Around the entire US?

The Flyers and Avs don't have nearly as huge followings as the Habs, Wings, Rangers, and Leafs have.

The Leafs have the biggest following in all of hockey.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think the Rangers still need to upgrade the defense..whether that means just adding one or swapping one...Can;t say I have much faith in Rachunek for top 6 or Pock/Richter for the depth spots.....That being said, Tanabe isn;t the guy....Vishnevski would be ..Hope the Rangers keep looking..

You never have too many Ds. Young, good skater with some lack of hockey sense in Poti mold? I'd take him. It could be coaching issue. I never dislike Poti, he was quite adequate in here. If only Mike York hasn't been given for him...

Sorry man, I normally agree with you, but given Tanabe's track record, we need to just STAY AWAY!!!

with the rangers being on the low end of it.

the teams with greater attendance, on average than the rangers:

montreal, tampa, detroit, philly, ottawa, toronto calgary vancouver minnesota and colorado.

Advice. If you sign Leetch back too, tell your coach that Tanabe and Leetch were the worst defensive pairing in the NHL last year.

I can see a Tanabe/Leetch reunion in NY happening soon

I suppose it would be sound advice, but if Leetch were signed there is no way Tanabe would also be signed, so it's a moot point.
