Pretty ironic lol. He did lead the Penguins a playoff points a few years back. With his shot, put him with Brassgod or Stepan for a few shifts and I think he scores some goals too.

As I said the guy has a shot--lots of velocity and with some accuracy. He's capable of driving the puck through a goalie. Sometimes he takes too much time getting it off. Not tonight. Huge ****ing goal--game winner and chicken dinner.

He's a type cast guy. If he played on a bad team, he'd move up to the third or second line and have a good season.

I respect him for being the first Ranger to come to the aid of the guy who had Cancer and his Daughters requested some donations to have their Father attend a Ranger game. I won't forget it.

Class act, unsung, great shot, tough, reliable defensively, a perfect 4th line wing, who deserves more ice time...

Guy has been a calming presence on this team. You can tell he provides leadership.

Wouldn't go as far as to say "class act."

He's definitely been better than what I thought he'd be though.

He is a relatively clean tough guy honestly.

He has been here, and he's played hard, but not as borderline as he did as a Pen and Flyer, but after his goon tour with the Pens i'll never consider him a "class" guy.

Absolutely classless move by him. Thankfully, he's never shown signs of that with the Rangers yet.

1st time he has been suspended in his entire career in the NHL. I wouldn't call that a "goon tour"

Yeah. He's been a clean player on the Rangers so far.

It was probably just the Penguin in him.

Schenn takes a run from the blue-line at a Pens d-man. That whole series was like that. Asham comes to his defenseman's aide and gets his hands up and hits him in the face with his stick.

If that is all he has done over his career, considering the role he is in, I wouldn't consider that a "goon tour"

It looked like it was supposed to be a cross-check to the upper chest. Schenn whipped his head back.

If a Rangers playoff game gets out of hand and Lucic is running around like that and takes a run at Girardi or McDonagh I hope he steps up again.

He was clearly more of a "borderline" player with the Pens then he has been for us.

He cross-checked him high and then when he went to the ground he went after him again.

That's literally the furthest away you can get from "class act" in the NHL.

I don't agree with that. He has only played ~30 games with the Rangers due to his injury and shortened season. Plays like you see are the reason he is here. He can chip in the odd goal and protect his teammates.

He hasn't done anything like that as a Ranger. He's been a tough guy, but he's not going around taunting dudes and throwing his stick around. That's a fact. Asham can be effective without playing like that, and he HAS been effective without playing like that.

He has one dirty hit in his career which he was suspended for. Its not like he was Ryan Hollweg deliberately trying to injure someone every shift. Other than that OMG wow he instigated a fight! Never seen such violence outside of an R-rated movie. Big deal. And as for the gesture after knocking out Beagle he apologized and then the next game he manned up and fought John Erskine and settled it there. This isnt Matt Cooke here Asham has always been an honest tough guy.
