It's almost as if he wanted to take that beating last night. Obvious from the start he was in over his head--and as the fight went on that he was gassed. I think the linesmen were ready to jump in and save him a couple times but then he'd throw one or two weak little jabs and Janssens would pummel him some more.
He just doesn't come across as a bad fighter--he comes across as dumb.
Voros was waayyy overmatched by Janssen. I was hoping Orr would pound on Janssen after that but oh well. Voros is the new Hollweg minus the boarding calls.
depends what you mean by overmatched. In theory, Voros should have been able to beat Cam being the bigger guy. But Cam is as tough as they come, and probably the toughest considering his size.
Interesting to compare Voros and Hollweg. I always thought, and still think, that Voros has some skill. My dad used to point out that Hollweg was actually a quick skater. So maybe in the end, they have similar offensive ceilings?
I think Voros needs to play his big man's game better. He needs to watch some Holmstrom videos, and learn how to annoy the goalie without getting penalties.
Voros is a pitiful excuse for a hockey player. He was brought in to fill Avery's role and the only thing he has done remotely close to that is wear a uniform and take up a locker. How this guy tricked somebody into paying him A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR to do what he does, is pure voodoo. Magic. F'ing Jedi Mind tricks, because this guy has rec league level skills and gets paid more money in a year than alot of people see in 20 years. You gotta bring something to the table. If you can't score, play good defense. If you can't skate, play well positionally. If you can't do any of it, makes sure you're the toughest SOB on the roster. Well, Voros does none of it. I had it with him last night. The other day during the flyers game, the announcers were going on and on about how it made no sense for Riley Cote to go with Orr because it could swing the momentum back to the Rangers. Well, Voros clearly doesnt understand that. Theres a time to go, and a time not to go. You don't go with the other teams toughest guy in a road game 2 seconds after your real tough guy just pounded the dog crap out of one of their guys. He nullified the whole thing. SO not only has he got no knuckle game, but he's an idiot on top of it. Way to go, punchy... way to take one for the team. Jackass.
I expect Voros, Dawes,Prucha, Kalinin to not be Rangers in a few weeks
they have to change the personnel and now..........if that means bringing up someone from Hartford or making a trade for the sake of making a trade like a Prucha for Arnason for example then just do it
He is possibly the WORST fighter I have ever seen...my god his punches have ZERO power behind them and he has no clue what he is doing, other then to get hit. Embarassing. My lord, Aaron, just give up the fighting aspect already and leave it to guys that can.
Aaron Voros. My, goodness, man, stay down. That was a frightful beating, and I thought that after Voros got tagged that he was obviously hurt or disoriented and I thought the linesmen should have stepped in at that point. He could have been seriously injured. But you have to give the guy at least a little credit for caring after being benched the game before.
That fight was inevitable last night...Voros could do nothing about it...
Once Orr wasted his time fighting some nobody, all you had to do was take one look at Janssens on the bench and you knew he was going to be put out there to avenge on the next shift...And he did...and Voros is the only other candidate we have.....He had to go with him althoug a big part of me would have loved to see Janssens standing there with his gloves off, bounding around like a monkey, while VOros skated away to make a play..
All that being said...Voros is nothing but a 4th liner/Black Ace that should be used here and there..Basically the same thing for guys like Orr, SJostrom and Prucha too..
At least Semin comes from a country where they don't allow fighting in their leagues, at least he's a skilled player who would be the Rangers best forward. At least he's not a guy who supposedly is good at playing the tough guy role. I always said it didn't matter if you won a fight, as long as you showed up. Voros has proven me wrong. It's better to have the other guy think you're a wuss for refusing to fight him, than to have him prove it by slapping you around like Ike Turner.
On a serious note, how did Voros make the NHL? I'm trying to figure out what he does well. He'll fight, but he's awful at it. He has literally zero balance. A decent shot I guess... Zero speed, no real hitting power although he's willing to hit.
