Thursday, December 12th is the first Rangers/Blue Jackets game at MSG. It's going to be a sort of home coming for many players that were once Rangers.
Kinda crazy how many players on that team were once Rangers. This is a top game on my list of games to look forward to next season. Imagine a Rangers/Jackets playoff series.
What kind of feel will the Rangers and Jackets games have? Is it going to be a new rivalry spawned? Or will there be too much respect between former team mates for that to really happen?

We have quite the Columbus lineup too:
And the ghost of Nikolay Zherdev still hauntingly walks the back aisles of MSG wondering why Torts was yelling at him constantly...
One question - will Kerby Rychel ever get to see NHL ice?
If we still would have gotten the pick I would´ve loved to have seen Michael McCarron, Jacob de la Rose or Marko Daňo wearing true blue...
Chances are the Blue Jacks will have more motivation at Madision Square Garden. I'm sure Dubinsky, Arty and Co. will come out flying. And since both teams are in the same conference, who wins matters more now. The Rangers will need to take this game seriously--Columbus won't be an easy team to beat.
I hope the crowd gives these guys a warm reception...Dubi, Artie and Gabby certainly deserve it for their service to the team the last several years.
And then I hope we crush them.
Exactly how I feel, minus Anisimov. I never really liked him. I liked his personality, though.

I don't think it's that big of a deal. I do miss Tyutin though. He was a nice steady player who always showed up to play. I was a Dubinsky fan too, but he priced himself out with that 4+million contract. Unfortunately he seemed to regress on a better club.
