Rangers fans are really seriously talking about hoping the Rangers buy out Brad Richards. I saw an article by Larry Brooks yesterday that also talked about it. What a mess that team is right now, not only with injuries but when your big guys aren't playing well and taking up a lot of cap space, that's a disaster.
So what you're saying is they've reverted back to the Rangers in the early 2000's?
Of course if the return were right I'd move him anywhere, it's just not ideal that it's to a division rival. However if Pittsburgh offered up Crosby for Couturier... you'd need to be a real dummy not to take it.

I loved hearing Gretzky talk about loving the Flyers growing up and perpetuating the story of how The Great One established his "Office" by watching Bobby Clarke do it.
Why do you suppose Gretzky was there? If there is any other reason besides taking in a Flyers game in Philadelphia and keeping in touch with old friends and opponents on the ice
TSN said it was a corporate appearance for TD Bank.
Gretzky was so good he knew what you were going to do before you did.
I read an article posted in the History section, where the author talked to a defensman (who I can't recall) about defending Gretzky. He told a story about Gretzky setting up in his office; he tried to block the pass, and set his skate against the post. Gretzky passed it through the skate to set up a goal. After the game the defenseman sat down with his skate, and slotted a puck through. It barely fit. He said this was a routine occurrence, and Gretzky ended up using the same trick on him a few times; if you gave him the tiniest hole to work with, you were getting beaten more often than not.
