Say what you will about Michael Nylander, but the reality of it is he has had a better impact to this club than any center has since Wayne Gretzky...and that's a 10 year span.
On Nylander- I will agree with the major concensus that he need sto shoot the puck more. There's no question about that. But even with that his passing, boardwork, positioning, stickhandling, and overall production far outweigh any of his shortcomings.
When was the last time a guy signed here and was expected to be nothing more than mediocre and ended up playing on the top line and producing the numbers that Nylander has?
I heard the boo's reigning down for Nylander recently and it really hits home. Personally I don't think any player should be booed in his own building. Especially not a player that is relied upon as the clubs best set up man. To me it shows no class at all. I think the guy is a tremendous asset to the Rangers and should be resigned next season again.
