He does the little things. It isn't pretty, but he normally gets the job done and he actually has decent stick skills. I wouldn't say he is "tough" although he will fight.

Also, you can find YT clips of even the best defenders being made to look silly. It happens.

You guys really don;t have much going on leading up to game time. Pages and pages on RoR. It's crazy. The team is playing well of late. They are slowly starting to gel and now we want to inject more players into the roster? It's asinine.

Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make.

Hemsky is very skilled. But very injury prone, unfortunately.

Not only does O'Brien suck. He is signed for 2 more years. The Rangers don't have the space to waste $2M on SOB.

I feel as though HF s singlehandedly keeping this rumor going. Lets see if everything quiets down.

I still think it would be a strange move to go for O'Reilly right now. Still, Glenn had his name in on Heatley, Kessel, Wheeler, Schultz, Kovalchuk, just about any big player movement you could name.

Define the little things? He doesn't produce points or play the PP units. He doesn't get much SH ice time and this is with an AHL Avs defense. What exactly does he bring to the table for this team at 2m per for 2 more years after this one? He's also had a bad team reputation with the Canucks for partying late and not attending some practices.

His contract is an abomination for what he brings to the table, in my opinion. In my viewings of him, he constantly gets schooled by other NHL players.

This. I don't think you guys understand just how much of a nightmare he is to watch.

O'Byrne. Hunwick. Zanon. Hunwick.

These names played before him last game. He's been that dreadful. He's tough in all the wrong moments, and a defensive nightmare. And if you think this team takes bad penalties NOW... hahahaha.

Weren't the Rangers also interested in Turris last year?

Which begs the question. Is it that the Rangers really are in on these guys in a real way? Or is it that the Rangers front office is unusually leaky and Sather is just doing his due diligence.

Didn't realize he had (2) more years after this one.

He blocks shots, is a pain in the ass to play against, has decent hands.

Slow-footed though for sure. He is better than Bickel. About on par with Eminger.

To stray away from all the ROR talk for a moment...

Can anyone think of some cheap d-men we could pick up at the deadline to shore up the bottom pairing?

Hasn't been injured for a while now. I always thought he was going to be a 100pt player after the 06 season.

#1 target for me is Gonchar to play with Staal on the 2nd pairing. Boyle is another one, but he'll cost a fortune to get. I also like Regehr and Leopold for a bottom pair role.
