It’s Wednesday, which means a brand new episode of the “Up In The Blue Seats” podcast with Ron Duguay. This week, it’s a look back into the history of the Rangers franchise.

Ron opens the show talking with NY Post sportswriter Mollie Walker. She shares memories interning for Stan Fischler, what John Davidson said to the media on a conference call about the Rangers players staying fresh without hockey and what she loves about being a sportswriter.

Fischler, the longtime hockey historian and analyst, then joins the podcast. Fischler discusses living in Israel and the hockey scene there. He also talks about having Walker intern for him, and then she talks about her experience interning for The Maven. He also reacts to the 24-team playoff format, how unpredictable it will be, changes in the game over the decades, his favorite Rangers player to interview and who his two best hockey players ever are. Fischler then dives into Rangers history and lets people know about the founder of the franchise, Tex Rickard. Should Rickard be honored in some way by the Rangers? Ron ends the conversation stumping Stan with a trivia question about founders and statues.
