louis, it's like he dropped of the face of the earth.
And no, I don't think the Rangers will do anything to honor JD, and that's not meant as a diss or anything. It just seems like the attitude is, he left and we all said our goodbyes and that's that. Having said that, I'd love it if they did do something. Kind of like Old Home Week.
Pure speculation on my part but:
I'm not sure that JD left on the best terms. They showed an intereview with him before the season started and he was getting choked up about what the Garden meant to him, what the Rangers meant to him and how much the job meant to him. I'm not saying he was forced out but I do think that he might have felt he had to leave.
There were several quotes attributed to former Garden employees in the SI article on Lil' Jimmy that I could have seen JD being the source of.
