I've been a big supporter of MDZ since day one, and as people have noticed, my confidence has never wavered in him. Right now he is doing a great job becoming a two-way defender, gaining confidence in himself, and instilling confidence in his coach.
We'll start seeing him slowly bring that offense back to his game, as well as his minutes staying constant around 22-24 a night. Torts needs an offensive horse on the back end and MDZ / McDonagh will be those guys for this team. MDZ WILL be a 45-50 point defenseman in this league who plays a reliable defensive game with some snarl.
I think Tortorella is going to try his best to mold McDonagh into Dan Boyle, very similar players in style. Torts did a lot for Boyle, I really hope he is here long enough to do the same for McDonagh.
