    1. The two are interchangable. If you disagree, that's your perogative.
    2. In the context of my post I refer to a players tenure with a club. Euro fans like their players to stay with their club preferably as long as they are performing, or in special cases their entire careers. "Sell when they're high" is not something Europeans consider part of their sport culture. Which is precisely what American fans do.

    But you are firmly on the side of those who think players are relics when they are 30, I am not. So we'll agree to disagree.

    August 11th in Oslo, 25.000 tickets and almost sold out. Amazing event for charity.

    Nice to see McDonagh...friends forever. More players will come, they are hoping to construct two full NHL-teams.

    Many U.S journalists are expected including a crew from MSG, look for live coverage.

    That charity game is really growing in reputation considering the increase in big names. Awesome to see

    Interview with Zucc in the Norwegian newspaper VG today

    Original link
    Google Translated Article

    Interesting tidbit :
    The Rangers have 2 players in the top 10 of Jerseys sold leaguewide in 2017. Hank is at number 5, and Zucc is at number 7. Together, Hank and Zucc has well over half of the Rangers total Jersey sales.

    Translator doesn't work, but this is based on a video interview done yesterday. He basically says he wants to remain a Ranger until he retires, no matter what. But if he gets traded then so be it, he's ready.

    So who thinks he gets traded? Also, if he does, when do you think it will happen?

    In Spain you cheer for all players on the same team no matter of age and that`s EU culture. If he is moved or sold it`s something different, because then he is not within the same club or franchise in hockey. Those most popular players are those who are oldest players, because they have the longest history in the club like Andrés Iniesta on Barcelona for instant.

    He survived the draft, så I guess he will report for duty come camp. Either he goes by deadline or resigns.

    Not so fast, there will be more trades next week and through the summer. But I believe teams will have to come up with a 1st+ to get him.

    As I've mentioned before, the Rangers see him as a leader for the youngsters. He may even become captain and get his contract extended. But there's no rush, they can wait with the contract talks to see how things work out, or trade him at the deadline.

    Thanks Zucc for your hard work and effort. Good luck at your new club.
    Oh wait, he is still here?
