Now we need a race between Chris Kreider and Michael Grabner
Grabner is trying to say it's not necessary - so now, it is.
Chris Kreider is officially back with the New York Rangers. Hooray! He's regarded as one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, which is always good to have.
You know who else is one of the fastest skaters? Michael Grabner, who actually won the contest at the All-Star Game back in 2011.
So that leaves the Rangers with at least two really, really fast skaters. You know what this calls for? A race, as Twitter user Jake Gray has the right idea.
Hey @ChrisKreider I'm friends w/ Meg Zolner from ur days at BC she was @ Harvard i think u knew her.R U going to race @grabs40 every pract?— Jake Gray (@GrayJohnjr) July 27, 2016
An idea so good, it caught Grabner's attention.
No need to race we r on the same team now. https://t.co/qN1U7xXz5A— Michael Grabner (@grabs40) July 27, 2016
Boooo. That's a cop out, and he knows it. This HAS to happen now - that, or Kreider is going to be the Rangers' fastest skater by default.
