Defensive Pairing 3
Again, the word we use for our defensive pairings is “balance.” We see it once again with our third pairing.
Brad Park was offensive machine along the blueline. Ron Greschner was as tough as they came.
While Park never became New York’s equivalent to Bobby Orr – as many hoped he would – his 378 points in 465 games is nothing to sneeze at. Rangers fans were extremely disappointed when he was shipped off to Boston.
Greschner is the Rangers all-time leader in penalty minutes with 1,226. The only issue comes when realizing one of these guys will have to slide over and play the right side as a lefty.
Still, we love the toughness, grit and leadership Greschner brings. Oh yeah, he can also do a little in the opponent’s zone too: 610 career points (seventh all-time).
