But with Bickel, Asham and Rupp in the lineup you know we'll see them.

Exactly. Look at Detroit, haven't had an enforcer in years and their flailing, consistently at the bottom of the league.

The Rangers do not play that style. They play a truculent, in your-face game. With that comes fighting. With fighting comes big players from other teams calling to try and swing momentum.

Does Detroit have any intense/violent rivalries like when any Atlantic division teams play each other?

lol.

Chicago and Detroit didn't have an enforcer in their lineups when they won the cup. Neither did Boston, Vancouver or New Jersey when they were in the finals.

Enforcers should belong in the pressbox.

I wouldn't label Bickel as an enforcer...

Plus this is the new NHL where if you have a tough guy he needs to be able to at least skate.

You can most certainly get away with not having a guy like Bickel. Players like Lucic, Prust, and Dubinsky are the kind of guys that are driving the ways of enforcers and goons extinct. They can fight but they are also adept at performing even the most basic of hockey skills.

as for hank, im sure torts is going to keep giving him starts until he gets into a groove. i doubt hank wants to sit on the bench until he's back up at his usual elite level.

if it was up to me,I would have those 3 in plus bring up Haley too..never have enough nastiness against Philly...this is a long bitter rivalry that a lot of you young kids dont understand...and before you call me a Dino or that I live in the past,Ranger management agrees with me more than most of you..or you guys wouldnt be complaining about Stu or a cream puff that dances around on the 4th line for 4 minutes..

Exactly. I don't mind Stu for tonight. I love seeing Tostito get beat down and still smack talk the rest of the game. People here think Bickel is useless, Tostito is worse.

You seem to care more about fighting than actually playing the game. Only reason you defend Bickel is because he fights. May I suggest boxing or MMA?

Vancouver played Rypien quite a bit. He passed away.

Boston had Thornton.

The Devils played Jansen and Boulton quite a bit last year.

No violent rivalries, no. But that's by their design. They ignore that aspect of the game and the sun still shines in the morning.

Yes that's the problem. Let's react to events from the 70's.

Nothing is worse than Zac Rinaldo. Easily the most useless hockey player I have ever come across. His entire existence is seemingly based off of dirty hits.

I think players like Prust, Lucic and Dubinsky would be ideal. Unfortunately the Rangers don't have any of those guys at the moment. They have Asham, Rupp and Bickel only.

I don't think anyone would argue that they would rather have Prust and Lucic over Rupp and Bickel

The Flyers have been punks every year just not in the 70's...If you are not prepared to play them,any year,they take liberties...its in their DNA and it will never change...if you are up buy 3 late or down by 3 late the cheap shots start...fight fire with fire...and again,thank God Sather thinks like me rather than 80 percent on here...for the record,if we are playing a soft team,im fine with 1 tough guy.
