That other Niemi

So Jyri Niemi is a Ranger. Suppose we’ll see where he falls on the spectrum of Former Future Sound Tigers like Andy Chiodo, like Cory Stillman, like Jan Holub, like Igor Volkov, like Cody Blanshan, like Wes O’Neill, like Stefan Ridderwall. Who am I forgetting?

Regardless, as his non-look-see for the playoffs made clear, Niemi wasn’t in the plans. Win-win.

(Seriously thought about tagging that post with the “inexact science” category from last summer. Nah.)

Speaking of whom, the Rangers are coming to Bridgeport… for a kid’s summer camp in August.

Micheal Haley had hand surgery after the season.

And finally, after five hours at a track meet under relentless sun… boy, do I miss hockey rinks.
