4. Adam Graves

Adam Graves played forward for the New York Rangers for 10 years from 1991 to ’01. In those 10 years, Graves scored 280 goals and assisted on 227 others.

Graves would have his greatest season in what most would call the franchise’s greatest season ’93-’94. In that Stanley Cup year, Graves scored 52 goals and added 27 assists. The 52 goals are still the second most ever for a Ranger in a single season.

Graves also played seven seasons for three other NHL teams. In those seven seasons combined he scored 49 goals with 60 assists total.

Adam Graves was born to be a Ranger. He is still beloved by coaches, teammates, broadcasters and most importantly by a legion of Rangers fans that will forever be grateful to him for his contributions on and off the ice since his arrival in 1991.

Graves was ranked the nointh best Ranger of all-time by ESPN. In two thousand and noine, Graves’ number noine was retired by the Rangers and raised to the rafters of Madison Square Garden.

I've wanted to write about sports since the first time I read Mike Lupica of the NY Daily News rip George Steinbrenner about the Boss' treatment of Dave Winfield. The Pen truly is mightier than the sword. I still look forward to reading the sports section in the paper every morning. Writing about sports, even in a part time capacity is a dream come true.
