I find 17 assists in such a limited ice-time in 42 games impressive anyways. He led NYR in assists on PP too (9).
I think Mats fits with the Rangers because he plays with a lot of hart and works his ass of every shift despite of his size. We need guys that can do something unexpected as well. A team full of grinders is very predictable and will be easy to figure out.
A good summer in the gym as well as some work on his skating and positional play in the defensive zone would do wonders for Mats. I believe he will be a very important player for this team. It would be stupid to give up on him now. I hope he will be a Ranger for a long time, fun to have a Norwegian on my favourite team.
Alltough the games against Anaheim, San Jose and the last game vs Islanders was brutal I think he has been good. Most of the other games he has played I think he created a lot of oppurtinities for the team.
