Is Naslund going to Captain the Rangers?



I was just going through the playing rosters for the Rangers/Sens game on NHL.com, and it has Markus Naslund down as a captain. Now, he wasn't playing, but still interesting. It shows Drury and Naslund as Captains, and Roszival, Betts, and Redden as Assistants. Maybe the C is going to be shared there this season?

This seems like an Amazingly wonderful idea considering Markus couldn't handle the pressure of wearing the "C" in Vancouver, so slapping one on his jersey in New York is about as bright as dumping some Vogue intern in the middle Texas.....oh, wait.

Side note: I don't know how much you should trust NHL.com for your hockey info anyways, because they also have John Tortorella down as coaching the game in Pittsburgh tonight. Seriously, who runs that website, a rat on a wheel?

Markus has down-syndrome.

Wait, is there actually someone out there that likes Chris Higgins enough to make him his comment handle? That really is quite something.

You can check Puck Daddy's and NY Rangers Blog's takes on this as well.

Just go to the links part of the page to the right.

Maybe it's Higgins from Magnum P.I.

This reminds me: where's Magnus Arvedson, or Magnus P.I. as we used to call him?

I saw him at your Mom's house.

Totally the wrong thing to be focusing on...the bigger screw-up in waiting is Petr Nedved, given a preseason try out in an effort to make the Blueshirts for the 3rd time. Attempts one and two were such flops I can't even conceive why management even considered this.

Please see the "Nedved is a Lucky Loser" post from last month. I think you may like it.
