Some of Us Have Work to Do!!!!! Scott Gone & Dany Coming?

Wow! Things were so quiet this afternoon with everyone eyeing tomorrow when free agency officially opens. I was ready to mock the GM (I'll save that for another date) when once again in true Steinbrennerian fashion, he takes over the NHL front page with his trade of Scott Gomez.

What's interesting is Tortorella's quote from this morning (cue the foreshadowing music):

"As far as the lines are concerned, as far as the makeup of our team, from Scott Gomez right on down, the only guy I know is gonna be there is Hank,'' he said, referring to Henrik Lundqvist. "He's gonna be our starting goalie. But other than that, it's wide open. And I'm not afraid of youth. It's going to be done on merit."

Remind me never to have the coach use my name in a sentence unless he is lavishing serious praise on me.

Rumors are starting to appear that Dany Heatley will be the Rangers' new acquisition.

Oh Dany boy! -- 180 goals over the past 4 seasons at Ottawa -- the Garden goal pipes, the Garden goal pipes are calling you . . . as visions of goal scoring dance in my head.
