Rangers need that type badly
Exactly, special skaters. And I don't think they lack toughness on the back end. McD is tough as heck. Staal is very strong presence when he's healthy. Girardi hits and can hold his own.

It's the rest of the D that gets a bit soft, Moore has the size to become more tough. But MDZ, stralman, never going to be that physical. But I'm not sure if that's really needed.

The rangers are getting pummeled right now by a team with who on defense? Chara and a bunch of kids.

This idea that many here have that the rangers need like 15 top 4 DMen is looney. They need 4 top 4 DMen. Staal, girardi, McD, and whoever the 4th is. Trade the rest for offensive players.
