Comparing players like Stepan, Stralman, McDonagh, Girardi, Del Zotto, Hagelin and Anisimov to Jagr, Shanahan, Mara, Rozsival, Drury, Redden and Avery just shows.

The current players just fit together.
What makes you say that Mara didn't belong on this team heart-wise? His lack of speed would be a big detriment sure. But his guts and love of the team didn't seem lacking to me.

I remember him saying he wanted to retire a Ranger. He couldn't keep up speed or skill wise, and Tortorella doesn't like him, but Mara wasn't just here to cash a paycheck.
