And I’m Back, Lisin Cut From Russia

Sorry for the lack of posting this weekend. There wasn’t much to talk about in Rangerland, and I was in Saratoga and Cooperstown for a bachelor party. Now that I’m back, with my voice and dignity still in Saratoga, there is a little Ranger news to post about, mostly involving the upcoming World Championships.

Enver Lisin, who seems to be having a difficult year on the ice, was cut from Team Russia (s/t to Laurie Carr from Beyond the Blueshirts for breaking this). Lisin was cut a few hours after Team Russia’s last tune up game, a loss to the Czech Republic.

Also, Chad Johnson was named to Team Canada for the World Championships. Mark Messier, the GM of Team Canada, added the young goaltender two days ago. Johnson is the second goaltender on Team Canada.

There is also a little news on the Ryan McDonagh situation, but that requires a whole other post. Expect that one tomorrow. For now, I need to catch up on work, emails, and attempt to find my dignity and voice.
