So Far So Good For Redden

Sam Weinman at The Rangers Report gives us the early returns on Wade Redden...

"I like Redden’s puck-handling and his ability to make the simple but effective first pass. And I like the fact that he’s willing to absorb a hit—and there have been plenty the first two days—to make a play."

Dubi at the Blueshirt Bulletin has more on Redden's performance here.

...i'm still worried about Redden's ability to deal with the pressure of playing in New York. But as my headline says, so far so good.

Brett Cyrgalis at The Blue Seats also has a report from this morning's scrimmage in which he talks about the stand-out perfromances of Dawes, Korpikoski, Anisimov, Parenteau and Fritsche. name that has been absent from these reports is Freddie Sjostrom. With the way Fritsche and Rissmiller have been playing so far it looks like Sjostrom could be fighting Voros for that last spot on the fourth line.

I'm sure playing in a diehard hockey city like Ottawa isn't easy. Afterall, ice hockey over there makes the cover of newspapers day in and day out. Here in NY, the Rangers made back page covers (full) maybe twice. Yeah there's a microscope on you on Broadway but the media coverage isn't half what it is in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal...

Every now and then I feel the "pressure of New York" isn't as big as people think.
