The Rangers biggest problem with getting run, cheap-shot, and hit dirty, IS THEIR INABILITY TO MAKE OTHER TEAMS PAY BY SCORING ON THE GOD DAMN POWERPLAY! If the Rangers had the #1 PP in the league, do you think other team's coaches would be sending out their ding-dong squad telling them to run Nash and Richards?

NO NO NO NO.
I think this is an excellent point. We aren't able to make teams by with physical retaliation and somehow, our PP "retaliation" is about as intimidating as Matt Gilroy with a feathered pillow. Why wouldn't teams take liberties against us?
