Read: Rick Nash Is Everything Jeff Gorton Hoped He Would Be

At Blueshirts United, Rangers assistant GM Jeff Gorton described the level of excitement that he had when the deal to acquire Rick Nash finally went through.

“We had worked for months to get Rick here, so when it finally happened and the trade was agreed on, we were extremely excited. Glen, Schoeny, and I had worked so long with so many others on this deal, but the feeling at the end was not relief that it was finally done, it was just pure excitement that we had added Rick to our team.”

Gorton added, “to get a guy like Rick, then to meet him and get to know him, it just validated what we thought about him and why we made such a trade to get him.”

The Rangers acquired Nash for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a first round pick.

94% of fans said that they liked the move.

John Tortorella has said that he likes Nash because he is “all business.”

Morning Gangrels! The word from the Farm is another beautiful day for a Jets practice!


I am so upbeat on the all reports that I have been hearing on Geno that it has me actually drinking the kool aid. Geno they say is exuding confidence, has a firm grasp of the offense and is showing his awesome leadership skills on the field. I know it is only mini camp , but this is the progression that you want in a young developing QB. I said it a million times and I will say it again, Geno will shock us this season and make a massive leap, ARRIBA!!!!!!

I think McDougle could end up being a star, for years to come.  Loved his tape.  Hoping that he stays healthy.  Can't wait to see this new backfield, after a few games.

 He didn't sign till he turned green and showed his mettle.

@a57se Maybe to do with an injury waiver in connection with his shoulder?

@Bent @borisjets @Tequila Joe @Steven Windeler @specialk I never said Milliner looks like a fish. I don't think it's nice to make fun of how someone looks. And I don't believe that being a public figure makes someone fair game, to make fun of their looks. All I said was that Mcdougle looks like Milliner - just Milliner's chin protrudes more.
