Callahan and alternate captain Brad Richards huddled together, threw around some names and reached out to their teammates to suggest hiring a guest coach -- NYU’s Chris Cosentino -- and getting a jump-start before camp began so the team can hit the ground running when the puck drops Jan. 19.

“Only one week with Torts, we didn’t want to ease into it, and we knew he wouldn’t want to ease into it, either,” Richards said. “We’d rather be practice-ready -- we can’t be game-ready because that’s kind of impossible -- but at least we won't be shocked Sunday.”

All 23 players who are expected to be in training camp when it opens (tentatively) Sunday were on the ice Thursday for an up-tempo, intense double session.players battled hard in the corners and put themselves through a taxing course of skating drills.

yesterdays line combos were:
Nash-Richards-Gaborik
Hagelin-Stepan-Callahan
Kreider-Boyle-Pyatt
Rupp-Halpern-Asham

I like that. It's proof that the Rangers have good leadership and professionalism throughout the ranks. I'm sure Torts is pleased that he doesn't need to be there cracking the whip to get the players to do what is necessary. Kudos to the boys.
