Ryan McDonagh is the player whose game will improve with experience and he will be our best defensive defenseman hands down. Some of you Ranger fans need to stop falling in love with Lundqvist and Staal and use a little common sense in analyzing their overall games.
Beg pardon? You and I (and I think most people would agree with me) are clearly watching two different Marc Staals. HOF shutdown defender is indeed a bit much, but you can't even be an average defenseman if you have "horrendous balance."
