I miss those days, when I was naive enough at age 9 or 10 to actually think the Rangers had a shot at the Cup every year!

All in the Family was a huge show at the time JD was playing, and everyone used to refer to JD as Meathead. The resemblance was so-so, but at the time it was funny.

Would be nice if JD became our GM but it sounds like his hearts in St.Louis. Even after all those years in NYC.

I'm sure they'll do the whole teary and sappy video tribute, which will be cool and well deserved but "JD" banner in the rafters would really be awesome. maybe even the 00 up there, since it can't be worn any longer. I'm 23 and growing up as a rangers fan JD was a huge part of the experience. Him leaving was almost as tough to take as Leetch or graves being traded..he's a huge part of the past 2 decades of rangers history.

Knee and back issues forced him to retire. His knees were basically chop meat when he retired.

Yeah, him and Sam, that's why they laugh every time they do the Reguvinator hair dye commercials.

This means Clyde and "Mex" do also. My childhood is shattered.

Great job by MSG. Wish Tolleson didn't interuppt as those loud JD chants were about to errupt. Also...expected more from the Sam-JD introduction...

TBBB, were you at the game or watching? I'd love to hear from someone who was there - MSG turned the ambient volume off so we didn't get the full impact of the crowd.

I was at the game. The crowd was really loud, honestly. The chants of "J.D. clap, clap, J.D. clap, clap" echoed throughout the arena even before the ceremony started.

Awesome. That's what I wanted to hear.

I learned to love the Rangers listening to the radio in the early eighties when I was a kid and we didn't have cable, but upon going to college I became acquainted with JD in his prime as a broadcaster (while the Rangers were in their prime as a team). It was like listening to Vin Scully and Joe Garagiola calling the game of the week - and we got to hear it every game. What a treat. I am so glad he got the honor he deserved.

Yeah I've pretty much listened/watched JD my whole Ranger fan life (I have been a fan since I was a kid in the early-mid 80s). I like Joe alot, but it just hasn't been the same this year without JD on both Ranger telecasts and national games. But it was great to see him today and he got a great ovation. It's unfortunate the Blues won't be back for another three seasons but maybe he can come to do some scouting or something.
