Additionally, I think the Rangers want a forward who can 'deal', McLeod became the only one, once Belesky went down.
    Fatty, I answered you question earlier (see above - Dunny take me off ignore). Dunny, Kevin, Rodrigue, among others, realize we do not have enough vet depth at forward to offer a good option. We also all agree that with Belesky hurt there are no gritty alternatives to McLeod at forward.

    That some do not like McLeod, even in his most appropriate role, just means that most of us would prefer a guy like Roussel or Shaw or Martin, who can at least make some hockey plays or PK. In a year or so, we can upgrade this area. For now, I'm glad we have some size and toughness on D with McQuaid, Smith and Claesson.

    I do wonder if Beleskey doesn't bump out McLeod when he's healed up.

    BTW, those saying mgmt made no moves to add toughness are ignoring our only two acquisitions. Only FA was Claesson, though we tried to get Reaves, Komorov, and others, but their contracts would not work for us. Those are "tough" guys. Our only trade was for McQuaid.

    It was a separation. I don't believe it required surgery to repair. I doubt his shoulder is jacked. If it is, though, you're right.

Regardless, Hartford is the best place for him right now.
    Only problem is.... He doesn't do the job. He has been here when players got run and did nothing. When he does fight, he gets his ass kicked. He's useless. He can't skate, can't fight, can't contribute in a hockey role. I'd rather carry a skill player or a special teams specialist. Why carry a tough guy that isn't even tough anymore?

    I'm not exactly sure how Andersson didn't earn his spot and Howden did... Both had pretty lame pre seasons.

    Shoulders are huge. You can feel it skating, shooting, hitting, etc. And any separation or similar injury brings you back to 0 in strength department.

    Curtis lazar on waivers. He’d seem like a better 13th forward option to me

    True, he does have size and will work to keep the crease clear. Komorov is pretty damn physical. Maybe he was less so last year, but he is slowing down. He can't catch people any more.
