Move away from players like him, and focus on players with the ability to bury the puck in the net. Not just during shootouts.
characterizations like this piss me off. Nobody says he's elite first of all; although he has certain skills which are elite. He is almost never invisible; his dogs the puck, plays a tough game and gets under the opponent's skin. There is nothing soft about his game. the fact that he can be knocked over due to his size does not make him soft or invisible. He wins alot of puck battles and has great vision, stick handling ability and passing skills. We need him right now and the arbitration filing ensures that he will be a Ranger. Right now we have two 4th line centers making a million plus. One (Boyle) should be traded for a pick and cap space magically opens.
