Better defenseman, or better defensively?

My vote is the same either way.

McDonagh is so overrated on these boards. He's a decent top 4 defenseman imo, nothing otherworldly. He made a poor decision that led to a giveaway on the leafs first goal last night.

Hamonic is being very underrated here. McDonagh is good(better than Gomez) but Hamonic is very solid too. Its very tight between the two.

Don't get me wrong the kid is solid, but so is Hamonic. Hamonic is more physical though.

I love how important it is to Ranger fans to hear themselves say McDonagh is amazing.

They're extremely close, one just gets more face time being on a big-market team.

Oh no stop the press McDonagh is human he made a mistake. Him being a decent top 4 is laughable.

I say even, both are very strong in their own end but neither brings much offense.

And lol at McDonagh being a decent top 4, there isn't a team in the league where he wouldn't immediately be on the top pairing.

Hamonic is a really good defenseman, the best one on the Islanders and their best player besides Tavares. But with that said, they're not close. McDonagh, easily

One gets more face time because he's simply the better player. 'Nuff said.

Or because his team played in the playoffs and he played very well and other fans got to see it...

Pretty much this. If and when the Islanders make the playoffs, prepare for Pierre to go off on one of his tirades about Hamonic ALL SERIES LONG. Then he's going to be rated as a much better Dman.

Not because his play is significantly, better, but because his name is thrown out there more. This is a popularity contest. I watch EVERY Islander game and about 85% of the Rangers. They're VERY close.

How many Ranger fans watch more than 20 Islander games? Almost none I'd bet.
