This guy has more skill than Prust. He just needed to shake off the rust.

He's an agitator and he's doing a very good job of it this series. Love it!

He's been great in back to back games.

This is what I expected from Dorsett, he's definitely been able to shake the rust off.

I'm thinking to myself..."My God, we got Dorsett in that trade too???"

I heard it was Boll at first and I was like, alright, I wish it was Dorsett....BAM. Guy just is a pain in the ass to play against. He still isn't at 100% but he has added a nice dimension

Dorsett has been a very pleasant surprise after shaking off the rust.

I was hoping it was also Boll. He is a tough sob...

I've watched this guy play since he's been in the league on center ice and I was thrilled when we got him. He has more skill offensively than Prust even though he isn't nearly the penalty killer.

Have a feeling Im going to have a love/hate relationship with this guy.

He toed the line perfectly yesterday. The move on Green was sort of a fake slew-foot that got under Green's skin and did the job. It was a hair away from going differently.

He is similar to Chris Neil. He is a pot stirrer. He runs around, a bit out of control, hitting, chirping, etc. Sometimes he gets called. Sometimes the other team gets called. That is the way he plays. No one can ever say the effort isn't there.

I'm seeing some Avery in him. If he can keep up what he's been doing and chip in with the odd goal, then he's gonna become a fan favorite.

He has been picking up steam since his Game 2 comeback. People are starting to see the type of player he is. He plays hard, good defensively, hits, blocks shots. He is a heart and soul player teams love to have and he has a bit of "crazy" in him which this team has lacked fora while.

VERY EXCITED

Rangers 4-1 since Dorsett entered lineup. Coincidence?

Not at all. He brings energy and is a pain to play against. He is bringing back last years Ranger hockey with his style and other players are feeding off of it. Namely Boyle, Pyatt, Kreider.

He's a lot faster than I anticipated.

Well said, there's going to be a lot of 15 jerseys in the Garden crowd next year

Picked a fight one time with John Scott--got in the first punch--his fist could barely reach Scott's jaw. Scott then pummeled the **** out of him.

A very good agitator with some skill--kind of Avery like though maybe a little more team and hockey focused.

He is Chris Neil-like with a bit more offense and not quite as good of a fighter.

Well said.

I was impressed with his shot last night. That wrist shot he ringed off the post right before Pyatt's goal was a rocket.

Watching the replay right now...Dorsett has just gotten better and better as the series went on...could have had two goals.

He reminds me of Avery without the stigma.

We now have last year's style with way more skill and better depth on defense. This team is light years better than last.

Everybody talks about Hank how great he was. But what about all the blocks from Dorsetts line (Boyle and Pyatt incl) ? It seemed that the shots from the Caps never went through to Hank. That goes for all lines though

He doesn't remind me of that cancer Avery at all.

I think Chris Neil is a much better comparison, although not nearly the same fighting ability.
