There is good reason why Feds has multiple rings. He is AWESOME in the playoffs. When the games matter the most he will be there and he will lead the youth on this team by example. He is a quiet champion, with the will to win, the will to be the best by beating the best.
Unfortunately I think this whole statement might be better stated in the past tense .
I hope he proves me wrong
Feds is done. The only way he can be effective in an offensive role is if he played with a center who could create and stickhandle his way towards the net (think Malkin, or on this team, Anisimov, occasionally) so that Feds could band home a quick pass or a rebound. Playing with Boyle? Renders Feds useless, unless your big on tying the puck up along the boards in the o-zone.
He is a utility player - 3rd /4th liner who'd be comfortable in any forward spot in the line-up as needed. At his salary, a veteran with multiple SC rings - he's more than adequate in his role on this Rangers team.
