Chara, Boychuk have better shots than any of the Rangers D. Krug mostly just had plenty of space.

Del Zotto does not have any real specific attribute that wows anyone. His best play comes by taking the puck from near his blue line to the neutral zone and giving it to someone else who can take it into the zone and go to the net. He is capable of making good transition plays as long as he skates the puck instead of just throwing it up ice.

Rangers were collapsing because they did not force the opposition into mistakes often enough, did not knock players off the puck very well and did not win enough board battles in their own zone. They relied on sticks in the passing lane, positioning and gap control which is good, but it's not going to cut it when the opposing teams game plan is to get the puck deep, win a battle and get it back to the point for a shot.
