Via text: Brad Richards says as of right now, likely not headed overseas, focused on working out here for the time being— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) September 17, 2012
...with players bolting overseas left and right, it's refreshing to see our guys would rather stick together and work to get better as a team.
...now all this might change as the lockout drags on and the season looks to be in jeopardy.
TheNYRBlog's Neill Fowler has more on this here.
@TheNYRBlog @BRichards_1991 he si only stayng on town becasue of @ErinAndrews . #stupidmove go play hockey! u clearly are lazy
@TheNYRBlog @BRichards_1991 no. he's stricking around becasu of his g/f erin andrews. he went to russia the last lockout admit it Brad!
Our guys would...new guys not so much. Rumor is Nash is on his way to Europe. I said I didn't want him and now I can prove why. Maybe I'm being ridiculous but I'm pissed.
@TheNYRBlog in other news, you can crap your pants and feel good about the team doing that, but no formal talks once again. #allfornaught
@TheNYRBlog very good to see the team staying a team in times like these,builds important chemistry and trust, loyalty ..intangibles
Not sure if you saw it but this was great to read https://twitter.com/KatieStrangESPN/status/247732192321601537
@TheNYRBlog As shitty as it sounds - would love to have a running list of where Rangers players go if/when they choose to...
@AmoriZep Can we get Brad Richards to be the PJ Stock of the US then? Or Clay Matthews/Wes Welker on ice then?
@DerekBFelix Apparently they just can't use the rest of the facility, ie locker room, training area, etc.
@JoeWest297 Thanks for the heads-up!
@TheNYRBlog haha. sorry dude, i'm just so f-ing bitter right now about this lockout, i can't think anything BUT negatively
@TheNYRBlog Yeah, it hurts, but at least they're trying to make sure they're ready for when/if this nonsense lockout ends.
@TheNYRBlog nor should i be. and what's worse? the NHL just expects us all to run back like sheep. not me...no way
