Yesterday, Stan Fischler, sent out a bunch of tweets saying that in 1994 the Rangers offered former Islanders captain Denis Potvin a contract.
Fischler's tweets were:
- Thanks to pal Phil Czochanski, we have the "inside" on Potvin nearly becoming a Ranger. Phil got it straight from Denis. It happened in 1994
- Phil says,"Denis had been retired for 5 seasons" when Rangers made the offer: "They offered him a $5 mil bonus for a Cup win; and $2 mil for the rest of that season and $5 mil for the following season."
