Live from Twin Cities: NYR open at home 10/27 v. Leafs

So it's Europe and Western Canada for the first three weeks, boys and girls....Full schedule to be released Thursday afternoon. Stay tuned for all that and more from Minneapolis-St. Paul. No ice storms in sight this visit. Ahhhhh...

Note: Rangers opened with Leafs last season as well.

Just spoke with Minny native Derek Stepan, the rookie center who will be here as a Rangers guest for the draft on Friday. Totally forgot that he did not attend his own draft in 2009. He thought he wasn't going to be selected until the fourth or fifth round. We talked about his summer so far (been working out for three weeks with Drew Stafford) and his outdoor game experience (two assists at Camp Randall Stadium in 2010 as a Badger vs Michigan) and the Cup Final. More here later and in Newsday tomorrow.  Ryan McDonagh also will be around these parts, hope to catch up with him tomorrow or Friday...
