Good Luck Sam

Sam Weinman has decided to leave the Rangers beat to take a senior editor position at http://www.golfdigest.com.  And seriously, who can blame him?  That’s a serious step up from blog writer.

First we lose John Dellapina, and now Sam Weinman?  All we have left is Steve Zipay, a squirrel, and a crotchity old man.

Not to say that Zipay is bad.  I actually enjoy his writing.

From all of us here at 5-hole.com, good luck in your new job, Sam.  You will be missed.

The Rangers and Sean Avery are still negotiating, but it doesn’t look good.  John Dellapina reports that the Rangers are ready to let Avery go to free agency.  Those of you who have read this blog in the past know where we stand on Avery.  If you don’t know, read The Case for Avery.  If you don’t want to read that, here’s a summary.  We like him. 

Avery wants about $4 million per season.  The Rangers want to pay about $2.75 million.  For the Rangers to let Avery go to free agency over this difference is ridiculous.  For crying out loud, the Rangers are going to pay Christian Backman more money next season than they are offering Avery!  WTF?

In happier news, the Rangers have been given permission to negotiate with Sharks Defenseman Brian Campbell, who is exactly the Power Play quarterback the Rangers were missing this season.

Larry Brooks has a full article up on the Post website.  Read it here.
