I never said he doesn't play defense. I never said he doesn't backcheck. But Gaborik also backchecks. Richards also occasionally pretends to do what he calls playing defense.

That doesn't make them two-way guys. Ryan is a guy that spends 80% of his energy in the offensive zone.

The Rangers need another guy like that. Our defense and goaltending is strong enough that the occasional lapse in forwards' defense doesn't really matter, as we have most of our forwards committed to playing just as hard on the defensive side (they should, as many of them can't play offense to save their lives).
