Last year he improved on defense but wasnt given PP time so he suffered on offense.
All i ask is to give him one month next season. Just one. If he is paired with a McGillis type defenseman, gets PP time and isnt used on the PK and still isnt playing well then get rid of him. The kid has too much talent to give up on when he was never used right...
He improved on defense? He still has no clue about how to take the body, especially when a feeble pokecheck will suffice. His shot from the point constantly gets blocked. His decision making leaves little to be desired. He is an obstacle to the young defenseman whole will be a part of the Rangers' future. At most he has one year left as a Ranger, only because Sather hasn't found anyone foolish enough to give up anything of any consequence for him.
