The Blueshirts will hire two-time Stanley Cup winning defenseman Ulf Samuelsson as an assistant coach, the Daily News has confirmed. Samuelsson, a former Ranger, most recently was head coach of Modo in the Swedish Elite League.Ive said it before and I'll say it again: Ulf Samuelsson is a piece of shit and he is bad for hockey.
“What Ulfie was (as a player) was a hardnosed, competitive, son-of-a-‘B’. When he’s on your side, you just loved ’em,” said Ray Ferraro, Samuelsson’s Rangers teammate in 1995-96 who now works as a TSN analyst. “As a coach, he is extremely hardworking, and very, very diligent about trying to be better.”
He wasnt an agitator in his playing days, he was a dirty player. There is a difference. And its funny how in their article, the Daily News conveniently ignores the fact that Samuelsson was notorious for ending guys' careers.
The bottom line is, Ulf Samuelsson contributed nothing to the game of hockey and he doesnt deserve to be involved in this league in any way, shape or form. The fact that the Rangers are giving him a chance is a disgrace.

The Rangers organization must be so proud to have such a classy guy on their payroll.
