Don't you think if he was a capable nhl player who could fight he would already be in the nhl? Every team could use that skill set. The hawks certainly could.

He was traded in a clean swap for mashinter who is not an nhl player.

That should pretty much tell you everything about beach.

He's barely an ahl player in terms of skill right now. Can't even handle the puck properly when he is by himself.

Not worried about Miller and the yo-yo effect, he needs to stay down just so he can play. I think he'd stay up if some of these other guys were moved and he'd probably look ok.

Not upset about Asham, really like the guy.

Yes, I can't think of anything the Rangers need more than Asham fighting someone he's not mad at for no reason.

Not a bad lineup at all... Not great, but definitely better than what we've been icing

I have seen him play, and he is not an nhl caliber player.

I think it's purely because he is an agitator... That's perfect for the 4th line, we're not expecting goals from that offensive black hole anyway

Its not about not providing offense. Its an inability to provide anything at all other than occasionally throwing a punch.

He cant play defense, he cant play in the neutral zone, he can barely pass the puck or stick handle.

He should fight at least once per shift he has. Maybe more. He can serve 3 fighting majors per period easy.

This is more window dressing. The bottom 3 option are all redundant. None of the options excel at any one part of the game. The larger issues remain.

It's about time I'd say. Asham isn't a liability. He can actually chip in here and there. I approve this move.

Super stoked to watch a forced, awkward fight every time we're down a goal now!

Last game Asham played in the bigs we lost 6-0 and he got nailed with an unsportsmanlike penalty for removing his helmet in a fight.

Can't wait to see if he's figured out the rules yet.

I approve and Asham should stick with the bigs. Trade away the three P's: Powe, Pyatt and Pouliot.

What makes you think any of the three have any value at all to anyone?

eh, they will all be gone in the offseason. Best they could do in the meantime is bury them in the ahl, but even then they would be taking minutes from the kids

why would any team want to make that trade?

3 useless players for a draft pick plus having to pay their salary?

teams that sell when so many teams are in it, can extricate a fortune at the deadline.

if this team doesnt suddenly become a juggernaut, i'm looking to offload some pieces and start somewhat a-new.

build around Stepan, Kreider, and Nash.

isnt it a game misconduct and a suspension for 3 fights in a game?

Does Asham have anything left? The Rangers are grasping at straws. This franchise is a joke. Tortorella had no use for Asham. Vigneault waived him in the second/third week of the season along with Biron. Asham is now back. He was hurt twice in the AHL.

Brooks is crying about Prust leaving for Montreal

Quote:
In other words, everything the Rangers’ fourth line hasn’t been all year, even if the sidelined Derek Dorsett has tried to personify all of that with every fiber of his being. Arron Asham will attempt to add some weight after being recalled from the AHL on Monday as J.T. Miller was returned to the Wolf Pack after only two games back in New York.

Brian Boyle’s game has deteriorated to an extent that is difficult to watch. Benoit Pouliot has been a mistake machine. Taylor Pyatt has issues keeping up with the play. Dominic Moore has tried, but hasn’t been able to ignite a spark anywhere along the line.

And the Rangers as a team get outworked and pushed around, and not only by Boston. Seriously, when Michael Ryder and Reid Boucher both take shots at Marc Staal without fear of reprisal, there is something amiss and what’s amissing is in a Canadiens sweater.
http://nypost.com/2013/12/09/rangers...-prust-bolted/

When Celine Dion concussed Sauer two years ago. Did Prust go after him? In this league,players go after players for clean hits. Look at what happened to Orpik. Neil concussed Prusty's boy Boyle. Neil wasn't afraid of Prust doing anything to him.

Dorsett is another flyweight. Lucic could beat up Dorsett and Asham with one hand tied behind his back.

Boyle is terrible. Nice guy. Great teammate. He needs a change of scenery too.
