Just some updated stats since he has returned from his 3 game benching (AKA our last longest winning streak):
8 GP, -4, 0 Points, 4 Blocks (1 in the last 5), 9 SOG (1 in the last 5); the Rangers are 3-3-2 since his fateful return, including a 4 game losing streak.
Aw-ful. He really does contribute nothing and he still racks up the minutes. And while he does have a good amount of hits (36 in those 8 GP), they have to be the weakest excuses for hits that have no impact on the play whatsoever.
I found it funny that he was mentioned in today's article on Yahoo! Sports on player who have yet to score this year:
Brian Boyle, New York Rangers (17 games)
Boyle has gone 17 games without a goal, and has been held without a shot on goal in eight of them. In his first 17 games last season, he had one goal and two assists; maybe he’s just a slow starter no matter when the season starts? Or maybe a hair cut and a new stick, both of which Boyle received recently, will do the trick?
They just forgot to mention he hasn't had a 'fast start' in 3 years...
