It's not that MDZ does nothing well. It's that I don't see him doing things THAT much better than the other players I see around him in McDonagh, Staal and Girardi. He is a good player. On this team he is the #3 LD. Staal, McDonagh and MDZ don't look good on their off-side. Staal and McDonagh are better than MDZ.

Maximize the asset. Puck-movers are at a premium in todays NHL. Whether that is right or wrong that is for another discussion.
Is the quote that you posted a secret that just you and maybe other Rangers fans know?

What does he bring? People call him a puck-mover, I don't see these great passes he makes consistently. Maybe a random home-run pass to Gaborik or Nash. McDonagh and Girardi make those passes too. He doesn't join the rush more than anyone else. He doesn't create chances on the blue-line with the puck. What does he bring?
