You can't say enough about a guy who battled knee injuries and set backs all season long and has come in and played this role for the Rangers. He may not have a letter on his chest anymore, but he is as much as leader as anyone on this team.

?He?s got the emotion of a young kid. As I?ve said all year long, I think it?s good, no matter if he struggles in a game, whatever, just him being in the room, the way he practices, it?s a great view for young kids, because he is full of enthusiasm all the time no matter if it?s going well or going bad. You?ve got to give him some credit. I had him written off. I didn?t think he was coming back at all after this injury. And every day you?d see him and he punched the clock. And good for him. To spark us ? it?s good stuff.?
