Try again/ Marsh was a very good D-Man for a long time. He might have been a poor player at the end of his career but he wasn't during the bulk of it.

It's easy to find flash in the pans, but here's some guys I never really dug nonetheless:

Colin Forbes
He played on the Sens for a year almost every game as a 4th liner. He didn't score, wasn't good defensively, wasn't physical, seemed not to play with a ton of effort. But each game he got his 4-5 minutes.

He is a good choice for the worst regular NHL I have seen - at least he was in Ottawa.

Haha, nyr2k2, as I was reading through this thread my little girl went past the computer, looked over my shoulder and asked me if the guy on the left in your avatar was "Chuck the Duck." I guess having him in Ranger blue is going to take some getting used to....

That Witehall guy turned out to be a mediocre player in the german hockey league a few years ago. I think he sucked on my hometown team for half a year or so.

For the Topic: I would go with Dale Purinton also.

Looks like alot of people are just hating on guys who played the twilight of their careers in their own city.






Atleast I pointed out that I was speaking about big busts on broadway when I spoke of Kamensky. And not for nothing- to call the guy well above averge doesn't exactly work. In his best years he was a 60 point guy and he's basically remembered for one 30+ goal season he had the year the Avs won their first cup.

Just a dude who showed up and went through the motions without doing much of anything, but fooled enough people that he got to play. If you want, we can have worst Ranger/Non Ranger, but you have to provide statistical evidence towards your case, it can't just be your least favorite player.

Worst RANGER of all time is Kamensky in a landslide as many past polls here will support. Hard to group him with the real trash of the NHL though when you consider his pre-Ranger career.
Hooray.. I cant believe Marchment isnt getting more votes... the guy's like Matt Johnson and Jarko Ruutu combined.

It will definitely take some getting used to, though I can't wait for a pic of him in our sweater. It makes me nervous having bits of a Devils sweater in my avy.

I gotta reply to this thread...I can't mention anybody who were horrid for the Rangers but otherwise had good careers (Stevens, Kamensky, Keane, Driver, etc.). I can't mention guys that were known as only goons because frankly that is all they were expected to provide so they were not useless and they served a role. I can't mention guys that just had a cup of coffee like the Ferraro's because they never were really NHL players to begin with.

Marchment is a great place to start because except for injuring the other teams best stars leading to his team getting the upper hand he never really did much of anything else during his career that I remember as noteworthy....but:

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Alexander Karpovtsev! I disliked him every year on the Rangers. He was soft, added little offense for the most part, not great on defense, and if it wasn't for Messier's game six heroics, I'd always be remembering him for giving the Devils a goal to seal game five. I mean they replaced him with Doug Lidster for the rest of the playoffs and instantly became a better team. He was also horrid pretty much for all the other teams he played for too yet still had just under 600 NHL games played.

Yeah, want to hear what some Blackhawk announcers thought of him?

Forgot about Brent Fedyk. The bitter side of me will always blame him for being on that team and Cherneski being sent to the minors.

Interesting seeing Bryan Marchment on there, he was a cheap SOB but he wasn't a bad regular. His cheap stuff often took away from the fact that he was a pretty good defenseman for a while. Solid body checker, stay at home type, made people think twice.

Interesting seeing Matt Johnson out there. His career was a disappointment. When he was drafted he was seen as the heir apparent to Bob Probert. A big kid who pop in some points and could possibly be the top enforcer in the league someday. Shows you how what looks like a good draft can go down as a bad one. 12 years ago it looked like a nice draft for the kings with Storr, Johnson and Yachmenev.

I've got to throw Joe Sacco in there. I was looking at his stats the other day with an Islander fan friend of mine. In 1998-99 with Isles he scored three goals and no assists in 73 games. No assists in 73 games! In 2001-02 with the Caps he scored no goals and seven assists in 65 games. We're talking about a non-fighting winger here. He wasn't really an energy type guy either. Granted, he had 4 straight seasons with double digit goals for the Ducks, but those have to be two of the most worthless seasons anyone has ever had. Here's his career stats.

I don't think too many guys with less talent than Dale Purinton have ever played as many games as he did in the NHL.

I think Hollweg has to add some offense or he's going to be looked upon that way right now. He can check, that's really about it right now.

He's not a shooter, he's not a passer really and he's not an exceptionally good fighter.

As long as he sticks with a franchise that has a fan base that respects his gritty style, I think he'll be fine. I agree that he needs to add offense, but even as is, most people around here love him.
