How about Boris Mironov? Although he was pretty solid when paired with Malakhov.

The Pens defense looks terrible. Outside of Letang (who isn;t the best defensive player) and Orpik there defense should be beaten consistently.

The list of bad Dmen for this team is so long its laughable, and it's unfair to tab a young guy like this with a tag like that.
Bickel is way worse than all of them IMO. Maybe Purinton or Eriksson challenge him.

Neither of them were #1/2 d-men but if the Rangers had actual top-pairing d-men available and they could have been slotted in as #3/4 the team would have been one of the best in the entire league easily.

They moved the puck VERY WELL and they kept shooters to the outside well. The puck never seemed to be in the Rangers zone all that much when they were out there.

Never understood the Malik hate.

By the end of his tenure he wasn't playing well, but he was an important part of the team for a while, without a doubt.

you have a very different recollection then. that pair was um... interesting for sure.

i can remember, vividly, lots of acting like a dufus, frequently falling down, making wrong reads and generally playing like creme puffs. i mean both of those guys avoided physical contact like their lives depended on it and handling pucks for them was sometimes like watching guys wearing blindfolds.

and that whole "failure to shoot the puck" phase rozy went thru was painful.

i can also remember where both were benched for the above attributes.

but yeah, i guess they werent that bad...

They had their moments. The first year they were here they were a very good pairing, IMO.

That's because he had finally had enough of his home fans booing him and he just didn't enjoy playing. He went to TB after that and looked good.

I think he finally just said "**** it"

Neither shied away from taking a hit from what I remember. Neither were all that physical in terms of hits but they were normally getting hit quite a bit.

Rozsival is not a soft player. He is not physical though.

A win tonight, would be a very good win. Get's the team over .500. Evens the score with Pens the way they have with Philly and Boston. And gets the Rangers past the tough part of the schedule they had start the season.

Mironov was solid for us. Not great, but certainly not terrible.

My "worst defenseman" that I can remember is probably Igor Ulanov. He was TERRIBLE here. He wasn't here long, but considering he had a decent (if unremarkable) career before coming to NY, I was amazed at how bad he was. Brutal.

Purinton is up there too, although his absolute willingness to defend his team earns him some points in my book. He was mean, dirty as hell, and took way too many penalties, but he was one of the nastiest players I've seen in a NY uniform. And from all accounts, his teammates loved him. He would have had a better career as a winger.

People hate Malik because he was a big tall guy with the tenacity of a koala bear on lithium. He also would appear to play defense while day-dreaming about vacationing on the Amalfi Coast. He was terrible. Great moment in the shootout though.

Ulanov and Purinton get my vote for worst Rangers defensemen since the '94 Cup.

Essentially a two line, two defense pairing team. Brutal. Team will be gassed come playoff time unless Glen adds in some pieces.
