Hey, Hockey's Back

It's official, the summer is over. We closed our pool last week. We don't have to worry about baseball postseason. The Mets took care of that in May, the Yanks made us suffer a little bit longer in a very mediocre AL. Now its time to concentrate on hockey. What do you know? When it looked like everything was going to be cool, Derek Stepan breaks a leg. He had a bad foot and you wonder why a guy with a bad foot would do a workout drill and lo and behold, snap, crackle pop. But whatever.

This would be a good time for a guy like JT Miller to step up and show what he can do. I think the Rangers have a good chance to make another strong run. We lost a couple of good guys like Stralman and a good leader in Richards. However, it looks like Dan Boyle will fit in very nicely along side Marc Staal and Ryan Malone may surprise us all by being that tough big forward we're always looking for.

The defense is solid, the goaltending is golden and look for a revitalized offense from Nash and St. Louis. I had a very good summer. Anyhow, look for another strong run. Should be a good 2014-2015 season. Let's Go Rangers!

ICINGS: The T/Birds open their season tonight. Nicholas, who missed most of last year with a shoulder separation is back with the JV. The coaches are upbeat about the season, which opens tonight. Nicholas will play at his normal defense this year. Go T/Birds
