It’s been a while since I’ve penned one of the musings posts. Generally these are done by Chris, and Suit fills in when he can’t. But today it’s my turn. Enjoy.
I don’t get all this hate of James Dolan saying the Rangers are nearly contenders for the Cup. It’s not like he guaranteed anything, he just said what we all know: The Rangers are a very good team, and appear to be a piece or two away from making a run. He didn’t pull a Rex Ryan. He didn’t say anything about how they will win this year. He said “close,” which means any time within the next 2-3 years. I’ve been saying 2013-2014 for a while now, am I a jinx too?
Another thing about the Dolan hate: Why do people think he’s a terrible owner? Sure, he’s an absentee owner and turned a blind eye to the pre-lockout doings of Glen Sather, but he continually opens his checkbook without hesitation to make sure the Rangers get what the Rangers need. Would another owner have signed Brad Richards after seeing what happened with Scott Gome
