What do you mean there was no Ranger there? Is Prust no longer on the team? Maybe I'd be more concerned if, in the same game, Wojtek Wolski didn't elbow Daniel Alfredsson in the face and send him to the locker room. (And talk about the beating that Wolski got for that play...oh, wait...) Or if you could explain how having a goon would have any effect on whether or not Neil plays the same way he plays every game, regardless of the opponent, regardless of what goons they may or may not have.

Field the team with the most talent? Dude, if we fielded the team with the most talent, none of these discussions would be taking place, because the Rangers would be a Stanley Cup contending team. You're right, you need both. What you don't seem to understand is that, while you may need both, one will always be MUCH, MUCH more important, and that's the one that this team doesn't have anywhere even close to enough off.

You're sitting here talking about the Penguins signing goons. The Penguins ARE one of the most talented teams in the league. They have a balance. We don't have talent. We have two NHL-caliber skill players on the team. TWO! And one of them is basically a sniper who is at his best when he isn't carrying the puck. So you might as well call it one.

If this team was as talented as the Penguins, then I wouldn't give a hoot if they carried a goon.
Just two guys with NHL caliber
