Editors Note: Everyone please welcome William Rogers who will be covering the Whale for Black & Blueshirts going forward! You can find him on twitter at @bigbillrog.
Hey everyone, I am going to be contributing to Black and Blueshirts as a fan, and follower, of the CT Whale (Rangers AHL Affiliate).
FIRST and foremost, I am not someone who is by any means a professional, I am a FAN. I am a fan of the CT hockey scene, a season ticket holder for the Whale, and the New York Rangers (even after the loss in NJ, which I expect Chris Christie and Marty Brodeur are celebrating over a few dozen doughnuts from some dirty half tanning salon half bakery)
I will only be writing as a fan, with my own opinion, and being in CT, bringing you (NY Rangers fans) inside information on the AHL affiliate, through observation- BOOM-
Now, let my first Black and Blue (and Whaler green) post be about the situation in Hartford. I am going to break this down simple, since it is not portrayed as a simple thing, on any news outlet, any hockey site, or any bathroom stall at the XL Center.
***The CAPITAL REGION DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (CRDA) is going to make a decision on which of the bidders, will own and operate the XL center. This decision is said to be made this week.***
