And he still has some offensive ability. It doesn't hurt us at all to re-sign him for cheap.

If better options become available, he can earn his NHL salary in Hartford or be traded. It's a no-lose proposition for the Rangers.
A very logical unbiased post I think, and I agree. Waaay better than wasting $$ and cap space on some bogus "enforcer".

Also: Excellent post by Ola
