NYRangers Pound 4 Pound: Derek Boogaard!

I went through the hockeyfights.com archives and found some of Derek Boogaard's best fights.  Since it seems that is all the 6'8 monster can do anyway.  With him scoring no goals the last four seasons.  But I guess that's why he only received a 4 year deal worth over $1.6M a season.  He is only 28 so maybe he will learn how to skate while with the Rangers but that discussion is for another time.  As long as he fights like he does in some of the videos I will post then I think most Rangers fans won't be thinking about his contract...

  2. Pretty good fighter with a crazy contract. I like him for half the price. But we got him so hopefully he kills Carcillo and others.

  4. Yeah he is definitely not an old bag like Brashear so he should win his fights and scare his opponents but the contract is sad. If the Oilers really offered 4yr/$7M then let him go.

  5. hes a good fighter but hasnt scored in 4 years? Shelley scored plenty for us in the fighter role!

  6. I think we have to wait and see what he does. No1 expected Shelley to play that well and he did although he was not getting paid 1.6 million a year but I think we need to wait and see!

  10. Boll is a good fighter and like you said he schooled him. Probably just too big for Boll to handle.

  11. Yeah the plan is 2 do 1 for Prust and Avery also. Maybe Cally if he has enoguh fights in his catalogue. Alos maybe some retired Rangers like Barnaby, Domi and others...

    Great I can't wait to see those as well. Great idea 2 do this as like a series with Prust and Avery and doing retired players would be great also.
