Like seriously though, in the Rangers system when the puck is in the corner the defensemen just stand in front of the net and block shots. There's absolutely no skill involved to do that.

The Rangers system is awful and brutal to watch. It makes terrible Dmen like Bickel, Eminger, Sauer, and MDZ look ok. For their sake hopefully Lundqvist doesn't get hurt, because if he does their defense will be exposed for what it really is and that team will drop like a fly in the standings.
I tend to agree, but to be fair to The Rangers. They've built a team that supports this sort of system so why not play to their strengths. They have players that are willing to play that style and it suits them really well. Perhaps that's why they chose Dylan Mcilrath, they think his style of play would really compliment their style and he would have the opportunity to succeed in that system/
