MZA makes much better passes than he does.
MZA and Brassard have been what made the PP click, for sure. Pouliot has some good finishes but is still not the kind of physical presence in front of the net I'd like.

Still, Richards will need a point replacement. Though he has not been good, he has been better than any other Ranger forward on the point over the years (Cullen, Kotalik, Stepan, Zuccarello.)

Greg Carey can play the point but it isn't his best PP position. I don't see many guys available in FA that can handle that. What it may come down to is asking John Moore to partner with McDonagh on the top PP and go from there.
