Well, Malakhov and Kasparaitis were mostly crap as Rangers. Valentenko could be a solid Ranger if he ever gets the chance. He's earned it. Is he an All-Star in the making? Probably not, but he's nothing to scoff at. He's a pretty good defensive player, physical and he hits like a truck. He's really strong, deceptively, the way a guy like Fedotenko is. Not much offensively, but he has a rocket of a shot. Not a bad third-pairing option.
