This Week in Rangers Hockey (Ranger-O-Meter Edition)

Overpaid-Completely-Sucking-O-Meter

Glen Sather: He put this mess together, and mysteriously seems to have his job for life. It looks like he’d have to kill somebody to get fired.

Wade Redden: A disaster. He’s -10 for the year, and only five more seasons to go.

Scott Gomez: -11, 1 power play goal

Chris Drury: What leadership? -10

Michal Rozsival: -13

Tom Renney: The players are mostly to blame, but Renney keeps putting the same players on the power play and does nothing to motivate this bunch of deadbeats. Unfortunately, you can’t fire all the players, so it’s time for a new coach.

Dmitri Kalinin: Another free agent blunder by Sather. -9

 

The-Few-Guys-Actually-Doing-Their-Jobs-O-Meter

Henrik Lundqvist: Single-handedly won a number of games. The Rangers would be out of the playoff picture without him (and may soon be out of it with him).

Marc Staal: The team’s best player besides Lundqvist.

Blair Betts: Second best PK in the league, and he’s a big reason why.

Ryan Callahan: 13 goals and always finishes his checks.

Paul Mara: -2, which for this defense is second best to Staal.

 

Bag-O’-Knuckles-O-Meter (8th in NHL, 44 majors)

Colton Orr: 12

Aaron Voros: 8

Brandon Dubinsky: 6

Paul Mara: 5

Ryan Callahan: 3

Dan Girardi: 2

Erik Reitz: 2 

Marc Staal: 2

Nigel Dawes: 1

Petr Prucha: 1

Wade Redden: 1

Nikolai Zherdev: 1
