That being said, with Vigneault liking players to play a defined role,
who gets the bulk of the O-zone starts from the Dmen?
I dunno, seems like the Rangers managed to give up a lot of odd man rushes or breakaways even under Torts. I'd be interested in seeing stats on that compared to other teams in the league (like Vancouver)
e: good question on the defensemen, I feel like he wants to bring out more offense in McDonagh, but still might see Staal and Del Zotto getting more O zone starts.
