I mean, if you can convince Babcock to trade Datsyuk to the Rangers to play on the checking line, I would be all for it. Can't get Datsyuk, maybe Bergeron? What about Kesler or Toews or Jordan Staal? Can we get an example of what current NHL players you consider good checking line centers? If you can name 15 better than Brian Boyle at HIS job, I would gladly admit that NYR needs to improve that position.
He's on a hot streak once in a blue moon. I don't see this great skating. I'd prefer a guy that's defensively responsible but isn't a shutdown guy that can skate and pass.
