“The death last week of the Rangers star Don Raleigh at 86 severed another of the last links to a long-vanished world of hockey where the ice was brown, chicken-wire fencing guarded the ends of the rink and a skinny player who developed a taste for opera could make it in the NHL.”

    The way people reacted to the trade you would think the Rangers got Wayne Gretzky in his prime for nothing more than a bag of pucks…so yes he obviously is over rated….that said he is a solid player who should do well with the Blueshirts.

    The CBJ’s got good players with plenty of potential as well.
