I thought it’s a good time then to put out a few reminders.
Inspired by Upper Deck’s National Hockey Card Day up in Canada, we’re giving away a box of 2008-09 NHL Fleer Ultra.
Ok, I want to sneak a little more hockey in here. Rangers coach Tom Renney was let go yesterday. The replacement is John Tortorella. There’s still a deal that needs to be worked out between the Blueshirts and Bolts, but it’s happening.
Something I twittered (tweeted?) from my own account earlier: I cannot wait for Larry Brooks to have to talk to John Tortorella every night. Post-game press could be better than in-game action.
