In other news Deveaux was waived by FLA. If I were the Rangers I would send a claim in.
After his dirty elbows I think his time with the Rangers is done. No respectable team is going to want to ice a player that dirty or plain reckless unless he's got some other kind of good reason to keep him.

I'm not to worried about Gallant. To the extreme a guy like Scott didn't have enough skating ability to be and effective enforcer. You've got to be able to at least skate up to a guy and lay on a solid hit. Watching Colton Orr skate around trying to hit someone or reaching for them winded as the whistle blew was down right laughable at times. If it's just a matter of someone tying the guy up and taking him off the ice for 5 minutes, Bickel, Rupp, and Asham can be the designated punching bag. If they do it right, Gallant goes for an additional 10.

Real team toughness is going to be behind guys like Callahan, Rupp, and Boyle who skate well enough to lineup team
s guys and lay a solid hit and other guys like Nash and Kreider who can move right through the physical play coming their way.
