Just Awesome

Thank you for the invaluable insights all throughout the season. Great combination of player views and current information from a journalistic perspective.

Outstanding Show!!

I listened to this show for the first time yesterday after the JD/Gordon/Dolan situation. This show is OUTSTANDING. Ron is there which of course makes it fun, but the addition of a younger generation in Molly is the key! It’s obvious she really has been a Ranger fan since birth!!! I’m in Florida so I don’t get many people talking about hockey hear, and this show hits the spot for me!!! And as a side note, can we get some type of open letter to Rangers front office recommending adding Nick Fotiu to the Rangers coaching staff in a special assistant type role to help with development of the young guys?!?! Seriously!!!

Mollie Walker has been a great addition to the show. Easily slotted into the “1st line” with the always entertaining and insightful Duguay. Great show, Ron. Very informative on the news around the management shakeup.
