After numerous reports, angry debates, and impatient bantering among the Blueshirt faithful, Jimmy Vesey picked Broadway as his destination.

There’s only one question left to be answered:
Is Jimmy Vesey truly ready for the NHL? While there were some growing pains this past year, Kevin Hayes was a major part of the Rangers Eastern Conference Final run in the spring of 2015.
But there is plenty of time to debate these details. For now, the Blueshirt faithful can rest easy knowing that a rather large offensive hole has been filled.
Now only if we could say the same about the defense.
