What Ryan Reaves said on the NHL Network today

Ryan Reaves was on the NHL Network earlier today and said the following about the Rangers:

  • On the season so far, “It’s been a roller coaster, getting traded from Vegas was obviously tough for me and coming here, the guys on this team, obviously Turk and Dru, they made me feel at home right away. I’m not going to say that I’ll ever forget Vegas, but it made me a lot more comfortable much quicker than I thought. One thing, before I got traded, I wanted to come to a team that was going to push for a Stanley Cup. I’m getting old, 35-years old now….I’ve achieved a lot in my career, more than I probably thought. I still haven’t got that scoring title yet, we are working on, but until I get that I want to win a Stanley Cup, I want it so bad just like every player, but my clock is ticking a little bit more than some of the other ones. We got a great group of guys, some really great young talent, you look at the leaders on this team, Kreids and Z and Troubs are playing out of their minds right now. Shesty is the best goalie in the league right now and I’m excited to see what this team can do in the final half of the season and into the playoffs.”
