He doesn't play angry. Angry doesn't mean you have to fight or do something stupid. Angry means playing hard all the time. If you hit someone you hit them as hard as you can--cleanly--but even so with the idea of knocking them on their ass. This should happen all the time--every game.

An example of that is Taylor Pyatt. He apparently threw quite a number of body checks last year but I can't really remember one big hit. He'll bump people. He'll bang around in the corners with them a bit but he never tries to flatten anyone.
it seems like this is the problem with most of the Rangers players that have size, they dont know how to use it the right way.. when your two most physical forwards are under 6' in Dorsett and Callahan, your team has more issues..
