you (haters) are all horrible people. Condemning a guy before he's even played a season.

Call me crazy, but I'll take Malik back as the #7 d-man if he accepts a 1 year, 1 million offer

Done. You're crazy.

I'd much rather bring Struds back to fill that role. Malik clearly had problems with being benched last season; he doesn't seem to be the type to be satisfied with a #7 role. And we all know how great Struds is in the locker room.

Please! No more Jason Strudwick on this team. Not even as a 12th defender.

Things you do for Love etc

Marek is for sure serviceable and will get a job. I did not like his play much however he pretty much sucked it up and did what coach wanted him to do; I give him respect and wish him well.
Why do people knock Struds?? We all know his limitations; if you watch playoff rewinds he is the ONLY D man clearing the crease in both series. Jmho...

I say we resign Malik just so that Redden doesn't have to be the scapegoat!

He was miscast, but played well most of the time.

Okay. Flame away.

BTW, Bleed Ranger Blue, I have the same hunch about Redden.
He was made the scapegoat because if you are that big and refuse to use your body or come to the aid of your teammates you are gonna get booed. If I was that big i'd be drilling people into the boards. I remember several incidents where even Jag threw himself into a scrum and that pu$$y would just stare at it.

Oh and there was this other thing called horrific giveaways, like when you throw the puck blindly into your own slot in a critical time in the game. Like in the Buffalo series.

But it's the fans fault . Your'e a hockey player. You cant take a little booing? Man up.

Good riddance

Sucked it up? By not shaking Renney's hand after a game? By whining and sulking about it?

That's not why I booed him. If you can't hit, skate or generate offense, then you damn well better one helluva positional defensive defenseman, and he just wasn't. At some point, I just couldn't watch the guy abandon his assignment or have forwards walk around him like he was tied to a post anymore. The real problem was the Renney's patience for his performance ran out WAY after the fans' did.

Thank you, Melrose.

Anyway, I still wish him luck. He seemed like a decent guy.

The fight with Avery....

The hissy fit storming out of Greenburg


Talk about a guy who needs a fresh start.
Malik was hated at MSG wayyyyyyy before any of this occurred.

Yeah he sure was a terrible defensive dman.

185 Games as a Ranger +67 during that time.

Also don't call a guy who generates about 20 points a year on avg a guy who generates no offense.

Forget it, your talking to the wrong crowd. The guy did the right thing 9 times out of 10 but he gets crucified more than the Poti's, Drivers's & Patrick's - again, cause he's a big guy they all think he shouldve been hitting people left and right. Fact is, he was effective on that Jagr unit, the scoresheets and the winning record shows that.

That's the absolutely worst part of the Rangers crowd, without question. They pick a player every season and will try do drive him out of town, no matter what. These people are from the crowd, but they're not fans.

Malik didn't really fit into our system, and he caught a few unlucky breaks early on in his tenure here, and the crowd never gave him a chance after that so he was always too nervous to step it up.
So he may have sucked big time in NY, but he's still a promising player.

Also: Struds is the man no matter what anyone says. He gave it 115% every night he played, and of course he couldn't log a lot of minutes, but he filled his role perfectly.

What do you expect? Every defenseman to be a Marc Staal or a Jeff Beukeboom? For all intents and purposes Malik did his job, albeit without much physicality. He had a few unlucky breaks, but because he was chosen to be crucified by the public (especially after another whipping boy's departure - I'm talking about Poti), every mistake was magnified 10x.
