It also helps to have boogy and prust two of the biggest fighters in the NHL
Hey Puck
I am here and like I said in Sept with Dubi Cally Prust Boogy and now Sauer we have a team with a edge. Avery is being allowed to be Avery and that ads to the nasty edge we have as a team. The Rangers have been standing up for each other which helps a team bond. Fighting is important sometimes do you Yankees fans remember all the fights u had as world series champs in the early 90's? How about the fighting 86 Mets ?

Fighting like blocking shots and hitting is another sign of the players on the team being commited to each other. We lead in all three categories as of now. It means the players are willing to sacrifice their bodies for each other and the teams goals.

Personally I don't think this team as of now is a real contender but it seems to be taking some large steps towards becoming one this season. Younger players are leading the way--Lundqvist, Girardi, Staal, Sauer, MDZ, Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, Stepan, Prust--some good contributions from vets as well. It's all very encouraging.

I still say if we add Richards we can be contenders. Richards feeding Gabby would help both of them rack up points, plus we're starting to see some real chemistry starting to form.

This team is a legitimate TEAM. Staal, Girardi, Sauer, Doobs, Cally, Ani, Prust, Boyle...even guys like Feds and Eminger are really gelling as a team right now. Fighting is an indication of that, especially since we've seen a ton of fights spawn from standing up for other guys, or to send messages not to start **** with our guys.

I thought so too.

I love it that Callahan and Dubinsky play really hard and are willing to fight occasionally, but we can't afford to lose one or both of them due to a fighting injury (see Chris Stewart on Colorado).

I like fighting.

No, I love fighting. The amount of energy watching Avery or Prust or wheoever go punch for punch with a guy the team and the crowd gains is awesome.

I just hate staged fighting, especially when the fight ends up being terrible.

regardless of what happened with Chris Stewart and the freak accident of him breaking his hand, I would still like to see Callahan pummel Sidney.

I agree completely! But it was still nice to see Prust lay at least a small beating on Carcillo. Carcillo, Briere and Crosby are the three players I hate most in the entire league.

LOL.

Those announcers' voices are as annoying as Redden's play.

The only people that hate fighting, are the ones that watch the retards on ESPN talk about how hockey would be bigger if there wasn't any fighting. Change your tampon and realize that hockey is a niche sport, and i LOVE it that way! And dropping the gloves does change games. This is a fast and emotional sport, just ask Maxine Talbot, who changed a series after dropping the gloves, on his way to a Stanley Cup.

If Gaborik would just play like last season and Henrik could be more consistent, I think we'd be somewhere between Sleeper and Contender. If Frolov can really benefit from an awoken Gaborik, Drury and Prospal come back in full force, and the young forwards keep up their ways, then I think we can be contenders. I think we'd just be one top 4 defenseman away from being legit at that point but there is much to live up to to get there.

All week with this andre johnson issue you hear quotes like "Not in this league this isn't the NHL" and I wanna throw something through the TV. The NFL doesn;'t fight on the field its f***in players just murder animals, shoot up clubs, run down pedestrians, drive drunk, fight on the sidelines and in the locker rooms and with Lebron james' friends. Yea real classy guys. Maybe they should worry about their actions off the field instead of trying to devalue another league because of it's "fighting". Oh and fighting in the NHL is so horrible but the sh** NFL'ers do in a fumble pile is better?

Please the fighting in the NHl has nothing to do with its popularity or lack thereof. The damn league is spread too thin because of horrific expansion ideas, the scoring and offense is minimal, the grit is LEAVING the game and the incompetence is rising especially from the announcing and officiating.

League was at its peak when there was a perfect blend of rough stuff, fighting, hitting, standing up for teammates and elite players playing together.

ESPN was never smart they just deliver sports news and entertain. The biggest money draw gets the most backing. If they're so worried about integrity they wouldn't show "the Decision". It's a horrific joke to listen to ESPN do anything hockey related.

Well said...

If this league wants to get back to it's glory...it has to get rid of Bettman...he is killing the sport...put Shananhan or a Weekes or someone who knows the sport..not some NBA guy who knows nothing of the sport.

The rationale for adding inches to players' heights for years has been that they play on skates, therefore they actually are 3 inches taller on the ice. John Davidson used to say this all the time. And the Rangers have been doing it for years.

The problem is that this rationale is used selectively. If one guy is measured in bare feet, the next one can't be measured in skates. If Prust is measured at 6-2, then a player who is 6-2 in bare feet, should be listed as 6-5. Brian Boyle should be listed as 6-9 or 6-10. Then the whole thing gets to be ridiculous.
