No problem with Stralman or even Eminger though Stralman's the better player.
Don't like Del Zotto very much on the right side and right now I don't see him as a top pairing defenseman. I see him as a top 4 with very good (not great) puck moving skills. As a pwp point man he's okay--he handles and distributes the puck well but he doesn't have a great shot. That hurts his effectiveness. The Rangers need another d-man good on the pwp with a better (and accurate) shot.
Honestly I think all of our blueliners have above average shots, but the "game plan" (or at least what like..3/6 of them are told to do) is to try and bank it off the back boards for someone to pick up in front of the net. While people tend to say Girardi couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, it seems somewhat apparent that he's putting shots wide deliberately. If only we had legit and consistent net presence, it'd be a good strategy.
