The Rangers consistently play better with him than without him. His plus/minus is not a mirage or an aberration. One can argue how much of a positive he is but it's an indication that he is certainly not hurting his team.

Again, not saying he is in any way special and if someone wants to give us better value, fine.
Wow, the Malik lovefest is on! The team plays two good games, and Malik and dependable are used in the same sentence for the first time all season! He played a near flawless game! (I guess the lazy hooking penalty was what made it 'near' flawless.

His plus/minus is not a mirage or an aberration! Wow. I forget chosen, were you in the other thread defending Malik when everyone was all over him a couple of weeks ago, when we were losing?
