BSB’s Rangers thankful list – Thanksgiving open thread

What we here are thankful for regarding the Rangers

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers. And to everyone else, Happy Thursday? That works, right?

In the spirit of the holiday, I polled the BSB writers to see what they are thankful for when it comes to the Rangers.

Rob C: I’m thankful for Adam Fox. He’s quickly become my favorite Ranger to watch, which is saying something considering Artemi Panarin is on the team. Fox does so many things at an elite level already, and he’s not even 22 yet. When he really hits his prime, the Rangers could very well have a true No. 1 defenseman that should be around for the next decade.

Rob L: Their white jerseys. Some of the best in sports.

Tyler: I’m thankful for a true super star in Panarin and one in the making in Kakko.

Becky: I’m thankful for the rebuild. The Rangers are babies – their average age as of today is 25.4 – with talent to boot. This season is oddly fun and the team will only get better as the years go on.

Dave: I’m thankful for the roller coaster ride. Let’s be real, this could have (should have?) been like last season, where the games were meaningless and there was no real spirit in the fanbase. This year is different. Simply by adding Kakko, Trouba, and Panarin, the Rangers can light it up on any given night. We may win but I may die.

Use this as your open thread for the day. Open question: What time do you eat your Thanksgiving dinner?
