    I didn't hear the report, but wasn't it said that it was Smith himself that told Maloney? I asked above if anyone knows if he's been practicing every day, do we know that? If he is, I'd say a major injury, medical issue, or whatever else would be suspect. No?

    Yea he said that he was out of shape and yes he's been practicing as the 7D. So no, in this case it's likely that there's no injury.

    Perhaps there is a hidden clause in the CBA that states the Rangers must have at least 10 mill in AAV tied up in useless Defense per season?

    I think it's time....

    No one decked anyone in front of Hank in that Chicago game. Anisimov looked like the image of Wayne Gretzky last night.
    I think it's time to go to the bullpen and get our man back in there. The point has been made!

    ...if no response from him this time, THEN it's off to Siberia!

    What do you guys think? I've kinda seen enough of players left standing in front of Hank, banging at every rebound without anyone knocking them down or paying the price!

    It's a nicer, gentler game nowadays. Has been evolving for several years. The day of yore are, well, the days of yore.

    Watching that game I kept thinking crosscheck a motherf***er, push somebody, tie up their stick at least.

    Last night v. CHI we lacked the ‘grit and sandpaper’ Smith brings. The NHL game has gone from goon to skill with little in between. A good body check would straighten things out every once in a while. Who throws body checks on NYR with any regularity? Think about that for a minute. Smith may not bang on every shift but he certainly brings a physical game and one that’s quite lacking on this squad.

    That wasn't the Smith that showed up this season. Could really use that.

    I assume that he’s recovered from his injury now.

    Tonight is the night of the unveiling of the new improved Brendan Smith. He's tanned, rested and ready. In all seriousness, I hope he doesn't make a lot of mistakes and run out of position from trying to hard.

    I thought the Rangers would've waited for a loss to bring him back. Lets hope he's ready to roll.

    They did lose. Got smoked by Chicago. Good time to change it up.

    Every athlete who's career ended early due to concussions disagrees with your facts.

    Just because a career ends early, doesn't necessarily mean that the injury hasn't healed.

    Sounds like someone's brain hasn't healed from his last concussion...

    Do you know anyone with a TBI? They are never the same. And the research done on CTE illustrates pretty clearly that repeated brain trauma does not heal.

    How did Smith look after his “injury”?
