March 19th, 2010 by Broadway Hockey Daily Leave a reply »


Despite their connection to the Hartford Wolf Pack, there are rumors that the New York Rangers could switch minor league affiliates to the Syracuse Crunch according to Lindsay Kramer of The Post-Standard .

Dolgon said Columbus assistant GM Chris MacFarland told him the Blue Jackets would be talking to other teams.

Dolgon said he had no direct knowledge of a Columbus-Springfield final deal and that the Blue Jackets and Crunch have not officially announced that they are parting ways.

Still, he said that he and MacFarland have not discussed affiliation proposals for several weeks and that the Crunch is in heavy negotiations with one team to move in here.

Dolgon would not identify that team, but speculation has centered around the New York Rangers. Dolgon, a Long Island resident, is a former Rangers season ticket holder and is good friends with New York assistant general manager Jim Schoenfeld.
