Granted that I was fairly new to hockey back in the Park, Rolfe, Seiling, Neilson days but I never cared much for Rod Seiling. I really don't think a Girardi comparison is that apt. If I were to compare Girardi to any of that group it would be Neilson. To me Seiling was a bit of a cream puff. Neilson had a more physical, grind it out style. Just a solid defense first guy. Always take the body--and not take too many penalties doing it.

And I actually think the Rangers would have liked very much if Seiling could have brought more offense--helped the pwp. As it was when I began following the team--the two primary pointmen were Park and Bobby Rousseau who was a forward--mostly a center. Rousseau was a good player, very smart but he'd been around a long time mostly with the Canadiens and getting close to done.
