Duchene is the man, btw. Love him. Exactly the type of character you want in your lockerroom. He's grown on my 10X over last 32 minutes.

MDZ's skating is marginal. Not his greatest strength, but I wouldn't say he's under-average. It has improved over the years, and there's certainly room for more improvement.

Rangers like to collapse down low. Pressure coming from the forwards. Torts wants his dmen around Lundqvist. It's the system the Rangers play, not so much MDZ being lazy or non-aggressive.

Watching 1 game doesn't say much, either. The entire Rangers team played like horse **** last night. Disgusting performance. You guys definitely need to watch a couple of games before coming to a decisive conclusion about this pros/cons.
That letter and most of what gets out of ROR camp is actually his dad, who should've learned to shut his mouth long ago.

I'm a giants and knicks fans so the rangers are one of the teams I'll watch if the Avs aren't on when i wanna watch Hockey, so I get that MDZ isn't O'Byrne out there, but as you yourself said it's not a strength of his and that's something I think is crucial for an EJ partner, whoever we get needs to be able to skate well to cover for EJ so that EJ can finally open up with some regularity. That's why I'm so high on the likes of Kulikov and Sekera, it's a trait that I think an ideal EJ partner needs to have.
