Upfront, the only notable righties are Callahan and Stepan, and on defense, Girardi and Stralman. Ranger fans bemoaned Girardi's presence on the powerplay, but with the lack of any righthand shot, it was based on necessity (unless you enjoyed watching Richards circle the wrong direction towards the boards - over and over again).
Except Girardi didn't play on his off side so handedness didn't matter - we still couldn't taken one timers.
