"It’s fun to go out there and do what you love to do,” according to Chris Kreider
Too bad the New York Rangers' prized rookie power forward is having his fun in the AHL, as the National Hockey League continues to suffer through a self-inflicted case of HRR (hockey-related ridiculousness).
Here's where we currently stand with the lockout:
- The players have just missed their first paychecks.
- The league has just hired a top GOP strategist to run public-relations focus groups to help change perceptions about the situation.
- The prospects of playing a full schedule just keep growing more minuscule by the day.
The prospects throughout the Blueshirts organization are working diligently, with the hopes of playing on the Broadway stage sometime soon.
