@PenaltySh0t Prust is a much tougher fighter than Dorsett.
Despite Dorsett's willingness this team needs to get a bit tougher. Been Saying that for 6 months... Sather has to do something here.

@McIlrath That would change things a bit for the better. Watch how more effect the first three lines are. the 4th liners dont play that much anyway so why not at least let them have a role. Pyatt and Pouliot are not 4th line players. Pyatt is likely a 3rd line checker and we dont know what Pouliot is.

@NYR44 So the Rangers will just let Boston push them around a bit. What is it with these moves? 20 Games in and the fans get it but management does not. Mashinter should get a chance. Pouliot has had 1/4 of a season and has done nothing. and now we know why Blue Jackets traded Brassard. Our fourth line should be set up to change flow, provide energy, etc and yet we have basically 3rd liners that cannot score comprising the 4th line.
Also teams are starting to target Kreider. They know he is being very effective and they will start to slow him down or take him off the ice. What is it going to take to protect the guys? More Concussions?
I think you are correct. Having said that i still rather see Ike in the system one more time as opposed to Duda. I understand that watching him on opening day go 0-3 and 2K's will be miserable..but get him a tutor/mentor or whatever is required to get his head straight. I can see him blasting 30 for an AL team next year (albeit with 160 K's).
3 weeks, 6 days ago on The Blame Game, Starring: Ike Davis
Sure is a collective sigh of relief. Was thinking that somehow the Flyers were going to figure out a way to get Bickel or Mashinter. Still need some size and toughness on the home club as Their AHL team is plenty tough already
2 months, 1 week ago on Powe, Bickel & Mashinter Clear Waivers
@jslnyr1102 lets hope so... Sather has not done well with free agency nor has he drafted spectacularly... He has made some decent trades that enabled him to recover from his other bad moves. I do hope MciLrath produces and gets the chance.
4 months, 1 week ago on Stepan Signing Will Likely Leave Deserving Players Off Roster
@AG_Blue @hankthetank30 Respect your opinion but i dont think he is great along the boards. Hagelin does as much on the boards and then does something with the puck... He does a days work i guess
@josh930 @IcyCup @jasonshyer agree that he should be and do more, but that does not mean you get rid of him unless you get something decent back. The problem is that we dont get power forwards on this team too often. There are several other players on this team who do less..and MDZ is not one of them.
@RangersVW14 agree. lets see what this guy can really do.. He needs to stay and send down powe and pyatt
@Rangers3024 That seems to be he pattern. The coach just did not trust the tough players with any significant minutes so we keep losing the tougher players to free agency or trades. Now we may not need an "enforcer" these days but we do need some size/toughness combination.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Asham: Rangers Were Fed Up With Torts
@johnnyb3910 @KevinDeLury @cb1 I agree. We need a slightly large Asham as Dorsett is a different kind of player
@EHBIGAPPLE @Betweentheworlds i think incorrect, HR types are not in the business of downsizing themselves in the corporate world. They are responsible for downsizing everyone else.
Not enough size drafted at the forward position as usual..
5 months, 1 week ago on Draft Summary Part One: Rangers Go All-Out On Forwards In Third Round
@Richard Falconer Agree.. enough already. Many teams have dmen on their team with less than three years in the minors.. Either play him or admit another draft mistake.
5 months, 1 week ago on Why Dylan McIlrath's Time is Now
MDZ deserves better than what is written about him. He gets no protection gets hit often and still keeps going. I would say that if he played in Boston he would flourish. Lets give this guy a break especially since we have 2 star dmen down in Sauer and Staal.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Could Del Zotto Be Traded This Weekend?
@KevinDeLury @Josh6 Strange that they say separated when i guess they mean dislocating. I did this 13 times over 20 years until surgery..no idea how they played with it. THe fact that they did it so many times in one year suggests that unfortunately they should not have been playing
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Nash Had Concussion; Callahan, Hagelin Multiple Seperated Shoulders
@Skunkman yes you do
Why must the Rangers overpay for everything. Really, the new head coach had to get the rumored 5 years? and Richards had to get a contract that extends until his social security kicks in? These guys would not come for a little less? This is why ticket prices never move downward. Having said that, Messier should be in the front office and take Sather's spot as soon as feasible.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on So What Happens to Messier?
@JustinRP37 Maybe they wont win next year but we fired a solid coach in the early nineties and hired Keenan and won. I know we had some great players then..but just saying that there is precedent in losing the coach and then winning the next year. Also Sather will have his hands full in buying out and then replacing Richards...
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Players Are Reason For Torts Firing; Richards Healthy Scratch An Organizational Decision
@Hotfreak @mdspwt I agree with you. WIth a better offensive system Hagelin will do better. For a small guy he does come away with the puck more often than most. I am not a big Zuc fan and forget about Powe. Richards will be an interesting story. And the crap that the Rangers endure from Lucic and Orpik and Neil cannot happen. I still think that The coach held back the tougher players in the playoffs and that hurt them, especially last year when Neil ran wild. And What good are tough players if they dont play? Neil plays, all the Boston tough guys play and our guys sit or get traded or let go.. I hope that Sather is thinking in this direction. I think JT was a solid coach but a change was needed.
