Most skilled enforcer?

Who do you feel was the most offensively skilled Rangers enforcer?

My vote goes to Sandy McCarthy(still looking for that Mr.Sandman video...help!)

That is depressing...

I liked McCarthy though. I think a better question is who is the best enforcer to play in the NHL over the past 20 years? Maybe Probert?

Simon was pretty good in his season with us. Domi became a pretty good player after he left the Rangers. I always thought Joe Kocur was a pretty good player. The Rangers used him more sparingly than some other teams but he could play. Fotiu was a good player too. For me it would be between Kocur and Fotiu.

barnaby also had some decent points while here, but not a true heavyweight obviously.

I thought of Barnaby too and he had a lot of guts but he wasn't really an enforcer even if he would fight anybody. Hated him before he came here but loved him as a Ranger.

Sandy McCarthy... One of my few remaining memories from the late 90's was him pulling off a nasty move with the puck on his stick and our announcers just laughing about it in disbelief....

Hated McCarthy. He just stared. Simon was a legit guy on both fronts. Would have to agree on him.

I also remember Jeff Beukeboom steaming out of the penalty box on a breakaway and undressing Ron Hextall. Man I'd love to see a video clip of that again (hint, hint, Youtubers).

Just to add some variety, Joey Kocur had a pretty decent wrist-shot, if I recall correctly.

Correct answer: Troy Mallette http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=3350

vs. Joe Kocur http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=2767

vs. Sandy McCarthy http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=3513

vs. Chris Simon http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...pid%5B%5D=4962

vs. Chris Nilan http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=3975

vs. Nick Fotiu http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=1753

vs. Tie Domi
http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=1391

Mallette was not here long, but he was arguably the most skilled player to fill the "enforcer" role. He drastically outscored nearly all these other guys and fought his way to two of the highest PIM seasons in club history, including the record of 305 unfortunately for him, his game fell completely apart when we sent him to Edmonton for Adam Graves as compensation for signing Graves as a RFA. But that was not the OP Question. Mallete's two seasons as Ranger's resident tough guy were the best in my time watching the Rangers.

I remember that play.... He roofed it on the back-hand right? I was probably only 11 or 12 when I saw that game....

I sat next to Malette on a flight once before the teams chartered and I couldn't believe what a nice guy he was. Met him again later and same thing. Would never have pegged him as an enforcer. Heard from another player he was devastated to leave New York and I guess his career suffered from that point forward.

Prust struck me as an enforcer who could probably be a good two-way forward who fights. Some of his passes are really impressive. He has good vision, which is a surprising trait for an enforcer. His shot isn't great, and his stickhandling is weak, but I think with his speed and vision he could probably have a pretty wicked season this year if he's given the right guidance.

As far as already proven, I gotta go with Chris Simon, he had ability on offense when he wasn't holding his skate blade to people's necks.

All time Rangers has to be Domi hands down.

Right now in the NHL.....as much as I hate him Carcillo can be good and score big goals and he's one dirty SOB.

So was it Domi's one goal season, or his breakout season with two goals that tipped the scales in his favor? MOST OFFENSIVELY SKILLED RANGERS ENFORCER was the question. And Carcillo is no more of an enforcer than Avery. He's an agitator more than an enforcer. Unless you're Gaborik. Then he's pretty much an enforcer.

Barnaby was a pest not enforcer but a darn good one.
I would have to say Nick Fotiu the guy could fly and had the best wrist shot on the team and was feared.

Kris King was really solid and killed penalties when he was here.
Simon was very solid
and props to whoever mentioned Troy Mallette the kid was 19 and went with all the top guys and was just a young pup.
