I believe that MDZ is every bit the 2nd pairing defenceman that Sauer is and because he brings more offence to the game should be ahead of Sauer on the teams depth chart.

Stralman playing with MDZ has disaster written all over it and I would prefer to have a defensive defenceman with an offensive minded guy on all three pairs.

McD - Girardi
MDZ - Staal
Stralman - Sauer

This would allow Torts to evenly run each pairing mostly even.

Sauer would get some additional minutes playing the PK

I think spreading out the defensive depth makes the Rangers a better team as there is less likely of a weak link pairing.
