Some NHL news and notes as training camp is suddenly underway!

NHL 14 released yesterday in the US, and Canada. And well.. some mixed reviews are underway as the game seemingly is the same from last year, but at least fighting ramped up a lot! A full review will be posted in the coming days here on Blueline Station.

Training camp starts today! While the Rangers will not hit the MSG Training Center ice until tomorrow officially, they’re back at it for internal interviews that Jim Cerny will most certainly post and share with the Blueshirts United Crowd in the coming days, so we have that to start looking forward to.

While the Rangers have not formally announced their training camp roster, a lot of the players that were in Traverse City are expected to attend, except for those who still might be in college and playing in juniors. So, no Anthony Duclair (he’s only 17 anyway), and no Boo Nieves (still has a year of eligibility in college). But, Danny Kristo, Oscar Lindberg, and Jasper Fast, you betcha.

We’ll post later today a complete look into 5 burning questions the Rangers must answer during training camp, you better believe we’ll talk more about Kristo and Lindberg as they deserve some serious consideration for being in the lineup during opening night. I expect to see a lot of the kids during the preseason, but especially those two. They proved their worth during Traverse City.

Also, we would like to take the time to remember those who lost their lives, and risked it all on September 11, 2001. It was only 12 years ago, but it still feels like yesterday.

    Thanks to the fireman that gave their lives on Sept 11, 2001. They are all heroes. That means you Leon Smith. Ladder 118 Brooklyn Hights, NY. God Bless. My pops was a Fireman for 20 years but retired 9/10/01. His house was one of the 1st to hustle over the Brooklyn Bridge and arrive at Ground Zero. Hook and Ladder 118 was decimated after the North Tower came down killing all Fireman inside. Leon Smith was last heard from moments before the building collapsed at the 35th floor and climbing up to help people escape.
