going forward, it's McDonagh(not that it really matters because if you chose Staal, Girardi or McD, they are all fairly equal in ability and none of them are that wonderful!


As presently constructed, the Rangers are a bottom of the pack team because they don't have much top tier talent and their depth stinks!
This is extremely false on two counts. Girardi is not equal to Staal/McDonagh they are both far better than G, who I love but let's be real he played way over his head last year and came back down to earth this year. Also, those two ARE wonderful defensemen. Staal is a defensive beast and was developing his offensive game pretty well until he got injured. McDonagh is a fantastic two-way defensemen who can skate very well and is great positionally. I don't know how you can watch either of them and not see that they are wonderful defensemen.
