    Say what you want about McLeod, but any player who is willing to drop the gloves to give himself a career gets respect in my book, especially a guy whose done it for 12 seasons.

    Same here. But he wasn't an effective hockey player, so I'm glad they've moved on.

    For sure, just that the hate he got seemed way too harsh for a guy who doesn't deserve the hate.

    He had a much better second half with the Rangers than he did the first. Much of the hate he got was as a direct result of watching Staal and Vesey get concussed in that Nashville game in which he did nothing about it.

    He WAS effective in the role that he filled; whether in NY or Nashville. People are quick to knock a player that doesn't meet their expectations. I for one am glad that I got to see him in NYR blue. Good luck Cody and enjoy your trip to the playoffs.

    I don't think anybody hates him, he's just bad.

    A lot of criticism or whatever towards him was also a response to the fact that he'd be in the playoff lineup over Buch, too.

    769 nhl games played. There is a lot of “good” players wishing they had that longevity. A top contending team wants him. He is not an unknown to them either. McLeod plays a role and for some reason teams think he’s not the worthless trash that fans deem him to be.

    Definitely pick a goalie from Sweden with that 7th Round pick...

    Exactly.

    In 56 games with the Rangers, he was on the ice for a total of 6 goals for and 27 against. -21 is one thing. Being on ice for goals against at a factor for 4.5 to 1 over goals for is another and quite a remarkable stat. A guy can have character, and a guy can be willing to fight (except in the often referenced incident when it was needed the most), but he's got to be able to play in this league these days.

    apparently Nashville was happy to get him back and were upset when he got picked up off waivers. signing him and Boyle gives them some toughness going into the playoffs.
