Of the current Rangers the closest comparison would be Stralman. NHL was a bit tougher back then. A forward got around your goalie and it was fair game with the slashes, crosschecks and rabbit punches to the back of the head.
He's been coaching for a long time. The NHL is a tough league to get into, always has been. I had totally forgotten about that.

On the subject of Greenway, he'll one one of the guys I'll be trying to keep an eye on next year. He grew early, not a lot of kids I'v seen as filled out at his age. Could be an intriguing prospect.
