Very acute point, but to be fair Ryan McDonagh is as good a skater as any Dman in the league. MDZ has taken noticeable leaps in his offense and defense over the past year and a half. Add to that he's on a steal of a second contract and has finally looked poised playing on the right side with the shutdown Staal. Very fun to watch.
