I am still a FIRM believer this team needs more toughness somewhere in the line-up. If Prust goes down, which I am surprised he has not fighting all of these guys who are much larger than he is all of the time, this team lacks ANY sort of toughness.

Sauer is too important to lose. Dubinsky should keep his gloves on. Avery is a decent fighter if he needs to be.

Boyle shouldn't fight. Callahan shouldn't fight.

It's not that I want a fight all of the time. Its having guys who can respond and stick up for their teammates. The Rangers are lacking.

Also, Valentenko is still in the minors. If Sauer is out, I would recall him in a heartbeat.
When's Rupp due back?
