One season. 1995, the lockout year. The NY hangover shortened season(that year we were shorthanded more times than any team, and still managed to score the fewest SH goals in the league!) where we were lucky to survive a future talent dynasty in Quebec, then got obliterated against the bigger, deeper Flyers team.

Who did the Rangers have in 1993-94? Kocur? He was just an enforcer. Kypreos, the punching bag who lost every one of his fights until he was knocked out by Vandenbussche and had to retire? Tikkanen was not tough, he was more chippie. Graves was not a fighter, he was tough because he was willing to take the punishment as the garbageman, but didn't intimidate opponents. Messier was the closest thing we had to a tough guy with skill, but he only fought to change the momentum of the game, not to defend others.
