one good season nothing since and wow he is horrible any where near the net. Blocks shots for a living because anything else he is horrible the guy handles the puck like a bomb is taped to his hands.

Mike Rupp
great locker room guy but wow the skill set has fallen off the face of the earth.. no hands no legs and lost every fight this season time for Man****ter to get the call up..

Arron Asham
slow (maybe the groin bad?) hasn't won a fight nothing to the table and looks lost.

Derrick Stephan looks like a small Boyle no hands so far at all and blocking shots is great and in own zone looked fine but the offesne needs to come and quick.

Jeff Halpern complete bust so far can win a draw horrible in O zone and whats the need for him if the face off part is failing?

This is a very incomplete team
1 top line 1/2 a second line and 4 defensemen
the depth is not there all spare parts come on guess the excuses need to stop call these guys out and get moving
Rupp has looked slow but he is still one of the better player enforcers around. The age of that bottom-line is troubling though.

Halpern I think has looked good.

Stepan needs to play better but people calling for him to be traded (not you Dagoon) are off their rockers.

Boyle is the ideal #3/4 center. He needs offensive wingers to play with in order to balance out his strong defensive game. The Rangers don't have that at the moment so he looks lost.
