McDonagh's offensive skills are actually under utilized as Tortarella absolutely REFUSES to use him on the power play, going with 4 forwards and MDZ. Anyone who watches the Rangers would probably agree with this.
Summary: [My] player with a small sample size, the best at his position for the team last season, is more proven than [your] player with a small sample size, the best at his position for the team last season, and you should watch [my] team to know [my] player is thus legitimate while [yours] isn't.
