Another one according to Steve Zipay from Newsday, the Rangers today waived Donald Brashear, Aaron Voros, and Patrick Rissmiller.
I’m happy as a clam. Did anyone really want them to stay? The only people that might be a little disheartened by this would be Sean Avery and Henrik Lundqvist who are good friends with Aaron Voros. Other than that, everyone else is going “FINALLY!!”
Donald Brashear we all knew was gone a long time ago since last season when he made his famous remarks about being unhappy. Soon after that, Glen Sather said he’ll never be a Ranger again. Oh no, I’m crying. I HATED that signing. I couldn’t be happier.
Voros had a decent start in the beginning of the 2008-2009 season but then soon fell off drastically and was never a favorite of either Tom Renney or John Tortorella. He played a total of 95 games in the two season we had him, totaling 11 Goals, 23 Points, and 211 PIMs. He was never really hated by the fans too much because it was almost always obvious that he worked hard every time he was out on the ice. It just never really amounted to much. I doubt he’ll ever see light of day from the Wolf Pack again, at the very most he’ll come up because of an injury.
I’m not even going to talk about Patrick Rissmiller because he is just utterly useless and doesn’t deserve words on a blog. I’m actually giving him too much attention by writing this. PEACE PATRICK.
On the soon-to-follow list is the much anticipated Wade Redden, something I’ve been saying since I’ve taken over this blog and way before. It appears with even more certainty that Redden will be waived into the AHL and his bloated waste of a contract will be hidden from our much needed cap space.
Oh man, wouldn’t it be heaven if we waived him and someone picked him up? I might just not want to kick Glen Sather in the Ranger jewels for once in my life.
