Colton Orr like players effect would be minimal.

Prust, Kyle Clifford, Shawn Thornton. Now those players would be amazing and something we haven't been able to develop.

Thinks Colton Orr would improve the Rangers, tells other people they live in the land of make believe in the same post.

This might be a new level of hilariously ironic.

Sample size must be too small. Or you are cherry picking stats, what else could be the reason?

I'd like tough guys in the lineup, but not idiots. I don't want to see this kind of behavior.

Thornton has to travel to Toronto on Friday to face the safety board, he will probably be told that he's done in the NHL.

Half of the kids I live with here are Bruins fans. They were talking about it last night, they think 10 games since Thornton is a first time offender.

Personally I think he's in the 15-20 range. But wouldn't be surprised if this entirely subjective method way of disciplining players gets him like 6 games.

I imagine the speech went like this:

"Guys we are better than this. This isn't the fun part of hockey. We have to be more consistent.

Alright first 4 rounds are on Richie tonight, bottle service for the night is on Hank."

Toughness would be nice. Not asking specifically for fist-throwers. Just guys that have heart, pride, and testicular fortitude. That being said, what you really should be looking for is elite talent that also has the strongest work ethic on the team. I think that's the cornerstone of a championship team. Lundqvist has very strong work ethic, but the jury is still out on how many years he's got left in the tank at an elite level. I wouldn't call Nash elite, but nevertheless he has a tendency to disappear for stretches. Richards, not elite. McDonagh, borderline elite but he can't do it himself; not in a league that thrives on offense.

Yeah, but if you can make marginally witty quips, you are the voice of the board on toughness.

I'm not really the biggest pro-fighting guy, but I've been noticing more of this lately and it's starting to bother me.
It seems like we're gaining a reputation as a team that you can **** with and not deal with any kind of retaliation. It's not even about protecting anyone physically. Just show some dignity.

Apparently it doesn't matter and is "just a coincidence." Nothing brings a team together quite like routinely being embarrassed. About the only Rangers who seemed to know it was a rivalry game last night were Boyle and Dorsett and that's pathetic.

Don't worry soon the Rangers will be the Detroit Red Wings so they will be able to out possess every team in the league. Just need a few smart trades/signings by Sather to have a Pouliot-Pouliot-Pouliot 3rd line.

I've been watching the Rangers for 30 years and this team right now is arguably the softest of all those years. I almost feel bad for them like a kid being picked on! It's cringeworthy.

Prust would have been overpaid by 500k....500k...for a team that has burned millions upon millions upon millions...it was the one time Sather has decided to be cheap and people applauded him for it.

Sather said he would win cup after cup with Rangers bank roll and no one ever has called him out...amazing and baffling all rolled into one.

I can't watch anymore....Hank is sure earning that 8.5...amazing how other goalies who have won cups make 7 but he deserves 8.5...another brilliant move
Were those teams with the 7 million dollar goalie mediocre like ours?

I agree. He probably told everyone on the bench what he was going to do too. Our team is not worth complaining about
