Late Wednesday afternoon the cell phone of BlueshirtsUnited.com's Jim Cerny went off, and on the other end was veteran center Jeff Halpern, who just agreed to terms on a free agent contract with the Rangers earlier in the week.
Halpern discussed a variety of topics with Cerny, most notably why he chose to come to Broadway and why he views the Rangers as a serious Stanley Cup contender. He also chatted about his ties to New York, having played for head coach John Tortorella in Tampa Bay, and much more.
Several of Halpern's thoughts are shared here in this quotebook---other stories and anecdotes will be contained in The Blueshirts Beat blog on this site a bit later today.
