I like how he gives him credit for the improved powerplay, but then creates excuses and shares the load for his defensive ineptitude. Wonderful.

Who is Dellapina? Haven't heard much about him.
Dellapina has been the Rangers beat writer for the Daily News for over a decade. He also has written in the Hockey News about the Rangers. He himself is a pretty fair hockey player. I skated against him in a senior league.I surmise he is the best scribe in the metro area. I'll let other members agree or disagree with the statement.
