Awesome. He's my girlfriend's favorite Ranger so I'll have a ridiculous amount of brownie points banked if she can get her Lundqvist jersey signed. Probably will head to the Flying Puck bar after the autographs and before the game. Heard some good things.

Thank you.
It's cute that you try to tell other people what to do, but I'd like to think that the players have free will, and can easily tell the autograph seekers that they're "not signing today".

Thank you.

I don't see the point your trying to make. If they don't want to sign then they don't have too. And I'm pretty sure if they choose to sign, signing autographs real quick for a minute outside isn't gonna affect the way they prepare for the game at all. Sure didn't have an impact Wednesday in an important game.

Its the last and most important home game of the season, you had enough chances this year to get your trinkets signed, leave them alone its as obvious as the nose on your face that these guys need to focus for the game. Less hassle the better once they get to the garden.

Thanks

I'll be there for it too and Hank comes in at 4 Penn around 4:30ish, usually a little earlier. Just hang out at that entrance and you'll definitely get him.
main entrance meaning like through security that checks bags right before the game?

Again, if they don't wanna sign all they have to say is they don't want too. And if you think that something as minuscule as this is going to effect them then I don't know what to tell you. I happened to be around MSG last home game of the year last year when it was another must win situation and I saw them signing stuff before the game. Didn't seem to effect them too much looking at the outcome.

My girlfriend absolutely loves Dubi, Del Zotto, and Lundqvist. On different occasions she has referred to them as her "husbands" haha...I get a kick out of it.

Funny story: After the Colorado game last year when we dominated them 6-1 (I believe it was Torts' first win at the Garden), my girlfriend and I waited outside the employee entrance for autographs. Sure enough, Lundqvist comes out first. We were the first ones on the guardrail and he went right over to us. Obviously, I'm pretty excited, and ask him to sign the game day magazine I bought that night. As he's doing this, my girlfriend stands in absolute shock, not knowing what to do or say. She decides to touch his suit jacket from his forearm down to his wrist in somewhat of a petting motion.

Afterwards, I go to her, "Why didn't you say anything, even something simple like 'good game'? Then she proceeded to tell me that she didn't know what to do, so she just touched his suit jacket. HAHA, ridiculous.

I also met Blair Betts that night and got his autograph. Really nice guy.

Enough, this is about where and how to gain autographs, and nothing else.

Haven't seen this posted in here, so I figured I would add it. It's the official NHL store where you can buy legit photo prints, separated by team/player. Lots of great stuff on here. Great resource for autograph seekers.

Alright, so I've never really been big on stalking the players before or after games but I've decided that the next time I get tickets it would be great if I could track down Dubinsky for just a second so my girlfriend could shake his hand and have him sign her jersey. She's been a tremendous fan since his rookie season and over the years I've started a little Dubinksy autograph collection for her, including a signed 8x10 or puck or something as a small part of her gift for each major holiday. This year I think it would be cool if she could get the signature in person so I was wondering if Dubinsky still goes in at 4 Penn and if the time is still around 4:30 for a 7pm game. Any info on how you can catch Dubi entering the garden would be appreciated.

Not sure if it's changed at all, but as far as i can recall, Aves just walks right by everyone on his way in. Very rarely does he stop for autographs before a game. I've heard he can be really nice afterwards, but have also heard that he's just a jerk too... I have not had any personal experiences so all I know is second hand.

Yea so I've heard . I've had a gamer that I would like to get signed . So I figured it can't hurt . Do you know where he leaves from after a game ?

They are, but if you know you can grab a player outside the arena, or are going to a signing, it's worth the extra $7-8 for a unique photo you won't see often anywhere else, IMO.

For those who still don't know where to get autos, to me it's a lot easier to wait after the game to get them depending on who you want. Guys like Hank, Avery, Gabs and Vinny P. go out through the parking lot on the side of MSG and mostly everyone else i've seen (Boyle, Staal, Stepan, Dubinsky, Cally, and MZA now too) go out through the front entrance.

I know and heard alot of die hard New Yorkers, and some outta staters, come before and after games to get the players autographs. I am coming to the next Rangers home game from school in Boston and I was just wondering where and what time Derek Stepan comes in to the Garden so i can get him to sign my jersey. I would really appreciate the help. Go Rags!

Wait by the parking lot (where players can drive in) from around 4-4:30 just to be safe. He should be in by 4:15 though.

Sorry I get confused with the streets, but it's the one that's actually connected to MSG, by the security booths. I believe it's on 33rd, smack in the middle between 7th and 8th.

Assuming you wanted to meet some players...

sorry if this has already been asked but i'm interested in potentially meeting some of the Rangers before a game. if anyone could help me out, that'd be lovely. i just wanna know how long before the game i'd have to be there. and i'm certain i know where to go to wait for them...

again, if anyone could help me with that, that'd be wonderful. thank you.
