I did name Pratt and some others but clearly I couldn't get everyone but I'm not necessarly a big fan of Pyatt...Svitov...Bootland....Moreau
I would think by now the Rangers as a team know what they are or arent, they have to know that they arent the most physical team out there and while there are a couple of guys who can throw the body around, they know i'm sure that Ottawa has a much more physical presence. That being said I dont know what will happen tomorrow with Ott, i'm sure they will play physically and take it to the Rangers much like they did a few weeks back. Its up to the Rangers to battle through the physical play and play 60 mins of hockey, unfortunatly that hasnt been their strong suit of late.
When will the day come when rather than having to battle through the physical play....WE CAN RESPOND WITH SOME OF OUR OWN...AND DICTATE THE PHYSICAL PLAY?
doesn't bother me. I am a Kings fan. Norstrom is to the Kings what Messier was to The Rangers the couple of year before he retired, remenents of fond memories that is overvalued on a non competative team and undervalued on a contender. As for Push, good prospect, but to many like him on the Kings. To aquire a offensive minded prospect to bolster the blueline where the only true talent is Jack Johnson is a no brainer.
I love Pushkarev and I am disappointed that he has only gotten one game with the Kings, however Norstrom has REALLY declined he is a step slower and isn't as succesful at shutting down top foward lines. He is overpaid also. I wouldn't really want him on the Rangers.
The Sens have nothing in terms of offense right now with Spezza and now Fisher hurt, so they could just come out hitting. And for some reason last game Volchenkov wasn't matched up against Jagr. This time he definately will be, along with Phillips.
The problem still remains that the Rangers lack secondary scoring. They've depended on Jagr too long to be a top goal scorer. Of course the other teams in the league are going to play a tight defensive game around him. Under Renney they have a almost non-existent forcheck, which isn't helping Jagr find any open ice either.
