Remembering NYR fans who are no longer with us

So as we embark on the highly emotional journey of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I wanted to take a minute to continue something that has turned into a end-of-season mini-tradition from me: remembering Rangers fans who have passed away.

The first person who always comes to me in this category is Ceil Saidel. If you're not familiar with the story, she was a die-hard longtime fan and Rangers Fan Club member who was murdered in the building she grew up in by a dangerous criminal when she should have been watching the Rangers in the 1994 Playoffs. I was so gutted as a 12 year old when I found out that someone who'd been a fan of our team that long missed out on seeing them win the Cup by just a couple of weeks and met such an awful fate. Her story is a reminder of how bad things used to be.

Anyway, I was hoping that others of you might have memories of Rangers fans who are no longer with us.

And to tell you how different things are now: go back to the night the Rangers won the Stanley Cup and you'll see that the last shot of the MSG's broadcast was a picture of a seat with a bouquet of flowers, Ceil Saidel's seat. It was a smaller world in those days.
