    They do understand that they only need 1 4th line, right?

    Yeah, next year when both teams are going nowhere.

    Those guys will be long a part of the WWE or nursing their heads, by the time the Isle's kids have them competing. You know who's scary though? Matt Barzal.

    I mean, given the volume of fists they've brought in, the Rangers are never going to go pound-for-pound with them, but there's still a summer ahead to add some muscle.

    I said add some muscle, not pretend whatever you have in house will suffice. Hartnell is still a free agent. So are Winnik and Bieksa.

    On a related note, who gives a shit if they get out punched by a team that's loaded up with players renowned for the least relevant aspect of hockey?

    Itís a matter of NY pride, Phillip. No one here wants to lose to the piles.

    Pride. Right. The two teams who are going to be racing one another to the bottom of the standings have much to be proud of.

    In all seriousness, though, I get it. I don't want to watch our guys get run up and down the ice (they will be) or smacked around either. But I also don't like losing, and I'm accepting that, too, on an interim basis.

    Because they’re still vulnerable kids in which we have investmented

    Just because you’re paid, doesn’t mean you can’t be nervous going into the corner.

    I'm aware. I wrote an entire article on it. But you're conflating tough on ice play and pugilism.
