It was a year ago today we lost a good man. RIP to Derek boogaard and may his family stay strong on this hard day for them. Its great to see our rangers do so well and I just hope that we all remember why they have the #94 sticker on their helmets and their hard work has made boogie proud.
RIP big guy its still a very sad situation. I am still extremely angry that MSG did very little in terms of a tribute or a commemoration for him it was a big FU to his family. However Im not gonna get into politics, he was a guy that wore the sweater proudly, loved this team, wanted us the fans to adore him (thats why he chose 94 as his number) and was a guy that gave it his all, rip big guy.

Me too. After watching charlie460's video from Minnesota again (I've seen it many times and it's still very emotional), I can't believe The Rangers only did something during a TV timeout ("apparently", since I've never seen it). Shame they couldn't do something to honor the man appropriately. They wear the #94 in his honor, but couldn't give us fans some sort of video memorial. Very messed up.
Thank you NYR Lunchbox for bringing attention to the one year anniversary. Very sad indeed. RIP Derek, may your family have found peace.
Glad to bring it up. The loss of boogie really struck close to home for me and I made sure to remember. I changed my jersey number to 94 last year in tribute and always wear my boogie memorial shirt. Just glad he was a proud ranger and gave us some great memories, my his soul rest and his memory inspire
