It’s Christmas Eve and we here at Blue Line station have compiled our Christmas wish list. In the spirit of giving, we are doing our best to provide our readers with the best possible coverage of our team. But everyone of us is a fan, just like you. We all have those “Christmas wishes” that we are secretly holding onto so very steadfastly. The Rangers have received their early Christmas gifts in the form of Kreider’s goal against the Wild and the shoot out, which should have been a shut out, win for Talbot against the Leafs.
Each of us has written our list and we hope it comes true!
We hope you are doing well and not eating too many cookies. Rather than give you a list of stuff that will weigh down your sled, we’d like to offer you a much easier way to make our Christmas dreams come true. Here are the things our staff would like to have for Christmas:
Andrew would really like for the Rangers to make it into the top 3 by the end of January; if you want to throw Nail Yakupov into the mix I don’t think he would be upset.
Matt doesn’t want much. He just wants to have a long winning streak for the Rangers. [By long I'm sure he means enough wins to secure us a playoff spot].
If you could manage to get Chris Kreider to sign every piece of Rangers gear Kenny owns he would be most grateful, adding Cam Talbot’s autograph to the mix would be icing on the cake. Kenny also would like the Rangers to be in the top three of the Metropolitan Division and progressing upwards.
Jared has a few things on his list, but it’s ok because I know he will share. If you could bring him tickets to a Rangers game for a suite with Mark Messier to watch the game with, I know he would be most willing to invite the rest of the staff. If you have any pull over contracts, he’d like to see the Rangers sign Dustin Byfuglien, P.K. Subban, and/or Alex Galchenyuk. If they are too tough he will settle for any defenseman with positive production at both ends of the ice as well as a young goal scorer who can actually find the back of the net with the puck on a regular basis.If it’s not too much to ask, he’d also like the Rangers to be over .500 at home this year too.
As for me, it’s hard to say. I’d really love to spend a day with the team seeing what it’s like hanging around them. I know I would take lots of pictures and maybe get some autographs, but mostly I would just have so much fun talking hockey with the guys on the team. It would be a day to remember that no one could take away from me. Who am I kidding, I would totally turn into a complete geek but it would be great!
If it’s not too much to ask, Santa, maybe you could bring us at least part of our Christmas wishes. We aren’t just asking for us, we are asking for all of the fans. If you don’t believe me, read the comments and see what our readers would like to have for Christmas.
Andrew, Dani, Kenny, Matt, and Jared at Blue Line Station
