i think the NYR are trying to go in the Detroit red wings direction . Det has not been a fighting team but has some players with grit and toughness .
going forward : Mcilrath if and when , Miller if and when , yogan , Dorsett , cally Ck are all physical players . they are not fighters but they are physical players . Puck possesion and forecheck is as much about physicality and toughness as anything . Staged fighting is dead and dying .
Board battles and winning loose pucks is where its at not fighting majors . Im not saying you should let teams take liberties with your stars but you wanna win games the way to win them is holding onto the puck and making plays , something that the last few weeks the NYR have gotten better at .
