York was/is my favorite modern Ranger, my favorite ranger during this 7 year debacle. He gave it his all every single night, and thats what set him apart. He had a very impressive rookie campaign in which he showed some scoring touch. He is a nice complimentary player, and he proved that playing on the FLY Line.

But with all that said, he is no more than a 2nd/3rd line energy guy. Even though he doesnt have crazy talent, he's a fan favorite, and isn't that all that really matters?
