Who exactly would you classify as an elite defenseman on the Rangers? Pleasew don't tell me Staal or even McDonagh who's light years better than Staal. Neither guy is a legit #1 defenseman on a #1 defense pairing.

I suggest you either rethink how you use the word elite here. There are really no elite defensemen in the league at all with the possible exception of Chara and he was exposed terribly by the Black Hawks speed in the SCF.

McDonagh and Staal are not even top 10 defensemen in a league that is devoid of so called "elite" defensemen!
