Buch has had an outstanding season that's been tainted by a legendarily unlucky December
I haven't been able to watch as much hockey as I used to (getting old/having a 4 year old will do that to you, I guess), but I've been able to watch the last few games and I was very impressed with Buchnevich. I think the biggest improvement is he's moving his feet in all areas of the ice and has become tougher to play against. I would've said this without the beautiful pasting he gave Marchand. Buch and DeAngelo are two guys that have really responded well to the tough love approach.
I think, more than tough love, what Buchnevich has responded to so well is actual communication. I'm absolutely not a fan of Quinn, but the difference between him and Vigneault on that front is night & day
i continue to believe a younger better value more talented buchnevich stays and the older more expensive chris kreider leaves.
if push comes to shove i mean.
I see what you did there.
i mean we do need an enforcer. no ?
I've always been "meh" on Buchnevich, but he's developing a little attitude and that vicious crosscheck on Ratface was an absolute thing of beauty.
Really proud of him. A true American.
Won't see that type of grit from a soft, perimeter-playing European. Really glad to see Buch finally step into his own.
I want Buch resigned to like an 8-year contract now just because of that cross-check to rat face.
We need a Rat Exterminator meme going......i don't have the creativity and/or photoshop skills to make it happen though.
I don't know why people call Buchnevich soft?
He seems like one of the last players on the Rangers that I'd really want to piss off.
He has one of the biggest mean streaks on the team, much more so than Kreider & Zibanejad even though people would think he’s the softest on the line

Kreider would be the last person on the Rangers I fight but Buchnevich is in the top 5.
DeAngelo has hands. Like legitimately has hands and clearly knows how to fight.
Buchnevich just seems like hes liable to explode on you at any moment and I would not want to be a part of that.
Kreiders obviously tougher than Buch but I think Buch has the most edge of the 3. Mika is a lot heavier but I’m not sure he’s tougher than Buch. Mika has never had a fight, Buch has had 4
Russians have a strong tradition of combat sport and usually know how to defend themselves.
Panarin doesn't kick six feet in the air because he does line dancing.

Modern day Mark Twain, best buch is yet to come.
Kreider, Lemieux, Smith, Lindgren, Trouba , Skjei, Staal, Strome, Mika, Fast, Tony D would all be higher on this list for me. That said I like everyone else thought it was great what he did going after Marchand, it was well deserved.
Buch has thrown down before and I think handled himself well too.
The "soft Euro" thing is overplayed. Taking out Marchand was beautiful to watch. All the blindside hits and dirty plays he's made, Buch just made himself revered by the team and around the league.
There are lots of guys that would probably wish they did that to Marchand and I'm sure that Lindgren and the rest of the team really appreciated it. Also sets an example that we won't get pushed around.
Turning himself from sniper Buch to power forward Buch has been one of the surprising developments this season.
