me too. this team will never earn any respect waiting for the officials or league management to keep things 'clean'. the only way to do that is for the rangers to create an environment where opponents phyisically fear overstepping the line. like a pavlovian response...'i will avoid the rangers goalie because, if i don't, i will be physically hurt'. 'i will keep my elbow down because, if i use it to concuss a ranger, worse will happen to me'.
yahoo did a story on this today. basically calledout the rangers for being soft, not protecting teammates...crying for suspensions instead of taking care of their own business. i totally agree. maybe messier would have been the right coach...
