Works out perfectly. The Rangers may have the toughest organization out of any team in hockey.... they are loaded with fighters on the Rangers and on the Wolf Pack. I love seeing organizations like this.... they will have very exciting games that are full of fights in both leagues. Two very, very tough teams. Great to see!
Believe me as a fan I am loving it. It was awful sitting through the Muckler years when they had a certain Great One playing and the old man would claim "team toughness" and then either scratch or just not play Darren Langdon
, who was the only tough guy on the team besides an aging Adam Graves
It is nice to know too that if Orr happened to get hurt they do have other guys that could be called up to fill the roll.
