Notice a pattern. With his vaunted shot,he should get PP goals by accident. Hitting off the opposing players stick or skate. Teams have taken away his shot. It's more like a slingshot than his 100 MPH blasts.

In the three games this weekend,Souray had 1 secondary assist at even strength. He's the answer to the Rangers PP woes. Surely the Rangers scouts were impressed with him. 20 year old Evgeny Grachev has 21 points in 45 games and some people say he can't hack it. Souray is Mr. Big Shot NHL All Star defenseman toiling in the AHL with 11 points in 22 games and he is worth wasting $2.7M next season to see if he has something left as a 35 year old.
Well said. There is no what was or what could be, there is only what is. And this man is simply not fit for an NHL roster...and that includes the Rangers. If they pick him up, then Sather is as short-sighted as a lot of the fans here.
