In the Daily News, Pat Leonard writes about the Rangers new players who aren’t named Rick Nash.
He writes about how Arron Asham, Taylor Pyatt and Jeff Halpern will need to replace players like Ruslan Fedotenko, John Mitchell and Brandon Prust.
Brian Boyle praised the competitiveness of Jeff Halpern and said that these guys know their roles and add to the overall depth of the team, “these are guys who work and do whatever the team needs them to do. And that’s what you want.”
Halpern added that a guy like Taylor Pyatt is who every team needs since he is a big guy who can control the puck. Halpern added “those are the kind of guys you need.”
On his game, Pyatt said “I play that grinding style that can be effective in the playoffs and hopefully in a shortened season like this one.”
