In 30 games with the Rangers this season, he has ONE ASSIST and ZERO GOALS and is a -5.
If that does not scream out useless scrub, then I dont know what to tell you.
For comparison sakes, Matt Kassian with the Senators has 1 Goal and 0 assists. George Parros has 1 Goal and 1 Assist.
Halpern is playing with goons most nights and is shooting just below 2.5%. Meaning even though he's playing an extremely defensive role and wouldn't be putting up many points to begin with, he also is having ridiculously bad luck.
And you know as well as the rest of us do that 4th liners aren't there to score points. Stop being disingenuous.

Halpern - costs the Habs nothing.
Clowe - would not cost the Habs nothing.
I'd be impressed if even the biggest Clowe hater on the planet would be pissed at picking him up off the waiver wire.
Well, we wanted a face-off guy... we got one! RH to boot.
What's so special about a RH shot? Isn't most of the population right-handed or is this just something the habs were missing with their current line-up?
Hard to complain about a move that didn't cost the team anything. Where is Dominic Moore anyways, How come he's not playing? Since we're going back down memory lane I miss Robert Lang. Didn't realize he's 43. Moore is exactly 10 years younger.
