I feel bad for fans who watch, watch, and watch, yet never seem to pick up on fundamental basics of the game. Clearly, anyone who is going to **** on Halpern's performance or try to implicate him in team wide, systemic issues that Halpern has hardly anything to do with falls into the aforementioned category.
Not every guy on your team has to be a scorer, and the Rangers wouldn't have a problem scoring if Richards and Gaborik were playing up to expectations. Nor would secondary scoring be an issue if losers like Boyle, Pyatt, Asham, Gilroy, etc. contributed. None of them do, they're all worse defensively than Halpern, and they all make more money.
Anyone who thinks defense is primarily about blocking shots or accumulating hits has a lot to learn about the sport.
