Rumors of a split among the ranks at Madison Square Garden have the Rangers eyeballing Panthers' AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans. Can the Amerks be blamed for calling foul on Florida? Litter Box Cats reports:
In any case, it's hardly been news that Amerks fans and ownership have been less than enamoured with the Panthers' performance in regard to their American Legue stablemate, and finding anyone who believed an extension is forthcoming is an exercise in pain management. Of course, Cats' GM Dale Tallon just arrived, but whether he can - or more correctly chooses to - smooth over the crisis is anyone's guess. Florida and Rochester are joined at the hip for at the very least one more season.
