Although brief, newest Ranger Rick Nash did join Boomer & Carton on WFAN 660AM in New York this morning for a few minutes to talk about the trade.

  • Judging from his comments, New York was the only place Rick Nash wanted to go. He recognizes the team they have and how close they are to winning a Cup. It's refreshing to hear great players wanting to come here for a chance at winning, not because of money.

Finally, for all the Dubinsky lovers, it seems as if Mike Rupp will be wearing number 17 next season. There was a conversation between the two on Twitter the other day, but seems to have disappeared *hmm.* Although, if you check out Rupp's Twitter handle, it has gone from Rupper71 to Rupper17.
