The 6th Sens:
A little late on this since the interview was conducted on Wednesday but **** it, it's the lockout *******!
As always, you can listen to the actual interview via the Team 1200's Facebook page.
My comments will be in bold.
Q: Do you have the whole staff and all the scouts down in Bingo?
A: No, just a couple of guys. Pierre, obviously and Randy. Chris Schwarz is here to help out with training camp and he’s still here. I think he leaves after the game tonight. Rob Murphy, one of our pro scouts, is here. Bryan (Murray) drove down a day or two ago and he’s going to watch the first game also and a couple of us will stay down here until it’s all said and done.
Bryan Murray drove down instead of relying upon the infamous chartered limousine that shuttles players between Ottawa and Binghamton? That is quite the cost-saving strategy. I bet there's a former employee somewhere who feels better knowing it was not just the lowest employees on the organ...

Matt Gilroy has signed AHL contract with Whale. Prodigal free agent D presumably will sign with Rangers when lockout ends.
What Brooks adds there is an interesting...

...can you say insurance if the Rangers can't re-sign Del Zotto?
...while Gilroy wasn't terrible during his time with the Rangers, actually, one could argue he was their best defenseman against the Capitals in playoffs back...
