I think that I have figured out what is going on in the Rangers front office:
Naslund has been on the downslope since the lockout, Kalinin can't stay healthy, Redden was chased out of Ottawa, Columbus fans cheered that Zherdev is gone ... so just what are the Rangers doing?
I think I have it! It is just the next step in healing the wound caused by all of the litigation between the NHL and the Rangers. The Blueshirts are making up for their legal attacks by buying heavily into the NHL Green campaign to "put global warming on ice."
Unfortunately, Sather's Alzheimer's has it mixed up: the team is supposed to recycle newspaper and cans, not hockey players.
