Not to knock him, just think he tends to get a bit too much hype around here.
But broken hands etc are not something that can be avoided, they are usually just a fluke or bad timing, you can't blame him for that. If some of the player's on the Rangers roster gave 110% every night like York does, instead of skating around like a bunch of figure skaters we would probably see some more broken bone injuries, because that's what happens when you actually block shots, etc.

He was an extremely versatile player and I still think it was the worst move Sather made (out of many bad ones). For a team that has trouble keeping the puck out of their own net, to trade their best penalty killer for a defenseman who has no clue what to do in his own end.
