February 28th, 2013 at 1:56 PM
***VIDEO1*** The New York Rangers FINALLY took our advice and sent Chris Kreider back down to the Connecticut Whale of the AHL. This isn't a move we've been preaching because we don't like Kreider. We think he's a fantastic talent. He just isn't ready for the NHL yet, no matter what those...
