Avalanche Storytime with Adrian

Book Excerpt: The Joe Sakic/New York Rangers saga



Hey, it’s the off-season, and while we’ll have plenty of coverage on the draft next month (Oct. 6-7, done virtually) and free-agency (signing period starts Oct. 9) and anything else Avalanche-related, there are going to be some slow days.

Today, I want to post the first of several excerpts from my 2016 book, “100 Things Avalanche Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die.”

In today’s excerpt, the first of two and the second of which will post tomorrow, we delve into the Joe Sakic/New York Rangers situation from 1997. Sakic really did sign a contract with the Rangers in July of 1997, and it created lots and lots of drama.

Here is the excerpt:
