> Drove Dolan to fire Gorton and Davidson
> Ruined Rangers' rebuild with muh unnecessary grit

Tom Wilson is a New Jersey legend, and he gave Vegas the easy win of this trade.

Before the playoffs ended, Drury asked all the staff members at the Rangers to think of a player who would add physically and grit to the team next season. Little did everyone know, Drury decided to get every name in the hat.

I wouldn't say it was a fair trade, but both teams won it, the Knights managed to get a third rounder for a 4th line forward, while the Rangers added some much needed physicality

Hard to stand up to Wilson when you play 6 minutes per game.

Wow, Rangers really want to get back at Wilson huh, massive overpayment for Reaves, though adding him, Blais and other may make them better

What in the world? This is like the Zac Rinaldo trade all over again.

On the flipside, Reaves is a much better player than Rinaldo. At least historically, Reaves is a surprisingly good skater and can suppress shots decently, and he picked up some offensive awareness after going to Vegas. But still, why throw assets at a player like this?

Where are all the Rangers fans that mocked every Kassian trade by saying NY wasn't interested in another heavyweight? How does that crow taste? squinty smile

I really hate to be asking this...sigh...here goes.... Do you live under a rock!?😉

Just teasing. It's because of this well reported brawl:
https://youtu.be/T4JJhC5iISg

... And the revenge the next game:
https://youtu.be/FJ364V_vWN4

Since then:
- Wilson was only fined;
- NYR fired their GM because he wouldn't denounce Wilson's violence;
- NYR overpaid for Goodrow to add grit;
- NYR signed Tinordi to add grit;
- Buchnevich was (badly) traded for Blais to add grit;
- NYR lost this trade for Reaves, an enforcer;

Tl:dr: NYR makes repeated bad hockey decisions in the name of violence since they had their ass kicked by Wilson.

Forgot about this. It’s less that I live under a rock and more that I don’t obsess over hockey and pay more attention to my wife and kids.
