well that's what i mean.

In many the hall of fame will always be a numbers game, despite whether that is right or wrong.

hanging a jersey is like appreciating a contribution. maybe they werent the best at any one thing but they were great because they weren't.

i'd like to believe there isnt a person around who couldn't root for someline like Adam Graves or Kelly Buchberger or other players who represent a passion and "heart" for the game that is missing.

Graves spent 10 years with a club. That's hard enough in pro sports nowadays let alone a NY team, let alone the rangers.

if this team, with all of it's talent played with the heart that graves did we'd be a dynasty.

watching graves was more than watching a guy get garbage goals, watching graves was like watching the heart of the rangers continue to beat, no matter how many times it "Should have" just given up.
