Today's New York Rangers notes.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Have you ever heard the saying, "It's not a goodbye, but simply a see you later," pertaining to the hopes of seeing someone again? For Dan Boyle, It was definitely more than a goodbye to Rangers beat writer Larry Brooks of the NY Post.

Yesterday was the Rangers break up day, where the entirety of this year's roster met one more time to say their goodbyes, clean out their lockers, and have one final session with the media. Some recaps of the biggest quotes on the day [Blueshirt Banter] [Blueshirts United] [Ranger Rants] and of course [NY Post]

Questions still surround pending UFAs and RFAs this offseason, but some of those questions were vaguely answered on Tuesday. We all know by now that Keith Yandle wants to continue playing in New York, but Eric Staal is also not ruling out a possible return (given the opportunity of course.) [NY Post] [Bleacher Report]

After hearing the good news of Brady Skjei being given the opportunity to play for the United States in the World Championships this Spring, two more Rangers confirmed on Tuesday that they will also be representing their respective countries. Derick Brassard will be joining team Canada and Mats Zuccarello will join team Norway for the tournament in Russia.

Lastly, in my opinion, one of the classiest sports media personalities today, Kenny Albert gave his take on the disappointing end to the Rangers season, while providing a reason for us fans to smile. [MSG] Thanks Kenny!
