The question is are the Rangers players getting beat up & injured because of the team's lack of toughness.

Yeah there's no such thing as. enforcers anymore. Toughness means being able to dish it out and take it. Rangers have some tough guys on this team. Stepan.... McDonagh.... Girardi.... Miller..... there's nothing soft about those guys. They don't dish it out, but they are warriors none the less. Can say what you want about Girardi, but that guy has taken a beating through his career, and has played through a lot of pain and injury.

Sorry, but enforcers DO still exist. They just aren't the one-dimensional players of the past.

Girardi is a war horse. His injury is not because the Rangers aren't big enough or tough enough. However, Fast getting blasted into the boards is another story altogether. Eventually, that kind of injury was bound to happen on the Rangers because opponents like the Caps have no respect for the Rangers physically. They are by far the least physically intimidating of any of the potential playoff teams. This is especially true after the Habs added Ott and King.

Fast may only be the beginning. How long before Nash gets run at when he makes a move towards the net. How about Stepan getting blasted by Wilson early in the 1st period of last game? He avoided serious injury, but that was just good fortune. How long before Henrik gets bowled over again and doesn't get up?

Putting the injury issue aside,it's clear to me that the Rangers do not play as well when the opponent takes the physical initiative to them. Isles do it every game against NYR. Caps will do it from this point forward. Even the Pens do it, as they did in the playoffs last year. And if the Rangers draw the Habs in the first round, you can bet that they will try it. Why else did they go out and get Ott and King, if not to bolster their physical game for the playoffs.

It is so damn frustrating to watch this Rangers team, with all its talent and a HoF goalie, be undone because the coach/GM stubbornly refuse to deviate from some pipe dream that they don't need physical players on the fourth line and defense. If the Rangers had players to deal with the players such as Wilson, Winnick, Orlov, Orpik, etc. on the Caps, they would have a much better chance of beating them in the playoffs. Mark these words: Ott and King and some others on the Habs are gonna take runs and target the skill players on the Rangers in the first round.

Remember when the Rangers traded Kris King and Tie Domi for Eddie O? That trade still bothers me today

This will not deter the physical teams from their antics.
