Ranger fans

Hey Ryan and Greg,

I’m sort of new to Rangers/hockey twitter, and from what I’m seeing there are a lot of negative and reactionary fans, is this just a New York thing? Every time the rangers lose its like the world is gonna end from what I read, when we’re still in a rebuilding year. Following on from that is this because people are getting fed up of the rebuild and want us to make panic moves and try and push for the playoffs?

Also I will never understand hank slander, how can people disrespect such a legend, honestly never seen anything like it!

I’m also glad that Southampton have turned things around for Greg’s sake (they even beat my team Chelsea recently)

Keep up the fantastic work you guys do

Draft

Hey guys, before I ask my question... suuuch love for the podcast, look forward to it every week. Thank you, solid work.

Trying to understand the draft, I won’t lie little I’m a bit confused as to who gets what, why and how the picks are confirmed. I get the basics of the lowest team picks first but a touch lost after that. Might be a stupid question!

Cheers from the UK

Praise be!

Lindgren or Hájek?

Hey guys. As always, stellar work on the show. It’s been part of my weekly routine for so long now.

Quick question if I may?

In three years time, who’s the better player, Ryan Lindgren or Libor Hájek?

Cheers guys. You’re still the best.

Ray.
Up the Saints!!!

P.S. Next time I’m in NYC I owe you both dinner.
