WFAN: Announcement Today?

Not the normal WFAN bull..

WFAN will have 10th anniversary of the Rangers cup win today on mike and the mad dog, and they also said an announcement would be made that will make all Ranger fans extremely happy.

I didn't see it posted here yet. Take it for what its worth.

I think it'll be bogus. If it was any news of significant interest, the story would have been leaked days ago. I can't imagine Slats announcing to the Rangers world that they just acquired the 1st overall selection from the Caps. At the very best, it'll probably be an announcment for the new Coach. However, knowing how lame this franchise is, and with no news from a SOTI or Park or Edge, I can't imagine it making us "very happy".

Perhaps an Umberger signing?

It is strange that RJ's signing will be announced the same day that the NYR's are making some sort of "significant" announcement.

I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I thought of that too. With all this secrecy regarding which team he picked, you have to wonder if he did wind up here in NY after all.

Would an Umberger signing really make you "very happy"?

My guess: new coach.

WFAN was running the Rangers ten year anniversary promo the entire weekend

5:05 is the special announcement

Mike and the Mad Dog will have it

They are broadcasting from a Yogi Berra golf tournament today

WFAN does not have the Rangers&Knicks radio rights anymore

I don't think it is the Umberger signing because he is not a big enough name. The hiring of Q would be a big announcement but I don't think it is that either or it would have leaked already.

I think somethng that would make all Rangers fans happy is Graves getting his Jersey in the rafters. Would make sense with them doing a 10 year anniversary of the Cup win.

Huh

I think they are going to announce that Glen Sather has beat all the other teams in the race to resign Valary Kamensky.

I think it's going to be Messier's retirement. It makes sense. It'll be the 10th anniversary of his greatest achievement in NYC. Also, didn't rodent report about a week/2 weeks ago that a purchase was made for an ornamental hockey stick for Messier. It all makes sense. Guys, I think that's what it is. Unfortunately, this isn't going to make me "very happy". While I'm glad he's off the team, it's not really a monumental day for me. I'd rather it be a coach hiring or a player transaction. Mess's retirement is really low on my happy list.

hello

Did you say the big announcement will be on WFAN at 5:05 PM? This news will make all ranger fans happy? Would a news network really say that if it was to be messier's retirement? I will be very happy if it is but I also want to know about the coach and RJ Umberger as well.

but there is no way the rangers would promote messier's retirement as something ranger fans will celebrate...

Messier is named coach and Umberger's # is retired

I agree, that's why I think it will be to announce that, if there is a season, Messier has given in to Sather and will be coming back for one more year to lead and teach the new crop of Ranger youngsters....

It could be something really simple like maybe wfan is replaying game 7 tonight. Why would the rangers announce something significant on a station that is not even there radio home anymore?

Could you imagine how pissed the writers that cover the team everyday in the season will be if they are shut out of a major announcement?

I think it's hiring a coach which they probrably want to do before the draft next weekend and I expect it will be Quenville that gets introduced tonight.

Are the rangers having a press conference or are they announcing something on Mike and the mad dog?

But Mike and the Mad Dog would. They've been calling for his head for a while now...as have a lot of the fans. I haven't heard the actual promo, so I'm just guessing based on comments by M & MD.

perhaps the rangers will say they are going to retire messiers jersey. that would seem like the likely and fitting annoncement today.
