Glass will be a fine fit for us. Some of you guys are unbelievable. He's a middle weight enforcer who can skate, kill penalties and also fight heavyweights. Anymore goon than him and you get into the Mcgrattan or Sestito territory aka guys who are too unskilled to play in AV's system. If you aren't convinced about his fighting prowess refer to these fights:

Agree - the last thing you want is the Flyers going into game 7 riding an easy 4-0 win.

Your assessment might be the most inaccurate thing I've read in this blog in a while. Diaz for Klein ? Go to sleep.

No, you are right. We have a solid group already and adding those pieces would take us to the next level

I agree. Carcillo is not the best player in the world but I must admit since coming here he has been disciplined and playing a more "complete" game instead of just skating around like a goon.
Carbomb should get the nod over JT. Throw D Moore on the 3rd line and 4th line of Dorsett-Boyle-Carbomb

Weird... In a game that means nothing statistically to the Rangers, they stick up for each other more than I've ever seen this season

@mando24179 I agree I would scratch Hags before Carbomb. Its sad though because even when Carcillo is in the lineup and a cheap shot gets laid on one of our players, AV doesn’t let him or Dorsett settle the score. Its pointless to have tough guys in your lineup if you won’t allow to protect their teammates. Teams have caught on to this.
@Josh-CK I agree 100% with your observation that you don’t have to necessarily play the Bruins model of hockey to win a Stanley Cup. I also agree that a team like the Blackhawks is not overly physical yet still beat Boston and won the Stanley Cup. Just wanted to touch on one point - Our team is not yet near a Blackhawks caliber team (Yes, I know we beat them this year).
What always gets overlooked with the Blackhawks is that they actually have a decent amount of tough guys and at least 3 legit heavyweights in their lineup in Bollig, Bickell and Brookbank. This always gets overlooked. I know it gets tiring to hear “WE NEED MORE TOUGHNESS” but even teams like the Blackhawks who most consider to not be a tough, physical team have the personnel to play that game if need be. The Rangers DON’T.
Dale Weise was the closet thing they had and he might be one of the worst enforcers in the league
Exactly but AV never sends out Carbomb or Dorsett to respond.
I agree that Dorsett and Carcillo are not heavyweights by any means but to be fair every time this season that someone has layed a borderline hit or cheap shot on one of our players, it's never been when they are on the ice. Just happens to be that way. I blame AV because he has the opportunity everytime next shift to throw Dorsett and Carbomb on the ice to send a message and doesn't.
Bickel is a big boy at 6'4... I know he has been a healthy scratch a few times this year in Hartford but I would like to know more about his recent play too.
@Picaz77 Trust me, Carcillo wants nothing to do with Gazdic. Only way he fights him is if they are on the ice at the same time and Gazdic lays a dirty hit. However I can see Carcillo or Dorsett vs Hendricks- That is much more likely to happen tonight.
Lol Dalton Prout dropped his gloves, grabbed Girardi and threw him on his ass... embarrassing
This pressure we've been applying in their zone is great...it just needs to translate into goals !

Lol i feel you

Our skill will only get us so far. We need grit. We need energy guys who will take it upon themselves to change a game. I literally have not seen one Ranger all season long get into a fight to swing momentum. Guys like Prust, Rupper, Dubi and Bickel would do this all the time. We are missing this element from our team badly. I honestly think AV tells Carcillo "please whatever you do, don't fight".

Stepan sounds like Stevie from Eastbound and Down
Seriously Carbomb with and without the visor are two different players
1 year, 1 month ago on Carcillo Re-Inserted in Lineup; Possible Line Shuffle
Getting tired of boyle lately. Dorsett for Boyle.
There is NO WAY Derek Stepan gets an A next year. Also you can't have 3 alternate captains if you have a captain.

What's worse is during the post game interview AV said props to Mcilrath but fighting is overrated and doesn't really effect the game. No wonder our team doesn't fight, AV tells them not too

Last fight was Mcilrath vs mcgrattan... Over 2 months ago
Send Carbomb after Abdelkader
They need to show some fight both literally and figuratively
1 year, 1 month ago on Rangers @ Hurricanes (Game 64)
This team needs a good scrap to wake them up... Three game loosing streak- they need to show some character
Can somebody show some character ?!?!
Dorsett, Carbomb pick a fight and get this team going !!!
1 year, 1 month ago on Rangers vs. Maple Leafs (Game 63) - Martin St. Louis in the Building
McD deserves to be alternate captain at least, but you can only have 3 (if you don't currently have a captain) so I can't see him getting an "A" over Girardi considering for the past 3 seasons he's the "backup" alt captain.
1 year, 1 month ago on Rangers Trade Callahan, Picks to Tampa for St. Louis
Diaz was a healthy scratch for most of the year with the Habs. Unless there is an injury to one of our defenseman, he won't be playing. Just a pickup for insurance On the back end
For the rest of the season we will most likely have 3 alternate captains (Staal, Richie, G) and in the offseason they will name a new captain - probably Staal.
I hate seeing our team get bullied around...Sathers gotta do something

Kreider WTF ????
1 year, 1 month ago on Rangers @ Flyers (Game 61)
The Flyers have an attitude today that they are gonna bitch us around...Someone needs to drop the mitts and send a message
Nice D from your boy Kreider
Only reason i suggest Glass is cause Engelland would rip Carcillo to pieces lol
1 year, 2 months ago on Rangers @ Penguins (Game 59)
I agree. Too bad AV is our coach so this would never happen
I would say for the most part Klein has been very dependable and solid. Definitely an upgrade from the erratic and underwhelming showings by Del Zotto.

Next shift Carcillo and Hendricks are on the ice - Carcbomb should mix it up with him

Just not with Gazdic...he would rip Carcillo to pieces
