Update, 8:45 p.m.:
Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants has more from Kennedy including this...
“From what I saw last year, (coach John Tortorella) likes guys who can skate and compete,” Kennedy added. “I think that’s what I can bring to the table and what I hope to bring to the team. They’re a fast-paced, up-tempo team. I thought it was a good fit for me.”
Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog was able to speak with newest Ranger Tim Kennedy who had this to say about joining the Blueshirts...
"It's nice, being form (sp) here, I always watched the Sabres and Rangers because we have the MSG channel," said the 24-year-old Kennedy. "It's a great place to play and a chance to be close to home and join a top-flight organization and that's what I'm looking for. ... (Dubinsky and Gilroy said) that it's a great place to play, an awesome experience being in front of 18000 people a night, and I'm looking forward to that challenge."
Kennedy played with Brandon Dubinsky and Matt Gilroy for Team USA at this summer's world championships in Germany.
...for the price, I guess you can't go wrong here. Unfortunately, the Rangers just made it that much harder for a home grown guy like Byers or Weise to make the team. Which I'm not all that excited about.
