Rupp and Bickel couldn't skate an effective regular shift. You simply can not carry players like that and be an effective hockey team.
Dorsett is going to replace what this team lost in Prust.
Dominic Moore is a fiesty and physical player.
This notion that the Rangers are soft is a fallacy.
You also can't sit back and take a rear-end banging the way Tortorella had this team playing. Collapsing and giving puck possession to the opposition by default. No forecheck. No transition. No adaptation.
Watch Vigneault push the pace. Defense will attack and transition. Moore will help defensive zone possession because of his faceoff prowess. Forecheck will be stronger.
There's just unfortunately no room for a goon anymore. The new goon is a Prust/Dorsett type of guy. Fortunately the Rangers have one. I wanted Dorsett in the Nash deal. Luckily we got him later in the Gaborik deal.
