This.

And anyone that thinks Shelley can't throw with the best of them is just an HF/Hockeyfights blowhard. The guy won't back down from anyone, and does more than hold his own. He WILL make your team instantly tougher.

I have mixed feelings about letting him go, but guys like him know their role and live up to it. Don't expect much offense, but he's actually improved on skating and developed more instinct this season. He just rang a shot off the cross bar last night in a tight game.

Former-Shark, now radio commentator, Jamie Baker on the trade.

Note the disappointment in his voice. Most Rangers fans will love the big guy.

Sharks fan coming in peace.

When Shelley came to the Sharks the whole team started playing like they were 2 inches taller. He is obviously well liked by the whole team. He works tremendously hard by all accounts. He is great in the community, I am pretty sure once he is done playing he has a job in Columbus lined up. He will finish all of his checks and won't back down from anyone. I hope he does well for you guys.

Seems like Shelley's doing exactly what an enforcer/grinder is supposed to do, unlike what Brashear did...

I live in Columbus. A few years ago my beloved Rangers came to town and I went to the game for my birthday. I remember we lost and I remember Shelley scored one of Columbus' goals. Anyway, I love seeing that we got him. I'm sure we'll all like him soon enough.

great move

Only glen sather could rationalize a **** deal such as this. theres literally not one reason to justify this deal. how about getting a defenseman considering MDZ got shanked last night and redden rosy and gilroy are all jokes. team should be renamed the new york lundqvists because hes the only reason they are close to playoff contention.

im just happy the rangers now have a guy that will jump in when DRURY and GABORIK get into fights rather than our bunch of ******* that stood by and watched. Watch out carcillo and hartnell. *******.

do you really think shelley or any other player is going to be a detriment and make the other team think twice abotu running a "star" player? Those days are long over sadly. Players could care less who is on the other team. Carcillo wont change his game one bit. It would be funny though if brashear gets his relase he signs with the flyers for the last few games at the end of the year.

thought a bit more about the move...my final thoughts are that it's too little too late. Fine having a guy like this, and I thought the Rangers did in Orr last season, so it's too bad the Rangers need to trade for a 34 year old and waive a recently signed guy. Can't get over the joke of a GM this team has and how he constantly moves pieces around to get nowhere. What I will say is that I don't agree with many against the trade because I think they don't agree because some people can't deal with small moves. If it's not Kovalchuk coming to NYC or Redden leaving NYC, some really don't want to see it. In most circumstances, if you block everything out, its not a bad move. The question is will Torts even dress a guy like Shelley and we he tolerate penalties? Hasn't that really been the issue with Torts? Are the coach and GM on the same page?

Disagree, Fletch. This isn't simply "a small move" - or at least that's what we're worried about. This reeks of a GM who thinks his team is going to make the POs. The reason that I and others are so against it, is that he should be racking up draft picks at the expense of veteran players as opposed to the other way around.

You think you need more toughness - I agree! Deal Prospal for a 1st, or at least a 2nd, and call up Byers or even Soryal to take his place. Let the young guys play out the season and get the benefit of the experience. But don't spend assets that can contribute to the future in exchange for 20 game, 34 year old rentals that clearly have no benefit other than this year.

Can definitely get a first for Prospal. Even a pick 10-17 they can get. Trade him to a border line playoff or team that thinks they can make it ala Detroit Dallas Anaheim.


But this won't happen....

With all the other garbage we've had to put up with this year, I am tired of seeing Rangers getting the crap beat out of them in fight after fight. Have we won a single fight all year?

Brandon Prust is a willing lightweight and though he will, he can't realistically take on the big boys.

A 6th round pick is no great loss.

Next time we play the Flyers and with Shelley and Prust in the lineup, guaranteed nobody will be taking liberties with Gaborik.

Like I said, getting rid of fighting forever would make me happy but until then, we need a guy who can fight.


It is simply part of the game. Clean fights still are great momentum changes and a great tactic for picking up your teams play. There is no reason to eliminate fighting.

Okay, no sense having two Shelley threads any longer. Please use the other thread from now on.
