Malhotra

IMO I think the only thing stopping Malhotra from being the power foward the Rangers hoped was himself. This guy showed that he can absolutely run through people...but he didn't do it enough. He showed that he could be a leader on the ice and was willing to drop the gloves to stand up for his teammates...but he didn't do it enough. I had thought he was one of the best hitters the Rangers have ever drafted...but he didn't do it enough! For his offensive ability, I guess he was lacking in that department somewhat, but he could have gotten better. I think there comes a point where some of the blame for the player not rising to the top is lack of confidence in himself and his abilities, and not the coaching staff, or organization. He was young enough to succeed elsewhere, but he never elevated his game to the next level.

Imagine if you could have put Sean Avery's heart into Manny's body?
