The Rangers have a new sheriff in town.
The Blueshirts have just pulled of the biggest trade of the summer; landing Rick Nash from the Columbus Blue Jackets. The cost was high. But the return could be immense.
To land the former Columbus captain and all-time leading scorer, the Rangers traded Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a first-round draft pick to the Jackets. This price may seem steep, but it is actually a great deal for New York.
This series has all the makings of a classic. A legendary goaltender looking for one last run at glory. A youngster looking to dethrone the mighty Brodeur. Dynamic and exciting superstars. Excitement. And of course controversy.
The people that now find themselves on the outside looking in are livid. Late and illegal hits (according to Phoenix)are dogging the Coyotes. Bad officiating and supposed dives have the Rangers feeling blue. Alas, the time to gripe is over. Once again it is time for some hockey.
