Eric Godard?

He cleared waivers.
Can throw fists with ANY super heavy in the league...

Yay or nay?

He's not a defenseman, he's a RW.

And no. Where's the need? The Rangers just signed Rupp, a player that can fight and is a significantly better hockey player than Godard.

No. Godard is only a slightly better player than Boogaard. Rupp is much better than either.

Not at all sir. As much as I like Rupp.

It'd be a pointless move. Pass.

I wouldn't be totally opposed to grabbing him on waivers and keeping him on the NHL roster for a little while. Then in a couple of weeks drop him down to the AHL through waivers again and the 'Pack then have a heavy to protect the kids.

Also, Godard is on a different level then Rupp when it comes to throwing fists.

As a fighter Godard is better than Rupp--no question. Godard can seriously hurt people.

As a player Eric's a 3-5 minute a night guy. A subpar 4th liner. He's been that for a long while. He's not a guy who takes a regular 4th liners shift. He's not a great skater or body checker (due to mobility issues), rarely scores and is not particularly good defensively. He doesn't penalty kill either. If we needed someone to beat the bejesus out of opponents--great but I don't think we do. Rupp was brought in for two major reasons--1) take some of the heat off of Prust who is too small to go with the real heavyweights and 2) he can take a regular shift--score once in a while and be decent defensively--and his skating is better than Godard so he hits more.

Now if the Rangers wanted to claim Godard to protect some of their guys in the AHL and be an insurance policy if Rupp got hurt--that's also okay but there's no room for him right now on our NHL roster.

I also agree with everything. If he's going to make an AHL roster, he might as well make ours IMO.

The age of the goon is over until an incident occurs where this team gets run over by some goon.

Its a recurring cycle. People say "we don't need those types of players" for a couple of years, and then something happens and everyone will cry "but we should have had someone there to do something! Maybe it would have been different!"

I am not saying a goon is needed all the time. Nor am I saying they aren't needed. But having depth in terms of toughness, or anything is never a bad thing within an organization.

Doesn't make a lot of sense anymore to carry a guy who can't play the game at all, which describes Godard pretty well

But why not grab him and try and slip him through waivers? If Rupp goes down he may not be a the worst spot call-up for a game against Toronto (Orr, Rosehill, Brown) or Ottawa (Carkner, Neil, Konopka)

The caveat with Godard that's being overlooked here is that Dallas signed him to a 2 year deal. 2-way this year and 1-way next season. They're waiting for Barch's contract to expire. Don't want Godard on a 1-way next year.

Rupp and Prust should be enough against most teams in the league.

If he cleared waivers no one wants him. A fighter that can't play and no one wants means the laws of physics decree he goes to the flyers.
