That said he was great today. The amount of people that were "too classy" for him was ridiculous. As long as a guy isn't dirty like Cooke, I'd welcome anyone that's a good player on this team. I don't recall Carcillo being Matt Cooke or something.

Why exactly would you be in favor of Fast playing over Carcillo who has been great since becoming a Ranger. His track record can't be denied, we're a better team with him in it.

Because Carcillo is a 4th liner and Fast has more scoring potential while being very solid defensively.

agreed.

Carcillo did impact the game though..which Sean Avery used to do a lot. He got guys thinking about him instead of the other guys...sometimes its important to have a troll on your team.

Yet to score a goal and is a -5 on the season compared to Carcillo's even +/- and 3 goals.

I just don't see Fast's potential.

Carcillo has generated more than Fast this season and has that extra string to his bow that this team lacks. Fast's time will come but I don't think this team's record with Carcillo is a coincidence.

-5 is very deceptive considering how he's played a high percentage of his games (about half) when the team was really struggling. He had more than half of those minuses in one 6-0 loss when the entire team was terrible (-3). Carcillo came when the team became a good team. Carcillo has played around 20 more games with the Rangers to get the 3 goals. You're using completely deceptive stats and I can't figure out if it's just a strategy to prove a point hoping I don't call you on it, or if you don't realize how deceptive they are.

I hope he gets resigned, because I want him on my jersey.

I can't tell if your obsession with Carcillo is serious or not .

Well he won us the stadium series and since then I'm not sure he's been getting the credit he deserves, last night showed why he can't be overlooked as a team motivator.

Fast

Fast - I'm not getting all this talk about his "potential." What potential? To be a scorer? No. To be a 1st line player? No.

What is all this fuss over Fast? Seriously he is just an ok prospect. His upside is probably a good 3rd liner who at his best gets you 20-30 points and plays good D.

In a very physical series I'll take Carcillo over that unreached potential any day!

MOD - We don't need a three-month bump for this thread to ask whether this was a good deal for the Rangers in hindsight. Thanks.
