Rangers have a great problem on their hands with the quality of defensemen in the top 6 and being able to debate who should play with who.

Like Inferno stated, it is not about defined roles to label a player or pair, but rather balance a more offensive defenseman with a more shut down defenseman. The beauty of this top 6 is no one defenseman is completely on one end of the spectrum or the other. Girardi would be considered the shut down D but he can chip in offensively. Staal same thing considering his offensive game has improved every year. Stralman I'd say is in the middle. Moore is by no means bad on defense but I think he could improve in that area and clearly he is effective with offense.
