What I don't understand, is why Ranger fans would go out of their way to rattle this guy on home ice, in the hopes that he will screw up and potentially cost us the game to some degree.

????

What is that about? He's clearly shaken when he gets the big boos. And they start before he's done ANYTHING, good or bad.

It's like a mob mentality. Why would good players want to play here and deal with that?

I know that guys we are counting on to be BIG impact guys, (guys like Messier, any goalie, etc) will get booed when they fail to live up to expectations, but this is nothing like that. He's just a (for the most part) solid defenseman. He is NOT "the BIG contract that will change everything".

No, he's not cheap, but I don't think his pay is really out of line.

Certainly there have been (are) bigger disappointments on this squad in recent years. I don't hear the boos for them (so quickly).

What gives?
