Note: It Seems Like The Rangers Made The Right Choice With This Move/Non-Move In 2004

In an article from the NY Post on March 21st, 2004, Larry Brooks wrote this:

“Rangers were in on the bidding for Brown free-agent goaltender Yann Danis, but did not come close to matching the near-cap numbers the Hobey Baker candidate received from Montreal. We’re told that the Blueshirts do not regard Danis to be as promising a prospect as Henrik Lundqvist, their 22-year-old seventh-round selection in the 2000 Entry Draft who is having an outstanding year for Frolundia of the Swedish Elite League. We’ll see. The Rangers, who hope to sign Lundqvist and then get him over to Hartford next season, had better be right. Because the organization that can afford almost anything cannot afford mistakes on personnel.”

Danis has played 50 career NHL games and has a record of 16-21-4
