Clint Smith, the last remaining player from the 1940 New York Rangers Stanley Cup winning team, died Tuesday at 95 years of age. Here is a very nice write-up in the New York Times.
“We would have played for the Cup for nothing back then.”
It seems this man had the right attitude, an attitude that sometimes appears to be severly lacking in sports today.
Rest in Peace, Clint. And thanks for knowing what it truly meant to Be A Ranger!
In his own words, "Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger."
