This is far better news then we could’ve hoped for. With the lack of updates on the situation, there was a concern for a holdout. Once John Moore is in the fold, the Rangers blue line will be at optimum efficiency and ready to take on the Eastern Conference and complete a mission started in 2012, when they lost in the ECF to the NJ Devils.
