Mironov was solid for us. Not great, but certainly not terrible.
My "worst defenseman" that I can remember is probably Igor Ulanov. He was TERRIBLE here. He wasn't here long, but considering he had a decent (if unremarkable) career before coming to NY, I was amazed at how bad he was. Brutal.
Purinton is up there too, although his absolute willingness to defend his team earns him some points in my book. He was mean, dirty as hell, and took way too many penalties, but he was one of the nastiest players I've seen in a NY uniform. And from all accounts, his teammates loved him. He would have had a better career as a winger.
