The Rangers have a decent bunch of guys with puck handling skills - Nash, Brassard, Stepan, Zuccarello.

However, when it comes to the physical elements of puck possession, such as protecting and being hard on the puck, staying strong on one's skates, corralling the puck and shielding it with the body, board play, etc., the Rangers are deficient in that area. They could definitely use a Dubi-type player in that regard. In the playoffs, I felt like Boston exploited our weaknesses along the boards and inability to protect the puck.
