I don't want to make any assumptions about who the Rangers plan on moving, but this "it's going to be okay, please don't hate us" PSA begs one question and one question only. Exactly how extensive do they plan on the wreckage being if they are already doing damage control by giving their two weeks notice on the season two and half weeks prior to the trade deadline?
I'm absolutely here for the explosion but I would suggest wearing safety goggles if you're headed to MSG anytime soon, because the timing of that "message" comes across as a preemptive softening of the type of blowup that diverts traffic for months on end. I don't personally know nor do I personally care which particular perennial losers Rangers' diehards feel are closest to kin. However, I would suggest they start distancing themselves now, because you don't spend two paragraphs babbling about a hypothetical future during a playoff race (no matter how far back from the leader you've fallen) unless your present is about to become your past.
"RangersTown" (insert all the eye-rolls) is about to be under heavy construction for an indefinite period of time, and I know this because they - themselves - just reached out to each and every one of their fans publicly to give them a forewarning to mark their calendars, plan their detours, and beware the rubble.
Honestly, I just feel bad for the crown-less king that's decided to go down with what's nothing more than a self-proclaimed castle.
