Legal tussle between NHL and Rangers continues . . .

The Sports Business Journal reported this morning that the NHL is taking legal action against the Rangers that could result in an attempt to take ownership of the franchise away from MSG.

No, really. Or so it says here:

"The NHL has proposed disciplinary proceedings against MSG that could result in the suspension or termination of their ownership of the NHL Rangers, according to a draft letter written by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman that was filed in New York district court late yesterday. The letter, part of the league's ongoing legal fight against MSG, alleges that MSG – by suing the NHL – has violated the league constitution."

Yikes! Very interesting. But I'm guessing there will be many months or years of legal rigmarole before the NHL actually repossesses Henrik Lundqvist, packs up the uniforms and moves the team to Des Moines.
