The Nhl allows fighting and thus having one that is the best at it is a major factor. Neil is a ******* that has gone unchallenged by anyone on this roster that alone makes me sick but add in the injury and the fact he won a game in Ot makes me want to puke.. 95% of the people on this board are so passive and hippie like it hurts. what next 2 hand touch in the NFL because the collisions are to violent ? Now the Rangers get knocked out and we have to sit here and hope Boyle is ok for next year and I know Neil could and may have thrown that hit anyway but Scott running Spezza and getting suspended wouldn't hurt the Rangers at all.
I agree. The Rangers are tough physically and mentally (for a different discussion), and they need to play like they have all year: tough and gritty.

Scott should be in today's game. If he fights Neil, it's a good trade off. Neil's been a factor. Have to get him out of the game. Likewise with Konopka. We know how he's been in the faceoff circle. The Rangers need a fire sparked. Get physical and rough with discipline or have Ottawa take matching penalties. The boys got bullied and initimidated and it shows.

Mitchell hasn't done anything. Scott gives you fighting and intimidation if he lets his presence known early, which, in my opinion, needs to be done.
