I live about as far East as possible, I watch more East Coast games then I do West Coast games, but nice try with the West Coast Bias. We all know its the East Coast that has the Bias.
Just because people didn't "take notice" until the playoffs doesn't mean he didn't break out until the playoffs. He was exceptional in the regular season. Girardi was trash in the playoffs defensively and McDonagh still made that pairing amazing.

And for all this talk of OEL being so much better than McDonagh offensively, they tied each other in points last year despite McDonagh having something like a quarter of OEL's PP time.
