The New York Rangers went with relatively small signings on the first day of free agency, which wasn't a bad way at all of going about it. Michael Grabner was a solid pick up - even if he was once a member of the New York Islanders, where he spent the best years of his career (so far).
Actually, it might be even better, because he knows just how to use his time with the Islanders.
I really really hope @grabs40 takes the hatred the Islander fans are giving him and turns it into motivation to beat them during the season.— Pavel Fuchnevich (@PavelFuchnevich) July 2, 2016
This is where you make a note - Grabner has a relatively active Twitter, so yeah, he might just take your suggestions into account. (Be nice, though!)

Grabner's off to the perfect start. He's a Ranger now, past history be damned!
