Thank you.

McDonagh is great because of his skating and he's a pretty strong guy. I love him and think he has top pairing, two-way d-man potential if he ever starts to use his skating ability to its full potential. But Staal is a monster and it's a shame this board appreciates him less and less every season because he's not the shiny new toy.
