Read: What Arron Asham Said Today

This is an Arron Asham jerseyArron Asham returns to the Rangers lineup tonight after spending the first part of the season in Hartford.

He spoke today (Rangers) and said “Everyone knows that I am 35 and the style of game that I play is slowly fading. I am just taking every opportunity I get and trying to make the most of it.”

Asham added:

  • “I will play my game, use my body and if I have to fight I will fight and I won’t change anything about my game. I am going to try and add some life to this team and get a couple of wins.”
  • On the energy he can bring, “There is no point in changing. I will play my game, try and get some life into the fans and try and get some life off of that and I will play my game. Everyone is a little up tight and nervous around here and I will try and relax things.”
  • On being back at MSG, “It will be good to come home and play in front of the fans and try to get a W tonight.”
  • On him going to Hartford, “trying to nurture the young kids and be a leader on and off the ice and be a good presence in the dressing room. Try to make the guys down there better pros. It was tough going down there and getting the news that I would be going to the A. I held no grudges, it’s part of the game and I dealt with it.”

He said, “I don’t know how long I will be up but I will take advantage of it.”

They need a presence like Asham. Nobody else can really throw haymakers when needed.

Well, when Asham runs for office, I'll be sure and vote for him.

I have to admit I like what Asham had to say. He's not the end all be all answer..but imo a better option than Dorsett ( yes I know he is playing too).
