Rochester recently told the Florida Panthers that they would not continue their arrangement when it ends this season.
Bruce Bertlet spoke with the Rangers Jim Schoenfeld who said that there was nothing going on between the Rangers and the Americans.
...I like how Schoenfeld used my logic of the word "interest" when he talks about the rumor. Sure, Rochester may be interested in partnering with the Rangers, but that doesn't mean that the Rangers feel the same way. It also seems a lot less likely now that the Rangers are letting someone else run most of the Pack/Whale's operations.
And it still doesn't make any sense to move farther away from New York City.
