Ryan McDonagh with Steve Somers

Very good listen

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/?podcast...g=&dcid=CBS.NY

Ryan McDonagh conducted a hockey clinic yesterday. He loves being a Ranger and playing in NY. Sean Avery has helped him find his way around the city. McDonagh feels Marc Staal will play at some point this season. Loves playing with Dan Girardi. The Rangers group gets along and it is a very tight room. McDonagh talked about adding offense to his game.

He's really becoming a solid two-way defenseman.

I like that he's more confident on offense this year... rushing the puck, pinching in, engaging in the offensive zone.

We are all seeing why he was taken so high in '07. He has skills and his physical skills give him an edge over almost everyone int he NHL. He has been creating chances using his strength and speed which has helped his confidence. Great pick-up by Sather.

Imagine if he'd have gone to Ottawa in the Heatley deal as rumored? I wonder how things would have shaken out then.

I could actually see them getting along very well. Both are health nuts and workout fiends.

The Rangers should keep Avery around with the team after his contract expires. Maybe hire him as the team fashion expert

Love the Schmooze. He's a huge Rangers fan and is one of the few on that station that gives the Rangers any attention. Good interview.

McDonagh is better than "Mark" Staal

Seriously, he is really blossoming into a great dman. He has stepped up so much and has exceeded expectations. Love seeing him pinch in and play offense. One of the goals that got called off against Toronto was from McD skating in with the puck and throwing it at the net from the side leaving juicy rebounds in front. He has added an awesome offensive area to his game. Love this kid

Avery knows where the clubs are in NY. Didn't he ban PA Parenteau from all of the clubs in Manhattan?

With as well as McD and Giradi have played together, when Staal comes back, do you keep McD with Girardi? Staal and Sauer are a pretty solid pairing too, MDZ and Staal could potentially be a top pair with Erixon Sauer being the 3rd pair.


By Mid-season once everyone is healthy and hitting on all cylinders.
MDZ Staal - Top pair
McD Girardi - Shutdown/Top pair #2
Erixon Sauer - 3rd pairing

or

Staal Sauer
McD Girardi
MDZ Eminger
Woywitka

The guy is an absolute stud! Sometimes the deals you don't make turn out to be the best deals.

He may not be better than Staal defensively yet but his overall skillset is better and as a result, his upside is greater than Staal's is. He's a tremendous skater, reads plays well and is very strong in the lower body. We have 3 solid bookend d-men in Girardi, Sauer and Mcdonagh who you can basically stick with a weaker d-man and it will work out. Look how well MDZ has played since being placed with Sauer(who for my money is our soundest defensive defenseman). He now can rush the puck up the ice with confidence knowing that Sauer is back there to protect his rearend.
If Mcilrath continues to devlop and eventually makes the team(2013?), we are going to be very difficult to play against.

Nice to have at least one NY Radio guy who actually can conduct a hockey interview and know what's been happening with the team.

Somers is hysterical. His monologue's at the beginning of his shows are gold.
