Asham is just a layover, Haley will get his shot eventually.

This. Asham is gone in the offseason and Haley is getting his spot. He has to. His contract is 1-way next year. Either he makes the team or he gets waived.

In case you don't know Asham and Orr have met before back when Asham was a Flyer. It wasn't pretty as far as Asham was concerned. I have a lot of respect for Asham but he's not a heavyweight and anyone who thinks he is is out to lunch on the subject.

As fighters go--this generations Joe Kocur is Colton Orr. He's a smaller heavyweight but he punches as hard as anyone out there. Asham is a very good fighter who throws punches with real intent to hurt but he's even smaller than Orr and he doesn't hit near as hard. It works well on guys like Jay Beagle and he can hold his own against most fighters out there but not the elite guys.

Not sure I agree, eco. Kocur was fearsome.

kocur's fists were lethal. he could literally break faces. orr is tough and willing but not as *scary* as kocur. kocur looked and fought like his water bottle was filled with pcp.

i can't think of too many on kocur's level. probert, chris simon, link gaetz...? orr is more like...nilan?

How many faces did Kocur literally break? Orr broke at least one.

Not saying that at all. But Kocur is a top-5 heavy weight. Remember what he was like when on Detroit?

Thinking on it now, Detroit has had it's share. Kocur. Probert. Grimson.

And that's fair. I don't think that "this generations Joe Kocur is Colton Orr" is an unfair statement, though.

And each one of those guys could play hockey if there were no fighting.

Didn't mean to say that Orr was a better fighter than Kocur. In Kocur's time there was a lot more fighting though. Orr compares to Kocur in the respect that he's the guy that punches the hardest in this particular time and he can really hurt people. Both Kocur and Probert were NHL qualtiy players--Probert was a very good player. Grimson not so much. Domi was a good player. There were fighters that were good then and some who were not. Brashear was a good player for a while. Mick Vukota-no. A Kocur--a Probert were scary as fighters and could handle most anyone but they weren't goons IMO because they could play. A Vukota, John Kordic, Troy Crowder, Scott Parker etc. etc. were examples of goons.

Anyway how I entered this was on whether Arron Asham is a serious deterrent to the real heavyweights like Orr, McIntrye, Parros, Scott--he's not.

Yeah I'd call him up and sit Pyatt on Saturday. Would be 100% onboard with that plan.

Having one enforcer who plays <5m a night and maybe gets into a fight against the other team's designated goon/enforcer isn't a deterrent to any entire team when the rest of the Rangers who are on the ice for 90% of the game have trouble sticking up for themselves/each other on most nights. I'm pretty sure at this point, everyone in the East knows the Rangers can be more or less bullied all night long on any given night because we're so afraid of taking a retaliatory penalty. The whole team needs to play with a little more snarl. I'm not sure if, at 27, Haley is going to improve on his overall hockey game enough to warrant a spot on the Rangers. Hopefully McIlrath will eventually provide some of that extra attitude for the team.

I think Dorsett's eventual addition may push Pyatt out of the lineup if he doesn't improve -- he's been brutal.

It should also push Boyle to 4th line center where he belongs.
