Renney To The Rescue

from the New York Daily News,

Tom Renney understands that absorbing some physical punishment is part of being a top player. But Renney has just about had it with the unpenalized bashing he believes Jaromir Jagr receives most games….

“He’s the best player on our team and he is never going to dive,” Renney said of Jagr, who on Sunday took an on-ice pounding from Montreal defenseman Mike Komisarek and the usual over-the-air hammering from NBC analyst Mike Milbury. “He’s always going to play the game straight up to the best of his ability. Whereas those that oppose him - that stop him - in my mind, play outside the rules of the game at times.

“And for whatever reasons, it seems to go unnoticed because he doesn’t fall down; he doesn’t embellish; he’s strong; he uses his size well; he’s a puck-possession guy. And yet, protect the integrity of the game and allow the player to play.
