    You have to love the upper management with Gorton and now JD. Even with Sather still there, that's a pretty sweet front office.

    Nice! Not even to the draft or FA signing yet and this has already been a heck of an off-season!

    OH BABY JD back at MSG.

    What can expect JD to bring to the Rangers that was missing from the previous group ?
