McDonagh and Gorges are a little too high. Girardi a little too low. Garrison making the list is a head scratcher.

No, simply ranking defensemen on their defensive ability.

Marginally, although Keith is way too low.

Good job Rangers fans.

Most surprising name on the list would be #20.

Which they should have been without question. Someone had to lobby hard for him there, and I doubt it was an Islanders fan.

Staal should be higher. I think the concussion downgraded him in the eyes of nonranger fans.

Fully agree. HF has kids still learning the game on this list above a guy that was a key defensive player in Cup runs like Scuds.
