Boyle: 1 goal
Halpern: 0 goals
Powe: 0 goals
Haley/Asham/Bickel/Mashinter: 1 goal combined
Miller: 2 goals, coming in 1 game.
This team won't be going anywhere relying on 6 players (Hagelin, Callahan, Richards, Nash, Stepan, Gaborik). The names are good ones, but the Rangers MUST get some semblance of offensive contribution from their bottom 6.
There's seems to be this idea that the "bottom six" must be plugs, goons, defensive specialists, etc.
When we get guys outside of the "top 6" that display offensive abilities, they are discarded as non-torts guys...
